“Perfect hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This location was in walking distance to Harrah's Casino, Bourbon Street, the Aquarium, River Walk, Jax Brewery and Canal Street shopping. This quaint hotel was just perfect for my family. We rented two rooms. The towels were changed daily as well as the trash taken out. One of the rooms we rented had a balcony and really made us feel like we were in NOLA...the activity on Decatur Street made the room a little noisy at night but then again it added to the charm and night life of New Orleans. The entire staff was wonderful. Valet parking was quick for us as well. Will definitely go back!

My fiance and I spent a three night stay at La Pension for our first trip to New Orleans. We absolutely fell in love with the city and this hotel pleasantly exceeded our expectations. It is located at the edge of the French Quarter so we were in walking distance to everything not only in the Quarter, but also to the museums, Harrah's casino and Mother's nearby.

The decor in the lobby is quaint boutique style and very clean. We arrived in the morning so the front desk workers helped arrange an early check-in. Before the room was ready, they let us leave our bags with them so we could begin exploring luggage-free. They will call you when your room is ready so you don't have to keep checking in. However, we were desperate for a quick freshen-up so we took a shot and circled back to the hotel a few hours later. Luckily, our room was just about ready. The room was a two level, one bedroom (room 406) that we entered via roof access. It was extremely clean and perfectly arranged when we arrived. It had a kitchen, living room area, two TVs, two bathrooms (one half bath, one full) and a queen sized bed.

Along with the confusion of other guests, we did not quite understand the maid service. They will not change your towels if you hang them up to dry as part of a Green initiative (which I've seen in other hotels), but I believe they did come in to take the towels on the floor. What was confusing was that they did not make the bed at all. However, this didn't bother us too much since our stay was short. My only minor complaint would be that you cannot turn on the shower from the side so you are forced to hit freezing cold water for a second in order to start it up. But since it was 90+ degrees and insane humidity outside, this also was not a huge deal.

We did not have any issues with noise. On Decatur St. you are far enough away from Bourbon to enjoy a good night's rest, but not too far that you wouldn't be able to walk home easily if you did decide to stay out late.

The hotel is actually a timeshare, so they will ask you to sit through the two hour presentation for some sort of compensation. They offered us a $150 visa gift card to go to the presentation, but our stay was so short that we didn't want to spare the two hours when we knew we had no interest in purchasing anything. If you politely decline, they will not bother you about it.

Overall the hotel was great and I would highly recommend it! We would stay there again.

My hubby and I were approached in the mall for buy 3 nights for $100 with a $75 gift card being given to us after checking in. Couldn't pass up this deal!! New Orleans as always was a great mini honeymoon. The room had weird art (chair upside-down on the ceiling) in the living room, tv's were small for our likings but heck we only used it to check the weather, glass shower for 2 was wonderful! Bed was small queen size considering my hubby is well over 6ft. The balcony was scary and looked unstable and if you don't lock it back anyone on either side can access your room. Fridge and microwave was clean and nice closet space. Walking distance to all your needs. Staff was extremely helpful and nice!

We enjoyed our 2 bedroom unit. We had a large balcony that was the length of both bedrooms. We also had a bath and half in our unit. The staff is very attentive and makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. Laundry was a little tight but I was happy I didn't bring any dirty clothes home. The bellman and other support staff also couldn't have been nicer. I would stay again on a future visit without question.

Room Tip: If a large balcony is important choose Decatur St rooms. Street noise on the weekends but we enjoyed...

We stayed here for our 32nd anniversary trip to New Orleans. We arrived early before check in and our room was ready. Everyone was helpful! Room was clean and hotel essentials were provided. Location is great, far enough away from Bourbon Street, but also close enough to the action. Great area to explore, take one of the hop off and hop on tours. Need to make a stop at Café Du Mondo, the place where they made the original MUFFALETTAS, and check out Antonies where they give you a tour (If you just ask). Pat O'Brien's has the best bread pudding and hurricaines. We took a short trip of 4 days and saw and did most things we wanted to do. Rained quite a bit, so don't forget your umbrella!

The location of this resort which is really a hotel not a resort is the best....just on the edge of the french quarter and walkable to loads of activities on Canal Street.
It is a tad quirky .. Our room had a chair hanging upside down !!??... I would have preferred a chair and table to sit and eat my breakfast at....we had room 603.
Outside of that comfortable stay.

Stayed on 3rd floor. The room was a 1 bedroom suite with a large living area and pull out sofa bed. Had a compact kitchen and nice large walk-in shower in bathroom. Other reviewers had commented on not having bath essentials, even towels in rooms, so we packed our own. The room had everything we needed so it was unnecessary to pack the extra items, but better safe than sorry. Location, location, location! If you want a downtown experience this fits the bill. Walking distance to everything. The noise level can be loud in the hall as I slept on the sofa bed. I brought earplugs based on other reviewers comments and slept well using them. You could also tuck a towel at the bottom of the door leading to the hall and that helps. You are in New Orleans so you have to expect noise. There is a very nice balcony on the 4th floor with a couple of bean bag games, table and chairs and a view of the street when you look over the brick wall. Because it is downtown and the streets are narrow they have valet parking only. The cost is $35.00. Be sure to add this into your stay. We were able to check out in the morning and pick our vehicle up later that afternoon without any additional charge. There is no swimming pool or restaurant on premises. Restaurants are however within a block walking distance.

Room Tip: t any additional charge.
