I was surprised by this hotel. Our room was on the 27th floor with a good view of the city but not on the river side. We could see all the way to Lake Ponchartrain and the city lights were nice but we heard every siren on Canal Street and in the Quarter, and there were a few! Our room was just plain-we had a King room. At the price we paid we were surprised there was not even a refrigerator in the room. You do have to pay for internet service, The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows, the housekeeping was very good. The elevator system is really something and takes a little getting used to. You enter your room number when you walk up to the elevators and the screen tells you what elevator you will be taking to your floor. I think this probably avoids overcrowded elevators. This is a very busy hotel and we were there during a Saints football weekend but never had a crowded elevator or had to wait very long for one. Could be confusing after a long night on Bourbon Street after several cocktails! One thing I really did like was that there is always fresh ice water right outside the elevator booths, slightly flavored with all the fruit in the dispenser. The staff was friendly. We ordered room service dessert one night and received apple pie instead of chocolate cake but they told us to keep the pie and they very quickly brought up the cake. Both were good. The lobby was extremely busy almost all the time we were there-obviously a convention/business meeting hotel. You won't get out of the bar for less than $20 for two drinks. The only person at this hotel that was less than pleasant was one of the bartenders who looked at me like I had two heads when I asked if there was a warm, coffe drink she could recommend since it was a cool night. She said there were lots of things to mix with coffee. Honestly, that was her only response. No suggestions, just that. She was a little overly officious and probably tired and it showed.
