If you like Ritz Carlton's you will be happy with this one. It seems a little out of character in NOLA, since this is the capital of sleaze. Rooms are a decent size and the interior ones look out over a lovely courtyard. Courtyard was one of the best parts, had breakfast there as well as late evening coffee. The concierges are very good. Biggest negative is that there are big groups. Second negative is that you have to go on two elevator banks to get out.
