After booking a 3 night stay for ourselves and 4 other people in 3 separate rooms some people began questioning our choice of hotel. I started looking at online reviews and was horrified. There were stories of rats and filth. I told the other people in our party that if it was terrible we would find other accommodations and I would foot the bill. When we checked in we were delighted to see a nice lobby staffed by Troy. Well groomed, congenial, appropriately dressed in a 3 piece suite, calm and efficient under stressful conditions as many people were checking in and out at the same time, answering the phone and arranging tours and transportation for groups without breaking a sweat. Being cautions because of the previous reviews I asked to see the rooms we had reserved. He patiently took us to the suites to see for ourselves. They were all spacious, clean and well appointed. Do not get me wrong. This is not the four seasons but it is an exceptional value. The courtyards are a relaxing place with tropical plants and inviting pools. The ambiance is perfect for the French Quarter although I would have liked more information about the history of the original buildings and slave quarters. The common areas are well maintained and clean and a perfect place to gather for breakfast or after dinner. The breakfast is as described. They could be more honest about the parking but coming from Philadelphia, I did not find the daily rate for valet parking exorbitant. This hotel is in an excellent location. We felt safe at all times. There are convenience stores across the street that sell anything you might need including wine and beer at reasonable prices. My wife, who wears a brace on one leg was able to walk to everything we wanted to see and to all of the best restaurants with no trouble. If we return we would gladly stay there again and we are demanding consumers.
spend a few more dollars and get a suite
