More hotel than what we expected. Great staff, great location, great food, great hotel! Will make it our go to hotel every time we visit.
Really enjoyed the Historic aspect of the Hotel. Very opulent, and had wonderful informative signs regarding various history of the building. Staff is really good, polite, and helpful.
- Location, location, location. Traveled with a friend and this was incredibly convenient to everything we wanted to do in NOLA. I'd absolutely bring bikes if you have the means, makes the city a lot more accessible and reduces transportation issues. - Pool - Staff was awesome, very accommodating even at the last minute - it's clear that they all like their jobs - Stored our bikes in the room downstairs so they didn't take up space in the smaller room and the doormen were always available to open it up for us. Before we found this out they kept our car in a gated lot close by to make sure our bikes were safe on the car. - Free drinks at bar are slightly misleading... Not a total scam but just make sure you want well liquor and add up the cost prior to making it a double with "premium" liquor. - Valet can be slow but they did give a heads up that it would take 40 minutes at some times. - Depending on where you are in the hotel you may have a way to walk down the halls to your room but this isn't really a big deal. - Truly not that bad - if I HAD to pick bad things this is what I remember but I would absolutely stay there again.
The room was giant The place was shabby, even the uniforms were cheap. The hotel bar closed at 12:30, the room service was from like 4-10 and was provided by a third party, in the morning I called for a sprit and it took FOREVER for it come. I paid 450 for that room. I should have been at the Four Seasons level.
Everything. The people working the desk when we checked in around 10pm were exceptional employees. N/a
Right by Bourbon St room was clean and nicely appointed great central courtyard with pool Location makes it noisy rooms on one side were noisy to a non-stop generator terrible pillows no room service uninformed staff (front desk not aware there was no room service, housekeeping not clear whether feather pillows existed... isn't this a basic requirement in most hotels? plastic mattress cover - I guess too many people enjoy the party atmosphere too much & they have mattress issues!
I can't even put into words just how amazing the staff were. Every single person I met was so friendly and accommodating. Even going as far as making me a make shift shower chair due to my ankle being broken and needing assistance. Every need was met and then some! The ONLY issue we had was the sensitivity of the room keys. We had to have them remagnetized every day sometimes numerous times in a day.
Beautiful hotel with friendly, efficient staff. If you want to stay in the heart of Bourbon Street this hotel is it. Upgrade to Balcony suite for a perfect stay. Everything was great.
i stayed here with a group of 9 women. This hotel was in the very best location to walk everywhere that we wanted to go in the French Quarter. It was a really great price and i would definitely stay there again, group or individually. Having traveled to NOLA many times and stayed at many similar hotels, this was the easiest, cleanest, and best value by far.
I loved the location of the hotel the staff was courteous and friendly. The in hotel restaurant had good food but was a bit pricey. Our room was clean, I am a picky person so it met my standards. I thought some areas could have had better house keeping. Large dust bunnies were all over the floor near the stairs. The main area that was traveled by the guests were kept cleaner. But most importantly I didn't like that they permitted a drunken homeless person to sleep outside of the hotel doors, not a good first impression for many guests.
location is great Thought the staff at the front desk could have been nicer. They didn't even say thank you for staying when I checked out.
Staying on the corner of Bourbon Street and Orleans St was perfect. The staff was very friendly, including valet and bellman. We didn't ask for much, but we were given a lot. The free drink at check in certainly didn't hurt! I also really liked the beautiful area in front of check in. It reminded me if a formal living room, and any time I stopped to sit in there I met other guests. It was just so homey. I didn't like the parking fee. I booked through Trip Advisor and it said parking, but nothing about the extra fee. I think it was more the surprise of it that kind of bothered me. Also, I'm not certain the air was working. It wasn't hot, but it wasn't cool either. That said, we never mentioned it to the staff, given we were only in the room to sleep, so I think they would have fixed it or moved us had they known.
Royal, old-fashioned feel consistent with New Orleans old city. Room was a bit smaller than expected, but sufficient for a couple.
Elegance Central for visiting French Quarter Customer-Friendly Historic Small room for Big Price
In the middle of the French Quarter, but still accessible to the Convention Center. Great staff. Beautiful historic hotel.
Hotel offers a great lobby, bar area, and dining. If your trip includes the French quarter this location is outstanding. You are surrounded by great dining of all types. I would stay here again
The historical atmosphere The valet parking garage was a bit tight to manipulate
Friendly staff. Clean. Quiet. Conveniently located in the French Quarter.
* Staff was very helpful, sorted out a room mixup quickly and appropriately, and compensated us for our time waiting * Fantastic pool and view from the roof, the rooftop bar was great * Really a perfect location - about two blocks from Bourbon made it close enough to the street to feel like you're in the bustle, but far enough away to recover after a long night in peace * We were able to get a great value for the room. * Hospitality staff restocked our room's ice and bottled water every night * Super small room, was not able to fit a single cot in the room without moving the dresser * Bed barely fit two people. * Slightly misleading depending on the website you book on, "Double" or "Queen" in our case meant a single bed, and assumedly the same room * Tiny bathroom. Towels were forced under the sink. * Bar closed earlier than I would have expected
The beds were the best I had a hard time trying to get my girls to leave The sandwich we got from room service
Staff was great! Location is excellent. Our room was really small but it still worked. The cinnamon smelling toiletries should be changed to something more refreshing.
Felt like I was in Paris!
Great location and staff. The valet parking crew was very professional and courteous. Olga at the bar was a pleasure to talk too. I liked the modern decor as well. I would recommend this hotel most of the time. Walls are thin--I could hear people talking on both sides of my room. I imagine it has something to do with being an old building. Fortunately it didn't last long, however, if you are there for any kind of festival where there will be a lot of late night partying (it's near Bourbon street so this may happen quite a bit), I'd recommend being one of them instead and not assuming a good night sleep.
For the price, the inn provides access to the French Quarter, into which I went for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and nightlife. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and eager to help. The room and inn have that French Quarter feel (e.g., courtyard, exposed brick, tall windows). The room was comfortable except for one point. The shower was glass, not a curtain, and was nice for such an inexpensive room. My friends who stayed at the same conference were jealous that I was staying in classier accommodations than they for the same or less! My room on the first floor had no weather strip on the bottom of the door and suffered a draft. Once plugged with a spare blanket, however, the room was cozy. Also, the electrical cords for the television were rather lazily slung over the TV itself. It looked shabby.
Staff and accommodations Nothing
I wanted an authentic New Orleans French market experience and that's exactly what I got at the French market inn. Everything was perfect. It was historical, right across the street from the Riverwalk, two blocks down from Bourbon Street, Clean, safe, right across the street from Cafe Du Monde. We decided that we would stay here every time we came to New Orleans. It was nothing that I didn't like. I'm used to stay and four star hotels so I had to adjust to the boutique feel of the room, but I bet it was comfortable and the atmosphere was authentic and great.
The hotel is right at the base of the French Quarter. If you plan to stay in the Quarter, this is a great option. Noise and parking. During a busy time, self park will be almost impossible. We valeted in order to avoid searching for a space.
The location was absolutely perfect: within a few short blocks to all the fun. But the location also provided much needed quiet at night. The facilities were clean and absolutely beautiful. I will absolutely stay here again and will tell everyone about this gem!
Close proximity to must see locations, restaurants and activities; staff was friendly & accomodating
I really enjoyed my stay. I appreciated the historic feel of the room with brick walls. I was skeptical at first about renting a room with no windows, but it exceeded my expectations and wasn't as sketchy as imagined. There were plenty of lamps to substitute the natural lighting. The staff was very friendly. They greeted everyone who passed through the lobby with a smile and were helpful with suggesting local places to eat. Great location for the french quarter experience. I felt as if the carpet in my room had not been cleaned or vacuumed before my stay. There was obvious staining and debris visible. I am glad I brought slippers. It seems as if the cleaning of the rooms could be more detailed as there were trash under/behind the dresser and side table.
Very courteous service No window or refrigerator
Great location and next to everything. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful
Location Had to pay for parking. No complementary toothpaste or bottled water.
We were super close to Bourbon St but never heard it- which was great! We had an interior room with no windows which I was a little apprehensive about booking at first but it proved to be the best idea ever! After getting in to town early in the morning and wandering around a lot, it was great to ha e a quiet, dark room for an afternoon nap. New Orleans is always busy and there are always people out on the streets at all hours- I highly recommend the windowless rooms for peace and quiet when it's time to get away:)
The hotel was amazing. I went through Kayak and found this hotel with great reviews and $100 under our budget! When we walked in, the lobby was cute, perfectly decorated, and had the New Orleans feel we were looking for *cough*we're tourist*cough*. We were greeted by Lonny the bellman, who wouldn't let us lift a finger with our bags. He even gave us some free wine vouchers for a near by café. Check in was standard with no wait time and a friendly front desk staff. There is a small pool and patio area if you wanted to take a quick dip (by small pool, it is incredibly small, but still nice to have as an option). This hotel is cute, clean, and has the New Orleans experience with just a quick walk to Bourbon St, Café Du Monde, amazing shops in the French Quarter. Since we were driving from across country, we had an entire SUV packed with professional camera equipment, expensive camping gear, and pretty healthy supply of clothes etc. We were concerned about street parking and were told that if we valet our car with the hotel, it would be in a garage, 24 hour surveillance, and returned to us in the exact same condition we left it in. We thought "it's only $15 more than parking across the street, and we will have piece of mind" so we went with the valet. We remove our luggage for the night, brought in the camera gear (thank god) and carried on with our New Orleans experience as they drove our car off to the garage. Being a typical girl, I realized I left something in the car and asked the front desk if I could either walk to the car or have it brought around. She gave me quick directions and I headed to the parking garage. When I approached the booth in the garage, the gentlemen working pointed to the pay lot across the street, and handed me the keys. I was confused because it was just a $20 over night pay lot that we could have easily used instead of paying $15 more for the "garage" we were told our car would be in. I grabbed my items, double checked all the doors were locked, and took the keys back to the employees in the booth. When I got back to the hotel, I told my boyfriend about the differences in what we were told we were getting and what we actually got as far as parking went. We both agreed that there must be some reason for it and that the garage was full or they would move the car at some point. 8AM: Our hotel phone rings. The supervisor of the parking garage was calling to let us know he was ready to take our car to the shop to have the windows replaced. You can imagine our confusion, seeing as we had gone to bed late and had partaken in what New Orleans had to offer, IE we were hung over and had no idea what was going on. We get dressed and head down to meet with the garage supervisor who informed us that between 3-5am the driver's and passenger side windows had been broken and it looked like items were removed from the car. We head over and look over everything. Sure enough, it was in the same spot it had been the night before, sans two windows. It only looked like some center console change and our GPS had been taken(which was in a locked glove box). The parking garage paid for everything to be replaced that had been taken, and replaced the windows. Our plan was to leave at 12pm after some beignets from Café Du Monde, but ended up having to stay until 6pm waiting for the car to be fixed. Of course our room and valet charges were comped, and the staff acted accordingly, it was just an unfortunate situation that could have been avoided if the front desk had the real information regarding where their guests' vehicles were actually parked. Take what you will from this. Be it, sh*t happens and you move on, or it was a nice stay, something bad happened, and the hotel did the best they could.
Staff was very accommodating and friendly. They were overbooked due to a wedding for the first night of our stay but they comped us at the Sheraton two blocks away. Then we returned for the rest of our trip, and everything was excellent. Very nice pool area with cabanas, trees, vines, and drink service! Location was also perfect.
Great facility, great courtyar, cute pool, nice modern layout
Wonderful courtyard and pool area. Romantic hideaway in New Orleans
All the above
The location and the friendly staff Did not like the new decor at all! Air-conditioning was not working properly.
Great location. Great water pressure. Gym was more than adequate for me, although was small, so if more than a few people wanted to work out at the same time, it could get a little crowded. Very friendly/helpful staff.
The staff was probably the best ive ever encountered. Very hospitable and friendly. Location was great! Drinks were bery good at the bar. And the best part was being able to relax outside in the pool area I pretty much liked everything. Just thought the beds could have been a little more comfortable. But overall great hotel. I would definitely stay here again
Staff is wonderful. Courtyards are perfect and the location is great! Would definitely stay here again.
If you are looking for a place to stay in the French Quarter, close to the action but not in the midst, this is it. Hotel Provincial is everything you'd expect with a boutique hotel. Rooms were small but adequate. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom space is generous. One of the best features is the middle courtyard. Kind of acts like and outdoor lobby. Enjoyed sitting there early in the AM before heading out for fun. Hotel convenient to Jackson Square, Royal/Bourbon street action yet far enough off track so you don't have to "live" with the distraction. Most of the staff was friendly and very helpful A few staff members need to go back to customer relations 101, but thrat is hardly a reflection of the staff overall
Great service even though the hotel was booked solid for ballgames in town! Awesome doorman/concierge and continental Breakfast~ Breakfast dishes could be a little bit larger - and/or a tray to carry since we had to sit outside to dine~
2 blocks from bourbon
location price furnishings, maintenance level
Pool, beds, doorman and location Desk staff and the lose of free breakfast
Hotel room was beautiful. Loved our car was inside the courtyard, safe and close. Can't wait to go back.
My absolute favorite thing was the real shuddered Windows, floor to ceiling that actually opened up to the French quarter. Like you could hang out the window and watch the groups go by on the haunted New Orleans tours. The fact that they stopped in front of my hotel was only slightly nerve racking The room smelled a little like mold and my ears and throat itched all night. Also, the toilet seat was loose and threatened to throw you on the floor everyone you sat on it.
At first I thought the location was good but at 3am a large group of bums would gather outside of our room fighting,singing,and yelling very loudly-so much that we were scared for our safety. They would not accept our travelocity reservations and tried to charge My credit card again, even though it was already paid for. We did not get the rooms we asked for with two queen beds. The restaurant was closed the entire time we were there too. For the price we paid the tiny room should have had a refrigerator or at least a coffee maker.
location was perfect especially for the price. Staff was extremely friendly I did not like that I wasn't able to spend more time there!
hotel was clean, staff was attentive, great location right in the quarter, good breakfasts, surprisingly quiet despite its location, nice pool and bar areas
Great location. The floor was surprisingly comfortable. The cleaning staff was very nice and tolerant of our shenanigans. The bartender downstairs was super sweet...she continued to give us alcohol even when we totally should have been cut off. The luggage valet made an excellent skateboard. The concierge was very helpful although he kept trying to sell us on signing up our group on a swamp tour with 30 minutes notice...there was no way we would be able to gather our group that quickly even if we weren't highly intoxicated. Also, he seemed irritated when we suggested they allow us to drive fan boats as a part of the tour. Our lamp was broken and glued back together. "The bathroom doesn't work right," kept being mentioned throughout our stay. Not enough towels to make a decent blanket. Would have liked a vent in the bathroom to filter out "unpleasant" scents. The pool had way too much chlorine but it makes sense with all the urine that is released on a daily basis...maybe post a sign that reads "No urinating in pool."
The bellboy was amazing and the location was great! But the $35 charge to park your car one time is ridiculous. Also the a/c in the room wouldn't cool. We burned up all night. Could barely sleep.
Service was really bad, no ac nightmare of a night
Great location for our group. Easy walk to everything. Lots of noise from the bars but we knew that in advance. Staff was so helpful and friendly. Pool area and lobby were really nice. One elevator was being renovated, so we took the stairs most of the time.
Location Water bottle and wrapper were left in the room from previous occupant.
Great location right on Bourbon Street, clean rooms friendly staff. Bad decisions from the reception staff (3 hours to get our room after we arrived in 3 different attempts) and our keycard was not programmed correctly even then. Noisy hotel with the street on one side, the pool being worked on with a jackhammer in the morning on tho other side, and very thin walls everywhere.
Staff was great. Location is right in the middle of Bourbon St. Location is right in the middle of Bourbon St. If you want to sleep at night, get a room on the courtyard side. Rooms are very small. Worst bartender on the street (when she's there). If you order a beer, you'll be OK.
The help I received at the front desk from everyone was top notch!
Bourbon street is blocked at night. Please put the other street name bordering the hotel that offers parking so the GPs can find the parking for the hotel easily. Thank you
Friendly staff, everything worked Noithing
DEt var meget centralt beliggende og dermed et sikkert sted I byen En meget original og hyggelig atmosfære for byen
god beliggenhed i French Quarter. Venligt personale ved den lidt skrabede "Continental Breakfast".Venligt personale på parkeringspladsen . Vi blev to nætter mere end vi.havde booket på Booking.com og havde mungtligt fået.at vide at.det var til samme pris ,men en ny mand i receptionen ved udtjekning var af en anden mening .Først efter en længere diskusion , fik vi det til den oprindelige pris ....
For dyrt i forhold til standard Restaurering!
Great location, and what a wonderful room!
I met my best friend in New Orleans for a long weekend, and staying at the Cornstalk was perfect. The room was gorgeous, the staff helpful, the courtyard a perfect oasis to sit and eat take-out lunch, the beds super comfy. It is in the thick of everything, without being right on Bourbon Street, which would have been way too crazy. Royal Street is extraordinary, with tons of gorgeous antique shops and good restaurants. Most importantly - there was a coffee shop just down the block from Cornstalk, and the Verdi Marte is only about four blocks away, where you'll get the best sandwiches in New Orleans. This place was utterly delightful. They don't make it clear on the website that there is no elevator, and that even to get to the ground floor, there is a huge staircase - and this is the only access. The day we were checking out, an elder couple was attempting to check in, but the wife - who used a walker - couldn't begin to make it up the stairs to the ground floor, let alone the 2nd floor room they'd booked. This was a Saturday night, and I imagine they had a terrible time finding another room - and they'd obviously flown in from somewhere far away. This is something that should be made crystal clear to anyone who books a room.
