Nice on the parade route

Posted Feb 6, 2016
Very professional, personable staff made our brief stay pleasurable. We were in the towers part of the hotel, 6th floor, which gave a very nice view of the downtown skyline. However, there was what appeared to be a former terrace area below our window that could have used some post-construction clean up. The bed was very comfortable, and it was nice to see the local fare, pralines, left on our pillow as opposed to the traditional mints. I would definitely recommend the property and stay there again.

Mardi Gras Stay

Posted Feb 6, 2016
Exactly on St.charles Ave with all the parades going though. The rooms are good with a cordial staff. It tools long time to check in. But good staff generally. And nice location ...

Clean, convenient and Staff - EXCELLENT

Posted Feb 5, 2016
Clean and comfortable. Very close to French quarter - we walked everywhere we wanted to go. The staff is excellent. From the manager to the front desk to security - always available, always friendly helpful and professional. Would definitely stay there again

Lovely! Huge room!

Posted Jan 31, 2016
Pros: The location and the furnishings!
Location: It's a great central location, a short walk to the French Quarter and the convention center!
The hotel could use a few more touches. The waste baskets, there should be a few more, at least more than one in the bathroom and more than one in the common area. There should be at least one more, under the desk. I only say this because with the size of the room, it was a long walk to find one! They could also use some additional lighting, the room stayed pretty dark most of the time. However, these are the only things I would ever change for the room. Very spacious and nice.

Quiet comfortable hotel.

Posted Jan 27, 2016
Pros: Comfortable and clean (though a musty smell in the hallways). Location.
Cons: Vending machines and breakfast!
Location: Fabulous location, right on St Charles Steetcar line, easy walk to French Quarter, the Mississippi etc.
Hotel is quiet, comfortable and clean. Great location, especially if you want to be away from the craziness of Bourbon St and the French Qtr but still have easy access to everything. Only issue was that the hotel has very basic facilities (e.g. no vending machines for a late night snack, no breakfast, had to go around the corner to the coffee shop every morning). Staff was generally helpful and friendly without going out of their way...

Wonderful Location...Nice Rooms

Posted Jan 24, 2016
The location of this hotel is wonderful. The staff was pleasant, especially the valet parking attendants...they were most helpful. The rooms were comfortable, though small. The unfortunate thing about our room was the noise from the street, especially the trolleys. If you stay at this hotel, please be sure to request a room away from the street.

Nice hotel, conveniently located

Posted Jan 16, 2016
Pleasantly surprised. Older hotel, but comfortable, and close to several nice restaurants. 10-15 minute walk to the convention center. Staff was generally helpful and competent.

Very nice hotel, great location

Posted Jan 2, 2016
Ideally situated for walking into the French Quarter and Garden District. Staff were great, hotel clean and comfortable, if a little old fashioned.

Nice hotel close to variety of activities.

Posted Dec 30, 2015
Pros: Price and general location.
Cons: Repair the sink stopper.
The hotel was nice for the price. My room was clean. The stopper in the bathroom sink was broken making the water splash when the sink faucet was turned on - bothersome. The Central Business District, French Quarter, Warehouse District are all within walking distance for those that do not mind walking a bit. TV service is limited as HBO, and a number of the movie channels (AMC, TCM, etc) are not available but who goes to New Orleans to watch TV? The St. Charles Street trolley runs all night long just in front of the hotel. It is noisy. Rooms across the front of the hotel are not for the light sleeper. I find the standard hotel parking rate ($38 including tax) in New Orleans to be ridiculous.
