Tha Arts District is a great location, not far from busy French Quarter but quiet and elegant, with loads OF beautifully renovated warehouses around and a choice of prime restaurants. The hotel itself is a 4-storey brick building, quite good-looking from the outside. We were there at the Jazz Fest period, so did not get the largest choice in rooms. Being noise-sensitive we did not choose a room on street because of the music bars opposite. We preferred an exec double queen over a patio, the counterpart being a gloomy atmosphere with little light and a poor view. The room deco is somewhat depressing and tired with terrible humidity smell and noisy air con. Update needed. We liked the small gym (though no view...) and the top-floor pool. There is an exec lounge for breakfast, though the breakfast at downstairs René Bistrot is far more pleasant and tasty (and charged extra). The lobby offers an interesting effort in artsy style, unfortunately balanced by approximative maintenance (not so clean windows and floor), poor flowers at entrance and terrible door service (unattentive, indifferent). Very good reception, with special mention for Nico Lambert, who delivered an outstanding service with great competence and kindness. Quite clearly a good hotel that has to go the extra mile (and it can) to become great.
