We decided to stay a little outside the city, only 15-20 min away. Not in the middle of the craziness and traffic and got free breakfast and parking. A bonus, they have free drinks during the week between 5-8. I would definitely stay here again.

We didn't want to pay the inflated prices of the hotels closer to downtown NOLA so we chose this place. The drive downtown was short and easy. It was close to the swamp tour we took (less than a mile!) and restaurants. The room was clean and the breakfast was hot. They provided free newspapers and a welcome bag with...

Friendly, comfortable, good value, convenient location. Area is fine and plenty of on-site security and visible police presence in the area for those concerned with safety. Every staff member was welcoming and willing to meet any request. Shower heads are low, so if your are over 6 ft. tall and want to shower... well this is less than comfortable.

This is an older hotel in need of some updates. There is no elevator so be prepared to do the stairs. Breakfast is offered. There is the basics; Danish, cereal, toast, bagels, etc. Getting into the hotel from the east you have to do a "U" turn due to the divider in the road. The only restaurant close is the...

Hi Gerald, thanks for taking the time to write.

Clean hotel away from the craziness of some of the touristy areas of the city. Staff was great and very helpful. The only negative thing I experienced was the mediocre cleaning job by housekeeping. Would stay here again in the future. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the free beer and snack during the week. 👍🏾👍🏾

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The front desk were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was really good. You go to other hotels and pay a lot more money and they don't serve you breakfast.
