I based this pick on the history, look & location and was not disappointed. From the moment the ever present doorman opened the way all the staff were extremely helpful and by the second visit the breakfast team were calling me by name. I would point out that the concierge always seems to be in demand so some patience may be required.
My queen room matched the elegance of the hotel decor and was peaceful regardless of the hotel being on one of the main streets.
The hotel houses the revolving Carousel bar which was always busy with live music playing. At the time of visit the hotel restaurant was going through a refurbishment so I can only comment on the breakfast buffet which was reasonably price and very plentiful.
Stepping out of the hotel almost every required location is just a few minutes’ walk away. Left to Canal St, right to St Louis Cathedral, up to Bourbon St and down to the Mississippi River so it could not be better located.
Overall because it’s not one of the larger chain hotels on Canal St, and is still family owned, the staff makes you feel very welcome and they've maintained the old look throughout.
