My husband and I love this hotel! The rooms are lovely - modern, but still retaining some of the original features of the building, with lovely decor. The bathrooms are fantastic - again, with all mod cons but renovated in a style that is sympathetic to the building and New Orleans. The location is great - only two blocks to Bourbon St and Canal St, fair enough away for it to be quiet but easy to stumble back to!
There is quite a popular bar/lounge area downstairs that had live music and great cocktails, but it was a bit noisy. We were on the 7th floor and did not hear anything, but if you were closer down this might be a problem.
The breakfast was nice but stick to the a la carte as the buffet was a bit stale both times we ate there.
Only downside was the staff were not as friendly as they could have been - was looking forward to some real Southern hospitality but felt like they were just going through the motions. Helpful enough but did not blow me away!
Tip - there are no guest laundry facilities at this hotel, but if you take your room key to the JW Marriott two blocks away, they will let you use their guest laundry for free.
