Very nice, modern hotel. Beautiful public areas and rooms. Comfortable bed. Roof-top Pool. Great Value (we paid ~$100 per night). Pleasant, helpful staff (they provided many maps, cabs, and directions for us).
We stayed at the Rennaissance Arts for 2 nights in June 2008. It was out first visit to New Orleans and the hotel was much better than we expected, bright, modern, clean, and a fairly good location.
You are about 3 blocks south of St. Charles Street (and the St. Charles Street trolley car which winds through the Garden District).
You are a 15 minute walk or $7 cab ride from the French Quarter, close enough to be totally convenient, yet far enough to offer a nice respite each evening.
One block west of the hotel (literally 1 block, less 3 min walk) is Emeril's restaurant.
Two blocks east (5 min walk) is a really cute wine bar "W.I.N.O" (Wine Institue of New Orleans).
Two blocks south (5 min walk) is the Riverfront Dining and Shopping mall.
The only sub-par feature of the hotel is that the hotel restaurant simply can't compete with NOLA cuisine. We had drinks and dessert there one evening and I think it was probably the worst bread pudding in all of New Orleans. But there are so many other places to eat in NOLA, why would you want to eat in your restaurant anyway?
