I felt a bit wary about staying here after reading some of the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised by the hotel and staff. The employees were all friendly and helpful with any questions that we had. The room, although on the small side, was clean, and the towels and bed linens were of good quality. I was traveling with both my grandmother and with my three year old son, and therefore requested a room that would be somewhat quiet at night. Our room overlooked the pool and we did not hear a single noise from outside.
There is an eatery in the hotel lobby at which we ate breakfast a few mornings. The employees were friendly and they had a decent breakfast selection.
The hotel's location was also better than I had expected. It's definitely a bit of a hike to some parts of the Quarter, but is extremely close to the Riverwalk, casino, art galleries, and plenty of restaurants. I actually appreciated staying in this location because it gave us time to explore parts of the city that we would otherwise have missed. And, the location felt extremely safe.
Another note- this hotel did not charge a resort fee, which was a nice surprise. Free internet access is always appreciated. They do charge for parking, but we didn't have a car and relied on cabs instead. There is a cab stand directly across the street and we never had to wait for a taxi.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to others. However, we booked the room through priceline at a good rate; I am not sure what the usual rate is.
