Visiting New Orleans for the first time is quite an experience and staying at the Le Pavillion Hotel only added to the historical atmosphere of New Orleans.
The Le Pavillion is located about five blocks from the French Quarter, this location made it quite easy for us to walk anywhere we wanted to go. Getting a taxi or shuttle was also simple, all we had to do was tell the concierge or the bell hop and we were on our way.
The employees of Le Pavillion seem dedicated to customer service. Being treated so grand absolutely made my stay there worthwhile. At the breakfast table in the crystal room while I was drinking the awesome coffee they serve, I asked if I could have a Bloody Mary with breakfast and the server told me “Of course, you’re a platinum guest.”
The Le Pavillion has been around for a hundred years, resulting in a wonderland of antique décor and treasures throughout the hotel. I love history and it’s very cool to see that the Le Pavillion can hang onto such culture and tradition throughout the course of a hundred years.
At night between the hours of ten and eleven you can go down to the lobby to enjoy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with ice cold milk or hot chocolate. Of course there is a story behind this of a guest from a long time ago. You can find the full story of the PB&J from their website here.
On the roof you will find the pool, hot tub and fitness center. We had a great time looking over the city from the roof and soaking up the mid morning sun in lounge chairs.
Our rooms were absolutely beautiful. The large windows were draped with gorgeous curtains and looked down onto the street. In the bath tub I found a little menu where I could order a drawn bath in a variety of different ways. (For a cost) The one and only complaint I had about the rooms was that there wasn’t a coffee pot in the room. I thought about this later and figure this must be a strategy to get you up and about, after all there is so much of the city to see!
All in all, I am extremely happy with my stay at the Le Pavillion and definitely recommend it to anyone staying in New Orleans.
