I can't fault this hotel (some points aside). We stayed in it four nights and had a wonderful time.
The room I was allocated was small and didn't have curtains -- only blinds -- but I was moved to a far more pleasant room with more space. It was in a room across the road from the main hotel, but that didn't matter. The view was uninspiring: it was just a car park, but as it was little used, my room was quiet.
The room was spotless and had all the facilities I needed, including an umbrella, which proved invaluable in the stormy weather during our stay.
The hotel is in the so-called French district, just a few metres from the waterfront, so in terms of location this is as good as it gets. Walk a few yards away from the waterfront and you have a staggering assortment of restaurants, which together constitute some of the finest dining in America. You also have much the prettiest American city, New Orleans excepted, at your fingertips. Walk a few more yards and you get to the market area, which is great fun.
Parking is easy, as there are a couple of parking garages close by. They cost about $14 a night.
The rooms don't have coffee machines, but the hotel leaves out coffee, cookies, and other goodies at suitable times of day. There is a free bottle of water in the room.
The staff are friendly and the reception desk did all that was necessary to help us enjoy our stay. Given that this is the most wonderful city to visit I couldn't have asked for more.
