I stayed here for a few days over Southern Decadence and like the other party goers I was lucky to get here at all with the airport only opening on the Friday morning after the hurricane, just a couple of hours before my flight landed.
As for the htoel it is in central New Orleans by Bourbon Street, party central, so I was pleantly surpirsed that my 6th floor room at the back of the hotel had no street noise at all. However I had a room 6615 that had a connecting door to the next room. I could hear the occupants whole conversations as if they were in the same room there was so little sound proofing, This proved especially annoying when the young lads were having parties between 3am and and 5am each night. I don't blame them, this is New Orleans, but I do think the hotel should do something to decrease sound leakage, this started to ruin my stay knowing I would be awake a good portion of the night.
I thought it was a nice hotel overall, the rooms are very large and despite showing some wear in the carpets it is very comfortable. I saw the rooms at the Marriott next door and they were surpisingly so much smaller and less confortable. I did see a large cockroach on the wall by the front desk as I checked out but I didn't see any inside the rooms, the lady on reception jumped a mile when I pointed it out so its obviously not a regular problem, I guess in this hot and steamy climate it is hard to keep the occasional roach out. It was only the sound problem that meant that for me this wasn't a 4 out of 5.
