We had a room overlooking the street. The room was very nice. The only downside was the street noise that went on until around 3am and we could also hear our neighbors talking and laughing when they were in their room. (Saturday night stay) Very close the Mother's Restaurant which is a must visit!

Hipster boutique

Posted Dec 18, 2016
The Old 77 is very well thought out. In no way is it traditional or commercial. Character and detail everywhere. Bed was comfortable, bathroom well stocked. The hotel seems like a few old warehouses next to each other that was converted into a loft style hotel. Noise was pretty bad. The rooms aren't well insulated and you can hear your neighbors talk, their footsteps and even their grunts. My room had outside facing windows but some of my friends staying there had windows that faced other windows not far away. The hardwood floors in my room were extremely dusty. The hotel needs to buy some Swiffer floor mops or provide slippers. Overall I would recommend this hotel to friends who don't have kids and don't mind hearing the neighbors business. Location is excellent.

Good location near convention center.

Hotel is well-designed and interesting- definitely NOT a chain. I'm not so sure how well it would do for families with young kids, the floors are lovely hardwoods. Great for couples or business.

Book Early

Posted Dec 10, 2016
Pros: Love a resurrection!
I guess if I had reserved earlier or paid full retail I may have had a room in the section of the hotel. Our room was fine but just a little meandering distance from the lobby. Not so terrible though. The hotel staff made up for that. Very youthful energetic and helpful in every way. From doorman to desk and table! DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER FOR GOOD FOOD. Restaurant in hotel was excellent! Did not try dinner but breakfast and lunch superb

Hi there, we are sorry you had to go on a little journey to your room, we have 3 warehouses that were turned into our one hotel and all of our rooms have their own character. I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay and our staff made you feel at home. The food is delicious I will agree. Come back and try dinner sometime. Happy Holidays!

Great place!

The hotel was close to everything in the French Quarter. I'd recommend it for any New Orleans traveler!

Nice hotel near fun stuff in New Orleans

Posted Dec 5, 2016
Pros: Ambiance, location, amenities on site.
Cons: The room walls were a little thin, we could hear our neighbors easily.
Location: Great location. Fulton Alley nearby. Harrah's Casino. Barcadia. Great restaurant on site.
We live nearby but love to play tourist in our own city. We like to try different places to eat/stay/play. This hotel was great! Quirky, eclectic and fun. Old architecture meets modern comfort and amenities. Very unique place to stay and will definitely stay again.

Not cookie cutter but also maybe not for everyone

Posted Dec 5, 2016
Pros: Good location. The warehouse district has many places to eat, and is quieter that the French Quarter, which is still very accessible by foot.
Cons: Maybe little more drawer space.
Stayed 5 nights. Speedy check-in. Martha at the front desk was great. Had a 2nd floor room in the "Lafayette" section. Navigated several twists and turns from the lobby to get to the elevator, and there were still several steps to descend on the 2nd floor to get to the room at the end of the hall. Loved the modern yet industrial feel decor. The dresser had only one drawer and 2 shelves for clothes, as the majority of it housed the mini bar and a safe. Bed was comfy. Liked the twin reading lamps attached to the upholstered king headboard. Additional lighting came from the dimmable ceiling fan or mini lamps on the dresser and the desk. . The bathroom shower stall had great subway-style tile on the walls and scalloped-shaped black slate tile on the floor, which all looked very cool, but the lack of a shower door meant water splashed all over the floor. One could hear the movement of guests in the room above as they walked on the uncarpeted, creaky old wooden floors, but I didn't really mind that --- maybe my ceiling mate was relatively quiet. Never heard toilets flushing or showers running in the other rooms, as I have heard in most other places I have stayed, Overall I thought the room was quiet. The 2nd floor ice machine was not functioning but when I asked whether there was ice available elsewhere, the front desk just had someone bring ice to the room. All hotel staff were respectful, helpful and friendly.

HI there, I agree 100% definitely not a cookie cutter, we break the mold, we are like those really funky cookies that you wanted to turn out circle but didn't. You pretty much said it all in your review of us. I am so glad you had a great time and thank you for the feedback on the drawer space. We are in the process of updating our showers and adding doors to the showers. Hopefully will be completed by Mardi Gras. Again thank you and I will be sure to let Martha know you thought she was great. Happy Holidays!

Great hotel, excellent location

Posted Dec 4, 2016
Pros: Location, ambiance
Cons: Coffee service in the lobby is very slow and overpriced, but you can easily walk to several other coffee shops
Location: Within walking distance of the river, French Quarter, WWII museum and more good restaurants than you can name.
Super friendly staff, great location, definitely NOT a chain hotel (that's a good thing), quiet, beautifully restored.

Thank you for the great feedback, sorry you had a wait for the coffee but glad you were able to get your morning fix. Sometimes during the conventions it can get really busy at the café. We appreciate all the excellent things you said about us and hope you will come see us again soon. Happy Holidays.

Beautiful hotel with the best staff!

Posted Nov 20, 2016
This hotel is absolutely gorgeous! We were on the fourth floor in a premier double room and it was everything we had hoped for it to be. It was large, quiet (but for some street noise on the weekends), comfortable - the mattresses and pillows were incredible. They give you an option for what kind of cleaning service you would like each day ranging from none to the whole works. The bathroom is smaller, but you shouldn't be spending a lot of time in there anyway so it didn't matter. The staff were absolutely wonderful. From the doorman to the front desk staff to the cleaning service/maintenance persons, they were all smiling, happy, and helpful at all times. Being treated like one of the family was enough to make me want to return and recommend this hotel to others. It is also within a short walking distance of the French Quarter, River walk, Arts/Factory district. If you are looking for a longer stroll, I would recommend wandering over to the Garden District. Thank you for a wonderful stay! I will be back:)
