“Great Location”
Reviewed 19 February 2007

Arrived at Hotel St Marie after a long and excrutiating amtrak journey from Atlanta. 11 planned hours and 5 extra in delay. A very usual occurence it appears.
So having missed the superbowl and it being 12.30am we headed straight to our room.
I wasn't completely up to speed and failed to heed the advice on this forum about asking for a courtyard facing room.
We were given a room facing onto the street which unfortunately smelt a bit musty. We asked for a change of room and the man on reception upgraded us to a balcony room. The room was a good size, clean and had a great view from the balcony of the hustle and bustle of bourbon street. We climbed into bed and were just dropping off when the bar at the end of the street started playing bon jovi - living on a prayer. We tried to ignore it but both ended up singing the chorus. Thankfully exhaustion got the better of us and we slept a long deep sleep, our first of 5 nights in the hotel st marie and new orleans.

If you have a flair for life and a need for atmosphere, the Hotel St. Marie is a must stay. The hotel is an amazing journey back in time,,, the architecture, decor and courtyard are Vieux Carre at it's finest......................ah, to love New Orleans! It is also centrally located, Armstrong Park off the historic Basin St. is just a short walk away. Also, right outside the front door, turn left and you're on Bourbon, (it doesn't get better than that) Royal St. and next stop Jackson Square.....................all at your immediate disposal! The hotel itself was a delight, more personality than anywhere I have ever stayed from London to Toronto the the W New Orleans, the Hotel St. Marie was definitely a Top Experience. The hotel, the rooms, the courtyard and the staff............................FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spent my wedding anniversary at the Hotel St. Marie and loved it.
Asked for and received a street balcony room. Did you hear the noise of the street ?- yeah, but hey, this is The French Quarter. Great location 1 block off of Bourbon and 5 blocks from Canal Street. Couldn't believe they even sent a bottle of champagne up to the room. What a nice touch! Maid service was great and everyone was friendly. Would definitely return.

THE HOTEL ST. MARIE, is a perfect place to stay when visiting the FRENCH QUARTER, in LOUISIANA. Absolutely hospitable, the staff was attentive, and welcoming. Though our reservations were for a large group, each party felt they were personally attended to with the greatest of consideration. From the point of making of reservations, throughout our stay, and in follow up afterwards, we were given the best of care. The rooms were inviting, clean, well maintained and most affordable. The desk clerks were delightful; friendly. The bell hops were personable, friendly, and willing to help without making us feel that our dollar was more important than our comfort. The city, still in the throws of post Katrina reality, was definitely regrouping/ rebuilding, but the people everywhere were thankful, kind, and thrilled to see visitors returning to the city again. I highly encourage America to go, invest your tourist dollar in rebuilding a fabulous town, and stay with the Valentinos at Hotel St. Marie, or any of the other Valentino properties. Respectfully, Karyn Weste r/ Petaluma, CA

  • Liked — location and service with a taste of history
  • Disliked — if I had to note anything I would change, it would be water pressure. I'd like more for the shower.

I had a wonderful stay at the Hotel St. Marie! it is right in the heart of the French Quarter, which made for an easy walk to everything I was interested in. It is a block off Bourbon Street, so the late night revelers did not keep me awake. It is a historic hotel with a lot of charm, and it also has a lot of modern amenities. While it does not have a business center, it DOES have an optional $4.95 charge per day that covers all your local & long distant calling, as well as internet usage. The attached restaurant serves delicious food. The staff was friendly, personable, professional, and knowlegeable, even at 2:00 in the morning. I am a professional meeting planner and I would recommend the St. Marie to anyone.

Hotel St. Marie was the perfect place to stay during our trip to New Orleans. It's one block off of Bourbon St. where all the hottest bars and nightlife are located. The hotel has a quaint atmosphere and the staff is amazing. I lost my luggage on the flight down and the front desk called me at 2:00 am to tell me it had arrived and then delivered it to my room!! Without them I would have been pantyless the entire rest of the trip!!! They also were great help with getting taxi's (to the Sugar Bowl-5 min taxi ride), recommending restaurants, and other places to see and tour. I wouldn't recommend any other place to stay then Hotel St Marie when you plan a trip to New Orleans!!!

We love this little hotel. We had a balcony room overlooking the street and it was a little noisy but not so bad. Our only negative comment is the room needed better housekeeping. Great location. Great staff.
