French Quarter – Royal Street
Just around the corner is Bourbon Street, but get your cocktail to go, because you might just want to kick back on the gallery (balcony/deck) of this great place to take in the scene, or just enjoy the details in cast-iron of the gallery. The Original house was built in 1817 by Henry Latrobe, then rebuilt in 1859 and a third story was added, stairs and mantels from the original house remain. Staying here is like living history, Tennessee Williams once stayed here (link). Great views of downtown, Cold Air Conditioning, wood floors, full kitchen, ceiling fans in bedrooms, washer and dryer in unit.
