Stayed here during the last week of June. Booked kinda last minute through orbitz. Was a bit skeptical due to some of the reviews on here. But i was in for a pleasant suprise. It is one of the better hotels ive visited during my travels. No complaints about the room whatsoever. It was small but clean & tidy. The hotel also is in a location, quick walking distance from all the action but still on a safe quiet block. It is right around the corner from the French Quarter;the party strip of Bourbon st., the classy art galleries of Royal st, and a streetcar tram which will bring you to the outskirts of the city. The staff seemed a bit frigid at times but that was not my main concern concern. Its a good hotel. I'd suggest it to anyone visiting NOLA, especially first-timers. And most importantly, a free coffee machine too!!!
