Recent guest reviews

When we arrived at hotel they could not find booking. They then found rooms for us at a cheaper rate then booked. Later they found booking and said price was more. Okay what ever, Then in the morning they slipped a paper under the door stating the lower price.When checking out in asked about this.After many phone calls and weeks later. I was not reinburced, but given a credit. What a waste of time and disruption, to an otherwise great trip.

I wouldn't say this was a great hotel for a romantic weekend with a lover... But it was fine for a quick business trip.

The hotel is in a perfect location in the pretty, peaceful Garden District. The St Charles Ave cable car stops right outside, so we did not need to rent a car. It is very easy to get to the French Quarter and the riverfront by cable car or a longish walk. The hotel is a true boutique. The southern hospitality of the staff was very warm and helpful.

My wife and I have stayed in this hotel several times and it never disappoints. Maybe karma came back to help us out this time though as upon check in, we were notified of the fact that we'd been upgraded to a huge corner room overlooking historic St. Charles Ave for nothing! The rooms are great, the location is great and staff is great...what else can I say!

The hotel was a good value considering its location. Our room was not cleaned until after 3:00 p.m. which meant it wasn't cleaned since we were back from our exploring for a rest. Biggest issue was that the outside trash was picked up at 3:00 a.m. in the morning which was very loud. This was on a Saturday morning and a Sunday morning. Ask for a room that is away from the pick up point. Convenient to trolly.

This hotel, located in the Garden District, was cute and in a good location to get around NoLa. Plenty of side street parking, popular restaurant downstairs. The desk staff was very accomodating and helpful - even offering us restaurant suggestion in the French Quarter. There is also a trolley stop directly outside - it's a quick (10 minutes) ride into Downtown NoLa. The distance between here and downtown was also easily walkable and felt safe.

Very helpfull and efficient staff. Right at a trolley stop.

When booking this trip sort of last minute I found that many of the hotels were full or charging very high (in my opinion) rates. This hotel was one of the few that looked decent and still had a reasonable rate. I was concerned about the location. Hoping to find something in the French Quarter didn't work out and this looked as if it might be really far away and in a sketchy neighborhood. Turns out it's a great location. It's away from the noise and traffic of the French Quarter, but very easy to get to. You can buy a trolley pass for just a couple of bucks and since the trolley line runs RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL you can get to the FQ in just a few minutes. Plus, there is a Walgreen's one block away for getting whatever you need and there is a Copeland's restaurant in the bottom of the hotel. Yum! Only 2 downsides. Small boutique hotel = No pool Paid parking I know it's a common thing, but I HATE paid parking. The majority of your customers are going to own a car, why can't you just build the parking fee into the cost of the room. Anyway, it's $18 a night for nice valet parking that I'm sure some people will appreciate. The free breakfast won't win any awards, but it's convenient if you just need to grab a bite on the way out. It's your typical muffin/danish/fruit/juice selection. I appreciated having the free breakfast available. It's a nice little hotel and a nice value. I would stay here again.

Had appt at childrens hospital - Very close. Nice hotel with vet comfy bed and pillows; however the towels to dry off with had long black hairs stuck.in.them. staff for laundry should catch this when folding.

We took in the sites around New Orleans.

Hotel is in a very convenient location to New Orleans attractions. Hotel is beautiful, with great accommodations, staff was very helpful. Would definitely stay again in the future.

Lobby very tiny. safety of neighborhood, especially at night? Not a good idea to be walking in the area after dark. NO shopping in the area. OK for a couple but very basic everything.

Difficult to find the hotel due to poor signage out front. Also, we found we were cramped while using the bathroom vanity area, but otherwise the room was spacious. However, for close proximity to Tulane and Loyola, can't say enough!! Keep in mind that the streetcar schedule can be a bit "unpredictable" having waited for up to 30 minutes, but that was not a hotel issue.

Front desk was very friendly. The attached restaurant (Copelands) had great food and drinks. The room was very nice, clean, and interesting looking. The location for those looking to visit Tulane or Loyala was great - right on the St. Charles street car just a few miles from the campuses. Even if I go back to be visit the French Quarter/Downtown, I will most likely stay here.

I always stay here to visit my kids at Tulane Univ. It is easy to get to and the rooms are spacious and clean. The people at the desk always take time to find answers to questions, places to go and help with any other needs in a pleasant way. Will definitely stay again.

We enjoyed the hotel and restaurant the staff was friendly and the service was great.

I was very pleased with The Clarion Hotel Grand Boutique in New Orleans, LA. It was newly rennovated with an art deco style. Our room was clean, roomy, and very nice. The hotel is located in the Garden District and has easy access to the New Orleans Trolly which can take you to the French Quarter and other popular locations in New Orleans. We were checked-in immediately at the Clarion Hotel Grand Boutique and didn't have to wait in line for services or the elevator.
