Checked in early evening on a Friday when we met the proprietor and desk worker who gave us a comprehensive handout of restaurants and things to do ;but that was the last we saw of them. We had to wait 2 hours for someone to arrive to settle up the bill the evening before we left. This old Victorian historic home with tall ceilings and too many chandeliers to count had a small yard and fountain out front which could be enjoyed from the second floor patio. Our room was small but had 2 windows and the door on the chifforobe would not stay shut. There was a used bar of soap left in the shower and none on the sink. No basic amenities like water glasses or shampoo were in in the room but those items as well as wine glasses and ice were available in a cubby behind a hanging curtain at the bottom of the stairs; one day we had a rug in the bathroom for 6 hours and although the room was cleaned daily, the used glasses were not taken away. No coffee or tea were offered, not even packets or plug in pots which were sorely missed upon awakening.
On the plus side, the location was smack dab in the middle of the French quarter and a ten minute walk to the conference we were attending.
Could probably do better to book elsewhere...would not recommend this place..
Have travelled the world extensively and am not particularly picky but this place left alot to be desired in terms of basic needs.
