I came to NOLA for the Chargers game and decided to stay here. Its on Canal street, about a 7 min walk to Bourbon street and a 15-20 min walk to Riverwalk.
I loved the 'feel' of the hotel. For those that have been to Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, the feel is very similar but the Saint is on a small scale. There is a nice and 'happenin' bar downstairs and when we first walked in, we thought it was a great first impression. Its a small eclectic boutique hotel so please don’t expect tons of lobby sitting room (or really any sitting room for that matter) or a laid back restaurant to eat at. The staff seemed pretty scarce so beware.
The front desk person was nice but seemed like he was out of it. Still, he was very laid back so I welcomed that rather than an uptight rude person.
I liked elements of the room. I liked the view, loved the little couch/desk area, I thought the bed was comfortable and the colors very nice. The bathroom was OK but the most awkward and annoying thing was the toilet... it was not bolted down. Upon sitting on it, it would move, which unnerved but however, not enough to switch rooms (I had a view of Canal :) .
I didn’t appreciate the cleaning service. I think they could have done a better job at wiping down the countertops and desktops but overall, it was OK. However, on out 2nd day our cleaning staff hid our ' clean room please' sign as well as the request to change the sheets. Even though we personally asked that the room be clean on our way out, we came back with the room the same way we left it.
I tried ordering room service around 10pm one night and found that the kitchen had already closed. However, Daisy Dukes ( a 10 min drive, right across from the Marriott) and i Hop (1 block down on Canal) were good substitutes.
All in all a good stay for a small and new hotel. I would stay there again. Very sad about the Chargers though, they should have won that game :(
