My time at the Conti was wonderful. Strides away from Bourbon Street and other French Quarter entertainments, I couldn't imagine a more affordable hotel. While the hotel might not be quite as well appointed as other hotels, and there is no balcony for bead throwing (if that's your thing), the cost and location are hard to beat. Free valet parking was also a nice perk.
We had a nice stay at the hotel with a few mishaps. A big caveat is that the standard room does NOT guarantee a window which I find horrible. Luckily we could finagle a window in exchange for downgrading our king bed to a queen. Also the parking valet was generally horrible--extraordinarily slow, as they did not meet the 30 minute return promise which was annoying. Finally, I was surprised that after leaving our room to explore at 9am, when we returned at 3pm, the room had not been made up which was disappointing.
However, the staff we overall nice and accommodating.
the staff was very friendly.Very close to bourbon street and easy access to the streetcars on canal street.Was there for 4 days of August 2015.Try Emeril's restaurant the food is excellent.Also bourbon House.Great restaurants.
loves our trip to New Orleans! Great experience a lot to see and do in New Orleans. Loved the weekday trip! Streets weren't so packed and we found a lot of nice places to go to and truly enjoyed the drag queen show at lucky pierre's !!!
With its mix of sacred and profane, the French Quarter defines laissez-faire. This 85-block area is home to Bourbon Street’s rowdy bars, as well as Royal Street’s upmarket antiques. The devil’s music—in the form of New Orleans jazz—thrives at Preservation Hall. Nearby, hymns accompany Mass at St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. A block away, French Market vendors hawk foods and souvenirs.
