Excellent view, ideal location
Posted Feb 11, 2017
I have stayed here several times and this hotel is in a great location, close enough to feel safe and walk, but two blocks back from Bourbon. This time I had a balcony room with the French quarter view and it ended up being with a great downtown view of buildings rising over the quarter, really cool at night. The room however was close to the corner of the hotel and had an akward layout. The only complaint is the room temperature. It was only February and the room never cooled properly. Air unit was running non stop but never felt much of a circulation. Also the sun coming through the balcony didn't help much unless you keep the black out curtains closed, but during the day that defeats the purpose of a balcony room. Overall, a great hotel with a great location. I would suggest a balcony room with a courtyard view though for overall enjoyment. Street noise and the bar on the corner could really be heard on the city view rooms.
