“French Quarter Oasis”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Located on Rue Bienville between Bourbon and Royal Street, Hotel Mazarin offers a place to take a deep breath and escape the chaos of Bourbon Street and surrounds. Throughout our 5 night stay we found the staff to be friendly, helpful, and just plain pleasant. Our room wasn't huge, but it was big enough for my husband, myself, and our young adult daughter. The beds are very comfortable and the linens top quality. I particularly appreciated the quiet and effective air conditioning. My only real complaint was that the room didn't have enough drawers to put our clothes away.

Breakfast was simple, but very good. It's nice to be able to walk down to the courtyard, enjoy a hot, filling breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast, muffin, croissant, bagels, grits, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, juice, and coffee or tea. So often "breakfast included" means gummy muffins and bad coffee. Not so here.

We enjoyed the hotel's location. We're walkers, so we walked to Frenchman Street and into the CBD and Julia Street. An easy walked to outstanding French Quarter restaurants.

I wish I could give Hotel Mazarin 4.5 stars; close, but not quite 5.

Room Tip: The hotel offers double queens which was nice when traveling as a family.

This was the second visit to New Orleans. The first time we stayed at the Royal Sonasta, although a wonderful Hotel, we much preferred the Hotel Mazarin, it being the friendliest Hotel we have ever stayed in, and one of the cleanest. The Hot Breakfrest was so yummy. We are
still talking about "Soloman" the awesome doorman. The desk persons, day and night, were
also the best. All in all, the only place to stay in New Orleans. It was Awesome. Thank You All.

Room Tip: We had room 220, facing the street, and really enjoyed it, the 3 nights we were there.

My friends and I stayed three nights at this lovely boutique hotel. The complimentary breakfast buffet included hot and cold foods, fruit, several types of breads etc. and was delicious! The rooms were beautiful and comfortable, and the staff friendly, helpful, and a pleasure. One of our group celebrated her birthday on our last day; she was treated with a birthday cake made of pancakes (fluffy and delicious!) topped with a candle! We all loved this charming hotel and felt it was a great value.

Room Tip: We had a second floor corner room and found it roomy and quiet.

Thoroughly pleased with this hotel. Excellent staff attentiveness and service. Excellent room quality. Just 100 yards off Bourbon street and next to Royal street - very good location for our long weekend in New Orleans. Breakfast buffet was only average, but that doesn't spoil a 5 star rating.

PERFECT location within the French Quarter, close to shopping, bars, restaurants, sights. The staff was extremely helpful, always available and very accommodating. Our room was clean, beautiful, well decorated and had a great view of Bienville. Breakfast in their courtyard every morning was a treat as well. We absolutely LOVE New Orleans and can't wait to go back - and we will definately stay at Hotel Mazarin again!!

It was the first time in New Orleans and found location great to walk to the attractions in the French Quarter. The room was large with a large bathroom. The breakfast included eggs,bacon,sausage,yogurt,juices,breads,fruit cups and cereals. You can eat in the courtyard or inside. The coffee was great also. Friendly staff that was helpful on anything we needed. Their is a wine bar attached to hotel that was nice.

After reviewing several hotels before making a decision on where to stay in the French Quarters I decided on the Hotel Mazarin. I am so glad I made that decision. Everything was PERFECT from the time we arrived to the time we left. They rooms were very clean, well decorated, and the bed was very comfortable! The hotel is in the perfect location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They recommended eating at a local place called Felipe's and we had the best fresh fish tacos ever. The breakfast was really good with several choices including hot and cold food. Best I have had in a long time. And to top it off it was 100% smoke FREE!! Can't wait to go back!
