“Beautiful Historic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

5 star service throughout. Rooms are a bit small but designed well and decorated nicely. If at all possible, find somewhere else to park as the parking price is outrageous - but parking is a rare commodity in the French Quarter - so I wouldn't say it's a ripoff by any means. The roof top pool is fantastic - drinks were yummy and reasonably priced for a hotel. The hotel is in a great location - walking distance to all the French Quarter and Canal street attractions.

The hotel was beautiful and comfortable, the staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, and the meeting rooms were comfortable with beautiful views. I loved the jazz band at The Carousel on Thurday evening, and the food at Criollo was excellent (try the turtle soup!) Very easy walk to Bourbon Street, and be sure to explore all the great little shops and boutiques in the vicinity.

Room Tip: I hear the 14th floor is haunted, and some of my fellow business travellers had some paranormal expe...

Carousel Bar & Lounge was a fun change of pace from Bourbon street noise and mess. Great bar with bartenders who can make a drink right. Time passes quickly at the carousel bar. go visit.Standard dress code for a nice hotel.

This hotel draws you back into the time of "Grand Hotels' of writers, and starlets, and evening rendezvous over great drinks in a perfect location - with food to live for and the murmuring undertones of New Orleans jazz it is the ultimate destination in the French Quarter. The pool side bar on the roof in the hazy, humid heat of a Lousiana August make you remember Old Havana - with Hemingway telling fishing stories over a Scotch and cigar - even though you've never been there.

The hotel staff are VERY polite, professional, helpful, and always have a smile on their face! The restaurant (Criollo) staff are the Best in the business. They truly go out of their way to make sure you have the best dining experience possible. The food is out of this world amazing. I suggest the filet or the lamb. Both will make you melt the moment they touch your tongue! Ask for James for a server!

Staff was perfect. Room was very nice. Bar was vibrant and very classic. Pool was a little bit crowded but very very nice break from the hot hot summer day. Valet was much more efficient than a lot of hotels in New Orleans. It is really perfect location in the quarter close enough to all the activity but quiet in the room.

This hotel was in a great area not far from Canal and Bourbon, but far enough away to have some peace. The service was great from front desk, door men to concierge. The maintenance was superb. The rooms were on the smaller side, but we expected it from an older hotel.
