Nice hotel in New Orleans

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Location, price, house style.
Cons: Map to get the room quickly!
Location: New Orleans!
Nice hotel, a little old-fashioned but ok, located in St historical Charles Street, close to New Orleans downtown. Interesting patio to take breakfast outside. Good bargain on price.

Good hotel with great staff.

Posted Jul 6, 2015
The hotel is older and the rooms are small, so it was not quite as comfortable as more modern hotels. But it was very charming. The staff was outstanding. I would stay there again.

Nothing like the pictures. Old, but not charming.

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants. Knowledgeable about where NOT to go walking at night. Good drinking water.
Cons: In drastic need of repairs. The air conditioner kept the room cool, however, it started up every 148 seconds and sounded like a 747 taking off.
Location: Some good restaurants up St. Charles. Scary walking at night. People passed out on the sidewalk, trash everywhere and stagnant, standing water.
Fought gravity all night to keep from falling into the abyssal middle of the bed. I got real good at killing the baby cockroaches, then found the big mama... Breakfast was a variety of carbs, with or without chocolate. Finally got hard boiled eggs and apples the last day. Couldn't really hear the street noise much over the rattle and roar of the air conditioner. The TV and WiFi worked. I guess NOLA just wasn't for me. Good thing my husband and I have a sense of humor.

Dirty and dirtier

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: It was quiet.
Cons: It needs to be gutted and completely remodeled.
Location: Sketchy neighborhood,lots of bums and beggars.
This is an old,run down,two story hotel with about 40 rooms. My room Had a view of an ugly brick wall.The carpet looks like it has never been cleaned, the drapes were held up with safety pins, the bathroom was filthy and had pubic hair in the shower when I arrived. Everything is outdated, old and dirty. The wallpaper was peeling off of the wall,paint peeking from the ceiling. Rinky-dink air conditioner that was noisy. I dont know how this place stays in business. The neighborhood is not so great and you have bums and sketchy dudes walking by.. Don't even think about walking to downtown from here, it is not safe... You will need to cab or Uber it anywhere.

Nice hotel with easy access to downtown

Posted Jun 28, 2015
This gem is clean, quiet and charming. The trolley is a block away providing easy access to downtown. Perfect for avoiding the high rates for conference hotels.

Historic hotel. Good location. FREE parking.

Posted Jun 25, 2015
Pros: Good location. Doesn't charge for incidentals. FREE parking.
Cons: I don't see anything that needs to change.
Location: Streetcar stops right outside, straight to canal st. Good places to eat within walking distance include, Houston's restaurant and Emril's Delmonico.
I have stayed at the street car in several times and I feel it is one of the best places to stay in New Orleans. > The price is very decent for a New Orleans hotel > Parking on the streets off of St. Charles is FREE and safe > The staff are very friendly and don't charge your credit card when you arrive for incidentals > The location offers transportation right outside ($1.25 per ride or $3.00 all day per person) going to canal street > It is within walking distance of Emril Lagasse's Delmonico restaurant > Cleaning service doesn't come bother you before you have to check out! The rooms I've stayed in have been clean and comfortable. Bathrooms have all the basics as well as having shower caps which I love. I would recommend this hotel!

Very Dirty, Unkept Hotel, In Drab Part of Town

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Pros: Staff was welcoming and seemed friendly enough.
Cons: CLEAN THE ROOMS!
Location: Not much. You can catch the streetcar and ride to a better part of town.
My sheets had not been changed since previous guest, littered with crumbs and body hair, Yuck! My bathroom floor had not been cleaned, debris from ... well, accumulated over lots of time. Hair pins, pubic hair, dirt, soap scum and a bit moldy. Drab part of town, tucked between pizza, Wendy's, office supply store, etc. Noisy street and had to park several blocks away. Staff was friendly enough. But hey, they are lazy or poorly trained or don't give a hoot. Terrible health, welfare and cleaniless conditions. Really, the worst place I've ever stayed (and I've visited many a 3rd world county!)

Historic just means run-down...

Posted Jun 16, 2015
Pros: The location is in proximity to some cool stuff in Lower Garden. That's about it.
Cons: Pretty much everything.
Location: The location is on famous St. Charles. Checkout the cool stuff down near Magazine Street.
I am a pretty flexible traveler but this place really disappointed me. Everything was broken: The ceiling light, the outlets, the bathroom fan, the bed, the toilet, the closet door, and the ironing board. The room itself was loud between motel like traffic, the constantly running water throughout the facilities, and the noise from other rooms. The quality of everything was just completely sub-par. The sheets and towels were threadbare and gross (also not changed or replaced by housekeeping), the soap and toiletries were either non-existent or bad, there was no desk or table for a business traveler, the iron and board were useless, there was no space in the bathroom to get anything ready, and plugs kept fallingout of the the outlets. The staff is friendly, but even they had their faults like handing me the extra key to a room that had just been assigned to a young couple on a romantic retreat. I'm lucky I didn't barge in on more than them unpacking a suitcase. Oh, and the free breakfast was terrible. Bad coffee, a plate of hardboiled eggs, and a couple of soggy baked goods. It's fine if a historic place maintains its charm, but this was just dingy and not at all worth the price. I found a different place to stay for the remainder of my trip and will not be returning.
