Was scheduled at the Historic Cotton Exchange Hotel on May 29. Hotel is in mid-renovation. The entire lobby is a hole in the building. The door is difficult to find. When I was set to check, the desk clerk, who was behind a table in a room off where the lobby will be, told me that the water in the hotel was off, but would be on at 5PM that day. This sounded unpromising. She assured me that my prepaid reservation would be refunded if I wished, which I did. When Southwest Airlines, where I booked the room, called to confirm, the desk clerk honored the cancellation.
Went across Carondelet Street, where the hotel is located, to a Hampton Inn. Bright and new lobby, then surprise--cheaper rate!--this is without a reservation, just walking up to the desk and asking, this with free breakfast and Internet access. So hats off to the Hampton for saving my stay from disaster, and good luck to the Cotton Exchange...
