Stayed the Pelham in July and will be letting all my friends know all about it.. Staff were friendly, loved the decor.. I had never been to America before and all of the staff were super friendly and couldn't do enough for me. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and suprisingly quiet. Had a great week there. We will be back

This hotel is in a great location on Common St- just a couple of blocks from St Charles and about 1.5 blocks from Canal. Can very easily walk to the French Quarter. The room was very clean and plenty big enough for the 4 of us.

Stayed in July 2012. Beds are incredible! Property is overstated on most sites as it is a older hotel with no coffee in room. Pretty sure the overload on the outlet in bathroom blew up my curling iron...no worries bought a new one!
Close walking to Bourbon Street!

This place was wonderful! The ceilings were at least 20 feet high with pillars throughout the hotel. Old statues decorate the lobby and hallways. It has an old world, European style. If you're looking for a modern hotel, this place is not for you. The restaurant in the hotel had good food and was reasonably priced. It was only open for breakfast and dinner, though. The location was only a block off of the French Quarter and within walking distance of Burbon St.

I stayed at the Pelham while in town for a conference and had a good experience. The front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was a little rough around the edges, but overall very nice -- especially for the price. This room was a much better deal than the conference hotel would have been, and had a lot more charm!

My stay was not good. I became stuck on the elevator, found a bug in my bed, and it smelled terrible from water damage which had never been fixed. It was also very dated. Hot water was slow, things were clearly damaged and old. Its one redeeming qualit was the friendly workers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows, has interior rooms.
