Location and price are great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The courtyard was very nice...and necessary..as our room was very small.  They did a great job with the space allowed...the French doors opened to a nice courtyard which gave a feeling of space. We don't spend a ton of time in our hotel rooms when we travel so it was ok for a few days. If you are older or have anything that makes it difficult getting in and out of a shower/bath this may not be the place for you. I'm sure all the rooms are different however my husband terms it the "shower of death". Simply nothing to grab on to and a huge step up to get in. This probably wouldn't be our first choice...I think we would stay here again. Overall a nice place and a excellent location...give it a shot if you don't need a lot of space to spread out.

I loved my stay at Inn on St. Ann. Excellent customer service, beautiful rooms, and a great location made this place wonderful. There was a mix-up on my reservation, but the problem was solved quickly and hospitably by Johnny. His welcoming and accommodating attitude were such a warm introduction to New Orleans. I will be back!

We found a deal on amazon  local for the inn on st. ann and we were not disappointed. Although there are a few hotels operated by the same owners, this is a great little boutique hotel. Just a few blocks off bourbon street, it's conveniently located in a "shotgun" style house.

The entryway has exposed brick walls and beautiful floors. The check in desk is all the way in the back, next to the most darling patio. Although we were never awake early enough to have breakfast, I heard there were pastries and coffee in the mornings. We were early for check-in, so the concierge kindly stored our luggage and directed us to a parking deck.

Our room was beautiful: two queen beds, a walk in closet, a mantle over a closed off fireplace, high ceilings, beautiful bed linens. The bathroom was small but workable with granite or marble tile, but beware the slippery bathtubs!!  We were on the second floor and the staircase was steep but not treacherous. All of the staff were polite and this was a great stay. Not only would we stay here again, but we have recommended this hotel to everyone we've talked to!

I am being tough, I was going to give 5 stars, but there were a few things: there was no early check-in, but they made the effort to be ready by 12:30 (we arrived at 9:30).
Forgot to get 1 soap (usually is one for the shower and 1 for the sink.
Had to ask for towels, they didn't time their cleaning service well (granted we slept in late).
BUT! it was clean! clean! clean! -Because the streets are so dirty- I can't believe I didn't see any nasty bug in the room or bathroom!. So I assume they fumigate constantly.
Didn't even try their breakfast, the neighborhood was great, plenty of restaurants museums, and little parks. Bring your walking shoes!
I would stay here again, the price was fair, 86 for weekdays and 126 for weekends. (we stayed for 4 nights).

Place was a little bit out of the way for the places that I like to frequent when in New Orleans. But for the regular tourist in Ne wOrleans location is prime.  Rom was completely renovated, very charming, and a great BED!  The outside patio was also great

Found this hotel through Expedia. Great location, friendly people. They don't have a "breakfast" available, just coffee and fruit, but you should be eating in the restaurants anyway. We stayed on the third floor, so it helped burn some of the calories consumed in this great city.

The staff is friendly, and were willing to accommodate - we arrived at 9 AM and were able to check in, and they let us have an extra few minutes on check-out withuot charging. Free, fast Wi-Fi, and a beautiful patio area were added perks.

Only drawback? Thin walls. We were up on the third floor, so you really didn't hear any street noise unless a truck went by, but we had interesting neighbors in the next room who were apparently into S&M, and we could hear it all.

Excellent visit.  Super clean and nice staff.  The location is perfect for walking anywhere you need in under 10 minutes.  Just 4 minutes to Bourbon St.   The free WiFi is actually fast; not like a snail I see at Hilton and Marriott.  Great value for the money too.

First of all the staff is amazing. Truly top notch, especially considering how affordable the hotel is. Second, its far enough off the beaten path that you can get some sleep at night with out people screaming right by your windows. The beds, were amazing! The rooms were extremely clean, especially for such an old historic building. I cannot wait to go back and stay here again!

I loved this Inn! It was adorable! Me and my family stayed in the Marie Labauve Suite that was across the street from the main building. The suite was on the second floor with some very steep steps leading to the suite...watch your step! Parking was about 5 blocks but was just $20/night with in & out privileges. The suite was very cold & drafty...thermostat only went up to 86 degrees but it felt like 60, especially since it was so cold outside and it was working overtime! There were only 2 wall units (1 for bedroom & 1 for the living room area), so we were a bit cold. The bed was comfy and so was the pull-out bed! It was great to have a fridge (although only suites at this hotel have them). Now for the bathroom...the shower head was extremely low-flowing, but was very relaxing at the same time! I loved the dual sinks & the huge tub!! I did not experience any issues with the wi-fi...it came in perfectly! I felt like we had the hotel all to ourselves because we did not hear any noise from other units nor the outside! Lastly, the hotel was situated away from French Quarter noise & viewing distance to Armstrong Park. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!!

Found a deal on GROUPON! This is an awesome place to stay. You are close to Bourbon and Canal. Close to everything! The Red Dress Run happened right  outside the Hotel which was awesome because I was able to get some good pictures of the runners in costume.                                                                              

I will be returning :) Bathroom was clean, fresh towels daily, Room Service was Awesome! The staff was great! I love the Patio right outside my room too :)

Very disappointing.  Nice people but no customer service and no breakfast.  Four night stay in Marie Laveau apartment 45.  Nice, authentic space,  roomy, stark,  cold.   No information on the city or area in room.   We had to ask at check-in desk and all they had was a map.  Room was only cleaned the first day,  after that no service.   We had to keep reusing the "deluxe" Styrofoam coffee cups day after day to use the krups coffee machine in room.  We had a light bulb break day 2 and brought  it to desk clerk attention but  they didn't replace.   Room hadn't been swept well before our arrival or during our stay.   Not a place you feel comfortable walking around barefoot due to everything sticking to your feet.   Window treatments don't operate.   Some stuck in open position,  some in closed.   Nice location,  liked the Aveda amenities,  quiet room,  nice charming courtyard.   If you're looking for a room and no service amenities,  this might be good for you.   Otherwise,  there are better options in the French Quarter!

Vacation Cut Short

I would love to say wonderful things about the Inn on St. Ann, but I find myself without many words to do so. My booking experience with the staff at St. Ann was quick and easy. I was able to get the Cristophe Suite at a lower rate than advertised on the website for the 2014 Essence Music Festival. I was able to add each of the individuals in my party to the room reservation should any issues occur. My arrival experience followed suit, where my friends and I were given our keys, escorted to the front door of our suite and given recommendations of eateries in the area. That unfortunately is where the pleasantries stopped.

Upon settling into our suite I found that the larger of the two bedrooms in the suite was deceptively "clean". Gritty black dust coated most if not all of the wood flooring in the bedroom, prompting a vigorous dusting and washing of my bare feet. Upon opening the dress to put my clothes away I found the same gritty black dust in most of the drawers. Trying to excuse the dust I tried to clean the floors with a damp towel with little to no avail.

After a restful nights sleep, I visited the front desk to get additional towels delivered to the room. The staff that morning were very friendly and we were told that the request had been put in the system. I came back to my room to get ready for the day and passed the housekeepers cart, but no housekeeper in sight. I just figured she was cleaning the room adjacent to the cart. On our way out of the room later that morning we saw and waved to the housekeeper. After adventuring in the city we came back that evening to find that though the housekeeper had seen us leave, our room had not been serviced, nor had any of the towels we requested been delivered.

We carried on to get ready for the festivities that evening... As we were preparing to leave I went into the bathroom to find that I was not alone. There was a very large cockroach sitting high on the wall near the ceiling. I tried to kill it, but failed as it was out of reach, so I closed the door. Wanting to get to out of the room to our planned activity I stopped by the front desk to alert them to the issue. We were told that the problem would be handled in our absence. When we returned to the room, it appeared that nothing had been touched, not giving much hope that our request had been obliged. Shortly there after the roach presented itself crawling across the floor. We quickly fetched a staff person to come kill the roach for us.

A little frazzled we attempted to carry on with the fun of our evening and went back out to Bourbon Street. Upon our return late that evening, we started to settle back in, only to be greeted by yet another roach in our midst. We quickly killed this new visitor, but had reached the end of our rope. We once again came down to the front desk to speak with the manager regarding the issue but found none on duty. We were told that the manager would be back at 7am in the morning. So bright and early we woke to speak with the manager but were again disappointed. No manager came to greet us, nor had any of the other staff been alerted to our issues. The staff member that morning obliged us in our request to cut our reservation off as we had found other accommodations, and give us a refund.

Upon returning home I decided to give the manager a call to discuss my disappointment with the property and the lack of response from staff regarding our issue. I shouldn't have been surprised that the woman I spoke to wasn't the least bit concerned about our plight, nor had she even heard of the issue happening. The woman I spoke with didn't seem very keen to talk with me, as it took her at least 10 minutes to even apologize, between meager attempts to come up with an excuse. As a working member of the hotel industry, I find it very disconcerting that if a guest suddenly cuts their reservation in half to find other accommodations because of an issue, that a red flag wasn't issued to the staff or managers to learn why or to follow up.

So I say all this to say, that this a lovely looking property, but looks can be deceiving. I wish I had better things to say, but as evidence of my stay, I don't.

Adorable hotel, super nice staff.

We booked this through orbitz as a deal for 1 night before we switched to the Sheraton on Canal for a friend's wedding.

Honestly we spent the whole time at the Sheraton wishing we were still here, the atmosphere is so cozy and comfortable, it feels like you're staying at your own place, not some stuffy hotel, and everything was so impeccably clean and well-maintained, it was wonderful.

The hotel is perfectly situated near lots of awesome things to go and do, with restaurants, bars, and historical sites just a few steps away, but it's on a nice, quiet side street that keeps it from being a tourist trap, or so loud that sleep is impossible.

I will definitely be looking up the Inn on St Ann the next time I come to Nola.

Loved this hotel! The location was great. Second time we have stayed in one of the French quarter guest house hotels. The first time we stayed at the lamothe house which was so nice being so close to Frenchman street. Inn on st Ann gave us a different experience being so close to bourbon and so close to the gay bars. The room was fabulous, stayed in the upstairs Marie Laveau suite and it was fabulous. Tall ceilings in the living room, great big bathroom and nice bedroom, comfy bed. Loved this place and would stay here again

CAUTION!!! VERY SLIPPERY BATHTUBS!  I can't express this enough.  My wife fell in the shower the first night hurting her side.  Please be careful.

A lot of other reviewers (before mine) are fairly accurate about the Inn on St. Ann.

We also came here at a discount (Amazon Local - $249 for 3 nights; about $34 for taxes when we arrived = about $300 total).

Knowing what we know now; I'd recommend flying into New Orleans and taking a taxi to this hotel instead of driving in.  The hotel discount is fairly nice until you realize that you have to pay about $20 a day (CASH) to park overnight at the closest parking garage that offers this service.  

I wouldn't have minded paying for the parking so much if it wasn't for the walk (See the pic of the map I uploaded to see what I'm talking about. ~~Sorry, I called it a parking lot instead of parking garage on the picture~~ ).  

It's 6 BLOCKS from the hotel.  And this is not the nicest part of the neighborhood that we're talking about either.  There are homeless people strolling around (because the shelter is right across the street on Rampart St.), and there are really no other options but to walk down Rampart St. to get to the hotel with some kind of feeling of safety (since going down other streets will get you into dark, quiet, residential (and probably not advisable) streets unless you walk the 3 blocks down to Bourbon St. first.

We realize that we got this hotel at a discount, but it would be nice if they made a deal with a rickshaw / taxi driver and just charged a little more for the room.

While the room was nice and clean all 3 nights that we stayed there; the service seemed to degrade each day.  First day we had fresh fruit available in the lobby but the next two days the bowl was empty.  The first two days we had fresh towels, but the last day we didn't get fresh towels (even though they cleaned the room).  And they never threw away our garbage in the garbage can.

Oh, even though they sell up their proximity to the Louis Armstrong park; it's not worth it.  The park is basically a place for homeless people to sleep / hang out in.  We didn't spend too much time in there after a young girl went running across the park being chased by another girl screaming,"SHE'S GOING TO KILL ME!".

Also, word of warning about getting to Bourbon St. from this hotel.  It's 2 1/2 blocks away through mostly (because there is one open bar on the way) dark residential streets.  

And (FYI) you will end up in the homosexual section of Bourbon St. first (Intersection of St. Ann & Bourbon St.).  We don't have a problem with that lifestyle, but I thought you should be aware of it if you do.

Even though the room looked nice, and the staff were friendly; I'm not sure I would recommend this place to my friends / family based most of the other things I just mentioned above (even with the discounted rate).  But I hope this review at least informs you about what you're getting.

I travel to New Orleans 2 or 3 times a year as time and money allow and unlike many tourists I much prefer the small hotels tucked deep in The French Quarter.
This location could not have been better for my taste.

This company, French Quarter Guest Houses, has taken 4 great and historic locations that had become somewhat run down and badly in need of repair and turned them into clean, comfortable, well appointed and reasonably priced hotels. The other locations are The Inn on Ursuline, The Lamothe House and The Inn on St. Peter. I previously had stayed @ two of them and vowed never to return to either because of the condition and crazy owners. Now under this ownership I would happily book them again and look forward to doing so.

Clean rooms, new fixtures with marble tile in the bathrooms, thick towels, crisp new sheets daily, in room coffee makers, a nice flat screen and many other little touches that made my stay very pleasant and relaxing.

I stayed across the street from the main building in "The Marie Laveau Apartments" that made me feel more like a resident of The Quarter rather than a guest in a hotel with a locked street entrance and small courtyard.

The staff was efficient, helpful and pleasant without intruding in any way and unlike other place I've stayed actually seemed to be genuinely concerned that my stay with them was as good as it could be.

Located a brief walk from anywhere in the Quarter or The Frenchman Street nightlife yet seems miles away from the Bourbon Street madness.

If I was forced to find fault it would be the minor inconvenience of having to go across the street for the ice machine and there are no room safes - otherwise this hotel was all and more of what I look for in a French Quarter hotel.

There are many lodging options in New Orleans and this will be my first hotel choice next trip to The Crescent City.
