DO NOT STAY AT THE HOTEL CHATEAU DUPRE!!

New Orleans is a magical city, but this hotel was a total nightmare. Upon entering this tiny brick wall room that looked like a jail cell with windows, there was trash in the floor beside the chair, the curtains hung off the rod, so they didn't work or open, the bathroom floor was sticky, there was barely any toilet paper and there were only 2 towels for a 4 person room. Not to mention the desk people are completely rude. When I mentioned to them the trash, sticky floor and broken curtains, one of their response was "People expect this to be like the Hilton and it's not". No, I do not expect every hotel to be like the Hilton, but I do expect them to be clean with the amenities as promised, and with a staff that actually does their job, especially for the $150 per night and $28 per day valet fee. This hotel stay completely sucked and unfortunately made my New Orleans stay a bit less enjoyable.

Chateau Dupre Review

Decatur Street has a log of great places. Hotel is attached to Huck Finn's and across the street from French Quarter Pizzeria which were both good and convenient. Easy walk to most things you would want in New Orleans. Rooms could have been cleaner, better maintained.

You get what you pay for.

This is the cheapest place in the quarter. It's in a good spot. It's run down, but the staff is nice. The moral of this story is: you get what you pay for. I usually stay here because it's cheap. Don't expect any frills.

NOT as appears in pictures...

I just returned from New Orleans and a stay at the Chateau Dupre. I picked this hotel only b/c there was no availability anywhere else in the Quarter. Despite its convenient location, the hotel is nothing as advertised on their website. The entire place had a old, moldy stinch about it and the only elevator in the place was painfully slow. Although the Chateau Dupre is conveniently located in the Quarter it is certainly not worth the $200/night that we paid, especially considering the MUCH nicer Royal Sonesta is only about $30 more per night. While I am glad I was able to find rooms for the weekend, I would definitely avoid this establishment in the future.

Beware!

What they failed to mention when you book this hotel is that it is four stories with no elevator. They have an elevator but it appears to have been broken for some time based on other reviews and they have made no attempt to fix it for many months. Also, thier $25 valet service is per day whether you use your car or not.

Stay on Decatur street for dining. much quieter than bourbon street and i think the food was better. Check out Coops Place for the best Jambalaya.

Chateau Du'Not so great

The staff was friendly & helpful. The room was alright. The bathroom sink was missing a hot water handle & was a little drippy. I didn't expect the Ritz but a little disappointed but heck it was under a $100 just right down the street from House of Blues. The pillows were horrible but again can't expect too much for a cheap price. Kinda hard to see off the street. Very small plaque/ sign. There was what appeared to be a blood stain on the carpet right down the hall from our room and right next to it was a even bigger bleach spot on the carpet so maybe it was a homicide location at one time? The elevator was shabby. Had to push the door a couple times to make it go & was so slooooow.
