    Nice stay

    Everything was lovely! The disappointing thing was that bottled water was not supplied for guests and was SEVEN dollars for 1 bottle at the hotel desk and coffee bar.

    Good central location

    The hotel was lovely. The parking fee was outrageous, my husband had to drive the car around the block to the parking garage.. And he had to go get it when we left. Not what I call valet parking.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Unfortunately never again!

    There was no housekeeping service so had to ask for everything. No water was provided; that’s very rare. A sign said we could get water for $7 a bottle. Other places gave us as many as we wanted free of charge. We had several issues that we reported to them that seemed to land on deaf ears and weren’t addressed until we finally spoke with a manager on the floor the night before checkout. Jeffrey was very apologetic and impressive and managed to get someone up to address the issues but most weren’t resolved. Our sink had no water pressure and the stopper didn’t work. In the shower, water accumulated around our feet and the water temp lever was loose so couldn’t regulate the temp properly. Tried several times to report these issues with no resolution. Also asked for a blanket one evening; it never came. It’s also very noisy at this Bourbon Street location so we don’t intend to stay here again.

    Overall Okay but beds aren’t comfortable

    Stay 4 nights and it was a great location right on Bourbon Street. Pros the hotel beautiful and has nice pool area and restaurants. We could not here all the activity outside in our room. They also have security at the door at night so no trespassing occurs which is nice to make you feel safe. Mask are required in hotel but people don’t really do. The cons beds are not comfortable and the receptionist employee not really friendly.

    Service was just so so. Limited housekeeping. Room was ok but bed was a queen, not a king as advertised. Balcony door outside keycard lock was not functional. Desire was great one day and not so great the next. Overall ok, but many minor issues.

    Decent Hotel, Overpriced

    Overall the hotel was decent however overpriced in terms of what you get. The hotel needs renovations and the rooms are quite small. If anything, it may be worth it to get a balcony facing Bourbon however the interior rooms aren't much. Meh/10
