If you're looking for an affordable place to stumble back to after a night out in New Orleans, this hotel is fine. Don't expect anything great, but it's a good option for just a bed and a shower.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. But that's about it.
We asked for a nonsmoking room and received that, but whoever was in it before had been smoking in it. The cleaning staff obviously didn't do much to get the smell out. There was also hair and dirt in the corner of our bathroom. Lots of paint chipping off the walls. But the bed and floors seemed clean.
It's about an eight block walk to Jackson square and bourbon street. Not bad, but there are definitely closer hotels to the action. About a block from Harrahs.
Overall, if you're trying to save money, this is a good hotel. If you're looking for anything else, seek other places to stay.
