About this Hotel

Price From $69

'Hood Uptown, just between the Garden and Warehouse districts. Step out the front door and hop on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar to visit the French Quarter, or just walk to the more than dozen bars and restaurants in a two-block radius.

The Vibe Three buildings originally built in 1897 as townhomes and apartments have been turned into a calm hotel catering to both business/convention travelers and regular tourists. You’ll never forget that you’re in New Orleans at this family-owned joint, and the friendly, local staff are always eager to point guests to the right restaurants and clubs.

Rooms Thirty rooms are spread out over the three historic buildings. Each room has its own individual character and decor—some even have original touches like 12-foot ceilings and fireplaces—but the feel is uniquely New Orleans throughout, with a combination of French and Spanish influences. All come with modern amenities such as Internet access, voicemail, cable TVs, and alarm clocks.

Plus The streetcar is right outside the door and can get you all over the city.

Minus Rooms are slowly being upgraded, so may differ dramatically in quality; check in advance to see what you’re getting. There's no on-site gym, but free passes to a facility across the street are available.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted Yes.

Details Doubles from $69, including breakfast.
