How to Get There
We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at the Renaissance Pere Marquette. Check in was smooth and we were upgraded to a bigger room without having asked for one. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. The hotel is conveniently located - close enough to the French Quarter (a 10 to 15 minute walk to the heart of the French Quarter or $7 Uber ride) but away enough from the noise of Bourbon Street. The $38 a night valet parking excludes tax and isn’t ideal but we factored this amount into the overall price when making the booking. There is a parking garage a block down on the corner of Common and Roosevelt that charges $20 per night if you want a cheaper alternative. All of the staff were very friendly, but Glenn, the porter/doorman, deserves a special mention. He greeted us warmly and made us feel so welcome every time we returned to the hotel. Our daughters just loved him and hugged him each day! We love Renaissance hotels and this one certainly lived up to our expectations.
Room was very nice, clean and had a great view of the city. Friendly staff.
We dined in the restaurant "Tackle Box" friendly staff and great food and drinks. definitely recommend. Highly recommend the charred-broil oysters.
When we checked in to this hotel the welcome was spectacular. I must say the staff here was superb at every step of the way. I really loved my stay here in that regard. It was a truly fantastic being greeted as an Ambassador guest with all the stated benefits and extra New Orleans facts. Even after checking in we got a cool cocktail because there were coktails being made in the lobby!
The ride up the elevator was fine, and then came the room. It was just a room, nothing really nice, a fake chandelier on the wall, awkward layout, nothing fancy, pretty bad bathroom, and a lack of fine furniture. Honestly the best parts were the oversized TV and the great view of New Orleans. Really the view was fantastic! I loved it, and the windows were huge...just the room wasn't a room you wanted to spend time in. It was too barren feeling.
Then came my hopes for an awesome lounge. Alas, there was no awesome lounge. There was a VIP room that felt like a Delta hotel Platinum pantry. There was some pretty awesome stuff in there including bubly and cool New Orleans chips, but they really need to both make some more room, and then also get themselves a better coffee machine. The thing in there was no excuse for a coffee machine.
The location was good, it's so close to the French quarter - it's solid. I'd stay here again, but it's not my top choice...I really wish the rooms were nicer.
