great location

Great French Quarter feel.Nice staff. The room was very small. Talking to other guests we found out that there are a few tiny rooms on each floor but most of the rooms a good. Great outdoor courtyards.

Good hotel, but parking expensive

The hotel stay was nice. The bathroom was huge and beautiful, but the bedroom was a little cramped. Parking was expensive and confusing. It sometimes took the valets 30 minutes to get the car and they would tell you they would bring it to the front, but then it would not be there and you would have to walk around the side to get the car. Parking was really the only problem we had with the hotel.

Excellent location

The hotel is conveniently located in the French Quarter, but not noisy and easily accessible during conventions, wells erved by shuttle. Small and quick to get in and out. Good and effective reception service.

A boutique experience,not a resort

but absolutely wonderful Suped beds,fresh paint, slow elevator, no tub in our king room exterior and slow elevator. THTA only gave us time to talk with other happy people. While not in the hotel, food and drink are everywhere close by, lik from 1/2 block to 6 blocks and everything in between. Wonderful experience and we were ther MARDI GRAS so did NOT want to be in the middle of Bourbon or Royal so this place was perfect and the staff was superb:)
