About this Hotel

Price From $79

'Hood The heart of the French Quarter, a few steps from Jackson Square and Café du Monde, known for its beignets.

The Gist A compound of eight restored town houses that date back to the 1700s, Place d'Armes offers a total of 84 rooms with exposed-brick walls and French country decor. The six street-facing rooms have balconies complete with hanging plants and views of horse-drawn carriages passing by. A courtyard with a pool adds to the hotel's appeal. Online reviewers overwhelmingly praise the hotel for its prime location, although light sleepers should be warned of the street noise from rowdy late-night revelers.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $79, rooms with balconies from $129. Rates include breakfast.
