loved the convenience to everything in the garden district and magazine street our room and bathroom was clean and well made, however, the carpet had not been vaccumed-only on the left side of the bed and was still not vaccumed during our 3 night stay-even after requesting maid service-I just put down towels-carpet had grass and debris and king size bed had very worn spots were people had slept that had worn mattress down-Oh, there seemed to be only 2 tiny elevators that hardly fit you and your luggage-and housekeeping had to use same elevator-very inconvenient for them and guests.
Everything except the little water pressure in our bathroom sink. Little water pressure in lavatory
The hotel is quaint and historic but updated with all the modern amenities. It's the best of both world's. Also, I don't think I've ever met a friendlier staff. Folks in NOLA are typically very friendly (and genuinely so), but everyone at the Pontchartrain, from the front desk to the bar to the housekeeping staff, seemed delighted to have us there. The Garden district is a little removed from the CBD/Quarter area. Prepare to spend $$$ on taxis/Uber if you want to live it up.
Lobby. Room. Tin Roof Bar Difficult to adjust air to cool. Shower removable spray comes off when water turned on and sprays in face and sprayed wife in hair outside when she used wetting entire room.. Over priced and overrated.
Location, Restaurants, Bar Uncomfortable Beds, no extra pillows
We loved the location because it was easy parking an very close to garden district which was top of our list and lots of cool places to eat and drink, magazine street. And just a short streetcar ride to the French quarter and so much more. Also the staff was very helpful and everything was clean and very accommodating to our needs. I'll definitely stay again and recommend to friends. One tiny thing, my boyfriends bunk, top, was super squeaky. To the point if he moved a tiny bit it made noise making it hard for him to sleep and disturbed others.
