Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Choose for the location, stay for the martini bar
I normally stay at fairly new holiday inn express hotels and love the staff, amenities and rooms. So staying at a dated holiday inn with old mattresses, tiny bathroom and cramped room was somewhat of a shock to the experience. That said, the location was wonderful. Close to the street cars and near all the sites of the French quarter. The hotel front desk staff was rather gruff and unwelcoming of inquiries. The concierge, much more amenable. The rooms were kept clean, though you could come back from hours of site seeing and the room not be done yet. They indicate coffee is available in the lobby. I am a tea drinker, so had to go into the restaurant for hot water in the mornings. They also only had intermittent decaf coffee...another foray into the restaurant. Luckily the restaurant staff was pleasant, always! So my favorite part of this hotel was the martini bar! Great drinks at a great price during happy hour, with live music later in the evening that was perfect to chill out by. I can also recommend GW Fins restaurant just a block away. The restaurant in this hotel was good, service excellent, but food not memorable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by irene louise Sleeping in the basement
We were given a huge, bizarre room, with a flight of stairs from the door into the room. The furniture was all worn and mismatched, as were the lamps, which gave off an inadequate glow. The ceiling was ridiculously high, with wood beams across it. It was damp and gloomy, like being in a basement room filled with the family's dingy castoff furniture.
