My husband and I decided that for our trip to New Orleans, we would "hotel hop" and experience a few different places while we were there; we stayed at Le Pavillon our last night there for one night, and wished we had stayed there the entire long weekend, hands-down. It's located just across Canal St. (basically "on Bourbon", though Bourbon changes names) from Bourbon St., but is about 4 or 5 blocks down and in more of the business district. We were able to safely and quickly get to everything from Harrah's Casino, to the Aquarium, to everything up and down Bourbon St, on foot no matter what time of night or day. The staff there, from the Bellhop to the Bartender were impeccable and welcoming and more than helpful - they even let us BORROW two of their brand new $40 umbrellas for the afternoon during the ridiculous downpour, even though they already had a few used ones open...small detail, but it was the icing on the cake after being completely wowed and enchanted from the moment we walked in the door.
The roof-top pool and jacuzzi were incredible: romantic, amazing view, and beautifully "landscaped". Everything about the hotel: carpet, walls, windows, bathroom (even the shower head was SPARKLING!) was so clean you could have eaten off of it. The bathrooms had an abundance of towels and washcloths, and the hallways to the rooms felt like you were in an old historic home, not a hotel at all...each room even has it's own doorbell! You will not see "can lighting" or "modern touches" here...everything from the elevator doors to the recessed ceilings around the amazing chandeliers is done in beautiful murals, and you will be amazed at some of the massive antique pieces throughout (and the stories that go with them!).
An absolute gem, and we WILL be back...for more than one night!
