This is a good place to stay, but some areas are showing wear. I was surprised by the stained hallway carpets. While the place is fairly well taken of, this is an area that needs attention and it's not that hard to keep the carpets clean.
The hotel was stressed when I arrived because of a large event in New Orleans, which I wasn't aware of. The restaurant offered a very small menu with three sandwiches, a gumbo, no salads and no large plates. That made for a disappointing first night. But the hotel rebounded on Monday in most areas, except for housekeeping. The housekeepers were overwhelmed. My room wasn't cleaned until after 5 PM. The maids had been there since the morning so I suspect that they put in a 10 plus hour day. It seems that management could have anticipated the need for more help that day. It was disappointing to return to my room in the afternoon and it wasn't made up.
While the last bit has a negative tone, this hotel is a good option since it's not on Canal Street or in the French Quarter. I like not being in the center of the chaos when I'm in New Orleans.
