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 reproduction antiques; many have French doors that open to balconies or patios. Those facing Bourbon Street can be noisy, but most are sufficiently soundproof. 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. New restaurant R'evolution is already becoming a destination eatery.
