          Close to bourbon st. Its okay for a 1 night stay any longer would have to book something nicer and more comfortable.

          Needs to be updated.

          Location great and parking good and convenient. Also nice continental breakfast.

          Rooms did not have enough supplies such as towels, toilet paper and drink cups. Bedspreads were stained. Poor room lighting. I'm general, rooms just seem old like they need to be refurbished. Fromt desk Staff was not very friendly.

          No hot water, no manners from staff, no tv remote, no check in at advertised time, no house keeping, no idea!!!

          The facility has a very smoky, stuffy smell. The restroom smelled like urine. We killed a roach in the restroom; when the staff came the next morning to clean the beds were barely made and the roach was still where we left them. The room is very small and dusty. I will never stay again.

          The worst I have ever stayed at. Had better place to sleep in Iraq in 2004-2005 than what this hotel had to offer. 300 words can not explain how bad me and my family's bad experience at this hotel.

          The whole place was terrible do not recommend to anyone to stay at

          We were traveling and staying mainly at Best Westerns, which may have spoiled us. Room was confirmed a week in advance, but when we arrived it was not recorded in the system. Room was small. In order to close the bathroom door you had to slide it, but there was no handle on the door (inside), which made it difficult to close. Tried to reach the desk by phone at 9pm, finally went down to desk, there was no one there. If visiting New Orleans again we would pay more to stay closer to Bourbon street.

          Good location close to the French Quarter and public transport. Our first room was not up to scratch but the lady at reception change it immediately when I informed her of the issues. Really good breakfast options provided with the room rate. Washing machine and dryer also a bonus as we were travelling for a long time and needed these facilities every so often.

          First room had a massive wet patch and it smelt like urine but couldn't confirm this. Second room was ok apart from the leaking shower and massive cockroach that turned up one night. Had to improvise with the shower so ok in the end.

          The location was near my seminar, the price. The front dest clerk was courtious and friendly.

          My key didn't work when I got to the room with my luggage I was not made aware that my cell phone would deactivate it. The light above the sink and the side table didn't work, or the remote control for the television.(the back of the remote control was missing)

          The only reasonable thing about this hotel was location. Otherwise the service and hospitality were about the worst I've ever experienced! Very rude and non-caring attitude! We were there to serve them! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and will never stay there again.

          Staff very rude beds horribly uncomfortable parking was a nightmare when told there would be a guaranteed spot multiple people checking in were told they had no room continental breakfast stopped at 9:30 am !?!? floors were cleaned about once a week!

          Location in proximity to Superdome; price relative to other hotels.

          Bed needed replacing. Hotel could not supply non-smoking room requested. Price, even though less than others due to event, was too much for the quality of the room; desk understaffed at check in and check out.

          Staff was nice and the location to Bourbon was good.

          The rooms are small and quite old.

          Rome rate of 355$ (booking six weeks prior) for two weekend nights (4Pers/Room) was ok regarding the max. Average standard of this hotel. If it is just for sleeping and for one or two nights it is ok. It is in W.alking distance to Bourbon Street and also not far to the rest of the French Quarter

          Parking fee of 20$ (which is already excessive high) was raised up to 25$ because of the ongoing Jazzfest in town. That is really ridiculous.

          We enjoyed the extra large shower in the room. I normally can't turn around in a hotel shower because its combined with a tub. Great call not having a tub. Most people don't use them. The parking was extremely convenient and the breakfast was fantastic. The tables were always clean and the food selection was first rate. We also liked that we were walking distance to the French Quarter and didn't have to deal with the noise and congestion that comes with the pricey hotels in that area.

          The TV quality/reception wasn't very good but we weren't in the room that much anyway. The fitness room needs a new treadmill. Besides having a skip in it the program functions didn't work properly.

          Cleanliness of hotel

          Check in person was great. Chek out person acted if she was unsure of her job. I had paid for parking for the previous night and asked if I could leave the car in the parking lot until 4:00 in the after noon and she was vague on what to say to me. She fianally said ok.
