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.

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!

Comfortable and Chic

The Renaissance Pere Marquette is beautifully decorated with a blues music theme throughout the main areas and a uniquely New Orleans theme in each room w/ photographs of the city adorning the walls. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large - big enough for 2 people to use even though there was only one sink. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and provided great recommendations on sights and restaurants. The best part of this hotel is the location! It is only blocks from the French Quarter - providing easy access to some of the city's best offerings - but far enough away to provide a retreat from the crowds.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The St. Charles street car is only a block or so away. For $1.25 you can ride the open car to the Garden district, zoo, universities and up to the park. Along the way, I suggest hopping off for Voodoo BBQ - you can't miss the sign when you're riding past - some of the best I've ever had.

Great Destination

Very nice staff at the hotel, very friendly and very helpful and full of insight. The women working the front desk were amazing in helping us and valet attendents did a wonderful job. The bartender in the lounge made the best cocktails and had a very up beat attitude. And the girl working Starbucks didn't disappoint, she was very friendly and quick in providing me with my morning coffee. I would recommend this hotel to everyone I know traveling to see New Orleans.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Bourben street is wild and fun. If your in collage and want a good time that is the place to go on Friday and Saturday nights. If you want to go down and experience Bourben street those are the nights you want to go. If you want to go when its not so crazy do as the locals and go on Sunday night or any other night. It wont be so crazy.

Over night get away

The staff was very friendly. However, when we first got to our room, we assumed they would have gave us a king bed, instead we got 2 doubles. We called the front desk and they moved us immediately. It was a great stay for a great price. We will stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is close enough to walk the quarter and the riverwalk. If there is other places you would like to go, valet is one price as long as you're a hotel guest. Come and go as much as like.

Ideal weekend location.

Ideal hotel for a long weekend. Close to everything but quiet, peaceful and very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and quickly sorted out a problem we had with the type of room booked - in our favour! They were also very helpful with advice on where to eat visit etc. There is no need to go far as the attached restuarant (Mila) is excellent and [...] the barman in the hotel mixes a mean cocktail. Would return and would recommend to friends.

Bourbon Street is noisy and rather wild at times. If this is not what you are looking for check out the many alternatives in the surrounding streets.
