Hotel is extremely old, but nicely updated. We had a huge room with two queen beds and very high ceilings.
Location is about 5 blocks off Bourbon Street so it is quiet and the walk isn't too far to get to "the street". About 20-25 minutes from the airport, but it is nice that New Orleans has instituted a law that a taxi ride from the airport to downtown, e.g. French Quarter, Warehouse District, etc is standardized at 33 dollars for one or two people. No chance of being "taken for a ride" by an unscrupulous cabbie. And the bus line for going downtown, the Garden District, Casino is only a block away.
In no particular order:
Check in, was fine. Ken was especially helpful. A nice young man.
Breakfast: Less than ordinary...same thing everyday and not many choices to boot. Menu; grits, cold cereal, bread or bagels, scrambled eggs and sausage patties, two kinds of honey, milk, and orange juice. Some/any type of variation would have been very welcome.
Pool, plunge pool may 15 feet by 8 feet. Glad no more than two guests ever wanted to use it.
Room, already spoke to it, but noticed that upkeep was definitely needed. Bathroom floor tiles were loose. They must have done some work in the bathroom because the floor by the toilet were covered with sheetrock debris and dust. Bed was comfortable. WiFi worked as advertised. Large armoire for clothing. There were large windows for plenty of light and they had heavy drapes to block out the heat.
Plusses..the staff. They were wonderful and attempted to be helpful even when they couldn't as it was out of their purview. Ken, Murphy, and the young ladies all were great.
Minuses...the room AC. It was non-existent for the first two nights. The maintenance guy attempted to help, but told me that this had been a problem for months and hotel had not done anything to fix it. Was offered relief in the terms of a different room, but it was very super small and dark with tiny, tiny windows. Asked for a fan, but none was forthcoming and then all of a sudden the AC kicked on and the room almost became too cold for the next nights. Very odd.
Would I stay again? Tough choice, perhaps but it probably is just a 50/50 proposition.

- 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.
