I stayed here with friends during mardi gras this year. The hotel is beautiful, with an authentic French Quarter feel. The lobby is impressively large and filled with chandeliers, marble and mirrors.
The rooms are spacious, very clean and well appointed and the bedding is comfortable.
Wi-fi is available and free of charge.
A small cafe and bar are conveniently located inside the hotel and we found the prices to be reasonable.
On the whole, the staff (other than one unbelievably rude woman working in the bar) were very friendly and helpful, especially considering what a busy time it was. A special mention should go to the door staff and concierge/luggage service staff.
The only downside was an unexpected additional 60 dollar charge at the end of our stay for security during mardi gras. We totally understood the need for security but would have appreciated being told about it either when we booked or checked in.
On the whole though, a great hotel. I would recommend to couples and groups and would definitely stay here again!
