“a treasure in the quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

We always stay at the Hotel Provincial when travelling to New Orleans. Love the area, away from the sordid noise of bourbon street but still close enough to gaze at it briefly, like some car wreck! I love to walk everywhere from there, including the fabulous places along lower Decatuer and Faibough Maringy. I have only stayed on rooms on the top floor and have always had a nice,quiet stay. I loved the helpful front desk staff and bellmen and the rooms are quaint new orleans style. Right around the corner from the fabulous new orleans standby, Irenes. We felt safe at night walking to and fro ( but it is new orleans so dont be an idiot about it) The hotel next door, forget the name, is nice to if this one is filled up (that's not helpful is it? he he) Its not posh or modern but it has a sexy, languid sort of old time feel to the place, better then some corporate chain anyday. Go enjoy the quarter away from bourbon, its awesome!

My friends and I saved up and got one of the petite suites for a friend's birthday weekend, and I have to say, it was money well spent. This location was fantastic--still in the French Quarter but enough away from the hustle and bustle that it was quiet at night. We chose this hotel based on its haunted reputation and were quite pleased to have a couple of unexplained circumstances over the weekend--one within fifteen minutes of arrival. Absolutely beautiful hotel and courtyard, the room itself was spectacular, and the staff were phenomenally helpful and kind. Though we mainly spent our time out and about in the French Quarter, the time we did spend at the Provincial was fantastic. Highly, highly recommended, despite the steep price. Totally worth saving up for.

We stayed at the Provincial for 3 nights. It is in a good location - nice and quite but close enough to all the hot spots. The room we were in (500 block) was at the back of the hotel and was very noisy as it was next to the lift and some large air con vents on the ground floor which kept us up, other guest were very noisy and woke us up several times during our stay. The room was large enough, bathroom small and the room was stuffy and hard to breath.

We only had breakfast one morning and it was average but would do for some, we left early the day we checked out and would not allow us to take a muffin or bagel on the way as it was before 8am, which I thought was a little rude.

The courtyards are lovely if you are staying near them and not at the back end of the parking lot.

The staff were fine but not as friendly or as helpful as I have experienced in other hotels.

I would reccomend this hotel to others but if we returned we would try somewhere different.

Wonderful location in the French Quarter in a hotel with high standards. Very helpful staff, offered their very good advice on restaurants and places to go.

Room Tip: Try to get one away from the driveway

First room was a ground level handicapped accessible bathroom facing a brick wall- felt dark and creepy so we went back to the front desk and asked for another. Were given 211 overlooking the pool on the 2nd floor. It was much more comfortable and brighter. No issues, not blown away by anything or anyone. Location was alright, but I prefer to be closer to the sights.

My family and I have been staying at the Hotel Provincial for 10+ years, and it is usually the only place we will stay. The staff remembers us every time we visit, and does everything imaginable to make every stay unforgettable. I returned to the Provincial with my husband years after a trip with my family, and it was still as wonderful as I had left it. The beauty of the courtyard, charm of the brick paths and bubbling fountains, and glow of the gas lamps will transport you back in time while still providing modern day luxuries.
