just returned from a 4 night stay in April traveling with another couple. Really beautiful hotel - funky & elegant elements of exposed brick, graphic wallpaper, subway titled bathrooms, really lovely. Two separate buildings across a small street from one another, one with lobby/bar/dining/check in on the main floor, the other sort of reading room/library/rec room (very cute).
Small stuff: The walk in showers are beautiful but the shower heads are not adjustable, you can't direct the water down. It ends up ricocheting off you onto the bathroom floor. No real closet in one room. Our room had sort of a cubby (open shelving and a rod) with a velvet curtain to pull in front of it which I though was perfect. The second room had an exposed sort of clothes tower leaving you to stare at your clothes. There were several small fixes that needed to be performed inside our friends room. All repairs performed quickly by a friendly staff. First both bulbs were out in the one & only overhead light. Next in one of the bed side reading lights. Next the faucet handle practically came off in their hands. Shouldn't housekeeping have noticed?
We had an issue with our room's thermostat. No matter what we did we could not increase the temperature. We had to resort to turning the air off completely waiting for the room to warm up then turn it back on when we got hot.
Good Stuff: Ours rooms we perfectly suited for 2 couples traveling together. We didn't request it but the hotel gave us rooms side by side. There was sort of an anti room space & another door allowing us to keep the doors to our rooms opened (and possibly helping keep the noise down to the other guests). If you're thinking of staying here for that purpose I'd recommend bringing a door stop to wedge your door open since there's no easy way).
The hotel is in a great location for exploring. It's on the border between the French quarter & the Warehouse District which is a great change of pace after the rowdiness & tourist shops of Bourbon Street. We wished we had explored more.
A few blocks up & over from the Hotel is a great supermarket: Rouse's. Great beer selection to stock up your mini fridge.
The hotel has a small bar/lounge which always seemed to have people in it. We never had the chance to try it but our friends were there for happy hour. They had a great Margarita Pizza.
Upon check out, allow enough time to check your bill (we were rushed - catching an early flight). When we got home we realized we had been charged with an erroneous bar bill for $67. We assume our friends tab accidentally got charged to our room but then discovered they had pay cash for both their bills. We called the hotel & they checked discovering it was a mistake.
