A respectable guest house on the quiet edge of the Quarter.
Since the French Quarter is compact --- only one square mile --- visitors staying in the district are always close to the action. When it comes time to leave the party behind, however, it's smart to choose lodgings in the Quarter's nether regions. This circa 1848 Creole cottage is one such place. It's located on the neighborhood's uptown border near Rampart Street, which continues to be the favored stomping grounds for local jazz musicians. Although the inn features brick and gables, most of its charm is due to its location. The fourteen rooms are comfortable but basic, best suited for travelers who plan to spend most of their time exploring. All rooms contain period furnishings, private baths and individual temperature controls. In pleasant weather, guests may breakfast on the veranda. The complimentary Wi-Fi and parking could tip the scales if you find yourself waffling over the French Quarter's many lodging options.
