While this hotel is off the beaten path (aka not on Bourbon Street), be prepared for rowdy parties, which can keep you up at night if your main objective is to get rest and relaxation. My husband and I were rudely awakened in the early morning to noise from the presidential suite ... Our room was right below it and we soon discovered the rooms aren't sound proofed. Luckily, the hotel staff was able to move us to a different room. Half asleep, we changed rooms during the middle of the night and pleasantly discovered that we had been upgraded to an even larger suite --- complete with a larger sitting room and beautiful bathroom with a claw foot tub (our first suite was also very well appointed; however, smaller compared to our "new" room). It also had a better view, overlooking the pool.
Hotel is very beautiful --- Hilton did a great job with the renovations. Property features a great bar --- the Sazerac --- and restaurant --- Domenica (a John Besh restaurant). It's walking distance to pretty much everything, including the Superdome (in case you're down there for a Saints game). Rooms were very well appointed and clean and featured nice amenities. The hotel also features a lovely gift shop --- the perfect spot for picking up a present for a friend or family member.
Parking at the hotel can be pretty steep. If in town with a rental car, you may want to consider parking at the garage just before the hotel. It was half the price ($20 versus $40) and they would allow you to come and go as you pleased if you paid ahead.
