Careful research and trip advisor guidance produced an experience far beyond my expectations. This hotel is situated across the river from New Orleans central. You can see the action almost but you are on a now closed Navzl base. The grounds are just like being in a park. Safe and quiet. There is even an area for children to play.... More

Very clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We Would stay there again. It was very quiet in the area as it is on an empty military base. The Price was very reasonable. Close.to french quarter. They even let us leave our vehicle there for the week at no charge while we went on our cruise.

Stayed here on business. Room smelled like cigarette smoke, even though the hotel is non smoking. Far from anything resembling a decent neighborhood. Given all the options you have in Nola, stay elsewhere. The staff is friendly though. However, friendly staff can be found at a much better hotel and location.

Nice big rooms, far enough away from town as to not be as dirty. Service staff when we checked in were helpful-gps could not find the place as it's an old naval base so call for the address. Clean rooms, comfy bed and free parking/wifi. Only negative is no breakfast.

This gem of suites is tucked away from the crazy that is New Orleans. It's a quiet hotel within minutes of the city. We took a babysitter , a toddler, and an infant with us on our adventure. The location was 10 minutes away from our show at the Sanger theatre but felt safe enough to leave the kids. The... More

We stayed here on a visit to New Orleans. It is on an old naval base. The area is very pretty and quiet. A little tricky to get here but worth it. The extra person fee was a little steep and no breakfast. Free parking though.

We were looking for a affordable hotel close to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. As we fail to do so, we looked for a cheaper option across the river. This hotel is a good option for business or for budget traveling. There is a shuttle that commutes to downtown. The thing I did not particularly liked is that you're... More
