Like just about every other review has said, this location is great. This was our first trip to New Orleans and we had no idea what to expect - how far the hotel would be from where we wanted to visit, etc., and were very happily surprised. We arrived about 4 hours before check in and since our room was ready they let us check in. That truly allowed us to start our vacation the morning we arrived. We booked this as an exchange through Interval. The room was a 1 Br unit on the front of the building which was very quiet. The only noise we could hear inside was the occasional train going along the river. The rooms are not super large, but very clean and comfortable. Queen size bed in the bdrms with good closet and dresser storage, small sofa, table and chairs in the living room. The bath was kept very clean and the toiletries were of nice quality. The kitchenette is small but functional and had adequate glasses, etc. Ice manchine on each floor is very convenient. We loved the balcony on the 2nd floor overlooking Esplanade. At night you can hear music from the local clubs and relax with your drinks, there was seldom more than 2 other guests, if any, out there. There are also "inside" balconies" outside each room that are really kind of neat with tables and chairs. These open atrium type hallways look down at the little splash pool or a garden. There is also a nice excercise room in the hotel. The walk to the French Market was about 3 minutes long, about the same to the streetcar stop. With the exception of one employee who took nasty to a whole new level, the staff is super nice and helpful. Housekeeping kept the room tidy and were quick to get you something you may need. If you want super fancy accomodations in the middle of the bars this may not be for you. But if you want clean, comfortable rooms with a great location I would not recommend anything else. If we return to NOLA, this is where we will stay.
Rooms facing Esplanade were quiet. Rooms toward the back (ie: 400, 401) may be noisier with clubs b...
