We were a short walk to the French quarter and likewise a short walk to the Superdome. The staff did a great job of looking after us. Pernella on the front desk in particular gave us a great welcome each and every time we entered or left the hotel & made sure we had all the info we needed to make the most of our stay. It’s a no frills hotel but served the purpose and the friendliness really made all the difference. Read less

The room was large, comfortable, and impeccably clean. All the amenities of a good hotel were available. The only down side was the lack of a good breakfast selection within the hotel. However, there's an iHop right around the corner. The staff were friendly and professional. All in all, very highly recommended.

Even with the flood water residuals, the visit was really nice. The hotel staff was very accommodating. The staff was visible and ready to serve. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. I loved the shower it was very roomy. I would recommend this hotel to other visitors.

Nicole, who appears to be the Food & Beverage Manager, has very poor customer service and personal conduct. She chose to close the kitchen (at least) 10 minutes early and then refused to serve a customer that arrived 8 minutes prior to the advertised closing time.

Nicole, who appears to be the Food & Beverage Manager, has very poor customer service and personal conduct. She chose to close the kitchen (at least) 10 minutes early and then refused to serve a customer that arrived 8 minutes prior to the advertised closing time. When I asked her why she won’t serve food while we were still before the closing time she expressed no regard for my request to eat, offered no solutions to my hunger, and boldly stated that she doesn’t care while slamming the door in my face. She seemed very busy and appeared to be having a bad night. She tried to explain that this is why she closed early, but that’s no excuse to deviate from policy and let customers go hungry. As a manager, I would expect her to have the discipline to work through the hurdles of the day and put in the effort required to maintain the hotel’s reputation by simply staying open the minimum required hours. I wasn’t asking her to go above and beyond policy, just meet the minimum standard. Overall, she behaved very rudely and set a poor example for the other employees on the property. Read less
