This hotel is just ok. When you walk in the front door, the hotel smells old and dirty. Everything in the hotel needs to be updated and cleaned. The room was ok. Air conditioner worked well. The staff was nice. Located by good resturants.

This was a great place to stay. Centrally located. Super friendly staff and helpful with telling us places to eat and how to get places. Keenya at the front desk is just a doll. Hotel has an old feel to it. I went with my girlfriends for the weekend away to celebrate my boyfriends life and he LOVED this hotel. We decided to make this an annual trip.We will be back for sure.

It’s a small hotel off of Canal near casino. The street is not congested and people don’t hang around outside so you can get in and out peacefully. The staff was great especially the lady with the dreads who checked me in and the bald head young man who worked front desk in the evenings. The only issue I had was the squeaky noise the elevator made. Will stay again.

The Pelham is a very well kept older hotel. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Rooms have floor to ceiling windows and high ceilings. Hotel is within walking distance to Bourbon st and French markets but tucked away on a quiet street

I was supposed to attend my bachelorette party in April of this year and it was canceled due to the Coronavirus. Not because we were scared, but because the Country was shut down. We had no choice. I booked my reservation through Hotels.com and had to pay in full up front. Rather than get a refund, I was told that I would receive a voucher to use within the next year at the same hotel. I have yet to receive this voucher and have tried contacting Hotels.com many times to get this resolved. I have even reached out to this hotel and they never called me back. I was charged $735.40 for three nights at this hotel and am not sure I will ever get to stay here. Without a voucher, I cannot make the reservation. I definitely will not use Hotels.com ever again, but I wish that the hotel would make it right since they did get paid.
