As a frequent visitor to NOLA, this is one of several places we've stayed. However, this is the one the gets most of our repeat business. As others have mentioned, the location is ideal for the typical holiday traveler who wants to walk around the French Quarter. This is a full service hotel with a nice bar, adjacent restaurant, business and exercise amenities, etc. Rooms are what you would expect in a very good hotel. Beds are comfortable and the rooms modern and clean.
A nice touch: the staff provides ear plugs. See, you have to be realistic if you visit stay in the French Quarter. Regardless of where you stay, you run the risk of having immature/drunk/loud guests in the next room. Not the hotel's fault; just the way it is. The hotel does try hard to keep guests happy and problems at a minimum.
Remember, free parking is unheard of at hotels in this area. There are a few B&Bs that offer that, if that's essential for you. This hotel uses an off-site surface lot, serviced by a contracted valet service. We've never had a problem with it, and the prices are in line with what one would expect.
