On Bourbon Street, directly behind Jackson Square, this place definitely has location. And it's pretty. And the staff was nice. Room had a strange glass wall that only halfway separated the shower from the bathroom giving a nice overspray effect to the tile floor. Combined with a shower head that couldn't angle up (I'm 6'2", not *that* tall) and it was a lacking shower experience.
But the crowning note to this stay was the inability of the night staff to keep the hallways peaceful. Yes, I know it's NOLA and on Bourbon Street, but for the mega-clams this place charged, there should have been a imposing gentleman in a suit reminding guest that this was a hotel, not a strip club. Two nights in a row there were exceedingly loud hallway talkers/shouters. And not just at 3 a.m., but again at 4, 5, and 6! And as the noisemakers were traipsing towards the elevators, I'd assume they were visitors and not hotel guests.
Perhaps it was the tile floors, perhaps the large gap under the door, or even the Essence Music Festival attracted crowd, but I'm a *very* deep sleeper and to wake me takes a full-on brass band. This place provided that two nights in a row.
