We stayed at the hotel over the long Labor Day weekend, right after Isaac. We were impressed that the hotel and staff were at full speed, with nothing seeming off due to the hurricane. We had asked the general manager for a room on an upper/quiet floor and were put on the 6th floor facing an old building and a parking garage. It was fairly quiet, save the guests' shouting and talking at the top of their voices at wee hours of the morning. The room had a very odd set up (positioning of furnishings) and a small leak over the credenza that the TV was on. The lock on the door needed new batteries (you really had to JAM the card in several times to get a read) and the TV remote also had dying batteries (...we did ask for a replacement, but never got fresh ones). The beds were comfortable after you climbed up into them (they are REALLY tall to get in and out of). The bathroom was generally clean, but there were some stains on the fabric shower curtain and in the grout surrounding the tub. The lighting was generally bad in the room and the safe was ridiculously small and hard to reach (on the wall in the closet). The concierge was fantastic and friendly, even though he did suggest a restaurant in the Quarter that had been closed for quiet some time. You cannot beat the location. However, paying for wifi seems a bit ridiculous as there are some bars on Bourbon that give you access with the purchase of a drink...would be nice if it came with the purchase of the room!
