There is so much to love about this addition to the amazing WWII museum campus in New Orleans, I hate to find fault, but there are some too important to ignore. I won't dwell on the promised housekeeping that never materialized or the tempting Kilroy bar and Normandy restaurant that weren't yet open. The breakfasts we had paid for in advance were thus muffins and coffee from a limited selection (with gruff service to boot). But kudos to the architect and designer! The hotel itself is stunning. The lobby has the sweep and grandeur of an Art Deco-era Hollywood set. The nod to WWII is thoughtful and never veers into kitsch. Our King room was well-appointed and spacious. So what was so wrong? Well, the hotel stinks. Literally. The air system wafts a fussy perfumed scent all over the first floor. You can smell it everywhere, including the dining area (for eating that coffee and muffin). I am NOT someone sensitive to smells and yet found it almost gag-inducing. It took three days after we left to leave my sensory memory. The other giant ???????? is why, with half the rooms facing the interior core, is there nothing to look down on but a concrete slab? This was the view from our third floor room. The hotel has nine stories. Could there not have been some whimsy or even "Disney magic" here? A faux pool? Astro turf with benches and faux plantings? A painted airplane runway? Flags of the allies? Anything but prison-grey concrete!

Hotel's Favourite
We were surprised and impressed by how beautifully decorated the hotel was (Art Deco, with a touch of military history tossed in (as it is adjacent to the WWII Museum)). The room was nicely appointed (yes, free wifi), and Art Deco theme continued. Bathroom was roomy, as was the shower. I suppose because they’re relatively new, there were a few kinks to work out: they didn’t clean our room (but cleaned our friends’); the expansive downstairs lounge (which looks great) was not open yet (and the first night of our stay, the rooftop bar was closed for a private party so no cocktails at the Higgins); and the little store/cafe offered very limited hours. Interesting neighborhood, and, because it’s not in the Quarter, relatively easy access. We definitely plan to return.

I thought The Waldorf was the only thing going, until now. The Higgins Hotel is EVERYTHING! From the cleanliness, to the service and location, all the way down to the anticipation of your needs, they are top notch! This trip was to bring our 95-year old GRANDfather (WWII Veteran) to visit The National World War II Museum. It was an amazing experience from the planning to the goodbyes. Mrs. Shelita Bourgeois, Ms. Patricia Isidore, Ms. Diane Riche, Mr. Brandon Carr, Mr. Lee Crean, Colonel Crean, Mr. James Williams, Andreas, Michelle & Angela (pardon me for forgetting your last names) I owe each of you naming rights to my first grandchild! My entire family will forever remember your genuine kindness toward us. My grandfather has been calling all of his friends bragging about how you all treated him like a king. The same for all of us. We will be talking about this visit for a very long time. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! See you in July! PS. The museum is a MUST SEE. Please visit AND become a member!!! It is a national treasure.

We travel to N.O. often, and The Higgins will be my new go-to hotel. We've stayed at 3 Curio hotels this year, this was our favorite because of the decor, service and location. Our suite was large, very clean, comfortable and had great views of the GNO bridge from the balcony. If you didn't pay attention in history, this is your chance to redeem yourself with becoming a WWII buff, you can't help but learn from the environment here. Perfect location to spend a few hours at the Museum, and walk to restaurants. Rosie's was fun on the rooftop, too. I saw a few remarks about parking but we thought parking was very convenient, right next door, attached. You're in a city 300 years old, finding parking can be a pain, but this was perfect and felt very safe. I can't wait to bring friends to stay here, and see the beautiful city from a different, more intellectual perspective.

Great experience from check in to check out. Love the location across the street from WWII museum and very easy access to most of New Orleans attractions. We drove and parked our car in the garage next to the hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated in WWII theme. 40’s music throughout the lobby and public areas. Would definitely stay here again if in New Orleans.
