Fantastic Hotel

Fantastic hotel and location. Clean room, great bar, very helpful staff for local attractions and all around a beautiful stay. Only bummer is you have to pay $38/night for parking.

Excellent value for the money and plus on location

I take a trip to New Orleans every year and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The R. Pere Marquette is an excellent value. I appreciated the detail, upscale design, and prime location. I was within walking distance of almost every attraction in the heart of New Orleans. I will say that they could use bigger closets. They also place the coffee maker in the closet which I've never seen before and found odd. Other than that, I also appreciated that the hotel has a restaurant, room service, a bar, and coffee station.

Awesome quick vacation

Very nice hotel with an awesome staff that seemed to emphasize customer service. Hotel is right down the street from famous Bourbon Street and is in walking distance of the casino and Riverwalk outlet. Only down side is that there is no free wifi and the pool area is very small. 4.5 / 5.0 stars easy!

Mardi Gras Weekend

My girlfriends and I booked a room at this hotel so we would be closer to the downtown area since we were attending some balls for Mardi Gras. I was pleased that they allowed me to check in early, but the room was not as requested. We asked for a double bed room, and I was told they were sold out of them and then my friend who also asked was told that we didn't request one. By the end of our stay we had received food and drink credits due to mishaps made by the staff. Great location tho!

January trip

Great location, close to Bourbon Street. Room clean and very roomy. Nicely made up by Housekeeping. Was in town for a wedding so was too busy to experience bar/restaurant/gym, etc. A microwave would have been nice. But had use of mini fridge and coffee maker.

Great Location!!!!

The hotel staff were great and the location was perfect! The hotel is minutes away from Canal street and Bourbon street. A few negatives things about the hotel was that wireless internet was not free. Wireless was available at a charge or 12.00 per day. Free wireless was available only in the hotel lobby. My husband and I wanted to workout/exercise but the hotel fitness center was undergoing renovations. The hotel did offer that we could visit another hotel (located about 1 block away) fitness center free if charge if we wanted to workout/exercise. The room was pretty clean...the bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Food menu options at this hotel were over priced. Be prepared to spend $$$ or walk to nearby restaurant.

Love this place!

Can't wait to come back. Got a great deal, and the room was impeccable. Comfort, a little luxurious. The vibe is welcoming and spiffy and the location can't be beat -- it's nice to be across Canal from the French Quarter -- close but not in the thick of it. All the staff were helpful and friendly, too. The pool is small and the parking's expensive, but we would definitely go back.
