After reading the reviews (and, more impressive, the responses from the manager), I decided to give this hotel a try for our 5 night stay in New Orleans. I cannot SAY enough good about the experience.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The area was quiet and safe. Valet parking attendants were friendly and my automobile was parked within sight of them at all times. I was able to access my car whenever it was necessary without all the hassle of having it brought out by the valet. I could just tell them I was accessing my car and walk to it. Very convenient.
The streetcar stops in the medium in front of the hotel. It took about 10 minutes to ride to/from the French Quarter on the Garden District line.
Conveniently located a short walk down the street is a Walgreens. And, if you choose to forego the free breakfast at the hotel in favor of a delicious home-cooked breakfast, the Trolley Car Restaurant across the street was spotless and delicious, with great coffee.
Adjoining the hotel is a Cheesecake restaurant that I can't say enough good about. Delicious food and ENORMOUS portions.
