I couldn't pronounce the street this hotel sits on, but I could tell you it's the best place to stay when in New Orleans. It's close to the action (just a few blocks away; maybe 5 - 10 minute walk to French Quarter, Riverwalk, etc.) but far enough away from all the chaos to enjoy some necessary quiet. Truly great location. Perfect for families and couples, alike. This was my first time in New Orleans and I loved it here. There is likely no other hotel I would stay on my next trip out here.
The impressive sliding glass doors at the entrance to the hotel open to reveal a beautiful (albeit, freezing -- AC was super pumped) sleek, lobby. The rooms are spacious and clean. Aveda products. Nice towels. There is art EVERYWHERE: in the lobby, rooms, by the elevator! -- which, for an artsy girl like me, was just everything. The rooftop pool was clean and just perfect for this long weekend in New Orleans. Also on the top floor: gym, sauna.
The beds are super comfortable and at night, all was quiet (which was THE perfect combo for those hungover, "I need to sleep it off" mornings) The view from my room was nice enough.
Staff: front desk very friendly. They gave comp water and AMP brand drinks. Lawrence (bellhop) was so friendly and gave us some initial tips on where to go.
If you want to stay close to the hotel, you can find the well-known Mother restaurant about a block up, Lucy restaurant on the corner and a restaurant in the lobby of the hotel. Really, you could trip and fall right into a great restaurant, bar, or art gallery from this hotel. =)
