Positive Reviews

Peaceful yet convenient location.

The hotel is located in the French Quarter yet it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle meaning that guests could enjoy peaceful and quiet evenings. Being only a short walk away from Bourbon Street, guests were able to reach all the attractions on foot as well as visit the local restaurants and cafes which were all within walking distance of the hotel.

Lots of places to relax and unwind.

Some of the rooms feature balconies and many said that sitting outside whilst admiring the views was the highlight of their stay. The courtyard and the garden complete with tropical plants has plenty of seating areas where guests can enjoy a few drinks in the shade or soak up the rays on the comfortable poolside loungers.

Friendly and attentive staff.

The front-desk staff have been described as approachable and helpful with many guests stating they were made to feel welcome and at ease. Many appreciated the help offered by the staff such as printing out maps and boarding passes as well as offering advice about the local area.

Negative Reviews

Dated interiors.

Some of the guests said that the decor in the rooms was rather tired and dated and objected to the old-fashioned furniture and upholstery which were said to be showing their age. Bathrooms were also said to be in need of modernisation with very basic fixtures and fittings.

Lack of hospitality trays in rooms.

Although complimentary coffee is available in the lobby, some guests objected to not having coffee making facilities in their rooms so that they could make themselves a hot drink first thing in the morning.

Issues with plumbing.

Guests reported various plumbing issues such as not being able to control the temperature of the shower, slow draining sinks and also low pressure.
