My room was beautiful, the location perfect, right in the middle of the French Quarter. Great view from my window. Staff was wonderful. I would return again and again.

The hotel is in a good location but the pictures do not really depict an accurate representation of the hotel. It is old (I knew that part) and it has not been maintained very well. It was definitely an experience that was more disappointing than I had hoped for.
