The hotel was less than a two minute walk from the center of Bourbon street madness, yet we did not hear any noise coming from the crowd. Our room by the street had some traffic noise, but that would probably be consistent with any other hotel in the French Quarter. Tons of lovely shops, food and drink places nearby, and a five minute walk to the Charles Street Streetcar.
The rooms, albeit small, were clean and modern, but also had the lovely laid back Nawlins' charm. Bathroom was small as well, but not cramped. The hotel was definitely good value for money, and a great base for our trip.
Location: In my eyes, the location was perfect. It was an easy walk to almost everything we wanted, and in a beautiful part of the French Quarter. Close to entertainment venues, dining and drinking options, convenience stores, public transportation - basically everything a tourist needed.
Rooms: Charming decor with comfortable double beds. In room amenities were perhaps a little lacking, but thoughtful. For example, they provided plastic cups in case we wanted to take a drink from our room out into the street, but they felt a little cheap.
Bar / Service: The in-house bar was a good place for a get-the-night-started drink, especially since the hotel provided us each with a coupon for one standard drink. The bartender was friendly and mixed great drinks. Front desk and cleaning staff were courteous and congenial.
Minor cleanliness / renovation issues: During our stay, the hotel continued with their refurbishment. This was not a very major deal, just the sporadic "wet paint" sign, as well as the hallway smelling of paint for the whole day. Fortunately the smell did not seep into our room. Also, while the room was generally clean, there was a small live cockroach that scuttled across our floor, of which I promptly disposed of. This was the only bug in the room I found, but I was definitely more wary of the room's cleanliness after finding it.
Room size and lack of curtains: Fairly small, but not cramped. Enough space for luggage and hanging up some clothes, but it was quite a cozy stay. Also, there are blinds, but not curtains, which means that natural flight will seep into the room once the sun rises. Probably was not the best for someone who was trying to sleep off a hangover.
Bathroom shower: Zero water pressure from shower head, was basically like showering with a dripping faucet; became Infuriating after awhile.
