The hotel has a great location near Canal and Bourbon streets. There are a ton of great restuarants nearby. All downtown destinations are no more than a 15 minute walk. Our room was modern, clean and had a great view overlooking portions of the Mississippi River, Canal Street, and downtown highrises. The hotel is in an old office building, but manages to maintains a boutique feel. No complaints regarding noise or room size. There is a great coffee shop in the lobby.
