Beautiful downtown hotel with great heritage (it turned 100 years old in 2007). A little on the ornate side, but extremely comfortable. The thing that struck me was that I don't think I've ever seen a hotel where every single person who worked there was so totally friendly and welcoming. The staff attitude is just simply fantastic, and it really added an extra dimension to my stay.
Marvelous little extra amenities, like the peanut butter sandwiches at night, your choice of New Orleans newspaper in the morning or Wall St. Journal or NY Times. The hot tub in the fitness center is marvelous, with one of the best views of the city. Great restaurant in the hotel as well.
Unfortunately, I had one bad experience when I left. I had reserved a space on the airport shuttle, and paid the concierge the $13 fee. He gave me a ticket and receipt. I handed the receipt to the shuttle van driver when he picked me up, and he said nothing until we got to the airport. Then he said I had to pay $11. I explained that I had paid the concierge $13, and the driver said I was supposed to pay him only $2, with the other $11 going to the van driver. I got a bit hostile, and the driver backed off, but it was very unpleasant. I still don't know who was right (the hotel concierge or the van driver), but I would advise double checking on this matter if you have to use the airport shuttle when leaving.
