We recently visited New Orleans between Christmas and New Years. Our stay at the place on Chartres was terrific. Check-in was very seamless and the property manager sent detailed information and videos of how to get in and the in's and out's of the rental.
The location is one of the rental's biggest benefits. It's walking distance to essentially anywhere in the Quarter and it's particularly close to the French Market as well as having easy access to Frenchman Street for live music. Food and drink are abundant in the area, but the location is also a more residential part of the area so it wasn't too loud in the evening.
The condo itself was very clean and cozy with everything you may need for your home base on a visit. It's truly an ideal space for couples. The stairway to the loft is a pretty tight spiral so maybe not the best for small children and the elderly. The half bathroom on the first floor is a real plus as well. One of the best features of the apartment is the private balcony that overlooks Chartres. It's very peaceful to sit and sip a coffee or a drink out on the balcony and people watch during the day or relax in the evening. Prior to the trip, I had been looking for a nice, private and peaceful place to propose to my girlfriend. This place fit that bill perfectly and we got engaged out on the balcony.
I can't recommend this rental enough, it's truly a prime located condo with a very definite New Orleans-esque feel in the architecture and in the interior decor. Jen the property manager is excellent and if we ever look to stay in the area again, this will be at the top of the list.
Top notch experience and great memories were made on our trip.
