“A very nice place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stumbled on this hotel after our travel plans changed and we end up in NOLA a day early. They had a beautiful room at a great price. The room was clean and bright, the bed was comfortable and the staff was lovely. We enjoyed it so much we canceled our reservations at another hotel and stayed for 3 days.

Boutique quiet hotel located 25 steps off the heart of bourbon street. The rooms are great for the price. A few updates would be nice such as new mattresses and blankets. They have a fantastic coffee shop. We stayed here before and will stay here again and again. We come to Nola once a year and this is Our Place.

The Hotel St. Marie is one of three Valentino family owned hotels in the French Quarter. It is located about half a block north of Bourbon Street, which makes it accessible to the action, but far enough away to sleep quietly. These hotels are all very reasonably priced for New Orleans, but very low for the French Quarter (normally under $100 including parking & taxes). These hotels are very well-maintained & nicely furnished. This property provides a very nice complimentary breakfast. The staff at all hotels is great.

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have good views. Try to get one on facing St. Marie Street.

Overall, this is a good place to stay for the money. Very convenient to the French Quarter. We had a room with a balcony overlooking Toulouse St, and the view was great. The rooms were large, and had everything we needed. However, the rooms need a little more attention to detail In a couple of places, the wallpaper was peeling off, and it was obvious that no one had vacuumed under the furniture in a while. But overall, the room was clean. One major deal breaker is the fact that the only vending area is on the first floor. A plus is a private parking lot with a valet, and parking does not cost extra for hotel guests I will be willing to stay here again, because it is a great bargain for the location, and life is full of trade-offs.

We were two couples from Canada and thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Hotel Ste. MArie. We had balcony rooms facing the street side with our rooms adjoining and our balcony was also adjoining which was fantastic for cocktails and people watching. The staff are very warm and accomodating. The rooms are what you would expect from an older hotel, but this is exactly the type of hotel you want to stay in while you are in New Orleans. Lots of character and the BEST location...just one block off Bourbon Street.....and you can walk everywhere from here. We only had two issues the first being that the in-room wi-fi connection never worked for our entire stay. I reported it, but nothing ever came of it. And of course, as previously mentioned in other reviews, the dreaded 3:00am daily garbage pick-up is very noisy if you have street side rooms. There is also lots of construction going on in the French Quarter at this time so there is also additional construction noise. Suggest asking for inside courtyard rooms if you want more peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Suggest courtyard balcony rooms if you do not want to be awakened at 3:00am for extremely loud daily...

If you want to experience the "real" French Quarter then this a great hotel for you. Although the room was rather musty we figured it was to be expected with a hotel this old. Lots of character throughout, and even a walk out balcony. Ours faced a side street so there wasn't much to see except the little convenience store on the other side of the street, but it was still fun to be outside and look around. The room was small but had everything we needed and the bed was comfortable. Being just a block off Bourbon St made it quick to walk to, but also kept us far enough away from the noise to not be bothered while in the hotel.

Lovely looking character hotel in the heart of the French quarter. Only one block from Bourbon Street, so you could leave the chaos and madness only a half minute walk away and retreat to a quiet peaceful location if required.
The rooms were probably not too far away from needing a bit of a refurb (starting with the carpets), but they were clean and in keeping with the atmosphere and character of the hotel.
We did eat breakfast at the hotel, but it was a fairly expensive experience so didn't bother on our 2nd morning.
Point to note, that the lovely little bar at the front of the hotel was a very relaxing friendly place to meet up prior to going out for an evening meal and also when we got back later in the evening. The hotel was small and friendly enough that our teenage girls were happy enough to go back to the room to watch TV, to allow a bit of social time among other adult guests. We made some good friends across the two night stay. Victoria, the bar-tender was first class and a credit to the hotel.
Would recommend at the drop of a hat.
