In the past, we avoided this place because of its appearance from a distance. It is tall and appears like it may be in need of renovation. We were wrong and this is now our goto hotel in the quarter.
It meets our expectations in every way. It is perfectly located unless you want to hoof it to Frenchmen Street and back in the wee small hours; it's at the other end of the quarter. We particularly like the front desk attitude which is helpful, friendly and personal. We get rooms that are exactly what we need - quiet, comfy and well equipped. For the first time we stayed in an historic Quarter hotel (check out the famous writers who made the Monteleone their home in the Quarter) with no comprise in comfort. The showers work, the beds are comfortable, roof pool terrific. Staff are helpful. It feels like a one-off hotel and not one of those chain hotels that is run by computers and robots like, say, the Sheraton Four Points in the Quarter. (see review)
