The hotel is quite nice for the low rates they charged me (booked on their website and paid in full).The building is in the process of being renovated, but even so, the room we stayed in was nicely appointed and there were no signs of renovations on the 10th floor where the room was located. The staff is accommodating, and provided many good recommendations for places to eat. Yes, you can hear the St. Charles streetcar passing, but it becomes part of the ambient noise after a while. Being on a higher floor likely helped with the volume of the disturbance. Being a relatively light sleeper, I did not have a problem with the noise from the streetcar. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the French Quarter, and an even shorter walk to Harrah's and the Riverwalk area.
