Service - First the good: great location! Very close to Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, Frenchmen Street and the French market. The bad: absolutely horrible service in the bar and the restaurant. I waited for 30 minutes just to have my breakfast order taken and another 25 to get it. The servers acted overwhelmed and frustrated. The bartender did exactly the same thing later in the day. I ended up just walking out. Assistance at check in? Non-existent! If you have any physical challenges that make it difficult walking up to the porch or down the few marble stairs to the elevator, you won't find anyone to help. No one! Room is quite small and almost impossible to use the closet since a bed is positioned less than a few inches from it.

The hotel was charming but the rooms are very dated. Carpets were worn, bathrooms had mildew. Linens and towels were clean but dingy. Bed spread had a rip in it. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast/lunch room served good food.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The bar was fun and everyone was very helpful. However, on our last night at the hotel, we saw a cockroach crawling across the tv stand in our room. Super freaked us out, so couldn’t sleep when we needed to be up early for our departing flight.
