We picked the French Quarter based on Trip Advisor ratings, reviews and location and as always, Trip Advisor did not disappoint. When we first arrived, I was a little concerned as we entered the building, the narrow, long hallway to a small front desk. But, does THAT matter? Torrey greeted us and escorted us to our room (#205) and informed us of all the ammenities available.
The room was very comfortable for two of us, with a big, King size bed with wonderful linens. The bed was also very comfortable, not too hard, and not too soft. I like to have a kitchenette and this was a nice one. We asked Torrey if we could have a microwave, plates and silverware and they were delivered. So if they originally are not in your room, just ask!! We stayed for 1 week and it was very comfortable for that extended stay.
The bathroom and shower are nice, but there is not a good space to sit a large toiletry bag on. But as with everything, we worked it out. Also, a small armoire is available to house your clothes. Not really any drawers, just two thin drawers attached to each nightstand. There was no iron/ironing board, but we always travel where we don't need one.
Attached to the apartments is "Bourbon Street" restaurant and bar. You can access is directly by pressing "B" in the elevator. That was very convenient. This is also the location where you have your continental breakfast. Very standard continental breakfast. We had a dinner and a lunch at this restaurant and both were very good. Our room was far enough away as to not experience the noise of the bar late at night while trying to sleep. But I can see if your room was right over the bar, how that could be upsetting.
The location is one of the best I've stayed so far in the city. Just off the chaos of Time Square on Restaurant Row and a few short blocks away from a major subway hub at 42nd St. Your restaurant selection in this area is endless and one of the main perks of staying in this location.
Our room was very clean and was cleaned consistently daily. No complaints there.
Lastly, the staff helps make this location a true gem. Collin, Torrey and the others were very friendly and helped make restaurant reservations, recommendations and car-service schedules back to the airport.
We do plan on returning and bringing a few more family members. The French Quarter will be the first place we check for availability when we return.
