We loved this place! Great value, great location, charming (not what you think of when you think of a chain) The breakfast was really good, lots of choices. Lounge/lobby very tastefully decorated with atmosphere. The hotel is in the Warehouse District, very charming, nice landscaping, great restaurants nearby. Low key compared to the French Quarter but with lots of excellent dining choices nearby. Very convenient to the conference center--3 minutes if you have to wait to cross the street.
The only complaint was that on one day it took 2 phone calls to get the room made up--and this was at 3 pm.--housekeeping hadn't shown up all day.
