Reviewed 28 March 2012

Just off Jackson Square perfectly located for exploring the Quarter with a lovely little courtyard with lounge chairs sprinkled around a small pool BUT...the inexpensive rooms are inexpensive for a reason. Rooms marked 'inner' do not face the courtyard. They face nothing. They have no windows. This wouldn't be so bad except the lighting is inadequate with one, dim general illumination lamp and only one, dim bedside lamp. If you're there with a date, better hope she's illiterate because only one of you can read in bed at a time. Breakfast is included but it is minimal, couissants, coffee and "fresh" orange juice which wasn't.

Room Tip: Don't be fooled by the term "Inner" rooms. It doesn't mean courtyard facing it mea...

To our knowledge, the term "inner" is not used anywhere in our descriptive materials or on any 3rd party sites. Our "Interior Windowless" room category is actually among the most popular of our room types for guests who desire our great location and lovely historic facility, but at the best value possible.

Location was amazing! We came to New Orleans for a bachelorette party - 6 girls and 2 rooms (119 and 120) and couldn't have asked for a better location to be. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to party and walk home!

A friend had recommended this hotel and we were not disappointed. What a special find to enjoy an elegant lush courtyard just for us guests - right in the middle of the French quarter! You can walk nearly everywhere you would want to go in New Orleans. A quiet oasis in the middle of the city. Rooms were charming. Only small issue was the hard pillows (bring your own if you like soft ones). Other than that, the staff was incredibly helpful, going above and beyond ordinary attention to answer our questions and meet our needs. Hotel is highly recommended and we'll definitely stay there again!

I stayed at the Place d’arms for New Year 2010 but I am not able to select that date on trip advisor. This is a great great little hotel, what it lacks in modern decor it makes up for in location and charm. Located right off Jackson Square you could not be better placed for the French Quarter. The rooms are good but not great, quite old and could do with an update, but that is part of the charm of most New Orleans hotels. If you expect bang up to the minute hotels in this city you will pay a very high price for it and it will be a far more corporate experience. The hotel is great value; the staff were wonderful and really made our stay memorable.
New year in Nola is a crazy time, with the New Year celebrations as well as the sugar bowl college football, the town is filled with revellers. However you are never far away from a quite street or bar to take a rest from it all.
This hotel has charm, its like stepping back in time, from the gas lamps on the streets you could very well be in the 19th century.

Delightful European style hotel with secluded courtyard. Friendly helpful staff. Right in the heart of French Quarter with next-door parking facility. Had trouble c bathtub draining and they fixed it right away. Great price.

Room Tip: Ask about street view vs courtyard view when booking
