For the most part a comfortable stay. The bed was very comfortable and we always got a good nights sleep. The room lighting was inadequate. Just not bright enough. Lobby and hallway temps way too cold. Very uncomfortable. Missed having a fan in the bathroom....More

Pros: cool structure, great location, helpful staff. Neutral: lots of light, but lousy views. Cons: capitalize on generic history of NOLA; specifics of property and building are exceedingly difficult to uncover.

world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

The Canal Steet streetcar runs quite close to Common Street and stops at each cross street, you can pay driver on entry. Not sure where train station is, may be easier to use cab.
