I really wanted to like this hotel, but there was just too much noise. You can't hear anything going on from Bourbon street, but you can hear everything coming off of Bourbon street. On the weekends it's yelling drunks and those people who like to ride around and blast their music and honk their horns for fun. During the week there's the early morning delivery trucks and street cleaners. Some of the rooms probably don't get any outside noise. All of the ones that are right off of St Peter Street are probably just as noisy though.
The hotel itself is nice and in close walking distance to a lot of things. The staff was really friendly and accomodating. The rooms seemed pretty clean. I think our room smelled so strongly of cleaner since they were trying to mask the scent of cigarette smoke. I didn't really notice this until we got home and I had to was ALL of our clothes since they all smelled like smoke, even the ones we didn't wear. We didn't spend much time in smoky areas either, so we figure it had to be the room. The water pressure isn't that great either. The beds were okay but the pillows were too poofy.
I really wanted to like this hotel, but I don't think we will be staying here again.
