“New Orleans Pere Marquette a nice place”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

The hotel is nicely situated one block off of Canal and Burbon St. It was nice and safe basically right where it's happening. The room was nice and the staff couldn't be nicer. The lobby is new.

You are really one block off of Burbon St and there are plenty of places to eat.
I know most people flock to afe Du Monde, but an interesting treat was found nearby in the French Market About 1/2 way in there is a little stand that mades up apple fritters. They ARE AMAZING. They batter apple slices and frie them up, simple but great.

The only things not positive were that the wi-fi is not set up for an ipad, not a deal breaker. For platnum or gold members the consierge was closed and breakfast is not provided.

I've stayed over for two nights. Check-in staff was very nice, welcoming and pro-active in handing out maps and brochures of the city. The hotel is clean and well kept. Room size was good and the shower was great. I missed the contents of the mini-bar. Location is excellent - close enough to the French Quarter but not in the middle of the action/noise. Lobby bar was good but service was a bit slow. Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Gym and the pool are on the third floor - you might want to avoid some rooms there if you have conce...

Stayed one night, November 13, after a cruise. We arrived at 9:30am and were given a room immediately. Did not have to wait until afternoon to check in. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. They could use some new pillows - very thin. The staff very very pleasant and helpful. Excellent location. Close to the French Quarter but away from the noise. Free internet in lobby only.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and convenient - - that's about it. Why anyone would rate this place a 4 star property is beyond me. It just didn't measure up to the other Renaissance hotels I've stayed at. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon - - room wasn't ready so we thought we'd get a bite to eat at the restaurant. We checked at the Navigator desk and she directed us to the restaurant. It was closed (one would have thought that the Navigator Desk would have known that!!!). The room, as previously stated, was clean and comfortable but I have got to tell you that it was four walls with two beds, a tv, desk and - - that's about it. There wasn't even a chair in the room except for the desk. I had read the reviews that this was a modern hotel. After seeing the room, the only thought that came to mind was that this was a minimalistic decorating job. To be in French Quarter and have something so bland with absolutely no warmth or charm, was disappointing to say the least. We were never asked about newspaper delivery - - had to go across the street to The Roosevelt to buy some newspapers. On Sunday night, we again tried to have dinner at Milo, the restaurant - - - closed again!!! The room across from us had room service on Saturday night - - the dishes/glasses were out in the hallway until late Sunday afternoon. Definitely, NOT a 4 star hotel.

We started our weekend at the Courtyard on Julia st....but moved after the first night because of the streetcar noise all night. We were not disappointed! This place is worth the extra block or two walk! The Lobby and rooms were pretty, the wifi worked very well and we were very happy overall with the hotel!

Stayed here for 3 nights in early November, 2011. The lobby is very nice and has a coffee shop which serves Starbucks. The lobby bar, Bar Uncommon, is spectacular. Very hip space and some of the best cocktails in the city.

My room was stylish, spacious and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and beautiful with a wonderful shower. The housekeepers even folded the clothes I left on my suitcase!

The front desk left a little to be desired. I checked in with a different credit card than I made the reservation with only to find out they didn't change the card that the charges would go to. They should have asked when I checked in. Aside from that minor problem I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are nice.

We stayed here for one night during the week. The hotel itself is very clean. The valet was wonderful and friendly. We arrived an hour before check in, but it was not a problem. Our room was one king sized bed, the bed frame stuck out almost a foot, so I now have bruised and bleeding shins, so that is a huge downside.Our room was clean. I especially appreciated the Aveda shampoo/conditioner/soap/body lotion. There was a lighted makeup mirror in our room, but it did not work when I plugged it in. I called the front desk and they had someone bring anew one up within five minutes. I called congrigere once to ask a question, I was told she was talking to someone and she would call me right back. Never got that phone call. The matreess was very comfortable, as were the pillows. I do think it's quite a rip off that the pay per view movies are $16.99, come on!We had fast check in and fast check out. Overall, the hotel was nice and clean.
