I would definitely book this hotel if you plan to visit New Orleans. You are within walking distance of all of the attractions.
In the heart of the French Quarter, my husband and I found ourselves just minutes away from Harrah's Casino, Grayline Tours, and Cafe du Monde...not to mention the dozens of restaurants around!!
You are also just a few blocks away from Bourbon Street without the noise.
We originally booked through AAA and got one of the last rooms, an interior King room with no windows, but were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded upon arrival! We had a spacious room with 3 large windows facing Decatur Street and the river along with the 4-poster Mahogany bed, wardrobe, side stands, and wardrobe. It was wonderful.
The staff was amazing and the private, valet parking made it a breeze to know our rental vehicle was in safe hands at all times (I was originally worried about relinquishing this during our trip). At a moment's notice, they will help load/unload your vehicle or get it ready for you if you want to come and go.
My husband's favorite part of the whole deal was the pool (even though we never swam in it) and the map that folds up and holds your room cards showing the downtown area.
We got quite a lot done in 2 days and the staff helped us make it happen.
My only downsides were: the pillows were too soft; the bathroom floor looked dingy; the tub dripped continuously.
Other than that, it was a fabulous trip and I look forward to staying there again!!
