nice place with charter

the staff could not be more helpful. The only negative is you can hear doors closing from the rooms around you. Location is excellent to the French Quarter.

Loved it and would definitely stay here again

The staff was friendly from the desk clerk to the housekeeping staff. The room was the cleanest I have stayed in in recent memory. Location was excellent, with attractions and restaurants within walking distance. Parking is convenient. Can't say enough good things about this hotel.

Book it direct?

They said the room reservation was not guaranteed because it was booked thru Orbitz and not a direct booking. They gave me the room but made it seem like it was a big favor. The parking structure adjoining the hotel is not the hotel garage, which is a little further away and cost $22 for one day.
