The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are very spacious with fantastically comfortable beds. Also, the staff were all incredibly kind and accommodating.

The only negative (and the reason for the 4 star for rooms) was that the windows in our room all directly faced a brick wall just a few feet away. This not only provided a 0% view of the city, it very much obstructed most of the natural light.

Perfect location for really short walk to Convention Center and Hilton Riverside.

Suite room is spacious and accommodating: coffee maker, microwave and fridge sure did make my stay much easier. Love the brick walls- really nice ambience.

Awaken after midnight due to some malfunction. Fire Department arrived. Something going on on the 8th floor. Asked for compensation and received $38.70. Could definitely have been cleaner. Felt like the staff was not entirely honest. Called later to talk to a manager and they gave me Valerie, who said she was the general manager.

Would definitely recommend asking for a higher floor where the windows are not blocked by exterior wall

Having a suite for such a great price close to the French Quarter.

The staff were very kind and friendly. One day the cleaning crew failed to freshen our rooms, but once we let the staff know, they were quick to bring us fresh towels. We chose to use the valet service instead of trying to find a parking place. It was worth the well worth the cost, and the valet were quick to bring our vehicle whenever we needed it.

It was advertised as a new hotel, but it was actually only a name change from a previous Embassy Suite hotel.

It was my first time staying "Out" of the Quarter and "IN" the warehouse district. It opened up a whole new part of the city to me. Great hidden restaurants and art galleries were everywhere.

Bed skirts need to be invested in for the rooms. It was odd to see the box spring with all the tags and labels on it. Housekeeping was a little early for NOLA standards but was very nice. The room keys were also an issue. in 2 nights I had to have mine reprogrammed 3 times. The staff was super nice and very accommodating. Valet was a bit pricey, and there was a parking deck next door. When we asked about deck parking during check in they just laughed at us. Wish they would have been more honest and we could have saved $60
