Walking into the lobby of the hotel I wasn't sure what to expect. It is clearly an older property. That means one of two things. First, a hotel that tries to slap some lipstick on it but underneath is an old hotel. Or two, a historic property that feels like an old gem. This is clearly the latter.
As a Diamond Hilton member I did get an upgrade from the standard king room. That being said, it was a nice large room. It felt like a modern hotel room yet preserved the historic charm of the property. The room was quiet and comfortable. Only complaint was the lack of power outlets. They were there. But you had to hunt for them and spread out your electronics throughout the room.
The staff was friendly. The property clean. And located close enough to the New Orleans' action yet far enough away where you can escape the noises and crowds.
