for the amount of money we spent ($300/night after taxes + $26/night for parking) we expected more. The rooms were small, so sparsely furnished- just the bed and a small table with 2 plastic chairs, bathroom in a tight space. The shower was amazing though. I think they are def going for a modern look with everything in white and bare walls but I expected this to have more local flare and culture. The staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was continental- muffins, croissants, juice tea, yoghurt etc. very good location. Just 10 min walk to french quarter and all the jazz/blues clubs like snug harbour and spotted cat. One of the staff members gave us an excellent recommendation for a brunch place that was close by- Horns. Delicious food. So if you are looking for something with more new orleans/french feel this is not your place but it was def clean and in a good location. I just don't think this is a place were you feel like you spoilt yourself on an expensive hotel.
