As a gift to my husband, I wanted to surprise him with a nice room in New Orleans. I called before we drove to confirm our room which was the Terrace King. Our room was confirmed and I was told that we had been upgraded to a penthouse. Okay, that is cool. So we drive in front of the hotel, there is no valet, no bellboy, no help whatsoever. Let's keep in mind that the hotel is on a busy corner with cars whipping by while you are struggling with your luggage. Okay, we checkin and get our key, we are on the penthouse level. And we open our door to see a standard room...which I guess they call a penthouse because it is on the top floor. The room is small and the terrace was a joke. Paint was peeling off the baseboards. You had a lovely view of a parking garage. The bed was okay, the decor was nice, but I seriously felt like I was robbed. One upside to the hotel was the amazing bar which served nice drinks. I was completely underwhelmed especially after paying over $250 a night. La Quinta Inn was next door and if it wasn't for the cancellation fee. I would have went next door.
