5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, elegant hotel with amazing service. Loved having drinks on the rooftop in the afternoon, before it got too busy. My only criticism is that the beds in our Erato double were comfortable, but quite small for two people.

I liked the old feel to the property and it’s perfect location. Close enough to catch the street car down to Bourbon Street, but far enough to get a good nights sleep. The front desk staff were so nice and helpful. Trent & Pherell helped us a lot! The only not so positive thing to say is for the first half of our trip the heat in the room didn’t work, we let the front desk know and they fixed it promptly. Would stay here again !
