A Splendid Place to Lodge

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 30, 2008

Le Pavillon Hotel sits on land which once comprised a plantation. After much haggling over property rights, the land was sold and the Hotel Denechaud was erected in 1907. It is said to have been the finest hotel in the South, with the first hydraulic elevators ever to be installed in New Orleans.

The hotel changed hands in 1970 and a restoration was completed, adding crystal chandeliers from Czechoslovakia, marble floors from around the world, marble railings from the Grand Hotel in Paris and soaring columns and graceful statues from Italy. Proclaimed the "Belle of New Orleans," it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.

A dapper doorman clothed in top hat and tails meets guests at the entrance and is more than happy to hail a taxi for you. Located a few blocks from the French Quarter, it is an easy walk to shops and restaurants, though.

Le Pavillon, dripping with gilt and crystal is decorated in the French style. The spacious lobby and restaurant ooze elegance (pics #3-4)! Our guest room (pic #2) amenties were extra pillows, cable tv, a telephone in the bedroom and in the bathroom, glass-enclosed bathtub/shower combo, hair dryer, oversized make up mirror, hand and body lotion, shower gel, shampoo, scented soap, cotton balls, iron and ironing board.

Turn down service brought two bottled waters and peanut butter jam cookies each night to the room. The traditional 10pm snack set up in the lobby treated us to assorted breads and peanut butter--both creamy and crunchy--with assorted jellies (pic #5). What a nice way to say "Goodnight, sleep tight!"

Nice Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 20, 2007

This is a nice hotel, albeit a little quiet. It's on Poydras, just down the street from one of my all time favorite New Orleans restaurants - Mother's. It's about a six block walk to the French Quarter and four or five blocks to Harrah's. All in all not a bad location, but at 2:00 a.m. was wishing it was just a little closer!

They have a great tradition of serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with milk and cocoa every night from 10:00 til midnight. Unfortunately I was never at the hotel in time to enjoy it, but for those already in for the night and needing a midnight snack, it's a great treat!

Unique Quality: The pool here is great. It's on the roof so you get to look out onto the city. The water was clean when I was there but it did look like some algae was building up on the sides, so a cleaning was probably due.

We ordered Bloody Marys by the pool, and I have to say it was probably the best I've ever had - very spicy, lots of horseradish and red pepper!!

The lobby has huge crystal chandeliers and it is decorated with antiques. The rooms were a decent size, and had mini-bars.

Directions: Downtown, just a few blocks from the French Quarter

I've stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions from 1991 through 2002 or so. It's ideally located on Poydras Street, close to downtown businesses (used to be clients of mine) like Shell Oil, Amoco (no longer there), Chevron, etc. Also, walking distance to the French Quarter and Canal and Bourbon Streets. We often got rooms for $89 a night in an historic New Orleans hotel, with all the amenities. The restaurant is first-class (try the Gumbo), and it's well-maintained. Excellent service and room service as well. The rooms are a bit small, but it's an old hotel, after all. That being said, it has all the amenities. I love the carpeting, paintings in the halls, etc. I seem to recall a ceiling with a circular indentation that had a wonderful painting in it. Lovely ambience.
When you arrive, a tall doorman in a white jacket with long tails opens the door of your taxi
or car and greets you. The second and subsequent visits, he always remembered me and said that it was nice to see me again. He was there every time during the years I was going fairly often. I could just picture his predecessor greeting people the same way back in the day when horse-drawn carriages or Model T or A cars drove up. It just adds to
the historic novelty of the place.

Unique Quality: They have this lovely, quaint tradition of serving PB&J sandwiches and hot chocolate (or coffee, tea, etc.) at 9:00 or 9:30 every evening. White-jacketed servers ask for your choice of bread and jam (grape and strawberry, at least, I don't remember if there are more). It's very New Orleans, and very nice.
If you drive a car here, the valets in long-tailed coats are awesome. Or if you arrive in a cab. Excellent service.

Directions: On Poydras, in the middle of downtown, close to everything.

It's Beautiful!!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 16, 2005

Great service! The best I've seen. The rooms are very clean and the staff is wonderful. I stayed here the first time I went to New Orleans. It was a great experience. The hotel is stunningly beautiful. Alittle expensive, but, worth every penny.

Unique Quality: The rooftop pool and jacuzzi is beautiful. The best time to go out is at night where you can see the skyline as you sip on a glass of champayne. Very romantic!

Directions: Downtown

this is a great hotel to stay in. its within walking distance of the french quarter, but far enough away from it to avoid hearing the drunken crowds from your room! they serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the hotel lobby at night, which is nice. the staff members are all sweet and helpful!

Unique Quality: pb&j sandwiches

Romance sans Bourbon Street

by written on April 24, 2003

My husband & I wanted romance & a great location. We wanted 2 see much more than Bourbon Street & the Aquarium. Le Pavillon Hotel, with its Internet rates, was TERRIFIC. Statues, lobby chandeliers & art pieces added atmosphere, & we enjoyed their free pre-dinner snacks (they call it a milk and sandwich cocktail hour). Easy 15 min walk 2 French Quarter; sometimes we rode the streetcar 2 rest our feet. Central location to D-Day Museum & Garden District by streetcar.

Unique Quality: beautiful surroundings
great Internet rates available
coffee/snack shop one block toward river
staff don't treat you like an Internet deviant

Directions: Central Business District of New Orleans
block up from trolley line

Downtown Splendor

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2003

There were lots of big name hotels in the downtown area - I stayed at one not too far from the convention area called Le Pavillon. It was quite comfortable and had an older more ornate appearance to it. It cost me about US $170/night including all taxes.

Directions: Downtown New Orleans

This trip we stayed at a La...

by written on August 24, 2002

This trip we stayed at a La Quinta on the way to the airport and rented a car. We planned on doing things outside of downtown, and it was worth it. However..I most recommend the Hotel La Pavillion, it is a beautiful old hotel ( and less expensive than the other major hotels, at that time). This hotel has even been featured on the travel channel.
In 1996 the price was $135/night, this was part of a conference package, I would think you could do much better though.
