We needed a place to stay one night in New Orleans, and had searched a few hotels without luck. The Super6 next door seemed very low-quality, so we took this.
We found that this hotel was better, but only by a slim margin. The entrance hallway with marble certainly more impressive. But when the receptionist is spending most of the time with an iPhone (texting ?), we're off to a bad start.
Luggage cart with flat wheels.. Elevator that is in dire need of both a broom and a wet mop (also next day). A yellow-ist fluid in the staircase landing (only removed after we pointed it out).
The room with dark, worn-out appearance, and an airconditioner we felt only made a LOT of noise but produced little cold air. We turned it off just to get some sleep.
Wifi worked, but _incredibly_ slow. Is all this hotel sharing a dial-up modem ?
There was a pool, decent size, but only some of us ventured in. It was not circulating and so dirty we could hardly see bottom at 3 feet.. That is not a good sign. There were several bugs (yes also roaches) in water and around.
Breakfast just about the worst we have experienced so far. How can a hotel run out of jam in the high season ? No guests expected ? Breakfast staff did not seem to care a bit.
The "juice" with a terrible taste of concentrate. Waffles with a bad taste and impossible to make crispy. Other than that the usual sad dry bagels, bread and 2 different cereals, like all discount hotels.
All in all, this is a place to sleep. The only good thing: all in all, with breakfast and the free wifi, this hotel is marginally better than it's neighbor. But truly it's a dump and there are better alternatives. With friendly staff, better service and at least a semi-clean pool.
