Location to bourbon street was great. Easy to get around to other neighborhoods. Construction outside our balcony room was unpleasant.

This was a nice place to stay. Bourbon street was loud for Halloween so I am very glad we had a room with balcony on a side street. Clean place, central to everything!

Great Hotel-Although on Bourbon Street the late night noise was not excessive--if your are looking for QUIET after 12, this is not the place. But if you want close access to Bourbon Street and are OK with the slight din of late night partying, this place is awesome! The fragrance in the lobby is amazing, the temp is cool and snuffs out any of the Bourbon Street "aura" whenever you walk in! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
