I love choice hotels, that's why I stayed here but this was not a good decision. My room was horrible. It smelled like smoke, carpet was filthy, windows dirty, bathroom filled with mildew, and the maid just walked in our room without knocking. The queen size bed is more a full size, so if you have to share this bed with someone it might be a little difficult. I will never stay here again. I read a sign at the front desk that stated the hotel under went a two million dollar renovation but I did not see it in my room. There's no pool at this location. The hotel has a wonderful lobby, so if you're looking for a nice place to hang out then this might be for you. I'd give this place a one star if the staff wasn't helpful and the location of the hotel wasn't great. The hotel is in walking distance of the casino, french quarter, and superdome; however if yo're going to pay $200+ a night and you want a nice room I'd stay elsewhere. I know the next time I'm in New Orleans I WILL NOT be staying here.
