Only great experiences with the lobby/housekeeping staff! Hotel is nice and clean, though not overly-lavish, and located near the Quarter. Asked for a quiet room with a window (not all rooms have them) at time of on-line reservation, and was given a nice quiet room on the 12th floor. (Note: We made reservations for a smoking room--make sure your reservation reflects your preference here.) Used our Wells Fargo points which made our stay most affordable. Not able to comment regarding complimentary breakfast as we are late-risers. Housekeeping staff was very accommodating as we never left the room early in the a.m. Upon leaving our room for the day, we informed lobby personnel that housekeeping could go in and clean, and our room was nice and clean upon our return in the evenings. Hotel can also provide a nice bag of extra towels hanging from your doorknob, which is a nice touch. Note that if you're using the Internet (free here where other hotels may charge a fee) and it remains idle for more than 20 mins. (Mac user), you will need to login again. Also was not able to logon to internet with iTouch, even after talking with tech support. Complimentary use of the printers in their business center on the 2nd floor was a plus. Nice central location close to a number of streetcar lines (Canal/St. Charles), as well as the City bus that goes down Magazine Street which will drop you off close to the WW II Museum, amongst other attractions, as well as taking you to the Magazine St. shopping district (boutique shopping/antiques/restaurants) for $1.25 fare. Also close to the streetcar that runs along the Mississippi River which will take you as far as Jackson Square/French Market with a short 2-3 block walk to Frenchman Street for the jazz clubs. Hotel is also a close walk to the Riverwalk indoor mall, Harrah's casino and the ferry to Algiers. All in all, a good value for the money and optimally located!
