Location not too near downtown but also not far away. Plenty of things within walking distance pending what you feel like doing (clubs/bars, restaurants, shops, churches, etc). Cab ride to downtown was around $11, not too bad especially if you aren't from here and do not feel like driving and parking, just take the cab as its soooo much easier. We actually live 30 min from New Orleans and had a mini vacation and still took cabs, just easier.
Hotel has some seriously impressive amenities on site. Pool and hot tub, workout area, game room-ish place (was in the "lounge", and only had a wii and no idea where you got games from? Front desk maybe?), and the aforementioned "lounge" was really impressive with fresh coffee each morning.
Valet service was kind of odd. The guys were super nice and polite, but each room is only allowed to valet one car. So if you are in more than one car, good luck. They recommended us parking across the street but said it would be wise to have the car moved by 8am as that's when the city comes out and starts ticketing. No good. We ended up driving to the casino (Harrah's), parking in garage, playing for 30 min and getting free parking and took cab ($11) back to room.
Right next door is Igor's, a 24 hour bar room, but I couldn't hear one bit of noise from there so no need to worry. Just a heads up in case you want a late night! 1/2 block away is Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro, seriously good food!!! Right past that is a Walgreens in case you forgot anything.
The trolley tracks outside hotel were under construction this past week, but odds are by the time you read this, book room, and go, it will all be done.
Rooms were nice and very clean. All sheets were clean and pillows were just fine. Overall pretty nice place in a cool part of town. Def worth checking out!
