“The experience I was looking for!”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Hotel Provincial was exactly what I was looking for! Located in The French Quarter within walking distance to everything we wanted to do and see. I have stayed at far too many "Franchise" hotels for business travel and was looking for charm and local history to enjoy my vacation with my daughter and friends. Hotel Provincial feels like The French Quarter. Great updated bathrooms but history and charm abounds everywhere else! Love the Chandeliers and Antiques! Terry, the bellman is an absolute gem and greets guests in such a way that sets the mood for the whole experience. The only suggestion I have is, a little variety would be nice in the Continental Breakfast each day. Something minor to switch it up a bit for guests staying more then a day or two. LMLM

My son and I stayed at Hotel Provincal this past week (1/12 - 1/16. We needed some peace and quiet because my son was working and out late in the city. After a second morning of noise (housekeeping carts + paint scraping) the reservation manager at the hotel not only compted up for a night but gave us another beautiful and larger room for the the same price. They were VERY gracious!

I stayed with my husband for a long weekend anniversary celebration in January. The Provincial is perfectly situated just off the beaten track and yet within walking distance of all French Quarter attractions. This makes the hotel a little more quiet as an escape from the constant party that is the French quarter. This is New Orleans, so you will encounter noisy partiers returning to their rooms, disturbing the peace. Also walls could have a little more noise insulation for improvement. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Decor is not your cookie cutter Sheraton. It has more of the old world atmosphere and ambiance.
Staff is beyond helpful and housekeeping is fast and efficient. There is parking on premises, if you have a car. Proximity to all attractions means that your car will probably stay in the lot for your entire stay.
Others have complained about the free breakfast provided. I can not agree. It's just enough to get you going with good coffee, breads, cereals, yogurt, pastries, etc. Who wants to fill up before the gastronomic fest just blocks away?
Overall I would recommend this hotel for its staff, location, cleanliness, and ambiance.
And no.... We encountered no ghosts! Although the walking ghost tours make stops at the Provincial for the resident ghosts!

My partner and I may be in the minority in our preferences but we can't think of anything worse than staying in a big high rise hotel where you are one of hundreds of guests!
Hence why we chose to stay at the Hotel Provincial!
Other reviews that I had read mentioned that the hotel needed to be updated however i disagree- We found the hotel to be charming and really retained the beauty and charm that you would like from the French Quarter whilst at the same time had all of the modern day amenities we could have needed.
The service was mixed but generally was very good (maybe a few people weren't having the best day?) and the free continental breakfast is basic but was more than we needed as we planned to do most of our eating at our long list of recommended restaurants around town! The internet was very fast and FREE :)
Our room was gorgeous! They have used reproduction antique furniture of a very high quality and all of the decorations are very tastefully done. The only negatives i can think of are that the walkways can be a little bit noisy at night when people are coming and going so maybe try to get a room away from the stairs. The only other thing was that our room didn't have a window except for the ones in the door which face onto the walkway- we didn't really mind this but once again maybe ask for a room further from the stairs if you are looking to have a very isolated feeling retreat.
Overall I highly recommend this hotel especially considering it is incredibly priced and in the best location in town!

This hotel is very old and it is obviously from the moment you step through the doors. There are still slots behind the registration desk for each room. What a delight to see some of original pieces remain. We were met at the desk by a bellman who picked up our bags and carried them all the way to our room in building five. Along the entire route he gave us pertinent information about the hotel from when and where the breakfast is to security information. What a wonderful touch. The room was very small but very well appointed with modern conveniences. I would prefer a small room that has maintained the beauty and integrity of the original hotel than to have a new, generic room. The door is fabulous with the "Do Not Disturb" and "Maid Service" built into the door with an old brass dial.

We requested building five and were delighted to get our request. The building has only 8 rooms per floor and is wonderful. Our room overlooked the French Market. The only drawback was that the barges going up and down the river sounded their horns off an on all night so it was a bit noisy. The French Market also created a bit of noise beginning about 8:30 am.

The location was PERFECT. A few blocks away from the hotel is Jackson Square. Immediately behind is French Market. Royal and Bourbon Streets are only a few blocks away. I will definitely stay at Hotel Provincial during my next stay in New Orleans.

Unfortunately we did not experience any of the reported paranormal activity sometimes associated with building five but that's ok. We loved it just the same.

Room Tip: If you do not like noise than make sure you do not get building five OR ask for one that doesn't...

We have stayed here in the past and wanted to try a different building. Property. Has different building with different settings. The property is in wonderful shape and offers breakfast in the morning. The Ice house Bar was new since our last visit. You can walk a block to the market or two blocks to bourbon street but, you are on the quiet end about 5 blocks to Jackson Square.

Room Tip: Building 1 is right behind the office and the two levels have courtyard and pool views. The buildin...

Fantastic location in the heart of the French quarter. don't take a room in the back buildings, ask only for the main building or you'll be terribly disappointed. Great NO courtyard to have their included with room breakfast. If you don't like chicory coffee you'll have to go somewhere else to bring back a cup. Nice spacious room off the courtyard.

Room Tip: I am giving an excellent only because we demanded to change rooms after they tried to put us in a ro...
