4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed five days in NOLA at this hotel. The hotel is an older one but very well kept, with clean and recently remodeled rooms. Very well located next to french quarter. Walking distance from everything. Great eclectic front desk staff. Comfy bed, nice washroom. All good!

The hotel itself is pretty decent. The only issue I had with how tall the bed was; you almost needed a step ladder to get up on the thing, but it was clean, bed was comfortable, and the staff was nice. I wish there had been windows in our room, but I can't say that's the case for all of... More

I had one of the most bizarre experiences staying in this hotel that I have ever had traveling. I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone after having read all of the positive reviews of this quite strange New Orleans property. My "interior" room was windowless and smelly. When I asked the receptionist downstairs to remove my fridge, which... More

We needed a one-night place to stay to bridge our Wyndham timeshare. The Pelham was just across the street and it was perfect. It located about three short blocks from the French Quarter. The room was big and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Great location, very close to the french quarter. Very comfortable beds, shower with high pressure of water (good after walking all day). Very clean. Kind staff at the front desk (specially Troy, quite a character!). Too cold in reception and halls due to the extremelly low temperature of the aircon (not necessary). But this is a problem you will face... More

Excellent location near the french quarter. Great beds. Clean. High pressure of water in the shower. Nice people in the front desk. Just too cold due to the aircon, like everywhere else in NOLA. But of course you can turn it off in your room. I would chose this hotel, good value for the price.

We stayed there April 9 thru April 12 paid $956 plus $130 parking. I had booked a "Premium King" room. While the hotel is within walking distance of the French Quarter, casino, pier - which is great, there is no coffee pot in the rooms; coffee in the lobby is only available until 11 a.m; the restaurant adjoining the hotel...

We were very disappointed with this hotel. The room smelt musty and damp. There was no fan in the bathroom to disperse steam from the shower. And the room was dirty. All the skirting boards were full of dust. Luckily we only used the room to sleep in as we were so busy enjoying ourselves in New Orleans. We were... More

This place was better than I expected. It was cleaner than I expected for what we paid. We had an interior room with no windows (room 318). Double beds. This room is made for professional basketball players. The beds are 4 feet off the ground and the ceiling is 20 feet tall. We felt like when they shrink you and... More

We stayed here on the way to Vegas from Australia. So close to everything but far enough away from the noise when it's time to sleep. Plenty of towels, bed comfortable, no complaints. Nice restaurant on the corner for breakfast, 24 hour convenience store around the corner, street car round the corner. Good walk to bourbon street. Nice walk if... More
