Our room was on the 6th floor and overlooked the middle of the atrium. I was very worried about noise since I am a very light sleeper, but the room was SUPER quiet. There were many events going while we were there (dance competition, reunions, wedding reception, jazz band playing in the atrium), but the room was unbelievably quiet and we never had to wait more than a few seconds on the elevator. The hotel is HUGE and does not seem to have adequate dining facilities for the amount of guests there. There is a Starbucks in the hotel but it closes after 4:00 as do two other restaurants there. The only restaurants that stay open for dinner is a sports bar ($16 hamburger) a very fancy restaurant, and a grab and go sandwich/pizza place. There is a Jimmy Johns a couple of blocks away and three sit down restaurants (Dave and Busters is next door) just steps from the hotel. Hotel parking is $40 per day or you can park in the lot adjoining the hotel for $24 per day. If you park in the cheaper lot, you will be charged each time you exit the lot. Since we were not going to be using our car while we were there, we opted for the cheaper lot. It was very easy to get from the car to the hotel via an elevator and interior walkway. The room itself was very spacious and had a refrigerator, nice wardrobe closet with an iron and ironing board in there, two very comfortable beds, a large chair, dresser, and large TV. They provide you with plenty of amenities in addition to coffee, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, shower cap, cotton balls, q-tips that you can order from a menu for free. We actually ordered fingernail polish remover wipes, make-up remover wipes, and bedroom slippers and they were brought to us at no charge. Talk about hospitality! We took an Uber to the French Quarter and it was $8. We will certainly stay there again.
