Hotel is showing age - not gracefully.

Very noisy even on top floor.

Only one person on duty to handle all tasks.

Reviewed 1 May 2014

This hotel is the definition of average. But it could have been great. The Wyndham executives have dropped the ball on this hotel. Set in an old bank building, the Wyndham team had every opportunity to exploit the beautiful interior and have failed miserably. They could have had one of the hottest bar/restaurant scenes, using the old bank and the vault (private dining room), but they have made no attempt to do anything special here. The rooms are very tired as well. Someone looking to have a great boutique hotel should buy this place and turn it around.
That being said, the staff at the front desk was very nice, friendly and helpful, as was the housekeeping staff. And the hotel is in a very good area. Less than a 10 minute walk to the heart of the French Quarter; 2 blocks from Mother's restaurant; and 10 minutes to the Mississippi River.
