We stayed here for 3 nights in April of 2010. I have stayed in probably 25 different hotels/bed and breakfasts in New Orleans, but this was my first time at the HSM. It is my new favorite New Orleans hotel.
The location simply cannot be beat, just 1/2 block off of Bourbon, a safe and easy walk even for 'seniors' like my husband and I (ages 61/58). There is a convenience store right by the hotel and that was handy for picking up soda/candy, etc.
Reception staff was very friendly and helpful.
Our room was a 3rd floor balcony room that overlooked the pool and courtyard area. The room was very spacious and clean. Good tv and plenty of storage/closet area. Bathroom was typical size and very clean and well supplied. The balcony was small but it was fun to stand on it and watch the pool area. We had a king bed (huge!) that was very comfortable. Our room was down a little hallway next to a supply room and I was worried that we would hear the staff getting things out of there, but we never heard a thing, no noise issues at all.
We did not eat the continental breakfast because we prefer to eat at the restaurants New Orleans has to offer, but we did walk down to that area and it look cute.
When taking everything into consideration - location, size of room, comfort of bed, cleanliness, etc., the HSM is my new favorite hotel in New Orleans. We will definitely be staying here again.
