The hotel is a small oasis in the French Quarter with a nice outside courtyard for sitting and relaxing in and a small pool with sun loungers.
However, our first impression was not good. We arrived in the dark around 10.30 and after unloading our bags from the cab we had problems finding reception. Tip - it is on the right through doors in the entrance alleyway. Once we had found it the person checking us in did not seem to know what he was doing and was rather off hand - assume it to be the night porter. He gestured down the alley and said the lifts were there - they are but it's not obvious and someone else showed us where to go. No signs. The room itself was very nice (with a universal charger for phone etc) but was completely let down by the bathroom which had glass doors and whist admittedly they were frosted meant that any sound carried through to the bedroom and there was nowhere to put anything in there, including towels. Style over substance. On checking out we told the receptionist and she said most guests say the same. However, they are due to start some re- furb and hope to address this.
