Very lovely, well maintained hotel with helpful, courteous staff. The restaurant, Desire, is a great breakfast spot. The location, right in the middle of Bourbon Street, provided a lot of excitement, which could be viewed as either a pro or a con. The walk to the hotel at night was rowdy yet interesting but once inside the hotel you felt like you had stepped back in time to an elegant hotel.
We were a late check in. Having never been to New Orleans before we were not sure what to expect. Tim at the desk was very pleasant and escorted us to our room across the street from the main building. Yes the building is old. What else do you expect for a boutique hotel in the French quarter. But it had character. The room was clean and spacious. For the 3 nights we stayed here (at back end of jazz fest) it was quiet. There was one night that we heard people in the next room. But we had read reviews before we booked that said the walls were thin. Yes I would stay here again if ever back in New Orleans.
Wonderful location, room was very small but adequate- room was clean, hotel staff helpful. We were in a garret style room up 2 sets of narrow uneven stairs that were doable but steep especially with a suitcase. Also there was very low water pressure. Would stay there again but ask for a ground level courtyard room. The location was worth the stay.
This was a Historic Hotel that was a joy to stay in. The Building Exterior was a wonderful example of New Orleans architecture. The room size, separate sitting area, antique furnishings and very comfortable beds were more that I had expected. Beautifully landscaped pool and deck area to enjoy.
Very nice hotel smack in the middle of the French quarter. Close to everything and quiet.
The pool, bar and work out room are on the roof and it was nice to rest in the sun and swim on the hot days, very relaxing.
Very good location, but rather noisy. You can hear the people in the room next door to you and everything the house keepers are doing. Perfect if you just want a bed and spend the whole time exploring! Staff were very friendly and helpful
The staff at this hotel made the stay wonderful. They were accommodating when we need to store our luggage before and after our cruise before we even checked in. Lourdes was very helpful in all of her recommendations and took more than a fair share of time showing us on the map where and what to do. The room was big enough for both myself and my daughter but the room temperature couldn't be controlled in the room so it was a little colder than we liked it. The housekeeping staff start very early so since rooms are close together we were disturbed by knocking and vacuuming at very early morning. Overall it was a great place to stay and I would stay there again if I were to come back to NOLA..
"Convenient location to activities and restaurants"
This hotel is located close to activities in the French Quarter and the Mississippi River and one does not need a car. So if you are traveling by air, just take the airport shuttle and forget the hassle of the crazy traffic and expense. You can walk or get local transportation super easy. The staff was friendly and helpful. This hotel exhibits the quaintness of the historical past, but with the modern conveniences.
My boyfriend and I went to Nola for the first time ever and we chose to stay at the hotel st. Pierre. The hotel was exactly what we expected. Older building close to bourbon st. The staff was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. would definitely stay there again.
We were met by a Valet who was just wonderful. Our room was on the fifth floor on the courtyard side so we didn't have a balcony. The room was large and comfortable, but could have used some TLC. The wall paper in the hallway could have used renewing as there were places where luggage carts had torn it. I would suggest that a room on any floor up to the fourth would be requested if you want a balcony. We had a sandwich from the cafe attached to the Hotel, bring your appetite if you do the same. The sandwich was huge, delicious, and made to order. Be aware that the only ice machine is on the first floor.
What I liked the most was it was a block from Bourbon Street and only about 3 from the Riverside. We were in easy walking distance to the French Market, Jackson Square, and loads of great restaurants.
With its mix of sacred and profane, the French Quarter defines laissez-faire. This 85-block area is home to Bourbon Street’s rowdy bars, as well as Royal Street’s upmarket antiques. The devil’s music—in the form of New Orleans jazz—thrives at Preservation Hall. Nearby, hymns accompany Mass at St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. A block away, French Market vendors hawk foods and souvenirs.
