Everyone we encountered here was very friendly and professional. The room itself was large, the bed was comfortable, there was nice cold A/C, a huge bathroom, and a shower I wish I had in my apt. It was also really clean and we never heard our neighbors. We faced a parking lot and street - we could hear traffic sounds from the bathroom but for some nice reason couldn't in the bedroom area.
Negatives - the tv was off to the side even though there was a lot of room in front of the bed. Not a big deal, but a strange set up. One of the creams was curdled so we threw them all out and they were replaced. We were only given 1 tea each day which wasn't replaced our last day.
The hotel is really close to the Riverwalk, which I enjoyed. It's also about a 10 minute walk to the heart of the French Quarter. We had breakfast at another hotel's restaurant called Dizzies - really good french toast and decent prices ($7-$10 for breakfast dishes).
All in all, I'd stay here again since it was such a comfortable stay.
By the way - do NOT take the New Orleans Airport Shuttle to the hotel. We heard a cab ride for 2 people is $33 one way for a 20 minute ride. Instead we spent an HOUR at non rush hour time because every single person was dropped off at a different hotel - everyone except one other couple was a single traveler which meant lots more drop offs. On the way back to the airport, the shuttle was 15-20 minutes late. The doorman said that they're always late. When it finally came there was no one inside. We were first yet they were still late. The security line at the airport was ridiculously long so it was stressful. Do yourself a favor. If you are traveling with someone else, take the cab!
