    Historical Traveler Reviews Inn on St. Peter New Orleans

    St. Peter Guest or ghost house?

    from

    This was my first experience at the St. Peter Guest House. It was quite

    spartan, but relatively clean, however, no rugs or carpets on the

    floors. There were no lamps in the room other than the ceiling light.

    Fortunately, some of the bulbs were burned out. There was no clock in

    the room, nor were there any glasses. The room I was in had an outside

    wall on Dauphine, which made for a lot of noise all night long. The bed

    was not made up during the day. The location, for the purpose of my

    trip, was fine. It was more than a little disconcerting after I checked

    in, to find out I was staying in a room (Room 37) where Johnny Thunder

    had died in 1991. It would have either been nice to know that before

    hand, and given the option of staying in the room or not, or being able

    to go some place else. (Which was not an option on this particular

    trip.) I'm not superstitious, but it did cast a pall over the trip. The

    staff was very pleasant both at check in and check out, offering

    assistance in getting transportation to the airport.Would I stay here

    again? I don't know at this point in time. Maybe as time dulls the

    memory, I might.

    Will stay again without a doubt!!

    from

    The reviews posted here varied so much we almost canceled our reservation. I'm so glad we didn't. It's a delightful place to stay. The continental breakfast had first rate croissants, some even filled with chocolate, muffins, two breads, a toaster, english muffins and both regular coffee and hazlenut flavored. Our room was clean and had excellent water pressure. The room was small in a European fashion and the A/C worked fine. The desk clerks were friendly and saved our vacation with a timely call for a cab (see a review of a limo service that follows). It was so hot in town that if we visited again when temps are in the 90's or above, we might consider a place with a pool, otherwise this will our first lodging choice in New Orleans when we visit again. What follows is something I posted on the Arthur Frommer message board: We found a New Orleans airport transfer that promised the same rate as the shuttle but in a limo with complimentary drinks. There were five of us traveling and of course, this sounded like a good deal. Extreme Elegance Limo Service was not waiting at the airport when we arrived. After giving them an extra 15 minutes, we called to find out what was up. "Our other limo's air conditioning broke and we got behind, but your limo is on the way" and so we waited well over an hour until it showed. It indeed had a decanter of vodka and whiskey but no ice nor apology. Believing them, we made arrangements for a pick-up back to the airport when our stay was over. We reconfirmed the morning of our departure and when the time passed for the pick-up we tried calling but got a busy signal until an hour had passed. The woman said we're having "car troubles" but let me patch you to our New Orleans location. That woman said "We're having a bad day and no one will be available to pick you up". My wife quietly hung up the phone, explained the situation to the desk clerk at The St. Peter Guest House, who had a wonderful van (Royal Taxi) there within 5 minutes. You may d on our list of repeat businesses. The lack of a courtesy phone call where we could have made alternate plans fails every test of minimal customer service.

    Just like Arnold! I'll be back!

    from

    This was my second trip to the French Quarter and I was there for Jazz Fest. Two weeks out and I still didn't have a room and was planning on staying with friends, but I decided to try online one last time for a room in or close to the quarter. Almost all of the places were in the high $200 a night range so I was resigned to not be in the "thick of things" so to speak but and behold the St. Peters house Hotel had a room with a double bed for $159 a night Friday and Saturday and $129 for Sunday. Needless to say I jumped on it. I think the hotel was great, clean, charming with tons of ambience and two blocks from Bourbon St. My little room had a door that slid up into the window above and I had to duck to get into the room but that was just fine by me. It was clean with hot water and cold AC. I recommend this super unique hotel for those that don't need to be pamperred by the big chains.

    What has happened to St. Peter House?

    from

    The quality of St. Peter House has sadly diminished since Mardi Gras 1999 when I found it to be charmingly quaint and clean. This year, Mardi Gras 2003, it was absolutely filthy and in disrepair. The only housekeeping done during our 5 night stay was to provide fresh towels, but there was never enough of them and very rarely did we have wash cloths. The filth included a "dust bunny" encrusted shirt left under the bed by a previous occupant and black slime in the shower and on the floor of the bathroom (a simple treatment of Tilex Mildew Remover would take care of that). The floors in the room were so nasty that I ruined several pairs of socks. When I got home and took a shower, I said it was the first time my feet had been clean since I left home. Everything smelled musty and moldy. The commode would not flush because the tank would not fill; when it did, it leaked onto the bathroom floor. The pressure of the hot water in the shower would cut off resulting in cold showers. I love New Orleans and will come back. But sadly, I will never come back to St. Peter House.

    Expectations - Don't have any

    from

    This place was sad and filthy. A breakdown of my experience: 1.) The minute I checked into the hotel, I found myself to be an absolute annoyance to the hotel manager. (I know it was her because she actually gave me her card after I checked in.) I tried to ask her a few questions regarding parking, etc. upon arrival but she literally cut me off and told me to wait because she was busy doing the check-in paperwork. (I was the only person in the room. 2.) The floor was filthy. I had to wear shoes the entire time after I realized that I ruined two pairs of socks while walking IN THE ROOM. 3.) They don't seem to mind though, my room was only cleaned on two of the four days I spent at the hotel. 4.) I inquired to the front desk on three occasions about restaurants, delivery options, etc. and on ALL THREE OCCASIONS I was told "I don't know, I can't really help you." 5.) I arrived back in my room one afternoon to find a maintenance man who was "looking for leaks." He was a nice guy but he was in the room for more than an hour talking on his cell phone. 6.) The hotel offers no food or beverages. There was one soda machine but it was out of order.And the list goes on and on. So if your vacation lodging EXPECTATIONS are the following: you don't mind rude and unintelligent people, you already know everything about the city you are visiting, you don't care about cleanliness and you don't ever need food or water... The St. Peter House is the place for you.

    Surprising nice experience

    from

    My friends and I stayed at the St. Peter House and were very surprised at the size of the room, the nice decor and staff, and best of all we liked the semi-private entrance to the room. The rates were a deal especially for being in walking distance to Burbon Street and all the happenings, as well as, cable in rooms and a kichenette to boot. Well worth the money!

    Dirty

    from

    From my initial encounter with the unwelcoming manager through to the unfriendly check out, this was a bad experience. but the worst aspect was the lack of cleanliness. There was a dirty q-tip on the stairwell the entire visist. Hair on the bathroom floor upon check in that never was cleaned. The room was vacumed only once in three days and then only near the center of the room. I know it wasn't because they didn't have a vacum, as I had to walk around it in the hallway to get in to my room each time. I would NEVER return here.

    Great Hotel, Great Service

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the St. Peter House for 5 days along with my parents and brothers. We really liked the hotel. It was quaint with nice size rooms, kitchenette, large bathroom. I have actually lived in an apartment that was smaller than our hotel room. It is also in a great location just a few minutes from Bourbon Street yet, far enough that it was quiet. The staff was always helpful with directions, cabs, really anything we needed. We would not hesitate to go back.

    Staggering distance from Bourbon street

    from

    I have stayed at St. Peter House on several occasions over the past 10 years and have had a most enjoyable stay each and every visit. It is well within staggering distance from Bourbon Street. The atmosphere of the Hotel is "quaint."

    Great Basic Hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Saint Peter last time we visted NOLA. I just booked us in again for our upcoming trip with our little son. The hotel is clean and basic. It's no frills but has charm unlike chain hotels. The rates are fantastic. It's a quick jaunt to Café Du Monde but the bonus is it's out of the extreme drinking zone. It's a great place to lay your head at the end of the night and not have to listen to the carousing.

    Eating our way around NOLA

    On the recommendation of our waitress from Felix's the night before we woke up early and rode the street car up to Betsy's Pancake House for a 'local institution' breakfast. This is a typical neighbourhood pancake house. I love homely, comforting restaurants like this. The décor is worn from years of bums on seats and the laminated table tops …

    Behind the University of Louisiana (Lafayette Campus) there is Cyprus Lake, right in the middle of town. It's swamp like 2 acres of water and beautiful trees is home to birds, turtles and alligators! We had a pit stop here to check things out before heading out of town. The morning sun (and the bitter cold) was glorious and we did spy an alligator …

    We headed out of the parking garage and into the casino to play a bit and make the time. This is where Joe's "thing" for the weekend began... " High-fives for hot chicks" He literally said this to every woman he passed this weekend shamelessly even if their boyfriends were right there...lol As far as gambling goes, Nick, Bryan and I tried out some penny slots since we didn't want to waste our ...

    ... in the early 1800’s. Back in the CBD we took a ferry across the river to the historic Algiers area and did a ride along the river. It was really windy and not particularly scenic, so we cut it short and returned to the CBD on the ferry. The jaunt did give us more of an appreciation of the Mississippi as used for cargo. At the historic French Market we purchased some fresh bread, cheese and tomato and back ...

    ... drive around a bit to get to it and walk a bit back but it saved us big time both in fees and the cost of a possible break in from the public lot. I don’t plan on using the car anyway so we parked it and its done. The only bad taste we had was that the attendant claimed it was cash only which I am quite sure he pocketed. Ro said they allowed credit and when Jym pulled in to use his card (I just like to do that as proof you paid) the guy originally ...
