My husband and I along with a group of friends stayed at the Inn on St. Peter for the Red Dress Run held at Louis Armstrong Park. The hotel is ideal if your attending an event at the park since it is only two blocks away from the park. Hotel is at the corner of St. Peter and Burgundy. It is also only three blocks from Bourbon Street. The hotel was built in 1805 so it is a landmark building.
We stayed in a room with a queen size bed on the second level above the courtyard facing St. Peter Street. The rooms have been updated but with that being said they are still on the small side. This was not a deal breaker for us since we were only in our room to sleep and get dressed. Room highlights included hardwood floors, a very comfy bed and a keurig coffee maker. Our room had the traditional french doors with large windows found in NOLA and there were two sets. Quite a bit of light came through them and my husband had a hard time sleeping. You also hear quite a bit of street noise. For example: sirens from an ambulance, people revving their motorcycles (jerks), and then just people in general. This was at no fault of the hotel but was unfortunately a deal breaker for us in staying there in the future. Between too much light in the room and the noise we just had too hard of a time sleeping. If you are a light sleeper then this is not the hotel for you. If you can sleep through anything then I highly recommend this hotel.
*Tip* One of our friends stayed in a King size room on the Burgundy street level side. She said it was very dark and very quiet. The room was internal and did not have any windows. If this room is available and your a light sleeper...then book it!
The hotel staff was EXTREMELY friendly and willing to help with any questions we had. The friendliness of the staff and the location of the hotel is why I rated the property with an overall "very good" rating.
The hotel does not have on-site parking and we parked a secured site about six blocks away. The total for two nights was $45.
*Tip* Six blocks is not far but isn't close enough to keep running back and forth too. Make sure to get everything out you may need. We parked in front of the hotel and unloaded the car before parking it.
Please feel free to email me with any questions that you may have.
