My wife and I stayed at this timeshare for a week after booking it through RCI. The unit was described as a 1-bedroom with a full kitchen. The kitchen does have a traditional refrigerator, microwave and toaster, but no stove or burners.
The good: Great location just off of Canal Street, which borders the French Quarter and is a couple blocks from the river. It also has easy access to all the current cable car routes and city buses. The area felt reasonable safe and well lit, plus the location so close to very busy Canal Street was comforting when on foot.
The hotel was recently built in an old printing factory so you can count on fresh paint and carpet, and everything should be working.
The staff working in the garage/bellhops were friendly, looked out for the patrons and were very helpful. You tend to interact a lot because it is faster to head to Canal street through the garage as opposed to the front door.
The bad: Sloppy housekeeping - trash left behind end tables, hair stuck to shower walls and very sticky counters in the kitchenette.
Thin walls - a neighbor complained because even though the sound wasn't very loud, the woofer for the DVDs was vibrating the walls on her side. You could nearly make out neighboring units conversations.
Very business unfriendly - the $6 a day wi-fi Internet was stunningly slow (a speed test showed it runs at 8% of average speed) and phone messages can be irretrievable. A message left at noon on Nov. 25 could not be accessed until Nov. 27 despite the flashing light and calls to the front desk.
