In the New Orleans Vieux Carré, or French Quarter, French and Spanish influences mingle over cobblestone streets, and Hotel St. Pierre is at the heart of it all. This boutique bed-and-breakfast, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, strikes an elegant profile on sought-after Burgundy Street. A yellow facade with robin’s-egg-blue shutters gives way to beautiful, airy interiors within this Creole cottage-style gem. The charming rooms here pair 18th-century charm with 21st-century comfort. Expect period furnishings and plenty of modern touches. You’ll also have your choice between one king-sized or two queen beds. New Orleans is a dining-and-drinking mecca, where the options are plentiful, the seafood is fresh and the libations are available to go. So, once you’ve settled into your contemporary abode, set out for another street that might ring a bell: Bourbon. Here, grab your Tropical Isle Hand Grenade cocktail in a yard cup, sing a karaoke song or two, and take a stroll past all the double-gallery homes. Your Hotel St. Pierre abode will give you the perfect address for a Big Easy stay to remember—if you can remember it, that is.
In the Area
Located on Burgundy Street, the hotel is right in the heart of all the things the beautiful French Quarter is known for. You can eat your way through the city’s gumbo, beignets and po’ boys; pick out a mask for wherever you’ll end up celebrating Mardi Gras; cruise on the Mississippi; and just wander the streets admiring the elegant architecture. Bourbon Street’s nearby, if you’d like to knock back a couple of drinks, and the jazz clubs of Frenchman Street invite you to dance all night. You can also do some exploring outside your neighborhood – it’s worth seeing the Victorian homes in the Garden District and wandering through the acres of Audubon Park’s greenery.
How to Get There
This hotel is old but it has a lot of history. The staff was super nice, the rooms even though the hotel is old, the rooms were clean. The hotel is bit bit away from Bourbon Street but it is nice because it is not too loud. St. Pierre is about 4 to 5 blocks from Bourbon. You have free continental breakfast, which is great because it is more than just toast and bagels.
I loved this place! The staff was the friendliest and most helpful. Incredibly polite. Loved the authenticity of the building. Clean and well maintained without losing the integrity of the establishment! Highly recommend for the sake of experience!
Hotel entrance and welcome was phenomenal until reaching the rooms. At first glance the carpeting is the first to stand out. It was as old as the building and appeared as if it hadn't been cleaned since the hotel was opened. The furniture was very old and not well kept, as well with the absence of a room phone. The room was extremely small and did not allow enough access to anything, and was listed as spacious enough for 4 adults. The room was extremely over priced to the living space provided and the valet parking was more of a wait than self parking at a separate location.
When my mom and I first checked in the company I reserved through booked a king suite. At first there was nothing available, but while my mom and I did not want this to ruin our vacation we went to park our car the hotel called and was able to move another couple from a double suite to the king and us to the double. I was very happy with the fast service. The hotel is made up of beautiful cottage style rooms for the most part. I will definitely stay there again!
It's tucked away in the upper right-hand corner of the Quarter. So close to everything, but it feels miles away. So quiet and beautiful. Hotel St. Pierre is one of only two buildings left in the French Quarter that were built
