“Not Just a Room...an Experience!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

As a history buff was worth the stay just to experience the place. The building dates back to the 1890’s and is chucked full of history. Located within walking distance of the the river front, convention center and the French Quarter it’s a great place to stay. Due to the age of the building, you have to forgive how dated the rooms are, they are all kept very clean and the staff does it’s very best to make you feel at home.

Be sure to take a few minutes in the evening and enjoy the view from the pool on the top of the building, it’s a great place to get a way for a few.

Positives - Complimentary PB&J sandwiches in the evening served downstairs to help you fall asleep. The staff, the atmosphere - totally French and totally New Orleans!

Negatives - A bit on the pricy side, but then again so is everything in the Big Easy.

We (my wife and I) did a trip to New Orleans in July and with TripAdvisor help we booked the Le Pavillion. We like it a lot, close to the French area. The staff helped us will all we needed, very friendly, etc... (the best of all).

The hotel is quietly elegant and full of old-world charm. The service staff was unfailingly professional, polite, and personable. Its location made it easy to get to many of the places we wanted to visit. Would certainly stay there again.

Le Pavillon is an older hotel with charm. The hotel provides a great location that is adjacent to but not in the quarter. You have to trek about five blocks to get to the middle of the quarter but for most grownups, this is a good thing. You are close enough to have a good time without being forced to try and sleep in the middle of it all.

The hotel is older and you have to be prepared for what that entails to the downside:
-Limited elevator service
-Smaller bathrooms
-Limited storage

On the plus side, you will find:
-Great free wifi
-A charming bar in the lobby
-Great location

The valet parking is a hose job at $30+ per day but you can get your car any time. The valet lot is actually adjacent to the hotel.

There is ice service on each floor. So, there is no need to roam from floor to floor. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is no in-room coffee service. Be prepared for pricey room service.

They do provide a hair dryer but ours was lousy. However, housekeeping immediately replaced it with a good one upon our request.

The PB&J theme is kitchey but cute. The cookies are really good.

All-in-all this is a great place for the right price. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Higher rooms mean less road noise from Poydras if there is an event at the super dome. HOWEVER, elev...

My husband and I stayed at the Le pavillion for our 34th wedding anniversary. The beautiful ambiance of this historic hotel and the friendly staff upon arrival made us aware we had chosen correctly. From the moment we drove in, the valet staff and bellhop service was quick and friendly. They removed our luggage from the car and whisked it up to our room. Awesome! We had a great time with my son and his girlfriend relaxing and visiting with them in the antiqued furnished lobby of the hotel after watching the New Orleans Saints win its preseason game. Go Saints! The hotel is within walking distance to the Superdome (an added plus).
I especially appreciated the added fluffy pillows in the closet as I enjoy sleeping with extra pillows.
I found the ceiling fan over the bed a great southern charm which we appreciate in our own home.
The bed was comfortable, the rooms were clean and smoke free. The hallways were even decorated with antiques at the elevator entrances.

This was our second time staying at Le Pavillon. The staff is always courteous and helpful. It is within walking distance to just about everything that one would come to NOLA for. Rooms are clean and spacious and well equipped.

We normally love it here. Came last month and had a great experience. One of the elevators was broken so long waits,etc. no big deal. Here exactly one month later. The same elevator is still broken. What the heck? Also when we checked in last night, we could not get into out room so they sent engineering up to help us. He came back a few minutes later and changed the entire door knob ( the bell boy wanted us to just keep trying with the key). So all was well. We were out all day shopping and enjoying NOLA. Just got back to the room. Can't get in. This hotel needs to get their act together. I am not happy. For the $ u spend, u should b able to get into ur room especially when they know it's a problem. Also that's if u can EVEN GET ON the elevator to get to your room
