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.
