Good conference hotel

Overall it was a good position for the conference a short work to the convention area. Staff very helpful. Room was a little noisy for me with the constant drone of the air conditioning unit. Restaurant and bar very good excellent food.

Wonderful Place to Stay

Right in Downtown New Orleans--close to Warehouse district, CBD, French quarter (1mi), the Marigny (2mi) walking distance (2mi) to the Treme, easy cab ride uptown for music at Tipitina's or the Maple Leaf Bar. Great hotel bar with expert mixologist on staff; also, hotel has a parrot. Herbsaint and Cochon less than a mile away, for amazing meals (make a reservation!)

Not centrally located but great bar and restaurant

Pros: -Lovely boutique hotel -Close to the convention center -Excellent bar and restaurant (Tivoli & Lee; Bellaoq) -Friendly bellhops and front desk staff -Friendly parrot roams the front desk and lobby! Cons: -Can't check in before 3 PM -Not close to the French Quarter or downtown area; cabs are a must -Tiny rooms and shower - I had to call more than once when ordering room service or toiletries -Advertises complimentary wine and water at front desk, but either wasn't there or no glasses.

Anniversary getaway

Everyone was just great, I did not think it was in walking distance to the French Quarter like they said but there was a trolley across the street which was a lot of fun to ride.

Loved the Warehouse District!

This hotel is newely redone. BBar tenders practice great mixology! We liked the atmosphere of the location much better that when we stayed closer to Burbon St. We had a convention to attend and we could walk to the convention center with no problem. The one minus--there is valet parking available @ $30 a night, 3 blocks away, or you can self park RIGHT BEHIND THE HOTEL for $20!

The bar tenders were great! They are really into the whole "mixology" thing and have some really wonderful drinks to try--the Earl Grey Garden was at the top of the list.

A nice place, but at least one "miss" every day

The hotel is nice and the location is convenient to the streetcar system. The stop is just a block away. Taxis to/from the French Quarter will be under $10 each way. Every day that we stayed (3 nights) had a minor error that was easily fixed, but could have been eliminated with better oversight. For example, we were given a nice coffee pot, but no cups. A call to the front desk, and we had cups 10 minutes later. On the second night, we discovered that we had no towels. Once again, a call to the front desk and we hotels in 10 minutes. On the third night, we experienced technical difficulties with our room key cards and had to make three trips downstairs to get the problem resolved so that we could enter out room. Overall, the hotel was fine and the staff was very nice, but at an average price of $165 per night, it wasn't the best value in town.

Awesome hotel!!! Newly weds had a great time staying here!!!!

We found this hotel on internet while in our honey moon. The reviews were good so we stayed. Really great clean hotel. It's a hotel in a modern style so if your looking for the ultra traditional this is not. We loved it the staff was helpful and friendly. The parking was not to far. The beds were comfy and the rooms were very clean. This was our favorite hotel on our honey moon by far. We walked everyday and night to the French quarter not a bad walk at all. We felt safe even walking at 2 in the morning from bourbon st. The coolest part is that this place has bikes that you can rent for free. That was awesome to ride around on.
