Stayed for a business trip. The hotel is recently renovated so all fixtures are in good order. 2 restaurants. Rooms are varying sizes and the pictures herein are from a corner suite. Had a convention when I stayed. Walking distance to the tourist attractions, and close enough (4 blocks from Bourbon St) but far enough away to be quiet and away from the street carnival and hustle. Cab service is fixed from the airport although cab drivers may hassle you to stop at an ATM if you are using a credit card. Good restaurants in walking distance. Hotel's restaurants are not overly impressive in cuisine or service. Breakfast is plentiful and the singing omelette man makes certain your breakfast is memorable and his omelettes are great. Elevator service is quick and need a room card to go beyond the 1st floor. The gym is totally new with great equipment and when I stayed not very populated. The pool is small and on the 15th floor beside the gym.
