The hotel has a great location on Canal Street, just a few blocks from Bourbon Street. Exterior is classy and sophisticated, a feeling that carries in to the lobby, which also manages to be fun, funky and hip, if a little dark. Friendly front desk clerks at check in, along with a very helpful and gracious manager on duty started our stay off nicely. Parking is either valet (not too pricey comparatively at $38; it was $50 down the block & this was during Mardi Gras), or a garage across the street. We opted for valet. This has to be one of the most unique hotels I've ever stayed in; bordering on trippy once you enter the elevators with old timey movies playing, and then exit into a very dark black light lit hallway. I must say that if I had been traveling alone the dark hallways would have been a turn off, but it certainly added atmosphere.
Our room on the 4th floor overlooked Canal Street - great view! The room was large, clean and hip with an eclectic decor that combined funky modernism with industrial charm. The bathroom (also spotless) had great attention to detail in all of its fixtures and amenities. I will say that I didn't like the scent of the hotel, which seems to match the sent of the in room toiletries; a little overpowering, but not enough for a headache - just distinctly noticeable.
I found the staff to be friendly, outgoing and helpful - especially Randy Reid at the front desk and his counterpart from CT, along with a wonderful valet staff on the morning of our departure.
I would absolutely love to stay here again and highly recommend this hotel, especially to those willing to step outside of the cookie cutter hotel room proverbial box.
