Hotel Storyville was very nice & quiet. The walk from Bourbon St. wasn't that far, about a 12 min walk. The price was very affordable. The hotel manager gave us a complimentary upgrade for free. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The room I stayed in was wonderfully designed. I loved all the unique touches that remind me of the Caribbean Islands. The bed was extremely comfortable. I slept like a baby every...

First of all, let me say that we were delighted with the facility. The rooms are quaint and well appointed, the back courtyard area is delightful and relaxing, the kitchen area was well stocked, and it was perfectly located for us. One bus lines runs right by and stops are a block away. Another bus and the street car are...

Possibility to park your car in a private lot. Colours were rich and the rooms had a a sea/beach look. When we arrived we were upgraded right away and we...

Once again I had an outstanding stay at the Hotel Storyville! Barbara runs a wonder quaint hotel off the main strip of the French Quarter.
