    The room is spacious and the bed comfortable, matched with great services, luxurious design, and proximity to downtown attractions. The doorman also helps you hail a taxi that costs $15 per person to the airport, greatly appreciated on a busy day.

    It is located on the famous Bourbon Street, and it could be both lively and noisy outside at night. The hotel has very good sound proofing though, so it doesn't affect the sleep quality.
