This well-located hotel was an ideal place to stay on our recent New Orleans trip. The room was spacious and well-appointed with a comfortable bed. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly since we were first-time visitors. The breakfast is definitely continental, with cereal and breads, coffee and juice. There are only a few tables, but we were generally the only people there for our three mornings. As the desk clerk explained, most visitors to New Orleans do not bother with breakfast. There is a lovely Copelands restaurant on the lower level which was very helpful to newcomers for our first dinner. The food is delicious, the staff amazingly friendly, and prices within range. Although parking was $18/day, that's apparently true for most hotels here. It was easy to retrieve our car when we did need it. The location proved to be perfect, far from the noise of the French Quarter, but only a 10 minute or so streetcar ride away. The streetcar stop is practically in front of the hotel. By the way, streetcar fare for seniors is incredible (40 cents if memory serves). All in all, I would recommend this hotel very highly and would definitely stay there again.
