We booked the hotel through Kayak. We thought we were getting a large bed in a quaint if not quirky, hotel. Our usual choice. Instead we got crazy room #33. It had 8 beds in four connected rooms plus a bathroom. The lighting was dank at best and my girlfriend came back the first day to find cockroaches in her luggage. The bathroom sink faucet put forth only a trickle of water when full on. I timed how long it took to fill the plastic 6 oz. plastic cup. 24 seconds. No lie. I can only relate our experience. I'm sure other rooms were better. They couldn't be worse.
The breakfast was a complete joke. Weak coffee, nothing but carb pasteries, no fruit, no eggs, one dry cereal, some lame orange juice in a gallon jug. A French couple, (I suspect they were French),surveyed the mess, shook their heads, made a face, and left. We ate elsewhere the next day. Our tv was inoperable because there was no controller. The woman at the front desk shrugged her shoulders and said that people walk off with such things and she didn't have an extra. There was no capability for a wake up call and none of the five floors in our (suite) was the least bit level. All this for nearly $200 a night! You'd be better off sleeping on the street. Or, doing more research on the net. In the three days we were in N.O. we saw many places we could have stayed if only we had done a better job of searching. Don't stay on or near Bourbon Street. But, even a modern high rise hotel near the French Quarter is far better than the Olde Town Inn. It sucketh.
