Just completed a recent 7 day stay at this hotel, and let me tell you it is awesome! Clean and refreshing, this is a complete 180 degrees from Burbon St which it is located. I will go through the hotel:
ROOMS: My room was not what I had envisioned, but rather a bit dated room that basically was a standard hotel room. King size bed, Flat Screen TV, three dressers/nightstands and a table with two chairs. It also had a larger stuffed chair. It has a MINI Bar in the cupboard, that you can use as a pay as you go system and is filled daily. Contains all a kinds of hard and soft drinks. My room was clean, and it was VERY QUIET. I had asked for the quietest room they had due to being in town on business. And that is what I got. It was on the 2nd floor, which is the smoking floor. I do not smoke, but I figured if I wanted quiet, I could sacrifice. It didn’t really smell like smoke to me either, but more like incense was burned in the room. The bathroom is standard, but the pluming is a bit loud. Large closet. NO COFFIE MAKER. There are bigger and nicer rooms, but for a higher cost.
HOTEL: Very clean. Lots of pretty flowers. You can’t tell that you are inches from Burbon St. Restaurants are very good, both Desire, and Revolution. DJ’s Coffee is a must in the morning. That is in the lobby. Parking was 36 bucks a day, but Valet is included so just tip the boys some cash and they take care of your car in a city where you can never find parking. Workout room was small and out of date. Needs to be updated. Jazz Club in the lobby was awesome. Great music/musicians.
POOL: Pool area is very nice and has a bar. It is on the third floor. It is outside.
All in all it was a nice hotel and in a great location. Right off of Burbon St. Walk out, and you are in the party. Walk in and you are in a nice quiet hotel. I recommend this hotel to anyone coming to New Orleans and the French Quarter.
