We stayed at the Blake for the 1D concert. It is a nice hotel very central to everything, just a ten minute walk to the Superdome.
Very nice rooms, clean, quiet and very comfortable. Check in was quick.
The only issue we had was valet parking. We knew in advance it was valet parking, so we decided to use it. When we got to the hotel there was nowhere to park to unload our luggage . The front of the hotel had five cars parked, no valet to be seen. The lady at the desk informed us that we would have to wait 20 mins for the parking, the cars out front were in line to be parked and there was no valet to do so at that time.
I "yelped" parking on my phone and found an outside lot two blocks down. It was $18 for 24 hrs. We took a chance and it paid off. The car was safe all night and we saved a bunch of money.
That was the only negative thing about the hotel. Otherwise it was perfect.
We arrived in New Orleans and from the time that we set foot at the Lafayette Hotel we were treated like royalty. They were very accommodating, helping us with valet parking and getting a luggage cart for us, loading it and delivering and unloading in our room, getting ice for us, more towels....anything we needed. The staff was awesome and helped us with anything we asked for. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, staff and good customer service. We will always choose to stay at the Lafayette Hotel when visiting New Orleans. They made our experience great!!!
This hotel is located within a few minutes walking distance to the French Quarter, perhaps a five minute walk at best. The St. Charles trolley runs right in front of it, this trolley is what takes you into the Garden District/Magazine area. I cannot express how professional the staff was, friendly...helpful and just pleasant to be around. The lobby is beautiful and my room is by far one of the cleanest, nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. I even had a walk in modern shower that made me feel like I was in a fancy resort. Room for everything, plenty of lighting and outlets. Bed was newer and very plush and comfortable. Even the room service gets five stars! The concierge helped me book several tours, he was great! I liked that it was not near the chaos of Bourbon street, I slept peacefully every night with little to no noise issues. This is place is just a rare gem, will stay here every time I visit New Orleans.
We drove in from the Angola Prison, and hit a rain storm this California Girl could not believe. With my Washington State bff by my side telling me I was doing great as the vehicle hydroplaned, all I could think about was a strong drink upon arrival! Well upon arrival we were met by wonderful staff, three free drink (per night) coupons and a free dinner & breakfast buffet! The room was delightful and we had a great view of the bridge at the waterfront. We chatted with many guests who all agreed with us. This hotel is on the trolley line, within walking distance to Bourbon Street, but don't head straight to the French Quarter - - Check out Hobknobbers for a drink made by Dustin (he is a drink "chef" - bloody mary's were to die for), and Mother's for authentic creole cuisine.
My wife and I stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. If you're looking for a hotel like a Hilton, Hyatt, or Marriott this is not it. We try to avoid those types if we can because they all seem alike and have no personality. We try to stay at B & B's and the Q & C is as close as a hotel can come. It has a rustic feel with exposed bricks on the walls. The rooms are different sizes and shapes. The bathrooms reminded us of the ones we had in France last year. The Q & C has a feel when you enter it of walking into a small hotel in England with a bar close to the check-in desk. It's very popular for the after work crowd. The rooms have some nice touches like a mirror in the bathroom that tilts, 32" flat screen TVs, extravagant linens according to my wife. These comments need to tempered by the fact the hotel has just gone through a complete renovation and there are things that they are catching up with that need to be fixed. We had to change rooms because the AC wasn't working right. We happened to talk to a maintenance man who explained that some of the valves had not been turned on before the ceiling was restored. There were little things like a screw missing in a vent in the ceiling and a light bulb that needed replacing. We had a chance to talk to the owner one night while sitting around the bar and he told us they have been working to get everything in order. We're in our 60's so we tend to cut a little slack but we like the place and will stay again.
Great location. We were easily able to walk to French Quarter, WWII Museum, Lafayette Square, French Market... No transportation required! Kind and helpful staff. Pierre, the Concierge arranged great City Tour and Swamp Tour. He set us up to totally experience the Crescent City for the first time. We wanted a hotel that was historic, quiet and full of character. Le Pavillion was the perfect choice!
