This museum is a MUST SEE for everyone. I hesitate to say "visitors of New Orleans" because I met a lot of native folks in the city who had never visited this house for themselves. The history is so relevant and important for everyone to hear, especially in today's global climate. THANK YOU Kim for the amazing tour!
The rooms are spacious and stylish. The location in the French Quarter is wonderful. Right in between Bourbon and Royal. Parking is a little atrocious in price. They give you a complimentary drink ticket upon check in but it seems a handful of hotels do this so not a new gimmick. The breakfast is nice and the staff are friendly.
The Pontchartrain Hotel was such a wonderful experience! It's placed right along the St. Charles trolley line, surrounded by beautiful homes and just a short ride from the Audubon Zoo and Park. The building itself is gorgeous, with both traditional New Orleans charm and modern upgrades in all the rooms. We stayed in the Thalia Family Suite, which was perfect for our us and our kids! The room was beautiful and exceptionally clean. But honestly, the best part of our stay was the staff! They were so friendly and welcoming! They even learned the names of our kids and went out of their way to be kind and helpful to our family. My husband and I plan to return next year and wouldn't want to stay anywhere but the Pontchartrain!
Wonderful hotel - staff was very friendly and helpful with food recommendations. Room was clean and nice size! Very happy with this stay and it's within walking distance of the French Quarter! Would stay here again! No breakfast or food offered here. Only coffee/tea and some fruit in the morning.
The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
VERY SMALL ROOMS! The hotel was nice but the rooms were so tiny for the price. I had a king bed room and two people can’t walk around the room at the same time! Also valet was extremely slow! It took 20-30 minutes each time I needed my car!! For $46 a day I would expect quicker service! But overall a nice place and the restaurants inside the hotel are excellent.
