This is an older hotel, but well kept. The room was much larger than I thought it would be after reading the square footage. The ceilings were really high and it did have a window view. We were on the Gravier side so the view was a brick wall, but I only wanted the window for the light. The bathroom was a good size, although the toilet was in an awkward spot (in the corner close to the wall). The half glass on the shower was really not that big of a deal. The rooms also have self climate control. We were here for 3 nights on the second floor, corner room, very close to the elevator. There was hardly any noise from the hallway or street....we slept well. The elevators and valet service were quick and the valet was less expensive than most others locations in the area. I requested my car be in a garage and not on the street, they did just what I requested.
Although the young lady behind the desk was not so pleasant when we first arrived, after I told her I expected a better greeting, she was much nicer each time I saw her after that. The rest of the staff was wonderful, Elray and Alex were on the job and made us most welcome and comfortable.
The hotel has a restaurant called "Dress It" which specializes in gourmet burgers your way. I did not have a burger, but did try the crab cake and onions rings, both were really good. Also try Majorias Commerce across the street for a good, cheap breakfast.
The manager left us a really nice note at check-in, I just wish they had taken the time to confirm my gender prior to addressing it. Also I did notice a few other things that I was not pleased with, but chalked it up to normal everyday occurrences and nothing is like we have it at home. If I needed to stay near the French Quarter in the future, I would definitely stay here again. Marriott is normally my go to for travel, but I will be looking to give this brand more business. We are getting married in a 3.5 weeks and are now looking for an Omni in another city for a mini-honeymoon.
