The first time I ever came to NOLA, I stayed here. We won the airfare and hotel stay at this hotel. In 2004 it was really nice. We got here this Thursday and I am writing the review in the room now. Thursday night I saw a small black beetle like insect (if you know what I mean, Citysearch flags the real word) on the desk here. The kind that indicates lack of cleanliness. Its been like pulling teeth to get our room cleaned, or any fresh towels. We had to make a call to the front desk to remind them to clean today. The Checkered Parrot Restaurant (formerly TGI Friday's the last time I stayed here) had equally bad service and the food wasn't wonderful. It took forever for them to take and fill our breakfast order Friday morning and they kept forgetting things. Parking is easy, as it is a garage right here at the hotel. The automated parking card is also a plus. I'd say this place has really gone downhill in the last few years.
Pros: Location, Parking
