My husband and I paid our first visit to New Orleans to make sure our son had chosen well for his four years of college.
My husband used points and chose the French Quarter Courtyard. We had a rental car so we could get Uptown easily. Valet parking was easy despite one curt employee. She seemed a bit cranky, but with humor and a little bit of confrontational teasing, she warmed up and laughed.
Walking around was so easy from this location. We gravitated towards Royal, but visited nearly every block of the quarter. There is a convenient Starbucks in the lobby for a quick oatmeal and coffee at breakfast.
The room was well-appointed with modern loft-type fixtures and cozy grey interior. The sitting room was very comfortable, with good lighting and enough outlets for charging electronics. The refrigerator had enough room for water bottles with a sink and coffee maker.
Would definitely choose this location again.
