I am a Judge from New Orleans, Louisiana who had the absolute pleasure of staying at this wonderfully charming, yet classy hotel while in the Springs to bring my son to college. We stayed in a suite and it was absolutely elegant. Everyone was so friendly, the lobby was very cozy and inviting and our suite was fantastic. I would refer anyone coming to Colorado Springs to stay at this hotel. I felt as though I was staying at a high end New Orleans hotel, which greatly helped with my son's adjustment to being away from home. Further, this is where I plan to stay every time I am in Colorado Springs visiting my son. I especially loved Pete, the bartender. He used to tend bars in New Orleans and his mixology skills definitely showed that. Also, the restaurant is absolutely divine. If you are looking for a New Orleans style meal, at a reasonable price, whether it is for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you will NOT be disappointed!!
