I arrived at this hotel on Monday, August 27, 2012, just before the arrival of Hurricane Issic. The first thing I noticed was how close the hotel is to New Orleans Airport (MSY) and how convenient it is to a variety of restaurants and various shopping locations. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I was very surprised that the hotel had a full service bar and restaurant. Not only do they have a great breakfast bar with fresh fruit, eggs, toast, and several types of coffee, the restaurant serves a dinner menu of Cajun, Italian, International and South Indian meals or you can enjoy a burger , wings or fries.
Now under normal circumstances this would be a great hotel. Now throw In a Category 1 Hurricane. When the lights went out all around town, the hotel manager went out in the pouring rain and wind to fire up the emergency generator. At first it would not start but he did not give up until he had it up and running. It allowed the hotel to have safe passage through the halls and stairs as well as the capability of making coffee and ice when it was needed most. I hope to return to this location…Just not during a Hurricane!
