My wife and I stayed here for one night this past weekend and were very pleased. Check in went smoothly and although we asked for a room facing Lee Circle, we were fine with having a view of the World War II Museum. The room was small, and we expected that after reading the reviews on here, but it was very clean. My wife LOVED the books that were all over the hotel and in the room...nice touch. The hotel is right across the street from where the St. Charles streetcar picks you up, which we took to Canal St. to get to the French Quarter. We booked our room through Groupon and was given a $25 credit to use for drinks and food at Tivoli & Lee. We were told by the front desk that we could use it after we checked out, but the restaurant manager told us something different, which was sort of embarrassing. After going back and forth between the restaurant and hotel, she said it was taken care of, but when I checked my bank account, I was charged the full amount for the meal and didn't receive a credit from the hotel. The miscommunication between the two entities was my only issue.
