Fantastic hotel in a great location in New Orleans. On Royal st so removed from the crazy Bourbon St but only one street away. Rebuilt in the 1950's it has ambience from much earlier. The carousel bar is probably unique and well worth a go serving a wide range of drinks and food with bar snacks for free. About 15 minutes for a complete rotation but if you go there at a busy time expect to wait for a seat at the bar. Staff are sensational...very customer focussed. Rooms are, to be expected, older but still clean and perfectly functional. Didn't try their restaurant but in room dining was not so good on several occasions so may best be left alone. Lots of food outlets within a very short walk with Daisy Dukes (try the alligator sausage and gumbo) and Willies chicken (crisp chicken wings are awesome) being standouts for cheap eats (try the Hurricane dacquiri at the latter if you dare). Pool deck on the roof is very nice and while quiet when I visited I expect it could be lively when the bar was open. Nice sunset views over the Big Easy. Would stay again.
