confirmed a king room which was of course not available when we checked in. ok, asked for a suite near the laundry which happened to be in a restored warehouse which we thought sounded awesome. however, the design is a lot of zig zagging around and a bad smell in the unit. The next morning I see a magnet on the back of the door that indicates it's a pet friendly room. i not only get allergy shots but carry an inhaler and was very upset to realize my headache, etc. was from a pet previously sleeping where I was!

Room Tip: not the safest location. in warehouse district that is quiet and dark at night!

This is a very nice Residence Inn. We had the 2 bedroom suite. It was very clean and comfortable. Wish their was a king bed but we made the queen work. Check in easy, staff very friendly and helpful in finding local restaurant. Breakfast was good, plentiful and clean dining area. Overall, I would defintely stay here again.

Just spent some weeks at this hotel. Staff is great, breakfast is predictable- not great but edible. Rooms are spacious enough, very corporate & bland, but comfortable. The biggest problem is the paito area. they have just completed a nice renovation, but left in place the truly horrible 70s era plastic globe lights which shine into your eyes (and your room) no matter where you sit. These lights have now been outlawed in many municipalities. they are beyond unpleasant and ruin what would otherwise be a lovely outdoor area. i sincerely hope the corporate powers that be will replace these horrid lights with directional lighting and transform this place into a truly great value place to stay.

Spent a couple of days here. The rooms are clean and big with a fully functional kitchenette. The hotel folks were efficient yet hospitable. The complimentary breakfast was well spread and left nothing to be desired. Located pretty much in the heart of the city I am definitely going to stay here the next time I visit New Orleans.

Room Tip: Insist on complimentary breakfast. Its well spread and delicious.

Check in was painless except for we requested two beds & got a single. Everything worked except we had to wait for the phone to be turned on, and it was turned off early on check out day.

The next morning we were awakened by the staff vacuuming the hall outside our door at 8:30 am - so much for do not disturb. & on Sunday morning at 9 am, we were awakened to the sound of boxes being broken down. The courtyard door was next to our windows & some of the laundry carts would hit the wall.

We missed the manager's cocktail, but weekday breakfast was a shambles between burnt coffee, & having to find someone to let the kitchen staff know that guests had been waiting 30 min. for orange juice & sausages.

Room Tip: The hotel will try to send you to the parking lot down the street which is small & cramped when...

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of space in our room at this site. The staff was very responsive and friendly. There is a nice patio area and pool. Breakfast is served in a community room each morning. Happy hour M-Th. While this hotel is many blocks from the French Quarter - it is quite close to the River Front Street Car and several really fine restaurants.

We visited NOLA last week and stayed at this property. It is in the warehouse district and pretty close to Bourbon St...around 10-15mins walk. However all the fancy restaurants and neighborhood bars are always happening. The hotel was overall good value for money.
Check in was smooth- The front desk staff did their job well, not too friendly but my expectations weren't that high so it was fine.
Rooms- The interiors were very modern, spacious and felt like living in an upscale condo.
Breakfast- Decent options for free breakfast and definitely convenient.
Pool- The pool was a good feature but the only downside was it could have been cleaner and the pool chairs could have been updated.

It was safe to walk back to the hotel even late in the night. The convention center is only a 5mins walk and there was a nice place to lounge outside late in the night. We had an early flight and the staff helped us getting a cab.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel with good amenities and a few blocks away from the craziness, this is a good option.
