“Renaissance Hotel at Mardi Gras”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

4 of us stayed at this hotel on Mardi Gras night. VERY nice hotel. Room was immaculate and very modern. Bathroom was big and clean. The walk to Bourbon Street wasn't long. I would definitely stay here again!

This hotel is close to the French Quarter but a few blocks off on a seedy side street that smelled like vomit. The rooms are starting to show their age. The only bright spot is that each room has its own individual wifi which is nice compared to other hotels where the signal is often weak.

I just stayed at this hotel during Mardi Gras. The lobby and our room were both really clean and attractive. The hotel still has some of its original historic characteristics, like the windows. Our room, though small, was welcoming and nicely decorated: the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with a marble sink, nice lighting, and good water pressure. I travel ALOT and therefore have the Marriott Rewards membership. I was granted access to the Club/ Concierge lounge where they provide complimentary breakfast and dinner on the weekdays. The food was freshly prepared with hot foods and fresh fruit; the dining room is on the top floor, allowing you to look out over New Orleans.

The hotel is really well located. It is just one block from Bourbon Street and 2 blocks from St. Charles Ave, allowing you to easily walk to all of the fun things to do and see, but far enough away from the Mardi Gras festivities that you can sleep in peace (when ever you decide sleep becomes necessary in this crazy city).

My only gripe would be that the on-site parking lot was pretty expensive- $35/night, and they charged us extra for being parked there during an "event" (a Mardi Gras parade on Canal St), even though we'd had the car parked there for 2 straight days without ever using it once.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Everyone was very nice and willing to assist with making our New Orleans experience a great one. It's a block away from the French Quarter which was great because most restaurants, bars, and attractions were within walking distance. I think we only took a cab about three times. You won't hear the partying noises from the busy streets which is a plus. Room was a bit small but very clean and modern. Big downer for us was the lack of wifi in the guest rooms. It was only available from the lobby which is not what I'm used to. Pretty much all hotels, (including 2 and 3 star hotels) are wifi equipped. They did offer hard wire access for a daily fee but that doesnt work for ipads or iphones so it didn't work for us. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would go back but only if they update their wifi accessibility.

Room Tip: Request a room without a street view. Keeps peeping Toms away.

Hotel is in an excellent location, very convenient to the thrills of Bourbon Street without the loud noise. Rooms are a nice size but if you are staying 3 or more, just know it’s likely that the beds will be a full size. Steps away from one of the best restaurants in the city, Dazy Dukes, which is open 24 hours.

Room was small with cheap furniture from some other era. Bathroom was at least spacious. No wifi. Hard wire only which is NG for iPads/phones. Lobby seemed a limitless weird somehow. Place looked better on line. Attached restaurant is only appropriate for your typical boring hotel breakfast (NOT NOLA style !)
