We stayed here for three nights in January of 2013. The room was small but well appointed, unfortunately, it was overlooking Bourbon St. and the noise was incredible, till 5 in the morning! The thumping bass from the bar across the street was something you could actually feel. It was fun to be able to view the street from the room but again, unless you drink heavily, medicate to the hilt or are just a flat out sound sleeper request a room off the main drag. We switched rooms the second night and the young woman at registration was helpful. However the next room must have been near some type of loading/unloading station as there was a very loud thumping noise (no, it was not the neighbors!) throughout the night. Still, much less noise than the rooms overlooking Bourbon St. The second room had fixtures in the bathroom which were falling apart and I had two incredibly large spiders in the room which unnerved my wife and I. The morning of leaving the woman at the front desk seemed annoyed we were there and was quite rude. The bellman, however, was very helpful. Overall, if you want to be on Bourbon St. it is right in the thick of it. Which, depending on your wishes, is either good or bad!
