My husband and I just returned from 3 nights at this location, and had a fantastic trip. The hotel is a chain, but doesn't feel like one at all. The historic structure of the building is gorgeous, with exposed beams everywhere, and a very comfortable, airy lobby area. There are complimentary cookies and (very good, full-bodied) coffee available all day, which is great when you need to grab something on your way out the door or need a bedtime snack when coming home late. Their free breakfast is also yummy, with different hot items everyday. The room itself was clean, the bedding comfortable, and the air conditioning powerful.
The hotel is really in walking distance to pretty much everything, but far enough away from all the craziness to get some rest when necessary.
What really makes this place stand out is the staff. Every single person we had an interaction with, from the front desk personnel to the concierges to the bartender to the cleaning crew, was incredibly genuine and helpful. They were polite, yes, but also just so very warm and obviously had a great love and pride for their home city. The concierges booked a bunch of different tours at our request, all of which were really enjoyable. We both fell in love with the city and had an amazing time eating, listening to jazz, and wandering the French Quarter. We plan to return soon, and plan to stay at this hotel again.
