the location the staff should learn how to smile and be friendly with their customers.
Top notch hotel and facilities. The front desk clerk could have been nicer, but overall it was a great stay.
Excellent room service. The carousel bar was fun. It's located in a prime location. N/A
This hotel has the perfect location for a tourist travel in New Orleans, one street away from Bourbon street and a few blocks from Jackson square. The Hotel has also the best house keeping I ever had in the USA. They really think of everything. Unfortunately breakfast was not included in the price although this could easily be foreseen.
The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The location is excellent; within easy walking distance of dozens of restaurants, Bourbon Street, art galleries, grocery stores, even a drug store 1/2 block away. No.
Location. We had a bad problem with people smoking on our floor and it was a non-smoking hotel. I complained several times but the staff did nothing except spray air freshener. I came home with a sinus infection from all the second-hand smoke.
hotel was really nice . valet parking was not so good it took 30 minutes to retrieve my car. valet parking
Wished we could have checked into room right away when we arrived. Still, hotel did make a real effort to have the room available within a couple of hours.
Monteleone is marvelous and I will come again. My only criticisms are 1. It is not fully handicap accessible 2. The bathrooms are nice but small and dated, no walk in showers 3. Bedrooms are small by modern standards (limited to 2 to a room comfortably. Restaurant, entertainment, bars, service par excellence, cleanliness, doormen extraordinarily helpful( (we needed extra assistance and always received what we needed and more)
essence festival n/a
The hotel location was fantastic walk out the door to all the restaurants, night life etc., Bathroom very clean. Great Bar down stairs. The Old world charm of this Hotel is really nice.
I liked its atmosphere of a first class european hotel, the very good taste shown in the decoration of the room as well as the elegance of the reception area. During our stay the used soap and shampoo were not replaced when the roorm was made,
The staff was awesome, every person we encountered at the front desk and valet was in a great mood and extremely helpful.
The door separating the bedroom from the living room area. The bathroom was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable
Nice suite style room, good staff, location They were performing some work to the facade of the hotel. At 9:00 am they were literally right outside our room pounding with hammers. I looked out the window and a worker on scaffolding was right outside of our window. Had my girlfriend been in a state of disrobe, he would have been able to tell were all of her freckles are. 9:00am....on a Saturday....in New Orleans....in the Quarter. I had been out late drinking the night before, so you can imagine a 9:00 wake up call with a hammer was most unexpected....and un-welcome. No mention of the construction was made during our check in.
We found a roach in our room the first day. When we told the woman at the front desk, she was nice and apologetic, but said it happens when there's rain. I understand, having dealt with roach in my apartment, but asked her to have the room sprayed, and wondered why that wasn't the default answer. The water stank. It smelled like putrid pond water, like it came from the river or Lake Ponchartrain. It was hard water too, so rinsing in the sink or shower is a long chore that never seems possible to finish. I believe this is what made the tub slimy and slippery. It didn't appear dirty, but it was impossible to stand in the shower without a wash cloth underfoot. The hotel is located on the 2nd-6th floors in the Ritz Carlton. The Ritz locks their doors in the evening, but the key readers don't allow Courtyard guests in, so you need to go around the block to get inside. Either way, it's a maze of elevators, since you always need to take at least 2 elevators to get to your room. The Ritz spa smells like an over-chlorinated YMCA pool, and permeates the entire lower floor. Coupled with the arctic air conditioning, coming in from the outside is a violent jolt with a mild burning sensation in the nose. And it's $25/person/day for the privilege of immersing yourself in the water.
The location was great: close enough to Bourbon and Canal Streets so I was near the action, but removed enough so that noise was not a problem. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had very good water pressure. Housekeeping heads for the hills around 2 or so, so if your room is made by then you are out of luck.
Great rooms that are well designed for accommodating multiple family members
Great staff and location
My friends and I ended up here last minute when our original plans to stay somewhere else didn't pan out. We were a little stressed when we got there given that we were far from home in California and had to find this place last minute in an unknown city. But from the valet to the front desk, the staff was super friendly and helpful and made it so easy for us. Our room was clean and well decorated. In fact, the whole hotel is very nice and a great value for your money. On top of that, it's in the perfect location in the French quarter. if I ever find myself in New Orleans again, I'll definitely be staying here. There was only one thing and very minor. Being that it is the French quarter and so close to bourbon street, my friends and I had a late night. We knew we were going to want to sleep in and take our time getting ready in the morning, so I called the front desk to see about a late check-out. They said It was perfectly fine we just had to put the do not disturb sign on the door and be out by 1. At 10:45, housekeeping came knocking on the door. We yelled no thank you and then we could hear her talking to another employee about how we weren't supposed to be there. Then at 12:30, they came back again as we were preparing to leave. It wasn't a huge deal, but I think maybe the late check-out policy should be better communicated with the cleaning staff.
The hotel is right around the corner from Bourbon St, which made it very convenient.
Hotel was very nice and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Everything in French Quarter was a short walk including Jackson Square. Would stay here again.
Friendly staff, very close to Bourbon Street. No locks on bedroom and bathroom doors
We were right in the middle of everything. All we had to do was walk out of the hotel and we were right there. The rooms were awesome. Way more than I was expecting. The staff was great. We will definitely have them on the top of our list when we return. Nothing
don't like add on cost. Telephone ect.
My friend and I were staying here for a conference (at a nearby hotel). It was a beautiful hotel very chic and stylish. It was well placed to walk to the French Quarter and many other points of interest. Staff was very kind, hospitable and helpful, especially Michael. We would definitely stay there again! No cold water from the tap in our room.
Old fashion style was cool Rooms smelt "old" and muggy, check-in was extremely late (4 PM) and apparently "ungarunteed" (some people waited 2 hours), parking was $42 a night (extremely unreasonabled to other hotels), no bell hop even though rooms were split between streets
Comfortable bed, great staff, very friendly Terrible water pressure
Employees were generally happy and gladly answered any questions. Hotel is groovy and quaint, as are the rooms.
Good quality decor good location. Very rude staff on front desk.
convience of location the TV stations, the bed, and the AC
The Staff was great very helpful
Location was great, 3 min. walk from French Quarter. Description made it sound nicer than it was, my room was fairly run down and the fitness centre had no cleanser or water cups. But it was inexpensive so for the price it was fine. I couldn't recommend it to people though.
the hotel was close to everything, and it was nice. the heater didnt work and theres 2 buildings and you had to go to the main building for everything.
Convience to the downtown area and central location to restaurants and entertainment. Parking was very easy and convient. Coffee pot in room was not cleaned.
Parking lot behind the hotel was very convenient. Comfortable rooms. Closet to everything but still off the major streets Staff wasn't knowledgable when asked what highlights a touris couple should see. Wasn't friendly during check in or check out
Wonderful service, comfortable and clean. Great location for us. Would love to stay there again. No cold water from faucet
The bell hops were nice and that's about all I can say nice about the place. When we got there they couldn't find our reservation. They put us in a tiny room. (We paid extra for a corner executive king.) After 4 hours the room was still at 80 degrees. We were moved to a corner executive king (what we should had have from the beginning.) We called down to the front desk for a bottle opener waited 2 hours they never brought it up. The pool was dirty and disgusting. They claim its a 4 star hotel but we will never stay here again. We should have gone to the double tree.
I liked the room and where the hotel was located I paid too much and was constantly dealing with hassles like slow elevators, stupid rules, staff that lied about a room being available. We paid $310 for a room and $42 to park and couldn't get free Wifi, really? The Valets were rude and they basically forced me to use baggage handlers.
The location is very convenient -- on Canal right between the French Quarter and the CBD. The rooms and facilities are very comfortable and well appointed. There was nothing lacking. What really separates this hotel, though, is the staff. From the front desk people, to the people on the door, to housekeeping, to the valets, everyone was amazingly friendly and helpful. A very positive attitude permeates this hotel. I certainly would stay again. The only negative aspects were that the hotel's front (on Canal) is undergoing a major renovation which makes it hard to find the hotel from Canal and, sort of related to this, the actual front desk/check in area is not on Canal at all. It's on Common. I understand the hotel wanting a Canal address, but it does make it confusing to find the check-in area.
Not as expected for a JW
Nice and clean. Close to the main attraction. Noise when trying to sleep. Air vents would slam down making a loud noise and jolted me awake all night. Out of items more than once when ordering room service. Cold pool with no hot tub.
Location was great and felt very safe. Room were the right size and they were lovely and moved us up to a top floor because it was my daughter's first trip to NOLA Pipes broke the last night and our room had wet carpet; they moved us once I reported it
Lovely hotel, very pretty. Restaurant is great as well. Nothing
We stay here everytime we come to New Orleans. We love the location and the service has yet to disappoint. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.
Clean, modern amenities. Comfortable beds. Lots of young adults stayed during the weekend and they were up and loud at all hours if the night. Hanging out in the hallways and keeping us up.
staff was great, decor was very nice, great bed and linens... the shower/tub combo wasn't bad, but it would be really nice if it were an upgraded glass door shower. not a complaint... but that's something i do look for in a hotel where i pay this much. thanks!
Great location and staff. The valet parking crew was very professional and courteous. Olga at the bar was a pleasure to talk too. I liked the modern decor as well. I would recommend this hotel most of the time. Walls are thin--I could hear people talking on both sides of my room. I imagine it has something to do with being an old building. Fortunately it didn't last long, however, if you are there for any kind of festival where there will be a lot of late night partying (it's near Bourbon street so this may happen quite a bit), I'd recommend being one of them instead and not assuming a good night sleep.
Room was nice and clean and updated, staff was very friendly There's no pool at this hotel like kayak claims
Very friendly staff helpful A bar in the lobby would be great but not essential.
The staff were friendly Very misleading. We booked our room and received an email 2 days later saying we would have to have an economy room, they said it just meant it was smaller. They failed to mention it has no windows and was not much bigger than my walk in closet at home. Instead of the queen bed she told me it had it was actually a double bed. To close the bathroom door you had to step to the side of the toilet and to get in bed you had to climb in from the end of the bed on one side because it was nearly touching the wall.
Location was awesome! Close to the french quarter without being right in the middle of it. It's lighted all around so walking even at 4am didn't feel too dangerous. Parking is 35 a night but it's New Orleans so that's expected and they charge you an amenity fee of 12 a night for a wifi that doesn't work very well. Make sure to ask for an exterior room because I got put in a room without any windows and that was a bummer.
Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Parking was 3 blocks away
Great location, close to bourbon Small room with no window!
The staff was awesome! Donna and Travis rock! Really liked the atmosphere, location and rooms. We'll definitely stay there again!
GREAT LOCATION - Wow. It was close to everything we wanted, everything we didn't know we wanted, but still managed to be quiet at night. Housekeeping was very attentive and helpful, as were the concierges and lobby staff. I'll be coming back!
Location. The hotel is proximity to the all important thing to do, visit and eat. Nothing much.
It was close to french quarter, the ac was amazing, it was close to canal st without being right on it. the hotel was nice looking and the little workout room had good equipment in it but limited. The elevator broke and we had to walk up 8 flights of stairs, the staff was kinda rude when they over changed us for parking, the maid didn't empty our trash and we had to bring it down ourselves bc the food started smelling, the entrance to the hotel is on a road where at night there are many homeless and shady people it's kind of scary, so you end up walking around the longer way to avoid it, there is only beverage vending in the workout room, the being and curtains had stains on them.
The Hotel is very conveniently situated a block from the French Quarter, very close to Bourbon St, Harrad's Casino and within a short walking distance of numerous New OrleansHotel is very clean and modern, and the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to get visitors situated in the room , while caring for everyone's needs. All this despite the crush of Mardis Gras crowds.For me, I really appreciated getting into my room 3 1/2 hrs ahead of check in. Since 2009, I've stayed here about a dozen times at various times of the year, and each visit has been excellent. They charge a daily Amenity / Spa fee of $11.9r. Previous years, it has been as high as almost $22 a day. Thier Spa is a tiny workout room and a tiny business center ( a computer desk, telephone and a desktop PC, tucked away somewhere in the building. Never been used by me.
Love the architecture.
Location, Value, Staff. We walked to the Riverwalk Outlets, Dragos, Harrahs Casino, Aquarium. We got a cab ride to the French Quarter and Bourbon St. The hotel was very clean and the suite was very spacious with 2 TV's. I loved the rich history of the building. It was originally a bank and still has the vault, teller service windows, etc on the lobby. VERY noisy. I could hear a lot of hallway noise. Also, it may have just been the night we stayed (Thursday) but at 4:30 AM the city came down Poydras to empty the dumpsters (very loud) and it woke the toddler (sigh). That can possibly be chalked up to wrong place, wrong time but just be aware if you're staying on a Thursday night. Parking was too expensive but to be fair that's ALL hotels in the area. The hotel was once a bank so there are very few (if any) extras...no roomservice, no spa, etc.
Clean and comfortable room that was a great value for the money.
The architecture, design, choice of furnishings and keeping the existing bank for a backdrop is a nice touch. The room (610) was quite nice and comfortable. The staff were all very professional but Jo Ann in the bar was wonderful. The only improvement possible would be the in-hotel restaurant. To be quite frank, the quality was not so good and the portions small when compared to every other place we dined in and around the French Quarter of equal or lesser price. Your meal pricing (we first tried breakfast and then stopped-) was also at the top of the cost range we experienced in and outside the French Quarter. Had the quality and quantity been better we would have happily spent more time in your restaurant. In our opinion, correct this and you'll have the perfect hotel.
Decent location, clean, nice bathrooms. Of the three prepaid rooms our group booked far in advance, only two were available and there was no roll-away bed available for the room in which three people were staying. One couple in our group had to take a taxi across town after about 20-30 minutes of searching for an open room. One person in the room sans roll-away bed had to sleep on the floor. The following day, another room was made available, however, no one from the hotel informed the group in the room without the roll-away that they needed to more their belongings until after everyone was out and about for the day. The hotel called us throughout the day, interrupting our plans. The manager was very rude and didn't seem to understand that the hotel was interfering with plans made months in advance. Eventually, we were bothered so constantly that some members of the group returned to resolve the situation in person. Overall a very bad experience. I have traveled quite a bit, and my experience at this hotel is the worst that comes to mind.
Very helpfull people, very clean, and perfect room All is perfect
The bed was extremely uncomfortable.
Good walking distance to casino, canal, 4 blocks to bourbon st. The sound of traffic soothe me to sleep. Staff unfamiliar with parking garage attached to same building. THE PARKING GARAGE ATTACHED IS NOT OPEN ON WEEKENDS! AND CLOSES AT 9 PM ON WEEKDAYS! $49 charge will be put on card upon check out and supposedly will be returned in a few days if room checks out okay. Contact number goes completely out when trying to call! This building is very difficult to find! Drive back and forth to only be lost over and over again.
I booked this hotel in April 2014 for my trip in November 2014... i confirmed two days before my trip and everything was all set. We arrived and the lady behind the desk said there was a letter that was left for her that stated we needed to be sent to another hotel. No reason given and she wouldn't let us see the letter...ok... so we went to the other hotel which was conveniently located right in the middle of the French quarters... upon arrival we were told that they had no offiliation with the whitney nor do they know why we were sent there...after telling us we had to pay triple what the Whitney charged I explained that was not far to us...i was willing to pay the same rate as the Whitney but I was certainly not paying triple! One of the managers came out and accommodated us with a free night! Therefore I recommend taking your business to the Bourbon Orleans hotel!
The staff was absolutely amazing. The location wasn't bad. Nothing special, but not bad. The rooms were TINY. The furniture in the rooms were pretty chewed up. There really weren't any extra amenities. It's expensive for what you get. For about $10 more, you can get a bigger room at a hotel that is closer to the French Quarter. Yeah, the staff was great, but I don't pay extra for helpful staff.
We just expected a little better than what we got. Expected the sweet to be a little sweeter
I liked the location because it was on the periphery of the French Quarter. It was within easy walking distance of tourist sites, but in a quiet area. The room was average size, attractive. Our room looked out, not to the street, but to the attractive courtyard, where the heated pool was located. Staff were accommodating. Uber drivers seem to have trouble getting onto this section of Toulouse Street. It does not have much seating in the lobby. If you need a place to sit and wait after checkout, this is pretty tight.
Had such a fun time here. The pool is a beautiful area to sit outside. Happy hour in the afternoon is perfect because they come out to the pool to serve you. The room was completely fine with a large bathroom. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for walking around the French quarter! We wish there was a refrigerator in our room.
Close proximity to bourbon street and very friendly staff. Pool was closed and hotel was under construction. 30 plus bucks for valet. That being said i would still recommend the hotel
We were moved to a great room with a balcony. The rooms that do not have a balcony have nice windows that are painted shut.
Location n price Nothing
Children. I wish it was adult only.
Staff Garage and pool under repair
Place was 2 blocks away from bourbon st. And all the fun stuff Hotel was under construction, can't use their pool. Bathroom wasn't very clean and at 11am u start hearing the construction they have going on, which wakes u up and leaves u restless
The room was comfortable, We were not informed the pool and courtyard were under construction. We traveled with my children who were both under 21. They were looking forward to hanging out at the pool. Unfortunately, not this trip.
Location in French Quarter was ideal. Atmosphere pleasant. Check in took hours waiting for a cleaned room. Restaurant at breakfast was understaffed and it took 45 minutes to take our order. And not even offered a second cup of coffee. Poor way to start a day!!
Fabulous room! And really friendly staff. Shower seemed old and did not drain well.
Like? Its 3 blocks from Bourbon St. I normally stay in hotels much closer for just a few dollars more. There was nothing to like about this run down, disgusting place. I only gave it a chance because it was a last minute trip and this one popped up in my search. It is disguised as a pretty, boutique hotel...don't be fooled. We stayed on the 2nd floor. The first night getting off the elevator we had to walk thru vomit to get to our room, not the hotel's fault by any means, however clean up took forever. The double beds, extremely small and old. The pillows, I can't describe, something from the stone age. The bathroom, water leak above shower head in ceiling tiles, apparent water leak under floor tiles. Disgusting smell and stayed wet the entire stay. The second morning, we realized the puke was the least of the hotels problems. The hall carpet between our room and the adjoining room was squishy wet...and the smell was unbelievable. This wasn't a "just happened" issue, they were prepared with a blower just outside our door to dry the carpet. It's not going to dry until the leaks are fixed.. Overall, for the money, pay extra and go elsewhere.
The hotel itself is really nice, especially the patio. The location of the hotel is also excellent The rooms were not really clean. The first room we had was so noisy that we could not sleep. We were then given another room which was quiet.
Location Electrical Disrepair, worn furniture, bad service in restaurant, mechanical problem, all night noise
Near the famous Bourbon St. Dirty room and absence of small fridges in the room
great position and good rate The hotel room could be more clean but it is not bad.
location and friendliness of staff
Great location, helpful staff, clean room, updated bathroom, great courtyards.
Access to Bourbon Street and remainder of French Quarter There is a usage fee and utility fee that has to be paid at the end which really seem like charges that should either be incorporated in to the price of the room or dropped. I read about them online and was prepared. However, other parties checking out at the same time were very suprised. Also, parked for an overnight rate at a garage one block away for less than their garage rate.
I have stayed at the St. Louis before, and it is my personal choice for location, atmosphere, and value in the French Quarter.
The staff was very accomodating in all respects. The location was also very convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. This is a perfect location if you are going to Mardi Gras. The bar was only open until 9 pm which wasn't convenient, but there was a bar at the corner of Bienville and Burbon which was very close.
The staff was the best from start to finish!! I have to give props to house keeping for the amazing job they do, Ms Julie moves through the hotel like greased lightning!! Ms Janet, our concierges, made it possible for us to see as much as possible during our stay and is very knowledgeable about the area and the best tours. Our doormen, King Saloman, Sir Larry and Sir Lawrance , as my husband liked to call them, were friendly, fun and very helpful. From front to back, the staff was amazing. Rooms are clean, comfortable and beautiful. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful, so many choices. Can you tell we loved our stay!!??
It was nice having the proximity of the hotel to multiple attractions.
It was very close to the French Quarter Festival activities. The rooms were nice and we loved having appetizers and drink at the bar after a busy day of activities.
The location Everything has a huge fee associated with it, the valets were unfriendly and purposely gave us bad directions because we used self Park, our room felt like a motel six, the bed didn't have a comforter, when I called they acted unconcerned and sent up a thin scratchy blanket. The tv signal was terrible, the remote was from the 1990's, it literally took 4 seconds to change from one channel to the next. all of the appliances were unplugged. We were scheduled for 3 nights but we cancelled the last two and switched to a bnb in uptown. MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE. The same price when you add up all the extras the Hilton tries to gouge you on.
Close to Riverwalk and restaurants, a short walk from the Quarter Customer service, smell and cleanliness, parking fees, pool
Clean Overnight parking rates are ridiculous over $40 a night
They charged extra for wifi and the gym. I thought this was tacky when paying over $200 a night forms room.
beds were very comfortable! Great location! Clean room. pool was cold its a southern state would be better heated. The refridge hummed the whole time. We had to plug it in when we got to the room. Wifi should be free for all. Its 2016 after all. Some english speaking house keepers would be nice as to have communcation instead of a yes from the staff when they clearly dont understand. maybe offer engllish classes to staff that wants to learn.
Staff was great, especially Kelly at the Front Desk You're being nickled and dimed. Had to get a few pages printed, which were $3.56 each (double-sided) and it came to almost $200 for 50 pages. Wanted to go to the gym, which is an additional $12. The hotel is quite spread out. Going from my room in Building 3 to the gym was a 20 minute walk (and I walk fast). Not a big deal for me, since I considered it part of my cardio workout.
Riverside view, mall access from hotel, cleanliness Pool closed due to weather, could have used a microwave and unclear channels.
We really enjoyed how clean the hotel was. Our room felt comfortable and clean which is a big factor for our hotel stays. We had a horrible experince at check in but the manager that took care of our concerns took great care of us and genually seemed to care. When we were checking in I was not greeted nicely at all. The front desk employee seemed like she was put out by me being there. She was very rude towards me from the jump. I was asking questions about our stay because we are not familiar with the area and where to park and she basically told me to go figure it out myself.
The hotel was in a great location and very walkable to various New Orleans attractions. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They allowed me to change my room to a double queen and check-in early as well as do a late check out until 3 which I appreciated. The room was a nice size for two people. The bathroom wasn't as clean as I would like. There was hair left over from the previous occupant. The blanket was also dirty when I separated it from the sheet.
connected to outlets and cafe du monde! On the river
The staff was excellent. Very friendly and accommodating.
Room service food was not satisfactory, and would not recommend anyone order from there.
People were very friendly and knew how to get someone around the city. Room was very nice. Our room was very hot. We had to get a fan and that didn't help much and I am cold natured. Vent in bathroom did not work and tv controller did not work.
no free parking
Great place to stay
Not much A/ c didn't work had to sweat all night an the price we paid was a rip off
Location. Bed was comfortable. Was able to get early check in. air conditioner sounded like a jet Engine Taking off. Room lighting was terrible. Towels inconveniently placed in bathroom right above the only shelf/counter space.
Good location Few Blocks from Bourbon and Harrahs. Didn't need a cab at all. Booked double queen room. Tiny room Beds looked and slept like twins. Water went cold in shower couple different times. Electric outlets are few and a hassle to get to. Two outlets were loose and plug kept falling out. Free breakfast ends at 9:25 kinda early. Some staff were polite. Mgr on duty was super rude when it came to helping one our friends regarding canceling an extra room booked. Another employee even said the other two managers would've let him cancel but the one on duty gets a kick out of being difficult. Really didn't like that considering we had 3 rooms. One of the two elevators were broken. Had to take stairs a few times. Location is good but would honestly pay the difference to stay at better hotel in the same vicinity.
Free hot breakfast, rooms were clean, on main streets so no walking on sketchy back roads late at night, bed was comfortable and pillows weren't those expensive fluffy pillows that are good for nothing, water pressure was great, shower was nice, staff was friendly, a/c worked great. No cons...
Everyone on the staff was so friendly and sincere about it. They were always will yo help us figure out things to do and where to go. This will not b our last trip to this great hotel! And the ladies who did breakfast were great! Nothing! It was a great week. It is just a well worn place.
Very nice hotel! We had a beautiful corner room with a good amount of space and two comfortable double beds. Breakfast was basic, but great, and the staff was very nice. Clean and a great location! I only have one complaint -- I was frustrated that our towels were changed everyday, even if we hung them up. But otherwise, everything was great!
We had a wonderful stay. The staff were all friendly and helpful, especially John, the Valet. The room was great, and the location of the hotel was too. We will be back! Nothing, except we didn't get to stay longer
I like the fact that it was close to where I wanted to go easy to get around town. The only problem is that someone did call in the middle of the night trying to poach my credit card but they told me about that upon my arival. They've been having problems with someone messing with their customers.
Location was perfect! A short walk to everything, but not so close that there was street noise. I also enjoyed the exposed brick walls, and my corner/wrap-around room was very spacious and full of natural light!! A/C worked great, and the number of towels provided was more than sufficient. Pillows were flat and needed more stuffing in them. The sheets were a bit rough/scratchy.
I like the fact that the hotel staff especially the Front Desk Manager Tashena Johnson helped me out when my credit card was compromised. She did the best she could to make my stay as comfortable as it should have been. The location was great. Not to far from everything attended. I didn't like the way my reservation was not in the system when I arrived and I didn't like the 1:00am phone call asking for authorization...
Malcolm worked at the front. He was extremely sweet and helpful, giving great recommendations on where to go and what to do. He was always very happy and looked like he loved his job, which most people dont look like.
Breakfast was fine, close to the sites Charged me $150 for deposit and still haven't gotten it back.
Great location and staff was wonderful! They picked us out a room on the 8th floor with a beautiful view of Canal Street and the Mississippi River. Will book again on our next trip back to New Orleans.
Our room 1236 was a great room for us! The facilities were great and the staff was lovely. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant and the Wednesday jazz players. We would definitely return the next time we are in town!
We are frequent visitors of the Ritz Carltons and this was the worst facility I've ever been to and service was poor. I was paying $600 a night and felt like I was staying at a Sheraton or worst.
Very elegant and friendly hotel.
Ms. Kenya at the front desk made our trip very wonderful with her service and smile. We like to thank her for her hospitality.
Location was great. Walking distance from the quarter. Quite street. Parking was quite easy.
This is a small old hotel that is very charming and in a great location. Close to the French Quarter and Riverwalk. Tiny rooms. My room took 5 - 10 minutes to get hot water running.
The hotel was clean, comfortable, and convenient. The front door opens to the back door or a nearby hotel's trash collection site.
Good price. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Not many amenities
The room is too small and has no window.
The location kept us a block or two away from the late night crazy of the French Quarter while still close enough that we could walk to nearly anything. It was also 1 block from the cable cars so we could go farther afield if we wanted to. The restaurant downstairs was really popular with locals and there was always a line. Not a real negative, because it was tasty, just a 'heads up!'
I'd say the biggest con for me personally was the lack of a fitness room, staff could have been a bit more welcoming, I didn't find the customer service to be the best--but the room was nice enough and the location was great-overall an okay experience.
Location was perfect and extremely easy to get to anything and everything. The non-windowed closet... oops... room was tucked away... next to the stairs exit. Extremely noisy. The room was dirty, the toilet stopped up, the bathroom had mold in the shower and mildew on the wall (inside and out of the shower). We only had lukewarm water the entire visit. Our visits to NOLA have us in our rooms very little durring our stays... still want a clean room with hot water. Things will have to change a lot for me to ever stay there again. With all this negativity spoken I must say the staff was nice and very helpful.
Friendly staff. Clean room. Great location.
Great location! Great staff! Great little boutique hotel. Beds are wonderful! Wish there was a fridge in our room, but otherwise I highly recommend this fantastic quiet little gem! ,Great location!

Location, beds were very comfortable, clean rooms Had no hot water in the shower and the staff was not very helpful to remedy the issue. Hallways were very noisy and it seemed like a door was always slamming. Parking was expensive (40/night)
Loved this hotel! Wish we would've booked all 4 nights here! The only reason we stayed here Saturday night was because the Sheraton on Bourbon didn't have a room available. We had booked the Sheraton sun through weds and then decided we were going to New Orleans Saturday also. Needless to say, will stay here anytime I go to New Orleans! AWESOME hotel! Beds are very comfortable and the bathroom was huge! And this hotel is well within walking distance of the French Quarter! Staff is very friendly!
Close to French Quarter. Very expensive for the quality of the room, our windows were facing a wall, the room was located on the third floor. The front desk had poor customer service.
The staff was great at the doubletree. We arrived about 12:15pm and check in was at 3pm, but they accomadated us right away! The bell men and valet staff were wonderful with helping the bags and calling cabs right away. The Wow cafe served great food and the customer service there was wondeful as well.Rooms were clean and comfortable.Overall if you want great customer service I recommend this hotel! When I visit New Orleans again I will definetly be staying at this hotel.
LOCATION Asked for wash rags twice. Even went down to front deak in person. Never got them.
Delay in getting towels when calling Response time was greater than 30 minutes
Good location. Close enough to walk to the French Quarter but far enough away to get out of the craziness and noise. Right on St. Charles streetcar line- very convenient. Very large room and bathroom. Very clean. Great bed. Good towels. Would definitely stay here again! Expensive but then it is New Orleans! Price was pretty much on par with other hotels of the same type. Huge bathroom but almost nowhere to hang towels. Another towel rack or a few more hooks would have been nice and there was plenty of room for them.
The room was spacious (we chose space over views) and the beds were comfortable. Very clean and the maid service was excellent - my colleague's wallet fell out of her bag inside the room as we rushed out to dinner and the maid put it on the center of the bed so we could see it immediately when we got back. The room was quiet (on the top floor) and the location is an easy walk to the French Quarter. Tried to order room service and couldn't get through to either the number in the menu or the number on the phone (which were different). After half an hour, called the front desk and told them the issue; they said they would call the restaurant manager and have her call my room directly. That took another half an hour and then the order I got was wrong. Didn't have time to call and correct it, so I paid $35 for the wrong breakfast and went outside the hotel the rest of the trip. Should have realized when there wasn't a pre-order form to place on the door that ordering breakfast in might not be a regular routine? When checking out, I asked for a copy of the bill showing the total paid with a zero remaining balance, which I need for travel reimbursements at work. Was told I would need to get that through the booking service (I used Kayak, which I find dependable). I was able to convince the person checking me out that I needed a hotel bill that showed I do not owe any balance, but this shouldn't require so much time and explanation - don't people stay here frequently enough for business that staff understand the standard documentation process? As a frequent traveler, I haven't had this issue anywhere else with a rating above 3 stars.
restaurant room cleanliness nothing
Location was convenient, it is walking distance to the French quarter. Staff was friendly, room was clean. Parking is pricey. It is across the street and it is $25 for 24hrs. Beds were really small. Bathroom was also small.
It was close to every event I was attending that weekend. The staff was very friendly. Check-in and out was also great no long waits.
Good Location, nice room and comfortable bed. Friendly staff. I'd stay there again!
