As others have noted, the location is perfect, the rooms are smallish but comfortable, the service is polite and attentive. For breakfast, skip the hotel and walk one block to the right on Royal to the Cafe Beignet, which lives up to its name far more than the famous Cafe du Monde. Be warned that the hotel's Carousel Bar is mobbed at night, noisy, and (unless you're seated at the bar) often has terrible service, as well as the worst Pisco Sour my wife (a native Peruvian) has ever tasted.
