Our family is in New Orleans to celebrate the marriage of dear friends. Since the hotel is near the location for the reception and is cheaper than those in the French Quarter, we elected to stay here. Pros: rate is $100 per night less than in the French Quarter Large bathroom Short walk to the trolley stop Cons: Near the...

Great location for my meeting and great price but a bit far off the path if trying to to be close to downtown, French Quarter or Tulane. Not much around for dinner and the hotel only serves breakfast in the lobby. Beware if you have food allergies...let the team know in advance and they are happy to oblige, but I...

We were relocated to a different room, sage there did not work either, took us 3 times asking until it was repaired after 2 days....

Good location next to WW2 museum and street car. Can walk anywhere from here in 15 min. Bed comfortable. Room very quiet at night. Good shower. Sounds like they are about to get major remodel. The rate was higher than normal St. PATRICK'S DAY weekend. Would have liked it more if I had not had to pay so much. Was...

I would caution anyone against booking here. I booked a room via the Hotel's website, and everything seemed to be normal. I arrived early in the day, left my bag at the desk as rooms weren't yet ready for the day. When I returned to check in, I was told that no rooms were available due to the fact that...

Geoff, the concierge was great! Savior of our stay. Other than that, missing paper towels in bathroom for more than 12 hours. 1 washcloth in each room. Confirmed with other guests. Water valves in sinks and shower that spin due to wear and tear. Lamps with inline power cord switch with cord unorganized. It's more a pattern of quality rather...

Stayed her 3 nights and I am NOT COMPLAINING. The place is clean and quiet. Its just basic accommodations. The beds were platform style, with no box spring. Rooms had safes, but no iron or ironing board. (One was provided quickly upon request) No restaurant, but free continental breakfast. Internet is spotty on higher floors, but great in the lounge...

I was told they will do work on the hotel and it will soon be a holiday inn. If so that's good. It is outdated and needs some work. Overall it was fine and nicely situated uptown at lee. Circle. The location could not be better. Just that the place needs updating. I liked it. And would return. I did...

We enjoyed the location. It was clean and had a pretty good variety for breakfast. The bathroom in the room was updated but the remainder of our room felt dorm like. There was a desk chair and desk but not the comfy chair like they showed on line, when i asked they said they only had 3 rooms with that...

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
