A large group of friends stayed at the hotel for the Red Dress Run the weekend of August 10, 2013. It was a great hotel with a little courtyard and nice balconies for hanging out and drinking. It was about mid way between Armstrong Park and Bourbon so the location was great. (No portapotties or stinky bar bathrooms for us!) We didn't know until we got there that none of the rooms (that we saw) have windows other than the one's in the door to the balcony. We thought this would make the room quite dark but it had the opposite effect and a fair amount of light came through...even when we didn't want it. We had a king bed and were glad we "upgraded" because the queen rooms were just about big enough for the bed and that's it.
The staff were great! Super friendly and accommodating. They didn't care at all when we camped out in the courtyard for over an hour drinking and listening to music.
The biggest "complaint" we had was the noise. We could hear EVERY street cleaner and motorcycle, boozer and dump truck that came down the street. It was pretty disruptive when you really need some sleep. Can't complain too much about it though considering where we were. The rates were EXTREMELY reasonable and I felt we got good value for money. We probably won't be returning to the hotel because of the noise but I would still recommend it.
Other reviewers have mentioned this but I want to stress the parking situation. We parked and didn't go back to the cars until it was time to leave. I didn't do it but I heard it was a bit of a hike...even if it was only six blocks.
