“Terrific Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Recommended by a friend who stayed here before. It is a terrific hotel for the price. The location is wonderful - right on the St. Charles streetcar line. Service and staff were outstanding. Rooms very comfortable and up to date. Will certainly stay here again.

We arrived at this hotel after a long bus journey then a 12 hour train journey from Nashville,
We had firstly payed to stay at Saint vincents guest house (please do not stay here even if your on a budget) but when we got to our room we were extremely unsatisfied and we decided to go for a walk, when we came across this hotel. The manager at the desk noticed how upset and exhausted we were and told us the price of the room per night, but said there is a coupon he can put through for us so we stay for $79.99 instead of over $100, so we immidatley checked out of the other horrid place and checked in to this one with ease. Once in our room it was lovely art deco with two queen beds, a huge tv with all the channels needed and amazing aircon (which is defiantly needed with the heat in New Orleans). A second plus to this hotel is that the street trams are on the same street which are lovely surrounded by palm trees and the tram stop is right outside the hotel.
The breakfast was really good having sausage, bacon and egg. As well as cereal, muffins, toast, yogurts and fruit.ll an amazing hotel and all the staff were great!! I would recommend this to everyone.

I've stayed here 5+ times. They have the kind of beds you melt in. The decor is amazing. The jacuzzi suites are the best. They have french doors that open to the balcony, over looking St. Charles Ave., and the Street Car (Trolley) Line. Very, very spacious rooms. ROOM SERVICE was great every time!!!

Everything and everybody associated with the hotel always makes my stay a pleasant and wonderful experience. However, due to unforeseen last minute changes in order to accommodate my guest and her son with special needs, the evening manager, Brian Luppens lifted the already high bar of hospitality and made this trip even more special. I should also note that the valet parking guys and room service were also great.

My favoirite place to stay when visiting New Orleans. Easy to get to downtown and the French Quarter using the St Charles Streetcar, plus fun to ride uptown to Audobon Zoo and Riverbend area. Large rooms, friendly staff, and Copeland's has wonderful food. Quiet but close to everything. I have stayed here several times over the last couple of years and have never had an issue with the rooms or staff.

I am so pleased to hear we are your "favorite place to stay in New Orleans." It is wonderful to hear when we are doing things right over at the Grand Boutique Hotel and I thank you for sharing your experience with us and our future guests.
What a great tip to offer regarding New Orleans transportation. The streetcar is an amazingly fun way to see our city, and for 1.25 per ride you can't beat the price! Since it passes directly in front of the hotel it is such a quick and convenient way to explore.
I hope you have a great day and hope to see you on your next visit to New Orleans.

I stayed here for two and a half weeks while teaching a summer class at Tulane. The staff made sure I knew what was happening around town, how to get there, and were genuinely interested in helping me to enjoy everything I could while in New Orleans. One manager, Brian Luppens, deserves special kudos - when a colleague and I rented bikes he told us all about local bike routes, safe roads, and social bike groups who welcome visitors and newcomers for easy rides. He really saved the day when we took the ferry to Algiers for Wednesday night music at The Point and the ferry broke down after it dropped us across the river. There was no way to get back to New Orleans because the emergency buses only took 2 bikes at a time and there were dozens of us waiting. Mr Luppens recognized us in the crowd, found a pick-up truck driver willing to take our bikes back and someone else to drive us across the bridge. He gave up his own chance to get a ride with people he knew just so we could get back to the hotel. That's exceptional service!

These folks could not have been nicer. Everyone bent over backwards to be helpful and friendly. Rooms were spacious, beds were great, and breakfast was good. I would highly recommend it's convenience to streetcars, French Quarter, Garden District, and universities. Lovely people and visit.
