My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for three days, and it's been a while since we enjoyed a hotel this much! Outstanding location in the Warehouse District, which I now realize is much better than staying in the French Quarter....less noise, rowdiness, and crowds, and more value, character and options than almost any other place we saw. It's two or three blocks to Harrah's Casino (better than we thought), Riverwalk (ditto), the World War II museum (awesome and powerful), and the streetcar lines, and a short walk to the French Quarter and all it has to offer. The hotel is a wonderful blend of converted warehouse, artsy cosmopolitan, peaceful retreat, and sophisticated funky, without the guesswork of getting a good boutique hotel.....just wonderful. The beds are great, rooms are spacious (though baths could be larger), furnishings are new, everything (public areas also) is spotless, employees courteous and plentiful. There is a genuine New orleans bar (Lucy's) directly across the street (which hops at night), and a genuine dive bar two doors down. Also, unlike many of the boutique hotels in town, it is comfortable....not pretentious. Absolutely elated, and we have high standards (Marriott Gold, Hilton Silver, etc.). I would never consider another place if in town again
