So welcoming and friendly.
When we arrived they treated us with such respect and took the time to answer all our numerous questions on where to dine, what to see, etc. That was just the reception staff and the doormen. When you stay here, be sure to say hello to one of the young ladies at reception by the name of Sid. She cheerfully went out of her way to see we had exactly what we needed. The staff in the restaurant were also amazing.
Steven was our server for dinner on our first night stay, and he gave us history on the food, the community, and also answered our questions with humor and joy.
The ambiance of the lobby and the small lounge off of it is welcoming, not to mention stunningly beautiful.
Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. It included a secure safe for passports etc.The large bathroom had shower and tub, and the bed and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud. From the 15th floor, our view was old weathered rooftops but considering we didn't spend much time in the room - it didn't matter.
I was not able to connect to free wifi in the room, but could do so in the lobby which suited me fine.
Temperature control for the room was ours to set - we really liked that as the temperature fluctuated during our stay from cool and rainy to hot and sunny.
Hubby and I fell in love with New Orleans and the experience of the French Quarter Festival. We are preparing to attend again next year and we will book accommodations at the Renaissance Pere Marquette, as it is so close you can do a ton of things either walking or with the bike taxi.
