I really enjoyed my stay at the Brakeman. Check in was so easy from the time I walk in they treated me with royalty. The stay was very knowledgeable of the area to send me to the best restaurants and gave me the best walking directions to the restaurants i wanted to go to. This hotel is so close to the French Quarter like literally right there. The hotel is new so everything was perfect. The bed was comfortable and the wifi was the greatest I've ever had at a hotel. If your looking for a great price hotel right in the French Quarter book now.
