My husband and I stayed here both before a cruise and during Mardi Gras. I thought the location very good. Just a few blocks from the French Quarter (the cross street Carondelet turns into Bourbon Street) and one block north of St. Charles.
The price of your room includes wi-fi, complimentary breakfast, popcorn in the afternoon, and sodas all day. In the evening from 5:30 to 7:00 they offer free hot and cold snacks (chicken fingers, hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, chips, etc) and up to three complimentary cocktails. Be advised though that all of this food does not mean they have a restaurant or a bar. They do not.
The rooms we stayed in were clean, but a bit dated with thin bedspreads and somewhat lumpy pillows.
For Mardi Gras they issued wrist bands so that only people staying in the hotel could enter. They also closed a second entrance so that everyone had to pass by security. I appreciated the added security as Mardi Gras is a crazy time. Judging from the number of wrist bands I saw during our three days, I am guessing this is a common practice with a lot of the hotels.
All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would likely stay here again.
