I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights for a wedding, which happened to be the same weekend as French Quarter Festival. We stayed in a spacious, deluxe king. Some of the amenities of the room included a dresser with a flat screen TV, a couch with another flat screen TV within an entertainment center, a business desk with leather chair, and a bed bench. The bathroom had nice granite counter tops and had both a bathtub and stand up shower with a very powerful shower head! Overall, the room provided comfort with casual luxury!
The location of the hotel is awesome! It is near the Riverwalk and right next door to Harrah's Casino. The walk to the French Quarter is approximately 15 minutes.
The cons of the hotel would be the steep price of parking at $39/overnight. If you plan driving to New Orleans, you can save some money by parking in other lots for half the price so do some research before your trip. Also, I had a few issues with check-in, but very minor i.e. room keys didn't work. The staff resolved the issues quickly.
If you stay at this hotel, make sure to visit the bar, The Swizzle Stick. The Bloody Mary's are top notch and the bar food is quite delicious. I tried the gumbo, flash-fried oysters and a baby spinach salad. Oh man that salad I'm craving right now so good a must try!
Overall, had a wonderful stay and would pick this establishment again!
