This hotel has become THE place that I stay in NOLA - I would never even dream of staying elsewhere. The location is fantastic - this hotel is in the middle of the French Quarter and once you exit the hotel door, you find yourself with an overwhelming amount of places to go and check out. It's amazing - the location really could not get any better.
The hotel rooms are beautiful, if not a bit small, but this is an older hotel, so it's quite fine. The furniture and furnishings are beautiful and classic - they are not run-of-the-mill hotel furnishings. Try to get a room on the 2nd floor with a door that opens out onto the large patio courtyard in the middle of the hotel. The patio lights up and night and very few people are out there - with the tables, plants and fountain, it makes a great place to relax at night with friends.
The restaurant at this hotel is also delicious - definitely check out their breakfast buffet, because the banana bread is not to be missed. I would have walked off with the entire loaf of it if I'd been allowed to. The service at the restaurant is great and very attentive to diners' needs.
The doorman and hotel staff are all very friendly. They get to know you as a guest and always greet guests with a big "hello." Very professional, very friendly.
The only thing I'd say is watch your MINI-BAR -- I made the mistake of cutting the plastic zip-tie on mine and NEVER drank out of it, yet somehow each day things would be missing and when I checked out my bill included a $700 mini-bar tab. It was straightened out after I brought it to the attention of the front desk, but it was still quite unexpected!
