I tend to do quite a bit of research before booking hotels, and this one was showing upvery favourably, and I understand why.
I emailed in advance to find out how to get there from airport, and got a quick reply to jump on shuttle busthat drops you at the door.
The location was great, five min walk to French quarter , ten down to river... I literally did walk everywhere from the hotel.
The pool wasnt big, small in fact, but big enough to get in, splash around and cool down.
my room was big, equipped with coffee maker,fridge and microwave, all of which came in handy when being stuck in the hotel during the recent hurricane (and the small lobby shop packed an amazing amount of stuff into it that you might need)
The free breakfast had good choice, and all tasted good.... first time I have seen waffle makers at a breakfast buffet, but they proved popular.
The staff were all friendly, helpful, and very good at keeping everyone informed as to what would happen in worse case scenario when Issac hit, thankfully though, the hotel ran smoothly.
I've never given a five star review to hotel before that I can remember, but this one was worth it!
