This place was a perfect spot due to its location. It was right in front of the trolley that you can take to the zoo or french quarter. It seems to be in a safe area we never once felt threatened. They have gated parking that only has 23 spots so get there early! We didn't and had to park around the corner at a hospital parking garage which they (Hotel) paid for. They have a restaurant right next door if you don't wanna go to far to grab a bite. They also have a wine bar a block away if that's your thing. The area is also very nice to take a stroll or go jogging down St. Charles. The room we stayed in wasn't very big, but fine just for us. They did have a microwave and mini fridge which helped us out. Beds were comfortable and the room was very clean no issues. The safe in the room got locked by my little girl and we didn't know the code to unlock it and we called the front desk and she came up to unlock it for us at 10:30 at night which I thought was very nice of her. The elevators were tiny, but fast. They had a awesome breakfast which was included in the hotel price which was very good with lots of variety eggs, sausage, toast, waffles, cereals and more. Lots of juices, coffee and milk. Kids really enjoyed it. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone coming to visit New Orleans! Loved it!
