I was here for a conference and wanted an inexpensive place to stay. The location can't be beat. It is just on the edge of the French Quarters, and only 15 minutes to the convention center and the waterfront.
Maybe it was because I came in late or I paid the lowest price (I booked through discounter Otel.com), I was given the worst room in the house. Avoid the second floor at all cost, esp 204 and 205. These 2 rooms are right over the busy breafast area and noisy lobby. By 5 30 AM or so the workers were already getting ready for breakfast and you can hear it all in the room above. 204 and 205 also have very little natural light. These 2 rooms should never have been made into guest rooms. No one in his right mind would stay in these rooms.
I complained and was moved to the 10th floor and given a smoking room (nothing left in the hotel and I didn't smoke). Here almost everything was better, incl lots of light and quiet. Bed also felt firmer. The room and hallway had a smokey and musty smell and the windows can't open.
The free breakfast was just adequate. Most of it was processed, rich and unhealthy. Advantages-The staff was friendly and the room price was cheap. Location also perfect.
I wouldn't stay here if I came with my spouse. Hotel seems to attract big tour groups.
Book it if you want something cheap, no frills, convenient but reasonably clean. Go somewhere else if you are staying with someone special.

Room Tip: Avoid second floor at all cost. Room 204 and 205 should never have been used for guest rooms.

We came in for the SEC tourney and the hotel was very busy; however, the staff was always attentive and went above and beyond to make sure our room/stay was satisfactory. There were problems with the air conditioning but it was fixed immediately. When we realized the game started after our check out time, the hotel offered to hold our luggage and leave the car in valet parking until after the game. I highly recommend the hotel. We couldn't have been happier or better taken care of from hotel services to recommendations of places to eat to friendliness of staff.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a window!

It is a very clean hotel, with nice rooms, and friendly staff. Best thing is the GREAT location. It is a 10 minute (or less) walk to Bourbon St, 5 minutes to the waterfront, 10-12 minutes to the Dome. There is a breakfast served in the morning- nothing special, but good enough. They will make you a waffle if you ask. The wifi in the room is excellent, and they have a wide range of TV stations. It is priced right, and above all a super location!

Great location, but that's pretty much where it ends for me. My room, on the 4th floor, faced a brick wall. Breakfast extremely basic. Thin walls meant that I was woken every time the guy next door took a shower. Housekeeping poor and disinterested. No hand towels one day, no shampoo the next (despite my asking for some). Long queue at check-out. Good shower, but then maybe that's why it makes such a noise.

Room Tip: Go for a high floor, then you might get a view.
