The only good thing about this hotel was it's staff! The room was tiny, our view was of a parking garage, the bed was uncomfortable, no refrigirator, the one cup coffee pot was sitting in the bathroom floor when we arrived, room service charged two gratuitys on one check, the final bill had a parking charge when we flew in and had no rental car or visiting guests that used the parking (when this was brought to their attention they acted as if we were scamming them) and the bathroom toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The young men that hailed taxis for us all weekend were some of the hardest working young men we have ever seen and very friendly and polite.
This hotel has a great location but there are several others in the same area that look better kept.
One other thing I might add, I love the French Market but don't want it in my hotel...all weekend there were tables out in the lobby with French Market quality items being sold in the lobby...really?
I am not one to stay in a hotel while in NOLA, normally you will find me in a rental on Frenchmen St. or down around the Dauphine St. area but since this was a short two night trip I decided to choose a hotel with a good location away from where I normally stay....wrong choice! I will never come to NOLA again and stay in a hotel....local rentals, condos, apartments, etc. are the only way to go.
