"Good hotel at a good price."
Large, comfortable room. Breakfast is sparse but OK. There was remodeling going on so the main entrance was closed and workers around in the day. It's a beautiful old building and should be great when it's finished. Also the St Charles streetcar line is under construction now but there is a bus to replace it, making it easy to get to the French Quarter […] or the Garden District.

Because The Queen Anne is part of a group of B&Bs, it's a bit less expensive than other's in the area. The Queen Anne is around the corner from the main check-in location, but breakfast is right across the street. Our room was fabulous. We had a huge, comfy bed and an enormous bathroom with surprisingly good water pressure for an old building. I would […] definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This was the 2nd time we stayed at The Queen Anne Hotel and will definately stay there again! The location is perfect!

"Won't go back."
I believe the hotel was misrepresented on the website. When we arrived late at night, the exterior was under renovation and the gates were locked. The place was darks nd a little scary. Our taxi driver was good to hang around until we called the number and were told to check in Adblock away at another hotel. Once inside, the house was lovely. But for […] breakfast we were told to go across the street to yet another hotel, which we did. Breakfast ok not much to brag about. Then, the next morning we were directed to go for breakfast at the second hotel where we had checked in. Very confusing and annoying. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Beautuful old home, but the mattress and pillows were SO uncomfortable abd the spider under the covers was very upsetting. When I told the front desk clerk, she didn't even apologize or offer to compensate, but she did giveme a can of bug speay to borrow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close, but not for everyone"
The location of the hotel was perfect and it was a cool old building. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but I'd put two caveats. 1) on 2 of the 3 mornings the continental breakfast just didn't exist. They didn't open the dining area and no explanation was given 2) We had a 3rd floor room in a building without an elevator. We were fine with this, but I think […] it's something that would be nice to know upfront for those who can't do stairs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very cute hotel on the garden district yet still pretty close to downtown. Clean room and great character to the old mansion. My wife and I stayed here as an alternative to always staying in the French Quarter - we loved the uniqueness of the hotel and location and will certainly be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved the high ceilings and the hardwood floors. Nice neighborhood. Great security.

I loved sitting outside in the morning on the porch watching the cars go by. My check out was […] at 11 but I wasn't leaving new orleans until 1:30 so the hotel stored my luggage for me for free.

"Live a little"
I had a very nice three nights at the Queen Anne while in New Orleans on business. I got tired of paying $35 a night to park at a hotel in the French Quarter. Plenty of free parking around the Queen Anne. The first night I was in a small room on the first floor. I called and said I needed a larger room for the second night so I could have a desk to […] do some paperwork on. I got a much larger room on the 2nd floor for a very nominal extra charge. This room was very, very nice, large, beautiful. I had to extend another night and got any even nicer room with a private balcony, same price. Office staff was very nice. Beds comfortable. High ceilings. Fridge and microwave. Utensils and plates in larger rooms. Great for business or pleasure, like having your own mansion. Give it a try. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value--flawless stay"
We were upgraded to their newest facility Prytania Oaks across the street from the Queen Anne & had a delightful 3 day-2 night stay. One block from streetcar stop.

"My experience at the Queen Anne in New Orleans, LA"

"Needs a little more TLC."
The building was wonderful, the room was huge. My issue is an easy fix. Hopefully they got my rating card I left on the table. We stayed in room 152. First of all, the towels were dull and dingy. The tub didn't drain , I had water up to my ankles after shower. The tub needs to be re-caulked. The bed was comfortable, needs new pillows, very flat. The […] one thing that freaked me out was the bedcover, I pulled it back and noticed it was either stained or soiled. A nice cotton blanket that can be washed after each guest would be great. To check in we had to go down the next block and around the corner, which to me was a little scary. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would defintely stay here again"
I would definitely stay in this hotel again. It's in a nice quiet location, handy for the streetcar. The rooms have charm in keeping with the style of the building but this doesn't mean it's lacking in anything - having a small kitchen with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, plates etc is convenient if you want to eat in. Although there's not a big fancy […] breakfast buffet, I found there was plenty on offer - juice, cereals, yogurt, bagels, pastries and waffles. The staff are helpful - there's nobody based in the Queen Anne but there's somebody there 24hrs at the Prytania Park just round the corner where you check in so no problem if you arrive late at night. There is also a small garden that's pleasant to sit in. I recommend it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This hotel is one of three run from the central location half a block away.

"Hyggelig hotel i nærheden af Garden District mv."
Det er et rigtig fint hotel som ligger lige på kanten til det pæne kvarter Garden District. Hotellet ligger tæt på sporvognen som kører direkte til Downtown herunder Bourbon Street, French quarter mv. Hotellet ligger dog lidt væk fra hovedvejen og vejen hertil kan føles en smule mørk og utryg. Der holder dog vagt parkeret fra tidlig aften til næste […] morgen og vi oplevede ikke på noget tidspunkt at føle, at vi var begrundet utryg. Morgenmaden er ikke noget at råbe hurra for (sikkert amerikansk), men der ligger cafeer lige i nærheden, hvor kaffen mv. kan indtages. Hotellet er holdt i autentisk sydstats stil og var virkelig i orden. Intet at sætte en finger på. Skal jeg tilbage til New Orleans, kunne jeg sagtens finde på at bestille netop dette hotel.

Sehr schönes Hotel, Sehr schön ausgestattet, Extrem schöner Südstaatenflair. Gewöhnungsbedürftig ist das Frühstück im gegenüberliegenden Hotel einzunehmen.

Hier würde das Management gut tun eine Zweite Person […] zur Verfügung zu stellen, da es sich ja maximal um 2 Std (07.00-09.00) handelt. Auch etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig ist die Hellhörigkeit der Zimmer, welche durch die alte Bauweise zu erklären ist.

My husband and I stayed at the Queen Anne for one night because we were getting on a cruise the next day. Our flight got in early so we headed over from the airport right away. Our room was not ready but they offered to keep our bags which gave us the opportunity to explore. I'm not sure if it's because my husband and I live in the Chicago area but this neighborhood was absolutely fine. We walked to the French Quarter using the map they gave us at the front desk. It was a great walk! You see so much! It took us about 40 mins. give or take. After some amazing lunch and fun in the French quarter we headed back to the Queen Anne and our room was ready. I felt like we took a step back in time when we walked in to the house. Absolutely beautiful! Our room was gorgeous as well. The bed was super comfortable! After getting ready we called the front desk for a cab and they had one waiting for us within 5 mins. The only complaint I may have had if our stay was longer was the lack of hot water in the shower. Took a cold shower to get ready for dinner but didn't bug me much cause it was just for one night. I highly recommend the Queen Anne and I'm sure the extremely helpful staff would have had the water issue fixed if I called. I just didn't have time to wait for it to be fixed because we had dinner reservations.
"would not stay again"
12/15/14 Janey M
This was my very first b&b stay, and my first trip to NOLA. We spent two nights in the french quarter and I had wanted to stay also in the Garden District so I chose what I thought was a lovely B&B in the Garden District, based on what I had seen on line. I was well aware of the process of checking in at one place and driving around the corner to the other, so this was not an issue for me. I also really enjoyed that it was so close to the street car stop. However, I did not feel safe walking to the street car, even with my husband, who is much more street smart than I. Had I been traveling alone, I would not have walked to the street car, nor would I have stayed in the b&b after seeing its surroundings. This b&b is NOT in the Garden District. There were dilapidated homes all around us, even one that sat empty after an obvious fire. We stayed in a room facing the front and and side streets. The home owners on the side street (the same street you must walk down to catch the street car) worked on vehicles in the street and revved motors and loud stereos until late (2 AM) (and it was not a weekend.) It was so noisy I could not sleep. The bed was also uncomfortable. The room itself was spacious, and very clean. I disagree with others that the rooms were dirty. The bathroom was very spacious and very clean. My husband went to find the continental breakfast and returned saying the staff had complete control of the food and appeared to be rationing the food to each person and would not give him extra to bring back to the room for me. While the rates for this b&b are very reasonable, it was clean and sort of interesting for my first b&b, and I enjoyed the proximity to the street car, I felt safer staying in the Best Western Plus on Rampart street ....which abuts a dangerous crime ridden community just outside the French Quarter. Not my cup of tea, and I wouldn't stay here again.
"Quiet Location Easy Access to Streetcar"
12/10/14 PerryS1949 Abington, Pennsylvania
We had a great stay at the Queen Ann. We were in town for 4 days to see if football game on Saturday at Tulane Stadium. The streetcar took us straight to the stadium and for 3 days prior to that we had an easy commute in and out of the center of town. The room was comfortable and reasonable and offered a little kitchenette with a coffee maker. Breakfast was served daily across the street and the weather was nice so we were able to eat out in the courtyard. The attendant even made fresh waffles for us. If we went back to New Orleans we would gladly stay there again.
"Run down but not that bad"
11/03/14 grumpyprincess13 San Francisco, California
Cons: the main office is down the street at a sister hotel - would have been good to know before check-in. The hotel claims to be "remodeled" but it looks pretty worn. The staircase is missing finials. Pros: it's quiet, and pretty clean. The location is great for catching the streetcar.
"Great Location, Lovely Room!"
I had a wonderful stay @ The Queen Anne and would certainly stay here again! I stayed in Room # 251 for five nights, from 10/7/14 10/12/14. The room was lovely with a four-post bed, many pillows, high ceilings, a TV, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, & a huge bathroom! The fire place gives the room even more character. Also the Main Lobby where guests check-in sells snacks & drinks. This is very convenient. The walk to The Queen Anne from the main hotel after check-in takes one minute tops! Not a big deal at all! The neighborhood is in the Lower Garden District and is very convenient. You are just one block from the trolley. The St. Charles trolley is the oldest line in NOLA. The trollies are historical landmarks as well. Around the corner, on St. Charles, there are great restaurants! Up several blocks, and one block over is Magazine Street. This is a great location that's lined with boutiques and more great eateries. And, The WWII Museum in just a 10 minute walk from The Queen Anne. I highly recommend this B&B. The neighborhood isn't as lovely as The Queen Anne but it's not that bad either. The convenience of the location makes up for it in leaps & bounds. Also when I stayed it was quiet. One more thing....the trolley take passengers right to The French Quarter. I come back to The Queen Anne.
10/19/14 DougandDebB Alvin, Texas
Having owned an Old Home (1892) it was a pleasure staying at the Queen Ann. The room, 152, was very nice with the tall ceilings and Antebellum charm, well appointed and very clean. The mattress sags in the center making it uncomfortable, but since we were only staying one night we made the best of it.. When asked if I wanted a parking permit to park in the fenced parking area I did not think to ask if there was a charge and was shocked when I received a $50 parking fee, which is high even for NOLA.
"Nice Room, Disappointing Location"
09/30/14 rarin2go Noank, Connecticut
I booked the Queen Anne because my husband and I wanted to move outside the French Quarter for a couple of days after being in the Quarter for a 2-day meeting. Having done a lot of research on the neighborhoods, I chose the Garden District for its old-world beauty and upscale charm; and from the hotel's photos, we expected the QA to be part of that. We were very disappointed to find it in a fairly run-down neighborhood, next to a Laundromat and fenced parking lots. When I mentioned my surprise to the clerk at check-in, she said that the hotel is really "just on the edge of the lower garden district; you have to go up a few blocks to see the nice part." As others have mentioned, having to check in at another hotel, cart your luggage to the QA, then use your key to get into the gate, into the door, and into your room is a pain. The room itself (second floor, side location) was very spacious with high ceilings, two full-length windows plus one in the bathroom, walk-in closet, and amenities such as coffee maker, fridge, microwave, real glasses and dishes. (The only thing I missed was a full-length mirror.) The room was very clean, but needs some TLC--the upholstery on the easy chair and desk chair, for example, were soiled and should be replaced. While other guests complained about street noise in the front-facing rooms, we did not notice it in our room. Breakfast is included in the room rate but is nothing to get excited about. It's like a Holiday Inn Express--two cereals, instant oatmeal or grits, packaged fruit, yogurt, English muffins and Danish--and it ends at 9:00. It's served in a sister hotel across the street, which quickly becomes overcrowded, since there are only 6-8 tables for guests at three hotels. There are some seats and one table outside, but on a rainy day as we had, those are little help. While the location is not at all attractive, it is convenient--one block from St. Charles Avenue, where you can catch the trolley going either uptown or down to the French Quarter. At $1.25 a ride or $3 for an all-day pass, the trollies are the best way to get around the city. There are also several restaurants and bars on St. Charles within easy walking distance of the hotel. At a bargain rate, the hotel is not a bad choice, especially for younger folks traveling light and into the bar scene on this stretch of St. Charles. For my husband and me there are better choices.
"Very quaint little place"
08/05/14 Amanda C Daphne, Alabama
Booked our stay thru a 3rd party travel site. Check in was quick but you do have to walk around the corner a bit for the actual hotel (no biggie). Parking is free and in a fenced parking lot so seemed safe. When we got to the room our a/c was out and it was easily 90 degrees. I called the front desk and within 10 minutes we had keys to another room. Total luck, our new room had a balcony, fireplace, and was very large (and cool). We were a block and a half from the St. Charles trolley and were impressed with all the restaurant choices in easy walking distance. We wanted to stay nearer to the French Quarter but most places were booked up due to events, the Queen Anne was a very nice surprise and we'd stay again. The continental breakfast was a little underwhelming but the attendant was very nice and actually made our waffles for us. (Hotel waffles are the best anyway, so I was happy)
"Great B&B-home away from home"
07/28/14 Dennie421 Atlanta, Georgia
I will admit I was a bit apprehensive from reading many of the reviews and hearing about staff. I had a DELIGHTFUL experience and will be returning in November. I have stayed at the Windsor Court (twice), the W Hotel, Crowne Plaza Astor(twice), and an airport hotel (SHeraton?) I had the most pleasant stay at this property. As a previous reviewer ranked his stay-the good Location, Location, Location-I took a shuttle from airport (round trip), I took a taxi to Superdome (for events) walked back afterwards-down St. Charles. I am 49, a female and traveled solo. I liked that if I wanted to go to the action, I could be there within 20 min walk, 5 min ride. I am not a PARTY girl-so this location was great for me. Many quality restaurants within walking distance and the front desk offered many recommendations. St. Charles Streetcar is two blocks away. 5-10 minute walk from museums, 20 minute walk to convention center, 30 minute walk to Bourbon street. Perhaps if you are partying late night, it may be wise to take a taxi for your return. I found the property to be quiet. It is indeed old and has charm. The bed was comfortable and the room was large with high ceilings. It is NOT a traditional hotel room. If this is what you are seeking then perhaps, this is not the place for you. It is larger than standard hotel rooms. I loved that it was quiet. No inside or outside noise. This property is an adult only property. Perfect for couples or solo travelers. I felt safe with key entrance to gate, the front door and the door to your room. Microwaves and refrigerators in room. Convenient if you don't like to pay exorbitant prices in hotels for basics. You can store them in your room. ALthough I didn't find a grocery, I located a package store and walgreen's nearby for in-room snacks and beverages. I felt as if I were a local-not a visitor. Everyone I encountered was extremely nice and welcoming. I felt at home. THE BAD- "Check-in" not really anything bad. it is the nature of this property-as I was aware of it when I booked my stay. The main hotel, where you check in is a half block from the actual property. Perhaps, had I asked I could have had an escort, but nevertheless I walked my bags to the property. Once there, everything was okay. If you are alone or have a large amount of luggage, I would ask for assistance. If you are elderly, you may consider the main building. THE UGLY- NOTHING! Upon Check-out, I met Dori and she is wonderful. I love her no-nonsense personality. She is accommodating, as I am also in the hospitality/service industry, people tend to take advantage of your kindness. She is running a business and although you are paying your money-you should treat people the way you wish to be treated hopefully that is with respect. I am offended at some of the reviews that I have read. I travel often and practically live in hotels as I work for a major airline. When I travel for pleasure, I usually stay in 4/5 star hotels/resorts. I will pay for comfort. I stumbled into Queen Ann as it was the only property available during a Music Festival weekend in July. I am thankful for the discovery as it is my "GO-TO" property when in NOLA. I have been told that the garden district is often overlooked as most people want to experience BOURBON ST. and the FRENCH Quarter. Please consider this property, you won't regret it. I will be returning with my kids for the main hotel, but my next visit is at the Queen Anne. THe Queen Anne changed my view of NOLA. I believe I am beginning to like the city.
"Loved it, but... "
07/21/14 Lesia N
The great first. I was on the second floor, in the king size bed. It was spacious, warm, and lovely. The bed was its own massage for me. The view was pretty, looking out to the neighborhood. The bathroom was large, immaculate, and comfy. The room had a large closet. I could stand in it, spread out my arms to touch the length, and hang up my clothes, luggage, and shopping for my trip. There is ample storage space, a microwave, a fridge, and a safe. I adored my room! The room felt like I was living, not visiting. The Queen Anne was a block away from St. Charles, which has a trolley. I could get many things--dry cleaning done, clothes washed, have a drink, dine on a budget or splurge, (EMERIL'S DELMONICO IS LESS THAN A TEN-MINUTE WALK AWAY [ABOUT FIVE OR SIX BLOCKS], FINE DINING LIKE I'VE NEVER SEEN! THE MILK RUM PUNCH WAS YUMMY! YOU MUST ORDER THE GUMBO! THE WAY IT WAS SERVED WAS PRECIOUS!) and go to a drug store for extra stuff you need or forgot--within walking distance. I had a car and the QA is close to Hwy 10 and a straight shot to Baton Rouge. The good next. The free parking that was close almost always had a spot available. I once had to park on the street. I wasn't sure if I could park on Prytania, but it looked like I could. I just didn't want to intrude on the people who live around there, so I parked on Euchere. Most of the front desk staff were very helpful. I feel like I have new friends in New Orleans. One of the employees (Alphonso?) was amazing. He helped me with my bags, gave me some help with an odd request, and always had a smile. I want to make that point because some people don't recognize these people who are supposed to be behind the scenes. You've got to wonder why I can't give five stars. Here's why. Though there is free Wi-Fi, the Queen Anne's access is separate from the main hotel, the Prytania Park. I could not get on it. There was not a place in the room that gave the password, which could be placed in the information binder. I might have missed it, but I didn't see it. I went to the front desk--which is a block away, half down Prytania and half down the other block--to ask about it. The guy there was a little short on answering me. I didn't hear his one-word response correctly the first time he answered me. I told him that the statement wasn't helpful and to be more specific. He repeated his reply, I understood it, but got the real sense that he took me for being a dumb tourist. Upon request, he gave me the password for the Prytania Park access, presuming I was there. I walked back, tried it out, and it didn't work. Of course, I thought it was I who had the problem and did try to resolve it with him to no avail. I received a different password from another front desk person and it did not work. This person did that they would have to check with tech support to reboot the wi-fi. If I were on business, I would have been a little frustrated. The problem was that the QA has two or three wi-fi connections and the passwords might be different for them, which are different than for the PP. The PP access showed up on my device, but I could not use it. I used my own phone instead, which I did not want to do. The night staff is sparse. I had a problem with a key. I would have had to walk the block to the front desk. I was tired and just did not want to walk. I called the front desk. The person there had to come to me, leaving the front desk. A sparse staff is acceptable for a hotel with lower expectations, but not for two properties where guests and staff have to walk a block to be accommodating. I did not like the parking situation. The main parking lot is for all three properties. I didn't want to walk a block to get to my car. Yes, I didn't have to walk, but the other lot gives the impression that it was only for the Prytania Oaks guests. I want to say that there are about 15 spaces for cars. I did park there instead. That's no big deal, true, but you have to know that. Yes, I did find parking spots. The Queen Anne is not (NOT) close to the main attractions: Bourbon Street, the French Quarter, the venues. They may be walking distance for some, but not for me. The good news is that the QA is away from the hubbub. When I wanted to sleep, I slept! I was very comfortable and I felt safe. The not-so-good news is that I wasn't familiar with the area. Yes, I could have researched, got a map, plotted my strategy, blah blah blah. It's not the fault of the QA; it's my own fault. However, I was told the QA was "a mile away" from the attractions. It's a long mile. I drove. Parking was $30 a day for lots that are close, cheaper that were not as close. I would consider a cab for travel in the future. Again, that's not their fault and it's not completely a bad thing. The free breakfast? I have no idea why it ends at nine. I was not compelled to go because I was told it was not a hot-food breakfast, so why would I try to wake up for it? I went to a store and bought breakfast food instead. Would I stay there again? Yes. Do the amenities the QA provides match the cost? I'll let you be the judge. Was it beautiful? Absolutely. This is the place to go for a getaway vacation. It's also the place for many of the attractions, but it's not as convenient as are the hotels that are on the other side of the expressway. That said, living at the QA was divine and I enjoyed it.
