Very Clean

The staff was SUPER nice. . . .friendly, smiling faces and greeted us each time we walked in the lobby. This is a good location and easy to walk to everything. It is a clean hotel. We would stay here again.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

We arrived in town around 10:30 a.m. The hotel staff recommended that we check-in even though the room wasn't available yet. We left our luggage with them and they valet parked the car. We headed out for lunch and the French Quarters. When we came back around 3:30 it was so easy to pick up our bags and head to the room.

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.

One Night Stay

The hotel was good value for the location. The rooms are somewhat small but adequate for a one night stay and the location was great. I would stay again or recommend this hotel.

Good location, nice staff, but average

Great location on canal street just outside the french quarter and a couple blocks from Bourbon street. Quiet hotel. Could never get room temp quite right. Thermostat stuck on cold and the electrician came to fix and said it was 58 degrees in the room! Also, they did not make up the room during our 2 night stay. Nice friendly staff, though and PJs coffee located in the lobby is a plus

Great Location

The hotel was in a great location. Just one block from Canal Street, which means one block away from the start of the French Quarter. There is a street car that runs right by the hotel. The street car is noisy, but if you are tired from walking and used to big city high traffic road noise you won't mind it. Even though it's noisy, it is a great and cheap mode of transportation right next to the hotel. After all, the hotel is nice and clean. It has a coffee shop downstairs, and the staff was really nice and helpful. I had a great stay.

hidden charges

They charge for a valet parking 32 dollars which is about the highest in this part of New Orleans. They also charge "added value" of 10 dollars per night for internet. Many people don't use internet, so it is definitely not fair, but is it legal? That is a question!

Good Deal for NOLA

Front desk was very helpful and the location is great.. super close to french quarter and bourbon st, etc. Also, close to street cars. Biggest thing I didn't like was the size of the room.. TINY! I don't think I've ever stayed in a room quite so small. However, if you're there to have fun, you won't be in your room much, so it does not really matter. I would recommend.

Halloween and Voodoo Fest Weekend

This was my second stay at this hotel. It has been updated since my last stay. Good location, only a block from Canal and Bourbon St. and close enough for a walk to the French quarter or Riverwalk. Parking is always an issue in N.O., but they have valet if you want to wait and pay the $36 or so, or park yourself for around $17 a day. My room was on the St. Charles St. side, so the noise from the streetcar was noticeable, even on the 7th floor. Small, tight quarters in the room, but clean and comfortable. No fridges in the rooms or vending on the floors, so you have to visit the coffee shop in the lobby for anything. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a good value for a close location in New Orleans.
