When I travel, I usually stay at newer 4 star hotels, so this hotel was a nice change of pace for me. I was here for a 3 day conference, and had a very nice stay. It's a gorgeous historic building that's been renovated.
It is very clean, ornately decorated, and they've throught of every detail to make it beautiful and luxurious. I did read a couple reviews that said that this wasn't up to '5 star standards', but I couldn't imagine what those people's standards are - this place was amazing.
The level of service and extra touches was amazing - much nicer than any hotel I've stayed at recently. They laid out robes and slippers, and had turn-down service in the evening with soothing music turned on and chocolates on your pillow. The regular rooms are small, but I think that's normal for a historic building. I wouldn't have been happy with a regular room with my family of 4, but it was great for just myself on a business trip.
The conference facilities were very nice - no complaints at all. The food, the conference space, the service - all wonderful.
It's a short walk to Bourbon Street (about 2 blocks). There is a Walgreens/CVS around the corner if you forget trip essentials like I did.
If I come back with my husband for a more relaxing, tourist trip, I would stay here again in a minute.
