I stayed here for three nights for a girl’s weekend; it was a busy weekend and most of the French Quarter hotels were sold out (or available for more than $300/night). The location is excellent--in the quarter, but not on Bourbon. The facility is excellent, and includes parking in a courtyard, which is a very nice perk. However, the room we stayed in (the paddlewheeler suite) is dated and could use some new linens.
When we stayed, the rates were $200/night for 4 people, which was a pretty good deal. Since then, the rates have gone up to $300/night for 4 people.
Our hostess was very nice and helpful, and check in and check out were pretty easy.
We did not expect luxury, but rather a comfortable room in a convenient location. This is exactly what we received.
