Located across Canal from the French Quarter, this historic gem. We stayed there while the golfers and their families were staying there for the Zurich Open. If it is good enough for Bubba Watson, well you know the rest. It's definitely good enough for me.
It is beautifully redone and now part of the Waldorf Astoria chain. The lobby is really spectacular. The staff was super busy and it was full to capacity as the Zurich Open was during the first weekend of Jazz Fest. The hotel was at capacity but the staff didn't show it all being gracious, friendly and helpful. I got upgraded to a suite which always puts a spring in my step. It was spacious and luxuriously appointed. I love the tv in the bathroom and the bathroom with two sections with doors for privacy. It also had nice linens and super nice toiletries.
Don't miss the Sazerac Bar - it is reminiscent of the King Cole Bar in the St. Regis in NYC. Both have beautiful murals and a clubby feel. Try the Sazerac cocktail -- a craft cocktail long before they were cool. Breakfast at the adjoining restaurant was very good too with the same excellent attentive service.
The location is great - just out of the Quarter but close enough to walk. Will always try to stay her on future visits.
