Low-key travelers should ask for a hushed interior room deep in the property.

Ask to be as far away from Bourbon Street as possible to avoid street noise.

"One block off Canal Street and two blocks from the French Quarter, this hotel could be mistaken for a W Hotel given its modernist public areas." Full review

There is construction going on at a neighboring building on Common Street so light sleepers should avoid that side of the hotel for now.
