. Visited August 2014 for convention. Exceptionally friendly staff. Streetcars (trolleys), and double deck tour bus, all stop nearby. There is a short walk (four to five blocks) to the river walk, and French quarter. The small, clean pool has a walled in feel with sticky lounge chairs and fluffy clean towels to cover them. Stay away from the gift shop unless you want to pay double the prices found in in the tourist area and triple the prices of the same stuff sold in the Walgreens and CVS drug stores.
I did not sample the $20.00 hot breakfast buffet, it looked yummy but I just wasn't that hungry for breakfast. There is a Rouse's supermarket, (similar to Fairway supermarket ) one block towards the river with good, reasonably priced deli and take out including ample organic and vegetarian selections.
Having to use two escalators or (hidden) elevator to get to the third floor and then walk past the bar and the restaurant to access any of the room elevators was taxing; the buttonless elevators were a little daunting, and the elevators do not stop on all floors. I could not ascertain which elevator bank would access my floor until the room key was waived in front of one of several the card reader outside the elevator banks. The arrangement of the meeting grooms on the first and second floors was a little confusing in that the escalators by passes one of the meeting room floors.
Be sure to ride the elevator to floor 32 for the thrill passing through the ceiling to enjoy the view.
Altogether a clean friendly place. I would stay here again.
