      Historical Traveler Reviews Place d'Armes Hotel New Orleans

      Nice hotel, super location


      We were in Place d'Armes late September and indeed some construction still went on, and this will defintely pay off.

      The room we had was large enough, the bath room was clean and P d'A has a really romantic Italian style garden with a little pool, like in Melrose Place (for those who remember the series).

      The hotel offers tasty croissants and a good cup of coffee as breakfast (which I guess may apply more to continental Europeans).

      The location is superb and we got a great rate of $50 through the visitors center!

      Staff and Reservations Desk Need to Learn Customer Service


      When calling to try and make a reservation I was passed around, hung up on and was treated as if they were doing me a big favor by speaking to me! I requested 2 rooms one with a street Balcony and one in the back with first floor courtyard access. Well you would have thought I asked him to actually do his job, or something equally crazy! I was informed that Balconey rooms are first come first served ONLY. NO RESERVATIONS??? Is this a hotel??? I wanted a balcony and was willing to pay for it, BUT was told NO!! They are available but maybe they could do something; "If you know what I mean". Giving me the distinct impression that a shake down at check in was in store!!!!!!! BEWARE They try to pawn off the WINDOWLESS INTERIOR ROOMS (we called it CELL BLOCK H_LL), They tried this last year too; but we were actually standing in the lobby and were savvy enough to ask to see the room BEFORE handing over the money. I had stayed at the hotel last year and to be honest they have one of the most New Orleans-ish courtyards in town BUT THE ROOMS ARE SMALL, IN NEED OF CLEANING, THE BEDS WERE SCAREY AND EVERTHING NEEDS UPDATING!! The family who owns this hotel should get their staff in hand!! I will never stay at this hotel again!! There are many other NICE hotels with better service, DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

      Place d'Armes Robbery


      I booked a room at Place d'Armes based on reviews from this website.

      What a dissapointment! I paid regular rates to stay in a hotel that was in the middle of reconstruction. There was work underday in the hallway outside my room and in the room directly above mine. Just imagine spending a late night on Bourbon Street and being awakend by pounding from the room above at 7 a.m. I'll never return to this rude establishment. The nerve!

      Be Warned: Renovation Going On!


      We had booked reservations at the Place D'Armes based on the reviews given here, but upon arriving September 4, we were dismayed to find half the hotel undergoing extensive renovations! If paint smell, scaffolding and workmen turn you on, this is the place. Fortunately the hotel staff were exceptional and allowed us to move to the Hotel St.

      Marie, also in the French Quarter. Beautiful courtyard with pool, beautiful hotel and we definitely recommend this hotel until the Place D'Armes reconstruction is completed.

      Wonderful Vacation


      Just returned from a trip to New Orleans. We stayed at the Place de Armes a half block from Jackson Square. The entire stay was wonderful. Everyone from the bell hops to the front desk, to the housekeeping staff was friendly, warm and helpful. The atmosphere was incredible with a nice pool and courtyard. We have visited NOLA 9 times in 7 years and this will be the ONLY hotel i will stay at in the future. Congratulations to the management for having such a great staff !

      Fantastic Location!


      Place d'Armes has one of the best locations in New Orleans...just steps away from Jackson Square. We could walk everywhere. The staff was very helpful and courteous and we all agreed, we would stay there again.

      It's not fancy, but the location compensates for that, and the courtyard is so inviting!

      Great hotel...will return!


      We found this hotel on Trip Advisor and after reading the reviews posted here, we decided to try it out. I was delighted by the location (one-half block from Jackson Square), the beauty of the courtyard and pool (staff mentioned that a magazine is photographing the courtyard for a story this month) and the friendly service by staff who were always quick to offer help and make recommendations. The hotel is very old, built in the late 1700's and was formerly an old boys school. We had a pleasant courtside room and the accomodations were satisfactory.

      My boy especially enjoyed the pool and I loved the fresh flowers on each table at the complimentary breakfast. Good job Place d'Armes - thank you for a lovely visit and we'll see you next year!! :-)

      I Loved It!


      This is surely in the top 3 hotels I've ever stayed in. It was the most luxurious or biggest, but I was able to get the best nights sleep of any other hotel . The hotel is located a few blocks from Jackson Square. It is a very historic looking hotel.The people were very helpful and friendly. There was a nice courtyard with trees that happened to be blooming with very pretty flowers. Made for a perfect pic of my wife and I. Now for the part that I liked the most..We happened to get a room that had no windows, and at first I thought this was odd and a bad thing. Well, the next morning I was able to sleep in until after 10am (normally I can't sleep past 7am) because there was absolutely NO LIGHT in the room at all! I wish I could get our room at home that dark. This isn't something most people think about, but it made this hotel one of my favorites.

      Great location


      I stayed here with my sister-in-law and our two children, ages 8 and 12 during Easter week this year. We had a great time with no problems. The hotel is clean and quiet. The room was large with a shared balcony. The staff was friendly and always helpful. While not a four-star luxury hotel (the towels could be softer), the location and price cannot be beat.

      Great summer getaway with kids!


      This august I traveled to New Orleans with my sister and our three kids, 12,10,9. We stayed at a wonderful hotel, Place de armes. It was wonderfull. The hotel is located less than a block from Jackson square and only two to Cafe du monde. There was also a wonderful little place Madelines right on the corner that was great for a tea and dessert. The weather was actually cooler that Jersey ( we had an extended heatwave in nj this summer). I would recomend New Orleans for kids. We took the Cajun Pride swamp tour and we all got to hold a baby alligator. This was the boys hightlight of the trip. We also visited the zoo and aquarium. Both wonderful. keep the aquarium and imax for a hot day. We also took the jazz lunch cruise on the Natchez. IT WAS GREAT. Our children are all musical and the city is teeming with jazz. We also went to Preservation Hall one night. A MUST , but it is hot inside. don't dress up. people were coming in dressed to the hilt and!melting.

      Bourbon street was seedy but a must see. We also went into the garden district for lunch and did the D Day museum and the civil war museum. It was interesting but probably not good for small kids. good for a hot day though. I would recommend the Gumbo Shop and Remoulades. good food and kid friendly. Also the kids loved shopping at the french market. Stay away from street fortune tellers. They scam you quick into a 10. reading. But all in all we loved it and can't wait to go back. any questions email me. I'm experienced in traveling with kids on my own.

      I recently had a discussion about dogs in general with Erik. I told Erik that I thought I was not necessarily a dog person, but a Gordon person. Gordon is the first dog I have ever lived with and absolutely the first dog I ever loved. He quickly taught me that he could give me more love and laughter than I realized. I was hopelessly attached to that dog, and although I told him often that he would live forever, I knew that ...

Even though everyone was giving her all the same answers she kept asking. Then she was onto the phone company asking for free credit to ring her husband - but she had to ring the neighbors house as he didn't have any credit either (you pay to receive calls over here) so she wanted ...

After we checked in, we decided to grab some food and drinks from the supermarket across the road from the hotel. After negotiating the 10 lane highway, we each came back with 2 energy drinks, 1 chocolate milk, 3 apples, 1 bag of chips and a 6 pack of Coors (beer). Sadly, Matt and Craig misjudged the size of their beers and looked like they had bought ...

Mardi Gras is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday and in French it means 'Fat Tuesday'. We were staying in a very old guest house that was supposedly haunted not far from the French Quarter. The streets were full of people due to ...
