I've stayed all over the city in New orleans, from the CBD, to the Garden District and all over the quarter.
This hotel, though not fancy or near anything but the convention center and the Riverwalk, is a great choice for the budget conscious traveller. The two rooms I booked were spacious, well laid out and very clean. They were quiet, and the beds were comfortable. The AC worked perfectly once we figured out the various fan speeds. Reading some of the negative posts about this hotel I suppose it can be hit and miss, but our stay was wonderful. Our last visit was at the Omni in the quarter and it was nearly three times the price. As much as I love hotels like the Ritz and the Omni, they are not worth the price difference. As long as you don't mind a hotel that is not full service, this is a great place to stay in New Orleans. Just a short block and a half to a corner grocer. 2 blocks to the Riverwalk entrance and 5 or six blocks (easy walking) to the casino, and one of my favorite restaurants in the city, Drago's. I wouldn't stay here on a honeymoon, but for business or a family trip, I'd definitely stay here again.
As to the 'free breakfast', I never bothered with it so I have no comment on it's quality. But I certainly didn't book this hotel expecting the best breakfast in the city. In fact, I didn't book it expecting breakfast at all.
