The hotel was beautiful, old New Orleans but with modern conveniences. The front desk lady was wonderful when we arrived late (@1:00 a.m.) and when we checked out early (@4:15 a.m.) during our stay. The room was clean, the bathroom was small but clean, and had a blow dryer. The bed was very comfortable, but the feather pillows were too soft for me. I made the mistake of requesting a Bourbon St. facing room, thinking it would be fun. It's nice hearing the music drift up, but not so much when the drunken masses on the street are asking girls to "show me your ...." and being otherwise very loud. I would get a courtyard or side street room next time. One other negative (not the hotel's fault) was the roudy, incosiderate guests that think that they are still on Bourbon Street when they are in the corridors, so just be prepared for that. There was a coffee shop and a club in the hotel, so those conveniences were nice.
