Place d'Armes Hotel
Ranked #34 of 167 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2009

My wife and I just returned from a 5-day New Years getaway to New Orleans If you want to get a real feel of the French Quarter I would highly suggest the Place d’Armes. This is no cookie cutter chain hotel. It is a splendid property made up of a series of buildings that surround a beautiful courtyard. It seems that no two rooms are quite the same and the hotel fits into the European charm that surrounds you while enjoying the French Quarter. Our room had a huge sitting area with a sink and a very comfortable king sized bed in the adjacent room. Though we spent very little time in the room, what time we did spend there was in a clean room that was very pleasant, comfortable and accommodating to our needs.

What made our trip to the Place d’Armes special was the staff. Everyone we encountered was outgoing and helpful. From the bellmen who first greeted us to the desk clerk that checked us out, we found that all of the associates we encountered in-between genuinely seemed to be glad we were there.

And last but not least, the Place d’Armes location is awesome. You literally fall right into Jackson Square as you leave the property. Upon exiting the hotel if you look to your left you will see the Café Du Monde and if you look right you will see Royal Street with Bourbon Street the next block down. No more chain hotels for us on our next visit to the Big Easy, the Place d’Armes will be our hotel of choice!

I stayed at this hotel last week. The courtyard was quaint and cute. The lobby was nicely decorated with a Christmas tree and trimmings. I was booked along with someone else and they gave us rooms in two different buildings, quite a distance away from each other. I thought that they could have done a little better on that, but it is a small hotel so maybe not. The rooms were inside rooms and were clean and nicely furnished. The hotel was in an excellent location. But to he honest, the service was courteous and adequate, but we got the Omni for a lower rate than this hotel where we were pampered and it was a nicer hotel. The breakfast consisted of croissants and jellies and orange juice. Also when we made the reservation, the person was courteous yet not really welcoming. Everything was clean and the bathroom had a hairdryer as did the other hotels that I stayed in.

The hotel was nice, with the location being the most ideal quality. Steps from Jackson square and Cafe du Monde. The room we had was a room facing a narrow courtyard, which made it wonderfully quiet. The only problem I have is the room was realtively no frills and not totally "clean." There was a little bit of mold in the bathroom and the room had a bit of a strange smell. That being said, it wasn't disgusting in the least. It's just an older hotel where the rooms haven't received too much of a facelift in a long time. The location was what sold me, and if I went back I may try a different hotel. Still, not a bad experience, really.

The Place was great! I would recommend it not only to my best friend, but my worst enemy too!! We stayed for 4 nights right after Christmas. Since we arrived prior to check-in time, they kept our bags and took my cell so they could call me when the room was done. Our room overlooked the courtyard, which was beautiful. The room was very nice and due to it's location (219), was a little funky shaped, but that added to the charm. As prior reviews pointed out, the continental breakfast was so-so, but you're a block and a half from Cafe Du Monde so we really didn't care. The staff was very nice and would always greet us when we entered. And of course, the location can't be beat - half block to Royal and 1.5 to Burbon. Keep in mind, it's not the Hyatt, Marriott, or any other chain hotel, it's part of New Orleans. The only place we'd stay in NOLA is the Place.

Overall, we were very happy with this place. It's location was ideal being very close to Bourbon St, Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde, Decateur, etc. The building and courtyard is really charming. The price was reasonable and we liked having the garage on premises b/c parking can be tough in NOLA.

The room we had was a basic room. It met our expectations for what we paid, but it was a little dated (bathroom was probably last updated/styled in the 80s?). We feel the cleaning service could have been a little better; but nothing worth detailing here in this review. Their breakfast was disappointing....coffee, croissants, danishes...thats all, but as Cafe due Monde is a 3 minute walk away....just go there!

Would definitely stay again!

We have stayed at Place d'Armes a number of times over the years and always find it charming. It has a great location and we felt very safe at this property. The staff was helpful and access is easy to about anywhere. We got a great price and even with added parking fee, it was a real value.
Our room did not have a window but that was fine with us, very quiet. The halls did have an odd chemical smell several days we were there. It was enough to be annoying. The bedding shams on our bed also needed cleaning attention as there were visible stains. But, overall, the location and charm of this hotel are a great value.
We attended the free concerts at St. Louis Cathedral and they were just wonderful! We plan to return next year for the pre-Christmas festivities..

Conveniently located just off of Jackson Square, I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and much nicer than the other people we came across in NOLA. The location is great! The customer service was excellent!!! Our room didn't have a window, which made it hard to figure out when it was time to get up, but it also blacked out the room at night and we had no issues sleeping. Even with all the lights on, the room was not well lit enough to read though. Although there was a funny odor in the hall, it was not in the room, thank goodness. My only real complaint was that we returned one day from a full day roaming the city and found out room door open. The cleaning crew had not shut it completely when they left and although nothing had been stolen, it was only out of pure luck. I would recommend this hotel to almost anyone and I felt very safe here otherwise.
