We traveled to New Orleans for an event, not 100% a vacation/tourist weekend.
First, the positives. The hotel is in an ideal location. We were able to walk everyplace we needed to go or took a street car, which is just a few blocks away. The staff were all very friendly. The complimentary breakfast was consistent with other hotel free breakfast offers.
Now, the not so positives. While the hotel is in a great location, that comes with drawbacks. Our room was located in the carriage house overlooking the pool. We were able to hear all the street noise in our room. All night long. Every night the outdoor furniture was being moved around (not sure if it was by guests or hotel workers cleaning) and it was a loud metal on brick grinding sound. Very loud and very unpleasant. Sleeping was an issue and I've never had issues sleeping in hotels before this trip. The room was in serious need of maintenance. There was no hot water, warm water at best, so showers were quick. The AC was turned as low as we could get it but the temp was inconsistent and the room constantly humid/stuffy. And there were noticeable areas where the tile, grout, and sheetrock need to be patched.
While this was not an unpleasant hotel or experience, the positives weren't stellar enough to outweigh the drawbacks. Next time, I'd consider a different hotel knowing that I'm taking street noise chances anyplace in the French Quarter.
