Purchased a Travelzoo deal for $79/night. This hotel is so convenient. 2 blocks away from the French quarter. About 6-7 blocks to the Superdome. Definitely walkable to a lot of the nearby attractions. The lobby is beautiful, and they offer several computers for guests to use. They also have a gym on the 11th floor with treadmills, eliptical, bike, and weights along with towels and water. We had 2 queen beds in our room. It was adequate in size. The downside is the bathroom. The shower head was mounted really high, so for someone under 5'4", by the time the water reached me, it was so weak. Also, the vent didn't seem to be in working condition.
Everything was going well with the hotel until the day before we left. We had an incident with the housekeeping services which we had to file a complaint. The management was apologetic about our missing items, but the incident left a bad taste in our mouths. On top of that, we saw a huge roach crawling across our room on the last night. If it wasn't for these things, we would definitely give this hotel higher marks. Would I stay here again? Maybe. There are plenty of hotels nearby, so I would definitely look around first before choosing this place again.
