Pro's: Great location; comfortable rooms; ample convention/event space; adjacent to Riverwalk Mall, casino, and convention center. Not in the French Quarter, but close enough.
Con's: So-so service; almost $50 per day to park; $250+ per night; outrageous food and bar prices ($7 for a bud light at the bar, and $100 for breakfast for four); no free internet service.
If you want to be close the FQ, Casino, Aquarium, and Convention Center, shop around. There ARE other options that are very close by that will not cost you an arm and a leg. This property leads one to believe that they are the ONLY hotel suited to conventioneers, and this is simply not true.
Oh, and I almost forgot... the walls are rather thin and don't seem to have much sound insulation. I could easily hear the couple next to me; their "session" was not really that loud, but it souned as though the pass-through door was open. Fortunately for me - and perhaps not so for one of them - it was a rather brief event and I never really lost much sleep. Kind of like being back in the frat house in school, no?
