Everything about this hotel was fantastic. Every staff member I met was very personable and helpful, they were the nicest out of any hotel I’ve stayed at. The live music was wonderful and the views from the rooftop bar were spectacular. There is a streetcar right outside the front door making it super easy to navigate around New Orleans. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in New Orleans and would absolutely stay again.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
My stay at the Pontchartrain Hotel resulted in their staff illegally entering my room (on multiple occasions/daily), going through my belongings and luggage, leaving trash and debris on the floor, and taking food that I had in my room. Illegal on every front and NOT ACCEPTABLE! I addressed this with their management prior to checking out and was guaranteed that I would receive a refund (via Expedia--my booking agent) from them to try and mitigate the severe damage and violation of my privacy and property. I am still awaiting my refund to be processed and expect this to be handled promptly since I checked out a week ago and it shouldn't take this long to address severe violations of a property toward its guests.
