My friends and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel and saw the old world charm. The lobby was beautiful, the room was a good size and the french quarter location was excellent. We had a great time having a drinks with bartender Parker at the carousel bar and watching the fireworks from the roof (it was 4th of July weekend). Although parking was ridiculously expensive, it was comparable to the other hotels in this area during this time. The only issue I have with this hotel is the lack of security. During festival time and there are hundreds of people walking the streets and going in and out of hotels. This hotel allowed every and anyone to enter without showing a room key at anytime of night. We ran into several people in the elevator going to the rooftop pool who were not guests of the hotel. Even though I like the hotel for the reasons I've stated, I would have to really consider the lack of security they provide before staying again.
