I arrived early and had no problem checking in. The desk staff were polite and helpful. The welcome package in the room (water, chips and souvenir coins) were appreciated as was the handwritten welcome note from the manager. Excellent PR!
Location was good. Walking distance to the French Quarter, but far enough away to be quiet. On the St Charles Street trolley line which was convenient if you were to tired to walk back.
The big downside was the elevator! It had to be the slowest in the world! You could wait almost 5 minutes for it to arrive! This really needs to be addressed.
My room was a corner room so I had a great view and the bed was comfortable. Would stay here again.
