Small hotel with old-world charm near French Quarter, business district
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.
Highlights
  • Pet friendly (up to 30 pounds, fees apply)
  • Convenient location
  • Budget friendly

 

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. 

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.

hot water

If hot water or small coffee maker can be provided, it will be more convenient. Warm water was needed for taking medication.

Great location

Not bad for the money. Clean. Friendly staff. Uncomfortable beds due to old mattress with springs that poked you. Coffee not always available. Usually gone by 11:00am. Old TVs with lousy reception. Good restaurant around the corner worth visiting.

Nice

If you're into the historical look, this hotel is the one. The bed was quite comfy, i just found it to be a little inconvenient to not have a vending machine on the same floor i was on. There is no microwave or fridge in the room, in which I'm assuming due to the age of the building. But it was a nice place, clean, bathroom has enough space for 2 to get dressed at the same time. Would stay there again

Good location walking distance to everything

We were pleased with the hotel. There was no extras such as a refrigerator or microwave but that was ok. We did not spend much time in the room other than to sleep. The beds were very comfortable and the hotel was quiet. The staff were awesome.

Great location, kind of pricey

Nice hotel. Did not have prior parking information- either valet underground for $30 a night with the ability to move car, or $15 a day across the street unable to move without paying another $15. Willing to pay the price for the location. Friendly staff.

Good location, spacious, clean

Spent the week at the Pelham for work. Located between the convention district and the French Quarter - good for work/play. No breakfast or gym, but the adjoining breakfast/lunch place is fantastic. Relatively quiet and close/safe enough to walk home from the pub.

Great Location

The hotel is nice and clean. The best part is how close it is to the French quarter and Bourbon Street. I only didn't like the fact that our room didn't have any windows! It felt a bit like a cave... other than that it was ok. (oh! and valet parking very expensive!!)
