Prince Conti Hotel
Travel Blogs from New Orleans
It was going to be Dario's birthday and we often try and gift ourselves trips with memories rather than typical box gifts with bows on top. It was pretty easy choosing New Orleans. We are huge fans of music and Cajun food. With those items on the menu...what could possibly go wrong?
The day we were departing for our trip I looked at the …
We took the streetcar from Canal Street into the Garden district which was originally named Lafayette but was later incorporated into New Orleans. The name later on was used by another city in Louisiana. We joined a tour group with a very well informed and entertaining tour guide. The tour began in the Lafayette cemetery. Legend says that people …
Up later this morning and had a great breakfast at the café at the hotel. Headed down toward and along the waterfront. Great day for walking. Temp is probably about 20 centigrade and very little wind. We sort of wandered without any specific destinations in mind. Walked in the French Quarter and the Business and Warehouse district. There are a …
Uneventful flights from Bellingham to Seattle to Houston and finally New Orleans. It is11:15 pm here. More tomorrow.
They were a few red eys floating around New Orleans early on Sunday morning after we touched down! Not only on Kirst and my part but the literally tens of thousands of Univeristy of Kentucky fans that had watched their basketball team march on to their championship the night before. They streamed out of what seemed every hotel in New Orleans ( …

Historical Traveler Reviews Prince Conti Hotel New Orleans
We just got back from a stay at the Prince Conti and I must say I was a little wary of staying there based on reviews only. Rest assured all the good things you read here are true. We were allowed to check-in early and our room was great. Huge, comfortable bed and a small sitting area. Very quiet, despite being so close to Bourbon St. The staff was VERY friendly and knowledgable. When they say they act as concierge as well, trust them... They know their stuff. The recommendations they gave us for dinner and tours were exactly what we were looking for. The only drawback was that there are no coffee makers in the rooms, which to caffiene hounds can be a little irritating, but the on-site restaurant will deliver breakfast to your room for only a $2 charge.
I found The Prince Conti on a web search. It had a special rate of $49 a night, which is extremely rare for any NO hotel. I read the reviews on TripAdvisor so I thought I would take a chance. What a perfect place to stay. This is a small European style hotel that is clean and very confortable. The rooms are smaller than usual, but very well maintained. And, the bed was sooo comfortable. Just a block off Bourbon St. and within walking distance of Harrah's casino. No noise filters for the B.St. revelers. Parking is $20/day, which was a surprise, but the rate includes unlimited ins and outs. No continental breakfast, nor is there coffee available. The restaurant at the hotel will sell you a large cup of coffe for $2. Breakfast will cost you $7.95 and above just about everyplace. Krystal is a very short walk down Bourbon St. and one gets 3 eggs, toast, and a slice of bacon for $2.99. Prince Conti was a very pleasant experience. Highly recommend.
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! Perfect location right off of Bourbon St..across from De Ja Vu for breakfast or late night snack..they have the best biscuits! We arrived early morning Sunday and they checked our bags until we came back from breakfast which was still before check in time, but we got rained on and allowed us to check in 3 hrs early. The first room's view wasn't pleasant and the window leaked. All it took was a simple phone call and our room was changed to a bigger room with a sitting area at no charge. The location is at the beginning of Bourbon St so if you do some shopping on Canal St or you catch the trolley, you don't have a long walk back to the room. The customer service was EXTRAORDINARY!! My buddy and I requested some weird things and they actually delivered! I don't ever have to look for another hotel because I'm staying there every time I travel to the Big Easy. Clean rooms, no noise, A+ customer service!!
Paradise in new orleans
this hotel is steps away from the night life of NO, beautiful and clean rooms, courteous staff... there is not a better place to stay, especially for the rate!!
Will stay somewhere else next time
Just returned from 5 days in New Orleans where we stayed at the Prince Conti. The location is close to Bourbon Street and the price was great, but the room was not. The wall paper was torn, the bedspreads were frayed, the furniture had lots of nicks and they needed to clean more thoroughly (there was a potato chip behind the chair and hairs on the floor in the bathroom). The towels were rough and almost every day the maid forgot something (wash rags one day, hand towels the next). To be fair, housekeeping was quick to correct the problems when we called.
However, next time we'll spend more and stay someplace else.
Great hotel & location
The Prince Conti hotel was a wonderful place to stay. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the valet service was very convenient. Located within walking distance to many attractions; very close to Bourbon Street but with minimal outside noise. Price was low for all the amenities offered, would definitely stay there again!
Good hotel, great deal
I stumbled on the Prince Conti while searching the internet for a place to stay for my trip to New Orleans. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. The room was large. Our room was in the annex building facing Dauphine Street and the rooms there take up the entire foor. The hotel is centrally located. The Bombay Club downstairs is very nice also. Will stay there again.
Our decision to stay at Prince Conti was really a shot in the dark. We read a few reviews and decided to chance it and stay there. We arrived early (before the 4:00 check in), but we were allowed to check-in anyway. The front desk rep. told us that the hotel had valet parking and that we should bring our car around. What she didn't mention was that it would cost us $20/day to have the car parked there. They completely avoided mentioning this during the entire check in process, which I found a little shady. It was listed in the charge list, but it was my fault for not looking closer. Nevertheless, it should have been made verbally clear, instead of them trying "slip one by" the guests. We would have parked there anyway, but it didn't seem like a good business practice.Customer service was reasonable - one of the valets was a little snippy and rude. Other then that, the staff service was ok and generally unremarkable.We were very impressed by the appearance of the building - it is obvious that it is well kept. The room we stayed in was VERY nice. It was clean, well decorated, and generally pleasant. We had two TVs - one in the bedroom and one in the lounge area. We requested that our room be away from the street and we were well accomodated. The only downside is that the walls were thin and we were occasionally awakened by the activity in the room adjacent to ours.Overall, I would recommend Prince Conti. It is off of Bourbon St. which makes it centrally located; yet, you don't have to deal with the noise. We came back to our room to freshen up numerous times because it was so close to everything.
GREAT service and rooms!
I took my girlfriend to New Orleans for her birthday and we couldn't have chosen a better place than the Prince Conti Hotel. It was romantic with great service and rooms, plus we were a block from a the Bourbon Street. We'll return.
Prince Conti - Quaint and Clean
My husband and I stayed at the Prince Conti in June and we were both quite pleased. The rooms were very clean and they always provided plenty of towels. The hotel is just a block off of Bourbon--we felt very safe walking to the hotel at night. Mr. D's right next to the Prince Conti offers room service, but we just ate in the restaurant two mornings. It was quite good. The staff were always friendly and helpful. I searched for a clean hotel that did not have the extras--pool, weight room, etc. We did not plan on spending a lot of time at the hotel--so I did not want to pay for extra amenities. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New Orleans.
