We asked for a quiet room and got it (on the fourth floor). Staff was welcoming and efficient; lobby is small. Since we arrived at 4:30 p.m. we decided to cash in our complimentary drinks at the adjoining bar and rest for a bit, but the bar was dark and smoky, and the dozen chairs surrounding the pool area were taken. We decided to forego the drinks and start exploring the French Quarter, a great take-off point. Besides its ideal location, the hotel offers a wonderful complimentary breakfast (waffles, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, sausage patties.) Our room wasn't spacious but clean and comfortable, especially the bed. Free internet, flat screen TV, coffee and two bottles of water each day. Only thing missing was a small refrigerator where we could store leftovers from all the dinners we enjoyed. We eventually had our two drinks by the pool in very comfortable chairs and later discovered a side courtyard with more chairs near the James Audubon breakfast room. He was supposed to have painted his bird series here. True or not, we loved this bit of New Orleans history in our hotel.
