A beautiful old hotel, with very attentive staff, just like most other reviewers said. Unfortunately, there are problems that sorely need attention. The water faucets leaked. All the faucet handles were very loose. The headboard in the adjacent room repeatedly banged against the wall quite loudly ( and no - not from an ardent couple ). The noise level from the hall was loud, but not nearly as loud as the bathroom vent fan and the air conditioner. Getting a cup of coffee required going to the bar and asking for a cup to go. It was free, but these days, in room coffee is fairly the norm. It was both a birthday and an anniversary for us. We were delighted to find champagne and a chocolate birthday cake waiting in our room. So, 5s to the staff, but the lack of maintenance is dragging this hotel down to only a 3.

Room tip: Before unpacking, turn on the air conditioner and the bathroom vent fan. If they are too loud, ask for a different room. Repeat until satisfied.

I stayed at the Le Pavillion for a work conference. I was excited but nervous because of the haunted stories. My husband ended up coming too which I was grateful for since I have an imaginative mind when it comes to spooky stuff. The hotel is over 100 years old so seeing the decor and high ceilings was neat. Some of the paintings were creepy though. The hot tub pool area on top is great. My husband loved the PB and J at night. He insisted on going down every night we were there. It is a short walk to the French Quarter, but not too far. It is close to lots of Restaurants. We loved Mothers on Poydras. Didn't see any ghosts but heard stories from the staff. Poor sleep quality is attributed to my worry of ghosts, but the rooms were very comfortable. Conference rooms were not thought out and cramped, but not the hotels fault. A fun unique experience while in NOLA!

Room tip: try not to get a room on a haunted floor

Lucky to find this superb hotel at a reduced rate. Stayed for three nights in November 2013. From their charismatic doormen through to their friendly and efficient reception staff, we were made most welcome. Built in 1907, this hotel retains all it's historic class while offering modern service. A real delight after travelling through from Nashiville, Memphis staying in hotels of variable quality.

Amazing atmosphere, friendly staff, all you could ask for.

Room tip: Rooms on 6th floor are a good size and well above any street noise

Ever slip away for a weekend, and find yourself breaking on the hotel you state at on your return trip? We did.

My wife and I married in New Orleans in 2007, and any excuse to return their is a good one. We usually stay at a name hotel near the French Quarter or on the river, but decided to change that process this go around.

I read all the reviews on trip advisor regarding this hotel, but we wanted out of the crazy area, and the change of pace.

It started with the warm welcome we received from the doorman, and they all but opulent settings of the hotel lobby. Before we had even completed checking, we felt at home.

The entire experience was a joy to behold, from the elaborate crystal chandeliers, the beautiful holiday decorations, the brocade-draped elevator doors, and the genuine staff ethic of "happy to serve", We felt like we were enjoying the very best of an Internet be and be experience in a grand old hotel.

Our room was small but beautifully appointed, beautifully decorated, and most enjoyable (it was an end unit, so we had an additional window for light).

Though we seldom eat in the hotel we stayed in, we enjoyed some of the best gumbo I've eaten in New Orleans ever, at the bar.

But the best was yet to come. We found out there was a rooftop terrace, hot tub, and pool, which upon inspection, provided breathtaking views of the city, and at night of the bridge to Algiers.

Were we just lucky?

Perhaps, but rest assured we will go out of our way on our next trip here to enjoy this delightful hotel.

PS: The physical location, and ease of getting in and out of this hotel was most appreciated.

Room tip: Shop for best "value" package. We tried several weeks to get the "deal" we wanted... Doesn't change the reality, but definitely adds to our enjoyment.

There's nothing bad to say about this hotel at all. The staff was extremely courteous and polite. Check in and out was a breeze. Wonderful location. The rooms are large and comfortable. Beds that will put you to sleep in mere minutes. A ceiling fan. Nice bathrooms. Nice restaurant. I love this place!!!!!!
