This one certainly lives up to its reviews here. I find the staff friendly and courteous. The room is nice sized but the shape might be a little strange. The bathroom is tiny. There are actually rooms with a great view of Downtown New Orleans (in the distance).
The first impression of the room was not good. The smell of the room is not that great - probably because of the high humidity there and I was missing the alarm clock. The AC system is the older kind.
The elevator is sort of small and shallow but they work fine and I did not experience any long wait.
The TV has a lot of channels! There are plenty of plubs on the lamps. The desk is sort of on the small side, the chair could not be raised high enough and I wish there would be another piece of furniture to put things on.
The bed is super comfortable - just the right amount of fluffiness and firmness for me. Boy, I am going to miss it.
There is a gumbo restaurant (Ron's) next door and it is definitely a place to visit.
