Prytania Oaks Hotel
Ranked #116 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Reviewed 21 June 2012

In New Orleans for a convention and stayed at Prytania Oaks mainly for the location. The hotel is in the Garden District which is beautiful, quiet and full of charming historic buildings. Also convenient to the Convention Center, only took about 5 minutes to drive there. Parking is free (unlike downtown hotels that charge upwards $30 per day). The roomrate was only $79. Great value. The charm and character of the building and rooms was great. Clean, well kept rooms. Good service. Rooms are slightly small and we were on the 2nd floor. No elevator, but we are healthy and didn't mind the stairs. If you are elderly or handicap be sure to ask for a bottom floor room. When visiting New Orleans again, I will stay at this charming hotel!

This is a sweet little deal in a perfect location. I wouldn't say the room was small, as many reviewers have commented, but it is a little cramped. That being said, we didn't use the room for anything other than showering and sleeping, so it was perfect. The hotel is a in a great location and offers free parking which CANNOT be beat. The furniture in the room was in excellent condition. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with a very nice shower. If you are booking on a budget, and don't require amenities, Prytania Oaks is the way to go.

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel! It added to our great experience in New Orleans. We've been to the city many times and have stayed at various places but I would rank Prytania Oaks near the top of the list. The rooms are clean. Shower was spacious and hot with good water pressure. Bed was very comfortable, large, and clean. The hotel is just a block off the street car route. We spent the whole day riding the street cars and walking around the French Quarter. Also there's a neat little coffee shop on St. Charles called Krewe Du Brew that I highly recommend. It's close to lots of restaurants and a park in a decent area. I'm looking forward to going back with my family!

Located in the very nice Garden District of NOLA, the Prytania Oaks belongs to the Prytania Park Hotel diagonally across the street. When checking in you need to first drive to this hotel, not to the Oaks. The Prytania Oaks is a newly renovated historic building, the rooms could be called almost “boutique chic”, and they are very nicely furnished, centrally air-conditioned, bathrooms with stylish b&w tiles and granite vanity top. The location is excellent, you actually can walk to the French Quarter from here, but the trolley line is only a block away. This is a very good deal: Very nice rooms, excellent quiet location, free parking, breakfast and Wifi. Hard to beat.

We enjoyed our stay at Prytannia Oaks and agree we'd stay there again if we go back to New Orleans. But there are a few things we found a bit quirky. The hotel is in the middle of a mixed residential/commercial area one block off St Charles. When you arrive, there is nothing to indicate you've arrived at Prytannia Oaks, except the address and a paper sign on the gate telling you registration is a block and a half away to the Prytannia Park. Not a huge inconvenience, but a bit unusual. I thought for a value priced hotel, the room was nicely renovated and nicely appointed and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very spacious, clean with a good shower. The room had the high ceilings of the 19th century and a queen sized poster bed and nicely redone wooden floors. Both rooms had a non-functional but decorative fireplace in them. However as much as we enjoyed the decor of the room and found it to be very quiet, it was the smallest queen room I'd ever stayed in, very difficult for the two of us to manuever in. Parking is also a bit tight with the parking lot only having room for 8-10 cars while hotel has sixteen rooms. We were able to obtain a lot space overnight both nights we were there but did have to park on the street when returned one night before dinner.The Sunday breakfast was set up at Prytannia Oaks and looked to have a decent variety, including waffles made for you by a staff member, although Monday's was set up in the courtyard of Prytannia Park and seemed to lack the variety of the Sunday breakfast. The staff was friendly and very helpful and the location was very convenient. There is a pretty good variety of restaurants within walking distance on St Charles (although the best one was Dijon five blocks away on Annunciation). Overall, we found the positives outweighed the negatives.

Hotels3, General Manager at Prytania Oaks Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded 14 May 2012

Dear Guest,

First of all, Thank you for taking time out to write a review. We appreciate it a great deal. But I would like to clarify a few points:
1. All reservations, no matter where or how booked (direct with us, our website, or any number of 3rd party agents) state that Registration and Check In is at our main property, The Prytania Park Hotel with the address. We do have a sign on the front gate for those that do not completely read the confirmations, just scanned for accuracy to dates and rates.

2. The fireplaces are for decoration only, due to the age of the building, 1840’s, the hearths and fireplace are original. This is how the house was heated that many years ago and if was still a Single family home, possibly could be operational, however, since we are a hotel, we could not get clearance from the State Fire Marshall considered a Fire Hazard. Don’t forget, this was back when, and still is a Residental neighborhood. As with many Historical Districts wherever you travel, you will find a few businesses tucked in here and there. Same with New Orleans. There are a few businesses scattered throughout the Garden District area, but for the most part, still mainly residential.

3. The main parking lot for all 3 of our hotels is at the Prytania Park, where there is more than amply parking. However, those staying here and at the Queen Anne, do have access to a smaller lot. The adjacent business allows us to share the parking lot for our guests, since parking in most older sections of any city is limited to Street parking, and New Orleans is no exception.

We are Self Park Off Street, and is Free of Charge. Unlike most hotels in New Orleans. Example, in the French Quarter or Warehouse District is actually several blocks from most hotels, and they have Mandatory Valet and a high cost $18-$35 per night. So our Guests are very lucky to have it right at their door basically and Free of Charge.

4. Breakfast selection will vary from hotel to hotel, but it is still an Expanded Continental Breakfast and has more than enough choices for everyone to find a palatable “get me going” breakfast.

5. Thank you for the Restaurant recommendation, we will pass it on as well from the Front Desk.

Fondly,
Dori H Schulman
General Manager
