**I still do recommend this place...read on...*

Our room smelled like urine. I understand we're in New Orleans and a musty smell often comes with it, so I'm not being overly sensitive here... after airing the place out with the door open for a good hour and spraying some woman's body spray, it was pretty much fine...but when we stepped through that door we were pretty close to demanding a new room... but we're pretty easygoing people and took all things into consideration.

This was the only issue we had...the beds were comfy, the bathrooms nice, super clean otherwise...just a funky urine like smell. The lobby is awesome and immaculate, the staff is beyond friendly and accomodating and the hotel is close enough to Bourbon St. without being right on top of it. The bar attached, Hillery, I believe, is cute and awesome with a great bartender. I really do recommend this place... because it's a fact, most hotels in New Orleans will have a funky musty smell, that's life....so bring a bottle of Febreze and have a good time at Hotel St. Marie.

We stayed at the Hotel St. Marie from May 10-14. Basically what I've read about it on here is true. The location is great. My husband noticed a faint "smell" in the room, but I did not. The balcony was, indeed, quite small. The courtyard is very pretty and comfortable, although not much room around the pool. We didn't hear any noise from other rooms. The staff was very helpful in getting us a cab back to the airport. We didn't try the restaurants, so I can't comment on those. One big thing I would have liked is if the room had a little fridge. It's so hard to have to throw away the wonderful N.O. food because we didn't have a fridge for leftovers! I think the hotel's price is great for its location. It's not the BEST hotel I've stayed in, and we'll probably try somewhere else next time just because we like to see what else there is, but it was definitely one of the better ones we've been to.

Great location! The hotel staff was wonderful,polite,helpful. The elevator was being repaired but they offered to get someone to help with our bagage. It is a quaint hotel, typical of New Orleans. The garden was beautiful, as well as the views. The room was clean, more like a master bedroom than a hotel room. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel!

Stayed at the Hotel St. Marie during Jazz Fest. The hotel is in a great location - about half a block from Bourbon St. The staff are friendly and helpful with things like directions, restaurant recommendations, and obtaining cabs. The downsides were few, but important enough to mention. We had a room with two double beds. It smelled musty and damp. The smell lingered the entire time we were there, but did diminish some after two days. The bathroom door was slatted, so if you like privacy in the bathroom, forget it. The courtyard with the pool is quaint but extremely small. For extra $$, you can get rooms with a balcony and couryard view. However, the balconies barely hold two people and the distance between one side of the courtyard and the other is probably only 30 or 40 feet. Also, as other reviewers have noted, the walls are thin and you can hear people in the rooms next to you and in the hall very clearly.

I came to New Orleans in November to work on a recovery project. At that time there were a few shops and restruants open for business. The folks here took excellent care to make our stay so pleasent, you will find the staff here so warm and friendly. They are always willing to assist you in meeting your needs during your stay. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained.
