We just returned from a 5-day trip to Nola and we stayed at this very stylish boutique hotel, well situated atwalking distance from the French Quarter and other major tourist sites.
We had the terrace King room on the penthouse level and we couldn't ask for a better room. It is actually more a suite than a regular room, having a separate livingroom and a powder room. The immense corner terrace is a definite plus, specially during the warmer months, and gives you nice views of the Central Business District. The decor is minimalist and monochromatic but warm at the same time. The bed is very comfortable with a variety of pillows. The bathroom is huge with a large shower and cool bath tub and well equipped with Aveda amenities but lacks counter space which is a little annoying considering the size of the room. Hotel designers should consider client comfort before looks and trends!
Very limited room service, if any, as there is no restaurant in the hotel. More so, the phones were out of service because of major phone system restructuring that was not mentioned at check-in.
Front desk staff was, in general, very nice, accomodating and informative. Housekeeping needs to work on the schedule for room cleaning. On 2 consecutive days, room was not done by 2pm and we had to request room cleaning. The maintenance team also should also pay more attention to the upkeeping of the place as you have a feeling that it is a little run down.
The trendy Loa bar is very cool and the drink menu lists original and unusual "potations'' that are mixed with professional care by a very knowlegeable bartender.
I would definitely visit again this hotel and request the same room!
