GREAT!!! central New Orleans location. RESPONSIVE management:) Safe/secure building. VERY comfortable bed. Sparkling clean room. EASY access to ALL freeways, shopping, food. Twice we parked in neighborhood near Carrollton/Claiborne took St. Charles street car at beginning of run for $1.25 down to Canal/Bourbon Street!!! Locals tip: neighborhood street parking is "free" within 1-2 blocks at beginning of street car run Carrollton/Claiborne Avenues...this way you park in nice neighborhoods and get early pick of seats because street car can get very crowded as it heads towards St.Charles Avenue/French Quarter. My only Ben Louie gripe: More wall shelving for clothes is needed for longer stays like us. I will most certainly stay at Ben Louie again:)

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating but only available 6hrs per day. Bring everything you need the room has a fridge no microwave. But it's convenient to everything. I recommend this place if you can a no frills stay.

Good looking and clean room

Pros: Very clean, newly and newly renovated in a tasteful way. The bed was very comfortable.
Cons: The heating unit was too loud.
Location: Not a neighborhood to visit but was a short Uber ride to downtown while our car was securely parked in their gated area.
It was a ten except for the loud heating unit. The noise overwhelmed the TV and would fire up every four minutes after a lull. However, the room was clean, comfortable, newly renovated and with all the amenities. Parking was safe, secure and free.

As we pulled up to the hotel the cab driver said that this was a bad place. We paid the fare and he left. A couple of people were sitting on the ground outside their rooms and had obviously been doing hardcore drugs. Looking around the neighborhood it was a very depressed area and very unsafe; even in daytime. I am disappointed in travelocity for partnering with this establishment.
