We were in new orleans for my birthday and I chose the plaza thinking it would be an upscale property. The rooms were small but clean and the restaurant was great. However the pool and fitness center were closed because there was a swingers convention. They did not tell us when we booked and we had no access to the amenities. There were people walking around with whips half naked. I would not have expected this for an upscale chain like the Plaza. I specifically chose this hotel for the amenities and location.
\nRegarding the location, we stayed on july 8th and 9th. There were 2 shootings outside on bourbon street if which we had to run for cover. I would definitely not recommend tthis hotel unless your a swinger who likes to live on the edge!
\nThe management of the hotel had the audacity to call me a liar saying that they highly doubted people were half naked. Trust me I was there and they were.In addition, yes they did provide us with access to another hotel which was a block or two away and a 2 star at best. The pool as gross and the fitness center was below par. If i wanted a 2 star experience i would have paid for it!
