We were here for a convention, so we got a great group rate (about $100/night). The hotel is tastefully decorated, rooms were clean, nicely decorated, and huge, with two tv's, desk and couch/sitting area. The bathrooms had a separate tub and shower. It is situated in the business district, walking distance from Canal street and the French quarter. The employees were extremely nice and helpful. We never at at the hotel, so I can't rate the restaurant. Mother's restaurant is one block away, so I recommend it for a biscuit and coffee!! Glad we stayed here.
