This was the perfect hotel for mardi gras. Very close to Bourbon St and the other attractions. We were impressed that they hadn't increased their valet parking rate for mardi gras (the parking lot across the street had raised their rate to $50 a day). They checked us in early. The rooms are very spacious and have blackout blinds and a thick sliding door to the bedroom to block out any noise from the hallways. The lounge area was also good so my husband could watch TV while I got ready. The fitness room was tiny but as everyone was hungover from mardi gras I had it almost to myself. They had an in house Starbucks which I also liked and the girl that worked the till was very polite.
