We arrived at the hotel after a short trip from Biloxi, MS via the back roads. We got there in the early afternoon so our room was ready. It was my friend who booked the hotels and for the price, the hotel's first impressions far exceeded my expectations. The lobby was bright and airy and clean. The room was of average size, for a room with two queens. Spacious enough for all of us and our belongings, yet nothing noteworthy. The biggest point about the hotel itself is the pool. Set in a courtyard, the pool was a very nice place to spend an hour or so, relaxing after the drive.
Again, my stay was only a night, so it was paramount for us to be at the centre of it all. If your primary reason for going to New Orleans is for downtown business and/or tourist purposes, the location can't really be beat. It's close to the office towers of downtown but set on the edge of the French Quarter, with all its attractions.
Bottom line: If you want a good hotel for not too much money that's centrally located to both the French Quarter and downtown, this is an excellent choice.
