Best Western French Quarter Landmark
Hidden charms at a familiar value brand hotel.
The location of this hotel is slightly off the beaten tourist path across from Armstrong Park, but Best Western delivers the goods. If you're not expecting hip or fancy, you'll be happy with these rooms, which have all the necessities. In addition, the courtyard is lush and charming. Breakfast is included, ditto for Wi-Fi, and this smoke-free hotel is also pet-friendly. There's an oddball cocktail lounge that seems to open on a whim, and if the bartender is mixing, we suggest you order a retro libation and settle in. The property is about six blocks from the river, and just minutes from Bourbon Street and all the French Quarter goings on. Avoid wandering alone late at night, especially along Burgundy which can be dimly lit in this area.
