A secure hideaway in the historic Treme district.
One block into the Treme district adjacent to Armstrong Park, this collection of renovated rooms and cottages sits at the edge of the French Quarter and is ideal for walkers and explorers. Originally established in 1993 as the Garlands Guest House, the name was changed to Jazz Quarters in 2011 by new owner Amy Sins, with each room, suite and cottage dedicated to a jazz great. From Trombone Shorty to Kermit (Ruffins) and (Pete) Fountain, all accommodations are spacious and en suite, though a few have older style plumbing and hand-held showers. A large gated parking lot is a plus. Armstrong National Jazz Park, with its fabulous collection of sculptures and leafy gardens, is great for strolling by day, but best to avoid at night. In general this is on the grittier edge of the Quarter, but you're close to everything, including the Marigny neighborhood, where Southern breakfasts earn raves. In addition, there are some fun bars along Rampart Street.
