I was here in June for 3 days for a conference. This hotel was very comfortable. As other reviews said, the beds here are extremely comfortable and plush. The rooms are a little bit old and could use more modern furniture and LCD TVs. But everything is very well kept and very clean -- not run down at all!
The hotel has two outdoor pools -- one is deeper and goes up to 8 ft. The fitness center is huge and well equipped with plenty of machines and LCD TVs. The location is decent -- I'm not a party person so I appreciated not being on Bourbon street. It's about 6 blocks from the Mississipi or about a 5-10 minute walk. I highly recommend requesting a river view on a high floor in the River Tower. We stayed on the 36th floor and had a super view of the river -- got to see barges and a cruise ship.
As for the conference, I can't say enough about the conference staff. I was very impressed at how they kept the refreshments area stocked and very clean for our breaks and for our lunch. Also, there is a FedEx-Kinko's in the hotel lobby in case you need any last minute printing.
I highly recommend this hotel if you're coming to New Orleans!
