Had an outstanding stay the week of June 30th. The hotel has been very nicely remodeled with a modern style. The high ceilings in the rooms make them feel so large. The pool is small but refreshing and never crowded. Upon the advice of previous reviewers we took an interior room and really enjoyed the quiet and a nice area to sit and drink coffee in the morning. Each room has it's own refrigerator so we were sure to stock up with plenty of drinks and libations. Canal Street is one block away so there are plenty of stores to stock your room if you want. We ate breakfast at the lobby café. It was very good. Also ate at Redfish in the hotel and it was a very good meal. There is a Krystal's across the street and I really enjoyed getting a nice country breakfast there each morning. Also, the trolley picks up right out on Canal Street so you are very close for sightseeing. As a matter of fact this hotel is perfectly situated to enjoy Bourbon Street, The French Quarter, the trolley and easy access to New Orleans. Finally, the staff are very accommodating at this hotel. Great service so don't hesitate to ask for their help.
