Hotel Le Marais
Ranked #10 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2012

Le Marais is a cool funky hotel with comfortable rooms and a lovely courtyard, with small pool where you can chill and also sit and eat the perfectly adequate breakfast. There is no restaurant for other meals but this wasn't a problem as there are loads of places to eat in the French Quarter outside the front door. The bar manager also let me get a pizza delivered to the bar to watch England loose a football match !!
The staff were quite superb, Kristina was the best I have ever known at a reception desk and Pierre was also very helpful. They helped me get tickets for local baseball match and also any tours that you needed. The Katrina tour was very worthwhile as was the swamp ride.
The location is excellent, right near Bourbon Street and an easy walk down to the river.
Great place, would happily return.

Room Tip: Book a large double bed overlooking the courtyard.

This hotel was great! Very close proximity to Bourbon Street (less than five minute walk), but without the noise. Its entrance is on the side of a street rather than in front facing the main road, so be on the lookout. New facility with a nice lobby and heated pool. Our room looked out onto a quiet courtyard. Complimentary breakfast with eggs, muffins, cereal, yogurt, milk and coffee. There was limited seating to eat, but it was still great. There is also a bar, and we got complimentary drink coupons when we stayed there. The only downside is that parking is difficult since the area around the hotel is limited, so we parked our car in an overnight garage near Bourbon Street.

We were visiting New Orleans to check out the area before relocating there. Originally we planned to stay in the suburbs (where we were looking for houses), but decided to stay int he French Quarter to get the "real" New Orleans experience. Hotel Le Marais was not only budget-friendly, but it was super nice! Very clean and the beds are very comfy! It's more than I expected.

It's right in the French Quarter without being in the middle of all the crazy nightlife. Close enough to walk to Bourbon Street, yet far enough to enjoy a good quiet night's sleep. We walked to the cathedral, the river front and beyond. The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and the complimentary welcome cocktail is a nice touch. Also love the complimentary WiFi. Bonus -- the pool courtyard makes for a cool evening hangout. It was pretty quiet on a Sunday night in May so we had the pool area to ourselves.

This is now our go-to hotel for the French Quarter. Clean, classy and budget-friendly boutique hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in an accessible room and the walk-in shower is nice and roomy.

Can't say enough about this hotel. My husband and I booked this hotel a few times when it was the St. Ann/Marie Antoinette. The hotel had great character with New Orleans charm. The courtyard and adjacent bar were quaint. We absolutely loved it! It has since been modernized. We stayed there once since it's revitalization. Love the new modern look. Bar and courtyard are still wonderful places to hang out with friends. I forgot to mention that the courtyard has a swimming pool. It's great on hot summer days and nights.

Pros - conveniently located between Bourbon Street and Royal Street and only a few blocks from Canal St. Located near many restaurants. Very Modern!!
Cons - rooms are pricey!

A small gem of a hotel. Close to everything yet on a quiet street. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. By the end of our three night stay we were on a first name basis with everyone. Rooms were clean. The AC was powerful [an important factor during the summer] The breakfast included bacon and sausage. Will definitely return!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in June and we truly enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly, as well as helpful with directions and advice on tours. The rooms were a bit small, but I think that is expected when going to New Orleans. Our room was very modern, clean, and comfortable. The hotel is in PERFECT location and we were able to walk everywhere. It is close to Bourbon, but we did not hear any noise from the street. There was some rowdiness in the hallway in the middle of the night, but security did take care of it and again, I think that would occur at any location you stay at by Bourbon street. The drink tickets were a nice touch- you could pick any drink you wanted. The complimentary breakfast was better than expected, and even included some hot items as well. The pool area was a bit small, but we were lucky to get one of the round loungers to relax on for about an hour. The fitness facility was nice and clean as well. I also enjoyed that the hotel provided bottled water in your room everyday, which is a must have for walking around in the New Orleans heat and humidity! It was nice to not have to buy it everyday. I would definitely recommend the Le Marais and would stay here on a future visit.

Friendly and super helpful service - from the bar staff, cleaners, front desk, valets - they were all lovely.

Amazing value. This rates as one of the top 5 hotels I've stayed in globally (and I've stayed in some really high end hotels like Westins, Four Seasons etc).

Free continental breakfast in the bar/seating area included in your stay - lovely to enjoy out in the courtyard by the pool.

Free drink vouchers to redeem against anything - including lovely cocktails - in the bar.

Complimentary bottled water in your room - replaced daily!

Complimentary iced tea by the pool daily.

Beautiful pool and courtyard with seating area to enjoy - lovely and shaded and quiet, despite the 100 degree heat. Such a luxury!

Beautifully appointed rooms. Quiet, private, lovely shuttered windows - we were on the top floor so had great views of some surrounding architecture that really helps get you in the spirit of the city.

Great choice of cocktails.

Valet parking prices were pretty steep at $27 per night but appreciate this is probably because you're right in the heart of New Orleans and given how amazing everything else was, I don't even really care!

Our first visit to New Orleans - beautiful city and a wonderful boutique hotel, perfectly located for local attractions and restaurants.

You can walk to the French Market, the Cabildo, Canal St, 1850 house/Pontalba buildings (well worth a visit), the beautiful antique shops of Royal St and the downtown civil war museum in Memorial Hall. GW Fins is great for more fine dining; Bubba Gump great food at great prices. I'm not a Bourbon St kind gal so we avoided that (easy to do). You're right in the thick of things at this hotel.

I honestly cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. I want to go back already.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 5th floor overlooking the courtyard/pool.
