I stayed here during Mardi Gras. The hotel was so convenient to the parade routes and many of the cities most celebrated restaurants (Court of Two Sisters, Galatoires, Antoines, to name a few). The rooftop pool is beautiful and there is an exquisite view of the city. In terms of the actual hotel, you will never find a more comfortable bed in a hotel. Although the rooms tend to be on the small side, you will most likely not be spending tons of time in your room since there is so much to do in the city, and for the most part, you can walk just about anywhere. I look forward to coing back. I think it is one of the best hotels in the city.
