4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The staff was great and very friendly and helpful. Breakfast lady was amazing, even when the breakfast service was limited. The room was much smaller than shown on the website. Parking is tooo expensive!

  • Disliked: Staff & service

Good location in the downtown area, not far from the French Quarter. Lots of stuff within walking distance from the hotel. Be prepared to pay for parking a car in the lot ($34 per night - costs more per day to park the car than it did to rent it). Parking isn't free and wasn't mentioned on the website. We were caught off guard. Right next door is a parking garage that charges $20 for 24 hours, although we didn't find that out until after we'd already stayed the first night.

Rooms are small but clean and bright. Walking distance to French Quarter, Garden District, Superdome, WWII museum and so much more. It’s an economy hotel, not fancy but everything I needed. Good breakfast too and great staff! Would definitely stay again.
