LOCATION! Stayed here for a week in early December, 2006. Older property, but nicely appointed and maintained. We had a large 1-bedroom unit, with a partial kitchen (no oven). Not a problem, as the food in the area was so good, we didn't eat in too often. Staff were friendly and helpful, although they are not staffed overnight. Tremendous restaurant on-site - Giovanni's. Great location - many local restaurants and bars nearby, and only 3 blocks to Bourbon St, 6 or 7 blocks to the French Market or the Riverwalk. Do not rent a car. Not needed, and parking is terrible. Great area for jazz, shopping, eating and drinking. A little noisy at night, if you're a light sleeper.
