I stayed here for a wedding party and really enjoyed it. The hotel is old and the floors creak when you walk over them. The main stair case is slanted from the years and the only elevator is in the back and controlled by manually closing the door. If you sit next to the air vents, you can hear the next room's conversations as if you were in the room.
Staying at this hotel was an experience that I will always remember when I think of New Orleans. The city was working on the street-car rail, so there was no noise from the trains at night - good or bad, depending how you look at it, sometimes it's nostalgic for me to listen to them. Regardless, the very large oak trees that line St. Charles Ave. look really beautiful. Plus the Garden District allows somewhat of a buffer from the city feel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to absorb an experience and feel of a different time.
P.S. - The movie Pretty Baby was filmed almost entirely at this location, hence there is a 'Pretty Baby Suite'
