“A+ for quality, cleanliness, comfort & customer service”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

I almost hate to review this hotel and let out the Best Kept Secret in New Orleans. Normally I wouldn't think of staying outside the French Quarter but this time we needed to have a car so I was looking for the free parking. This hotel has so much more than free parking! It is a beautifully maintained pre-Civil war property. Having done some renovations myself I noticed what beautiful work they did in the bathroom with the tile and the granite countertops not to mention the Toto toilets. How many places have you lodged that had TWO fireplaces? One in the bedroom and one in the bathroom! The linens were top notch as well as the mattress. Beautiful hardwood floors, flat screen tv, coffee maker, mini fridge, microwave and writing desk....these all came with and I know some of the French Quarter Hotels that charge much more do not have such nice amenities.

We actually enjoyed going to the breakfast area each morning. The woman who worked there did a fantastic job and you could see she really liked helping people. Most hotels have a self serve, Styrofoam atmosphere but not here! Ceramic dishes for the cereal and pastries, milk and juice in glass pitchers, the staff offering to make waffles, I have to say it was a nice way to start the day.

You can tell that the people who run the hotel care about quality, cleanliness and customer service. And it doesn't hurt to have a top-notch location. I was fully aware that check in is at the Prytania Park Hotel around the corner. I see that's a mistake a lot of people make so if you're going to book just keep that in mind. And tell the breakfast lady I said Hi!

This hotel is small and quaint and well located for visits into the French quarter and the Garden district. The only downside is that the rooms and beds seem rather small after some of the suites we have stayed in.

This is a great old hotel in a good location with free parking. The room was large,clean and comfortable. It is near the St. Charles streetcar stop. The hotel also offer free breakfast every morning. We will return to this hotel in the future.

Please note: the check in is kitty corner across the street from the hotel!

We got a great deal on this hotel through Hotwire, and are really happy by how nice the accommodations turned out to be. The building is a old converted mansion from the 1840s or so (wished they had provided the historic significance of the building along with the other information that is left for the guests, like how to use the phone, tv channels, etc.). Had to be 20ft ceilings and a queen size four poster bed. They offer a limited number of parking (free) at the location, more at the office, free continental breakfast and wi-fi.

Complaints: The desk clerk on duty when we arrived late evening on 11/7 had the enthusiasm of a slug. She really didn't appear to want to be there. Really, would a smile have killed her? However, the next day, Christine was on duty, and she was great and helpful to everyone. As we were doing a girls weekend, we wished that there had been a second mirror in the room, as the only mirror was in the bathroom and is hard to get ready when someone is using it. Also, we had to roll up a towel to put under the door, since so much light from the hall was coming in.

Best idea: We were there for several days, so we walked 2-3 blocks down St Charles (away from the quarter) and bought a 3 day pass for the streetcar, which picks up two blocks from the hotel. Just a few dollars - and was well worth it. You do NOT want to drive in the Quarter if you can. Chaos, chaos, chaos.

Just remember to grab a map from the hotel lobby, and once the street car drops you off at Canal, unless you are in-firmed, it is fairly easy to navigate the entire quarter on foot-make sure to bring comfortable walking shoes! Also, just in case, grab a pen from the hotel lobby to keep with you, so you'll always have the hotels name/address/number, just in case.

Lovely hotel albeit with split location accommodation. Plus points excellent location to town and close to street cars. Negative side is that I have difficulty with stairs and asked for ground (first) floor but was given a second floor room. Also, although breakfast was clearly being served inside a site only feet from our accommodation, we were told at check in to partake breakfast at a sister hotel Prytania Park on another street which was somewhat inconvenient and cold and draughty as it was to be consumed outside in a courtyard. All check ins were at the Prytania Park and we did raise this point at check out where we were told we had been given the wrong information at check in although the apology was a bit late. For this reason I would feel unhappy to recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Reiterate if you require no stairs at book-in and follow with a reminder asking for confirmation.

This was the first trip to New Orleans for my husband and me since our college days (quite a few years ago). I chose this hotel based on the reviews and location and was not disappointed. It was quiet, secure and in a great location, only two blocks from a St. Charles streetcar stop in the lower Garden District. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay here again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time out to write a review. I am so thrilled to know we made your return to New Orleans and your weekend experiences a wonderful one, and do hope you will come back again. But this time, don't make it that many years apart, as we are just a hop, skip, and jump away from your hometown. Au Bientot,

I must say that it was the 1st time my husband and I visited New Orleans. Upon arrival to this traditionally, southern elegance hotel. We noticed that the area even looked quiet from the street way. Couldn't find the office right off by the gentleman walk right out to assist us. Customer service office was sparkling. Customer service was very polite, timely manner. No problem finding the room where we didn't have to pay for park not one day. Parking really close to our stay. :) The rooms were awesome, comfortable, clean, pleasant, relaxing, 5 min. from Canal, Bourbon Streets. City Park was close. Han fun watching the SAINTS get ready for tailgating, It was nice to see that through it all this is still a STRONG city. Housekeeping did an awesome job. She did her job, also making sure we got our belongings we left :( Breakfast area was light and normal but, good. We would always return to the hotel Prytania Oaks Hotel rocks :). THANKS for helping us celebrate our 4th wedding Anniversary. SAINTS ROCK :)
