This is a great hotel if you are going to a convention at the convention center. It is very convenient , right next door, but the convention center is about a mile long so depending what hall you are in you might not want to walk it. I was in Building 1 which has been renovated fairly recently. I also know that building 3 has been renovated as I had a colleague staying in that building. I am not sure about building 2. The breakfast was good, but as expected pretty expensive, however it is better than waiting in a Starbucks line 50 people deep at the convention center.
Even if you aren't attending a convention the location is pretty good. It is literally right across the street from the casino if that is your thing, the back opens out to the riverwalk. Jackson Square and the French Quarter is just a short walk away (1/2 mile ish ) and you can easily walk to Lafayette square and the warehouse district. Magazine Street and St. Charles are also accessible but I would recommend taking a cab there from the hotel.
