For my money and preferences this is still the best value for your travel dollar when travelling to or through New Orleans by Amtrak. Speaking as a 64 year old disabled veteran with slight mobility issues I have only minor difficulty walking the few blocks from Union Station to the hotel pulling my wheeled luggage behind me, and when the street car track improvements along the route are finished that will totally clear up. The rooms and hallways have been renovated since my stay last year with updated decor, LG flat screen televisions, a computer friendly work desk to make signing on to one's favorite sites via the free WIFI a breeze. If you're staying with a night time reader the goose neck reading lamps on either side of the beds have got to be the cats pajamas for you.
My only suggestion would be that the courtesy airport shuttle include service to Union Station for those Amtrak passengers not able or desirous to manage the walk.
In room coffee service was standard fare and very appreciated and the addition of an in room safe, the room I stayed in at any rate, is always a big plus. Were I staying for longer than a night not having to drop off my personal electronics and other valuables at the desk while sight seeing and dinning throughout the day is always a big plus.
