“Wonderful Boutique Hotel in the French Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We recently stayed at the Hotel Mazarin for JazzFest which coincided with my husbands birthday. We had a large king size room which considering the great location was quiet and convenient. The staff is very customer service oriented and helpful at all times. The breakfast was a perfect way to start the day and Patricks Bar Vin a perfect end to a long day of music and sightseeing.

I would definitely stay here again.

The Hotel is 1/2 block off Bourbon St and an oasis in the midst of the chaos of Bourbon St. Lovely, updated, yet full of Old World charm. Two inner courtyards and attached Bar. Rooms are clean with high-end toiletries. We got tied up in the airline sequester issues and missed our flight. Kudos to the 04/18/13 night desk clerk that cancelled our reservation when we called from Dallas at 11:30pm. Great place with excellent customer service! Breakfast was top quality and included in price of room.

We really enjoyed this hotel. Friendly staff, perfect location, it has a lot of charm. The rooms were great. I would suggest curtains over the wooden blinds to block the morning sun however. We would definitely stay here again and probably will.

Good location, near but not on, Bourbon Street. The rooms face a quiet courtyard, so street noise is not an issue. Unfortunately the designers seem not to have focused on the noise issue when they installed brick corridors leading to all of the rooms, so everyone hears the click and clack of suitcases , baggage carts and housekeeper utility carts whenever they move about. On the other hand, the room itself was spacious, nicely appointed and clean, and the hotel includes a nice hot and cold buffet breakfast. I would go again, (but will probably bring earplugs).

Location--between Royal and Bourbon Street. Fabulous location. We walked everywhere without a problem at all.

Great breakfast--loved it! Try the chocolate eclairs...they are fabulous! The eggs are great (not the typical breakfast buffet eggs).

Great staff--friendly, nice, helpful. Enough said.

Just stay here....you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: They have balcony room but you can't sit on them so it is kind of pointless.

What a lovely place to stay! Clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated rooms! Helpful, personable staff.....Manny was cordial and accomodating. Breakfasts were fresh with nice variety and were served in a lovely manner. The Courtyard was inviting. The Mazarin is well located .... just far enough away from the noise of Bourbon Street but close in walking distance to everything. Would definitely return........Excellent hotel ... outstanding staff!

The hedonist hits New Orleans.

I pride myself in my decadence. Then I came to New Orleans and realized the level of my naïveté.

But we're here to talk about the hotel Mazarin. OK... Bad news first. No bathtub and the pillows are not comfortable. That's all the bad news. Since the shower is huge and I always bring my own pillow, my life was pretty sweet at the Mazarin. Oh yeh, they have you sign a piece of paper that says you'll pay $250 if they catch you smoking in the property. A bit off-putting, but manageable. Concierge? Restaurant? Room service? No to all, but I didn't miss it. (For a change.) Rooms are very nice and quite large. Breakfast is plentiful and good. (It must be a good place if one reviewer had to criticize the breakfast bacon temperature in order to find something bad to say.) There's a nice bar attached to the property for a pre-dinner glass of wine, or post party cocktail. Almost forgot. Each lamp in the room has two electrical outlets at its base. Majorly convenient. Free wifi, too.

The high point of this hotel is the staff. Helpful, courteous friendly, efficient... I can't say enough to compliment them all. I was somewhat disappointed not to see a concierge, but all I had to do was to ask a person behind the desk and he made up for the lack of a concierge title.

The hotel is a half block away from Bourbon street - a perfect location if you happen to be interested in the college guys wet-dream-Disneyland. I wasn't. One walk down the street is about all I could take. Fried food and strip clubs are not my cup of tea. I can't imagine being a woman and walking through Bourbon street seeing the other almost dressed women offering themselves like so much meat on the rack. A major disappointment.

However! You'll find - in walking distance - some of the finest antique stores and art galleries in the world. If you have an extra million or so to spend, you'll have the opportunity to do so without feeling ripped off. 17th century animatronic clock? Amazing jewelry? $800,000 Chagall? Picasso? Erté? Miró? 3000 kinds of hot sauce? Yours for the taking.

I hope you'll take the time to take a - pardon the expression - bus tour of the city to get an overview. New Orleans has an amazing history. Spanish, French, American, Caribbean, and other influences combine gracefully to create one of the most interesting and richly mixed cultures anywhere.

For music, take a cab to Frenchman Street. Amazing, small, appropriately seedy clubs with some of the best jazz you'll hear anywhere. Don't dress up. The other places for music are interesting, but touristy. Locals go the Frenchman street. (Locals also avoid Bourbon street like the plague.)

You'll want to try beignets. Once. They aren't that great, but it is a piece of the history. Chicory coffee is also something to try. Once.

Check restaurant ratings to find good food. We tried several of the top rated. Good enough food and service, but if you're a foodie, you'll mostly be disappointed. For foodies, try "Coquet" in the garden district. Menu changes daily and it's one of the great, creative small restaurants anywhere. Black olive praline and cashew puree in your salad? Andouille infused caramel painted under your duck breast? A bit pricey, but not unreasonable... foodies won't care. Every bite is an experience to be remembered. Put this little gem on your bucket list.
