We stayed at this hotel before our Carnival Conquest cruise last week and had another great stay. In 2009, we stayed here pre-cruise and hoped that we would have the same wonderful experience as before again-- we did!
I had booked using rewards points and was expecting a standard room-- what a surprise to find that we had been upgraded to a huge suite overlooking the inside courtyard area. The room was spotless, spacious, and beautifully decorated. (Having a hotel room with 2 televisions and 2 bathrooms was the icing on the cake for traveling with kids!)
The hotel is gorgeous inside with the "arts" theme, and the staff is also friendly. We have stayed at some boutique hotels in large cities where the decor is the focus and not the personnel, but the Renaissance Arts has them both covered beautifully!
The hotel location is ideal in that it is away from all of the noise and crowds of the French Quarter, yet it is within walking distance. The riverfront area and Harrah's are also nearby...
For those of you who are cruising and looking to save a few $$, we were able to walk to the port with our luggage and save the $7/per person taxi fare to the cruise terminal. It is a few blocks, but if our kids could handle it, it is an option for those who don't mind walking and pulling suitcases behind in order to avoid a high fare for such a short distance to the port!
