“The Perfect Place to stay in the French Quarter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

My fiancé and I recently stayed here for a long weekend in January. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. It is really is in the perfect location in the French Quarter. Everything was within walking distance and was super convenient to where we were. We arrived early at the hotel and the staff allowed us to check in early. The staff was perhaps the friendliest people I have ever met. They really made you feel like you were family. Next time I come back to New Orleans I would certainly stay here in a heart beat!

I found the hotel thru travel search and took a chance. It was a great choice. Located between the Conv. Center and French Qtr.
I walked to most all chosen destinations easily. From the bellman to the cleaning staff, all always greeted nicely with a smile. Great value for the dollar
I will book again in October

Best service, cleanliness, hospitality We have experienced at any star hotel in forever. Need to add heat to shower water they were there in a jiffy, left a super sweet chocolate apology and totally fixed the problem. ALL the staff were so friendly and pleasant. Great location, great price, perfect accomodations

Room Tip: Nice complimentary breakfast with fresh fruit and a variety of offerings.

We chose this hotel for a long weekend in New Orleans and we were happy with our choice.

Pros:
Location- We were able to walk or take the streetcar everywhere we wanted to go, including the French Quarter, warehouse District, Frenchmen Street and the Garden District. It was a lot of walking, but we enjoyed seeing everything along the way.
Service- Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful throughout our entire stay.
Amenities- Extra amenities like the free breakfast and coffee, workout room, free cookies, in room fridge and microwave etc. were a nice touch.

Cons:
Slowest elevator ever!
Small oddly sized room. Our king bed barely fit, so we were a bit cramped.

Positive: Friendly, thoughtful, professional and helpful staff. Everyone from the front desk to the concierge to the bellman was great at their jobs. I can't emphasize how much a smile, efficiency, or extra little help can contribute to having a nice vacation. The hotel itself has a nice design and architecture with stylish wood and brick that give the place a welcoming charm. Great location close to but not in the French Quarter.
Neutral: Rooms facing the main avenue will suffer from street noise especially on weekends.
Negative: None.
Elite Benefits: Received an awesome New Orleans-themed amenity package as a Gold member. Took the beads home!

I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Perhaps avoid rooms with windows facing the street if you are a light sleeper.

I rarely, if ever, write a review, but this hotel deserves a GREAT one! Outstanding location (2 blocks from French quarter), interesting architecture, staff was welcoming, helpful, polite, friendly. Concierge service was super, particularly Valerie; good breakfast, 24 hour coffee and tea, etc. etc. etc. Fitness room could have bigger, but was able to work out when I wanted. This place is simply a gem!! And all with a GREAT price!!

I enjoyed my stay here and the location can't be beat. It is an excellent value for the location. Easy access to the French Quarter, CBD, and street car lines. All of my face to face interaction with the staff was great. They were helpful and pleasant to talk to.
Now for the improvements. This hotel desperately needs its carpet replaced. The carpet in my room was disgusting stains everywhere. To counter that the bedding and the bathroom were very clean. I think this carpet has just survived one too many Mardi Gras. Also, if you use the valet make sure you allow for plenty of time. It takes a long time to get your car. I also had issues getting a hold of the front desk. I am not sure if something was wrong with the phone line in my room or they just didn't pick up. I just walked down stairs when I needed to ask a question.
