I had stayed at this hotel under previous owners and was extremely disappointed at it's decline... Not only did they quadruple prices during Mardi Gras and require non-refundable advanced payment, on check-in they made the guests wear permanent plastic wrist brands, as if we were attending a frat party instead of paying $250.00 a night for a room. They made us sign contracts stating that, among other things, if these wrist bands were damaged, we would be charged and additional $35.00.... and being that everything in town was booked-up, the management seemed to believe that they were not only doing us a favor, but would be more than happy to throw us out in the street on the slightest provocation. The accommodations themselves had gone seriously down hill from my last stay (the carpet was worn, paint was peeling, and the ceiling overhead in one of our rooms began leaking water onto the bed.) To anyone considering this hotel, I would suggest staying ANYWHERE else... New Orleans is noted for excellence in accommodations, and no one should have to be treated to such abuse and shabby conditions.
