We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a tour of the South. This was the perfect location for visiting the French Quarter. The room was of a reasonable size and very clean. We had a couple of tours booked and the meet up place for grey line was a ten minute walk away. The Bombay club (attached to the hotel) had fabulous cocktails and there are many fantastic restaurants nearby-we walked to Arnaud's and Oceana.
With hindsight I would have booked a hotel with an outdoor bar or rooftop as the weather was glorious and it would have been nice to relax by a pool or have some quiet time but that's not the hotel's fault. That said, front desk weren't helpful, didn't offer us a map or give us any dining suggestions and nobody helped us with our many bags which was disappointing.
