My husband and I stayed at this marvelous hotel for four nights in early March. Valet parking in the lot next door was lighted and very safe. The bellboy and door man were efficient and friendly, as were all the staff we interacted with. At check-in my husband jokingly mentioned an upgrade, and to our surprise we were given one. Our deluxe queen/queen room on the 5th floor was small but the high ceilings made it feel larger. Lots of interesting details in the room--framed prints of local plantations hung by gold cord on the walls, black granite countertops in the bathroom, a ceiling fan, plush curtains (that really blocked the morning daylight), lots of decorative pillows piled on each bed and a doorbell outside each door on this floor. Other amenities were also impressive. The 32-inch TV in the armoire was unexpected. The bathroom, while small, was nicely done with plenty of towels and a heater fan to warm the chill. The closet had plenty of room, as well as a fair-sized safe. The beds were moderately firm and comfortable, with double-sheeted blankets.
The gym on the top floor had the customary endurance machines as well as weight training. The fridge there was stocked with Powerade and water, and there was a large basket with complimentary apples and bananas on top of the fridge. The rooftop pool area overlooking the city was very nice, with a small heated pool, hot tub and cabanas. We did not eat in the restaurant while we were there, but we did order room service for breakfast one morning. My eggs benedict was found to have quite a bit of egg shells in one half, but this replaced quickly after one call to dining, and the new dish was excellent. We did the PB&J one night, and thought it fun and quirky. Turn down service was prompt and included a complimentary PB&J cookie and bottle of water.
Although the hotel decor (especially the lobby) is very ornate, we never felt out of place on those days we were wearing casual clothes. The hotel is withing walking distance to the French Quarter (Bourbon Street is three blocks away) and a bit more of a hike to Riverwalk and other nearby attractions. There is a Garden District streetcar stop a block-and-a-half away.
Our receipt at check-out reflected accurate charges and was a great deal (special internet rates), considering all the amenities we enjoyed. We would not hesitate to stay at Le Pavillon again.
