I selected this hotel as I was attending a large professional convention at the Ernest Morial Convention Center. The hotel was only a 10 minute walk to the convention center with good sidewalks and crosswalks. There are trolley cars that run along the Mississippi River that easily transport you from the convention center to the French Quarter. From the trolley stop it is just a short walk to Bourbon Street. You can also walk from the hotel to the French Quarter in about 20-30 minutes. Cabs are also a way to travel (they can get pricey). The front desk assistance at check-in was poor, which resulted in me downgrading the service rating for this hotel. I did not find the bed extremely comfortable (it was OK) and I stay in several hotels a month, If you can get this hotel at a reasonable price, it is a good value. This is a very clean hotel, located away from the noise of the French Quarter but close enough to get to without much effort. The hotel staff is usually very friendly, although they need to work on their efficiency during the check-in process and to understand that the check-in experience sets the first (and sometimes the lasting) impression of every hotel.
