The Pelham Hotel offers a grand scale of personal service and attention to detail in an intimate boutique setting reminiscent of old world European grace.The petite hotel that is brimming with old-world charm and hospitality is located between the New Orleans downtown business district and the French Quarter, and is situated within a stone's throw to Harrahs Casino, Riverwalk and The Warehouse District. A stately lobby greets guests with marble floor, Persian rug and leather couch. The 60 guest rooms are decorated in classic European style with four-poster beds and thick drapes. The location's history dates back to 1719 when Jean Baptist Lemoyne de Bienville, the founder of New Orleans, was granted a plantation on this spot.
Rooms

Each of the 60 uniquely appointed king and queen rooms are outfitted with iron and ironing board, hair dryer, full-length mirror, AM/FM clock radio, 25-inch television, phones with voicemail, Internet Access (fees apply) coffee maker and in-room safe (fees apply).  Some rooms feature carved four-poster beds and details such as 18-foot ceilings, crown molding, exposed brick walls and dramatic 10-foot windows. The overall vibe is old world and comfortable. 

Property features

This hotel does not offer food and beverage service, so the in-room coffee maker is an important plus.  There is a dedicated tour desk to help guests plan excursions in New Orleans. Adjacent to The Pelham Hotel is the Ruby Slipper restaurant, featuring local flavors such as Barbecue Shrimp and Grits and Bananas Foster Pain Perdu along with traditional favorites for breakfast and lunch. The hotel is a non-smoking property. Valet parking is available (fees apply).

First time to NOLA

The hotel was in prime location. It is close enough to walk to Bourbon street and the French market without the noise and chaos from being on Canal street. The room was clean and gorgeous. The staff was very nice and was able to hold our bags before we checked in and after we checked out.

TERRIBLE

This hotel is really close to everything, that is its only good feature. The room was small, the beds were as hard as a rock! The bathroom door did not close! The shower did not drain well, we were taking a shower in over ankle deep water! The air did not work right, we were burning up the whole time! The walls were thin we could hear the people next to use fight all night.. They have no parking other than the unattended lot across the street or pricey valet.. We were so miserable we left early even though we were paid! Stayed at a lot of hotels in New Orleans I will not go back to this one..

Quick Trip to NOLA

Just had a day to spend in NOLA, and hoped to stay in a nice, affordable hotel near French Quarter. This fit the bill exactly.
