This hotel was quite nice. They were remodeling during my stay but it was nothing that hindered my experience. All of the French Quarter was booked and it was expensive anyways being that we arrived during Jazzfest. But I found this hotel and everything was great. The beds were comfortable. My room had a window on the side of the building that overlooked St. Charles Ave and Lafayette Park. It was about a 8-10 minute walk to the French Quarter but it is well lit and safe in my opinion. There is no self-parking and Valet can be slow. I chanced it and parked on the street. No Ticket thank goodness. The front desk people were helpful and kind. I have no complaints at all.
The toiletries were Bath and Body works. All "Ascend Collection" hotels have this little feature. The next night I stayed at the St. James Hotel two blocks away which was another fine hotel.
I found the hotel on HotelTonight App. Use it and get 25$ credit by using KHERNANDEZ66 as a redemption code. :)
