Fun, clean, hip, and modern hotel that is located away from the craziness of the French Quarter, which is great if you want to get some sleep. The lobby somewhat reminded me of the W hotel or any other boutique hotel.
Hotel was easy to find and the valet service was excellent. Granted, it was a quite weekend, but they always had our car available when we requested it.
Check in was not a smooth as it should have been. The front desk lady seemed like she could have been trained a little bit more. She was unknowledgeable of how to put a hold on your card for incidentals, which usually occurs when you have already prepaid for the room (which I did). I think she realized her incompetence and put us into a handicap room which was very large, with a very large bathroom. It was located on a high floor with a great view of downtown New Orleans.
Only complaint was that there was NO water pressure whatsoever. I felt like I was out in the light rain and could not rinse the soap off my body. Base on previous reviews, it does appear that water pressure and temperature seem to be a problem at this hotel.
The Aveda amenities were a nice touch as well.
Overall, I would stay here again. The pros outweighs the cons, but I do hope that they get their water pressure fixed ASAP so I won't have to be taking baths again.
