As others have said, this hotel is in a great location, just on the edge of the French Quarter and only a couple blocks in all directions to get to restaurants: House of Blues, a pizza place, an Italian place, seafood places are all along Decatur Str. right around the corner. Bourban St is only 2 blocks away. MANY souvenier shops, clubs, etc all along the areas, as well as more upscale jewelry and art shops a little further into the Fr. Qu.
Harrah's Casino, the Riverwalk and the Conv. Center are also only a 15 min. walk away.
There is a computer and printer next to the front desk to print off your airline boarding pass for free. Room service was cheaper than NYC or Wash. DC, but the breakfast I ordered from it was nothing special. Comfy beds and plentiful pillows.
All staff were pleasant and helpful. This was my first trip to N.O. and I was surprised I didn't hear any southern accents from hotel , shop or restaurant staff!
The concierge booked me on a 2-hr Grayline city highlight tour for about $30, and they also have a 3-hr Katrina tour, paddleboat river tours, and others. Mine was a good overview with a great guide for someone on a tight schedule. It was a short 10 minute walk to the Grayline meeting place.
The Front Desk is now on the first floor, along with a bar, coffee shop, small gift shop and the elevators were not confusing, just different from the norm.
I hope to come back someday and would stay here again.
