I'll try to make this review to the point, but I could not have asked for a better stay. I arrived during a very busy weekend (4th of July) with almost all of the other hotels in the city sold out, and so many things made my stay extra enjoyable.
Perfect. About 10 minutes walking to Convention Center, Superdome and Bourbon Street. The parking was cheaper than any other hotel we looked for - they didn't even raise their rates because of the traffic they expected during the weekend. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone wanting to experience the center of New Orleans.
Exceptional. Very easy check-in process. They had exactly the correct room we reserved. The rooms were serviced in a timely fashion, and Makeysha (sp?) did an amazing job with our mess sprawled out all over the room. Beautiful personality and service with a smile! When we had an issue with a sink clog, the head of housekeeping (Kim) was right on it. We appreciated her for all of her efforts and believe she is keeping the staff in top form. No issues with the service at all. Checkout was as easy as check-in. Valet alerted us early to request the vehicle 15-20 minutes in advance. Still, retrieving the car was very fast.
The facilities definitely show some wear. If you are looking for a 5* luxury room, you will need to find a newer property. However, everything was clean and comfortable. We did not stay in the room much, so this was not a problem at all for us. The lobby was nice and inviting and had the ability to print boarding passes free of charge.
Restaurant: We didn't go in, but it seemed to be pretty busy.
In all, this was a wonderful stay. I would definitely book again.
