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.

Great location, beautiful rooms

Didn't stay here for the pool or the ambiance at the bar,so ticked all of our boxes. Loved the room, so clean and fresh and new and comfortable. Within walking distance of ALL of the french quarter. super convenient and far enough (1 block) away from Bourbon Street so all the action and no noise! Loved our stay. Would definately recommend Hotel Le Marais

Excellent chic hotel

Stayed here during a recent visit to N.O. We had never been to N.O. and after researching hotels in the area, Hotel Le Marais seemed like the best choice. It's close enough to Burbon Street, but far enough away to not be overwhelmed by that area. The hotel is also within walking distance of great shopping. Walking in at night, the purple light will throw you off at first. Your eyes will need to adjust. Anyway, the hotel is very clean, the staff was very friendly and accomadating and helpful. Security is excellent. You will need your pass key to access the room, the elevator and stairs. There are also security cameras everywhere. This is a small hotel, so there are only four floors and the space here is used very well. We stayed on the third floor with a view of the courtyard/pool area. The room was very clean and had a 40" flat panel t.v., very comfortable beds and pillows. The only complaint about the room was the shower. It's very small and there is not a lot of water pressure. Maid service was very good at keeping the room in order. Every morning there was a continental breakfast of eggs, sausage, bacon, bagels, muffins, toast, jellys, juice, coffees, teas, and yogurts. This hotel also has a heated pool in a really nice patio area. There is also a business area with two p.c.'s and a printer. The bar area is nice if not a little small. At check in, you will receive a drink pass for the bar...nice touch. Overall, no complaints. If I went back to N.O. I would stay here again.

Great hotel

Only 2 small complaints to an otherwise excellent hotel. 1 - the pocket door to the bathroom was very hard to slide and rather noisy. 2 - it would have been nice to have a mini frig in the room. Other than that the room was clean and comfortable, the location was perfect (pretty much in the middle of the French quarter but amazingly quiet), and the staff were all friendly.

Anniversary getaway

We had a great stay at this hotel. Rooms were a bit small, but very clean and had a comfy bed. Staff was very friendly and greated us every time we walked in the door. The location was amazing, right off Bourbon Street and had an amazing resturant next door. Overall a great stay and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Take a carriage tour of the cemetaries and French Quarter, it's a neat way to tour the landmarks of the French Quarter without having to walk so much.

Perfect for a city break

Excellent location in the French Quarter between tacky Bourbon and classic Royal. Quiet despite the noise round the corner in Bourbon. Staff at reception especially friendly and helpful. Modern interior, clean and well maintained, with a pleasant courtyard pool which unfortunately it was too cold for us to take advantage of. Comfortable spacious room with excellent shower room. Only problem was that the breakfast staff were rarely visible, slow at replenishing knives, condiments etc and not available for queries.

Nice Place

Hotel was excellent. Half a block from Bourbon Street, which makes it quiet inside but, close enough to stumble back from the mayhem. Clean and nicely decorated inside. Breakfast was very good. Hotel staff is excellent. Very pleased!
