Great place! I liked the rooms and the court yard. The breakfast was a life saver.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Place D armes Hotel

A great little place

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great little hotel in a terrific Vieux Carre location. A NO courtyard hotel experience - very pleasant. Rooms spacious, housekeeping average. Used parking garage - no problems. Only negatives -- the guest towels were more than a little rough and scratchy and the foam bed pillows of a low quality. Complimentary breakfast lacking protein -- a slice of cheese or a cup of yogurt would have been nice. Sticky buns are not the best way to start the day. If you need a bit of protein try Le Madeleine just down the street -- but get there before 8:50 a.m. or you will wait until 10 a.m. before breakfast comes to the table.

A wonderful stay

from jRudolph
My wife and I stayed here for three nights, March 12th-15th 2004. We stayed here a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. This past stay was great, Booked an interior windowless room over the internet for $99.00 a night. A great deal in the land of the $180. + room town. We booked a room with 2 double beds vs. 1 King bed(same price), the king rooms are somewhat smaller. Our room was clean, spatious, good showers, and even being next to the elevator we did not hear anything. If a room with no windows sounds bad, rethink, that 3pm nap you need is great with no light. The front desk staff was great, very helpfull and accommodating,was able to get us in our room at noon,instead of 3pm,a big help. Love this place.

Beautiful Hotel and Fabulous Location

from jhiggin72
We were there for two nights the weekend after Mardi Gras. When we first arrived with was after Midnight on Saturday we were greeted by Tyra in the parking garage. Wonderful lady and she welcomed us graciously. Check-in was smooth with a very nice lady who very kindly waived the parking fee for Sunday since it was my birthday celebration.
I'm sorry to say I forgot her name maybe Sonia. Our room door was not really designed to prevent noise from coming through. :) That wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't in a high traffic area and located right next to (10 ft from) a construction area. This ended up being a problem Monday morning. We spoke with the manager about it and he was responsive to our issues. He made us feel our patronage was important and even provided a 50% credit back on the cost of the room for Monday night. I will definitely stay here when I return next. He even assures me that they have new more plush towels coming in the near future and will look into weatherstripping the doors in that area for sound purposes. :) Service is everything to me and I can forgive just about any transgression if I believe you are trying. I hope the next time I stay with Place D'Armes I will be giving it an EXCELLENT rating overall but the service was PHENOMENAL, the hotel beautiful, the location was perfect, and eveything was immaculately clean.

A great little hotel in the French Quarter

from Elitefreak
Just returned from a 3 night stay and the place has a great location.
One block from Jackson Square and Cafe Du Monde, and about two blocks past the "nightlife" part of Bourbon Street. My room was large with a separate sitting area with large sofa and granite coffee table. They are still finishins some renovations in the lobby, but nothing to worry about. They offer a nice continental breakfast each AM. My only gripe is the charges for phone usage. I would definitely stay there again.

perfect romantic getaway

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband booked a room here for a romantic getaway. We live merely an hour away but had to come to New Orleans for a Bachelor/Bachelorette party on Saturday night. I was reluctant to rent a hotel b/c we live so close but my husband insisted that it would be worth it. HE WAS RIGHT!!!! The hotel was the most romantic hotel that I have ever stayed in. I would definetly recommend staying here to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.

Great Location, Great Staff, definately recommended!

from gatorcard83
We stayed here most recently this fall and have stayed here probably 6 or 7 times now visiting New Orleans. In my opinion it is the best hotel to really get the feel of New Orleans. Forget the chains, if you're going to come pony up a little more money and get the true New Orleans feel. The best aspect of this hotel is the location, it is a block away from Jackson Square. It is within very easy walking distance (couple minutes) to Bourbon Street, Royal Street, river, Cafe du Monde, etc.
The staff is very courteous and will do anything to make your stay better. We always have requested a room near the quiet courtyard that not many know about and even if we are paying standard rate we always get it. The courtyard and pool areas are very relaxing and easy to spend hours in. The rooms themselves for the most part of large, recently renovated, and some have balconies. The free breakfast has some basic stuff and isn't great if you are starving, but for a lot it will do. The only bad thing about this hotel (nothing really they can do either) is that some of the rooms have no windows and that as of October there was some construction going on. However it will make the place that much nicer and while I was there they only worked from around 9 till 5 or 6 (by the time we were back from the day's activities they were already gone). Plus if you go in an off time don't make a reservation and go to the NO visitor center in Jackson Square and you can get rates for the hotel for as low as $50. Overall though, it's a great hotel and if you want a true New Orleans experience and great location to practically anything, this is a great hotel to stay at. We will continue to stay here for years to come!

Reeked of tobacco... but great location

from EllenA720
We arrived during a busy "event" period and tho reservation made well in advance and request made for non-smoking--we got a big beautiful room that reeked of old tobacco. The windows did not open and the air-conditioning and ceiling fan did nothing to alleviate the air quality--Truly disgusting---the smoke was evident on our clothing for 2 days! My advise: If you get a non-restricted room be sure there's a working window. Great location and price was right---

Romantic, Great Location, Good Price

from A TripAdvisor Member
Today is Saturday November 8th, my husband & I just returned from a 5 day stay at the Place d' Armes & LET ME TELL YOU WE HAD A FABULOUS EXPERIENCE!!! The staff was wonderfuL!! We had a courtyard 'suite' the first nite and it was SO BIG we opted for a smaller room >w/no windows but not biggie< and they dropped our rate to $69 bucks a nite!!! We were there for my b-day which is tomorrow...but after reading the reviews both good & bad...I would have to say for the $$ & the location this HOTEL is first rate. The continental breakfast is perfect >especially if you stay out all nite drinkin' on Bourbon St. WHO wants a big breakfast?!!< lol The whole staff there deserves a huge THANKS from us for making our stay in N'awlins trouble free & RELAXING. The pics on the web site do not do the COURTYARD JUSTICE...sat there many hours relaxing...WE RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE GOING TO NO looking for a cheap, clean, and centrally located hotel. Don't FORGET to tip your maids!! Thanks Place d'Armes WE'LL BE BACK :)

Best Long Weekend Ever

from kraspa
Just returned from a long weekend stay at the Place d'Armes Hotel. We stayed in rooms 228 & 229 which had a street balcony. The room had a king bed and a small sitting area. The room looks like it was recently re-done and was very clean. The balcony was extremely large with table and chairs and room for more. The cont. breakfast was good. The courtyard is beautiful with tables and chairs to sit and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon drink/smoke. The recpetionists were always very pleasant/helpful and we ate some of our best meals at the resturants that they recommended. The location is the best - 2 streets from all the action in every direction!

Extremely Impressed!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've been to new Orleans several times and actually had reservations elsewhere initially. However, shorty after they were made we were informed that that Hotel woudl be closing for major remodeling. After looking around online I found the Place D'Armes and read the reviews.
To make a long story short, I am another customer who wont be staying anywhere else. We got exactly the type of room we wanted (Balcony overlookng the courtyard), the room was spotless, the maids were always respectful of the "do not disturb" sign - we were never bothered once in teheweek that we were there. Check in was quick and check out was even quicker. The location was supurb. After reading the reviews on here I was expecting to enjoy my stay. aboslutely LOVED my stay (and yes, we were there during construction, also). One downside = they 13% room tax was a bummer. Definately give this place a try! If you don't like it I'll send you the money for a hurricane!

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

Great Little Secret No matter your age or what your interest you must go to 2 shops : The Little Toy Shop (513 St Ann Street) and also the Tabassco Store both are located on St. Ann right up the street from the hotel.

Centrally located From our balcony we could see the St. Louis Cathedral. We were steps away from art galleries, food, food, food, fun, music, and history. The lush courtyard was wonderful to just sit and read and relax. The hotel had very good energy and we felt very much at home.
