We stayed for 4 nights as a part of business trip. Hotel is very conveniently located in French quarters right on the central Canal street and so you easily walk to charming French quarters district or in opposite direction. All main tourist attractions as well as majority of shops and malls are within walking distance. Hotel itself is separated into 2 parts – Old quarters – which is original old building and also bigger and taller new one. We were lucky enough to stay in old part, originally we were given room with awful view – to inner courtyard w/o any view or let’s say with a view of the window of opposite room in 3 meters. We stayed during ASH meeting 2013 so all hotels in New Orleans were almost fully booked, however as we arrived quite early and not all rooms were occupied yet I did ask front desk and the kindly gave us the room with great Canal street view. Hotel lobby is very nice in classic style, hotel’s restaurant is serving very good quality food (although as majority restaurants in NO) and is well known on the area. Room is on a small side by US standards, however still good enough for 2 people. Bad is comfortable, bathroom is not big but has everything you need. Amenities are standard for the 4 star hotel. Hotel has very nice open pool on the roof of one of the buildings, however the inconvenient thing is that those who stay in old building in order to reach this pool need to come down by elevator to Ground floor, pass whole lobby and take another elevator. We did have breakfasts however they were prepaid ones for Ash meeting guest not a standard hotel breakfast so can’t comment on this. All in all quite nice hotel with very good location, which we liked. However, for my next stay I would probably choose another one as there are so many good hotels in the same area.
