The hotel is a bit older and the rooms were just average, but the location was perfect for guests looking to be in the heart of the French Quarter (it's just one block off Bourbon), but far enough from the noise and action that it didn't impact our sleeping.

The best part of all was that the hotel staff was exceptional. They provided wonderful customer service, even providing one of my friends a guest room to pump (breast milk) after we had checked out for the day.

We had the "do not distub" sign on the door, and they didn't enter the room but left fresh towels by the door each day. That was a nice touch. It was also nice that they provided towels by the pool without having to worry about taking your own towels. The pool and surrounding courtyard area was fairly small, but the hotel itself is small. So, think more "quaint" than big and noisy.

I'd definitely recommend staying there again because it was an enjoyable trip, good accommodations and wonderful staff.

We booked the Hotel St. Marie for a law school graduation celebration and had a wonderful time. We had three rooms with inside balconies overlooking the pool area. The rooms were huge by Quarter standards and the staff were overly friendly and very helpful.

The location could not be better---1/2 block off of Bourbon but none of the noise. We have stayed in the Quarter often but this was our first time at the Hotel St. Marie. We will definitely book again. Great value for the price.

Fantastic summer rates have now kicked in. Book a trip and help re-jazz New Orleans. We enjoyed this small hotel immensely. Let the good times roll again!

First of all, its our bad, we wanted cheap...we got it! This hotel looks like at one time it was quite nice. And were trying to give it a break due to Katrina recovery, but we checked in (to a very dark room) and immediately see roaches in the bathroom, which we had to call down to have them come up and clean (and it looked like somebody just urinated all over the toilet rim) but, the phone was broken, so we couldnt! They were accomodating to most requests but, still...roaches and unclean toilet? After 5 days there, they still hadn't fixed the phone.

Be prepared for noisy as hell if you stay here. Thin walls and people up all night partying in the pool (supposed to be closed at 10pm) We know its the FQ and people are there to party, but we couldnt sleep and the staff would do nothing about the noise. Plus the balcony which we upgraded for could barely fit two people and a chair.

On the third day, room service decided to come at 8:00am and after having to yell to keep them from barging in, they never came back to clean so we had to beg for clean sheets and make up our own room later that night.

The staff was not unfriendly but due to all the above, it was a negative experience.

**I still do recommend this place...read on...*

Our room smelled like urine. I understand we're in New Orleans and a musty smell often comes with it, so I'm not being overly sensitive here... after airing the place out with the door open for a good hour and spraying some woman's body spray, it was pretty much fine...but when we stepped through that door we were pretty close to demanding a new room... but we're pretty easygoing people and took all things into consideration.

This was the only issue we had...the beds were comfy, the bathrooms nice, super clean otherwise...just a funky urine like smell. The lobby is awesome and immaculate, the staff is beyond friendly and accomodating and the hotel is close enough to Bourbon St. without being right on top of it. The bar attached, Hillery, I believe, is cute and awesome with a great bartender. I really do recommend this place... because it's a fact, most hotels in New Orleans will have a funky musty smell, that's life....so bring a bottle of Febreze and have a good time at Hotel St. Marie.

We stayed at the Hotel St. Marie from May 10-14. Basically what I've read about it on here is true. The location is great. My husband noticed a faint "smell" in the room, but I did not. The balcony was, indeed, quite small. The courtyard is very pretty and comfortable, although not much room around the pool. We didn't hear any noise from other rooms. The staff was very helpful in getting us a cab back to the airport. We didn't try the restaurants, so I can't comment on those. One big thing I would have liked is if the room had a little fridge. It's so hard to have to throw away the wonderful N.O. food because we didn't have a fridge for leftovers! I think the hotel's price is great for its location. It's not the BEST hotel I've stayed in, and we'll probably try somewhere else next time just because we like to see what else there is, but it was definitely one of the better ones we've been to.
