We had a great stay here. The hotel is in a great location. It's a few blocks from the French Quarter, but far enough to be quiet. The street is relatively well-lit, and I had no qualms about walking outside at night.
The lobby and room both had nice artwork, which is the theme of the hotel. The room itself was a little small, as was the bathroom. However, it was decorated elegantly. The bed was comfortable.
My only complaints: The hotel nickel and dimes you. Parking is $38 a day plus tips. That is ridiculous, and more than half of what I paid for the room! You can avoid this by paying to park at one of the parking lots down the street. They also charge for Wifi, which to me is also ridiculous. McDonalds and every bookstore can swing free wifi, but a top-of-the-line hotel can't?
Overall, a nice stay, the staff was nice and friendly. I would recommend it.
