Overall, the hotel was nice. Helpful staff, good looking guys with trendy headsets, fast valet, cosy ambiance, pleasant smell (they burn real candles in the evening) and very comfortable chairs in lobby. Didn't try the bar though.
We have upgraded to an "apple king" suite upon arrival - more roomy but no view, only smarter neighbors from La Quinta. Apple TV (main thing in Apple King) didn't work. Walls in the room have scratches and marks. Old phone :) Funny, this is a boutique hotel, you pay boutique price and get an old, beige, very used phone with yellow paper tags for numbers. Also found hair from previous guests on hairdryer (not properly attached to the wall also, scratches all around). Hook on the bathroom door was broken. Too rustic for the modern hotel. Non boutique mattress at all. It has a really hard edge so if you sit on it, and your feet are on the floor - it will hurt you legs.
I booked this hotel for our anniversary trip, that's why i wanted something special and its photos on web site were amazing... And they are actually true I must say...with small exceptions that can ruin the whole picture if you have high expectations. So be prepared - boutique hotel but only in the evening when your vision is limited and you had a drink or two.
Our friends stayed nearby for 100$ cheaper per night - limited window view (almost the same), location on canal street (the same), same valet park price and an "old style" rooms which I was concerned about, but it turns out they are very cute. And bathroom - bathroom was all granite - floor and walls. And we, in boutique hotel, had white tile with cracked grout. :))
Regardless, We had a great time in NOLA , spent only 6 hours per day at the hotel and had no need for Apple TV.
