    Smack dab in the middle of the French Quarter. Don't complain about small rooms or no jacuzzi; just go outside and experience New Orleans.

    Get yourself a Sazerac in the kitschy rotating Carousel Bar, then take a dip in the heated rooftop pool. - Green Guide Editor

    We timed it, and just in case you were wondering, the 360 degree rotation takes 14 minutes and 38.5 seconds--give or take the reaction time for the timer button after a few adult beverages.

    Small rooms, poor customer service, and the carousel bar is over rated. People from the convention where leaving the "5 star" hotel to go to the crown plaza.
