It was very nice! Best chose you can possibly make!

We were staying at Le Cirque with my sister, 26 years old females. Stuff was very friendly, rooms nice and clean. It's really close to French District \

Amazing Mardi Gras Experience

This hotel was in THE perfect location for getting a great spot at the parades!! Orpheus and Rex went right in front of it in Lee Circle! The *only problem* I had was that parking was not included in the price I paid for the reservation. When I arrived, I expected that it was, and was quickly informed that it would be $40 extra per night, to have the car valet parked.

I would go back.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New Orleans. The staff is super friendly, and the rooms were very clean. Easy walk to get over to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street.

Nicely Surprised!

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night and had a great experience. The room was a decent size and the decor was fresh and modern. The bathroom had plenty of space and the linens were as viewed in the picture, nice! Also the hotel is right across from the trolly so you can hop right on it and it'll take you to bourbon street in less than 2 minutes & it comes around every 15 minutes. The service was also good although I would have appreciated the lady that checked me in giving me more information. When I gave her my card for deposit she came back and just handed me the room keys, next time it'd be good if she let me know where the room was and like I saw another employee do give out a map of the city and make sure I didn't have any questions. Just a tip not a big deal though. The concierge was great though and gave some tips of where to go.

Oceana off of bourbon street had a delicious seafood platter for about $22.00 & enough for 2 to share. Pier 424 on bourbon had great cocktails freshly made not with mixes but it'll cost about $9-10. Deanie's was a disappointment had bland and fishy crawfish etoufee & a long wait.

Nice hotel but...

This is a very nice hotel with a friendly staff. The only issues I had with it was there was no microwave and iron with ironing board in the room. They did have dry cleaning and ironing services though and an ironing board and iron were brought to my room when I requested it. Also I didnt like that there was no trash can in the restroom... Other than that the hotel is clean and it looks nice!

Very helpful staff

This hotel isn't too far from downtown New Orleans. The street car conveniently stops right by the hotel so it's easy to get downtown. The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was kind and more than helpful. Definitely would stay here again.
