Located by the French Market and Mississippi River in the heart of the French Quarter, the Hotel Villa Convento is a warm and cozy guest house, offering guests the personal service of seventh-generation New Orleanians, the Campos. Rumored to be the legendary House of the Rising Sun, this building is a Creole townhouse dating back to the 1830s. Here you can encapsulated by the sounds and smells of the French Quarter.
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

Granted you sleep very little when you are in New Orleans, but when you are trying to sleep outside a courtyard and the guy that rented out half the hotel for his sons 21st birthday is partying outside your door until 3am, it gets a...More
I just returned from a 6-night stay over Mardi Gras at the Hotel Villa Convento. Yes, this is an older property, but clean and well maintained given its age. Renovation and upgrading is currently being done and has been delayed by the cold wet winter...More
OK folks, if you insist on everything being perfect and cookie cutter like a Holiday Inn, they have those in NOLA too. If you want to be amongst it all in the French quarter, this is it! It does have an elevator for those who...More
