The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms were nice but small. It was missing the few features and nice touches. There is no in room dining and no restaurant in the hotel, but plenty nearby. The parking situation is just that, a situation. We paid more than $70 for two days and after waiting more than 30 min for our car it arrived covered in bird [*]. With so many good hotels in NOLA I would not recommend staying here. Go for the room in need of a renovation for the charm. This hotel is lacking that.

New Orleans Hotel

The renovated hotel was nice, personally I prefered the older less "swanky" St Marie Antonette. But my husband and I decided to pay double what we used to pay and check it out. Its great if you are looking for a nice weekend hotel, but it does not really offer anything special. It is feet from Bourbon St and located in a middle of the Beautiful French Quarter. The staff was nice but again nothing special. Was it worth the 200 we paid for 1 night, no.

The Staff was so nice.

Have been going to The Quarter for several years and this was the first stay at Le Marais. Our room was very nice, clean, comfortable etc. The morning continental breakfast was great, plenty of choices and all good. Loved the courtyard and pool area. You are half a block from all the excitement of Bourbon and the courtyard is so quiet. The staff was so nice. From the moment we checked in until we checked out three days later, the staff was wonderful. Can't wait to go back!

Great experience

Overall I have nothing but positive to say about this hotel. For the price we paid it was clean, the staff was friendly and responsive and who complains about free breakfast in the morning. I would return

Overall great French Quarter Spot

The staff and overall vibe of the hotel were great. Rooms were cool and clean. The hotel was very loud though. We could hear everything in the hallway and adjoining rooms. I guess thats what you get for staying in the Quarter. Overall, good place and great location.

A Good Vacation

A very good stay in a newly refurbished small hotel in the French Quarter. The staff and service were good, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the courtyard next to the bar is a good meeting place. We shall certainly come back.

Great little hotel in great location

My family just returned from good deal on a few days here, and we liked it very much. It's an ideal location in the French Quarter; you could walk out the door every morning and just wander through fascinating streets. (In our case, we walked out the door and always turned left, since Bourbon Street rowdiness holds zero appeal.) The small pool in the courtyard was a nice refuge from the surrounding scene. Included breakfast was very basic, but convenient. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and very modern inside this old building. Our only complaint: The only way they could give us 2 adjoining rooms was to put us on the smaller street-facing side, and even from the top (5th) floor, we heard PLENTY of Bourbon Street noise, all night -- mostly the low thump of music coming through walls. We just coped because we needed adjacent rooms, but I wouldn't accept it if I didn't need to - get courtyard side if you can.

What a gem

Great location, right around the corner from Bourbon street but far enough away to not hear it. Within walking distance to all of French quarter, iconic restaurants and great jazz on Frenchman street. Rooms were big, clean, modern and bed was huge and comfortable. Small bar downstairs was great for a quiet nightcap, but only went once as there is so much else right on the front doorstep. As with breakfast, the slim pickin's were all that should be needed as so many great breakfast places to choose from nearby. Fantastic hidden gem with clean modern decor. Friendly helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay in NOLA

Excellent place to stay and couldn't believe how quiet it was despite being only half a block off Bourbon St. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Only screw up was that we requested a king bed and got two doubles instead. Loved the courtyard for hanging out and meeting with other guests. Would stay there again.
