The hotel is located right bang in the middle of the french quarter, it is a beautifully renovated building decorated with style and taste. It is on a corner of Bourbon street with the main entrance on a side road. The minute I entered in the room, I heard some jazz playing, I think left on purpose to get you into the mood. If not it was a great and unique experience to walk into a room and get greeted by music. The room was beautifull, very comfortable and clean and again tastefully done. White french shuttters on the windows, teas and coffee provided with all amenities. The hotel has a small gym but fit for purpose if you want to run on a treadmill and do some weights. The best asset of this hotel however is the people working there. They are the most friendly members of staff I have ever encountered, always with a smile and happy to help even when a huge conference is in town and they are at their most busy. It is a bit of a treck (20 minute walk or $10 taxi ride) to the convention center but it is so much better to stay in such a hotel rather than the box standard hotels you can find around there.
I would definitely go back and recomend it to friends.
