This beautiful hotel is in the heart of the French Quarter and a welcome respite from the wildness of Bourbon Street. My room was beautiful with modern conveniences, but strangely lacking a coffee maker. This felt unwelcoming, forcing me to take advantage of the expense of room service on top of a very expensive room. This, however was my only complaint. I stayed in the hotel to attend a wedding on site, and the event was absolute perfection from the wedding in the courtyard to the marvelous food at the reception, every detail was first rate. The staff of the hotel was attentive, cheerful and helpful.
