I stayed here for two nights for work on a weekend in mid-October. I loved it, and honestly have no complaints, and cannot see how any rational person would give this hotel a bad review.
The location is great, one block off canal street, but much quieter than being right on canal. A couple people have commented that it is down an "alley." I wouldn't call it an alley, but a small side street. I am a woman who was travelling alone, and I felt just fine walking to and from the hotel. Granted, I would not have walked there alone at 2 am, but you shouldn't do that anywhere in NOLA.
My room was great, and was a decent size. I don't understand the people who say the rooms are too small. It is historic New Orleans, you aren't going to find massive rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding was nice and new. The bathroom was very spacious. I felt very safe in the hotel, and it was nice and quiet. I got a great night's sleep.
I purchased the AAA rate, which included breakfast. The buffet was amazing -- definitely not what you find at most hotel's with a breakfast buffett. Eggs made to order, real grits (not instant), fancy breads, etc, etc. All of the staff was very polite and helpful.
I highly recommend this hotel, and if I ever return to NOLA will definitely stay here again.
