Construction Nearing Completion
For the price this was a good stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The comforter on the bed was super warm. I couldn’t use it. If you are cold natured you should be fine. They have two brand new Peloton bikes in the little gym. Construction is still going on and it looks pretty close to completion. They should have a full service restaurant soon. In general, this place is on the upswing. I read a lot of reviews that people had encountered issues related to construction. I had no such problems. In any case, within a month of this review I suspect that the construction will be over. I think this will be a really good value to book now in March for a stay in April or May as they try to establish a reputation. We stayed early March 2020.

As what appears to be a brand new hotel, they did a great job! Extremely comfortable and clean. Still a few kinks to work out such as communication feom night shift to day shift, but overall great stay!

Great location and spacious room. Hotel was still under construction so lobby and full amenities were not completely available. The staff was very friendly and the room was great. You can see the hotel is going to be great when finished.

Not Impressed
We've stayed at this hotel before. The hotel is in the perfect location for the Rock-N-Roll Marathon start line. They are in the middle of renovation but we were told reno would be completed before our date of arrival. We had to check-in in a room on the 18th floor; had no downstairs lobby for a meeting area or breakfast area; our room was new, but had no chairs; had to call maintenance to get refrigerator to open; had to call housekeeping to clean bathroom mirror. The hotel should be fine after the renovation is complete but I would not call it a "luxury" hotel by any means. We're trying a different hotel next year.

You will love this place.
I only gave a four star rating on condition because it was under construction but the staff is absolutely wonderful and go out there way for you. I am planning a trip in the next few days and will probably stay there again even know when the first lobby floor is under construction because these people are so great to you. Not to mention over half of downtown New Orleans isUnder construction

Currently being remodeled but looks like it’s at the tail end of it so it was the only inconvenience from a look perspective in the lobby area but was not a set back
