Horrible Experience

I stayed here for 5 nights and had to move to a different room twice! 1st room: Light was emitting a loud buzzing sound, shampoo/conditioner rack was broken so I couldn't squeeze content out (showered the first night w/o shampoo and conditioner). Lastly, found an opened soda bottle in the mini frig!! Gross!!! 2nd room: People next door was loud and inconsiderate. At 1am, they were partying as if it was their own home. I had to wake up early next morning for a conference so I had to call and request to move to another room. Again, packed all my belongings and moved out. 3rd room: Everything was actually good, except the bathroom faucet drain was clogged up. Next time I'm in NOLA, I think I would book something better.

Wait about a year

This hotel experience was pretty disappointing. It is currently undergoing renovation. Visqueen and cardboard are everywhere. There is not even a vending machine. The hotel might be okay once everything is complete but for now... stay somewhere else.

The hotel was going through a total renovation !!! Most of the time I had to enter the hotel through the kitchen??? What a great impression!! And to think I had to pay for something like this, you should be ashamed for charging me to stay there!!!!!!!!

our 6 day stay at this hotel

First of all, this building use to me the old YMCA. The bathroom is so small two adults can not use it at the same time ( 6ft x 4ft), there is almost NO place to put your toiletries and the very small closet has little room to hand cloths for 2. What they call large room is very, very small. The staff was average at best and not very helpful. There is a $25.00 per day charge to valet your car and if you try to park in front of the hotel YOU WILL BE TOWED. There is one very strange restaurant in the hotel, where it is refered to as, FRENCH - VIETNAMESE cuisine, what a JOKE and the prices were ridiculous high. New Orleans is a GREAT city, plan to stay ANYWHERE else to ensure your trip if fun and hassle free.

Dirtiest hotel room I've ever stayed in

It was clear upon check in that their cleaning staff did not clean the bathroom. It was filthy. Luckily I had my own gloves and cleaning supplies. The room did not smell fresh and the furniture was dingy. Never again!

Terrible stay!!!!

The only thing good about this hotel was the complimentary water at the front desk and the fact that it was right in front of the parade route for mardi gras. First off no one out of all three nights came to clean our room and when I called to ask what time does housekeeping come, some lady at the front desk gave me an attitude saying "I wouldn't have that information, what do you want ma'm?" So, me shocked just simply asked if they can send up housekeeping when they can but of course no one came. The room was small, there was no iron or ironing board. The towels leave white lint all over your body and to top it off the restuarant next door is terrible. We waited an hour and a half for dry cold food, and their excuse was Mardi gras was overwhelming. I'm sorry but if this event is the biggest you have all year you should prepare and have a full staff, at least that's what New York does on it's holiday months. Never again!!!! The only thing decent they had was good drinks but then again you can find that anywhere in New Orleans. So I give this hotel 1 star for terrible service and terrible restaurant quality. Don't waste your money!!!

Too expensive for what you get!

The veneer of new, hip decor is as thin as the walls. Cool building, great location, but needs a deeper-level renovation to be as cool as it's trying to be. Not terrible, but minor annoyances (noise, no remote for the tv, no coffee cups in the room the second morning) made it not worth the $250/night I paid.

Tiny room & very expensive valet

The valet is very expensive ($40) per day. The hotel can charge whatever they want because there is no public parking lot close by. My room is 155 square feet with no windows. It was like sleeping in a match box. My suitcase took up the little available walking space by the bed. The room was clean though.

Overnight stay

The hotel is kinda on the dark and weird side. No one is there to greet you. Your credit card is taken to the back out of your view to complete the transaction. Then, your room key is given to you. The hotel staff lacks friendliness, and their non-inviting. The room is cute & unique! It was decent, fit for two people. Overall, hotel is cool, the staff needs to work customer service. It would make this hotel a plus!
