This hotel is in the Garden District of New Orleans right across the street from a large hospital and many medical buildings. So parking is tight and the area a bit crowded. But the hotel had it all. It was a bit on the "compact" side but neat, clean and modern. We received a "clicker" to allow the gate to open to get into the parking lot. Once all clickers are given out, that means there are no more spots in the lot so overflow has to park across the street in the municipal lot. However, the hotel validates your parking ticket and there is no charge to you. To enter the hotel from the gated parking lot, you must walk up a short narrow alley, but once you enter the building, you are in a carpeted hallway leading to a well stocked lobby. The lobby can also be accessed from the front of the building off the main street. Coffee, fruity water and oranges are out all day along with cookies in the evening. Plenty of seating is available in the lobby with a large book of restaurant menus as well as things to do. The room was small, but, again, complete. We had 2 beds, a full bathroom, desk, all the things you expect and all neat and clean. The trolly stop was right across the street so getting into the downtown area was easy, and the only way to go as traffic and parking downtown isn't easy. Breakfast was well stocked with the usual breakfast items, muffins, toast, pastry, cereal and fruit in addition to eggs and sausage. It was a perfect, convenient place to stay. less
