We went for a convention and my colleague had his own room and my husband and I checked into another. He got a huge king room with a double jacuzzi tub and we got a queen in a tuna can room. There was a mistake because we booked the same type of king room and paid the same.
I politely complained and nothing was able to be done, but I complained again to the next shift and they put me in a nice King room with a balcony. There had been a cancellation and they shifted late comers in and gave us the room. It was spectacular to sit on the balcony each night or morning.
The pool was heated and warm towels, the workout room was adequate and clean, and the doorman was so nice. We could see the mass of people on Bourbon at night and had plenty of activity with weddings and such. Each morning was a short walk to the convention center. If you are unable to walk or take a shuttle, you may want to get a hotel closer, but it is only about .6 miles away and it is a lovely walk.
We were in room 440 and our friend with the tub was in 578, I think. Definitely a nice hotel, especially in a city where cleanliness is not always the norm.More
