We stayed here for a weekend. It is a perfect location for a visit to NOLA. Right in the middle of the Garden District and the French Quarter. As others have said, the streetcar stop across the street is VERY convenient. Some of the steetcars were very full and some not full at all--don't hesitate to wait for another one. (This was August though, not peak season when I'm sure they are all full.) The St. Charles line will take you right to Canal Street. Bourbon Street is right across the street. By the way, most streetcars have pamphlets hanging up with streetcar info: map, stops, and times--grab one while you are on it or you can pick one up at the Louisiana Visitor Center/ Rest Stop. The hotel does charge for parking but if you pass the hotel and make three right turns (caution: the (not busy) streets are one way) you can park on Thalia Street for free. It is a quiet one way street right between the hotel and the paid parking lot for the hotel. There is a security guard at the hotel who spends most of the time in the courtyard which is open to Thalia Street . I am from a small town and I felt safe leaving my car there (of course I removed EVERYTHING from the car during my stay). Emeril's Delmonico is right across the street. For cheap eats, there is a Wendy's right next to the hotel and a Popeye's on the other side of Wendy's. (I watched for the Wendy's and Popeye's to know that the streetcar stop for the hotel was coming up.) Also , there are numerous drug stores (CVS, Walgreens) around. I found these to be the best (cheapest) place to buy a bottle of water. CVS has a 1 Liter (about 33 oz.) bottle of Ice Canyon spring water for $1.50.
