The hotel property was excellent... just remodeled with most new appearances everywhere. The staff in the hotel was perfect! The rooms were the best! Location was very convenient for downtown, LSU, City Park, great places to dine--plus, they welcomed our small dog. The only exceptions were the uncomfortable "round" bed pillows, no towel racks in the bath and some service issues with breakfast. The "free breakfast" was okay if you wanted eggs and sausage. There were no other choices such as fruit, cereal, yogurt, milk...etc There was no juice or water for self serve and you had to catch the one server which we finally did at the end of our meal. We asked for juice and water.....but he brought only one water; we gave up when he said he was having to work alone. I noted that a supervisor or manager was nearby but stayed on her cell phone the entire time. So, we skipped the "free breakfast" the second morning. We did have burgers and beer at the bar the first night and the service was extremely excellent and the food outstanding. All in all, we will be back and stay here again.
