Reviewed 9 January 2014

We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit with a Living Room/Kitchen space, 1 full bathroom (shower only) and one toilet/sink only bathroom. Nicely decorated in New Orleans style, clean, well maintained and comfortable beds. Service was superb. The cooking facilities were limited to a mini-refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker and convection/microwave oven. So, no stove was available. The closest grocery store is located about 7 blocks away which was approximately a 15 minute walk. There was the "Everything Store" just across Canal Street that had limited groceries. The location is on Decatur, just steps away from Canal and the Canal Street Car line. Bourbon St is an easy walk, as is Jefferson Square and Café Du Monde. The House of Blues is a one short block walk. Our bedrooms were located facing Decatur Street and were subject to honking horns and street noises from time to time. In summary, the location made it easy to move around the city via street cars or walk through the French Quarter. We would recommend this property and we plan to stay here again in the future.

This time share hotel on Decatur is just off Canal a few blocks from Bourbon Street in one direction and Harrah's and the upscale mall and movies in the other. The staff is outstanding (Will, Charmaine, Bobby and all the people including the great maintenance man whose names I have unfortunately forgotten). It is clean, spacious, and newly and nicely decorated. Terrific new bathrooms and, at least in our unit, a quiet bedroom. My only thought was that a table and chairs would have been nice -- some units appeared to have them but we did not. Also, although the bedroom was quiet, in the living room you could hear everything said in the hall and a good deal of noise from other rooms. Also, instructions for the microwave would have helped. Guest laundry was a plus. Note: When they say partial kitchen they mean microwave and refrigerator, plates, silverware, nice glassware including stemmed wine glasses and a coffee pot and toaster but nothing to heat anything larger in and no cooktop. A week stay with our timeshare got us one full change of towels. Still, it would be hard to beat and we hope to go back again next Christmas.

Room Tip: Ask about a table and chairs and street noise -- some people complained about that.

We spent Thanksgiving week at the Resort. I cannot say how happy we were with everything. The staff was extremely nice and polite. You are two blocks from the French Quarter... One block off of Canal St. Everything is within 10 - 15 minute walking distance. The room was very spacious, well decorated. We had an overly spacious balcony overlooking Decatur St., coffee every morning was just perfect. The kitchen had a fridge, convection/microwave oven and coffee maker. The bathroom was great, large and a huge shower. I honest cannot say how perfect this place is!!!!

Excellent location - right at the edge of the French Quarter, but outside of the craziness of Bourbon Street. Staff was friendly and helpful. Unit was small, but adequate. Atmosphere both in the unit and the public places was great.

The hotel is very pretty and ideally situated, but in an extremely loud environment. Ok for 2-3 days, but not more. I was there for a week, but the internet never worked in my room, the beds were never ever made, no fresh towels although I asked twice, no coffee refilled in the rooms, the staff were absolutely careless and rude, and on top of it, I was charged one extra night and had to fight for it being taken off the bill - yet they charged it to my credit card! I have not yet had my money back and am still arguing with them. Cannot recommend the place at all!

Room Tip: Top floor room (406) does not have WIFI!

Perfect location near everything in the French Quarter. The lobby is beautiful. The staff very friendly and helpful. The room was so beautiful and comfortable. The balcony was very large with wonderful views and comfortable furniture.

My partner and I stayed here in January 2013, it was a week before the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras started so the city was a little quieter. The service was lovely, although it took a while to check in, the ladies were entertaining, accomadating and really gave us a good New Orleans welcome. They always had great recommendations for lunch and dinner. The rooms were very spacious and the bed were very comfortable. Our friend came and stayed and she slept on the fold out sofa and by all reports it was comfortable as well. The location was great, we were told to stay away from Bourban street as the night life can get very loud, we were able to walk everywhere and the noise did not afect us at all at night. I would definitely stay here again.
