We wanted to stay in the French quarter for under $200 per night without a reservation on President's Weekend, and this was the only place I could find. It turned out to be a great find. I would recommend this hotel to any budget traveler who wants to visit the French quarter.
The room is very basic--no microwave, fridge, hairdryer, or even a clock. But it's very roomy, cozy, clean, comfortable and located in a beautiful historic building. It's a short 10-minute walk to anything you might want to see in the French quarter, but two blocks away from where all the noise comes from. So at the end of the night, you can go back to your room and get a good night's sleep. Both nights we were there, we did hear some of our neighbors come in late (and drunk), but the noise didnt last too long and I think that's the best you can hope for if you want to stay in the French quarter.
The hotel has free parking, but it's very limited. Our first night, we parked on St. Louis in a lot for $25 per day, but the next day we found a spot. They have a security guard watching the lot who lets people in and out, so that was nice.
The hotel has free breakfast and a jacuzzi as well, but I did not partake in either, so I can't comment on them. There is a small grocery store next door that is convenient if you forget anything. I bought a jug of bottled water there.
Overall, just the right place to stay in the french quarter, in my opinion. And if you do visit the french quarter, I highly recommend you stay there, rather than drive or take a taxi from elsewhere. It was much more enjoyable that way.

- 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.

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.
