This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It's close to the French Quarter, only a couple of blocks from Canal Street. The rooms are very quite, clean and surprising large-we had the double queen room. The breakfast buffet(we tried once because we were leaving on an early morning tour)was good and they have plenty "to-go" items(granola bars, fruit)to take with you. The weird things- lobby is on the 11th floor and elevator card doesn't give you enough time to enter card and press floor. The pool is very small but it has a nice view. The beds were comfortable, but one sagged a little on one side and the pillows were a bit on the hard side for me(but I sleep on a down pillow, so most are hard to me ;-) ). I have never stayed at a Garden Inn before...and I would say that it's not on the same caliber of your average Hilton...but it's not bad by any stretch of the imagination. I would definitely recommend this hotel and for the price it is worth it. Side Note- I found this out when we checked in...we booked with American Express which uses a third party agency(orbitz, priceline, etc.)...when you book with these agencies you are going to be placed in a smoking room most likely(because those are the rooms that do not fill as quickly)...we were originally assigned a smoking room, but when we arrived with a child they automatically changed our room...because they had availability. When you book through Hilton's website your reservation takes priority, so check and make sure that you are getting the best price with those agencies and make sure you strongly request a non-smoking room.
