    Wow...

    This newly remodeled hotel was a perfect distance from the convention center and the best dining NOLA had to offer. The rooms were modern and sleek, loved the C.O. Bigelow toiletries and the bed was so comfy. I would definately stay here again.

    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.

    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!)
