              This is the only place that I stayed. I remember leaving my phone charger connected to the plug. When I called the next day, they said it was not turned in. I know without a doubt that I left it there.

              Glenn with the concierge service was helpful in giving information about places to visit in New Orleans. The rooms were clean and the staff were courteous. The location was also good for visiting most tourist attractions.

              Not much of a complaint, but the beds were softer and may not be for someone who likes beds with a firmer mattress.

              Loved the location. Just across the street from Bourbon street. In the heart of downtown. The rate for hotel was great considering location

              Did not like that parking was not provided. Had to pay for parking wished they would have at least provided some hotel discount for parking

              I really liked the location of the hotel. It was also very nice and the staff was friendly for the most part. I do not have any complaints.

              The price of room service. $25 for two scoops of ice cream is insane.

              Person at counter did not know party in my group paid for their room evening before. I paid in am again in am. Our friends advised us they had paid night before. Hopefully I don't get double charged on my credit card.
