Stayed here for 3 nights on vacation and really enjoyed this hotel. The location is great as it is right on the edge of the French Quarter but only about 3 blocks away from Bourbon. It's far enough away from the party streets that it's quiet and you can relax, get some sleep and get away from the craziness of the French Quarter!
As others have said, the rooms are a bit dark but they are gorgeously decorated and very clean. They are also a bit small but who really comes to New Orleans to sit in their room?
We really enjoyed the courtyard and pool area. The weather was nice and we got some time to relax by the pool.
The breakfast is free every morning and very good. They had a great selection of muffins, waffles, bagels, eggs, cereal, bacon ETC.
Staff was friendly and helpful. On our final day there our flight left very early at 6:30AM so we had to catch a cab around 5AM (when the French Quarter partygoers were just going home). The desk clerk stood out in the street for us and flagged down a cab. We really appreciated that!
A few sidenotes: the elevators are VERY small...only can fit 2 people in them (just an FYI) and also, we felt very safe at this hotel but when you are coming back to the hotel at night stick to the busier streets like Bourbon or Royal and take them all the way down. We made the mistake of taking a deserted street back to the hotel on the first night and it was a bit scary! Just pay attention to your surroundings and you will be fine! :)
