“Nice Hotel Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a nice stay. The hotel allows easy walking to any area of the French Quarter. Our room overlooked the street and was certainly not sound proof but we loved it. Required Valet Parking is $24 per day but easy in and out and you can retreive items from car without any problem. Breakfast was sufficient (bagels, toast, cereal) but opened at 8:00 which could be an issue depending on when you want to start your day. Staff was more than helpful.
We would certainly stay here again.

Perfect location for everything within walking distance. Staff was friendly and helpful. The complaints I have are that the hotel does not control the noise late at night( I understand this is New Orleans but all of us are not there to get as drunk as possible before passing out!) and the hotel bar prices are outrageous....walk down the street and buy cocktails or beer elsewhere.

The hotel is beautiful, staff are fantastic and the location in perfect. This place is right in the heart of the quarter and is walking distance to all kinds of fun. We were here for our first trip without the kids and this was the perfect choice!

Location was key for our trip. We like to spend time on Frenchman Street (and we avoid Bourbon and Canal), so Hotel Provincial was perfect. It is very close to the Ursaline's stop on the Riverfront Streetcar, so for those utilizing public transportation, this is a bonus.
Upon check-in we were upgraded from a double room to a beautiful room with a king size bed (the clerk said that a couple would not have been comfortable in the double that I had booked online). Hotel Provincial is in a historic building, so do not come expecting all modern amenities. However, it has a gorgeous courtyard and is really lovely for those who prefer character over modernity.
The Pros: location, price, friendly staff, comfortable atmosphere, nice bar
The Cons (but really not that bad): no elevators in some buildings, no heat in the pools, the furniture could use a little updating (lovely antique chairs, but not that comfy; nice king sized bed, but you can tell it's about time to replace it -- OK, and this might seem nit-picky, but I hate down comforters... I was too cold without it and too hot with it on), the hotel restaurant was also way out of our price range (luckily, the Verti Marte is only two blocks away... haha!).
And for my last criticism, the hotel is featured in many French Quarter tours as a "haunted" hotel... this, of course, convinced me that a resident ghost was shaking our bed at night. In reality, we were probably feeling vibrations from dumpsters being emptied or something like that. But it was pretty easy to get a little spooked there :)
I would definitely stay there again. And I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for clean, comfortable, affordable lodgings in the French Quarter.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 321, a beautiful two-floor suite with 1 & 1/2 baths. Quiet corner of the hotel...

Stayed the weekend before Halloween. Great place and a great location. We were put in building 5 next to the elevator, but that was not an issue. Even with just a view of the central parking lot, it still was not loud and not the worst view. The room was clean and comfortable, if not overly decorated. The location is great for walking around the french quarter, and yet you are staying in a quieter part of he fq. The pool looks inviting for warmer months. Did not eat there this time, but next time want to try Stella, the restaurant right in front. For some late night muffaletta, try the Quarter Master deli, just a few blocks away on the quiet end of Bourbon.

Lovely little hotel in the heart of the French Quarter. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast was included and coffee was available almost 24 hours. The room was plenty large and the beds very comfortable. The down side was no in-room safe and no refridgerator. They do have a small pool which we didn't use due to the weather. Easy walking to everything...We walked all over the French Quarter and then down to Canal Street to take the bus (the trolleys weren't running) to the Garden District.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room in the area surrounding the pool, rather than the rooms in the back off the...

My wife and I spent one night in New Orleans at this hotel. We were in a 500 level room that overlooked the parking area. Not a great view, but we didn't plan to spend much time in the room or looking out the window. The bathroom was updated with marble tile and granite counter tops. The room had a queen sized bed that was nothing special. The price was a little less than most of the hotels in the immediate area. The location was excellent and in a safe area - a short walk to Bourbon Street and Jackson Square. The continental breakfast was very good - coffee, pastries, cereals, bagels and oj. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
