We have been to New Orleans quite a few times, this time we ventured out to Cajun Country, and rented a car, I guess there was a convention of sometime going on - no grand festivities, (though NOLA always has something going on) this was the only hotel we could get a room at. Very expensive and noisy - it took us 2 hours to drive one block, granted, that was certainly not the fault of the hotel, but it it just so snobbish, having said that , the hotel service was nice, but could not do anything about our "last room" booking and the horrific noise, drunks outside and we were on the second floor. They did however, waive our parking fee. The hotel is a bit stuffy, I get the good reviews, the carousel bar is worth a visit, without the stay. People that bragged about the smoking policies - I would recommend that they loose the smoking policy - outside too in the hotel areas.
