This was an interesting stay. I think it's a bit overpriced on the weekend rate. Don't expect any thick fluffy towels or luxury bed linens. If you cannot climb stairs then you must get the desk clerk to unlock the ancient and very slow elevator each time you need it. There is no assigned parking, you have to take your chance to find on street parking.
Now for the good parts. The staff seems to be very limited but also very willing to please. We were there to attend a wedding, the reception being at The Columns. This is a wonderful venue for a reception! Food stations were set up in various rooms and the food was excellent. We also ate breakfast in the dining room both mornings and enjoyed that. The best part though was sitting out on the wonderful porch and enjoying the view. The Garden District is convenient and beautiful. Our room on the third floor was okay.
