Stayed during Mardi Gras, ideal location, very close to everything but also far enough away from late night revellers on Bourbon to ensure good nights sleep. Reception staff very helpful and friendly, easy and quick check-in. Didn't eat in the hotel as lots of places to eat nearby. Rooms on the small side and bathroom not very big (with a leaky faucet). Hotel overall is great but lacks some attention to detail. Had to ask for hand towels one night, and had a different number each night for 3 nights. Worth becoming part of the guest programme (free morning Tea and coffee delivered to room and free wi-fi)
Didn't have a car so can't comment on valet parking but the garage is right next door.
When busy the bar service can be a little slow (but it was Mardi Gras, so forgivable).
The concierge was very helpful and friendly, always ready with a smile. If you are thinking of going on a swamp tour or plantation tour, book them through the hotel, I wished that I had.
Visited cafe Beignet for breakfast , just a short walk away; very good value.
Didn't use the pool as it was quite cold in the wind but the top terrace has great views. Disappointed that the pool cafe wasn't open while we were there.
I would still recommend this hotel despite the minor issues above. As a Brit visiting the USA the room size is not an issue for us and the overall location, friendliness of the staff, and general atmosphere would attract me back again
