“Quaint and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2008

I chose this hotel because of its location in the French Quarter. It was easy to drop in and leave purchases during the day. The rooms each have a name of a Jazz great on the door, and because of the many cottages, I was afraid that we would forget where our room was! When we checked in, our first room had a leak in the ceiling that got the bed wet. We were promptly moved into another room. Now, the bathroom wasn't the poshest, grout needed cleaning and the water pressure was low, but it was clean overall. The bed's mattress was nice and firm, the a/c was super, and at night we couldn't hear any sounds, so we slept undisturbed.
The staff was extremely helpful giving us directions to restaurants, at trying to get us checked in for our flight, and waking us for our early morning departure. Despite the humidity, the whole hotel smelled fresh and pleasant. I would gladly stay here again.

  • Liked — Quiet atmosphere and strong A/C

We love the location and enjoyed the renovated cottages. Our second stay at the Hotel St. Pierre. Besides the location the big plus is the pool and courtyard. Nice! We had a good size room and our friends had a smaller room. Request a couryard or balcony room if they have it. Internet access/wireless is only in lobby area. We both recommend this French Quarter gem!

We had viewed the hotel's web site and pretty much knew what to expect. We wanted a change from the large chain hotels. This hotel was quaint, charming and historic. We checked in July 3 and was there during the Essence Festival.

The staff works hard to please you and the location was great for navigating the Quarter on foot. Ask Coral at the front desk to recommend anything you need, restaurants, tours, etc.

Both of the pools are small but clean, inviting and set in nice court yard with greenery. Parking was tight, but free. Our room (101) had 2 queen beds, exposed brick and wood dating back to the beginning of time, but the bathroom was newly remodeled and had all the amenities one might need.

The grocery store across the street primarily caters to the local residents in the area because the hotel is in a residential area. The grocery store had a small kitchen and sells shrimp, fish and chicken dinners, red beans and rice and other local fare. Not bad, not great but convenient when we were starving and didn't have a reservation or needed something to eat right away.

Two blocks up was Bourbon Street, and on the corner of Bourbon and Dumaine was The Clover Grill, a very colorful place that served AWESOME breakfasts and burgers.

If you are into plush luxurious hotels, this is not your place. But if you like getting in touch with the locals and what it feels like to live in the Quarter you will appreciate the charm and attraction of the St. Pierre.

Recently returned from a 4-day stay in New Orleans, where my family spent several days working a Habitat for Humanity homebuilding project. The St Pierre seemed like an interesting hotel, based on their website. We found out it was interesting, historical, quirky, odd and lovable during our stay!

Let's get a few of the bad things out of the way first:
-TERRIBLE continental breakfast! Doughnuts, biscuits from a box, lukewarm orange juice, and no fruit, cereal, yogurt or hot foods! Only saving grace was some pretty decent coffee.
-Very limited free parking that's a true adventure of parallel parking skills and dodging the mirrors of other cars a half-inch from yours. The free parking aspect is terrific, the obstacle course,...not so much.
-Perhaps the tiniest swimming pool I've ever seen. I was afraid to jump in for fear of hitting my head on the OTHER SIDE! Until you see this pool, you'll think I'm exxagerating. When you see it, you'll know I'm not!

With that said, we thoroughly enjoyed this little gem. Here are some of the reasons why:
-Our room (155) was HUGE!! King bed, 2 sleeper sofas, mini-frig and microwave, and 2 tv's.
-Never heard noise from another room or from outside the hotel, and we were there during a busy stretch leading up to July 4th.
-Rooms feature high ceilings, exposed wooden beams and exposed brick walls. Lots of character and uniqueness that is befitting of a city like New Orleans.
-2 blocks from Bourbon Street and about 5 blocks from Cafe Du Monde and the waterfront. I'm not a fan of Bourbon Street at all, as I think it shows a really dark and sad side of our society, but if that's your gig, you're practically next door.
-Free internet in lobby and in all rooms!
-Very friendly staff who enjoy giving restaurant recommendations, chatting you up and just being friendly representatives of their beloved city. On our last evening, the lady at the front desk referred us to K-Paul's restaurant, which wound up being one of the top five meals that my wife and I have ever had.
-Hotel is an architectural blast from the past. Interesting twists and turns, lots of interconnected buildings with little courtyards and mini-gardens.
-Prices were reasonable for the area @ around $150 per night on weeknights.

If you want one of the pampering hotels like Hyatt's and Westin's, then this place will be a little too "roughing it" for you. But as much as I love those hotels, this one seemed to be just right for a city full of contradictions. New versus old. Recovering versus still devastated. Churches next door to voodoo shops and transvestite bars. Whatever you want to say about New Orleans, it a'int boring!

  • Disliked — terrible breakfast!

First time staying here and loved the location and our room! The hotel is a couple of blocks from Bourbon Street (walked to Bourbon every night and felt very safe walking to and from). Hotel is on a quiet street and perfect for a stroll to busy Bourbon Street- takes 5 minutes or less. The streets are narrow and the blocks are short. Going towards Bourbon Street, just a block or two is a small diner on the corner with a good breakfast (under $17 for 2 people) and they have good hamburgers too.
The most convenient part is the free parking. The lot is very small (just across the street), and it is first come, first serve. We were lucky to get a spot every night except one and we had to park several blocks away, but the walk wasn't bad and paid $3/day. Lot was fenced in with an all-night attendant. Parking is very expensive, stayed at another hotel the first night before changing over and the parking was $28/day! This hotel was worth the price in free parking.
Our room was small, but quaint. Nothing fancy, but enjoyed the change from all the common hotel rooms. It poured down raining one night and I enjoyed opening up the french doors to listen to the rain. Bathroom was large, had just been remodeled with tile, new cabinets, etc. Only thing to remember: NO HAIR DRYER. Make sure you bring one! All room doors are outside, but hotel perimeters are closed in and gated. At night have to go past front desk to go to your room when gate is locked. Everyone was very friendly definitely would stay there again.
One restaurant you have to go to is Drago's Restaurant (check out their website on the internet for menu) in the Hilton Hotel New Orleans Riverside on 2 Poydras Street. I'm not a fan of Hotel restaurants, but it is unbelieveably fantastic! The restaurant is huge, and obviously a hometown favorite because it is packed with people every night. Just on the backside of Harrah's casino near Bourbon Street. You get large portions of food and the desserts are awesome-the brownie dessert feeds 4 people. I don't like oysters on the half shell, but these were the best I have ever had. They put them on an open grill with butter and garlic and cook them and serve them with fresh bread - never had anything better.

  • Liked — Clean, near Bourbon Street, parking free
  • Disliked — Small Parking area

The hotel was charming and (for the most part) the staff were very friendly and accomodating.

We were there for 11 days and our maid knew us by name and was very conciderate about waiting for us to leave for the day before cleaning our room, to spite her busy schedule.

The price (at the time) was very reasonable for such a great location and the room was nice. It was on the small side, the window Air Conditioning unit was "ify" at best and the bathroom was not in the best of shape, but it was clean.

Having lived in New Orleans for several years, I knew what to expect. I can see how someone who was familiar with staying at generic homogonized chain hotels might be "put off" by the state of most of the older hotels and B&B's in New Orleans. Even the "nicer" ones seem to be in a slight state of decay.

But for those who can appreciate the charm of a historic and well worn building you won't be disapointed. If you are not THAT person...you might want to avoid New Orleans entirely.

We looked into staying there again recently and were a little shocked by how much the rates had gone up.

  • Liked — You Can Not Beat The Location!
  • Disliked — They could make some updates to the rooms and still retain the historic charm of the buildings.

We had an unfortunate situation in which we had something stolen from our room. In addition, our room was in a noisy location. I would not recommend this hotel.
