Great location. Spacious one bedroom. Only thing to be aware of is that you are in the heart of downtown and there is street noise (streetcar specifically) so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper!
Wonderful property which was better than expected. Safe, secure and clean. Literally one block away from all of the action. I will definitely stay here again. Everything that you could need was available. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Overall, it was a great stay, with some comments for improvement
Overall, this is a positive review.
The condo was very spacious. The kitchen had just about everything we needed, a coffee maker, a large refrigerator and a microwave. You get your money's worth compared to any hotel room.
There's a mart right across the street where you can conveniently get things you may need to add like milk and sugar for your morning coffee. We were only blocks from the French Quarter so I could walk to my conference hotel.
The bathroom was nice, and I noticed that both the toilet and the shower had handicap rails for those who might need them. There was plenty of space in the bedroom, the bathroom, and the closet.
There was also a combo washer dryer with Tide pods that was convenient, and televisions in both the main living room area and the bedroom that both had screens of good size.
To improve, it would have been really nice if they supplied a roll of paper towels. I had to clean up one small spill with toilet paper. The bathroom water temperature sometimes fluctuated, and there was no bar for the towels in the bathroom. It once was there, and the marks on the wall were quite noticeable.
The bed was quite large, but a new mattress was really required. You could see the bow in the mattress from the other side of the condo, but in fairness, it did not interfere with my sleep.
The security staff was pleasant and engaging. Especially since the city was still in full recovery mode from Mardi Gras. It's clear that they were exhausted, but that didn't diminish their professionalism.
All things considered, I'd come back.

larger than I expected, great location
location and space great--we had a good time
some critique-- poor lighting, lots of street noise, and a bit dusty
Great location and space
Want to first say that the location of this hotel couldn't get much better if you are trying to stay close to the French Quarter (bourbon street) and yet want to come back to a quiet place to sleep. It also helped that this place was about 5 times the size of a nearby hotel for about the same price per night. Overall I really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it to other people looking to visit. I was worried that showing up later in the night to check in would cause problems but it was honestly such a breeze and we were in our room before we knew it. Only complaint there is that you only get one standard key with a little wristlet. This was sometimes inconvinient if our group wanted to split up. The building is very nice including the rooftop pool (which is heated), exercise room, and saunas which are in the men and women's lockerooms.
There were however a few things that could be improved... We stayed in room 703 and it did not exactly match the pictures shown in the ad...but was still fairly nice. (Just not decorated as well as in the pictures) The king bed was plenty comfortable and I did not feel any springs in my back as I read in another review. However it did look a little broken in the middle on the lower frame. The sofa bed on the other hand needs a lot of attention if they want to advertise this place as sleeping 4 people. This thing had seen some abuse and looked like some of the supports near the foot of the pull out bed were broken. This made it a far less comfortable stay for my friends that had to sleep on the disfigured bed.
There were also several large windows in this room that let ALOT of light in during the day which can be bad if you stayed out till 4 a.m...like we did.... So I would highly recommend the owners get blackout shades or some good drapes to make it more comfortable to sleep during the morning hours when the sun is up.
Other than those things we really did enjoy our stay and if you are thinking about booking you really should! If someone is planning on sleeping on the pullout bed though be prepared for some discomfort if they don't fix it up. Even an air mattress would be a nice fix to this problem.
I went to visit New Orleans with 3 girlfriends from college. Location was great, walking distance from almost anywhere we wanted to go. Amenities were great - the full kitchen and pool was amazing to have.
