This is a smallish hotel on the edge of the city's French Quarter, where the Town Hall proudly proclaims itself as HOTEL DE VILLE. The best two things about it are its French-influenced cuisine, best represented by the quality of the croissants served with breakfast; and its superb location right on the promenade that allows you in three short steps to smell the fresh sea air; hear the thunder of the turbulent waves, and take in the stormy view of the Bay of Bengal in January. One of the downsides to our visit was that the open-air gourmet restaurant on the top floor was not functioning,and that the staff seemed a little clued out. The room was comfortable, and all right for a one-night stopover but for longer than that, there was inadequate storage space for the contents of our cases. The place was clean, nicely appointed, and just a little old-fashioned. But other than for summer holidays with the family, I am not sure why anyone wold want to visit this city.
