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).

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.

St Patty's Day

I only have two positive comments, location is good and it's clean. Our room was the closet for the room next door, or it seemed like it. The walls were taller than the room was long or wide. Outside parking means a city pay lot or you can opt for the $30 per day valet. Neither of which was revealed until check-in. Factor that in and there are much more comfortable places to stay with free parking.

Great place!

We were looking to be close to all the action and this hotel was perfect. 10 min walk to bourbon street. Tall ceilings, clean rooms, and a neat place overall. Would recommend.

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

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.
