“The epitome of a NOLA hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

From the moment you get out of your auto, you realize that this hotel does it right!
After a warm welcome you walk into the most elegant, charming lobby you can imagine. The staff is attentive, informative and accommodating and from the very moment you arrive you know your short stay will be wonderful....
We ate, drank, relaxed in a roof top cabana next to the pool and ate peanut butter sandwiches (a 60 year tradition) at 10:00 p.m. in the lobby with other guests ....an unexpected treat! Plus took a short cab ride or trolly to all of our other NOLA favorite spots.
The hotel is a little out of the way if a French Quarter experience is why you came to NOLA....but definitely worth it because of the peace and quiet on the week-end. If you are there on business, it is perfectly located.
We will stay in this hotel again, and cannot wait to do so!! Bravo!

Beautiful lobby, Room had wonderful high ceiling nice décor touches. Staff was pleasant and helpful. My only reservations were that the parking was too expensive. I thought they had their own parking so I used valet and found out that they just park it 50 ft. away in a public parking lot.
Also not very convenient to anything. You pretty much have to use a cab to get to anything. But because of the local there wasn't as much noise as you would find elsewhere.

This place is like a fairytale. The interior decor is amazing. The staff make any bad day melt away. The trip was well worth the drama to get here. Miss Patty Cakes is the best. Love coming to breakfast hearing her singing.

There's plenty of reasons for the excellent ratings and reviews for Le Pavillon. It's a magical place that transports you back in time. I did not see any ghosts and wonder whether the persons saw spirits before or after ingesting spirits.

One quick tip for those driving to the hotel is to make sure you go past the hotel to a light and turn around if you're coming in on I-10 and take the Poydras exit. If you try to cross Poydras at the crossover beside the hotel, before the next light, traffic can make this crossing long and dangerous (especially during rush hour).

Upon arrival, courteous, uniformed doormen, quickly greet you and welcome you to Hotel. This begins first class service that continues until check-out.

Not to miss are the roof top deck, pool, and exercise facility. The roof top views are breathtaking (a cropped version is in the picture I chose to accompany my reviews; including this one).

The hotel is filled with pictures and art worth walking up and down each floor to view. Late night PB & J sandwiches with hot chocolate is a cool tradition also worth checking out.

Great location with the Central Business District, French Quarter, and Warehouse District within walking distance. The Doormen quickly hail cabs for you if needed. Street car on St. Charles is only a city block away - you have to cross Poydras to catch it at the light.

I was also pleasantly surprised how reasonable the rates were during the week. We usually stay in the Quarter where the rates are usually 2-3 times the discounted rate we found online. For the price, quality, and service, Le Pavillon ensures accommodations will not be your problem and might be one of your best memories during your stay in the Big Easy.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. It's quieter and ours had great windows and views.

We just returned from 4 days in New Orleans. The service at this hotel was amazing. From the moment we arrived the doormen, bellmen, concierges, front desk staff, and restaurant staff could not do enough for us. This a well trained, sophisticated, and sensitive staff. They always were available to answer any question or offer their service. We could not say enough about the people. We were saddened to leave after such a wonderful experience.
It located very close to the French Quarter easy walking distance to most attractions. At night a short cab ride home. City Tours stop close by, as well as Charles St. streetcar. Charming French feel, not like major chains. A real New Orleans experience.

Room Tip: We chose an 8th floor room newly renovated, close to the rooftop pool.

I cannot say enough good things about this Hotel. The rooftop pool is breathtaking!! Everyone is world class and the food is out of this world!! Everything you could ask for is at your fingertips. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich buffet is even over the top classy. Everyone is great!!! Make sure you see Miss Georgia in the dining room, she will make your entire trip! There are so many nice people I feel bad for not mentioning their names also. Please, please stay here. You are within walking distance to everything, or take a cab!!! The trolley also rolls by one block away. We were eight U.S dollars away from, casinos, the Steamboat Natchez, Commander's Palace, You name it!!!!!! Taxi's are so plentiful and cost-effective from this location. Loved everyone and everything about New Orleans and this wonderful Hotel!!!

Room Tip: Make sure you visit the rooftop hotel. Also do not hesitate to ask for a taxi to local attractions...

This hotel is an absolute gem. From the statues of Peace and Prosperity that greet you at the hotel entrance, to the hand-painted ceilings, the tromp l'oeil poolside, the custom porcelain sinks and the ornate woodwork across from the elevators, you never lose a sense of grandeur while you are staying at Le Pavillon. Although we stayed here for a 3-star price, we received 5-star service at all times. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a handwritten note to celebrate our wedding anniversary. (The concierge had emailed me after making our reservation to ask about any needs we had before coming to New Orleans and whether we were celebrating any special occasions. I responded and let them know about our anniversary.) The front desk attendant asked whether we would like the Wall Street Journal or USA Today, and when I replied that I'd prefer the New York Times, they accommodated us immediately. When I found myself downstairs without an umbrella, the concierge handed me one to use for the day. The late night snacks are not just a nice touch, but a way to meet others staying at the hotel and mingle with people from different walks of life. If I ever get the chance to stay at Le Pavillon again, I will grab the opportunity. Thank you for making our stay in New Orleans memorable, and thanks to all of the staff who spoiled us. This is the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in, and definitely not the most expensive.
