My husband has stayed at this location for business and says it is pretty nice. If you're just looking for a room and not going to do the French Quarter/Bourbon Street, then this should work.
We are looking at staying here along with my BIL/SIL. We have a larger truck with the backseat - so we are thinking of loading all the luggage in the back and shuttling over in our truck - parking it at the pier. At least that way we have one vehicle close by so that when we get off we can just load up the truck and take them back to their car. We will save the parking for one vehicle and not have to hassle with cabs and such. It will save some money.
If you have to pay to get lots of people back and forth then it may not be worth it to leave all the vehicles at the hotel. Are any of your vehicles big enough to handle the luggage and some passengers.
