New Orleans

They gave us wrong room type, dirty floors, bad tub drainage and poor water pressure, poor quality amenities, unfriendly front desk staff. Nice location though and friendly valets. Overpriced for the quality and amenities.

Very close to Bourbon Street and Canal Street. Wear comfortable shoes cause the streets are uneven and dirty.

New Orleans Getaway

[...] The hotel is located one block off Canal Street right across from the French Quarter. It is convenient to all the Quarter attractions. In and out via the valet is easy, just requires a twenty or thirty minute notice. Right by the streetcar line. Room was small but nice. Coffee shop in the lobby. Staff was great!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Drago's at the Hilton Riverfront! Get the chargrilled oysters-the best bite in New Orleans! Of course there are all of the other attractions and restaurants but we always go back to Drago's. We were also pleasantly surprised by the Gazebo Cafe on Dacatur near the French market. Muffaletta and alligator bites!

Fine Hotel for location and price

The staff was nice after dealing with a room that smelled like smoke and concern about construction outside the window. The gave us a couple room options to choose from and we had a nice restful night. Tipping the valet/bellhop well made a huge difference but that is a given in any stay.

Price/value

I arrived after midnight and found the staff congenial. The desk clerk upgraded me to a room she said had a window. The window was above eye level, but she said other rooms had no windows. The best thing about the hotel is that it's a block from the French Quarter. And, of course, the price.

In New Orleans, be sure you're near the Quarter, not only for entertainment but also for safety.

great location is about all i can say

The location was great we were close to shoping, jackson square, and casino. We were also close to trolley, which we heard running all night long. It did'nt keep me awake ONCE I fell asleep. No pool.Vending machines ALL broke.The room was small but the most important thing for me was that it had a clean comfy bed-which it did. The bathroom however a different story, mold was on the shower head and around tub. The water barely got luke warm. Brrr;(... oh by the way, the staff, not mean, however not overly nice either...I don't think friendly is in their vocabulary!

Great hotel for the price and location

Perfect location. Just close enough, but just far enough from the French Quarter. Not a 5 star hotel, but not intended to be. Perfect play to stay in a city that you aren't going to hardly be in your room anyway.

The place is a dump

No room safe as advertised, wall paper peeling, mildew and mold in bathrooms, broken furniture, pillows torn, no dining area, no pool, bed hard as a rock, remotes do not work, filthy bathrooms. 1 bar of soap and 1/2 bottle shampoo in room. Would not refund money back. Would never recommend Nerrens Natchez, MS
