Stayed here this past 4th of July weekend for Essence Festival and they met and exceeded all of our expectations. The location is great, near the convention center, Harrah's, bourbon st and other attractions. The valet service is a great option at a good price. Even with all the activity and added crowds the festival brought every single employee we encountered was very pleasent and helpful. The room was nice, a little small but the mini fridge and microwave were an added bonus. We are already planning a return trip and will most definitely stay here again!
