“Beyond Noisy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I travel to New Orleans often and decided to try this hotel. The room was nice with a little balcony overlooking Bienville. The real issues began when we returned to the room around 1 am tired and ready to sleep. The noise from outside was incredibly loud. Now we know that the French Quarter is a nosiy and fun place, but this went beyond what we expected. The worst being the person laying on the car horn for hours! At 4:30 am we began to wonder when and if it would ever stop. Sunrise did the trick, but by then we were exhausted. We ended up getting up early, having breakfast (included, but nothing special) and heading home to prepare for Isaac. When my husband mentioned that it was a "little noisy" when checking out, the person just said it was because there had been a football game (we knew that, we were there). Of course, all that being said, the hotel is really not responsible for the noise outside. The bottom line is that this perhaps is not the hotel to choose on a game weekend!

This is a lovely hotel in a great location in the French quarter. The front desk staff were very friendly and attentive. The hotel is built around a lovely courtyard, which also provides a nice setting to enjoy breakfast. The breakfast was very good with a selection of hot and cold food. Our room was modern and very well appointed. The only negative was that we struggled to get any hot water from the shower. We mentioned this, and a chap came up to have a look at it, and he fiddled around with it for a bit and managed to get it a little bit warmer, but I couldn't understand much of what he was saying, and when I came to use it again, it was still tepid. Unfortunately, tropical storm Isaac meant we had to leave a night early, but with the minor exception of the shower, this hotel is highly recommended.

I recently stayed here when I attended a wedding in the hotel and overall I was really pleased. The hotel is in a great location, right off Bourbon street. That makes it a little noisy, but not too bad. The rooms were large and clean. The beds were comfortable with nice crisp white linens and down comforters. There is valet parking with in and out privileges available and the buffet breakfast included in our rate was basic but good. Our only complaints were that the water in the shower only got to luke warm instead of hot and the front desk staff are pretty useless. We tried to ask about transportation options to Commander's Palace where we had dinner reservations and they seem to have none of the normal tourist information that you would expect from a hotel. The answer to pretty much every question was "I don't know" so I finally called the restaurant to get info on taxis and public transit. But other than that, the stay was lovely.

Room Tip: Street facing rooms have balconies which can be nice, but those rooms are a bit louder. For quite...

Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, awesome French Quarter location convenient to walk many places or take the streetcar. Tasteful decoration, great lighting, and no harsh lighting, plus enough of it which seems rare in hotels these days. Rene the bellboy was extremely kind, as was Ms. Sloveknic(?) at breakfast and Caitlin at the front desk. Indeed, everyone we encountered was extremely helpful, warm, and kind. Breakfast was delicious and not just a continental affair. Awesome grits, bacon, sausage, etc. Try the French 75 at the bar, delicious! We have no complaints. We would definitely stay here again.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. we came in early in the am and we were able to check into our room without any problems. we stayed in a petit king one bed and the room met all of our needs. the room was very modern and clean. our room was situated in a quiet area. the only problem was that you could hear the noise from people walking by the hallway and most likely, people in the hallway could hear any noise coming from the room. that didn't give us complete privacy. the breakfast was excellent. loved the courtyard for eating breakfast. and most importantly, the location was perfect for everything. near royal and bourbon street, 10 minutes walking distance to the french market, 10 minutes walking distance to the trolley stop on bienville or canal st. 10 mins walking distance to the riverfront. acme oyster house, which has excellent food (especially fresh oysters) is right around the corner on iberville st. we would definitely come back and stay here again!

I was in town on business. Unfortunately we could only stay one night. Rooms are faboulous. Bed was super comfortable and the shower was super! I was impressed by the service and detail to attention of the staff. It was within walking distance of all of our meetings. Very centrally located. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. I give them two thumbs up!! I will be back with my spouse for a weekend stay.

We had a retreat in New Orleans and our stay at Hotel Mazarin was great. We were close to the activity of the French Quarter, but nicely tucked away in a beautiful room. The courtyard was so nice, breakfast was delicious and the staff was exceptionally hospitable.
