Eh it was okay, a little too pricey
The trip overall was okay. It was really hard dealing with the check in because they send you “codes” for the doors. Plus it seems like all of the texts and emails they sent us were automated. The place was nice and clean, but a little underwhelming and a little too pricey for what we got IMO

Great stay in Nola
Great place! Our Lyft driver informed us that it is a little dangerous at night in the area, but the gate made us feel very safe. We had an excellent time, and would definitely stay again.

Bring you own ice and snacks.
Digital check-in was a bit confusing for an older individual but gated parking was a big plus. No ice available. Personnel very polite.
