We travelled 9 hours and were ready to just get to the hotel and relax. They were very helpful, the room we reserved was not cleaned yet (not their fault, we were early). My husband forgot to ask for a ground floor room, I use a cane to walk). They did not hesitate to offered us a different room which...

The room was clean and quaint. The decor was very festive and thematic with New Orleans Mardi Gras. The location was a little farther out from the French Quarter and tourist areas, but it was worth the 15-minute drive. The breakfast was surprisingly delicious, especially the grits!

Disappointed. Made the reservation in the morning. Showed up after a long day of travel to discover there was no room reserved for us. Car full of sad kids and unhappy parents driving around late at night only to be charged full price at a hotel with fewer amenities. Won't use again!!!

Hotel is a $40 cab ride from the airport; the shuttle does NOT go to this hotel. There are zero restaurants near this hotel, which means I spent a bundle on Uber and cabs. The smell was not foul, but it wasn't 'pleasant' like most hotels. Had to kill a HUGE roach which is NOT cool. I've stayed at better...

This hotel is an excellent place to stay, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were perfect and the location was great. The people at the front desk very helpful and considerate. The maintenance man fixed a minor problem immediately, along with the kitchen staff and house keeping staff making our stay very relaxing.

Nicest, cleanest, hotel beyond far. Great customer service. Remodeled rooms, great filling breakfast, ease to and from new Orleans or airport. Few miles outside of town made it nice and quiet for when you wanted to escape and rest. Not sure if taxi prices for we rented a car. Highly highly recommend. I hopefully will get to visit again soon...
