“Nice place to stay in a noisey area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The staff and the hotel are above average for the area. There is plenty of security at night to keep people out who do not belong there at night. The folks at the front desk are always nice and attentive to your needs. The rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable. I am military and was in the area for training. The hotel going rate was well over $300 for a single night. I talked to the thin gentleman (can't remember his name) who works in the afternoon. Very nice man and an asset to the hotel. He talked with management and gave me a rate near the government rate. I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for some type of discount to offset the very high rate this hotel commands.

Went on another cruise from New Orleans and decided to stay in the Quarter again, but this time was a bachelor's cruise. Had to pay for parking, bummer. Staff was ok, it was a great place to be for what we wanted to do. For the price we only spent, we got a balcony and view on Burbon street and had a blast. Very old building with a lot of restoration and modernization kept up. Not like some of the forgotten b&bs or smaller hotels in the Quarter.

Room Tip: Burbon Street balcony, second floor!

The rooms are nice (although nothing special), there's a cute small pool, a tiny gym, and the location is right in the middle of the party (Bourbon st.). There is good free wi-fi throughout the hotel (including the rooms).
On the minus side, the shower had low-flow (seems to be a problem in other hotels in New Orleans as well), and the water was not always hot. In the sink, there was no real hot water (lukewarm at best), which made shaving a drag.

This was our first time to New Orleans and this hotel and location was magnificent. Staff was great and accommodating. The rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was very good also. The lobby was a bit noisy but that is Bourbon Street. Outside pool was very comfortable with plenty of room.

Room Tip: Rooms directly on Bourbon Street are noisy till 4am.

I stayed for 2 nights. My main complaint is with the maid service. I travel a lot, and found that service poor. First, the maid staff I encountered, with the exception of 2, were not pleasant and seemed upset to be there. Second, there is a coffee maker in the room. There was no creamer when I arrived and none was put there during my stay. Nor was the coffee or sugar replaced. When I returned in the evening, I noticed a green substance, with the consistency of shampoo, dripped down the inside of the tub. Nothing in the bathroom was that color, so I don't know what that was, but it was not there when I left. The bed was not "made", but rather the covers were just thrown back on.

Very Nice inside, newly renovated (not everything is finished), a beautiful courtyard pool area that people were actually using. Very friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast is available (but go out and experience the local cuisine, it is different in the light of day). The price I paid was about $175 (hotels.com), but remember to add all the taxes they have to hit you with and the $33 a night valet parking.

Location, location, location - you can't beat it. Right at the corner of Bourbon and Toulouse. We had a room on the Toulouse side and it was quiet enough for sleeping even though the town roars well past 2 AM

Our room was well appointed, and clean, and smelled fine (if you have been to Bourbon before, you know why I said that). The only negatives were the windows were filthy on the outside and the fresh window paint job looked like it was done by a 3 year old. Some of the plumbing fixtures were hurriedly installed with poor fit and finish, but all were functional.

One additional note: this place is set up well for large groups, conferences, etc..., there were 2 or more going on while we were there. Larger groups can take over a place and get preferential treatment eg. the main lobby sitting area was roped off and set up for a meeting.

All things considered, if you want to be in the center of action this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: If you like Jazz, or just want a less hectic evening, take a cab ($8 inc tip) to Frenchmen Street...

Located on the 500 block of Bourbon Street and with half of the rooms having outward facing balconies means you've hit the jackpot on branded hotel and location. The balance of rooms have "courtyard" facing balconies and are much quieter. Only have of the street balconies face on to Bourbon, the rest face a side street...which does NOT make it any quieter. The staff here is amazingly helpful. Security is also top-notch, even though you're staying in the middle of the party you don't have to worry about the party coming up to your room as a room key is required to even access the lobby during evening hours. There is a small piano lobby bar if you're looking to people watch without being in the middle of the party.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep at night: courtyard. If you want to sleep during the day: street.
