So-so

The lobby was awful. However, they are under construction. Very, very confusing to get to our room. The breakfast included should be eliminated if going to serve green bananas and sugar breads. The sheets were nice and clean and the maids and doormen were great

You get what you pay for

Though the location is nice, the hotel felt run down. My room did not have an external window, and there was barely enough room to unpack. The shower had really crummy water pressure, which is a pet peeve of mine, and the walls were very thin. I could hear everything going on in the hall and the rooms around me. Having said that, it was pretty cheap and the location was good. IF you don't plan on spending much time in the room at all, it's acceptable. The free internet was nice, though I feel like you end up paying for it anyway since virtually every hotel in downtown New Orleans charges you a $10 a night resort fee on top of the advertised rate.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Root and Cochon are two great restaurants in the warehouse district. If you like meat, go there. John Besh's restaurant, August, was a bit overrated. The food was good, but nothing wowed, and for the prices they charge, you expect to be wowed. Try his more modestly priced restaurant Luke instead. They have happy hour from 3-6 with half price wine and beer and 50-cent oysters. The oysters are better and cheaper than Acme (which always has a long line even though it's nothing special).

The hotel was close to the things

The hotel was close to the things we wanted to see in New Orleans. The reception staff could have been far friendlier - it should not be too hard to smile.. Breakfast was fantastic and included in the price for the night which was a nice surprise.
