Good choice for the French Quarter

This was our first trip to New Orleans. We went for the Jazz Fest. We wanted a nice hotel that was near the French Quarter but not in the middle of the Bourbon Street craziness. The Pere Marquette was perfect. It is located at the very end of Bourbon Street, just across Canal Street, which is the border of the French Quarter. We walked everywhere. It was so convenient. Great restaurants, shopping, taxis always available. (and taxis are a great way to get around there. Very inexpensive). The hotel service was excellent. It's not over the top luxury, but it's very nice. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful to us newbies. The room was modern, clean. and QUIET (except for the HVAC hum that seems to happen in all hotels). It was kind of smallish, but who needs a big hotel room in New Orleans when there is SO much to do? We didn't spend much time in it except for sleeping. The elevators are fast, the lobby bar is a great place to hang out, there's a latte cart right in the lobby, and they are all eager to make your stay memorable. Bourbon Street was a bit of a shock. Talk about Babylon. Sodom and Gomorrah. I mean, jeez. And I'm not a smalltown girl or anything.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Breakfast at Pierre Maspero's on Chartres St was so good, we went back there 3 days in a row. Great local hangout. It has a buzzing, busy vibe but we always walked right in without waiting. The food was great. The service was very friendly. And if you're into Bloody Mary's to go, you can just stop in at the bar and take one with you for your morning walk.

Good location for Price,but dirty rooms.

Customer service was great. Hotel was nice and modern. Late check in was speedy and no problems. Parking is $30 a day,but thats about the going rate anywhere around downtown.Pool is small,not rooftop but 3rd floor, and sits in-between 2 large buildings so no sun. Coffee shop is NOT a Starbucks but serves their coffee,false advertising. Only problem was multiple old stains on both beds in rooms and previous peoples old stuff left under bed,gross.

Renaissance Pere Marquette New Orleans

The hotel was enjoyable with a nice atmosphere and modern decor. Staff was excellent. One major drawback - all the king rooms, which mine was one of them unfortunately, shared a wall with the elevator and the elevator is very loud. You can hear the gears and movement all night and we couldn't get a wink of sleep.

Ask for a room AWAY from the elevator bank. They won't switch you if you are in a room next to the noisy elevator shaft.

Mardi Gras Stay

We stayed at the Pere Marquette for Mardi Gras. The facilities were great, the lounge is top notch and you MUST get a drink from [...]. The stay was comfortable, the rooms quiet (impressive for theis time of year) parking was on site and caused no delays. Checkout was quick and easy. We tried to stay out as much as possible but it was great to know we had such a good place to crash at. There are nicer rooms but it's hard to find a better one at this price point during Mardi Gras. We were all extremely pleased with our stay.

Pleasant Surprise

Front desk staff and concierge were very attentive and helpful. The rooms and accommodations were excellent, we were delighted. Everything is within walking distance, but far enough away from the crowds of the French Quarter. We had parking issues and the hotel provided us with a fair and reasonable solution, this never happens in Los Angeles! This hotel helped to make our overall stay a pleasant one.
