This is my fifth stay at this hotel and I have stayed at many hotels in and around New Orleans over the last 16 years as I am there once a quarter on business. I love this hotel because it is clean, easy to access and some of the friendliest staff around. Since I have repeated stays, my staff was able to negotiate a good business rate that is lower than what I paid at much lower quality downtown hotels. My wife travels with me most of the time and thoroughly enjoys this hotel. I love the 10PM Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Gathering in the lobby. Hot cocoa, milk and sandwiches are available for guests.
It is an old hotel and some of the plumbing and room spacing can be challenging. I travel about 180 days a year with a visit in different cities each week (sometimes two in a week) so I am sensitive about hotel accommodations. The restaurant is sparsely occupied at night but the wait staff are attentive and friendly. The evening special can be hit or miss but I never had a significant issue with the food. I am staying there this week so this is fresh in my mind.
