Great place to stay for vacation.Close to everything. Desi vega was great.

Just far enough from overly rowdy tourist but close enough to walk down to French Quarter. Older hotel staff was polite. Wish there was a mini fridge.

The staff was wonderful and the style of the hotel great

The property and room were nice and clean. The staff was all very welcoming and helpful. missed having a mini fridge in the room though.

Excellent location, though the street traffic noise at the front of the building was about bothersome, I got used to it and slept very comfortably in their beds. Pillows were a bit too thick, and hallway walls a bit too thin but I would definitely stay there again. Having the streetcar right out front was a lifesaver.

We enjoyed our stay, the staff was wonderful. They helped make our trip to Children’s Hospital a little less stressful.

Great location, easy to reach all attractions, in a quiet area

You can smell cigarette smoke in lobbies and room, even though signs say nonsmoking.

Very nice hotel walking distance to most attractions downtown.

Friendly staff, especially India and Mitch, beautiful room, nice location.

This Hotel is in a good location by a small park. Close walk to Mothers Restaurant. The bed was comfortable and the carpet looked brand new also the shower was nice and hot! The furniture was worn and very old, the upholstered furniture was in need of repair or replacing. Other than that it worked fine for a business trip and couples would enjoy it. The first night I made to get used to the street car rumbling down the street every 10 to 15 minutes but I got used to that. A fridge in the room would have been useful.

The staff was amazing, they go above and beyond! Great location. And its pet friendly

My stay was very pleasant. When I arrived it was really early in the morning and the person working front desk was not helpful. He basically told me to come back in 4 hours when I had already made arrangements with the hotel for an early check in. In less than an hour his shift was up and another person took his place. He very quickly checked me in and was soo nice to me, even recognized that it was my birthday. He had great customer service skills and if he would have told me to come back in 4 hours I would have happily complied.

Concierge is snippy--check in and out. Dan loves the 'power' he yields as a...concierge. However his brand of service..needing to be in control and being snippy when speaking to hotel clients, is nowhere close to customer service in the hospitality industry. We greeted him and asked to check in/out to which he interrupted several times to explain that he actually has his specific procedure: "Now, no, you wait now, let's start with your name first. And then I'll take it from there." Kindly check the ego when you're at work. Valet was a lovely man. Top floor (6th) requires two elevators and offers no tub (handicapped shower without a stall). Poor concierge. Convenient location.
