The room rates seemed high for the size of the room, but when you stay at a historic hotel in a downtown location, that's to be expected. The room was clean and comfortable. A few channels on the television were difficult to watch due to static - don't know how this can happen with cable TV. The windows were single-glazed, meaning that noises from the street could be heard in an 8th floor room as if they were just on the other side of the glass - like the guy playing his harmonica until 2 AM. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. The hotel itself was lovely, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the in-house restaurants were very good. The pool area was a relaxing place to not only swim, but also just sit and read the newspaper. If you forgot anything there's a Walgreen's across the street. Bourbon Street is 1 block away. Restaurants, art galleries, shops and historic sites are within easy walking distance.
