If you are tired of paying for poor service, poor food, poor ambiance and a smoke filled environment, this may be the hotel for you. It is a bit more pricy, but "you get what you pay for."
The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.
We typically avoid valet parking, but this was exceptional. No dings or scratches, but prompt service, for $45 per day - "you get what you pay for."
Amenities come with your Club Level guest room in the Club Lounge; 4 hour Continental Breakfast,10 hour Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks, 2 1/2 hour Afternoon Tea and 4 hour Cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres. The thing is, as simple as these sound, the truth is that the hotel puts out a spread with each except for the 10 hour drinks. All are complementary and come w/ the price of the room. And the view of the river from this 22 nd floor is spectacular.
All food is gourmet: chocolate covered strawberries, weekend egg omelets, to order, pastries, cereals, juices, great brewed coffee, teas, crayfish added to omelets and other dishes, too many to mention. The point is we purchased only one meal the whole time we were in New Orleans. A big savings. Now, how much did the room cost?
The room: * individual room temperature control on easy to operate thermostat, * comfortable beds, * great shower w/ "rain" shower head, * two large flat screen TV's, one in the BR and one in the LR, * ladies makeup counter w/ sink, separate from the bath, * entry area w/ mini bar.
The walls are constructed for quiet and privacy. We heard no neighbors. This place is the best. And the four elevators are quick, no slow pokes.
ONE caution: The minibar is automatic. If you remove anything for inspection, it automatically charges to your room. Snacks, included.
Your privacy is respected. The "DND" door sign eliminated all hotel intrusions.
If I ever return to New Orleans, this is the only hotel I will consider. I was dreading the trip until this experience changed my mind completely.
