We have stayed at Club La Pension 5-6 times but this was our first time since it was remodeled. The remodeling is quite lovely. We had a Studio this time on the 4th floor. It was a loft type, not much privacy for two couples. We did not have a table. We are timeshare owners so we were disappointed without a stove or table. We would definitely stay again. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Room Tip: Location is worth any other problems.

This is a delightful small boutique-style hotel located ion the French Quarter of New Orleans on Decatur Street, within walking distance to Bourbon Street. There is an Information Center virtually next door where you can book tours, & the tour coaches pickup is on the corner of the street. There is a restaurant on the corner, & many other restaurants & clubs in easy walking distance. We chose this hotel as a timeshare exchange through RCI, and were very pleased with the décor & ambiance, as well as the helpful staff. There are 2 outdoor rooftop balconies where you can sit in the evening. The room was small, but had a partial kitchen where we could make breakfast & coffee.
Loved the quirky, French-style décor!

Arrived to find our room not suitable for 4 adults, we were given a 1 bedroom with hide-a-bed. We were expecting a suite that would provide us more privacy but this was a studio. The front desk was very accommodating and worked hard to find us a suitable room which they did. It was slightly smaller but was wonderful. If you have the Decatur side of the hotel expect noise especially on the weekend, it calmed down during the week. I was pleasantly surprised to have maid service and fresh towels. Wonderful coffee available every morning in the lobby if you choose not to make it yourself. The tour operation just outside the entrance is good, but make sure you get a receipt as you pay the balance when reaching your tour. The rates they give you are often discounted and the receipt is required.

The location is wonderful, right on Decatur. We were close to everything we wanted to do and seemed to be a gathering place for our other family members in other hotels.

This was our second time at this resort. The last was three weeks before Katrina in 2005. They have done major renovations since our last stay. We were in 206 this time.

The good:

* Location, location, location. They are on the edge of the French Quarter near Canal Street and an easy walk from anywhere within the French Quarter, the Warehouse District, and the St Charles Street street car for going to the Garden District.

* The units give you a lot of space. We had a two bedroom unit during both of our visits. Last time we had our son with us. This time we didn’t and the second room gave us a place to store my clothing.

* There is a limited kitchen area with a small refrigerator, so you can have breakfast in the room if you want to.

* The staff is very helpful and friendly.


The not so good:

* There is a street behind the resort that is more or less an alley. In the early morning, taxi drivers park there in what looks like a make shift taxi queue for the nearby Marriott. They shout at each other and honk their horns. This, of course, wakes you up quite early. This might be less of an issue if you’re in a room on an upper floor.

* Our second bathroom was very small and had almost zero shelf space. Luckily I don’t need much, and I let my wife have the larger bathroom.

* There is not a lot of space for storing clothing. There’s plenty of closet space, but very limited drawer space.


Advice:

* Do not rent a car unless you plan on a road trip outside of the area. You don’t need one. Taxis to/from the airport charge a flat rate of $33 (at least for two people).

Room Tip: Try to get one on an upper floor.

We had a 1 bedroom. Was nicely decorated and newly updated. In old historic building. Unit was small but accomplished task. The 1 bedroom unit only had a refrigerator and microwave not a full kitchen. Bathroom was large. Awesome walkin shower.
Great rooftop balcony for relaxing. Washer and dryer available. Parking was expensive at 35 a day, but convenient and always retrieved car quickly.
Front desk staff friendly and addresses by name.
We had view of alley. But we were hardly ever in room. We were work up each morning at 3am by garbage truck outside, And We were on 4th floor. Their trash runs daily too! But I was able to fall back asleep quickly.
Can't beat the location. Across the street from French market and only 5 minute walk to bourbon street.

The location is great. A two or three minute walk got us to Bourbon St. Several restaurants and either the street cars or busses to take us to most of the places we wanted to go. Our rooms were larger than expected, in excellent condition, and the stove top, refrigerator, wine cooler, coffee maker and televisions all appeared to be new. Every morning there was always two or three choices of flavored coffee and tea available in the lobby and there was always ice water with fresh citrus there when we came back in the afternoon or evening. But best of all is the wonderful front desk staff working there. Charmaine, Chanelle and Jonah are as helpful, friendly and kind as we could possibly ask for. They were always ready to assist or help us in any way they could at any time. They truly exemplify Southern hospitality. Thank You from Colleen and Ed - San Diego

We are Bluegreen owners, and we were more than satisfied with Club la Pension. The location is beyond convenient for everything we wanted to do in New Orleans. The luxury of our one bedroom suite was more than expected. Club la Pension is a wonderful place to park, walk, and enjoy all there is to do, see, eat, and enjoy in the French Quarter and riverfront areas. The staff is friendly and knowlegeable. Chanelle, Jonah, and Charmaine were helpful and informative. Club la Pension is the perfect place to stay to experience the New Orleans French Quarter. Jimmy J's, one block over on Chartres, serves a fantastic, reasonably priced meal with friendly and entertaining staff.
