My husband and I, a single friend and two other couples traveled to N.O. for the 4th of July weekend. This was the first time for all of us.
Their website pictures of the hotel are true to what you'll see. I found the staff very friendly and accomodating. When you exit from the side of the hotel, you're stepping onto Bourbon Street. However, the hotel is located towards the beginning of Bourbon Street and not in the smack middle. I find that this was the best of both worlds. We can step into the action but retrieve when we were done and not have the loud action disturb us. In the front of the hotel, across the street, there is a CVS in case you need to purchase those type of items. Without crossing the street, you have several places to grab a bite. We also walked to Harrah's and visited their casino.
The rooms were standard. We stayed in a double queen bed room. We don't normally stay in the room except for sleeping and showering and we're out and about. Therefore, the room served its purpose. I felt it was good and comfortable. The bed & the pillows were a little hard but ok overall. Truth is we were so tired from all the walking that we slept like babies. I didn't visit the pool nor the exercise room so I can't review that.
Overall, I was happy with my stay and would stay here again. I would also recommend it.
