“20 Year Reunion”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Went to New Orleans for a 20 year reunion with a group of friends who did a cross country bike ride in 1994 and stayed in New Orleans for 3 days as it was a rest stop for us.
We booked into the Prytania Park because of the location and were able to accommodate 20 of us. The rooms were clean and they had a good continental breakfast, but the only complaint is there are no laws in place on here people can smoke. You come down to the courtyard and people are sitting next to the food smoking away which makes it quite unpleasant, and where I come from smoking is not allowed in any area and if so you go out away at least 25 feet from that area which is a federal law, but they really don't seem to care there.
I would not stay there again.

Hotels3, General Manager at Prytania Park, responded to this review, 3 May 2014
Dear Readers, This is a 2nd post for this guest under a different ID. We apologized when she was onsite as a guest, we apologized in her 1st post, and I apologize again now. We are sorry for your discomfort at breakfast. Unfortunately, smoking in public can sometimes cause non smokers grief. The Federal law she refers to applies to smoking outside of a Federal Building, and the State of Hawaii has its own public faciltiy policies. Here in Louisana, our laws are a bit different, and outdoor patios and courtyards are exempt from the laws, no matter if food is being served or not.

However, I agree, it is a common curtesy not to smoke near a guest room or where breakfast is set up. Most guest follow this curtesy, but there will be those who do not, for whatever reason. We are not here to judge, but if brought to our attention, we will ask politely to move away from the breakfast area.

This particular issue happened 1 morning during their 4 day stay. Although the rooms are non-smoking, we do allow smoking outdoors. Unfortunately, some guests do not realize the impact of their habits in relation to where we serve breakfast. As soon as she complained, our Front Desk handled it. We were advised after 8am that about someone at the table near the end of the buffet was smoking. Our desk agent asked the guest to kindly move down the courtyard path if they wished to smoke since it was bothersome to several guests, and they kindly obliged.

I am glad to know she enjoyed her room and found it clean and comfortable. Even through the smoke, its nice that she enjoyed breakfast as well.

Hotel staff very nice, price was good, free parking, beds very comfortable, lots of hot water for showers. But overall, it has seen better days. In any other city, this hotel would be considered a dump...old furniture and carpet, musty smell, missing light bulbs, poor water pressure and lighting, and a bit dirty. No assistance was offered to help us carry heavy luggage to the second floor. I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Master Suite, which had plenty of room and 2 full bathrooms for 4 adults. It was locat...

Great location. Short ride on the rail car to the French Quarter. Perfect for a couple wanting to get away. Would not recommend taking small children to the French Quarter. Breakfast was ok, needs more of a variety.

My boyfriend and I booked the cheapest room option (full size bed) for Easter weekend and we thought the place was great! The room was really cute and clean. The bed was super soft. The staff were pretty friendly, and more importantly, helpful. I cannot believe it was such a great price and included free parking! I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2014. The location in the lower garden district is convenient to the Charles St streetcar. Since I was driving I really appreciated the free parking as the parking fees at French Quarter hotels is high.

Our room was on two levels with a spiral staircase to the queen bed at the upper level. I thought that would allow a little privacy for each of us. But, the staircase is difficult to maneuver with luggage or if you have to get up for a bathroom visit during the night. I would not choose that type of room again. The beds were very comfortable and I did sleep well. It is a bit noisy, but turning on the room fan helped drown out some of that.

The breakfast is only from 7-9 am so you need to be an early riser. It is a basic breakfast with coffee, tea, juice, cereal and a few pastries.

All and all it was a good stay. Comfy beds and free parking were the best amenities.

Room Tip: No pool, that was a mistake on my part. I would not choose the two level room because if the spiral...

The room itself and hotel are nice, the location is great and the continental breakfast is very good, the staff are very friendly. The hotel however is noisy because of the traffic constantly driving by on prytania st, and also people walking (or stomping!) up and down the stairs. Unfortunately we were positioned right next to the stairs and right on prytania st so we really didnt get a lot of sleep. If you do stay here ask for rooms away from stairs and prytania st. The housekeeping is ok but upon check in I found a used water bottle missed by housekeeping in our room, as well as a dirty carpet and dirt in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Away from stairs and prytania st
