We arrived at 8pm on Saturday night. There was a short line at the check-in. I got to the front of the line to find a very cheerful Front Desk agent. He was probably happy to deal with anyone after the gentleman before me was rude, disrespectful and really quite mean.
I had booked my room through Priceline so I was not expecting anything but an average 4 star room. It could have faced a brick wall because people who book on 3rd Party sites are not a top priority and I understand this.
I tried to be as easy a check-in as possible. I asked if I could have a King Bed but understood if they did not. He said no problem. He had a complimentary upgrade for us because we were flexible. So we got upgraded to the Club Floor. This was highly unexpected. We had a very normal room but access to the club lounge for breakfast, afternoon drinks and appetizers. We could always stop in and grab a Coke or a bottled water. What a treat!
Overall the Hotel was a great location. Easy to get to the French Quarter, Casino, WW2 Museum and Super Dome/Arena area. Felt it was a very safe location. Lots of police nearby.
Check out was a breeze as it is at most hotels. Parking is $30/Day with Valet. Parked the car on Saturday didn't touch it again until Wednesday when we left.
Enjoyed the hotel and enjoyed the city, look forward to going back again.
