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
It was a pleasure meeting Carla Williams! She was pleasant and did a great job cleaning our room. Carla is professional and a great person. The hotel was quaint and in a good location, breakfast was good. The staff members were all friendly and professional
The front desk staff were so friendly, but I would not stay here again. There is no elevator, and no help with bags, so my husband hurt his back lugging our suitcases up and down the stairs. The room was small and we were stepping over each other and the edge of the bed constantly. While I don't expect spic-and-span in such an old, historic building in New Orleans, there is no excuse for dust being caked on the light fixture in the entry of our room, hair on the bathroom floor, and the landing outside our room not being vacuumed for the three days we were there (there was a hair scrunchie front and center for all three days and lots of crumbs). They serve delicious warm cookies with milk in the afternoons, but, unfortunately, the coffee table in the business lounge where we sat had the same cookie crumbs on it both days that we sat there. Our room was prepaid, but by the time we paid taxes and parking, it was almost $100 per day over what had already been paid. Location-wise, this hotel is a little farther from the heart of the Quarter than I like to be. Walking back at night, there are two blocks that are residential and fairly deserted, though it didn't feel unsafe.
Fantastic Hotel! Friendly and helpful staff. Located in the perfect area for all your tourism needs! Room was small but realistically your only sleeping and showering. They provide breakfast which is great! Our room was at one of the two pools and it felt like our own little paradise. Will be back for sure!
