We stayed here in December, and again, it is just so comfortable.
I noticed that in my last review I stated that the rooms had very "NO decor "-- and then in rereading it, realized that not everyone will understand that "NO" means New Orleans, and not "none".
The rooms are large, comfortable and each one has a different New Orleans theme.
Another update: there was a small shower in one of the bathrooms that has now been replaced with a fabulous European style shower.
Ray and Kim will give you excellent dining recommendations - and will steer you away from some that you may have read are wonderful -- but in actuality are not. One of our best meals on this trip was in a little upstairs restaurant on Frenchman Street. Had we not been sent there, no way would we have even considered opening the door.
