Booked last minute and were lucky enough to get a room over the weekend (stayed 3 nights). Valeted the car which was a bit pricey at 29 plus tax (not many other convenient options so was glad I used the service). Was greeted at the front counter by Machiel who was very helpful. Went straight to our room where the wooden floor was a little dirty (the malting rug didn't help). Other than that the room was great which had a king bed, fridge, and large shower among other things. Each time we would head out for sightseeing, Machiel always seemed to be at the front desk. Given she was a local we asked lots of questions about the best places to eat, NOLA history, and local ghost stories which her responses were extremely helpful. The two real winners for the hotel are the location (very close to the French Quarter without the noise), and the knowledge of the staff (particularly Machiel). Great place to stay.
