We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jewel Box, as it is exactly what we needed for my husband and I for a short two night stay during Carnival season! We had stayed downtown in the warehouse district the first two nights because of the proximity to a meeting I was attending and then moved uptown for the weekend so we could be close to the Maple Leaf Bar and Jacques-Imo's Cafe, which is one of the hottest tickets in New Orleans for anyone looking for "real Nawlin's food." Both are located just steps from the Jewel Box and so there is no need for a car, only downside is that the streetcar line was under construction while we there so if you are counting on it, then you have to get on and off and switch back and forth between it and a bus or walking, so somewhat of an inconvenience. Only downsides to the condo are as follows: 1) The bathroom is older and could use some updating, 2) The Bedroom mattress is not very comfortable at all and the bedding and pillows are old and warn out, 3) The den is very small and so if you plan on bringing a 3rd person to crash, they will not have much room. Neither of these really bothered us much because we were hardly in the apt/condo at all. Upside included that we LOVED having the screened in porch for the short times that we were there, and of course it is nice have a reasonable sized kitchen. Overall we definitely enjoyed our stay and will most certainly consider staying at the Jew Box again!
