I stayed in a King Lofted room on the 6th floor (top floor) facing south. The room was clean with nice appointments. not overly sapcious, but the lofted ceiling made it seem larger. The biggest problem was the train noise. The trains do go by slowly at night, but you can still hear them.
The location is good, but not great. You are about 8-9 blocks from the Old Third Ward.
Parking was interesting. They park your car about 15 paces from the front door, where there is also street parking. As others have mentioned, it is $25/day. I would advise you to save your money and walk the 1/2 block to the street parking.
We had an appetizer and drinks in the Yard (outdoor lounge) this is a fantastic place during the evenings. The furniture is extremely comfortable, and you can bring your dog down to join you. The prices of the martini's were a little steep ($13-$15). Beer was $4 for domestics. We ordered the overpriced and average spinach dip. DO NOT ORDER THIS. It was $17 and served with crutons essentially. Way overpriced.
Overall I would say this is great choice if you are traveling with your dog or if you plan to visit the Harley museum just over the bridge. If you do go with your dog plan to have drinks in the Yard around or just after sunset.
