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.

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.

Great location, cute place

The front desk staff were very pleasant and welcoming! The hotel was modest, only 4 floors but rooms had high ceilings and a vintage feel. Right downstairs is the Ruby Slipper--a nice breakfast/brunch place. Location was great because it was far enough away from the crazies but everything was walking distance. The House of Blues is literally down the street across Canal St which was perfect for our trip. Overall, it was easy to find yourself back after a night on Bourbon St.

If you want a nice Hookah bar and cheap drinks/Mediterranean food, I recommend Attiki bar (I think it's called) it's right across the street from House of Blues, which is just across Canal St from the hotel. :)

Great Weekend Getaway!

We arrived late on Friday night and found that while the hotel was a bit difficult to find, the location was perfect for our purposes. We were close enough to Bourbon Street and the Waterfront to make for a quick trip, but it was nice and quiet when we wished to sleep in on Saturday morning. The room was a bit on the small side, but we weren't really in New Orleans to hang out in the room. The staff was friendly and very laid back. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Sweet Little Hotel

I chose the Pelham for its proximity to the French Quarter, Convention Center, and streetcar and bus lines. It worked out beautifully. Close enough but not on the busy main drag or in the all-the-time busy Quarter. Only going to get better--new management is taking the little bit of shabby out of the hotel, making it fresh and still classic in appearance.

Don't miss the free concerts at the National Jazz Historic Park behind the French Market. One almost every day, different times of day, informal, but always good.

Pelham Attention

Must say I was surprised at the quality and care given guests. The Owner lives on-sight and the Front Desk Staff could not be more helpful. The attached breakfast/lunch shop is a nice addition and it fits well in the general scheme of things. Would absolutely go back

Loved my room

The room was fabulous with tall ceilings and a 4-post bed with traditional step stool. The linens were so soft and the bed very comfortable. My only concern was the woman at the desk was unenthusiastic. I was early to check in (1:00pm) but she would not check with housekeeping to see if they could prepare my single room since I was waiting. I thought customer service meant doing what you can to ensure excellent service. This did not happen. And coffee is only available in the morning so I had to go next door to the restaurant and buy a cup. Not cool. But my room was great!
