We stayed for two nights over French Quarter Festival weekend as hotels in town were just too expensive. Took around 25 minutes to drive in to the French Quarter from the hotel. This is a newer hotel in a good location close to the freeway (but not too close to be disturbed by traffic) and a short drive to local eateries. El Paso Mexican restaurant does great food! Front desk staff were great, really friendly and helpful and cookies and coffee in the lobby were a nice touch.
Our room was excellent, very spacious and clean and the beds were so comfortable and large. Nice toiletries but unfortunately these didn't get replaced on the second day so we had to go and ask for more. Wifi worked well. Pool area was clean and inviting with chairs and recliners. Only complaint is that outside our top floor room there was a small patio area with a table and chairs which encouraged a rather noisy group to sit outside our room drinking and talking until late in the evening until we asked them to keep the noise down. After they had gone the room was quiet.
First morning breakfast was excellent with a really great choice of hot and cold food, really couldn't complain about a thing. Unfortunately the second morning wasn't so good. Arrived for breakfast at 9.15am (breakfast is apparently served until 10am) to find pancake machine turned off, bacon had run out and the cartons of milk in the fridge were out of date (fortunately our daughter smelled the milk before using it otherwise we wouldn't have even thought to need to check the date!).
Overall we had a mostly excellent stay and I would recommend this hotels to others looking for an inexpensive alternative to paying the high prices in town. less
