“Easy in the Big Easy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

A bit skeptical at first, but upon arriving we knew this was going to be a good stay. The staff at check in was awesome. Although check-in is 4 pm, we were allowed to check-in around noon into our two bedroom condo. The hotel is very unique in decor and styling. The rooms were clean and cozy and more home like than hotel. The master bed was large enough for 3 people to sleep comfortably. The location is in the French Quarter and less than 1 mile walking distance to Harrah's Casino, Bourbon Street, the Aquarium, River Walk, the trolley line, a plethora of restaurants and Canal Street shopping. We parked directly in front of the hotel for our entire stay and did not have to drive anywhere since every thing was so close. The staff, Will, Charmane and Anthony took good care of us and even made sure the parking meter had coins put in up to 6pm. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again and recommend to all my friends and family to check it out if in New Orleans.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the balcony attached.

This hotel is a piece of cool paradise in the middle of swampy New Orleans. The room was decorated in funky art and was very clean. The bed & pillows were the most comfortable I've ever had in a hotel. I seriously wanted to slip a pillow into my suitcase. (If you're reading this Club la Pension, don't worry, I didn't!) The room was nice & cool & included a ceiling fan. The weather was so humid that the room because a nice oasis to get out of the heat. The rooftop area is cool at night. I would've liked to have had a pool or hot tub on premises, but it was really a great hotel.

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!
