Great weekend trip

We had a great time at this hotel. We had called the night before we arrived and asked if we could have a room with a balcony. When we arrived we couldn't quite yet check in and the hotel took our bags and stored them for us and parked the car. We went back after eating and were welcomed by friendly staff. Our room was typical size hotel room with a very nice balcony. The bathroom was quite small but it was not an issue. Our biggest complaint was there is not a fitted sheet on the bed, just a regular sheet that continued to come off when we slept. The location is Great- just a few blocks to Bourbon street but quite enough to let us sleep. I would highly recommend this hotel!

A good hotel

A nice place that was a short walk to the convention center and good restaurants. Staff was helpful and friendly. While the St. Charles street car line was next to the hotel, the trolleys did not hurt sleep.

Great place in the CBD

I stayed at this hotel for two purposes, a conference at the Convention Center and then to explore New Orleans with friends. I found the location of the hotel to be within walking distance of the Convention Center and the French Quarter. Most things were 10 minute walk. Also, it was conveniently located near cable car lines (St. Charles) and two blocks from Canal street. The staff at the front desk is amazing -- super friendly and helpful when trying to plan things. I cannot stress that enough. The only downside to the hotel was that it did not have any of the amenities that hotels usually have (fridge in room, pool, spa, etc.). Overall, it was a good place to sleep.

Good on a budget

Not the Ritz, but clean and well located for such a deal. If you are looking for somewhere reliable to stay without breaking the bank, recommend the Royal Bourbon

excellent place to lay your head

Checking in was short, sweet, and organized. The rooms were shockingly small, but this was not a prob for us as we only used the room for sleeping. But even though the room was small, it was cozy, and the bed was a vacation in itself. I loved the decor, and I will be staying here next time we go to New Orleans as it was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Overall, great place to have a short stay.
