Fodor's Review

Adding a touch of class to its Bourbon Street environs, this French Quarter favorite is soothing from the moment you step into the marbled lobby, where lush plants enhance a cool, serene atmosphere. Guest rooms are restful, and furnished with flat-screen televisions, pillow-top mattresses, and complimentary Wi-Fi; many have French doors that open to balconies or patios. The RClub level features upgraded rooms and suites, plus private elevators, a club lounge and special amenities.The Desire Oyster Bar, on the lobby level, faces Bourbon Street and serves local seafood delicacies; LeBooze Lounge offers a front-row seat to Bourbon Street; and Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse delivers top-shelf live music nightly. Restaurant R'evolution by chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto is special-ocassion dining at its best, serving creative Louisiana cuisine.
