Located in the Garden District, you’re 75 feet from the nearest streetcar stop to take you east towards downtown or west towards Tulane. You’re also a 4-5 block walk to Magazine St. with its shops and restaurants.
Our room was comfortable although there was a noticeable mildew/musty smell to the room. The room had two sinks and vanities which made getting ready to head out much easier for my wife and I, without having to dance around one another over the usual one sink/mirror. I don’t know if all rooms come with this feature.
The hotel is pet-friendly which is great if you’re traveling with your pet, and not so great if you have allergies or if you’re in the room next door to the dog with separation anxiety and barks for hours (fortunately our room was at least two rooms away and we couldn’t hear the barking in our room).
A complimentary breakfast buffet is provided with scrambled eggs, potatoes, waffles, limited fresh fruit, bakery items, and cereal/oatmeal. Seating is limited.
There is limited gated free parking behind the hotel – maybe 10-15 spaces that fill up quickly. Fortunately the hotel has an arrangement with a parking garage about a block away such that parking is still free. Parking on the street is difficult, at best.
Staff are friendly and courteous. We would stay here again should we return to the area. less

Thank you for reviewing your stay! I'm glad you enjoyed New Orleans.
Most of rooms do come with the two sinks. Everyone tells us that they really do make a difference in the morning while getting ready!
You are right about finding convenient street parking being difficult. Luckily, parking is included in our rate. Both of our parking options are nearby and convenient.
We hope to see you the next time you visit New Orleans!
