“First Trip to Nola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

8 of us traveled to New Orleans to spend St Patricks Day weekend. The hotel is in the perfect location close to Bourbon Street but far enough away to get some peace and quiet. We booked three rooms. One with a courtyard balcony, two with street balconies. The rooms are old (it's the French Quarter) but they are well maintained for the amount of traffice they receive. The hotel staff was friendly without being in your face. The not so nice reviews had me a little nervous in regards to the noise, cleanliness, friendliness, etc.! This is The French Quarter!!! If you want quiet and new than don't stay there. It is beautiful, fun, historic, and within walking distance of almost anything you want to do. We ate at both restaurants and used the parking facility. Yes, the doors are loud if you slam them - try shutting them easier!! I would stay again and I would recommend to anyone wanting to visit. Keep it up guys! We had a great time.

Room Tip: I strongly suggest a courtyard balcony. Rooms are quieter. Dauphine Street seemed to get a little...

After several weeks of research, we decided on the Hotel St. Marie for our lodging choice during our weekend stay in NOLA for our wedding. It was the best decision I could have made, next to the choice of groom! The hotel is just lovely - very beautifully decorated, the court yard is amazing, and the service is beyond incredible. The location was perfect, just right down from Bourbon Street - however the nights were still a bit noisy, but it was not bad! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of spending time in the Crescent City...we will definitely be going back!!

Room Tip: A room with a balcony is most certainly the way to go!

If your looking for a very good hotel in the middle of the French Quarter look no further. Far enough from the action that you can relax, or jump right on to Bourbon Street to party. I have stayed here multiple times and will continue to; love interior balcony rooms. The support staff is awesome and recognized us as soon as we got out of the car.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in March 2013, and found it incredibly charming, friendly, quiet and located close to everything in the French Quarter. The hotel provided internet access and gave us the password upon check-in. The staff was more than helpful and made our check-in problem free. They were more than helpful with any questions we had and always greeted us with a smile.

The room was clean, spacious and quiet and provided enough space for me and my two adult children. The furnishings were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was immaculate, with plenty of supplies. We did find housekeeping was a little lacking. We came back to our room one afternoon and looked as though they had been interrupted as only one bed was made and no new towels had been placed in the bathroom. Easily solved by finding a cart and helping ourselves to towels. We had a room with a balcony that looked out over the courtyard with its pool and fountain and enjoyed that a lot. We did joke about the slow elevator, but to be expected in a rather old building.

The coffee shop in the lobby floor was a blessing and the help was always cheerful and happy. The breakfast sandwiches were good, fresh and the coffee was plenty. They offered a variety of fruit, salads and drinks which was much appreciated by everyone in my party.

I have stayed in the French Quarter before, but when I return, I will return to the Hotel St. Marie. It is by far my favorite hotel in New Orleans and will not stay anywhere else when I return.

Shared a room with friends on a getaway weekend. The hotel has a nice location, but seems to be a bit on the dirty side. Needs a deep clean and a few changes. Large rooms for the quarter, but our issue came with the bathroom. It's not a solid door. Slated. Far from ideal for sharing with friends....

Staff was nice.

Room Tip: Check that the bathroom door is a real door.....

Just have a word for this rude 'thealee' that stayed march 7,2013!!!! Surely you have an agenda an it's to tear down one of the best hotels in the French quarter. U were probably the type of guest trying to get a free stay cause u r way off ur rocker. Don't listen to this moron. HOTEL ST.MARIE rocks and that's why they have been very successful despite negative reviews from pricks!! Stay at the Ritz if u want the best service around but the prob is u r to cheap to stay there&u want something for nothing! If u don't like it don't come back b/c there r way more positive reviews then ur negative stupid comments!! Great hotel,location,staff,etc!!

Visited and reviewed Hotel St. Marie in 2011. At that time we had two rooms, street-side and shared a large balcony with a table and chairs. The extra outside space made a lot of difference and I gave the hotel a good review

This visit we had a balcony room facing the courtyard. The courtyard is small and filled with dining tables for the hotel restaurant. The balcony was tiny and had no room for even one chair. When we first got off the elevator the first thing we noticed was a set of curtains that had been half ripped down, either by a guest or due to renovations. They remained in that condition during our entire stay. It would have taken housekeeping about 5-10 minutes to rehang them. To me, it just showed that they just didn't care. When we entered our room (#203) we were greeted by the smell of dirty feet. I sprayed my trusty Febreeze and opened the balcony door, but we were unable to rid the room of the funky smell during our visit. The carpet was very worn and I did not feel comfortable walking barefoot on it, thank goodness I had my flip-flops.One of the lamps and a leg on the nightstand was broken. The beds were comfortable, but be warned they do not provide a thick blanket or comforter and if you like to sleep in a cool room you should bring your own blanket. The vanity counter had a huge rust stain on it and there were several long black hairs in the tub upon our arrival. Yuck. The peeling wallpaper did not add to the bathroom's charm.

Yes, the location is awesome. The restaurant and coffee shop are great, service and food is awesome. The front desk is efficient and friendly with the exception of one gentleman who is strictly business. The bellmen and valets are hard-working and eager to please. The hotel is charming and I understand it is a boutique hotel and not a sterile chain. But at nearly $300 a night (a premium price for St. Patrick's Day weekend, maybe?) I was very disappointed in the cleanliness of our particular room. I think perhaps management needs to do some housekeeping in their housekeeping department.
