I stayed for a business meeating just for one nigth but it was really nice the time I had at this hotel. It has 2 ways to enter, but the best one is the one on Canal street, just in the middle of everything. It is really close from the Shops (about 5 blocks).
My room was big and very confortable. Beds were so inviting to stay longer. I had a perfect view to Canal Street and you can even see the river.
My only complaint would be that I was there for a meeting and I guess my neighbors were there to party so they were making noise all across the hall closing and opening doors and talking too loud. Walls seemed to thin at that moment.
Maria was really helpful and trying to make a difference and she realy did.
The meeting facilities are very well equiped and it has a whole floor just for that (3rd floor).
Food was realy good and diverse, including New Orleans style cuisine.
The quality of this hotel is just over the top. I would stay there again and recommend it for short or long stays.
