Walking around the French Quarter from the hotel is very convenient and quick. The room was nice, French rustic-like and kinda romantic with a wrought iron balcony over-looking Dauphine Street and a very nice courtyard behind locked gate and wall... but; the room didn't have a working coffee maker and the unit they brought us to replace it had a mold covered old wet bag still in it from the last user! Two of the lamps in the room did not work, we thought due to missing light bulbs but we discovered after swapping bulbs with other fixtures it was actually faulty electric outlets! YIKES! The lights went on and off randomly and untouched. They never brought us any replacement bulbs (but we didn't need them regardless). There were no where near enough working electric outlets located in the room that we could access for us to plug in our phones and have lights. The one chair in the room was scary to even think about touching or sitting in. Lord only knows what must have happened to it over the years. Upholstery cleaning it would be a minimum, replacement time is long overdue. The windows, though beautiful and charming, where in very, very bad need of cleaning, inside and out. I'd speculate they had not been cleaned in many, many, many years. The mattress on the bed was great! FYI, it is memory foam and some people take some getting used to them. There was no blanket in the room and no extra pillows. Be aware it is $55 per night extra (including tax) to park your vehicle. All in all the room was not worth the $500 we spent for two nights... it could have easily been a lot better experience and worth it with a little more care and attention from the management. We stayed here years ago and came back because of the location. Maybe not next time around.

Our stay was very disappointing. The room we had was nothing like the pictures on the site. The little door window we had looked out to the brick wall. The 1 a/c vent blew cold air on the sofa, nothing close to the bed. The TV in the room faced the sofa and did not turn to watch in bed. And had to turn it on and off for the screen to come on. Only sound at first. The shower had a trickle of water coming out of the head. The door to the bathroom was wide enough to walk sideways through. Not to mention the sound of banging and loud noises that were coming from downstairs. (like a car elevator going up and down all night long)
