I'm not really sure how to rate this hotel. I rarely stay at historic hotels, so people who do are probably looking for different things. No pool, limited amenities. But cool architecture, with exposed brick in the lobby and even the back wall of the hotel room. On the negative side, our room had just one very small window that looked out into a small square shaft. Those really cool, retro, wide plank wood floors look awesome, until you realize they run right under the wall into the next room and carry vibrations and thus noise, with them. If someone in the next room drops a quarter, you'll stoop to look for it. In the middle of the night, my wife literally thought someone was in our room! That first night, the people next door came in at about 3 a.m. with a group of four or five. They reallly were not being obnoxiously loud, just moving about and talking at normal levels, but man, it was loud in our room. The second night, no such problem and a much more restful night. Two beds in our room, one mattress really soft and if we both lay down in it, we ended up in a ball in the center of the bed. The other mattress, somewhat more firm, but still on the soft side.
So, cool hotel, historic, beautiful, located right at the edge of the French Quarter, actually in the warehouse district, so convenient to both, close to everything. But lacking in amenities, soft beds and noisy.
