The hotel is very charming, with lots of twists and turns in the layout. The pool is small, but beautiful - lots of foliage makes you feel like you're lounging in a jungle. We chose an interior room to save money, so it didn't have windows. We knew this, but it was still startling - very cold and dark, although that was refreshing after long days in the New Orleans sun! It was also hard to wake up as there was no daylight at all. There were some candy wrappers on the floor in our room, which wasn't a big deal until you wondered if they missed those, what else did they miss cleaning? That was the only negative though. The staff was wonderful, everyone from the cleaning crew to the front desk to the bellhops. Very friendly and talkative. Just a short walk to anywhere in the French Quarter, which was great - if you got tired or hot, not too far of a walk to get back home to refresh. I don't know the history of the hotel, but we did have a few weird moments in the night. I was traveling with a friend, and we both experienced what felt like a person sitting down on the edge of the bed and then lightly bouncing for a few minutes, then it stopped. We both felt it on different nights. The once she heard someone walking around at the foot of the beds and thought it was me trying to get to the bathroom until she heard me roll over in my sleep. Could've been anything, but we're choosing to believe it was something spooky to add to our vacation memories. :)
