Very friendly staff and rhe hotel is nice and clean geat location

NICE room, great jazz club downstairs, great location, coffee cafe downstairs

Perfect location! It’s an all around perfect choice for your stay. I stay here every time I come to New Orleans.

The hotel is on Bourbon street and is located close to several great locations.

This hotel was in the middle of Bourbon Street. It was clean, safe, and upscale. We enjoyed the jazz club and its architecture.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Hotel on busy street that seems to party all night long. That part was not very restful

Bathroom needs update. Tub was rusty, exposed plumbing, older furniture.

Great location on Bourbon street. Staff were very helpful apart from not cleaning room in the morning rather than afternoon as we had requested. This happened twice. Other than that would recommend hotel.

Large hotel with cozy places, however for the place like New Orleans and during the short stay one hardly can make use of all of it. There were drunk noises in the hall ways. and there was no sign of someone to stop as it lasts 2 hours around 3 am-4 am. Overall, it was good.

Help friendly, but wouldn't take responsibility for my missing shirts set out to be laundered. If you want to be on Bourbon Street, location is good. The picture of room pictured on their website is a bit of puffery. I'm sure that room exists, but it wasn't our room and it isn't explained on website. Our room was more like a typical upper end motel room.

We had an amazing time. Yes, the bourbon street rooms are loud but that is part of the fun. If you want silence you can get it by picking a courtyard room. We loved having a terrace that opened out over music legends park.

Noise coming from broken toilet in room next door (flushing every 10 minutes with no one in the room) maid did not leave clean towels two of for days or bath rug. Glass door on shower had broken hinge with crack developing in glass unsafe condition.

The shower needed a washer, it would not turn off correctly. When we reported it, nothing changed. The housekeeping was inconsistent on what they performed each day.
