The hotel is lovely. We stayed in the Tennessee Williams Suite. The bed was heaven. The decor is modern and there are several doors that open on to the courtyard, so it feels like you have a very large private area all to yourself. We utilized it to visit with other guests, sit down and relax after traipsing around the Quarter,and to sit an sip coffee in the morning. I also toured the other rooms in the main house. It feels like you've gone back in time, but with all the modern conveniences. You absolutely can not beat the location; we parked our car and walked or took a pedi cab. The staff will do anything for you,such as go pick up food for you,give you history lessons, sit and chat with you. I highly recommend it for a wonderful visit to the Quarter.
