This hotel is only blocks from the French Quarter, so if you are going on vacation and can't get a room in the Quarter, or it's too expensive, try this one. I stayed here on business, and it's important to know it has very limited services. There are no newspapers, no food, drinks, etc. They do have a small coffee shop in the lobby in the morning where they have prepackaged muffins. The workout room has VERY old equipment that is in marginal working condition. I opted to go for a walk outside.
There is a walgreens and CVS within a block, so you can get what you need - just not in the hotel. The staff was friendly and the rooms fairly clean but old. The price was good, as was the location, so I would recommend.
Two tips: don't bring a car - expensive parking. Also, ask not to have an "inside" room - many of their rooms don't have a window to outside - the window looks out at the inside of the hotel. I find this really stifling and didn't know to ask.
Get a room with a window to the outside.

Just a side note, we do offer a complimentary newspaper in the morning on a first come, first serve basis. Also, the restaurant space that is located right off the hotel's lobby is re-opening soon and under new ownership. In addition, we're in the process of upgrading our fitness center to include new amenities.
If there is anything else we can do to make your next stay even more memorable, please do not hesitate to contact us again (504-522-0083)!
