I was very impressed once inside and during our stay. The restaurant was delicious for breakfast and I honestly couldn't have found a happier, friendlier or more helpful staff. We left our car there for a week while on a cruise and it was in perfect shape when we returned to pick it up. The hotel was VERY clean. VERY... More

The décor in the hotel was modern-contemporary look. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was clean throughout. Breakfast was $7 per adult , but our kids ages ranging from 16 to 8 ate free. That was great for our budget! The food in the restaurant was bland, I expected better seasoned food since we were in New Orleans. The... More

Stayed here from Ded 14, 2014 until Mar 14, 2014, while working on the Zatarain's Expansion Project. The front desk personnel made my stay enjoyable. Ikeisha, Treneise, Shavonne, and Katie where friendly and very helpful whenever I had to extend my stay from 3 weeks to 3 months. They are knowledgeable about the surrounding areas, local restaurants, and things to... More

The front desk folks are terrific. They even make hot fresh cookies all day long! The location was in a little pocket by the freeway all by itself. Very convenient to everything. I felt we were in a safe area & so was our car. We had room 1008 which faced the freeway. I never heard any noise, but my... More

Don't want to be a Debbie downer so let's start with the positives. The location is definitely a plus if you're not looking to pay absorbent prices that are charged for staying in the French Quarters. Less than 10 minutes to Canal St./CBD area. Staff was very helpful. For the negatives, initially i requested a room on a high floor... More

First and foremost, the entire front office and restaurant staff were friendly, courteous, and helpful. I am hopeful that this was just an isolated incident but we had 2 dirty towels and the bed sheets on one of the beds had a stain on it. We placed the dirty towels on the floor to be taken the following day and... More

Hi Orios39, Thanks for your business and for your review! I'm saddened to read that you experienced issues during your recent stay. Stained sheets are unacceptable and I'm embarrassed that we didn't solve the issue when you reported it. I'd like to learn more about your stay and work to make up for the oversight.

Stayed here during a recent business trip. The first room I was given was supposed to be a Non-Smokers room. Someone had clearly been smoking in there and it also had a damp musky smell to it. They promptly changed me to a much better room. Management came by to apologize and I had 2 free drink vouchers under my... More

It was a nice stay. The room was clean and comfortable but it was noisy. We faced the highway and it sounded as if we had a window opened. The staff was friendly. I wish they offered some kind of shuttle service but I would stay here again.
