We booked for the Essence Festival at this location and decided to stay the entire week. We had a studio which tightly accommodated 4 adults. There was a king size bed, queen sleeper sofa, and partial kitchen. The kitchen included a two burner stove, mini refrigerator and microwave. The kitchen was stocked with the basics and sufficient. The room includes an upgraded television with cable. For the most part, the room was clean and well-maintained. We had an abundance of towels for 4 and housekeeping checked on us at least 3 times during the week. We never saw any others staying at the hotel on our way in or out the entire time we stayed. We were on the 4th floor overlooking the intersection of Canal Street and University Place. It was a bit difficult to find because the place has no signs. It is located right next door to Roosevelt Hotel across the street from Voodoo Mart right before crossing Canal (if you come up west along University Place Street). We eventually had to just get out of the car and walk along because the GPS kept saying it was nearby. We happened to pass a very indistinct door and catch a person's attention inside who informed us this was the place. Check in was quick and efficient. The front desk helped out with places to eat, identified what was in walking distance, etc. For the most part, we didn't need our car and chose to park in a garage. Since it was festival time, the garages were around $25 a day and went down to $15 afterwards. We were within walking distance of Bourbon Street, WWII museum, art galleries, Superdome, Audobon Zoo, and everything else in the French Quarter. There is a trolly that runs directly along Canal and in front of the hotel that I was told only cost a few dollars. The area has quite a mix of people walking (locals, panhandlers, etc.) about so although there were times I walked alone to nearby places I always felt more comfortable walking with others. Overall, the place was nice and I would stay again if given the opportunity. This is quite simply a place to lay your head and nothing else.
