I'll start by saying we went during the start of the holiday time-a time when there are a ton of industry events, Christmas parties etc. The hotel was hopping night and day-to the point you had to navigate through the bar to avoid the gridlock in the lobby. The doormen are wonderful. George, I think, helped me find a private car driver who I had hired before-with 3C transportation. They are always helpful on directions.
We had a corner room last year which was probably twice as big as this year- room 647. The bathrooms are neatly appointed but I felt like I was dressing in a airplane bathroom- very little counterspace and I kept dropping stuff in the bathtub or toilet ! Close the lid dummy. The shower/tub is roomy but I guess there's not much you can do about this. The bed was super comfy and the linens are very soft. I didn't eat there but the restaurant was always packed. I felt safe. If you forget anything, go next door to Walgreen's but it does not stay open 24 hours. The hotel is close to everything, really. Walk to Bourbon, or south to Harrah's (stay on main streets) or the warehouse district or even Jackson square- a bit longer but they have those surreys (sp?) now. DON'T WEAR NICE HEELS because the streets are old and worn. I dressed formal, wore boots to walk to the event and changed into heels at the place ! We love this hotel because it's so familiar to us now.
