First off, the best thing about this place is the service. Every staff member, from the front desk to the bar to the bellmen, were unfailingly polite and helpful...not to the point of being fake, but genuinely seemed to care that we were enjoying our stay. That's a great base to start from, and they hit it out of the park...and should be very proud of their staff. All of them.
It seems like there's a hollywood or movie studio vibe to the place. A big spotlight near the elevators. Oversized chairs outside the bar. A very old school looking pool table in the lobby that I could imagine Dean or Bing or Frank shooting pool on decades ago. Even on our floor, it was lit up purple as we headed to the room. Even the shower was fun - lights on the shower head that went from blue to green to red as the heat of the water progressed.
Only complaint would've been the bed...very low to the floor and didn't seem to have much of a box spring to it. For a hotel that I'm guessing is going to be fighting for guests in and around the French quarter, the bed needs to be better. Simple as that.
Convenient to Canal Street and walking to the French Quarter. I'd give it a 5 just for the service and the originality, but the bed and sleep quality pulls it down just a bit. A better bed and I'd come back every time.
