Reviewed 5 June 2016

Very convenient location but the room itself was old. Floor was sinking in some spots in the room and carpet was crumpled in several places. No microwave or fridge in our room so that was inconvenient as well. Other than that the location is spectacular!

Close to everything. Comfortable beds and high pressure showers (hate when you need to stand in the shower for ages just to get rid of the shampoo) Verry friendly staff that helped us find to French quarter and the garden district.

Good hotel with friendly staff in a central location. Good Restaurent downstairs with decent breakfast. Did not like the condition of room due to old carpets which gave out an odour had to use air neutraliser, couch was old need replacing. No microwave or fridge which was a bit disappointing. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay

Very decent hotel in a great location (safe and within walking distance to French Quarter, Canal Street or Riverside mall). Old, well kept and stylish. Most of the reception staff was VERY FRIENDLY and helpful. But there is a huge difference in rooms. First (since it was a busy weekend) they put us into a room facing the back (316)....

A very good old fashioned and lovely hotel, well located, near main atractions, but in a quiet neighbourhood Not expensive at all, but breakfast is not included and it's overcharged. The room and the service was excellent, though the one we got was a bit too small

Very nice hotel in what was once a bank. The vault is on display across from the check in desk. Superbly managed. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful, especially 'Chase' at the check in desk. Would definitely stay again.

Very friendly staff and clean! Did not get to try the bar since it was a Sunday when we checked in. The breakfast was good the next morning. They offered a FREE upgrade which was very nice. Thank you Mr. Earl for being so nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
