As a local who is from New Orleans, this hotel is always my first option. The staff is great. The rooms are large and the bedding is excellent. The hotel serves a FREE breakfast that consists of grits, bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, coffee, apple and orange juice and continental breakfast items too!

This is great hotel with an excellent breakfast and great service. It's located across the bridge from New Orleans. There are only two floors but no elevator. I stayed here during the Essence Festival July 3-6. As always, the price was increased because the Essence Festival was going on.

The staff was some of the nicest I've ever experienced in a hotel. They greeted me warmly every time I entered or exited the hotel. Great breakfast, comfortable bed, free Wi-Fi and a very clean room; overall a very pleasant stay. There was one negative: the AC unit ran only in the auto position. I enjoy sleeping with the fan...

A Clean, quiet comfortable room was most important and that was there. The pool was clean and refreshing. A Fresh, full breakfast was served in pleasant atmosphere with colorful artwork on signage and on walls.
