Mold, Yes - Customer Service, No

My experience this past weekend was awful. They had us in the wrong class of room and refused to change it, the room had black mold growing over the window, and the staff only knew one word, "No". I will use that word when returning to New Orleans - we've been many many times but never stayed at this hotel, and we won't stay there in the future. The bed only had two sheets (no bedspread, comforter or blanket), the rooms had no closets, and housekeeping was unavailable, even for emergencies, after 4 PM. The only staff member who seemed at all customer focused was the guy in charge of valet parking. This hotel has been renovated, but the renovations were not enough to make it decent and the staff's attitudes should be enough to scare anyone away. Spend a few extra bucks, stay somewhere else. You'll be glad you did. Oh yeah, the hotel had no restaurant, bar, pool or any other amenities either, plus it's a hike to the decent parts of the French Quarter.

Deanie's Seafood was excellent, and reasonably priced. For souvenirs, it's worth the rather long walk to the French Market - items are half of what they are in the main gift shops in the Quarter.

Small room

Very small room. No window. Smelled a little like mold. But, it was also the cheapest option that we went with, so it's hard to be too angry. We were a bunch of guys going to a weekend. Location was fine, biggest gripe was the size of the room. Didn't realize how small it was going to be. So small, that there were two double beds instead of the standard queen beds. Also can't be too angry, they didn't hide the fact the beds were also small, I just didn't realize it. You can tell it was a private hotel bought my best western. No hotel bar, terrible breakfast, so-so staff. If we had to do it all over again, we'd book the mariott across the street for the extra money,

The upstairs balcony bars on bourbon street have the best deals. It took us a few to realize the 3 for 1 signs were only for the upstairs bars (not to worry, you can get drinks there and bring them everywhere).

good but with some problems

The front desk staff on both day and night shifts was amazing! The bartender that worked thursdays through sundays was fantastic! The AC would cool the room but didn't remove moisture from the air. Nothing would dry and you could feel the sheets sticking to you all night. The fee charged for parking on top of the room fee was ridiculous. I stayed 8 nights and had to pay over two bills to park. The hotel should offer discunted rates to entice more customers. The bathroom ABSOLUTELY NEEDS a power vent. The pedestal sink offers nowhere to set anything.

Fun weekend in the Big Easy

This hotel served its purpose...clean, nice accomodations near the quarter. The price was average. Parking was $25 which is average price and it can only be valet parking. We did have to wait half an hour for our car to be brought around from valet, which was not so great. The worst part of the hotel is definitely the staff. Front desk was extremely rude and unhelpful and full of attitude. I would recommend the hotel to others if they improve their customer service.

Rooms Without Windows

This location worked out well to be able to walk to many of the famous places in New Orleans. However, no where on this website or the hotel website (except in the reviews), was there mention of rooms with no windows. Buyer beware. Also, there is a continental breakfast available, however, no additional food or beverage service after 10am. For the price, the only real advantage of this hotel is the location.

Check out Domilise's Po-Boy Sandwiches. Best Po-Boy's in town!! Nothing fancy (see photo), but awesome shrimp and oyster po-boy's! They also serve deli type sandwiches as well.

Rude Young girl at front desk

One staff person in particular was very rude. She never said hello or goodbye and almost bumped me, passing me to get to the elevator. The room was musty smelling but the room was very spacious. Someone needs so charm school.

Weekend get away

The room was nice and had the old New Orleans feel with the brick wall added to the interior. The staff was rude and would barely acknowledge you. The walls were paper thin you could hear conversations in the halls and other rooms. Breakfast buffet was nice but crowded and the juice machines were broke. All in all not a bad stay with the location being so convient to everything we wanted to do.

Good location and amenities

Great location to downtown areas. The room was comfortable and clean. The only negative was the staff. As a pet friendly hotel I would expect them to have some knowledge about pet areas but when we asked where was a good area to take our dog to the bathroom the front desk woman didn't know and didn't seem to care. Overall it was a nice stay.
