We have stayed at the St. Pierre in the past and will happily stay there again. We love how rustic it is; it is, after all, one of the oldest buildings in the Quarter. The rooms are fairly small and the sink dripped, but we didn't mind. The location is just perfect--close to everything else in the Quarter yet in a quiet and residential neighborhood. The staff are always helpful and cheerful. We love staying at this hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Saint Pierre

Nasty

from rkoonce
My wife and I moved here because of the horrible room we got at the sister property, the Andrew Jackson Hotel on Royal. Due to our dissatisfaction with the room at the AJ, they gave us a "suite" which was a small apartment adjacent to the parking lot across the street from the main hotel. To say this place is a dump is an understatement! Since the city was booked due to a convention, we were resigned to stay here, in spite of the general run-down condition of the property. The bathroom was the best of the rooms they showed us, complete with peeling paint and odd, lumpy floors. The room has potential, but it *really* needs work The furniture would be rejected by the Salvation Army resale store with sagging drawers and scratched tops. As soon as we got there, we started trying to find something better, and when my wife found spots of blood on the bedspread, that was it! We were lucky enough to find a room at the Pelham Hotel downtown a block off Canal. Don't waste your time with the St. Pierre. It's worth nowhere near what they're asking for it. It should be used as a homeless shelter.

Perfect location and nice rooms in the French Quarter

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I spent a week in New Orleans for a 'second' honeymoon. We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel St. Pierre. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Rooms were neat and clean. Pool and courtyards were relaxing (nice after a long day walking around the French Quarter). Don't expect a chain hotel with cookie cutter rooms, this is an historic inn. We give the hotel high marks.

French Quarter charm and location are just fine for us!

from robsmeed
My wife and I had a nice room and pleasant time at Hotel St. Pierre in September '04. This is a historic National Register hotel so we did not expect the generic "chain" hotel experience. The courtyards and collection of buildings is charming, well kept. Staff was ready to help us. We give our stay two thumbs up! Liz and Rob

Friendly staff, historic hotel and prime location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We enjoyed a fun long weekend at this hotel. We found the staff to be very helpful and interested in making us feel at home. The hotel is located in the French Quarter, just steps from the local restuarants and shopping we love to do. It looks like a lot of improvements and work has been put into this hotel. Rooms were clean and tidy. We will be back, soon.

Just Fine for the Price

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Hotel St. Pierre about 2 months ago, and I thought that my room was totally acceptable considering what I paid for it. I got the cheapest room they had for $59 a night. It was quite small (cut out of the sloping roof of the attic level), but the staff warned me of that before I made my reservation. The room and bathroom were both perfectly clean. The window unit AC did take a little while to cool the room off, but once it did the room was quite comfortable, even in the summer heat. I had no problems with the staff, and found them to be friendly. Be aware that there is no guaranteed parking. I found a space in the hotel's small free parking lot, but my boyfriend had to park a few blocks away. I am a former New Orleans resident, and I can attest that the location of the hotel is fine. It is within the French Quarter a block or two from Rampart. As long as you remain on the French Quarter side of Rampart and do not cross over into the Treme neighborhood (which is very dangerous!), it is pretty safe to walk at any time. I did not feel uncomfortable walking (with my boyfriend, however) to and from the hotel in the wee hours of the morning. Overall, I thought the price was great for a hotel in the quarter, and although I would have felt dissatisfied had I paid more for the room, at that rate I'd definitely return for another stay.

s Charm

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently got back from my stay at Hotel St. Pierre, 8/22/04. I had read the reviews after I booked the hotel and was absolutely horrified. I wanted to cancel my reservations but we decided to go ahead and stay there and see for ourselves. I have been to New Orleans before and love everything about it, so I really knew what to expect when they said "New Orleans Charm". The location was GREAT!!!! It is not in a dangerous section of town. We walked everywhere. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The parking is limited but they made room for us. The room was large and our window was directly on the road, which I did not mind because I love looking out and watching people walk by. It is not the nicest and fanciest hotel in New Orleans, but if you want that you can find it. I wanted quaint and cozy with a New Orleans feel and that was what I got. It was definitely worth the money and I will stay there again.

What a dump!!!

from Callie16
What a DUMP!!! I have stayed in some "not so good" hotels in my time but never one so bad that I had to ask for clean sheets for my bed the day we checked in. On top of that, they didn't send someone to change them but just left some outside my door, knocked and ran off down the stairs before I even got a look at them. The ones they left weren't any better and had holes. Now, I understand that it's an old hotel and can endure rustic charm, but that's no excuse for filthy, worn out sheets with holes. On top of that our room was as small as and as dirty as an attic corner. We couldn't stand up on one side of our room because of the sloping ceiling. The whole room was only about 10x10. With a bed in there and the sloping ceiling there was only about a 2x3 foor area that we could stand in. The bathroom was so gross I brushed my teeth with my eyes closed and showered with shoes on. I will never stay there again.

French Quarter fun

from cammie810
We just got back from a stay at the St. Pierre. We had a large room with a king size bed. While the rooms were in need of updating everything was clean. Our friends had a smaller room with two doubles. Again clean but run down. The courtyards are great with two pools. The free continental breakfast is open 7-11am and has coffee, juice, cereal, donuts, biscuits, bagels, muffins, and fruit. Our room was right above the front door of the hotel and there was noise all night. Our friends in the courtyard heard nothing until the last night when there were people partying out there until 3am. The location two blocks from Bourbon is terrific. Plus you cant beat the price. I would definately recommend it if you are looking for something inexpensive and unique.

s not THAT bad!

from stormycat9
This place is a fine deal for the money. I have stayed there twice and I will stay there again. The courtyards are cute, they have hot coffee in the breakfast room all day, they have some free parking, and it is within walking distance to everything in the French Quarter. The pool area's a great for hanging out and having a nice cold beer. I found the staff to be very nice. Our A/C worked just fine and are room was fairly clean.

Okay, so it is a little junky. The mattresses are horrible! The wall outside the lobby has a plauqe stating that the structure is on the National Register of Historic Places...."places" should be change "mattresses".

If you are the type who needs all of the mod cons or if you spend the majority of your time on vacation sitting in your hotel room, this is not the place for you.

Hell, this is the French Quarter! Stuff is supposed to be old and rickitty! Hotel St. Pierre actually looks like it belongsunlike some of the fancy places along the west edge!

Enjoyed Our Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed in the St. Pierre for a second time this year and we were pleased once again.

We found the staff to be friendly and courteous. Although, they could have been a little more helpful with a restaurant recommendation. No big deal though, we found some great ones on our own.

We love the old world character of the place. This hotel is supposedly one of the oldest in the French Quarter. It is very cute and quaint. If you are expecting a pristine, modern hotel, this one is not for you!!
The double rooms are very small with a definite European feel. I'm not sure what the larger rooms look like. We loved the courtyard area with the pool. It served as a great meeting spot for us and our travel mates.

The rooms were clean although the carpet could definitely have used a shampoo. It was sticky in some spots. Not sure whether all the rooms are this way, but reading other reviews, it sounds like a trend. I am sure a lot of alcohol gets spilled on the carpet from drunk guests.
Maybe tile would be easier to keep clean? Just a suggestion for St.
Pierre mgmt.

We will definitely stay here again, as we feel it is a great hotel for the price. We will bring thongs/flip-flops for walking around though :).

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

Family attractions My family and I think New Orleans is a great family vacation. The Audobon Aquarium and Zoo are world class, there is a great children museum and Madi Gras museum and the streets themselves offer an endless array of entertainment. My kids -- age 5 and 7 -- were never bored.

Maybe you're worried While planning the trip to New Orleans for 12 girls ages 25-34 a theme that came up a lot was worry about personal safety. I checked out a lot of places and it seemed like people were saying it was pretty safe. The advice I got a lot was that it was no less safe than any other big city. After the trip, I have to say that I agree. Don't walk alone at night or go places where there aren't a lot of people. Use your common sense.

Great Visit to the Big Easy! French Quarter is great!
