“Perfect location for a weekend getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

We just stayed at the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel on a long getaway weekend and it was perfect for our itinerary. We started our weekend on a Thursday and were politely greeted on arrival. The staff is very friendly and helpful and told us about some live music later in the evening that night. Our room was clean and neat with a nice view of downtown and the pool a few levels below. Daily service was prompt and left any of our personal items undisturbed. We love the extra special service of opening the door or hailing a cab which is expected in a city and done with a smile here. Take advantage of the knowledge of the front desk to suggest great restaurants and places to see from the French Quarter to the Riverwalk to the Garden District. We will definitely be back and thank you for a memorable stay.

This hotel is close to everything you could possibly want to see & do. Room 718 was a nice size as well as the bathroom. This room overlooked the roof top pool. The decor in the lobby was beautiful. Valet was $32.48/day. Breakfast for 2 was $44 and room service for 1 (new orleans burger) was $22. If you are unable to get into a restaurant or don't want to be out late at night try Oceana Grill, they will deliver here!
I will definitely stay here the next time I visit New Orleans.

The best thing about the Pere Marquette is the location. It is one block out of the French Quarter across Canal Street from Bourbon Street. So its close to everything, but also very quiet. We never heard anyone else in either of our two stays there. The rooms are medium to small, but they are nice and clean. We stayed in an upgraded room on our second stay there and had a nice flat screen tv in the room. The other room we had the first time had an older tv (but who goes to New Orleans to watch tv)?

I recommend this hotel for business travel or a couples trip. With the size of the room (and what's going on in New Orleans) I don't think I would be good for children.

Room Tip: Get a room that has been updated recently with a flat screen tv.

Fantastic hotel - great service and in a fantastic location. This hotel is very close to the French Quarter, among various shopping stores/mall. I stayed on the 19th FL - would recommend this to everyone as it offers a 'special lounge' that's always stocked with treats, drinks, etc. I would definitely stay here again!

Our 3 night stay was wonderful. The room was not large, but we didn't spend much time there. The pool area was adequate, and was the fittness room. We had breakfast at Mila's and it was very good. The clerks, doormen, and other employees were so friendly and helpful. Remember, this is a very old building that has been renovated many times. We found it to be very enjoyable. Within walking distance to the French Quarter and streetcar stops.
