“French Quarter Character w/out the Hoopla, Convenient”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

We took a family trip to New Orleans. Hotel Provincial was in the French Quarter but away from the stereotypical Bourbon St atmosphere people think of there. Our small children enjoyed the "pretty" room, the pool(s) and even the continental breakfast. It would be nice if the food was changed a bit for variety but not complaining b/c it's a great hotel, with helpful and kind staff and at a great price. Be aware you are paying for nightly parking when you get there but you will do that everywhere in the French Quarter. It's just a lovely atmosphere to spend time in New Orleans.

Stayed here with bus trip. Found it comfortable, clean, & quaint. Older building that was remodeled someone back but remains a nice place to stay. Haven't seen a fuse box in a Hotel room in many years, this one had it. Beds comfortable, air conditioning excellent. Some old furniture should be replaced, one of two chairs had broken springs and we couldn't sit in out. The other chair was usable, but had a loose arm. Did have two dressers, but being older style the drawers didn't have sliders & stuck a bit when opening. Not a big issue, just added to the quaintness of the place. Pool looked nice and was used by many. Nice courtyard area with a fountain to sit in and relax. Breakfast in the bar area was ok, with, tight quarters, but doable. Enjoyed our stay

The Hotel Provincial is a great place to stay in the French Quarters. It is within easy walking distance of Bourbon Street, Cafe du Monde, and many great restaurants. The rooms are beautifully maintained. The service is excellent. One note to Internet users: They block websites, including YouTube. Fortunately, we were able to access the web by tethering our mobile phones. Hopefully, the hotel will change its website blocking.

The good aspects of this hotel definitely outweigh the bad, but I couldn't give it a 5/5 for a few reasons--The Good: Amazing location! 2 blocks from Bourbon Street, 2 blocks from Jackson Square & Cafe du Monde, all while not feeling like you're in the thick of it. The pools looked really nice...wish I would have had time to use them. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed decently comfortable. The Bad: The room itself was fine; not the best or worst I've seen. It pretty much had the bare minimum I would expect for the price--no mini-fridge, the free WIFI was terribly slow and would constantly go out, the continental breakfast was ho-hum. (Just go to Stanley down the street and order the Bananas Foster French Toast--you'll thank me.) The only thing that really bugged me was a slight issue I had with housekeeping. I didn't think that leaving spare change out on the dresser was an open invitation to take it nor did I think that by leaving a clean, souvenir cup nowhere near a trashcan would get it thrown away. I was wrong on both accounts so just watch what you leave out when you're gone from your room for the day. All things considered, I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to NOLA for the location alone. Also, it's a welcome change from the lesser ranked hotel chains in the area, with 3 times the history and personality.

We picked this hotel for two reasons: atmosphere and location. It had both and much more.
The location can't be beat. It is in the French Quarter, very close to Jackson Square and within easy walking distance of almost anything. We walked to Bourbon Street, Riverwalk, Canal Street, Cafe du Mond, etc. It is also on a quiet street, a big plus.
It definitely has atmosphere. This hotel has several ( I think five) separate buildings. It has two pools in different places, and several of the rooms look out on each pool. We happened to be on the ground floor ( room 310) which was in fact in a little kind of alley. Our section of the hotel had a charming, enclosed courtyard with chairs, tables, trees, and a fountain, and I believe that there were other courtyards in other parts of the hotel. The room was excellent. It had a bed with a canopy ( our family in the room next door didn't have one), and a wonderful mattress. There was plenty of room and a nice bathroom. I really can't say anything but good things about our room. It was both atmospheric and comfortable.
And I must mention the staff... They are WONDERFUL and really make this hotel extra special. A very gracious lady named Sherlaine ( I apologize if I have misspelled that) made all of our tour arrangements before we left home and had everything ready for us in an envelope. She put our family members in the room next door to us. She was always there to help. Another person who deserves a special mention is David the valet. He knew the answer to EVERY kind of question, from directions to how to make the Internet work in our room and was extremely helpful. The female night security guard patiently gave us directions each night. Everyone showed real Southern hospitality and graciousness!
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Plus... If my rating of this hotel shows the " fitness center" as being rated "terrible," that is because I clicked on that category by mistake. There is no fitness center, but I couldn't seem to unclick that rating!

Room Tip: I loved our room on the quiet alley. It was 310, if that helps. It''s possible that the room...

We were in Bldg. #5 and had plenty of room in a 1st floor room with 2 beds. The mattresses were amazing--and we had feather pillows! yay! The beds were so comfortable that I even took short afternoon naps. Also had tables and chairs in a little courtyard for the three 1st floor rooms. There were 2 pools on the property, and they were very clean. There was a nice continental breakfast each morning at 8am. We parked the car there; valet parking was very good and cheaper than other hotels in the area. The women at the front desk were very friendly; we even got hugs as we were leaving! Great location! It was at the quiet end of Chartres, only a block from the grocery and 2 blocks from Bourbon St and French Mkt, 3 blocks from Cafe du Monde. We would definitely recommend it!

Room Tip: Our room 515 was handicap accessible on the 1st floor, very large room w/flat screen TV. Could sit o...

If you're not crazy about large hotel chains, this is the place for you. Located on a quiet residential block in the French Quarter the Hotel Provincial has the perfect location for those who want to be close to the action without all the noise. My husband and I have stayed at the Provincial many times over the last several years. The staff, especially Natalie and David, remain the hotel's greatest asset.
