Fodor's Expert Review Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel

817 Common St., New Orleans, Louisiana 70112, USA See on Map

Cameron Todd

This friendly, stylish hotel is within walking distance to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter.

The hotel has no airport shuttle fee, but is happy to help you arrange with an outside company for $24.

room

Bright, modern rooms include sunny windows, writing desks, and mini fridges.

bathroom

Larger than average marble bathrooms have walk-in showers or bathtub/shower combinations.

lobby

Funky mood lighting and leather cushions give this lobby a loungey vibe, and it's a relaxing place to begin or end a night out on the town.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Some guests will be disappointed that the hotel has no outdoor pool, though there is an outdoor lounge area on the third floor roof instead.

gym

A small gym feature cardio machines and free weights.

dining

Dining outlets at this hotel let you sample two beloved New Orleans food traditions: beignets and oysters. New Orleans Coffee and Beignet company serves them light and fluffy, where The Oyster Counter & Tap Room shucks cold gulf oysters in an old school oyster bar setting.

drinking

The Oyster Counter & Tap room serves affordable wines and features local drafts. There's also a swanky lobby bar.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The hotel is only a block from Canal Street, where you can catch the streetcar or continue walking into the French Quarter.

Restaurants

Willa Jean (8-minute walk) serves up great pastries and brunch options, where Company Burger next door has one of the best burgers in the city.

Bars

Check out the wine list at the intimate Cellar Door (7-minute walk), or head to The Little Gem Saloon (7-minute walk) for live jazz and piano acts.

WHY WE LIKE IT

The casual dining options are fun and don't scream "hotel restuarant," while you're also close enough to the Quarter to dine and drink anywhere you'd like. Rooms have more windows than average and let in a lot of natural light.
