The room was clean but lacked amenties. Just basic. Rooms are on a courtyard with a pool. Located about 2 miles from the French Quarter which requires a taxi ($15 to $20 each way). Parking is free, In the Quarter/ parking is an extra $30 per day.
Next time, I will stay in the Quarter. Safer and cheaper!

Don’t let the outside appearance fool you! From the outside, it looks like one of the nicer, historic hotels like they have in the French Quarter but the rooms are horrible. This is also a very unsafe area with two bars across the street so there’s shady people all around the hotel at all hours. We had to put a chair under the door knob because the extra security lock was broken.
They don’t even have the basic amnesties like a coffee maker, hair dryer, microwave, mini fridge, etc. It’s 4 walls with a TV on the wall and a bed. That’s it!
When we got to our room we had to be moved because the vanity light didn’t work. They moved us and that vanity light flickered off and on so when we reported it, they brought us a lamp.
The AC was very loud and rattled all night, making it hard to fall asleep.
The hallways smell like marijuana all the time.
This place is horrible!

We booked this hotel for Mardi Gras through Qantas Hotels. We expected a reasonable standard. It was anything but.
It is in the middle of renovations, maybe not that far. The lobby looks nice, but staff is not very helpful. Our room literally had a king bed, a small table, one wonky chair and a bathroom. Not a rail in the closet, no hangers, no place to put anything. No rails in the toilet to hang towels. The room was never serviced in our four days, the bathtub doesn’t drain properly, so the second person bathing spends time in the soapy water. The toilet is not secure. You can feel the tank move when you sit. No phone in the room, so if you need anything, go back down the tiny lift to ask.
There is new carpet in rm 414, but lots of carpet is sitting around the hallway and what looks like a work room, only no one working.
New Orleans is a great city and we’ve had a great time and enjoyed the city, but this hotel lets it down.

We stayed at the Midtown from 12/24/19 through 1/5/20 and after a small check in snafu had a wonderful stay. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating the room we were given was very nice! They were in the midst of renovating so one can assume all the rooms will be upgraded upon completion. If you're looking for a great value great location and nice room this just may be the best value in New Orleans! I do recommend The Midtown hotel

I stayed at this hotel about 2 weeks ago just as COVID-19 restrictions were beginning to ease. I was still quite worried about cleanliness and social distancing. Fortunately, my concerns were quickly put to rest upon arriving at this hotel. The whole hotel seems to have been freshly renovated. It even has the faint smell of fresh paint & cleanser. The hotel is modest and tidy. My room seemed as if I were perhaps the first person to stay in it post-renovation. I was relived and relaxed in my room. I opted to take an Uber to the French Quarter two miles down the road. It cost me exactly $8 although there is apparently a bus right next to the hotel that would have taken me for $1.25. It's a cheap, clean, freshly renovated, no thrills sorta place which was perfect for me. I didn't spend an abundance of time in my room because I was too busy exploring the fabulous city

I booked a room in advance of my arrival. The amenities were to be as follows: a microwave, a coffee pot with coffee cream and sugar, and a balcony. The room I was given had neither of those. Plus, the room I was in did not have a chair in which I could sit and relax, to watch TV. And the only desk was the desk where the TV was at. So when I wanted to do some work on my Laptop, it was impossible to just sit back and see the TV between breaks. So the night I spent there was really one of my worst stays at a hotel. Would I recommend this hotel to someone, YES, if all you want to do is get some sleep. But for Business NO.

My Friends and I took a trip to New Orleans for the weekend and stayed at the Midtown Hotel. When we got on Tulane Ave we noticed it was a pretty scatchy neighborhood but continued to the hotel and noticed that the pool outside was very nice to we proceeded to check in. When we arrived in our room 215 it was like something out of a horror film! There was enough dust in the room that would sufficate even a dust bunny. The safe in the closet was held on with what seemed to be duct tape. There were no towels, soap, or shampoo. We were in a rush to get ready because we had to be in line to get in to Ampersand within the hour so we changed and decided to worry with the towels when we got back. When we returned to the "hotel" we asked the front desk for some towels and was only given one. The man at the desk said he was have to look for some more. When my friend went back down stairs to get the towels they were disgusting with brown marks all over them. When asked why the room was not ready with towels and other essential things the man replied that most guest come during the day handle their "business" and leave! We had no money for another room so we slept on top of the covers that night. In the morning we were packing up and found two empty vodka bottles, one under the bed and another behind the t.v. This place was horrible and i wish i had read the reviews before hand.

It's a cheap hotel for a reason; Just based on that I didn't expect more than a safe place to lay my head for a few hours, but what I got was so much worse. Let's start by saying that if you can afford a better place, go. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

This place needs to be condemned! So the first room I was given--304-- was horrible. I thought to myself, "did they really expect people to live like this?" First of all, I had to walk through a hallway that was dripping water to get to the room (and it didn't even rain that day) and when I got to the room the door was wide open. I immediately was regretting this hotel choice, but if that wasn't bad enough the room too was leaking water from the ceiling that was being caught by a bucket in the middle of the room and the carpet was flooded. The bathroom lights didn't work and the nightmare was complete with a dilapidated bed. I didn't stay long enough to see the toilet and bath area, but it was probably just as nasty. Not a good scene and just before I was about to cut my loses and go home, I went back down to the lobby and asked for a new room. The new room was an improvement, but I was still traumatized from the previous one and I had anxiety the whole time I was there. The beds weren't comfortable and I had trouble sleeping (mind you I was working nights in the city and needed my rest) then add in the maid who came by twice banging on the door like the police. When I screamed "who is it" she didn't even reply. Because of this, I checked out early and cut my losses.

I stayed with a friend & she was supposed to check out later that day. Unfortunately, the manager is just as (or more) horrible as the hotel and this too turned into a big ordeal because the key stopped working just as she was about to collect her stuff and leave. When she went downstairs to tell the manager, the she-witch of a manager acted as if she'd never seen my friend walk through the lobby (which has only one entrance in which she was present 80% of the time) claiming that she wasn't checked in with the hotel (which I didn't know until then, but my room said 2 adults and there is more than enough evidence that she was the second adult--I mean she had a key and we've walked through multiple times). The manager went so far as to say that her "eyes were closed" and she'd never seen my friend before in retaliation when my friend was trying to get her stuff from the room. Knowing even if they were she had several cameras set up behind her desk that see everyone who walks through and probably which room they went to. She had a really bad attitude and gave us a really hard time just to get her stuff out of the room.

All the while this was happening, I was already checked out and back in my own home so my nightmare didn't end just by checking out. She made my friend wait some hours later for the maid to unlock her door to get her stuff out. It made no sense and seemed like this whole thing was purposeful just to spite because if you truly didn't know who this person was why would you let a so called "stranger" wait for a maid to go into a room to collect items? Right. Thankfully we got our stuff, but the maid was also a witch and slammed my friend's stuff down.

All this could have been avoided from not staying with this hotel and if their key systems didn't fail and lock you out of the room (it happened to me too, but the guy manager didn't care enough to check my I.D. to make sure I was the person in the room -- the card deactivates randomly it seems and I never had placed it by my phone or anything like that).

PLEASE DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. ITS A PIECE OF CRAP THAT I'M SURE HAS ENOUGH HEALTH VIOLATIONS THAT IT NEEDS TO BE CONDEMNED. AND AFTER THE EXPERIENCE I'VE HAD I WILL DO ANYTHING IN MY POWER TO GET THIS HOTEL BANISHED.

Oh, and a note for management -- don't you DARE comment below talking about how you're sorry and want to make your hotel better. We both know it's not going to happen and you're not sorry for anything but the mere fact that so many people are upset and writing REAL reviews and tarnishing your sad reputation. Best of luck.

We change our mind, but we can't get a refund Why?
Answer from Kenji H
Madison, Wisconsin1 contribution5 helpful votes
It really depends whether or not you've made the reservation directly through the hotel or through a traveling website. The property manager continually made the claim that she couldn't refund me as I paid the traveling website, which was false but that was her justification. If you are having difficulties in getting a refund I would recommend disputing the payment through your credit card company and putting a claim for failure to provide basic ammenties.

Because your place was scary. Couldn't find a manager when we wanted and we were told that there was no refund so we just left.
