I had seen the mixed reviews, but I was hopeful. It was my Husband's first time in NOLA and I wanted him to grasp the essence of NOLA. I thought this Hotel would be perfect…historic, classic, old world charm…. I was disappointed. While the lobby is very beautiful and the door man in top hat and tails sets the tone when you first enter the Hotel, it is all downhill from there. There was a lack of cleanliness throughout. The shower had mold build up in between the tiles. The hot tub had a ring of dirt around the ledge. The towels in our room smelled musty.
The room size was good. The décor of the room looks more outdated than classy. The mattress was very uncomfortable, seemed old and the mattress sheet would slip off all night. Quality of the toiletries was mediocre.
Service was subpar. We were left without towels for an entire day, staff answered general questions but it seemed you had to pull the information from them. Like a previous poster described, not sure what role the doorman plays other than for show. During our 4 day stay, he opened the door on our arrival and that was it – not that we want someone to open the door for us anyway but he would watch us approach and turn the other way – go figure. We made it back to the PB & J snack bar once – it was ok. We did not try the restaurant.
Location was ok. It’s about a five minute walk to canal and a 30 minute walk to Café du Mond. We walked from the French Quarter back to the Hotel every night and we felt pretty safe. Street car is two blocks away. However, with all of the Hotels to choose from, I would definitely pick one closer to the French Quarter.
This Hotel was not worth the price we paid. Maybe if it would have been lees in price, we are expectation would have been lower.
Definitely have breakfast at Mother’s and try the Restaurant Luke nearby – Great Food!
