For the price you're paying-- this hotel has a good value. They offer free wi-fi and complimentary breakfast (which includes hot food items, such as eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes) in the morning. Their bar is under utilized, as the servers "pour hard" and allow you to get take your drinks to the pool area-- a nice quiet evening activity.
Our room was reflective of the professional pictues (although those are of the updated rooms, and our head board was not like that). Although we did not have a court yard room, like other travelers encourage readers to get, our room overlooked the street and Louis Armstrong park, which is beautiful! In the evening the fountain lit up, and the street noise wasn't abnoxious for me (and I'm a light sleeper). The parking fees are not as outrageous as other hotels charge; I called about 6 hotels in the area, and this was, by far, the cheapest parking.
The front desk staff were cordial and helpful. The location is what is best here-- if you want to be able to have peace and quiet, but be close to everything, this is the place for you! It's about a 3 minute walk to Borboun Street, and a 5 minute walk to Canal Street (although it is on the opposite end to the popular River Walk). It's about a 5 minute drive to the 9th Ward, which we explored to see the devestation of Hurricane Katrina. If you don't mind walking, you do not need a vehicle to stay in this area! It was perfect.
