There were three of us in an upstairs double room (26). The staff could only find one key to give us when we checked in. Really? The room was clean enough but dated. Funky old bedspreads. Very bland decor in the room. Missing toilet paper roll holder bar. Really? One of the mattress sets seemed worn out, somewhat sunken. The window overlooked a space between an adjacent building where two guard dogs barked at random times in the afternoon and early morning. Internet service dropped one morning of the three nights we were there. There was no coffeemaker in the room and coffee wasn't made downstairs until 8 a.m. Saturday--that seemed late to us. It was prepared by 7 on the other two mornings.
The good points: Great location, easy access to street car. Friendly staff. Reasonable rate. Nice patio/courtyard. Charming hallway.
We knew the hotel did not provide parking when we reserved the room. There were cones on the street in front of the hotel which provided for unloading and loading. And there was no problem finding spots to park along the nearby cross street.
This would not be my first, second or third choice on future trips to New Orleans. There are so many wonderful hotels in this city. And often good deals can be found. But, when an event is going on and other places are booked up, I could see turning to this hotel.
