This was a great place to stay during Mardi Gras. It's far enough away from the noise Bourbon Street, but close enough to all the action so you can get there when you feel the need. It's in the French Quarter and central to all the restaurants and shopping. The staff are wonderful and know the area if you need any guidance.
We stayed in a room with a small balcony which overlooked the beautiful courtyard and swimming pool. By the way, I swam in the pool most every morning. Very refreshing.
Angela booked our stay and I can't say enough about her. She went out of her way to ensure our group had a great experience and is very knowledgeable about Mardi Gras and what to see & do while there. This made our stay even more enjoyable.
They offer a continental breakfast in the lobby every morning. Very good, and the lady attending it is friendly and attentive.
The Iris restaurant is just off the lobby and although we were too busy to try the food (next time!), I did stop in for cocktail (or two) and found the mixologist, Sharon, to be one of the best I've had the pleasure of meeting. She can mix all the classics, but if you are adventurous she can make you one of her specialties which are amazing.
All in all, this is a fun place to stay. No hotel can be perfect, but it's really the staff who make or break a hotel. And this place has that covered.
