Updated: Sep 24, 2014
2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, sleeps 5

The condo is located in a prime location in New Orleans Historical French Quarter. Just a few blocks from Bourbon

Street. The location is perfect! As you can see in the pictures the 1350 sqft two bedroom, two full bath condo has just recently been renovated and furnshed. Everything in the building and unit is highend. You will not be dissapointed by the accommodation or the location. You are within walking distance of everything New Orleans has to offer. You are even in walking distance of The Mercedes Benz Super Dome. If you want to experience New Orleans the way it should be this is the location for you...

The most common definition of the French Quarter includes all the land stretching along the Mississippi River from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue (12 blocks) and inland to North Rampart Street (seven to nine blocks). It equals an area of 78 sq. blocks. Some definitions, such as city zoning laws, exclude the properties facing Canal Street, which had already been redeveloped by the time architectural preservation was considered, and the section between Decatur Street and the river, much of which had long served industrial and warehousing functions. Any alteration to structures in the remaining blocks is subject to review by the Vieux Carré Commission, which determines whether the proposal is appropriate for the historic character of the district. Its boundaries as defined by the City Planning Commission are: Esplanade Avenue to the north, the Mississippi River to the east, Canal Street, Decatur Street and Iberville Street to the south and the Basin Street, St. Louis Street and North Rampart Street to the west.[4] Bourbon Street is a famous and historic street that spans the length of the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. When founded in 1718, the city was originally centered around the French Quarter.[1] New Orleans has since expanded, but 'The Quarter' remains the cultural hub, and Bourbon Street is the street best known by visitors.

The most popular section of Bourbon Street is 'Upper Bourbon Street', an eight-block section of popular tourist attractions. Bourbon Street begins at Canal Street (across Canal is Carondelet Street in the New Orleans Central Business District). The straight street continues downriver, southwest to northeast a few blocks from and roughly paralleling the Mississippi River, and comes to its terminus at Pauger Street in the Faubourg Marigny. (In the 19th century, Pauger was named as a continuation of Bourbon Street.) Bourbon Street was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the ruling French Royal Family, at the time of the city's founding.

From Dumaine Street to Pauger, Bourbon Street is largely residential with scattered businesses still catering to locals. Also on this stretch of Bourbon exists (Jean) Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, which is a very popular bar, showing the style of the original French buildings (before the Spanish iron balconies) which burned in the first Great New Orleans Fire (1788).

Though largely quiet during the day, Bourbon Street comes alive at night, particularly during the French Quarter's many festivals. Most popular among these is the annual Mardi Gras celebration, when Bourbon Street teems with hundreds of thousands of tourists. Local open container laws in the French Quarter allow drinking alcoholic beverages in the street in plastic containers (drinking from glass or cans is prohibited). The streets are packed with tourists drinking Hurricanes, Hand Grenades and Huge Ass Beers - a large plastic cup of draft beer marketed to tourists at a low price. Other festivals and events focusing on Bourbon Street include French Quarter Festival and Southern Decadence.

One of the oldest and most popular restaurants on Bourbon Street is Galatoire's, which was founded in 1905 by Jean Galatoire. Known for years by its characteristic line snaking down Bourbon Street, patrons would wait for hours just to get a table — especially on Fridays.

Great Condo but bring ear plugs.

  • 5 of 5
The location of this condo is perfect for those who want to be close to Bourbon/Canal street. A short walk puts you Mississippi River. The beds are very comfortable and décor is very modern. Only downside is the back alley. When you are sleeping in the master bedroom you not only hear the trash being picked up each morning, but you also hear the restaurants dropping their bottles into the dumpsters late night. Even with ear plugs it was loud. Recommend bringing light noise apparatus.

This condo was just the best. It is an impeccable mix of modern and old! The decor, the vibe, the building and the location on a scale of 1-10 are an 11. Do not look any further than this condo if you are planning a trip to New Orleans--you will not find better! Just got back from my Bachelorette party here and this condo could not have been more perfect. Thank you!!

Worth the money.

  • 5 of 5
I'm hesitant to write this review because I liked the place so much that I'm worried it'll be booked solid for the foreseeable future from these well-earned reviews. First of all, the location is excellent. It's in the French Quarter but, aside from the House of Blues, there's not much in the immediate vicinity that make the surroundings noisy. It's a short walk from pretty much everything in the French Quarter with the added benefit of some relative peace and quiet for the inevitable rough mornings. Secondly, the condo is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The building is also well-kept, clean, and upscale. We had no problems getting the access information and assistance with other details from the owner. If it's available, I will definitely book this place again next time I'm in town.

A great little condo

  • 5 of 5
Owners were very warm and helpful. Condo was comfortable and clean (beyond our expectations). This condo is right in the heart of where we wanted to stay, but we were still less than 5 minutes' walk from our conference hotel (the Sheraton). We did have one glitch, when the owner seemed to have forgotten to program the entrance code pad with the combination we'd agreed on, but luckily we reached them by phone and got the issue solved quickly. As for price, it was a bit more than what we would have paid for 2 rooms at the Sheraton, but we saved some money on cooking in, and we knew we were paying for the extra coolness/homey factor, which didn't disappoint. Weekend nights can certainly get loud with House of Blues across the street, but that's always the downside of choosing to stay right in the thick of the French Quarter, and the bedrooms were actually pretty nicely protected from the street sounds. All in all, we loved it, and we'll definitely book here again if we have reason to come back to New Orleans.

Fantastic place to stay!! Perfect location, clean, and super comfortable beds. We will be back. A note about the trash pickup, it was a little loud but didn't last long, Certainly wouldn't let this stop me from staying here. Owners very helpful.
