My wife and I booked this room for our trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We thought we were very lucky to get a room here since we waited longer than we should have....we didn't realize just how lucky till we arrived. The location is FANTASTIC. It's located at the edge of the French Quarter, on Bourbon and Canal Streets, two of the highlights of New Orleans. If you're going for Mardi Gras (next year), many of the parades pass directly in front of the hotel and you can watch the parade from the street level or on the hotel's balcony (on one night the balcony was closed for a private party attended by Melissa Leo and other cast members of the show "Treme").
I was very happy with the check-in process, especially when I noticed they gave us a room in the 12th-floor Quiet Zone as I requested when I reserved the room online (a lot of hotels don't pay much attention to those requests). This is to avoid being kept up all night by the sounds of Bourbon St. The room was very nice. The biggest thing I noticed that was missing was a minibar but there was a vending machine and ice machine down the corridor and staff never stopped us from bringing drinks/food up to the room. Btw, room service food was delicious. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable.
There was a small problem with housekeeping, but it was resolved by the generous intervention of other housekeeping staff. An annoying thing I noticed, and I saw that another contributor noticed the same, is that you pay $10 for 1 day wifi service but you're only given 23 hours!
