We like to stay here for the various meetings we have in downtown New Orleans. It is convenient to the CBD and the French Quarter, the rooms are charming and very up to date and the staff very New Orleans...savvy, colorful, helpful, professional. Valet parking available. The Ruby Slipper next door is terrific for breakfast and/or lunch.

Wonderful placed to stay !! Just make sure you park your car in a cheaper place!!! Its $30.00 a night there. Close to everything but not to close so you can enjoy the quiet! Great location. Very helpful staff and clean!!

We liked this hotel overall and it was good value...except when you added the cost of parking each night ($30/night), it wasn't quite such great value. Although we were told we could have the car within 5-10 minutes at any time, we tended not to want to go through the hassle and so just left the car parked most of the time. The staff was helpful and the room clean and comfortable. The beds were very high! The Ruby Slipper next door was great for breakfast/brunch and it was easy to walk to Canal St and take the tram, or to go to the riverside and walk along it into the French Quarter. I don't think we'd go back though because we'd rather have parking included in the cost and have our car more accessible.

Room Tip: We had a room facing Common St and it was very quiet.

Hotels in NOLA can be a crapshoot. You want to be close to the action, but not be bothered by the noise (& debauchery) of it when you want to sleep. I picked this place because of its location and price (comparable to others in the area that had NO charm, it was a steal)

I really loved this place! The staff was friendly & helpful. The room was charming, if oddly laid out. It was within walking distance of pretty much all we wanted to do (Bourbon St, The Quarter, Superdome, Beignets). I loved the decor, I felt safe walking outside, and it was far enough away that it was quiet for sleeping. I will for sure stay here again when we visit NOLA What a find!

Room Tip: MUST have breakfast at Ruby Slipper, attached to the hotel! Soooo good

I loved the hotel and the staff was friendly. Big perks were location to the French Quarter and The Ruby Slipper. Go to The Ruby Slipper to eat...it's a must.

I would definitely stay here again...my only complaint was the air conditioner (reason for 4 stars and not 5). The room was set up where it blew on our faces and we all felt kind of crappy in the morning. On the last night we just kept it warmer and I felt fine in the morning.

Thanks for a great visit!

Room Tip: Paid for a no windows room and got one with windows! You may get lucky. Really felt homey when we...
