We had to evacuate because of Hurricane Gustav, and it is never easy for us because we have four cats. The Residence Inn waived its two-pet limit during this crisis, and rented us a suite. The staff was very kind to its resident evacuees, our room was clean and in good shape, and we were very comfortable.
Our suite had great water pressure, two television sets in good working order, and a cable Internet connection. Our cable was broken, but someone was dispatched (on a Sunday) quickly to give us a new one. There is also wireless access in the lobby.
There was plenty of variety at breakfast, and the hotel provides wine and snacks on weekday evenings. This hotel has a pool, a gym, a sports court, and a bank of computers for those guests who do not bring their own. The suite included a loveseat, desk and office chair, a small dining table, a stove, refrigerator, and sufficient kitchen utilities.
Staying at this hotel made our lives much easier (the cats loved it, too!).
