Very good with a couple of minor drawbacks

We've stayed at this hotel before and enjoyed it. We came back, so that tells you something, right there. The hotel is nice, comfortable and in a great location. The staff is friendly and professional. The adjacent restaurant doesn't seem to be open much...and the bar seemed to never be open when we went in. There's another bar just off the main lobby. This bar is small, understaffed and the bartenders are pretty disorganized. It can easily take 10 minutes to get a drink (which may actually be not what you ordered) if there's one person ordering a couple of drinks. The sitting area is very nicely appointed, casual and comfortable and is organized into nice social groups...but at night, expect to sit in front of someone else's uncleared plates & drinks for a good long while. We found that the 'Starbucks' in the lobby is not a Starbucks. There are Starbucks signs everywhere, Starbucks coffee, Starbucks cups etc...., but don't try to use your Starbucks cards here...it's not a Starbucks. That seems a little smarmy and deceitful, to me. The rooms are very comfortable (caution: every night there were one or two guests not being courteous of others, by using their 'outside' voices in the hallways at 2 or 3 in the morning. It was pretty loud. I tend to fall asleep pretty quickly again, so it was a minor annoyance for me, but it might not be for someone else.

If it's Sunday, skip Cafe Du Monde. Head over to Cafe Beignet. it's closer, the lines are shorter, the beignet's and coffe are just as good, plus their breakfast offerings are excellent.

Great Place to Stay

We enjoyed everything about the stay. The only downsitde was getting into the hotel through construction, and it was pretty dark for accessing on foot.

Great Hotel

The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the value for the room I received was great, and it was in the perfect location. My only complaint would be that parking is a bit expensive.

Great experience!

The Renaissance Pere Marquette is a beautiful luxe modern hotel. This was our second stay with them. The beds and pillows are superb, the food is delicious! I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. My only negative is the cost for parking per day. I feel hotel guests should have complimentary parking. $42.56 per day is a bit steep!

Halfway Stop

Having never been to New Orleans before, we know we picked a great hotel to stay at. The hotel was easy to find and right off the freeway. The staff were so helpful and enthusiastic in trying to make the stay comfortable. Although the Navigator was either not present or busy everytime we went to see them, the other staff was also very knowledgeable. The late check out was also great; we didn't have to wake up too early in the morning to check out. Our favorite part was the fact that the hotel was right outside of the French Quarters and the street led right onto Bourbon st. We would definitely stay here again for another visit.

Street cars were super cheap. An all day pass was 3 dollars and one way was 1.25. Definitely use this if you don't plan on wondering too far.

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!
