The Holiday Inn French Quarter's 1800s Creole-styled colonnades combine a boutique ambience with the reliability of the Holiday Inn brand and an IHG Green Engage conservation label for sustainable, yet comfy, hospitality. Visitors are far enough from the raucous nightlife to sleep well, but still close enough to join the never-ending party on Bourbon Street, while on-site Cafe Bienville serves traditional Southern staples like chicken and waffles. Enjoy cocktails in the dark wood interiors of the Bienville Lounge, or step out onto the poolside terrace by the cafe, framed by native greenery and take a plunge into the heated waters.

Neighborhood
Located right on Rue Dauphine a block away from the excitement of Bourbon Street, guests at the Holiday Inn Chateau LeMoyne are never far from conferences at the Morial Convention Center, Saints games at the Superdome, or piquant Cajun seafood at Oceana Grill. Staying at the Holiday Inn French Quarter Hotel puts guests a short walk from Canal Place and its elegant shops, or Royal Street for antiquing. A few minutes away, visitors can hop on the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line and visit the Audubon Zoo, or tour the Garden District under a canopy of centuries-old oak trees.
Hints and tips
Spring and fall are New Orleans' busiest seasons, but if you book early and ask specifically, you can get a second-floor balcony room at the Chateau LeMoyne. During Mardi Gras, these rooms command a premium and often book almost a year in advance, so plan ahead.
Book the chic Bienville Parlor Suite and relax on the traditional wrought-iron balcony with a Bloody Bull - the New Orleans - answer to the Bloody Mary - or a pitcher of iced tea.

Great location. OK accommodation.

The hotel is only a block away from Bourbon and three blocks from Canal, with balcony view rooms available. It's a rather old building and smells a little moldy in the hallways. The rooms themselves are fair; no moldy smell, clean enough. The staff are very friendly. The pool only gets sun during a limited time of the day, but it is located in a beautiful courtyard setting. One aberration that happened to me: I was accidentally charged for parking which I did not purchase. The charges were removed right away upon check-out.

Overall good deal for the location

Nothing special about the room I stayed in. There was ac, a safe, tv with hbo...there was no fridge, the room I stayed in the windows didn't open. They have a small courtyard in the middle with a small pool. Just an fyi street parking in the French quarter is not going to happen. The hotel charges $35 a day to valet your car. There is a lot down the block where I parked my car at $25 a night/24 hours. The main draw was location. It is one block off of bourbon st. Also it is centered so you're not on one end or the other of bourbon st. Overall good price for location.

Don't bring a car if you don't have to. Parking it/valeting it isn't worth it.

Terrific location!

I was very happy with this hotel. It is just 1 block off Bourbon Street which made it easy to walk everywhere we wanted. I was looking for a hotel with the French influence and this did not disappoint me. We had 2 rooms both overlooking the courtyard. The staff was very friendly and willing to answer any questions we had. I would definitely stay here again!

It was a great location

We had a great time and could walk to most places. We took a cab to the WWll museum and that was so worth it, plan a whole day.

i'll be back

We arrived at 6am after night flight from SFO. Staff stored our luggage and allowed is to rest up on the comfortable lounges by the pool on their picturesque courtyard. Went out for breakfast and received a call about noon letting us know our room was ready. Even gave us a balcony off the busy street but where we could look down to the river. Can't say enough about how we were treated. If you are looking for over the top luxury and large rooms go elsewhere.. if you are looking for great service and a flavor of New Orleans this is the place. Easy walk to any part of the French quarter. One block from Bourbon, far enough from the noise but convenient. We'll be back.

Great Hotel

Cant fault it, we arrived very late at night, but no problems with checking in, the night staff were great. Room was big and clean, furnishings were a little worn, the beds were comfortable which was good as we had been travelling and just wanted to sleep. We had a balcony room and it was great for morning tea or just watching the world go by The bathroom was very clean and the bath/shower easily accessible, no problems with stepping in or out. The staff were fabulous, very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and the concierge gave us plenty of recommendations for where to eat or where we could visit. The pool area was also excellent, smallish pool but great for that quick dip or just to cool off. Restuarant was only open for breakfast, but that didnt bother us, we ate there a few times and the food was very good with prompt service We were sorry to leave this hotel as they made is feel so welcome, we'd certainly return here again

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

So many places to eat, too many to mention but would recommend Nosh for breakfast, a short walk from the hotel towards Canal St, its pretty ordinary to look at, but the food is cooked to order and tastes great, service is pretty good too. Another place not to miss is the Ruby Slipper on Canal St, the shrimp and grits is wonderful
