This old school style hotel is a real charming place with great service and a good location.
The rooms are smaller than newer hotels, but were still comfortable and clean. The whole style of the hotel is really well done and their tradition of serving a complimentary late night snack(10pm) of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with milk and hot chocolate is a fun touch.
The staff was friendly and the concierge was very helpful. Everyone we encountered was nice and wanted to make sure we were having a comfortable stay.
There is a rooftop pool, 9th floor, which gets direct sunlight from around 9/10am to about 7pm. This is great because you don’t have to worry about that pesky shade caused from building shadows that often occur at downtown hotel pools. There is a hot tub as well and the whole area is clean open until 1am.
Their breakfast buffet has a nice spread and they do a nice job with the omelet station.
Location is 3 blocks from the French quarter and a short taxi or bus ride from the garden district. Very convenient and safe. We did not need a rental car.
Overall this was a really great hotel and we will be staying here for sure on our next trip to New Orleans.
