I had seen the positive reviews for this place, so when my work booked my trip I figured it was a good bet. And it really was-every staff member was super friendly and it is really a nicely decorated hotel-rooms are really pretty. The breakfast is a nice offering although I wished there was oatmeal or fresh cut fruit too. My only negative is the location is very strange- it is a building behind a building...and not really near anywhere you would want to go unless you would like to go to Walgreens next door. There is a restaurant next door "New Orleans Burger and Seafood" and the Seafood platter was excellent-except for the side of bread which was just a charred piece of bread. The thin catfish was delectable (and I thought I didn't like catfish). I would have loved to be downtown for my stay, and this hotel is a good 15 min away. But if you have to stay in Harvey/Marrero, this is a great pick. Outdoor Pool looked really nice but I never had the chance to dip in. Parking was a little tight since the rows are a bit close together and there wasn't much parking to find at night-but I always found a spot during my 4 night stay. Free parking too I should mention. Not too far from the hotel is any store you might need or fast food. A mall is a few miles down the road too that I drove to for the sole intention of celebrating my bad day at work with some Cafe Du Monde beignets...yummy therapy;) Overall.Not an upscale area but seemed safe enough for a female traveling alone. I would stay again-if I can't stay in the FQ!
