Amazing location, beautiful hotel, helpful staff

I had a great time here over the last weekend in Mardi Gras. The hotel is on the corner of Rue Conti and Burbon, possibly the best location there is for the weekend. Walk out of your front door and party on Burbon, or walk less than a mile and be at Jackson Square, Harrah's, or the river. The hotel staff were so friendly and accommodating. The courtyard is beautiful, and breakfast was outstanding. The bar was great as well.

Great modern hotel in heart of French Quarter!

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel Le Marais. The staff was friendly, welcoming, and extremely helpful in answering questions and providing suggestions around the city. The courtyard is beautiful and relaxing - we enjoyed relaxing poolside or taking a swim in such a serene setting. The hotel restaurant served great breakfast and even better drinks in the evening, and our room was comfortable and clean with all modern amenities. The location is also ideal - all major attractions were walkable or just a short cab ride away, and despite being just a half block from Bourbon St, the hotel managed to still provide a quiet, relaxing setting for us to recharge or relax. I would recommend this hotel to all going to New Orleans and would happily stay there again.

Perfect little hotel in New Orleans

Rooms were very clean and well appointed with the most comfortable beds. Although only steps from all the fun of Bourbon Street, we were never bothered by the noise. Hotel had a lovely courtyard with salt water pool and staff were friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast and two drinks were an added bonus. Would return to this hotel and highly recommend to friends.

Great Stay

Stayed for 3 nights and couldn't have asked for a quieter, cleaner hotel right in the Quarter. Two complimentary cocktails of our choice and complimentary breakfast each day made it a great value. The modern decor only made it more attractive knowing our room was modern and clean and up to date. Shower was amazing! Location was perfect and staff helpful in getting transportation and recommending places to eat. Frankly in the Quarter even the smallest deli has amazing food! We would definitely stay again. This is probably our 10th trip to the Quarter and couldn't have been any better

Gorgeous, true boutique style hotel!!!

We absolutely loved this hotel!!! It was so clean, well apppointed, comfortable, and so well designed. A truly Old World European feel in modern, sleek accomodations. The bar, Vive, is very nice with a great selection of specialty drinks. The courtyard is so beautiful and serene; the furnishings divine. We will stay here again, and we are locals!!! Great location, breakfast, everything!!!

Needed Get Away

Beautiful, well done renovations. Loved the courtyard with a heated pool. The location couldn't be better. We parked our car and didn't need it until we left. Parking or the card did cost $30. Breakfast was nice. Great time - We will return.

European Style Hotel in NOLA

Very nice and comfortable bedding. The staff was super hosting except, the girl at front desk was foreign born, so a $42 steak was extremely moderate??? Not much space to maneuver in bathroom, but at least had location to put cosmetic bags! On extra towel cart. Lovely outdoor saltwater pool area. So clean and warm water to boot. Lounge/bar was a delight. It has 2 street addresses. It was difficult to find. But would return in a heartbeat. All in all, Le Marais was no swamp.
