                Excellent service include help from the concierge re: restaurants as well as friendly and efficient front desk, easy 10min walk to Bourbon St and very clean rooms, checked luggage

                Because the hotel is historical, the rooms were slightly smaller than the present-day standard, but it's well worth it for the experience.

                I liked the cozy feeling in this small, full-service hotel. The bar was friendly and comfortable. The beds were just right. The staff was helpful and friendly.

                There was just one elevator working. We ended up walking up and down three flights. We didn't find the main dining room for dinner up to par.

                One of the finest places I have ever stayed. Beautiful. Great location, best staff, very nice room. I would love to stay there again.

                I used the mini-fridge, moving out their stuff so I could put in mine. The maid put their stuff back in the next day, but everything I moved appeared on my bill at checkout. They removed it without question, but it made me mad at the time. Great hotel.

                cramped room, overpriced. At one time would be elegant, butold outdated. Caters to the old crowd over 70-80s group.

                Small room for the money. Overpriced.

                Very friendly staff. Very helpful conciere/front desk. Nice pool area. Good location for St. Charles trolly/warehouse/near F. Q. would definitly return except for the one complaint lodged below. Thank you for helping us to have a great first visit to nola

                The maid service every morning entailed many doors being open and shut in the am. Although they were not slamming them, it was quit loud and not conducive to sleeping in, especially when waking the nearby infant. Maybe a later start time or easing the doors shut.

                We loved this grand historic hotel! The opulent lobby & other rooms were a delight to the eyes! The rooftop pool and lounging area were beautiful!The staff were very friendly, helpful & welcoming.

                It was close enough to the French Quarter to walk there but you wouldn't feel comfortable walking back from the restaurants in the evening as you passed through an area without a lot of foot traffic. The windows in the room would not open.

                The people who work at Le Pavillon are very nice and friendly. They go out of their way to help. The hotel is beautiful and the location is quiet but close to all the attractions.

                There was nothing I did not like at Le Pavillion.

                I loved the romantic intimate feel of the design and the room. It is a very beautiful hotel.

                I booked this hotel because I wanted something romantic for my anniversary. Any other time I probably would not book something so fancy just because I felt out of place and like I was going to break something or mess something up.

                I liked the atmosphere, the pool and spa on top, and the peanut butter served at 11pm at night.

                The sheets were very thin. I sleep at home on a high quality mattress with high thread content on the Egyptian sheets. That was not my experience at Le Pavilion Hotel.

                This was a true hotel in the actual historic meaning of the word - not just a modern and expensive place to sleep. Polite bellmen, professional uniforms, fantastic guest service. Beautiful historic building with a lot of character, well-maintained, excellent staff, great location to walk anywhere of interest in N.O. (French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Canal Street, Cafe Du Mond {a little longer walk but fun}, wwii museum, etc) We parked our car Thursday and didn't have to start the engine until Sunday when we left. This was the best experience I have ever had staying in a hotel and my wife and I are planning to return. Shane, the shift manager at the desk, was very, very attentive and helpful. The rooftop pool and hot tub were great with an awesome city view. Our room was large, absolutely beautiful, and ornate (very romantic). I see absolutely no reason whatsoever to ever stay anywhere else in N.O. when I already experienced the best hotel available. If you are looking for a great hotel, definitely book the La Pavillion and you will not regret it at all! As a side note, we were on the second day of our cruise (from the N.O. port) and in Costa Maya when the credit card I had on file with the ship was declined due to ‘pending’ charges that the bank wouldn’t cancel (we had used it to reserve the hotel but paid with another card). We couldn’t do anything on the ship (excursions, drinks, etc) because of this and Visa (their Indian call center) was absolutely apathetic and confrontational about resolving a total non-issue that was completely in their power to correct. In frustration, I called the hotel from the ship and spoke with Jennifer in accounting. She contacted Visa for me and got the issue resolved in 15 minutes so we could continue enjoying our vacation! My wife and I have nothing but great things to say about this fantastic hotel!

                Confortable room, excellent buffet for breakfast, nice staff.

                The valet parking is too expensive ($35 + tax = $39 per night) !

                Wish I had a tub; on the hotel description it didn't say I wouldn't have one.
