The condo is located in a prime location in New Orleans Historical French Quarter. Just a few blocks from Bourbon
Street. The location is perfect! As you can see in the pictures the 1350 sqft two bedroom, two full bath condo has just recently been renovated and furnshed. Everything in the building and unit is highend. You will not be dissapointed by the accommodation or the location. You are within walking distance of everything New Orleans has to offer. You are even in walking distance of The Mercedes Benz Super Dome. If you want to experience New Orleans the way it should be this is the location for you...
The most common definition of the French Quarter includes all the land stretching along the Mississippi River from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue (12 blocks) and inland to North Rampart Street (seven to nine blocks). It equals an area of 78 sq. blocks. Some definitions, such as city zoning laws, exclude the properties facing Canal Street, which had already been redeveloped by the time architectural preservation was considered, and the section between Decatur Street and the river, much of which had long served industrial and warehousing functions. Any alteration to structures in the remaining blocks is subject to review by the Vieux Carré Commission, which determines whether the proposal is appropriate for the historic character of the district. Its boundaries as defined by the City Planning Commission are: Esplanade Avenue to the north, the Mississippi River to the east, Canal Street, Decatur Street and Iberville Street to the south and the Basin Street, St. Louis Street and North Rampart Street to the west. Bourbon Street is a famous and historic street that spans the length of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. When founded in 1718, the city was originally centered around the French Quarter. New Orleans has since expanded, but 'The Quarter' remains the cultural hub, and Bourbon Street is the street best known by visitors.
The most popular section of Bourbon Street is 'Upper Bourbon Street', an eight-block section of popular tourist attractions. Bourbon Street begins at Canal Street (across Canal is Carondelet Street in the New Orleans Central Business District). The straight street continues downriver, southwest to northeast a few blocks from and roughly paralleling the Mississippi River, and comes to its terminus at Pauger Street in the Faubourg Marigny. (In the 19th century, Pauger was named as a continuation of Bourbon Street.) Bourbon Street was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the ruling French Royal Family, at the time of the city's founding.
From Dumaine Street to Pauger, Bourbon Street is largely residential with scattered businesses still catering to locals. Also on this stretch of Bourbon exists (Jean) Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, which is a very popular bar, showing the style of the original French buildings (before the Spanish iron balconies) which burned in the first Great New Orleans Fire (1788).
Though largely quiet during the day, Bourbon Street comes alive at night, particularly during the French Quarter's many festivals. Most popular among these is the annual Mardi Gras celebration, when Bourbon Street teems with hundreds of thousands of tourists. Local open container laws in the French Quarter allow drinking alcoholic beverages in the street in plastic containers (drinking from glass or cans is prohibited). The streets are packed with tourists drinking Hurricanes, Hand Grenades and Huge Ass Beers - a large plastic cup of draft beer marketed to tourists at a low price. Other festivals and events focusing on Bourbon Street include French Quarter Festival and Southern Decadence.
One of the oldest and most popular restaurants on Bourbon Street is Galatoire's, which was founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire. Known for years by its characteristic line snaking down Bourbon Street, patrons would wait for hours just to get a table — especially on Fridays.
Our stay was July 2016. Here's how we would rate it:
Location A ++ - Within walking distance to everything but just far away from the gong show that is the Big Easy. Great spot.
Decor A + - Newly chic/retro renovated, everything great, very clean, working order, kitchen great ,huge TV's in each room,
Air Conditioning A + - was over 40 degrees every day we were there and was nice to get back to the condo to that.
Safety - A + - See location comments, keypad entry fabulous
Contact / Response - A+ - Britt and Gerard were great / professional and usually within the hour. Awesome customer service.
Proximity A+ - House of Blues across the street, two blocks to Bourbon, 1.5 blocks to Canal shopping / Casino
, 10 minutes to Jackson Square, some great restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk...
Overall a great location, a beautiful place and a good value price wise for what you get....
But!...and hate to mention this because of all the positives...we would be remiss if we didn't mention what other posts have mentioned re the noise in the alleyway behind the master bedroom. There was the usual NOLA noise, partiers yelling, a parade one night, and that's fine, hey... it's New Orleans, that we can handle and it usually passed quickly, but a couple of nights it sounded like a "Fight Club" event was taking place right down below...then EVERY morning at 6:00 AM the garbage trucks would come by the alley, and EVERY morning set off the alarms of the row of cars parked overnight as it did so, and then at about 7:00 AM , the three Kings / Philosophers (as we referred to them) would be debating life in the alley until they started work at whatever time...from 7:30 AM onward, sure was quiet then, but we were long up by then. We didn't get much sleep in the 4 nights and wish we could say it was because of other reasons. Our daughter in the other bedroom, however, never heard a thing, being in the middle of the condo.
So just be forewarned about that.
Would we rent it again? Yes, probably (but would bring earplugs), because the positives out weight the only negative.
My family and I stayed in this condo from for the 4th of July/EMF weekend. From the time we booked Brittanie and Gerard were very helpful and responsive. I can tell you that the condo looks EXACTLY like the pictures! The secure entry into the building and the unit is a definite plus. The unit is decorated wonderfully and has plenty of houseware items in stock (towels, tissue, paper towels, cleaning supplies, detergent, shower gel etc.). It's a stone's throw to shopping, restaurants, bars, and clubs so everything is at your fingertips. There's plenty of sunlight from the backend of the unit and the closet space is amazing. I found myself taking several bubble baths in the master and enjoying the enormous King bed and flat screen in the bedrooms. The bedding is very elegant and the flooring is posh! The electronics are all up to date and I enjoyed listening to music on the cable tv or IPod docking station during my down time. :). The kitchen is also very nice and well equipped. I can't say enough good things about the property and the owners. I will be back next year!
This is really a wonderful property. There are two big bedrooms (one of them really big!) and two bathrooms. There is lots of room and it's all extremely clean (and the exposed brick is just gorgeous!). We were able to see everything the French Quarter had to offer since it's within walking distance of everything. The owners are extremely amicable and very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this rental if you're coming to New Orleans!
I would highly recommend this rental! The owners got back with me with any questions I had very quickly and they were very accommodating. Super clean rental and building. Beautifully decorated, A/C worked great, and great location! Pricing was more than fare...I will be back :)
This property was amazing! Perfect location, in walking distance of so many great restaurants and fun shops. Everything was so clean and comfortable, such a nice condo. Had a fantastic experience, will definitely be returning!
I live in New Orleans and needed somewhere to stay downtown for my wedding weekend with my bridesmaids. This place was more than we could ask for. Clean, close to everything, and beautiful. Very spacious. Well equipped with furnishings. We felt at home all week. Easily accessible. The owners were easy to work with and very accommodating to our specific needs. I will be recommending this location to everyone. Worth every penny. Thank you again!!!
