This hotel is conveniently located in downtown New \Orleans within walking distance to the French Quarter as well as Canal Street shopping. Hotel is super clean and room was large and well appointed. Staff was friendly and helpful. Didn't mind the $39.95 valet parking per night because once the vehicle is parked, you can walk anywhere you want to go and not have to call for the car numerous times. The French Quarter is close, as is the shopping area at the end of Canal Street. The city felt safe and it was pretty clean, considering there was a big event, Royal Street Stroll, the night I arrived. It was like a street party. Enjoyed my short stay and will definitely return!
