    Superb

    Very nice hotel centrally located in the French Quarter easily within walking distance to the trolley that can take you to other locations. Plenty of shopping available and many great restaurants. The hotel was very clean and did not feel sticky or humid. We arrived early in the morning and were able to check in right away. Nice surprise. Jackson Square and the waterfront area much more enjoyable. Concierge offered excellent suggestions for dinner options.

    The hotel is located on Bourbon street which is disgusting during the daytime and can't imagine how horrible it must be at night. Never plan to return there although we would probably stay in the Royal Sonesta again. We did not have time to see the ww ii Museum so we will return one day to visit the honorable areas of the city.

    Exclusive

    I loved the size of the rooms and bathroom and although we were looking over Bourbon Street it was very quiet at night in the room and I really appreciated that I was able to sleep soundly all night. The jazz club was a welcome bonus being right downstairs and I loved the pool being bathwater warm. We stayed in a quiet section of the hotel. Much appreciated

    Location was awesome right in middle of the action. Walking distance for most things. For the price I got room for it was a good deal.

    aircon not cool enough. Noise of hotel guests & street easily heard & hotel bit like a rabbit warren to get to & from room. Probably wouldnt of stayed there other than the deal I got thru bookings.com

    Very good

    I did like the location and general pricing. It is also nice rooms and hotel is kept up well.

    The rooms air conditioning system is not up to par for Louisiana heat. It works on a sensor system so when you are not in the room or in our case sleeping it goes off. Not a good idea to maintain a decent temp in the room. Also the night crew was rude and had no shoes on when we went to complain. Also still awaiting my refunded amount.

    Very courteous staff, nice bar, good restaurants

    Sadly, the location. It is a shame to walk out the front door of what is considered a fine hotel just to see a line of topless clubs across the street. Would recommed the hotel, but not the Quarter.

    Good

    We have stayed numerous times in the past and the location is great for what we like to do.

    We had to wait over 3 hours to get in to our room due to a late departure from a "vip guest" that was in the room we were to be in. The clerk ended up changing our rooms as after all this time the housekeeping staff still did not have the room cleaned.

    Fabulous

    Central location in the French quarter, excellent oyster bar and late night bar.

    Proximity of the room to the conference floor kitchen - it smelled like food in the room.

    Fabulous

    The location was fabulous, right in the French Quarter. The Hotel was lovely and very clean. Our room was spacious and confortable.

    Coffee pots are not provided in the rooms which is a big inconvenience for those who rely on coffee to get their day started. This hotel charges $36.00 per day to keep your car in their parking garage. That seemed excessive to me.
