Place d'Armes Hotel
Ranked #30 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed there during our first trip to New Orleans. The location was perfect since it's right in the French Quarter. Nearly everything we had planned was walking distance from the hotel. If we bought something that we didn't want to carry around we would just stop by the hotel and drop it off.

Our room was clean and the staff was very friendly. It had a beautiful courtyard as well. We didn't want to stay at a chain hotel but somewhere that had the local feel, which was exactly what it had! I hope we can go back to New Orleans someday and if we do I know we will definitely book this hotel again!

This was my second visit to NOLA & my first time to stay at the Place de Armes.
It is a cozy hotel in a great location right next to Jackson Square. We had a balcony room which met all of our needs. The courtyard is beautiful and the service was awesome!
I was even impressed with the shower. Since this is an older building, I wasn't expecting much, but the water was always hot and had great pressure. Very clean and we will most definitely stay here on future visits to New Orleans!

As other reviewers have noted, this hotel has a great location. Depending on the purpose of your visit to NoLa I would say perfect location. Easy walk to Frenchmen street (real music scene unlike Bourbon Street), just a few steps to Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde and the French Market. Close enough to Bourbon Street, but still quiet. Hard to imagine a better location really.

The central courtyard is really very lovely... nice place to have a coffee in the morning, or an evening nightcap. There's even a small pool if you feel like a swim.

Other aspects are average or mixed. The staff is mostly friendly, but at times not particularly enthusiastic (with the notable exception of one bellhop ... a lady whose name I can't remember ... she's fantastic). The rooms are small and dark as you would expect in the French Quarter, and while our room was not shabby, it was a bit drab, and the bathroom could use an update. Bed, linens and pillows are not great. The A/C was very loud.

Overall though, no major complaints, and the price is reasonable, especially when you consider the overall atmosphere of the hotel and the location.

We had a great balcony room on St. Ann. We went during the week rather than going during the weekend. Same great service and a bit less hectic than the weekend. Ann at the front desk made sure that we knew where to go for great dining and all of the other staff members were just as helpful. Location of this hotel is second to none-close to just about everything yet just off the beaten path.

Room Tip: We like balcony rooms, but you will hear all the noise from the streets! So if you want a quiet room...

This hotel is very elegantly decorated with a real french feel. The garden courtyard area is just lovely, with a small pool and canopy of trees. Unfortunately we couldn't get a balcony room, so didn't have much of a view. Breakfast is limited, but nice pastries are on offer which you can sit with in the courtyard. Good location- close enough to Bourbon Street but without any noise at night when you're trying to get to sleep. Staff were helpful. But beware- you will not get wifi in your room, you will have to sit in the reception area. Very easy to get to from the highway, and parking is available.

The hotel is ideally situated for the major sights in New Orleans. Turn left out of the hotel and walk a few paces and you're at Jackson Square. The other direction and only a couple of blocks and you're on Bourbon Street. The Place d'Armes is a beautiful quaint hotel with a lovely courtyard with seating and a pool. I would suggest though that you don't book an interior room. Our room was meant to be with balcony or street view, which is kind of what we got. There were no windows in our room but it did at least open out onto an interior balcony overlooking the pool but my daughter's room at the front of the hotel only had a couple of small windows. Therefore the rooms did seem rather dark but they were at least very tastefully decorated and were very clean and spacious. I would imagine that the interior rooms could be a little claustrophobic not having any windows. (only my thoughts!) Breakfast wasn't really great but adequate with only croissants and muffiins and juice, coffee etc. The desk staff maybe could have been a little more accommodating but we actually didn't really need their services while we were there. Robert though was very friendly and helpful!! We took a trip on the Natchez steamboat which was really nice and relaxing and took the bus to the Garden district which was also well worth the trip. The Natchez is only a short walk beyond Jackson square and the buses and trolley buses were available from Canal Street, again only a short walk. There are some fabulous restaurants and bars to be had very close by on Bourbon with non stop music! You must go to Fritzels on Bourbbon, the band were absolutely amazing (drinks were very expensive here but at least we took advantage of some great music) Another must is Cemetery No.1. Not too far to walk (close to Louis Armstrong Park) and well worth the visit if you get the unofficial tour from Walter Ross Jr.!! He told and showed us so many interesting facts about the cemetery that we really didn't mind giving him his suggested tip!!!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a balcony room, either front or inner

You can't ask for a better location. Directly on the side of Saint Louis Cathedral within walking distance to everything. Far enough from Bourbon so it is quiet! Staff was very friendly and helpful ! Courtyard is nice to sit instead of a hotel lobby. Will definitely stay here again! Oh and complimentary continental breakfast each morning!!!!!
