PROS: First I want to say this is a very nice hotel. Clean, nice, room, very comfortable bed, nice pillows and competitive with pricing. Staff was friendly. Very convenient location in the French Quarter one block from Burbon Street. Pool was clean, and May Bailey's had delicious drinks. Went from June 27-29th.
What brought me to this hotel was the Secure parking with valet service. We were on a Custom motorcycle and did not want it parked 3-4 blocks away.
CON: (only 1) After arriving from a 10.5 hour ride on the motorcycle to the hotel I took a shower after checking into my room (221). There was NO water pressure, it took me about 20 minutes longer to rinse my hair (very thick), no exaggeration. I went to the front desk and told the staff and she called maintance to repair. Day 2 I got up to take a shower and the same thing, nobody had come. Again, I went to ask for it to be repaired. I saw maintenance in the hall and took him to my room and showed him, he said it was the shower head and he would get it fixed. Day 3 Same thing. NO BODY had fixed my shower. I figure this was an hour lost on my short vacation that I spent trying to get soap out of my hair :( Midday, on my third and final day, I caught the Maintenance man again and he came and changed the shower head. Still no water pressure. He said "Oh yeah, there is definitely something wrong with this water pressure, I will have to tell my boss". When I checked out I told the desk person and she compensated my by giving me $50 off my bill. I guess it was better than nothing but I would have expected more.
