I have been eying this hotel since I found it on Pinterest. The pops of purple are what drew my eye. It has a very trendy feel in an otherwise historic building. Our room was well maintained and offered free wi-fi. They also provided enough towels for 2 people. The AC system did make some noises as it cycled throughout the night, but I assume it's an older system.
The hotel from the outside fits in with the neighboring French Quarter and is a short walk to almost everywhere. Valet service is mandatory ($34 per overnight), but I don't think you need to have use of your car during the trip since the city is more accessible by walking of using the street cars ($3 per day).
As mentioned by other reviewers, they also comp you a drink from the hotel bar. The bartender was very pleasant and offered suggestions to folks at the bar. Close to the bar is the pool area which has a really trendy feel. There are more purple lights to accent the purple furniture. The pool area is secluded from the outside and offers guests privacy from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. The rates are reasonable especially when considering the proximity to life in the French Quarter including some excellent restaurants.More
