4/10 Fair

Very creepy and desolate
This was an odd and uncomfortable stay. Perhaps the minimalist loft style would have been appealing if this was a fully active hotel but because it's just managed by international house and the Lobby and restaurant/bar area are completely abandoned, the starkness of the rest of the hotel and the strange eerie painting in the bedroom really made this an uncomfortable stay. What's more the curtains and the shades are sheer so there's no light control or privacy. And we had issues with the condition because a circuit blew so I had no working outlets or bedside lights for 24 hours and the sink was stopped up almost entirely by the end of my visit. Plus the shower is just very odd with weird angles of water not fully covering and all very off-putting. There's no on-site staff and the expectation is you'd call on the cell phone to the lobby of international house but sometimes it would take a couple of calls before anyone answered. Just felt so creepy and not so safe.

4/10 Fair

The hotel does not communicate upfront that their location is NOT staffed. I arrived at 10pm and ended up standing on the street outside the hotel with all my bags. Thankfully a passerby directed me to a different hotel a block away so that I could check in. The rooms were not as clean as I’d expected, but the front desk clerk at the International House, Ray did everything in his powers to mend the situation. It just seems like maintenance and management have missed the mark on this one. The fridge doesn’t really work and there aren’t any microwaves on either property. If I were still breastfeeding or had medication that needed refrigeration, I’d be out. The lounge and bar pictured on are no longer operable and is not a part of the Loft property. The Banksy gallery at the International House is a nice surprise and there are two free drink tokens to their bar were nice but unused. I moved to a second room, but because of its condition, I ended up cancelling the entire reservation.
Television was broken and did not come on.
This lib was propped open and would not close.
Toilet seat cracked—in the 2nd room that I was moved to.
Dust, dirt and exposed wires.

The location was good, front staff was great the check in was next block due to construction clean, good space, noisy area in mardi gras but part of location with parade route. only issue was shower heads sucked - double heads with no ability to adjust and were aimed and head spray too high would stay again, good price and clean

They’re very nice and helpful. I will make this my number one pick when needing a hotel. The only issue I had that was fix very FAST was there other location what I booked but due to them remodeling they made sure I will be happy at the location called them International house so no worries 😊

Loft style rooms - large with high ceilings - large bathroom with freestanding bathtub and double shower. The room we stayed in had a lovely balcony- which was perfect on a warm night for a glass of wine and to unwind! The neighbourhood was good - lots of restaurants and lounges - and a short walk - 5 minutes to the French Quarter, we will be back!

Location was excellent, room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful! No amenities if your looking for that, the only thing was there was nowhere to sit with friends and have a drink in the hotel. The bar was only open a couple days for events. Only negative was our neighbours were very loud in the hall and it sounded like they were inside our room. Overall I would recommend this hotel!
