Centrally located in the city if New Orleans, this towering hotel offers more than a place to stay. It has great rooms, amenities, and is within stumbling blocks to the famous French Quarter. Most importantly, it is dog friendly. Although the closest patch of grass is about five blocks away. Nonetheless, walking on the streets of New Orleans is an adventure. There is no self parking but, the valet parking garage is across a lesser traveled side street and the valet attendants will allow one to go get anything forgotten from the car. Nice folks. The service here is top notch. Everyone has a welcoming demeanor and seems genuinely happy that there are guests in the hotel. The concierge is extremely knowledgeable and like any good citizen of the city knows all the unpublished quirks. Like which are some of the more unsavory places to avoid. Good hotel, great service, great location.
