    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!

    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.

    Needs a lesson on cleanliness and customer service

    The hotel is in a prime location, just blocks from the convention center and a decent walk from the dome and french quarter. The hotel was totally booked and the internet reviews were good. We got to the hotel room only to find that the bathroom was not properly cleaned - feces under the seat! There was a leak in the bathroom and we were told that a roll out was one price only to get charged a per night fee that was eventually waived due to the inconvenience. The maintenance man flooded the toilet and housekeeping left soaked towels in the bathroom. There is no real front desk, just staff that sits in a room behind a bookcase. Throughout the weekend, we witnessed several complaints and were told by acquaintance who had stayed at the hotel before that customer service was bad. To the hotel's defense, I found the staff to be amicable and willing to accomodate and help. I just think that they need more training and the hotel needs to rethink its strategy on accomodating customers.

    Lovely location for authentic New Orleans

    Overall I enjoyed my stay for a one night trip. The staff was friendly and the feel of the hotel is nice. The room was could have used more cleaning concerning the bed. There were stains on the pillow cases and fuzz in the bed when covers where pushed back. The location is perfect and far enough from the bourbon riff raff.

    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!

    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.

    Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

    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.
