Location is everything, but it comes with "cool" from the moment you enter. Easy going, helpful, fun staff. Look out for JT. Kick back in the bar, or in the courtyard by the sea water pool, with whatever drink you desire. Enjoy being in the "Big Easy" at a place which gives that little bit extra.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms but our preference is a higher floor.

The Hotel Le Marais is a very nice hotel with a great location. We had a King room overlooking the courtyard and it was beautiful. Very quiet room. The location is really good 1/2 block off Bourbon Street on Conti. The staff was very friendly and helpful at arranging tours. There is a great resturant right next door called Oceania..really good food. We will stay here again next time in NOLA!

-Cons: valet parking is a little confusing and a bit pricey for the headache/a little noisy at times in the Street side (Conti) rooms.
-Pros: Our truck was safe and secure/patio rooms were very quiet considering what was behind us! (We stayed in rooms on both sides)
-Staff: bellhops were more than helpful, front desk staff all had great attitudes. There was a very cute curly brunette bartender who made an amazing bloody mary.
-Rooms: rooms were extremely clean, remodeled and very cool. A bit small for some people but know that you are in the french quarter!
-all around: hotel was great. After staying in many hotels in New Orleans, We will only be staying in this one from now on! Pool/patio was great!

An oasis right in the heart of New Orleans, close to Bourbon Street. Le Marais is in a great location for numerous bars and restaurants. It is very "boutique" - classy and modern with nice touches like biscuits in reception, free breakfast and drinks coupons for a drink at the bar. Our room was spacious and comfortable, complete with coffee maker, safe etc. There is a gym and a - very small - pool in a lovely courtyard area and the service is very friendly and helpful. A great base in New Orleans and if I return I would stay there again.

My review would have been excellent had our sheets been clean when we arrived, but there were curly black man hairs on my sheets when I pulled the covers back. They did respond immediately and brought new sheets. The location is perfect, 1/2 block from bourbon and very quiet. We stayed in room 505. The pool, the staff, the room…all perfect. Modern decor, very well maintained and towels were great. The pillows were very hard. Breakfast was great and the infused-with-fruit water by the pool was delicious. I would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 505 was wonderfully quiet.

My husband and I enjoyed a four-day stay at this lovely boutique hotel. We had the complimentary breakfast in the small courtyard every morning. The room was a comfortable size and we paid a small upcharge for a courtyard facing room. It was quiet and a very nice break from the rowdy crowds in the French Quarter. The staff is very nice. They all seemed to take pride in their work and in welcoming guests to New Orleans. I really enjoyed the mix of international travelers and the various families, couples and singles who stayed there. If there are two of you, save a few dollars by using a taxi instead of the van service to get to and from the airport.

The hotel and staff exceeded my expectations every day we were there. The rooms were quiet, comfortable, and very clean. Every area of the hotel that we encountered was spotless. Every member of staff was friendly and went out of their way to help regardless of the request. For example, it was raining outside and we were having difficulty finding a cab so the bartender from the hotel bar ran down the road in order to hail down a cab for us. This generous behavior could be seen at all times. Nothing was ever too great or too little a request.

The outdoor area was beautiful and very clean. It was a shame that the weather wasn't particularly nice the days we were there, but we still were able to sit outside each morning and enjoy the complimentary breakfast.

I truly cannot praise this hotel and staff enough. I will be visiting New Orleans again in the next year or so, and I am absolutely confident that I will be choosing Hotel Le Marais as my point of accommodation.
