My hubs and I checked in here late on a Friday night. I quickly had sticker shock over the price to park... $25 a day!! This was the difference between staying in a small town and NOLA. It could not be avoided, so I quickly accepted it and moved on. We were traveling with our Yorkie, Enzo, at a hotel for the first time, so I didn't really know what to expect. They put us on the 9th floor, which we affectionately called dog alley. It seems they put all those traveling with pets on the same floor, which makes sense b/c we are much more understanding of each other's random barking. This made me feel much better if we had to leave and he whined a few minutes.
I think that it is still very important that guests bring a crate for their pets to sleep in while at the hotel alone! While visiting a pit bull and beagle opened their door and got out to wander the hallways! B/c the doors automatically shut behind them it was unknown for awhile whom they belonged to. Pretty scary!
I would say there was a bit of urine smell to the air... But sense so many probably leave their dogs to roam the room for hours, what do you expect.
The location was within walking distance of all the good stuff NOLA has to offer. We did not use our car once in the 4 days we were there. That is a major plus.
The main thing I would like to see changed is GRASS!!!!! A wee bit of grass would go a long way. The designated pet area is pitiful. It is down an alley with bits of glass everywhere and dirt. No grass! We had to walk at least two blocks to a park for Enzo to find any relief. I did not feel safe going there at night so hubs took over that job...
All in all I would return here, Please, Please get some grass!!!!
PS- It was like a pot of gold finding a rolling luggage cart to take our many things to the room. They need more than one of these!
