It's a great location but the hotel is tired. Towels were as thick as Bounty. Dust on all the surfaces. e stayed 2 nights and when we got back after the 1st day the coffee maker had not been touched. I called the desk who sent up a guy with new packs of coffee but did nothting about dirtied mugs and coffee maker.
It's noisy. We could hear the people next door and conversation in pool area. I susct people who opened onto the street could hear that traffic. The 'no window' rooms are super tiny and very depressing.
The hotel building has been around awhile .. after it is the Quarter .. but no excuse for the condition of upholstery worn carpets dirty wood work.
Every one was 'fairly' pleasant and helpful but the attitude was more 'I have to do it it's my job' rather than "happy to help." Cab from airport was $33 plus tip .. if you ask them to call a cab for you a van shows up and charges $50. Cal the cab company yourself and save $17.
Breakfast is easy missed unless you like convenience store style pastries and the use cold cereals.
AND serious caution!! I was quoted the lowest discounted price at $224 plus tax. I met another couple who had paid $164 for same room. Every thing was equal.
There are better value accommodations if you wish to stay in the quarter.
