This is a fantastic hotel in a great location. I have stayed at 6 or 7 different hotels in NOLA and this one is my favorite. Shops, restaurants and bars are just a few steps away. The rooms were clean and large. We had the benefit of staying in a room overlooking the courtyard which also had a pull out couch.The bathroom had a very large counter and was a nice size for multiple people staying in the room. The staff was amazing. I did not encounter one employee that was not friendly (even at 5 AM when our scheduled cab to the airport didn't arrive and they quickly accommodated us by calling another cab). The breakfast looked and smelled delicious, and was reasonably priced for a hotel restaurant, although I did not get a chance to eat there. I also wish I had time to do the Haunted Tour of the hotel.
A couple of negatives - the beds have waterproof pads under the sheets and so it was extremely hot when sleeping (even with the A/C turned colder). We all kicked the covers off by morning because we weren't just hot, but sweating. I understand that they are trying to avoid spills ruining the mattresses, but higher quality pads would prevent guests from sweating. And the photos of the pool/courtyard overexaggerate it's size. The area is not as big in person as it looks in the pictures. This wasn't a huge deal but misleading!
