I almost hate to review this hotel and let out the Best Kept Secret in New Orleans. Normally I wouldn't think of staying outside the French Quarter but this time we needed to have a car so I was looking for the free parking. This hotel has so much more than free parking! It is a beautifully maintained pre-Civil war property. Having done some renovations myself I noticed what beautiful work they did in the bathroom with the tile and the granite countertops not to mention the Toto toilets. How many places have you lodged that had TWO fireplaces? One in the bedroom and one in the bathroom! The linens were top notch as well as the mattress. Beautiful hardwood floors, flat screen tv, coffee maker, mini fridge, microwave and writing desk....these all came with and I know some of the French Quarter Hotels that charge much more do not have such nice amenities.
We actually enjoyed going to the breakfast area each morning. The woman who worked there did a fantastic job and you could see she really liked helping people. Most hotels have a self serve, Styrofoam atmosphere but not here! Ceramic dishes for the cereal and pastries, milk and juice in glass pitchers, the staff offering to make waffles, I have to say it was a nice way to start the day.
You can tell that the people who run the hotel care about quality, cleanliness and customer service. And it doesn't hurt to have a top-notch location. I was fully aware that check in is at the Prytania Park Hotel around the corner. I see that's a mistake a lot of people make so if you're going to book just keep that in mind. And tell the breakfast lady I said Hi!
