We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Hotel St. Marie and were very pleased. The location is perfect. Just steps away from Bourbon St. and all the action but far enough away to be quiet. We had a courtyard facing balcony on the 3rd floor (room 302). The room was spacious (nice since there were 3 of us) and we loved having dressing area separate from the bathroom. The hotel is old but I think that just adds to it's charm. the public areas and our room were very clean. I checked the website ahead of time to see if there was free internet and it said there was free internet access(wired, I assumed) in the rooms and free wireless in the public areas. When we arrived we found out that there was free wireless in the rooms too. The only down side was the lack of furniture on the balcony. A few rooms had furniture out there but not all. At first I thought we could just pull the 2 chairs from the room out there whenever we wanted to sit out there but that didn't work because the french door leading to the balcony only opened on one side and it was a very narrow opening (about 18") so there was no way we could get the chairs through the opening. If being able to sit on your balcony is important to you ask for a room that has balcony furniture or at the very least a room that both sides of the french door will open so you can bring the room chairs out. a couple across the courtyard from us could open both of their french doors and brought their room furniture out. Ours was painted shut. this was not a big deal to us though. We didn't use the pool or go sit in the courtyard but it looked very nice. I would not hesitate to stay at the Hotel St. Marie again.
