We had travelled extensively, but never visited New Orleans. We debated staying in the French Quarter but chose the Intercontinental based on excellent reviews. We stayed two nights a few days after Mardi Gras, and it was the perfect choice. With the exception of the viewing stands still on the street, you would never gave guessed there was a huge party and parade two days earlier. Every aspect of the facility was beautiful--from the lobby to the expansive exercise center to our bathroom. The staff was universally professional, welcoming and helpful: the bellman, valet parking, concierge, and especially Anthony and Salman at the registration desk. Our room was spacious with new, beautiful furnishings, a most comfy king bed, lovely linens and a great view of the city. We really appreciated the easy-to-use safe, robe, separate bath/toilet and sink areas, and Keurig coffee maker. I repeatedly told my husband I felt constantly pampered--even the toiletries were generous and top-of-the-line. The location is perfect--away from the constant hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street but only a 3-block walk away. Also an easy walk to all the famous sight-seeing spots in the French Quarter, the mule-drawn carriages, tourist bus tours, cable car stops and the World War II Museum (a MUST see!). Dozens of wonderful restaurants within a few blocks, and we also highly recommend the Hotel restaurant (Trenasse). Excellent food at reasonable prices and terrific service. We thought this long-overdue trip to the Big Easy would be a "one and done," but we now agree a few nights at this hotel must be an annual event for at least the next few years.
