My wife & I took the train down to NOLA for a long weekend. I had planned to stay at the Hotel Monteleone, but when I saw that this property is owned my the same company and that room rates are half the price of the Monteleone, I decided to give this place a try. I booked an inside courtyard room with a balcony on the 2nd floor. The hotel offers a free complimentary breakfast that I would say is average. Front desk staff& bellman friendly & very helpful with directions,dinner recommendations/reservations. The room was old style decor(I don't know how else to describe it). It had double four posts beds and the first night my wife and I hardly slept as the mattress was worn out and we both kept rolling to the middle. The 2nd night we changed beds and had no problems as that mattress was obviously new. This property also has a restaurant but we didn't try it. No gym at this property, but the front desk will give you a key to the Monteleone's gym (about 4 blocks away ) that "works some times and sometimes it doesn't"; which is what happened to me, fortunately a kind lady let me into the gym the one time my key card didn't work. Note of caution: one side of this property fronts a very busy street and the other side has a fire station across the street, which might explain the more than usual number of sirens we awoke to at night.
