Firstly St. Pierre's location is great: two streets behind the dirty Bourbon St and a short stroll to Frenchman where the GOOD live entertainment is.
Secondly, the pools are tiny (and a bit filthy - I got tangled in some girls plastic weave hair that she'd shed) but very necessary when visiting during stinking hot July. There's also two pools, a more private one in the back, if you don't feel like getting skimpy infront of the lobby.
Thirdly, the rooms are pokey and the aircon is LOUD - earplugs a MUST.
Fourthly, the complimentary breakfast is less than desirable, infact I think a toddler could make better scrambled eggs, and they'd probably use real eggs.
Fifthly, the parking is expensive with this hotel. Try your luck with some of the parking lots in the 'hood.
The front desk staff were surly, judgey, and unhelpful. You know what I mean, you walk through the doors and they look at you like they have no idea who you are (even though you've approached them hours earlier) and they seem super peeved that you've distracted them from their chit-chat. Every basic request just seemed like hard work for them.
When I asked about whether there was a fridge in my room, I was assured there was one... I turned that room upside down - there wasn't one.
- 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
