LOVED the location - near Bourbon Street (action), Royal Street (shopping), and Canal Street (street cars to sight-seeing). Staff was friendly and helpful, especially Larry who made excellent Pumpkin Spice Latte's. Hotel was spotless. We traveled with another couple... and I'm not sure why this always happens to us - They got a nice view of Canal Street, Tulane University, and a rooftop with some guy doing Tai Chi... But we got a disappointing view of a building with other guest rooms directly across from ours. Do NOT leave your curtains open! We were on the 8th floor, but no sun streaming in EVER (blocked by the other building). Was kinda depressing. Our room had two king beds and we graciously offered to change rooms to a single king... but they were full and not interested. We also had no tub - only showers in both ours and our friends' rooms. I'm a tub gal and look forward to relaxing in a hot tub with a good book. Couldn't do that here. To be fair... room was really nice, impeccably clean, and I would stay here again because of the great location and friendly staff.
