I traveled to New Orleands with my husband to attend a friend's destination wedding in Oct 2013. The hotel is located accross the street from the convention center, about a 20-30 minute walk from the French Quarter ($7 cab ride) and a 10 minute walk from the Trolley. Our room was spacious, although they have a limited number of king sized bedrooms so we ended up with two queens (not an issue). Everything was clean, drawer and closet space was more than enough - we were happy with our accomodations.
Our room was on the 4th floor and overlooked the breakfast area (located on the 3rd floor). It became quite noisy the second breakfast service started and we could hear everything in our room, so that was a bit of an annoyance since we were on vacation and were hoping to sleep in a bit. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of - ask for rooms on higher floors if you're concerned about this. I think this hotel is a bit overpriced, though the free breakfast and internet was nice. The service at the front desk was pretty good, sometimes we had grouchy front desk workers but the door guys were awesome! There is a mini mart and starbucks just two blocks down from the hotel which was saving grace. Everything in New Orleans is expensive so we stocked up on our own water, snacks, etc once we got there. Beware that they add on an occupancy tax in New Orleans of $20/day! Overall, it was a good stay and we left very happy.
