TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Della Torre 1850 Ponte San Marco
Great value hotel in a sensational location - 2 minutes walk from Bourbon Street but far enough away to be quiet. There's a courtyard with a pool, a bar and restaurant (but no room service). Lovely old building with big rooms - mine had a balcony overlooking Dauphine Street.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Della Torre 1850 Ponte San Marco
This hotel was horrific!! As we checked in we were greeted by Gary, the world's rudest desk clerk! He had attitude with everyone, even if they were simply asking a question. We requested a non-smoking, garden view room with a balcony. We were given a smoking room with a view of another building's roof and no balcony. The room was dirty, the lamp was broken, you could not call out on the phone, and their was a gigantic mold spot on the ceiling in the bathroom. Needless to say the only good thing about the hotel was that after speaking with the General Manager we were allowed to checkout without being charged a dime. We then checked into the Sheraton and had a wonderful stay in New Orleans! Take my advice, stay at the Sheraton or The W.
I stayed at the Hotel St. Marie last year. The staff was very efficient. If there were any questions regarding cable, hairdryers, etc., we had wonderful service. It is a charming, beautifully decorated, and formal staff. I would stay there again, except each time I go, I like to stay at a different hotel. It is part of the New Orleans experience.
This hotel was so cozy with a great staff, minor drip problem from the air unit but other than that it was a great stay for the fourth of July weekend
I loved this place!
I was very nervous about finding a decent hotel in New Orleans since we were on a budget. After reading all the comments on this website about different hotels, I was even more nervous! I ended up choosing the Hotel St. Marie because it was only $59 per night and they also had a free parking deal going on (savings of $20!). The hotel is about 1/2 a block from Bourbon Street and the area was pretty quiet. I had no problems with valet parking. The staff was nice and I had no problems with my reservations either. I loved the little courtyard, it was cute and cozy. In the evenings the hotel resturant puts little tables out there with candles, white table cloths, etc. Very romantic! The swimming pool was average size, but who cares... you are in New Orleans! The rooms were cozy and those 'strange red lights' in the bathroom they were talking about in one review were heat lights for when you get out of the shower. The hotel was pretty quiet, but we were there during the week and the walls are kinda thin, so I can see how it might become loud if the hotel were full. There is a little convienience store right next to the hotel if you forget to pack something. This hotel has a great location! I will definately stay here again.
Great Location, But WATCH THE RATE
As with all this groups properties (St. Marie, Prince Conti and Place d'Armes) and others in New Orleans...BEAWARE that the prices/rates can change on a random basis, particularly during events!
Example - Mardi Gras Room Rate at St. Marie (reservation made 8 months in advance) was around $270 per night (full payment due around two months prior to event, non-refundable)....
Price checked one week prior to event via hotel website (Prince Conti) was $170.
Request from management to address this rate discreprency went without reply.
Amenities during some events are minimal for the price being paid...which is purely for location and little else.
A Nice Suprise
Absolutely Great! I used trip advisor before I reserved the room, and now I am returning to say just how right these individuals were when they posted comments about this hotel. It's CLEAN, CLOSE to everything, and the SERVICE could not have been any better, which is a rarity in the French Quarter. However, there is a $20.00 a day fee for parking. And trust me, you will not want to do ANY driving in the French Quarter. It's way to congested. Bring comfy shoes and enjoy your stay!
A charming hotel. I read some negative reviews prior to going there and was concerned, but my experience was very positive.
I have no complaints about this hotel! I thought the location was perfect, the staff was courteous, and the rooms were well kept and spacious. Only half a block from Bourbon St., made it ideal for those who wanted to stay near all the excitement. I would definitly stay here again!
We stayed at the St. Marie on short notice when I could find nothing else. We were in a ground floor suite with a kitchen. What a break for us. I oved the location and the staff was excellent as were the prices. I would highly recommend these accomodations which are only a few steps off Bourbon St.
Simply put, Hotel St. Marie offers true southern hospitality. I've stayed at many different hotels in the quarter and the St. Marie offers a great value for the price. The staff was always courteous and friendly. Rooms were clean, well proportioned and surprisingly quiet considering the location. The only down side was the painfully slow elevator. But as one local once said to me... "Why'd y'all come to New Orleans if you was in a hurry?"

... in the lower Mississippi Valley. Then drove to Planation Alley in Louisiana where plantations line the Mississippi River. We took a guided tour of the big house at Oak Valley Plantation in Vacherie. It has a quarter mile of arching live oaks which were planted over 300 years ago. The house was built in 1839 and has been used in movies such as Interview with the Vampire. The tour was good and gave the history of the houses owners etc. Most of the ...

We sat in the room anticipating her meal and the hopes of being discharged. After a bit of waiting we got bored and took a stroll around the floor. While we were walking around a nurse informed us that her paperwork from Meriter (7-10 days?) had arrived, awesome! With spirits a bit lifted Kaitlyn took a shower and then we waited some more. Finally the ...
