It was ok. The bed were kinda uncomfortable and for the price I paid I would expect a little more. No refrigerator, need a roll a way bed they didn't have none of those. Rooms were small but bathrooms were nice size!

Good hotel especially for the price

It was my first Time visiting New Orleans and I wanted something close to bourbon street. This hotel was about 1 mile away and was very convenient to get to from Bourbon. The only thing I have to complain about is their parking. You only had valet parking. Which costed about $60 for two days.

Hi Lexi, We are glad you had a great first visit to New Orleans, and we hope you will be back for round 2 soon! Like most hotels in our area, we do only offer valet parking. Our rates are comparable to other places in the city, however. Thank you for your feedback!

Took hours to get access to our room. Even though it says check in is at 3, make sure to tack on a couple extra hours. Plan on getting to your room around 5

Pros: Hotel staff is very good
Cons: Sockets are old. AC/heating system makes a lot of noise. Walls don't have good noise insulation. 'Bistreaux at the bank' restaurant is for namesake.
Hotel is on Poydras St. It is walkable to Canal St and to the French Quarter.

Great location for what we wanted to see.

Posted Jan 1, 2015
Pros: Great staff, clean and quiet room.
Location: Superdome, Smoothie King Arena, and WWII museum are about a 10 minute walk from hotel. Trolley located a couple of blocks from hotel.
Clean and quiet hotel. Staff was very professional and helpful. Great location for our plans. We walked to the New Orleans Pelican game and also to the WWII museum. My wife and I plan to stay at this hotel again in February when we go back to New Orleans and celebrate our 23 year anniversary.

excellent location

Posted Jan 1, 2015
Pros: location, decent room
Cons: restaurant. we haven't been but it didn't seem very inviting. there was no vending machine either (i think).
Location: ideal! galleries, street car, french quarter, restaurants, music, super dome
ideal location, close to french quarter but in a much quieter spot, a few minutes walk from galleries, the streetcar spot is around the corner, the staff are very friendly (but we didn't really ask them for anything). we'd stay here again.

Beautifully old buliding

Very historic bank buildings, centrally located. 10-15min walk to the French Quarter, short walk to numerous restaurants and very close to National War Museum. The only thing I would add would be a mini fridge in the room.

Weekend in New Orleans

Posted Dec 19, 2014
Pros: easy to find with clean rooms
Cons: Dinning experience is lacking. No real reason to stay in hotel on a bad weather day or just to order a breakfast at the hotel.
Location: Everything is nearby including Bourbon street and its a 20 minute walk to the piers and Harrah's casino.
Old office building converted into a hotel. The room was small but comfortable as the hotel offers just the basics; it's a good location to everything in the New Orleans proximity- no complaints about the location. No vending machines- does not offer any type of amenities that come in the other big brand hotels. If your looking for a comfortable room without all the bells and whistles, this hotel is a good choice.

Hello, We apologize for any inconvenience our lack of vending machines afforded you. We do have a restaurant on site, Bistreaux at the Bank, and several other convenience stores in proximity. We do hope you'll stay with us again!

Hidden gem in big city!!

Posted Dec 11, 2014
Wonderful place. Was quiet and peaceful to be in its location of downtown. Also major sites a short walk away (ie) dome, quarters, river walk mall. I will plan to stay there again.
