Great people, great location in beautiful old building

Hotel St. Helene is charming and is in the best location- walking distance to everything! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful- could not say more about their customer service. Rooms are clean and pool is fun- very cool atmosphere for staying in the French quarter!

Deaux Deaux is a great spot for strong hurricanes in a fish bowl. Refills are only 5 dollars. The hand grenades are amazing. Service is awesome, friendly and entertaining.

Awesome location, room could use a refresh.

The hotel is charming, with tall (10 feet ish) ceilings and a beautiful courtyard. We stayed in one of the garden view rooms. There were 8ft tall shuttered door that opened into the courtyard. The rooms were cool and bright, but the Ac was pretty noisy and the bed was pretty uncomfortable/squeaky. Overall a great place to stay. They just need to give the Ac a little attention and get some new beds to make it an awesome place to stay.

Fantastic short stay

We'd read a number of negative reviews about the hotel, so we were a little worried about what to expect. But, our fears were allayed upon arrival. The room was small, but not overly so, and provided us with everything we needed. We were able to access the tv, control the AC and room fan and the bathroom, while small, was modern. We did have a room with a window onto an interior courtyard with stairs, but it wasn't really a problem. The staff were polite and courteous and the location was excellent. We'd happily stay here again.

It's well worth it to travel outside the French Quarter; there is so much more to the city than that small part of town. And while it is charming, there are a lot of wonderful dining establishments sprinkled throughout the city.

St. Helene

We checked into 2 rooms for a 1 night stay. It was a great location, and a good value -- especially with breakfast included. We were disappointed that the bellman left at 4 pm right before we checked in, so no one available to help us with our luggage (since one of the rooms was on the second floor) -- but they did help us at check out the next day. We loved the hotel. Nice pool (although not heated) and deck area. We would definitely stay again.
