The hotel staff was by far the best thing about this hotel. Everyone was nice and friendly.
The hotel is located in a good area. It is about 5 minutes from Bourbon street and Canal Street. It was clean and was well decorated.
We chose to get a balcony because I love to hang out on the balcony and enjoy views. However, the balcony on all of the rooms faced an office building with no views except people working and eating on one of the floors across the street. On top of that, the rooms adjacent to us had easy access to our balcony if they wanted to climb the small divider. With the window shades open there was no privacy in the room (including the full time view of the people in the next building that was always occupied during the day) and offered an insecure feel unless you kept the balcony door shut and locked at all times.
So if you fear some crazy jumping onto your balcony and possibly into your room, skip the balcony. It was about $50-$70 more anyway. (One note on the balcony: I am not a first timer in a city like this. I just expect a little more out of my balcony. On the other hand, it did not look like any other hotels had better balconies. So it might just be my perspective).
The room itself was a bit noisy. I could hear people above us and next to us. Nothing loud, but the noise was definitely present.
