I didn’t feel that the hotel appeared the same in person as it did online. The front desk staff was not very friendly and was often not available to ask questions or request items. The lobby, elevator, and refreshment

Staff is the shining star
Everything was great, the staff is always excellent at this property. The only thing is the pool could’ve been a little cleaner.

10/10 Exceptional

Property location is awesome for accessing the Quarter, riverfront, mall/aquarium. 3-5 blocks for all the brunch/lunch/dinner options. King Suite 212 was great. Updated bathrooms, great bedding, and the front desk ladies were so friendly. $40/day for valet parking. I don’t know how much you would save going another route.

This place could not have been any better! The staff was amazing! The room was elegant. The location is devine! Perfect setting for anything in the French Quarter. We were able to walk every where. Food at the hotel was great and the pool was nice to help fight off the heat of the day. Just a great experience all the way around!

6/10 Good

We had a room with a door that would not close or lock properly. Also the AC would not stop running so it was very very cold. The staff were very nice and sympathetic to theme issues, just unable to resolve them. It was sold out so we had no option to move rooms.
