We stayed here with three other couples from Sheffield. The location is perfect. It's towards the end of Chartres Street in the French Quarter - so quiet, with plenty of original character and very central. The hotel is very attractive with a pretty courtyard and small swimming pool. Our room was very large, beautifully furnished with period pieces, with a small kitchenette area and a nice large bathroom. The superking bed in our room was very comfortable but one of our party had a mattress that was shot.
The front of desk staff were very helpful and spent a long time finding a reservation for the eight of us on the Saturday of Easter weekend - a weekend that also saw thousands of visiting runners in town for the Crescent City Classic 10k.
My main criticism is the one I apply to all hotels: no spray for hair-washing - only a fixed overhead shower - and no small individual reading light.
Complimentary coffee was available from 7.00am in the small bar/dining area and, upon request, you can have a good coffee-maker in your room.
No breakfast is included but a cooked breakfast can be ordered and the pancakes, in particular, are very good.
New Orleans is a fantastic location for a holiday weekend and this hotel provided a great base.
