We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, 2015. The hotel is within walking distance to the French Quarter, so you can get there easily and then escape the noise afterwards. It's also close to the streetcar line to the Garden District. Parking options are also close by for those who are driving. One minor irritant was the slow elevator to get up to our 9th floor room, but once there everything was fine: the room was big and had nice artwork. Overall, the Q&C is a great pick!
