"Small room" at Marriott's Renaissance Pere Marquette, N.O.?

We have reserved what is called their "small" room for one or two people at the good rate of $89. I'm hoping someone can say they have stayed there and can give us the straight scoop on just how small small is! Much of our time will be spent out and around, so what do you think? Thanks for sharing your experiences.

I haven't stayed there - sorry - just writing to say that if you want a very good meal at a quiet and not "iconic" New Orleans restaurant, the restaurant in the Pere Marquette, MiLa, is very very good.

Why don;t you just call the hotel and ask for exact dimensions - then you'll know for sure. Also, get the specifics on the bed size - will you be comfortable sharing on double bed or 2 twins?

Thank you so much for the MiLa recommendation...had no idea it was good.

Yes, a simple phone call would answer my question. I'm wondering what someone's overall impression is of staying in that small room, perhaps over and above the dimensions.

I do think we will keep it based on other prices I see in the area.

According to their website, the smaller rooms are 119 square feet. So maybe 10 by 12? It says it has a queen-sized bed, so it'll probably be okay.

Thanks, Susan. I believe I could do OK in that space....kind of like a typical Paris hotel room!

119 square feet? I didn't know they made rooms that small But I agree, as long as it fits the bed and has room to store your suitcases, it ought to be fine. We were at the Hotel Le Soleil in Vancouver this past weekend, and our bedroom (it was a 2-room suite) was tiny -- just big enough for a queen size bed, 2 nightstands, and a dresser-like thing with the TV on top. the main "square" area was probably not more than 10 x 10, although the closet/entry were "extra". It was just fine. I think the decor and very comfortable bed made up for the size of the room!

Yes, sf, I think we will be ok. Marriott usually has nice bedding and decor should be nice. Some say the MiLa restaurant there is good, too.
