I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel and staff. The rooms are clean and although the hotel is an old building the rooms have been updated with the amenities that modern travelers expect. Yes, there are very slight peeling edges of the wallpaper, and the wood trim has been painted many times, but that's just part of the history, as well as maintaining a hotel in a climate with insane humidity. The location within the French Quarter provided for great access to everything. Parking is by valet at $25 per day -- here's a tip -- USE IT! Otherwise there is NO place for your car. The valet guys are great, as is all of the staff. John at the front desk is thoroughly professional, and will call you by name if he checked you in. John was a big part of our satisfaction with this hotel. Nice swimming pool to wash off the daily dust. Breakfast is on the thin side, but when staying in the French Quarter you are going to go out to different eating spots anyway, which is probably why it doesn't pay them to stock up a big breakfast for folks who won't be there to eat it. All in all a very nice hotel with a great location. I would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend this hotel to my friends. Make your reservations early, as this is a popular spot.
