The photo posted by the hotel is a very accurate view of the room. Our room was clean and attractive. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Be sure to ask for towels - they don't keep them in the rooms for some reason. You also have to ask for the WiFi information.
Don't let the exterior of the building fool you. The outside looks dumpy and awful. When we first saw it, I was afraid we'd have to look for another place to stay. But then we saw our room and everything was fine. A local told us it had been flooded during Katrina and the interior was gutted and re-done. But I wouldn't walk by myself in the neighborhood at night.
The bus stop to get downtown is just at the next corner, and since there were 2 of us, we had no problems, even at night. The bus comes every half hour and is very convenient. Get an all-day pass and you can transfer to other buses and even the street cars.
