Just back from an extended weekend in New Orleans. A shout out to the room service staff and kitchen. The breakfast we ordered was delicious and the staff arrived on time and were extremely friendly and attentive. Kudos to this group.
Now for the not so great...Was not overly impressed with the quality of the rooms - the rooms at The Provencial were equally nice and half the price, but you are paying for location and that part was great. The location was right on Bourbon Street and very convenient for walking to everything you would want in the French Quarter.
That being said...Even a few weeks before Mardi Gras, this hotel was very noisy - motorcyles parked directly under our room who revved motors and set off car alarms between 6-7 a.m. every morning and yet we received a visit from the security officer (2 people couple) at 2 a.m. after we had just arrived an hour earlier because next door guests complained our tv was too loud. Really? The street noise alone was enough to drown out any tv noise, but maybe the tv was keeping them up.
Overall, for the price, I probably would not stay here again. The front staff was not overly friendly or helpful. The rooms were average. I've stayed at resorts for the same price that blew this hotel away. I think I was expecting something more from this hotel.
