This place is a bit on the tough side. I went down to New Orleans with a bunch of friends for a weekend in the Quarter. For our trip the hotel was okay. In fact the guy who worked the front desk loaded us up with Mardi Gras beads when we were heading out for the night. Location was okay, close to the Quarter, but also on the edge of an area that looked a bit scary. I definetly wouldn't recommend this hotel to everybody. Unless you're looking for a simple hotel to sleep off the night before, I would stay away.
