Me and my husband went for the Superbowl weekend to enjoy the game in the Saints hometown. We are Louisiana natives so we love to visit New Orleans when we can. We decided to try out the newly renovated property as it is hard to find a quality hotel in a prime location. Most are worn down(room wise) etc. We stayed in the Luxury Suite. Overall we would not change a thing except for a few minor issues but the hotel is still working out some kinks. The location is perfect. You are close to everything but yet its away from the hustle and bustle...its only a block or so from the french quarter. Only a 3 min walk. The bellmen and staff were all very friendly. We ordered room service and the food was really good and they were prompt to bring it to us. The girl who brought it also was very courteous. Absolutely loved the layout of the room. Its like being in a luxury apt rather than a hotel so you feel more at home. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a seperate bathtub and shower and a seperate little room for the toilet area. Also the TV in the bathroom was a nice addition while getting ready or taking a bath. Like i said there was only a few minor things i would change....there was dust in several areas in the room that was not wiped, on the duvet cover on the bed there was something on there that to the naked eye while not in bed you would not notice but while lying in bed i saw it(again very small) so i can see how housekeeping would not notice it, and the last bath i took the tub latch to open the drain was stuck and i could not drain the water out(would have called about it but we were leaving so i didnt call to complain), the curtains were a little hard to close, and our view out the window was not the best in this rooms location.
Please do not listen to all the negative reviews on here and give this hotel a try esp. the suites! All my issues were minor and im sure in time will get better as this hotel has not even been open a year yet. We already are booked to stay again for our week long trip in November for our 3rd wedding anniversary and are looking forward to returning and trying out all the hotel has to offer. Our stay was too short to really do much this past stay.
