Beautiful Ambiance


This hotel was lovely. Convenient location in the French Quarter. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The Desire restaurant was great for breakfast. The Jazz Playhouse has different entertainment nightly. Lovely evening enjoying oysters, champagne, and music in the convenience of our own hotel.

Housekeeping issues. Sand or dirt by side of my bed. Stayed there all 3 days of stay. Room never vacuumed apparently. Then we had to call desk twice within 1 hour plus as we didn't get any wash cloths after room was tended to. Took awhile. Then my wife went to take a shower in the morning and couldn't get hot water to come out. For the money this was disappointing.
