We stayed here one night before going on a cruise because it’s right across from the cruise terminal and it was an easy walk if you have luggage with wheels. I usually stay right in the heart of the French Quarter whenever I’m in NOLA but I liked this place so much that I might consider staying here again even though it’s not right in the Quarter where I prefer to be.
The rooms were very clean and the service was excellent. Our room faced the river and the convention center and I could actually see our ship pulling in to port from our room. I actually was more impressed with the hotel restaurant more than anything else.
We went for breakfast and you could either order off the menu or choose the buffet for around $20. Our server was excellent and I forgot his name but if you are a manager reading this, he was the only male server working around 9:00 am on Sunday 11/10/13. Top notch service from him. He stayed on top of pouring our juice and coffee and I can’t say enough about how great he was.
We took his advice to get the buffet instead of ordering off the menu because they can make anything for you that’s on the menu as part of the buffet price. I wanted the Ragin’ Cajun’ omelette and it was incredible. It’s basically crawfish etouffee in an omelette but loaded with crawfish and all the goodies. Not skimpy in the least. The chef making the omelettes was very nice and friendly as well.
At around $20 this buffet breakfast was a bargain. Quality thick cut bacon, all the orange juice you could drink, and everything else you could want for breakfast.
