Exactly what a single business traveler needs -- a small but chic and comfortable room, all the basic conveniences taken care of and a very helpful and friendly staff. I'd definitely stay again, whether for a business trip or vacation.
I was a little concerned, looking at the map, that I was booking a hotel that would be too far away from the attractions I was most interested in seeing. This hotel is one block from St. Charles Avenue (and the streetcar). It is just a few blocks from the Morial Convention Center, the French Quarter, Riverwalk, and Harrah's Casino. The Superdome was also within walking distance. There are several restaurants and nightclubs within two blocks, and a mini market just down the street. The staff was SO nice. Very friendly and helpful. Great representation of New Orleans hospitality. The hotel was very quiet (my room faced Poydras street so you could hear traffic sounds, but nothing awful). The only downside was there were two steps leading down into my bedroom and believe me after a night on the town, disoriented in a hotel room, some one is definitely going to trip! The room was clean, the mattress could have been a little softer, but my husband loved it, so there you go. I will stay again. Had a great experience.
I stayed in the new building and enjoyed every aspect of it. Everyone from the valet to the front desk was trained well and made me feel welcome. A female Hispanic employee who was refilling the scrambled eggs at breakfast even smiled and wished me a good morning. I appreciated the service.
The original room we were booked for was very dark and had small windows as it is an old building. The staff were very helpful in locating a brighter room for me which was superb and the stay really made our trip after having stayed at the Marriot as well as an airbnb (which wasn't comfortable...and meant no sleep for me) earlier that week.
I planned an overnight stay at Le Pavillion. I had always wanted to stay at this hotel due to its iconic exterior. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and the professionalism of the staff. The little extras that the hotel offers, for example the pb a j bar, left a positive impression with me. Every staff member was personable, pleasant, and truly seemed to enjoy where the worked. The hotel was beautifully decorated. The rooms were cozy and clean. I truly had an amazing experience which far surpassed my expectations.
This was our first time in NOLA so we were going blindly and cautiously on reviews and suggestions. We picked Homewood Inn because there was not a lot of availability elsewhere. We were absolutely shocked at how nice and accommodating the staff was. The room was huge! Clean. Really pretty views of the city. The location couldn't have been better. It was pretty cold so we opted to take a taxi pretty frequently and it was never more than $7 to get downtown. We walked to the stadium no problems and if it was nicer we could have walked everywhere. The breakfast buffet was awesome and we happened to be there on a weeknight and the dinner buffet was really good too. The housekeeping was great. Super helpful and not annoying. The pool was nice. We will totally stay here again next time we visit. Aside from the bed not being as comfy as ours, I have nothing negative to say at all! Thanks!
