Hotels at a Glance
“Awesome! The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. The room was modern and in excellent condition. FREE PARKING with SECURITY!!!! Shares a parking lot with the hospital. This place is definitely a hidden jewel. It will be my hotel of choice whenever I return! I have no complaints.”
“The hotel has major character with an ambience that is quaint and elegant. Our room was spacious and simply beautiful. The staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful. The overall experience for our first trip to NOLA left us not wanting to leave at all and a key component of that feeling was feeling at home in this establishment. I already want to go back and we just left this morning!”
“Courtyard rooms are traditional Vieux Carre’, quiet, and roomy. Location makes this hotel perfect with short walking distance to Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, and Rouses Market. Staff members were friendly, informative and efficient. Valet parking was worth every penny. Pool is about 4.5 ft deep throughout with in pool wall bench. Also…the hotel is supposed to be haunted!”
“I Can’t Wait to go back to Hotel St. Marie! Hotel St. Marie is in the perfect location to the French Quarter! The hotel is exceptionally clean and the staff are the best! Hotel St. Marie is within walking distance to all that New Orleans has to offer. Bourbon Street is just a short walk away but yet far enough that the hotel isn’t noisy. The Courtyard is so beautiful to sit and have your morning coffee purchased from the cafe onsite.”
“I can’t say enough good things about this hotel. Perfect location, easy to get to and convenient to tours and shopping. My only regret is I couldn’t stay longer. This hotel has 18 rooms and is very secure and very friendly staff. I will definitely be going back again and will recommend to all my friends and family.”
