The home page reads "Our staff of friendly professionals will make sure that your stay in New Orleans is truly memorable."
I took my fiancee to this hotel as an overnight get away for just the two of us. The room itself was relatively clean but don't be fooled by "Jacuzzi tub" as it is not as luxirious as it sounds. A regular tub with jets is more like it. Also very old and dirty. Otherwise the room itself was adequate. The "friendly and professional staff" was something entirely different. We took a stroll through the french market the next morning and came back to find the maid in our room with "the do not disturb" sign in place. She said she thought we checked out and then stated "don't mess up my bed cause I just made it." Minutes later a rude employee from the front desk said he was charging us another day or to get out . The website lists a feature of 24 hr check in/out but that is not accurate. We were not told we had to check out by noon or we would be thrown out or charged more. Basically for $140.00 you get about a half days stay at this hotel. Can't check in before 3pm and have to be out by noon. 24 hours? I am from New Orleans so please do not allow this Hotel to show you southern hospitality as they don't have it. If you want an experience you won't forget but want to forget then stay here. For us it will be "Truly memorable" but not for reasons the Hotel will wants us to remember!
