This hotel is located in the middle of the French Quarter on Bourbon Street. There are quiet rooms available, but we chose one on facing Bourbon Street. From the 3rd floor, it was a great view of the street and we were able to people watch at any time during the day. The noise was not overwhelming and we were able to sleep soundly through the night. We do live in a city, so we are accustomed to noise - if you want quiet, this is not a room for you.
The room was clean and had the basic amenities - desk, TV, closet, alarm clock, etc. The bathroom was a bit small, but the sink had enough room to store toiletries. There is a coffee shop in the lobby and a bar that plays loud music - fun place to have a drink. The security seems to keep stragglers out of the lobby, so we always felt safe. There is also a pool that was open in early February to our surprise. Overall, this is a great hotel if you want to be in the French quarter and within walking distance of many sites and great restaurants.
