We had stayed at the St. Pierre last Nov, and had a wonderful experience, which was our reason for booking there again, for a stay of four days. We were told when we arrived that the hotel had sold to a different corporation about a month after our previous stay. Now, you couldn't ask for a better location, the prices are right, and the staff is all it should be. Parking (when available), we learned, is no longer included; the hotel offers only valet service at $30.00 per day; we parked at a Central Parking location not far away for less than that (by the way, always go to neworleans.centralparking.com for printable discount coupons.) Our room was cramped but bearable until the air conditioner decided to conk out; the deskman very nicely moved us to another room, rather palatial by comparison. On the previous stay, there was coffee available in the breakfast room at all times; it is now open only from 7:00 to 10:00 AM; it may, however, be available at the front desk. (I'm waiting for Community Coffee to be ruled a controlled substance; I sure find it addictive!) All in all, it just wasn't as enjoyable an experience as the previous visit. I can still recommend the St Pierre, but with some reservation. If you go, remember it's a very old building, with guest rooms that are mostly carved out of what were once service rooms for the main house; don't expect a luxury spa experience. It's worthwhile to spend the money for a good-sized double room. My last quibble; what is the purpose of a headboard that is attached neither to the bed nor to the wall? In both rooms, they were simply jammed in between the wall and the bed frame, thus bumping against the bricks every time you moved the pillow. Curious.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On the National Register of Historic Places, the Hotel St. Pierre, with its authentic French Colonial cottages dating back to the 1700's, embodies the architecture, romance, and ambiance of a bygone era. Contributing greatly to the hotel's charm is the relaxed atmosphere of this quiet residential section of the French Quarter. One would never guess its proximity to world class dining, culture, and the lively nightlife of Bourbon Street. Secluded lush tropical courtyards, balconies, pools, and fountains help make this the perfect spot for a family vacation, romantic escape, or storybook wedding, as well as for incentive trips, reunions, and family vacations. Valet parking available for $32.95 plus tax per vehicle per night. ... more less
