I had a great stay here! I was here on a recent weekend, arriving on Saturday and departing on Monday. I booked it on Priceline and really have no complaints.
My flight arrived very early on Saturday morning, so I came here hoping to check in early. The attendant at the front desk said they had no rooms yet and there were a few others in line ahead of me, but she checked me in, took my cell phone number and offered to call as soon as a room became ready. Until then, she said I could leave my bags with the bellman downstairs if I wished to. Sure enough, within about 45 minutes she called to let me know my room was ready and that I could pick up my keys at the front desk.
This hotel is in a great location IMO, about 2 blocks from the end of Bourbon Street where all the nightlife happens, and a little more of a walk to the riverfront; It's close enough that you can quickly get to the craziness and fun, but far enough away that the rooms in this hotel are generally quiet at night. In fact, the entire time I was here I don't think I heard any noise at all, either from outside this hotel or from adjoining rooms. It is a bit disjointed to get up to the rooms, as one needs to take an elevator from the ground floor where the valet and taxis are located to the 2nd floor where you'll find the lobby, bar, a Starbucks (which tends to keep odd hours and isn't always open), business services, a small gym and the front desk, along with a snack/beverage/sundries kiosk. From there, you need to walk past the front desk and down a corridor to another set of elevators which take you up to the rooms.
The rooms here are quite nice, especially considering the price I paid. They're laid out a bit like suites, with a living space, couch, desk and TV as you enter, then an area with the bathroom to your right and a kitchenette and coffee maker to your left (they have a microwave in the common area along with the ice machine, but not in the rooms). Beyond that you'll find the bedroom with another flat screen TV. The doors to enter the bedroom and bathroom are sliding doors which run on a track, and were a bit unique. The closet was a bit small, I didn't see a safe in the room, nor is there a tub for those who may want one, only a shower. All the furnishings and paint looked fresh, updated and newer. The bedding was really comfortable, and as previously mentioned, the rooms are quiet, at least where we were on the back side of the hotel.
The gym is a little sparse, with just 3 aerobic machines (2 treadmills and an elliptical, I believe) some pilates balls and free weights. As mentioned, the Starbucks here seems to keep odd hours; As I was leaving on Monday AM at 11 o'clock, it was closed and dark, but they did have items in the display cases. WiFi in the room and at the business services area was free and fast, and one cool feature is that they have a complimentary computer and printer set up between the front desk and the elevators which is only for printing boarding passes before you head to the airport, which was an interesting offering that I made use of.
