Where the hotel is really is a must. Loved the shower style and the jazz club
It’s supposed to be a 4 star but the cleaning really isn’t matching the standards. The food is expensive and poor. Too expensive for what it really is
Loved the hotel, the location was great but being on Bourbon Street did mean noise at night so our preference next time would be to stay closer to the french market. But that’s just our preference, everything else about the hotel was amazing.
It was close what what my parents wanted..
The shotty patch work, the keys were giving us issues.. also if you dont like/care for loud music do not stay on bourbon or conti.. 3 years ago I stayed on beinville, it was pretty quiet!
