Conveniently located close to Frenchmen Street

  • 5 of 5

This was our third consecutive trip to New Orleans and every year we have stayed at the cottage.

We were saddened to learn of the passing of George, the site caretaker (getting to sit in the courtyard and learn about New Orleans from him was one of our favourite experiences) but you will be in good hands with his replacement Michael. Michael loves the city almost as much as George, and he has a wealth of knowledge about the city’s history, local events occurring, and many points of interest, including excellent food recommendations.

We had many groups of friends come to the city this time round and all of them stayed at different locations in the French Quarter, so for this review I’ll focus on what sets the cottage apart from other locations.

1. Safety. This was a concern for other groups of our friends that stayed in different sections of the city (one group actually cancelled their booking upon arrival and scrambled to find a new place to stay; you will NOT have to worry about that with the Cottage). The front of the Cottage is gated and requires a code to enter, as are each of the individual units (we are fans of the keyless entry). I have never felt unsafe in this location, nor this neighbourhood.

2. The private courtyard. The cottage has a well maintained private green space; in the day it is quiet and tranquil, and by night you can faintly hear the brass band on the corner of Frenchmen & Chartres Street luring you out to experience all the music Frenchmen Street has to offer.

3. Location. You are within walking distance of most of the attractions in the French Quarter and, if you are not much of a walker, you are a short walk to the streetcars to get you around.

4. Amenities that not all other locations provided:

• A Washer/Dryer with laundry soap & dryer sheets

• Dishwasher and an array of dishes

• Ice Maker in freezer

• Plenty of towels, hand soap, toilet paper, tissues

• Extra blankets & pillows stored in cabinets

• Plenty of wardrobe, closet & drawer spaces

• Very consistent/reliable air conditioning

• Wifi

The unit has always been clean when we arrive and we’ve always been comfortable during the stay. Having George (and now Michael) around or near the site is very reassuring as a traveller; they have always been available for any hiccups or questions we’ve had along the way.

The Cottage is a little hidden gem in the city, with its own unique history and has been a welcoming part of our yearly excursions to New Orleans.

A Phenomenal Place

  • 5 of 5

The property at 1428 can only be described by three words: homey, elegant, and wonderfully located (that may have been four).

The rooms and decor were absolutely delightful and truly felt like home while in NOLA. The location was wonderful, within just a few minutes walk from many of the city's best spots on offer.

Finally, the true hidden gem of this property was the property manager, Michael. He was a remarkably host, ensuring we made it into the property easily and safely, and checking in periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. He was a wealth of information on the best spots to visit or sights to see.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this glowing review! We are always grateful that our guests notice the attention to detail that we work hard to provide. Just a quick correction - our Cottage on Royal is located at 1430 Royal Street. We enjoy secure gated entrance through the courtyard at the building next door. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay!

Frenchman Street... Shhhhh.......We want to keep it a secret..

  • 5 of 5

Everything I love about NOLA and then some. The shotgun house is quaint, adorably decorated, equipped with essentials, and close to everything. Frenchman street which is a block over is where the locals go for real music, real food, and real NOLA.. The only thing I would advise is use a white noise app if you are a light sleeper. I am a very light sleeper but with the noise on my phone it wasn't an issue.

Clean, warm, beautifully furnished with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Cottage on Royal so much. Mike was a huge help with getting us setup, recommendations, and being available throughout our stay.

The place is lovely. Beds comfortable, and the courtyard is great to hang out and relax.

The location can't be beat. We walked everywhere. It was only a few minutes walk to everything. Very convenient.

We highly recommend.
