My husband and I recently went to New Orleans for the first time. I booked through Expedia but used tripadvisor to check hotel reviews. I am quite glad I didn't let a few bad reviews turn me away.
The location is perfect, one block away from Bourbon. Close enough to walk anywhere but quiet at night. Our room was not huge but had all the amenities we required. Lots of pillows on the bed, clean sheets and a desk and table with chairs.
The hotel bar, May Bailey's place, is located on the site of an old bordello. The decor in the bar is in keeping with it's history. Beautiful dark wood and burgundy patterned wallpaper. Both Jeffrey and Amy, the bartenders while we were there, were friendly and helpful with local info.
The hotel staff quickly responded to any need we had, whether receiving my baggage (lost in flight) or giving directions for the streetcars.
Our room was on the 4th floor, near the elevator, which could be a little noisy in the morning but I didn't go to New Orleans to sleep the day away.
Continental breakfast, afternoon tea and bar snacks at "Happy Hour" were all delicious and plentiful.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
