Booked thru a discounter and still found this to be a PERFECT French Quarter hotel. (Have stayed at the Hotel Provincial, and the Bienville House in the past - and was surprised to find that I liked this best of the three, even though it is the least expensive!) Bienville House is ever so slightly more upscale, but this is a close second and the location is FAR better. Provincial is on par with Hotel St. Marie in terms of decor, style and yet again, isn't quite as 'central' as Hotel St Marie. The location is just right - everything you'll want to visit is in walking distance in all directions. What really made our stay extra nice was that upon asking at check-in, we were offered a FREE upgrade to a balcony room overlooking the charming street, even though we'd used priceline and only reserved an interior room. On a quiet Sunday/Monday visit they were able to accommodate this request, and did so nicely. It really made our stay! The wrought iron balcony was very relaxing to come back to for a brief rest after wandering the Quarter with a couple of patio chairs and small table. Balcony is spacious (visible in all pictures of the exterior of the hotel) and though individually divided, you'll be sharing space with your neighbors as the only dividers are wrought iron of course. Bourbon Street is close, but, no worries, this is a quiet, side street location. Beds were very comfortable with quality linens, bathroom was clean and well stocked. Charming decor and period style furniture. (Louvre doors to the bathroom - if privacy is an issue.) Courtyard and pool are small but clean and abundant with lush greenery - romantic and quaint. Front desk staff were friendly, helpful with directions and suggestions -- and on a rainy night even offered us an umbrella. If you'd like to experience true New Orleans style charm, instead of a boring old chain hotel, and want a real bargain in a great location - do not hesitate to stay at Hotel St. Marie. We will most definitely choose this hotel again!
