            Very convenient location yet quiet enough.

            The blinds in the room needs improvement.

            Only location

            No room service early morning or during the day. Was a huge problem for us, as we went out in a tour and couldn't order breakfast before 7. Also couldn't get lunch during the day when my son didn't feel well . Rooms poorly equipped, no laundry bags , no shower hats, lacking in coffee , tea in the rooms.

            The staff and location were most important. I cannot say enough good things about our staff and valet: he was helpful with restaurant reccomendations (he didn't send us to the "tourist spots"; he sent us to the "local's spots"), friendly, kept treats for the local dogs, and had a smile and greeting for everyone. The other staff members were equally helpful and friendly. The location was behind St. Louis Cathedral. We were within walking distance to everything. The hotel itself spoke old school New Orleans and had charm. We didn't go to New Orleans to stay in a cookie cutter hotel. We will go back to this hotel again!

            The only downside (not a negative for people that enjoy staying in a landmark hotel) was that the rooms were smaller that newer hotels, but there was plenty of room for two people. The bathroom was large and so was the closet.

            Location is good, but, does not have auto parking. Vale parking cost $35 a nite.

            Maids don't hesitate to wake you up to clean the rooms.

            The lobby and staff were extremely inviting. The location is one of the best in New Orleans and the price was low compared to other hotels in the area.

            The location was perfect for us. The staff was was friendly and attentive.

            Our room had a shuttered window facing a wall, so our room was very dark, we couldn't even tell what time of day it was.

            Bell staff exceptional. Location in French quarter is excellent. Lodging in the quarter should be on everyone's bucket list.

            Cramped rooms. Appoints not in line with cost of stay. Someone (not me) mixed up reservations dates and charged me for a no show on day before I was to arrive. Rode up dirty service elevator to clostifobic sized queen sized room. Bellman got us moved to room with two doubles ( not romantic but had room to breath). Buffet breakfast at "Roux" hotel restaurant overpriced for the poorly maintained buffet. Bread was stale, eggs were green, no bacon, sausage dried out, potatoes dried out, grits and oatmeal crusty , breakfast taco hard and tough. Coffee was good but couldn't get refill. At time of checkout gave vallet 35 minute notice (per their request) but car was not pulled up by 40 minutes later. Checked with vallet and they had no record of my calling for my car. Finally got my car 65 minutes after requested then there was no one to load my luggage so we loaded ourselves and then had to hunt down the vallet to get my keys. When I checked out the erroneous no show was still on my bill. Luckily I had my iPad and could prove my reservation with the conformation email.
