“Essence Music Festival during the 4th of July weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We stayed at the Renaissance Pere Marquette during the 4th of July weekend to attend the Essence Music Festival, this hotel is VERY NICE!!! Everything was modern, clean and walking distance from French Quarters. I would highly recommend this place I guess the only qualm would be that the rooms were small BUT there were four of us sharing one room.....LOL!!! All in all we had a great time in NOLA!!!!

Dear GCoop74,

Thanks for sharing your experience with us! Essence 2014 was an amazing time to be in New Orleans and we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed it with us. We couldn't agree more about our perfect location right by Bourbon Street, Harrah's Casino, the French Quarter and the Arts & Warehouse District. We hope to see you for Essence 2015!

Stayed 4 days at the Pere Marquett last week. The room was clean but small, shower no tub wireless was pay as you go and parking was $38/night. The views are buildings. No restaurant for dining and a very limited grill menu at the bar. Not what I would have expected for their rating

Room Tip: The Ritz is only a block away and would be a better choice

Dear Jamesuemcd, thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent visit in New Orleans. Your feedback is always valued and helps shape future decisions about the product and services our hotel offers. We always strive to fulfill customer expectations and provide an excellent hotel experience. We're glad to hear you were pleased with the cleanliness of your room and although there are limited views from our hotel due to neighboring buildings, our location is noted as one of the best being just steps away from the French Quarter yet just outside the revelry of Bourbon Street for those seeking a retreat from the non-stop party. Our hotel does have a variety of rooms that have shower/tub combinations or just standup showers for those that like a more streamlined look. For our guests who thrive on "staying connected" during their visits we do always offer free wireless internet access in our lobby area as well as complimentary lobby internet terminals for those who do not wish to pack a laptop or tablet to bring with them. It sounds like you may have missed the opportunity to enjoy MiLa restaurant (located on the hotel lobby level) while you were here. MiLa has been rated a top ten restaurant in New Orleans and is open daily for breakfast, Tuesday- Friday for lunch, and Tuesday-Saturday for dinner. We hope we have the opportunity to be your host again for next visit to New Orleans- we're always make every effort to accommodate requests for particular room attributes (tubs, city view) whenever available so that we can provide a stay exceeds the "OK" and is worthy of being "Great".

Took a short girls trip for memorial day weekend, and this hotel was great. It was one of the few still offering a military discount during the holiday weekend which was a big plus. The location is great, very close to the french quarter, so everything we wanted was within walking distance. Well not everything, we did venture a bit farther out to places such as Treme for food, but the hotel staff help you quickly flag down a cab.

I stayed in May, and the construction was still happening, so it was a great tip to ask to be on the opposite side of the building. The room was very pretty , interesting decorations, with a large shower which was great.

The pool was very small but still spent a bit of time relaxing. Its surrounded by tall building on each side so the best time for sun would be in the mornings.

Hotel staff was friendly, I would absolutely stay here again!

It's also nice to hear that you discovered intriguing local areas like the Treme. It would be our pleasure to host you on your next journey to the Big Easy.

Enjoyed our stay for an arts festival in NOLA. Incoming service (valet parking and front desk) was quick, efficient, and courteous. Parking is approximately $42/day including tax, but necessary with lack of parking in NOLA. Room was clean and pleasant, though nothing special. Location is convenient, a few blocks from Canal St., Warehouse District (where we were going). Had breakfast at Mila's, the hotel restaurant, which was included with our room. This is where it got mediocre. Service was OK, but buffet VERY basic--- eggs, sausage, hot and cold cereals, breakfast breads, melon, and pineapple. My daughter ordered off the menu, and had a brioche French toast with berries, which she said was good. Would stay here again.

My wife and I decided to take a "local" vacation this year (we live in the FL Panhandle, so it is an easy trip) and stayed here toward the end of July 2014. The hotel was wonderful. The staff was more than helpful and super friendly. We arrived "early" (and despite it being before check-in time they had our room ready to go and let us go ahead and go to our room I've stayed at other places in town where this wasn't the case so I was grateful for this)... she even informed us of the noise level going on due to the building being renovated across the street and gave us the option of staying in our "assigned room" or taking a smaller room that wasn't by noise. Upon asking about the best places to eat in town the girl at the front desk provided us with a list and gave her personal recommendation too. The location is great, with a streetcar and bus stop right out front which can take you to the WWII Museum (a great tour if you haven't been there) and is a block away from the sights and sounds on bourbon st. The only complaint I'd have is how the room was set up. Bed facing one way and the TV on sidewall. Could make for a stiff neck but if you're watching TV in NOLA, you're doing something wrong!

Room Tip: If the construction is still going on, get a room away from that noise! We could hear it and weren...

My wife, a friend, and I traveled to New Orleans this past weekend for my 30th birthday. We booked this hotel with Amex points. The hotel is in an excellent location, less than a 5 minute walk to Bourbon St. The lobby has a trendy feel with neon lighting and an interesting lounge space. The room we had was quite small. We had a king room with a roll away and there was very little space left in the room. The air in the room was very humid but that may have had to do with the weather. The room wasn't something you would want to spend much time in. They do offer very nice Aveda products in the bathrooms. The front desk staff was very accommodating and gave us a room on the opposite side of the building from the construction. We didn't hear anything. Overall there was nothing too bad about the hotel but nothing overly impressive. Average.

Dear Adam W, thank you for sharing your comments of your recent stay with us for your 30th birthday. We are thrilled you chose to stay with us for this special occasion and happy you highlighted our great location just outside of the French Quarter as well as our friendly staff members and Aveda bath products in our guestrooms. We hope you had the chance to celebrate your milestone birthday with a few of our special cocktail creations in Bar UnCommon since you commented you enjoyed the trendy environment of our lounge area. While New Orleans is certainly a hot and steamy city in the summertime it is uncharacteristic for our guestrooms to feel humid; we apologize if the climate in your room adversely impacted your visit. We will examine the air conditioning system in the room you occupied to ensure it is operating correctly. We're always glad to provide a rollaway bed free of charge for our customers who bring along extra friends- here's a tip- that extra twin bed can certainly take up a lot of the floor space in a guestroom but it is designed to stand vertically when not in use which affords some extra space in the room when not sleeping. We hope to see you again for your next visit to New Orleans and look forward to the opportunity to share your 40th birthday celebration with you and make it an exceptional memory!
