We arrived in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl this past January and were a little apprehensive after finding the lobby to be faily small. As this was game night the streets were packed with fans all clamoring to get into the Superdome or bars near the stadium.
We had to valet as the street parking looked a little shady to me, wasn't a bad choice, but be prepared to wait upon retrieving your vehicle. The valet was very friendly and offered to help out as much as possible.
The staff at the front desk was very polite, walking us through everything we'd need. I can't stress enough how nice they were.
The room. Wow. What a room. Huge, comfortable with plenty of space to spare. The bed was massive (California King) and the bedding was also quite comfortable. Had we not had a game to get to, we would've just lounged all night. The bathroom was also very spacious with great water pressure and plenty of soft towels.
We weren't able to experience anything else the hotel had to offer as we hit the game and made our way back late at night. Check out was a breeze.
Overall I definitely think this is a place to look into if you want a reasonably priced option for your stay in fantastic New Orleans.
