We fell in love with Le Pavillon the moment we arrived and the love only deepened the longer we stayed. Walking into the lobby is a bit like stumbling unexpectedly into a wing of Versailles - huge chandeliers, gilt framed oil paintings, antique furniture. Some might find it overdone and gaudy, but we thought it was charming.
But the rooms and the service are what really make for a great stay. The staff were uniformly superb - from porters right through to the concierge. The rooms are comfortable with good fittings and all the amenities you could ever need. We had a lovely quiet room on the 7th floor with block-out curtains and we slept like babies all four nights.
The rest of the hotel's services are equally excellent. The wifi is fast, free and easy to connect to. The rooftop pool is clean, well serviced, well positioned and has plenty of loungers and fresh towels. We used our complimentary robes when we went to and from the pool - another plus. The food is also good, if fairly conventional. But the cherry on the cake is their wonderfully quirky tradition of serving (complimentary) peanut butter and jam sandwiches in the lobby with hot chocolate and milk. We couldn't resist staying up to enjoy this (near) midnight feast each night.
The hotel is also perfectly located, as least as far as we were concerned: close enough to the French Quarter to enjoy all the fun, but far enough away to avoid the late night drunken shrieking and fighting. It's also really easy to get to from the airport with plenty of parking nearby.
In short, we loved Le Pavillon and we think you would too.
