    This hotel is so comfortable and accommodating! It's located right on the Garden District, where the homes and architecture are lovely. The office staff were incredibly friendly, charming, and helpful. The location is ridiculously convenient to the St. Charles Streetcar (less than one block), so it was very easy to get downtown and to the French Quarter. The continental breakfast served each morning was plentiful and relaxing -- after piling up your tray, you could sit at one of the wrought iron tables or the swinging bench in the courtyard and take in the sunlight, air, and singing birds. What a nice, soothing way to start the day! Secure lockboxes are available at the front desk,so you can feel comfortable about leaving certain valuables behind. And the food available in the immediate vicinity was OFF THE HOOK -- Cheesecake Bistro (puts Cheesecake Factory to shame!), Juan's Flying Burrito, Sucre, Sushi Brothers, and Mia's Balcony were all amazing eats. But the number one thing about this hotel was that guests could access the St. Charles Athletic Club across the street for free! This state of the art gym has friendly staff and  top of the line equipment -- being able to do my cardio everyday in an air conditioned environment, AND get strength training in as an unplanned bonus, absolutely made my stay! I can't wait to come back to this hotel with my husband to have a romantic getaway. :)

    Our stay here was certainly an interesting one.  This is my story of a haunted incident.  You may be skeptical as my husband was but, he is the one who heard it first.  We stayed here at a friend's recommendation who frequently visits her daughter attending college here.  We stayed at this quaint, Victorian bed and breakfast on the edge of The Garden District and within walking distance to The French Quarter for four days.  This is not our usual type of lodging.  Room 101 is on the first floor with windows facing the street.  The room has high ceiling with a braided rug on wooden flooring and on the far wall is a fireplace.  I remember checking out the bathroom that was covered in huge magnolia wallpaper.  It was the type of paper that looks like a haunted house with eyes that follow you so I had to check out every inch of the wall facing the toilet.  To my surprise, there was a small hole about a few inches off the floor.  I took the garbage can and placed it in front of the hole.  I had to check out what was on the other side of the hole as I can see there was light emanating from the opening.  From the outside hallway, I could see through the crack in the door that the other side to this opening was a janitor's wash room.  The light was on but no one was in there.  Well nothing happened until our last night's stay.  I fell asleep first while my husband watched the basketball game.  The game ended at 12:30am and that was when the noise began.  It started with heavy footsteps walking across the room above us.  The person paced the floor back and forth.  The flooring above was hardwood so it was pretty loud.  When I awoke to go to the bathroom, I could hear what was going on.  At first, I was going to ignore it and hope it would stop.  It wasn't just pacing disturbance soon there was a table picked up and dropped on the floor.  After a few of these table drops, debris started to fall from the ceiling.  Right then I decided I have to put a stop to this.  I call the room that I thought was right above us, room 201.  I found out they were not the party making the disturbances and they were also annoyed by the noise.  I then called the front desk who said they would check it out and call us back.  Well, we never got a call back.  The next morning on our way to checkout, a woman walked down the hall at the same time where I got some kind of intuition about her.  We both reached the desk at the same time where I let her go ahead of me.  I could hear her ask for another room for the rest of her stay.  I had interjected and apologized for the early morning call.  She mentioned that with all the disorders she didn't get any sleep.  They offered to move her after another room is cleaned for them.  I asked the front desk if this place was haunted where the desk clerk replied there was once a meow in a room where an indentation raised on the bed.  I asked if anyone died here where his reply was that the old building use to be an orphanage.  I'm thinking this orphanage was possibly for the elderly where some may have died.  

    I wasn't' scare by this incident but would probably if I had seen an apparition.  I can't tell you if this is a real haunting or if this is a ploy to establish a legend.  When I got home, I had researched New Orleans and found it to be the most haunted city in the United States.  Believe it or not, I dare you to stay here.

    For the price...great. Booked a room on Hotwire. Clean room, nice location. Private parking lot a nice plus. Breakfast is just coffee and store bought rolls. Staff very helpful.

    Prytania Park and Prytania Oaks are one and the same.  It's a bit confusing but we booked our room under Prytania Oaks and were more than satisfied with our experience.  The price was more than reasonable.  Our first night was $114 and the other nights were $140 (but we were staying over Thanksgiving and the weekend).  Our room was located on Prytania in a newer building and was awesome!  Large roomy, super comfortable king size bed, very clean and updated.  Digital TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, free wi-fi, two large balcony doors and lots of windows with so much beautiful light.  The room was very big and accommodating. It was in an excellent location...one block walk to St. Charles street cars.  Nicely located between St. Charles and Magazine streets. Lots of restaurant choices within walking distance and a Walgreens just a few blocks down St. Charles. It's location in New Orleans can't be beat...just below the Garden District and up from The Warehouse district.  About 10 minutes by trolley from the French Quarter.  It is walkable distance but it's a good hike to the FQ, approx. 30 or so minutes.  Christine took our reservation and also checked us in...she was amazing!  Super helpful and just an absolute sweetheart.  The continental breakfast is just that...nothing to write home about.  And steer clear of St. Charles tavern at least for breakfast...seriously sucks! (see my review)  We will definitely be coming back!

    I enjoyed my stay!  I've stayed in many hotels and B&Bs in New Orleans but this was my 1st time here.  Although the price is lower than many other hotels there was absolutely nothing negative about my experience.  The room was small but very clean. The bathroom was super small with only a shower, but what the heck, I did not pay 4 or 5 star price.  All of the staff members were congenial.  The St. Charles trolley is a block away.  You can catch the Magazine bus a few blocks away too.  Since I enjoy walking I went to WalMart on Tchoupitoulas for some socks, Sucre and Whole Foods on Magazine for macaroons and fruits respectively, and I even walked to the French Quarter during the day for a chocolate croissant at Croissant D'or on Ursuline and a tour of Beauregard-Keyes house on Chartres.

    I really liked staying here. It was in a nice safe, area. Close to magazine street which is a great place to walk in the Garden District. Was very close to the street car, even though we never used it. The shower was a bit tight and would not be comfortable for a plus size person. I liked that it made available a membership to the fitness center on st. charles. It was great, because it was a full gym instead of just a couple of machines and free weights that a normal hotel offers. However, it would be more convenient to have one on the premises, but since the lobby is across the street about half a block away, convenience on that front isn't really a priority. But I always got what we needed, and the service was great. I would probably stay closer to downtown the next time we visit New Orleans, because most things are located downtown close to the french quarter. But I was able to get a great deal of stay two nights, get the third free. Can't beat that! :)

    As we were driving up to this hotel I was a bit frightened. To me the neighborhood looked a bit rough but I had already booked our room on BOOKIT.com and paid so there was no backing out. Once we were in the lobby I felt right at home. This place is really clean and once the AC was on for a few hours the upstairs loft was awesome. P.S. the only reason I mentioned Bookit.com was the fact that we paid $88 a night for a room with two queen beds and that is HARD to beat in NOLA.

    Wow! I booked this at the last minute and got a better deal at the front desk than on Kayak.com . For $59 dollars we got a charming room bedroom with a queen sized bed, microwave, wifi, free parking, and an LCD tv with cable. The room was very clean and charming. It had beautiful hard woods, a non-working fireplace, exposed brick, and an old fashioned four poster bed. There were no signs of bugs, the linens smelled clean and were soft, and we had plenty of towels. We could not control the ceiling fan or AC but the room was nice and cold compared to the sticky and hot humidity outside. I will be staying here again!

    I'm not sure how this hotel even got semi-decent reviews. I have been to worse hotels but this hotel meets average expectations on a good day. There were stains on the chairs and beds, holes in the walls, hair in the bathtub, overall grimey and they do a bare minimum cleaning job. Worst of all we met a 3 inch cockroach in the bathroom on our last day there. Our vacation in New Orleans was great except the hotel, we found ourselves anxious to get out of the hotel room as much as we could. I guess we got what we paid for.

    Wanted to stay on St. Charles and found this on hotels.com . Very nice staff. Very comfortable room. Very clean. Great location and free self parking. It said space available, but we never had a problem finding a spot. Easy to take public transportation to the French Quarter. We will stay there any time we need to be in New Orleans. Only drawback is paper thin walls, but it is an older building, so there really isn't much they can do about that probably.

    This is a very small independent hotel in the Garden District, near the St. Charles street car.  The hotel looks like an old converted mansion with an older portion and a newer portion.  We stayed in the old part of the hotel.

    This is not your average large chain hotel, so please keep that in mind when you choose this as your vacation lodging.  You will not get room service, you will not get wireless in your room, you won't get a huge bathroom.  

    What you will get is a clean and nice room with the necessities: a bed, clean sheets, a desk, a flat screen TV with satellite, very friendly and helpful staff, and a nice continental breakfast in the mornings.  I do suggest you take your breakfast in one of the courtyards the property has to offer and start your day on a relaxing note.  

    The property is close to the St. Charles street car, close to a few good restaurants, and located in the beautiful Garden District.  

    If you want to shop Magazine street, take the street car or a cab to the 6000 block and then walk down.  It's a long walk, but worth it!

    Great location, great rates and nice free breakfast !

    The girl and I stayed here recently and we really enjoyed every bit of it. My only compliant was that we had no control of the ac in our room. I'm very sensitive to temperature changes and can get really bad sinus headaches from ac and when it's so humid outside and then you sleep with the ac on all night, It spells disaster for my poor head !

    I read about somebody else having a "haunting" experience and all I have to say is,,, microwave ghost. We had to unplug the microwave because of a friendly visitor who must have thought it was best to communicate through the beep sounds. We never used the microwave for anything but somebody we could not see sure did !

    I would stay here again in a minute :)

    Booked a room then later canceled via phone.   Got confirmation from the desk attendant that my room reservation had been canceled.  A month after the date that would have stayed, a charge appeared on my credit card.   I called the front desk and explained what happened, and they said "No problem", but that the owner would need to approve.   The owner calls and launches into a tirade about needing phone records and more documentation,  culminating with her stating that "my story didn't add up" and then hanging up the phone on me.   The rooms might be nice, but the owner is certainly not, please do not patronize this business.   I have also received several insulting emails since initial correspondence.   Terrible experience with the management.

    Awesome location. Steps to the street cars to everywhere. Good places close by like Emeril's Delmomico and Luke. 10 minute walk to the museum and waterfront. Our room had 2 comfortable queen beds.  Free WIFI and parking in a safe lot.  I will stay there every time I am in town.

    We just returned from a weekend visit to New Orleans where we stayed at Prytania Park. Great location one block off St. Charles and the trolley line. Five minute trolley ride to Canal Street which gets you one block from Bourbon Street. A hop to Magazine Street for a day of great shopping.

    The room was clean and fresh. But the bathroom and fixtures desperately need updating. Peeling wallpaper, some small holes in the tiles and walls. The rooms have been updated with flat screen TVs and some furniture.

    Great location! Great price! We'll stay here again!

    Stayed here in Feb 2011 leading up to Mardi Gras, and would definitely recommend this spot for price, location, and a clean, comfortable stay. GREAT location for watching the parades if you do get there during Carnival season, as all pass down St. Charles, and the crowds are much less here.

    Location: Located in the Garden District (and yes, while it is situated next to a dilapidated and condemned old building, the area surrounding the hotel is very well-kept and gorgeous. Take a walk down Prytania or Magazine street one day to catch a glimpse of the beautiful architecture), and a 30 second walk to St. Charles, where you can catch the street car into the French Quarter. They say it's walkable from the hotel to the French Quarter, but that could easily take you upwards of an hour, so pay the $1.25 and hop on the St. Charles streetcar, you'll be in the FQ in 10 minutes. Or do what we did and buy a 3 or 5 day unlimited pass ($20 for 5 days) so you don't have to worry about fishing for change.

    The Room: We stayed in the historic queen, which has gorgeous exposed brick walls on the inside, a big comfy bed (slept like a baby in it), a flat screen TV, a microwave and a coffee maker. The room was always clean, and NO BUGS. Big bonus with all the bedbug issues in hotels these days. We were told we would have a fridge, but we didn't :( What am I going to do with a microwave, but no fridge? This, and the small size of the shower was the only downside to the room. The shower stall is so tiny, that it's nearly impossible to lather your hair or body without being constantly under the spray. And ladies, forget about trying to shave your legs without performing some sort of contortionist routine.

    Other tips:

    - There is free parking here for those who will be driving.
    - For those taking public transit like we did, be warned: they tell you the streetcar runs all night, but be warned: In the evening and night, it runs only once an hour. Don't plan to rely on it for any timed evening excursions. Take a cab at night.
    - Wifi works great in the room, but there is also a FREE computer w/ internet in the lobby, as well as a printer, for you to yelp away for restuarants and directions while you're in New Orleans.
    - The continental breakfast is composed of coffee, cereal, danishes and instant grits. Do yourself a favour and head over to magazine street to Surrey's Juice Bar and Cafe or the Please You restuarant on St. Charles for super cheap, hardy and tasty all day breakfast.
    - There is NO SAFE IN THE ROOM. We had to hide our passports and money in various inconspicuous spots in our luggage. However, our personal belongings never appeared to be touched, and there is a safe at the front desk if you so choose (as well as a sign saying they're not responsible for theft or loss of your belongings - convenient.)
    - If you're a light sleeper like me, you might wish to request a room away from the courtyard, as the walls of this old building are paper thin and people like to sit out early in the morning and late at night in this spot.

    For the prices this place charges, do stay here - you won't be disappointed by it's charm, it's location, and the great stay you'll have in New Orleans!

    Worn, tired place. Dumpy, trashy. Two star or less, If you want a budget hotel fine, but this one is not for me.  But staff is gracious, friendly and helpful. Would not stay here again. Sad, because several years ago I stayed and thought it was good but time changes things.

    A warning to any of you visiting NOLA: Never EVER stay at the Prytania Park Hotel, Prytania Oaks Hotel or the Queen Anne Hotel. I had the most disgusting customer service experience with one of those hotels today and they are all owned by the same family. They overcharged me by $40 for parking at Mardi Gras. I didn't notice until I was doing my taxes today and going over a huge stack of invoices. I called them thinking it would be a simple matter to clear up as I had stayed with them three times before and I always got good service. I have also recommended this hotel to countless friends.

    Instead, I got yelled at by the owner! I was told that it specified that I was going to get overcharged for days we didn't even utilize parking in the "contract" - which I was never given and didn't sign. She then looked up my last name in her computer system and told me my business wasn't important enough for a $40 refund because her records indicated that I hadn't stayed there in the past three years. She called me a liar for saying I had stayed there because my name didn't show up when the previous reservation was in my boyfriend's name. At Mardi Gras, we stayed in the Prytania Oaks and I offered to describe the interior of the rooms in the Prytania Park Hotel in which I had stayed previously. She then just continued yelling, told me to stay somewhere else when I was in New Orleans next, used an obscenity and hung up!

    Do yourselves all a favor and read the 1 and 2 star reviews on this site - they speak the truth! All of those giving more than 2 stars just were lucky enough to never have a minor customer service dispute with the owner. I had stayed here three times before without incident but the first time I have a problem, this woman goes ballistic!

    Look at all her responses to all of the posts giving a bad review to her hotel - they absolve her of most of the blame and instead place the blame on the guests.

    I don't know any other hotel that does this under any circumstance. I have worked in customer service for years and never treated anyone with such disdain.

    Do yourselves a favor and pay an extra $20 a night and stay somewhere that will take care of you. Lamothe House, Frenchmen Street Hotel, and Degas House are all wonderful hotels with great service!

    This hotel really is a fantastic deal.  We booked online through their website last minute and the price was very reasonable.  They also have free parking.

    We booked just a standard double and although the room was fairly 'cosy' we were welcomed with a lovely fresh lemony scent, the sheets and towels were clean and soft, the bed comfy and the room itself was immaculate.

    It is a few seconds walk from the 'trolley' (tram) which runs all the way up into town for just over $1 per person.  The hotel staff were very helpful with directions and places of interest.  They have free internet in the lobby and wifi in the rooms.

    We plan to return to New Orleans and would definitely choose to stay here again.

    We could not be happier after our stay with Prytania Park Hotel.

    I'll admit, I was a bit nervous after seeing some of the mixed reviews. We were quickly put at ease prior to our stay, thanks largely to a quick email correspondence with the general manager, Dori Schulman. We had a few specific questions, all of which were answered in detail.

    Finding the hotel (even for two people who get nervous when traveling in unfamiliar areas) was easy. Free parking - HUGE bonus in this area, by the way - was in the lot in 'front' of the hotel. Easily manageable, easy access. Excellent.

    Front desk staff (WHY can't I remember her name? I hope someone will comment and remind me - our stay was on 5 October, and we checked in approximately 4:30pm) was EXCELLENT. Friendly, knowledgeable, excited  at being involved in the big secret my best friend and I were keeping from our daughters (the reason for our NOLA visit: the Taylor Swift concert - one of their favorite artists!). She was ready to answer any and all questions, had plenty of information to give us, and was extremely patient with our (seemingly airheaded, at times, since we were tired and excited and looking forward to surprising our daughters) chatter.

    The hotel itself was charmingly beautiful. After chatting with the staff member at the front desk, we made our way to our carefully-chosen room. Our particular room was chosen for the "loft" area, which held the second queen bed ... and was accessed by a quaint spiral staircase. The room was the first surprise for our daughters, who squealed with delight and immediately climbed the stairs to their portion of the room.

    I'd read that the bathrooms were small, so I was a bit nervous, seeing as we had four females getting ready to go out for the night. We decided to let our daughters wear crazy (one blue, one turquoise :D) wigs and fun makeup (darker than usual), sparkly shirts, and whatever else they wanted to do. All they knew was that we were in New Orleans ... so they were game to dressing up and being silly. My nervousness was unfounded, though. Although the shower/toilet room is JUST large enough for the shower and toilet, there was PLENTY of counter space in the vanity area! This is important, because you know us girls like to spread our hair/makeup products all over the place while we decide what to do!

    By the way: there was also a mini fridge and decent-size microwave (not the kind that just pops a bag of popcorn - this one would equate to the counter-size m/w I use at home!). Also important!

    We had requested a cab be called for us at a particular time, and it was. We'd requested waters and snacks be placed on our hotel bill (it was), and the clerk continued to talk with us while we waited for the taxi and had a quick snack (lunch had been at noon, and we knew dinner wouldn't be til sometime after 9pm). She continued to hold onto our secret, and help build the girls' excitement.

    Side note: hotel staff should not assume that out-of-towners know how public transport works. We assumed the trolley near the hotel would go directly to the French Quarter, where we'd be going later that night ... we did NOT realize we'd have to take THREE trolleys to get where we wanted to go! While she was sweet about telling us how inexpensive the rides were, and how the money machine works (doesn't give change), and how they become less frequent as the night gets late ... she didn't mention we'd need to switch trolleys ... or that we'd have to know whether to take the red or green line at each interval.

    We returned to our room a little after 1 a.m., exhausted but happy (phenomenal concert ... deliciously delightful beignets and hot chocolate at Cafe du Monde ... beautiful night!) and were greeted by a cool room, sigh-worthy-comfortable beds, and soft lighting (we'd left a lamp on, and it had a low-light setting).

    Let me say, the beds were TRULY dreamable. Firm, but with a pillow-top layer. So, soft to the touch, but great for my aching back (4 hours of driving, 4 of concert, 2 of taxis and walking).

    Water pressure was fine for us. Again, the vanity space was wonderful as we all crowded around to brush our teeth and hair, apply a little makeup, and tame our hair.

    Breakfast consisted of coffee, juice, milk, cereal, cheese/fruit danish, and croissants (with various butters and jelly packets). Simple, which was exactly what we needed before we headed out to walk around the French Quarter for a while (again, not understanding the trolley system, since we'd taken a cab the night before).

    I cannot think of a single thing I would change about the Prytania Park Hotel. We plan to eventually get back to NOLA for some more sightseeing, and will DEFINITELY stay here again!

    Thank you, Prytania Park Hotel - we're definitely FANS!!

    My wife and I stayed here for Carnival this year. Prytania Park couldn't have been more perfect. It's location is central. You can get to the French Quarter as easily as you can get Uptown, plus there are good bars and restaurants right around the corner. (Avenue Pub, Surrey's. to name just two.)
    The rooms vary, but ours was small with a full-size bed, a tv, a closet, desk and a clean bathroom. For Mardi Gras, it was perfect. We just needed a clean, safe, comfortable place to crash after long days of walking all over NO. And considering that MG is the biggest tourist draw for NO, this hotel was not a rip-off at all. $169.00 for Thur-Sat. I'd say that's a deal.
    Lastly, the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

    THANKS!

    Post Script: One small suggestion: What if Prytania Park Hotel hosted a party in Colesium Park (1 block away) and called it Prytania Park's Partyina Park.
    Just a random thought I had before passing one night during Carnival.

    whilst the outside set-up of the hotel was interesting, our loft room left us feeling uncomfortable with climbing stairs to go to bed. they could have notified us previously but we made do. pretty good location as well.
    also there were a few lights that never came on with the flick of the switch, especially in the enclosed shower.

    This isn't a 5 star hotel, but they don't advertise it is. It is a great place to sleep which is all you need a hotel for when you are on vacation. Very unique, free parking, and half a block away from St. Charles. We have stayed here for years the first weekend of Mardi Gras parades and the location is awesome. It's a good walk to Bourbon but well worth it to see the city on your way...then take a cab back. The rooms are older and sometimes might need a little extra cleaning, just ask and they will do this for you. Don't forget...free parking! That saves you plenty.

    Cozy room, spacious bathroom, plenty of free parking. But - BRING EARPLUGS. We got a room beneath a family and it sounded like a bowling alley until they went to sleep. Not their fault - the architecture is just too old and there is almost no noise insulation. You can hear every footstep, conversation, housekeeper, etc. Would not recommend if you like to sleep in. Customer service also indifferent.

    I booked this hotel because our entire family was staying including our 15 & 12 year olds.  I had never been to NOLA before and though it would be best to stay out of the French Quarter because I didn't know how it would be at night.  So, I booked the Prytania because it was a great location, got fairly decent reviews, and looked pretty good in pictures.

    Pros:  Location - within walking distance to the trolley and some great restaurants (The Irish Pub was excellent).  Also, we were taking a cruise and would have been able to keep our car in their lot for the duration of the cruise.  We didn't end up doing that only because getting a taxi seemed like more of a pain than what it was worth.

    Cons:  Out of 3 employees I talked to at the front desk, only one had a pleasant personality.  Not what I was hoping for after driving all the way from SC.  Also, it wasn't clean.  Hair on the bathroom floor, carpet filthy, just gross in general.  I realize this is a very old building, but if it's not kept up, it's going to be nasty.  We booked 2 nights and after the first night, I called the front desk to see if we could check out early, and she said that wasn't an option unless we wanted to lose our money.

    Overall, I felt like we got what we paid for.  I think a lot of "unfriendly's" stay here because of the cost, and I'm considering it a lesson learned.

    Would not recommend or ever stay here again.

    I stayed here because I found an excellent bookit.com deal on their already reasonable prices at Prytania Park. I also checked the location and researched online reviews for this place before booking. It turned out to be an excellent value that I'm not sure I really want to let more people know about, but hey, it's Christmastime and we should all be more giving.

    It is in an excellent location, near enough to the French Quarter without the noise of being near Bourbon Street and is a 1 block walk to St. Charles where there are some excellent restaurants as well as the street car. Other great features are the free parking lot for hotel guests, free wi-fi, and helpful staff. They allow guests to use the computer and printer in the lobby to print out things like maps and airline boarding passes.

    The rooms are clean, have their own bathrooms and continental breakfast is included. The older rooms in the back are compact and do not have flat screen TVs but it suited my needs perfectly and I don't visit New Orleans to watch television.

    I would stay there again if I had the chance but as more travelers discover this place, the more difficult it is to get a room during festivals and other events.

    What a hidden gem in the rough!  I found this place online and took a shot in the dark booking a room for my roommate on Halloween.  I was totally shocked by them having rooms so cheap on that night given with Voodoo fest and all.  
    +1 - they have their own FREE parking lot!  
    +1 - 2 queen beds in a loft room $113!
    +1 - free community coffee in the room!
    +1 - continental breakfast included (ends at 9 and c/o is 11, we opted to sleep in)
    +1 - super helpful staff
    +1 - super close to EVERYTHING!  

    If you don't care about the newest amenities (tv, clock/radio) or need certain toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste), this is the place for you.  It's quiet, clean and reasonable.  If you want something with character and personality, don't miss this place.

    This is an excellent hotel in a historic (circa 1800s) building but very well maintained. The Prytania street side of the hotel looks a little bit sketchy for tourists BUT if you just focus on how the parking lot is just a couple of minutes walk to the St. Charles streetcar stop, then you'll realize that you are getting a great deal for a very good location! Wi-Fi was also very reliable and have good bandwidth. We had a room with a loft and the kids loved the spiral staircase. However, it may not be too safe if you have small kids or people with disabilities in your party so make sure you're aware of that if you're getting this room. Also kinda weird to have the microwave and fridge inside the bathroom--but it's in a separate corner and we're not picky so it's all good. Breakfast options could probably be improved even by just adding hardboiled eggs, sausage or any other protein. However, the coffee (they use the local Community Coffee brand) is superb! Overall a great value and will probably use this hotel again on our next visit.

    We stayed in this hotel for the first time in 2012. We had such a good experience that we decided to stay here again to celebrate our 5th anniversary in March. The room was fine, however the air conditioner didn't work, in fact the heat was on most of the time we were there. This would have been fine except it was late March, and the heat was definitely not needed. However, the real issue occurred on our last morning. We had just spent the weekend enjoying New Orleans, when we were awoken at 7:00  Monday morning by a terrible racket on the roof. I dragged myself out of bed and called the front desk. I was informed that there was "roof work" going on. I assumed that maybe a hole was being patched and we would not be disturbed too much longer. That was not the case. The entire roof was being replaced. A short time later, the front desk called and requested we move our car. No. Lack of planning on the management's part does not constitute an emergency on my part. Of course there was no way we were sleeping any more, but I wasn't about to hurry my preparations to leave. Management then called AGAIN to request that we move our car. I was in the shower and they spoke to my husband, who let them know that check out time was noon, and we would be moving the car when we left the property. When we left the room shortly before noon, the roof workers had to spend several minutes clearing a path, they had removed the entire roof, including roof nails, etc. When I asked the front desk what discount we were going to be offered for ruining our last morning at the property, I was advised that the manager had authorized a $25 discount. When I indicated that I didn't believe that $25 was adequate compensation for being awoken at 7:00 believing that the roof was about to come down on us, I was told that the manager wasn't there but would contact me to discuss the issue, and my credit card hadn't been charged yet. 24 hours pass, no call, and my credit card is charged with only the $25 discount.
    My issue with this situation isn't that the roof had to be replaced. This is New Orleans, it's humid and there are big storms. I also understand that a hotel would want to schedule that type of work on a weekday, on an "off" week. But the solution was so simple, all the management had to do was let us know about the roof work and ask that we move to another building for our last night so we wouldn't be disturbed. And to be offered $25 off when our bill was close to $500 was insulting. We travel to New Orleans once every year or two, but we will not be staying at Prytania again.

    We booked our room through a travel website for two people. I had the understanding we were getting two beds. When we arrived to the room it was ONE BED....and an unexpected friend came along last minute. We thought we would have more than enough room.
    Let's start from the beginning.

    I arrive at the hotel with my bags after a long trip and there is a woman on the phone offering directions. As I stood there staring at her she continued to give me the hold on finger....I kept waiting and 10 minutes later I blurted out "My room is checked in I just need to get into my room" Right when I said that another woman popped out and asked what room. I gave her my room number and one of the other staff members took my bags. As the gentleman was walking me to my room I felt the older woman following me. I was really confused on why. When I knocked on the door I was let in by my friend and I realized we only had ONE BED...I knew we had to figure out something so I asked for the gentleman to get me some extra towels so I can shower (after a 19 hour trip) and we can get this going....As I was going to being in my bags the older woman was at my shoulder and asked me
    "Are you staying here?"
    "Yes, I believe so I replied" she then responded very sassy and said
    "No no I don't think so. ONE of you have to leave."
    I was horrified I was in NEW ORLEANS after a 19 hour trip and I was being told to leave.

    We explained to her we booked a double bed we had no idea why we were in a single and this woman made it seem like we were trying to pull one over on her....We told her we were willing to upgrade and she told us they were booked solid. I was COMPLETELY HORRIFIED. We then asked for at least two hours to figure out what to do, We told her we would know by 7pm.

    LUCKILY I was able to book a room at the MONTELEONE which is LEAPS AND BOUNDS  BETTER HOTEL AND CUSTOMER SERVICE.

    I picked this hotel based on its proximity to everywhere I wanted to be. I really didn't want to be too close to Bourbon Street, as I heard that it was pretty much a non-stop party. I booked the hotel online after reading a few reviews. It wasn't luxurious, but it would be fine.

    We arrived at the hotel early. Super early. I was worried that we'd have to lug our bags around NOLA while waiting for check in. Bummer. Well, the very helpful gentleman at the front desk told us that our room was ready and that we could check in right then! Great!

    We were given keys to the room and directed to it. Now, the way this hotel is set up, you're outside, but then you're not outside. It's a weird setup. You're certainly not in a hallway if you step out of your room. But it's cool.

    The room was small, but cute. I mean, who needs a huge hotel room? We didn't plan to spend that much time in there anyway. I will say that the bathroom could have been a teensy bit bigger. Just a smidge wouldn't have hurt.

    Here's where I'm feeling like a 4 star place went to 3 stars -- the bed. We were supposed to be in a queen sized bed. By the looks of it, this was not a queen sized bed. So, before we got too comfy, I went to the front desk to inquire about it. I was told that the ceilings were very high and that's why it looked small. Ok. I can dig that. Fast forward to later that night when boyfriend and I go to crash. This. was. NOT. a. queen-sized. bed. No way. It was soft and comfortable. But it was certainly a full. I have had a full and I have had a queen. I'm sure this was not a queen. That sort of ticked me off. I thought I was crazy until I happened to be talking to another couple on the street car and they were telling us they stayed at our hotel and they thought that the beds were small. So my feelings were confirmed. Oh well. I love my boyfriend. This just caused me to be closer to him.

    The great thing about these rooms is that you have a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Super convenient!

    This hotel is in the Garden District, where there are many beautiful houses to look at and nice walks to take. If you're not trying to hear a bunch of foolishness, then you should look into staying here.

    I'd recommend this place. The only thing I didn't like was the bed situation, but now that I know, the next time, I'd just opt for a king. Other than that, its close to the street car and super close to several very good restaurants and cute little hangouts.

The gym was awesome I would say that's the best part of the hotel and great option for breakfast! However inside the hotel was humid and extreme small! Out of the three nights I never got my room clean! I will NOT be back

    overnighted at this small family inn on a road trip from Florida to Vegas. what a little gem. free parking is a huge plus in the garden district. just one block from the quaint and historic St Charles trolley that runs straight to the French Quarter. continental breakfast buffet is nice and has what you need. the building is historic and lovingly repurposed. two story loft rooms with 2 queens is great for families and small groups. vey well priced for a nice hotel in the garden district (around $100)

    Location, location, location.

    The rooms are fine, the staff could be iffy at times, but for the Prytania Park, it's all about location. I lived Uptown for years, so I'm used to trekking to parades and relying on porta potties. The thinner crowds and the ability to walk half a block back to refill drinks, add or subtract layers of clothes and use the bathroom mean the Prytania Park is the perfect hotel for Mardi Gras.

    We stayed in a loft room, meant for up to four people. The only complaint I have is that we only had three people in our room and it felt cramped. If I was at the wardrobe, no one could get to the bathroom or out the door. It was fine when we were all stationary, but meant we constantly felt like we were in each other's way when we were getting ready and trying to leave the room. Two of us were downstairs, but there wasn't really a place for two suitcases. Mine was in the wardrobe, but his was in the small space between the bed and the window, meaning he had to step over it at all times.

    The staircase up to the loft is small and spiral - those who don't like heights, have vertigo or aren't so steady would not be able to use it comfortably. I'd worry about someone very inebriated, as well.

    The rest of our party left on Fat Tuesday, but we were staying two more nights. A few months before MG I called and asked if we could move to a single room, as we really did not want to pay the (understandably) high price for a double room when we were no longer sharing it (and the cost). Whomever answered the phone told me that was impossible - on Fat Tuesday they did not have their cleaning staff come in at all, so we would not be able to move to a clean room. They do not turn over the rooms on Fat Tuesday at all. One of our party had a single and I asked to move to their room and asked for some clean pillowcases and towels and was told no. I even suggested they let us stay in the double for the single price, since they weren't turning the room over at all and they'd at least get some money for it. Still no.

    Of course, as we're checking out Fat Tuesday a.m. and moving to another hotel, the front desk was kind of indignant that we were leaving and they insisted they would have turned a room for us. When I recounted the above story, they wanted to know who I'd spoken to. When I pointed out it had happened months ago I was snottily told "Well if you could tell me who told you that, it would be better." I mean, I appreciate that they were upset at improper information being handed out and the loss of money, but it certainly wasn't my fault and I was a bit put off by the reaction we received. I had no reason to make up such information, but they acted as though I was lying and at fault.

    All that taken into account, it was still a great experience. It was so nice to walk 20 steps in the morning, put out our chairs and be able to go back and have breakfast. The closeness of our fridge, clothes (considering it rained a bit every day) and bathroom could not be beat. The price was totally reasonable to be split by two couples for that week. Other than that final encounter, the staff was nice. The place was always clean and there was security to ensure only guests were entering the grounds. I would go again and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay for MG.

    I really enjoyed my stay here! For the lower price, being a little further off from where we mostly hung out (French Quarter, Bourbon Square) was fine. This little hotel met all our needs! The streetcar stop is just a block away, and cabs are easy to call by calling the front desk 10-15 min in advance.

    Our room was a quaint, cute antique-y loft, with a brightly lit and clean interior, cream yellow walls, spacious bathroom and counter space, microwave, and, my favoritest part of all: spiral staircase! with another queen on the top loft. It was perfect for 4 girls ! Oh, and a tv.

    The front desk was very attentive and nice. And the breakfast they had (cereals, oatmeal, pastries, juice, milk, coffee) was simple and got the job done when we had to hurriedly catch our cab for our meetings. I would stay here again :) It was nice being away from the hustle and bustle of French Quarter area for parts of the time.

    I booked the two day stay which included free parking while we were on our five night cruise. Disclosure: I wasn't as impressed as the other reviews. My first impression of the surrounding neighborhood was not good. At first, we attempted to parallel park in what we thought was the front, but then we found the parking lot which was by the check-in office. We arrived around 11 AM, hoping to get an early check-in but instead we waited until the cleaning crew got around to our room. They didn't take into consideration that we were waiting...how do I know? Because I heard the check-in lady tell who she explained to me to be "the person in charge of it" that we are waiting and he didn't even look up at us or acknowledge us. Making a bad first impression of the place, we made our way to the courtyard which had a few chairs, where we watched as they cleaned the first level rooms. I decided to go ahead and get our luggage out and on a cart. The cart was broken but I won't elaborate on that since we couldn't use the cart after learning our room with a loft was on the second floor and they didn't have an elevator. In all of my years of traveling, this is the first place that I've experienced without an elevator. Breakfast consisted of cereals, milk, oj and bagels.
    The short distance to the streetcar earned an extra star from me.

    Adorable! We had such a good stay here. The rooms were quaint and comfy, the price was fair for NOLA and it was within walking distance of the trolley. It's an older hotel but our rooms didn't show age at all. Seriously staying here every time we go back. Loved the charm, the peace and quiet and the convenience. Oh! Free parking which is hard to find in NOLA.

    Location & price will keep this small quaint hotel on my radar. Housekeeping was mediocre and maintenance obviously not aware of some small things that need to be repaired. Based on other reviews knew it could be hit or miss. Loved the location & price if you are looking to stay out of the French quarter & want a more neighborhood feel.

    My husband and I just returned from a 4-night stay at the Prytania Oaks hotel, the sister to the Prytania Park (where the main office is). We loved our stay at this charming hotel and we will definitely return.

    We had a string of bad luck with hotels in the Central Business District and I happened upon this hotel by chance. The rates were reasonable for a king-bedded room (I think I paid $139 for two nights and $179 for the final two nights). The room was on the small size but clean, airy and comfortable. The large bathroom had a powerful shower. Across the patio was the breakfast room where the expanded continental breakfast featured coffee, tea, oj, cereals, instant grits/oatmeal, raisin bread, English muffins, yogurt, fruit cups and waffles.

    And then there is FREE parking!

    If I had to be critical I'd say that the breakfast hours could be extended; it is served from 7-9 am and if you want to sleep in a bit you would miss it.

    Great hotel for it's location- 5 minute walk to the St. Chas trolley stop, various eateries and pubs- especially the Trolley Stop Cafe (yum!); quietness- off the main street; relatively quiet between rooms; 20 minutes to airport-not too far from  the interstate. Friendly staff.

    Hotels are about customer service, and this place treats their customers like the DMV does.  To Dori, the manager, customers are a commodity.  Read the fine print because they will not budge.  There are plenty of other great options in the vicinity.  If this place hopes to stay in business they better start treating their customers with respect.

    This was perfect for a two day road trip through NOLA. My Dad and I shared one of the loft rooms, which was just right. Front desk was helpful, and we were able to take the streetcar 10 minutes to the French Quarter. Nice and quiet, and they set up a cont'l breakfast in the courtyard. One of the few places with free parking. The room could have been a little cleaner, however. Would stay here again. Two nights = $183. Score!

    I would personally give this 4.5 stars. The hotel itself is beautiful and they did a great job making the place look like a place from a 1920s Hollywood Movie. They had free breakfast but we did not try it. We had a problem with the shower and they had a maintenance man come the very next morning. So good response time. I needed to refrigerate some milk and this place did not have any refrigerators but they did let me store it in the hotels refrigerator. The place was clean and the staff was friendly.

    Horrible experience night before last. Apparently an accidental double click on the website booked me 3 rooms when I only need 2 and there was NO understanding on their end at all. Just sorry, you have to pay for a room you aren't using tonight. The general manager, DORI, told my husband she would call us liars if we wrote bad reviews. Wow. Just wow. I want to just tell you all I very rarely write anything bad about a business because I am very understanding, but this is sad. Read all these responses to the terrible reviews and let the words and her attitude sink in before you stay at this place. I would have rather paid $40 somewhere else for parking than be stuck paying $160 more dollars for a room that was never needed to begin in. The fact that she didn't believe we only needed two rooms means she just thinks we were lying. She could have at least been kind and understanding and we didn't even get that. We will NEVER stay again, nor recommend it as we have in the past. I take back all the good reviews I wrote after this experience. Incredibly unprofessional, rude, and unnecessary. I stay in hotels 2-5 times a month and have for years. Never have i experienced such a lack of understanding for an honest mistake. I know she will respond to this and shift the blame to me, her past customer, and that is unnecessary because I admit that it is humanly possible to click a button twice on the INTERNET and have it charge me twice. So, Dori, when you read this you don't have to reply and throw the blame back at me like you do with all the other people who have anything negative to say about your awful customer service. I understand the policies but all hotels have policies and if people accidentally book the same room twice they get shown respect and understanding. To Dori - get a heart, please. Show some kindness and empathy in a world that already has enough snakes.

    On top of everything else, right now Prytania Park Hotel has over $1400 in pre-authorizations and charges holding up ALL of my money. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL.

    Very affordable, free parking, breakfast and WIFI.  The room was clean and comfortable.  
    ... That said, some people may not appreciate the layout: loft-style 2nd bedroom with VERY narrow winding spiral stairs that I would not feel comfortable with if I had small/hyper children or if I had any physical disability.  For our needs, it was sufficient, however.
    It's a small establishment, lots of character, not a lot of frills, (but I am not looking for 5-star frills at 100.00 per-night rate).
    A nice addition is the fridge and microwave in the room. The location is pretty much perfect for nightlife and daytime shopping, sightseeing, etc.
    I would not hesitate to come back if was in this area again.

    You have to know what you get and do not get.

    First, the internet seldom worked. I had to take the laptop to Starbucks, worked fine.  Not at this hotel. No biggie, but it is something you don't get.

    No frig in the room. No biggie, but it is something you don't get.

    To get heat, you had to call the office. If someone was there, a bit of heat. No biggie, but it is something you don't get. I did see other rooms with what appeared to be wall shaker a/c units.

    3 story hotel, no elevator.No biggie, but it is something you don't get.

    No covered walks/stairs to our rooms.No biggie, but it is something you don't get.

    The "breakfast " was outdoors in 40 degree weather. have to schelp the coffee and cereal to the room up the stairs, or freeze.  No biggie, but it is something you don't get.

    The bath was small. about 5 by 5. The room toilet as well as the lobby facility were about 13 inches off the floor, so if you have any handicap, like old age,  bad back, bad knee, or the like, avoid this place.

    The wall electrical receptical was an extension coard tacked to the baseboard, under the door threshhold. eheeee!

    The "craftsmen" who built our room were limited to a chainsaw and a 2 lb sledge hammer.

    The pluses include a lotta hot water, good location, free parking, and generally, clean.

    You have to know what you get and do not get. This place is the equilivant of a Motel 5.5.

    We loved this cute older hotel, it has charm & personality to spare.  The property consists of four wings, all converted buildings of varying vintages (the oldest being nearly two centuries old) connected by some charming little patios & breezeways.  As a result, there's no "standard" room, they are all a little different.  They are also kind of small, but who spends a ton of time in the room anyway?  Not the most up-to-date amenities -- the older rooms don't have a mini-fridge, but the loft rooms do.  Still, a decent bed & a clean bathroom are about all I really require.

    The very best thing is the LOCATION.  Steps to the St. Charles trolley, which will take you straight to Bourbon Street or connect you to the Canal line.  They also have a continental breakfast (which wasn't a big deal -- coffee & danish & bagels) and free parking (which was, in fact, a supremely big deal.  Most hotels in the area charge you a pretty hefty fee for parking, if it's even available.)  The staff was also quite nice to us & helpful when my sister had to call them to sort out a credit-card mixup.

    If you prefer a cookie-cutter corporate standard property, this isn't the place for you.  We loved it, though, and would be happy to stay again.

    Not worth the money! For a cheaper price, you can stay in cleaner more centrally located place. There were gaps/cracks in the door making it drafty and noisy. Each time anyone went up or down the stairs or past the room, it was heard loud and clear while trying to sleep. The outlets are loose, so it difficult to charge or plug anything in. The room was not ready on time and wasn't even very clean when they finished. Some things had been left behind by previous guests that were not cleaned out, and the refrigerator smelled awful. The Internet rarely worked. If you notice on trip advisor that all responses by the hotel show no apologizes, and often deflect the blame on the guest. This is the same experience you'll have when you deal with management if you choose to stay here.

    My husband and I reserved a room at the Prytania Park so we could enjoy a kid-free night during trip to see his family in Louisiana over the Thanksgiving holiday. Unfortunately, he and I got either a nasty stomach bug or food poisoning on the drive south from Kansas. We didn't feel like going through with our outing to New Orleans and attempted to cancel the reservation the day prior to check in. We knew the hotel's policy stated that cancellations had to be made 48 hours prior to check in, but we thought the hotel management would make an exception or change a lesser penalty given our unforeseen circumstances. Turns out we were wrong.

    The hotel's manager, Dorie, subjected us to a very personal, very lengthy line of questioning regarding our illnesses and then attempted to diagnose our conditions over the phone. She felt that since food poisoning or stomach bugs usually last about 24 hours, we should feel like coming to New Orleans. Further, she said since it might be food poisoning and therefore not contagious, she wasn't concerned about the welfare of her staff or other guests in the hotel. In a nutshell, she accused us of lying and refused to cancel the reservation without "medical documentation." Dorie did offer us a larger room on another night, but that didn't fit with our family obligations or travel plans.

    Yes, this hotel is located in a great area and it's rates are comparatively inexpensive. However, the hotel's staff doesn't display the grace or gentility that makes the people of New Orleans such wonderful hosts to visitors. According to the New Orleans Convention and Visitor's Bureau, there are more than 37,000 hotel rooms in the metro area. I would suggest selecting another property to ensure you have an experience that's more fitting with the city's legendary hospitality.

    I was there last Labor Day weekend and I enjoyed my stay, but the architecture was a little weird, but hey that's New Orleans! My room was very comfortable and very close to the trolly line! I'm going back again!

    3.5 stars...pretty nice, unique spot in a nice location. Hotel has a really neat layout with a small, open courtyard and bamboo growing, giving a "secret garden" type of a feel to it. We checked into a contemporary queen, and it's much smaller than the pictures seem. It has a very narrow spiral staircase that led up to twin beds in an attic/loft like room that overlooks the queen bed. The staircase isn't very easy to get up and down, so I'd avoid if you have trouble getting around physically. Mattresses aren't terribly comfortable, and you have to crank the AC to the coldest setting in order for the air to reach upstairs, it was sweltering up there when we initially checked in. Bathroom is so small it's hard to shut the door. It's not a great space to just hangout in and watch TV (TV is really small), but it's NOLA so you should be out and about exploring. It's in a pretty neighborhood with a little park nearby and good brunch spots. The bars like Avenues and the Blind Pelican were fun and walkable. Also right next to the streetcar that can get you into Bourbon Street in about 15 minutes for $1.25. Staff wasn't overly friendly nor were they unpleasant, all in all a pretty good experience.

    The quaint little hotel was located in the Garden District. I was pleasantly surprised during my stay here. The room was nice, clean, and quiet. The room came with a mini fridge, microwave oven, and a coffee maker.

    I picked this place because it was located very far away from all of the craziness of Bourbon Street. It was conveniently located to a lot of restaurants on St. Charles Avenue. They served a complimentary breakfast each morning. If the wild party scene isn't your thing, you might want to stay here instead of the French Quarter.

    After spending forever looking for a room I finally found this place and it seemed decent so I booked it.  Then I read the Yelp reviews and got nervous.  Too many Yelpers have had run in with the manager and I find that (still) worrisome.  However, my stay was uneventful in  the best way possible and the price was great! Check in and check out were super easy and the staff was welcoming.

    The room had exposed brick wall, high ceilings, a ceiling fan, large, bright window into the courtyard, tv, microwave, free wifi that worked just fine, and a bathroom with new fixtures.  The room was clean and cozy with a large and super comfy bed.  My own gripe was that the only place in which I could plug in my phone was at the microwave where there was a power strip.  There is a breakfast buffet in the courtyard which I suppose in cold weather wouldn't be much fun but given the layout, I don't see where else they would put it.  Regardless, I was happy for some breakfast and hot coffee.

    I cannot complain about the noise.  When I was in the bathroom I could easily hear my neighbors but once I went into the sleeping area I couldn't hear anyone.  The building is old so of course it creeks and you can hear people walking around above your head.  Big deal!  You want to the Ritz, go stay there but I was happy in this historic building.  I liked that I could walk right out of my room and find a bench and table in a quiet area in which to relax.  The hotel is right near Walgreens and the trolly and it is in a nice, quiet area.  I loved walking around the French Quarter all day and I was just as happy to come home to a quiet, cozy spot the sleep.  I'm tempted to stay here again.

    Just checked out of this hotel after staying a week. Could not have hoped for a better location. One block from the street car. Magazine, Garden District and French Quarter all easily accessible by street car, bus, or even by walking if you want. Some nights we ended up staying in the neighborhood as there are some great little spots a block away.

    Rooms were clean and quiet, no problem with noise, wi-fi worked, depending on your location in the hotel there were two wifi locations to jump between to get best hook up. Beds were super comfortable. We stayed in two different rooms (our choice, decided to upgrade and better room wasn't available until a few nights into our stay).

    Bottom line, great location, nice hotel, great price! Would definitely stay again.

    You can't go wrong here, so long as you like smaller boutique hotels. This is NOT a Hilton or Marriott. The  hotel is old, with old trees and vines interspersed between the walkways. The rooms are well kept up, though the tile and bathrooms are a little dated. Breakfast is coffee and yogurt and a toaster for the English muffin. The lobby is small.  The staff are friendly and happy. Parking is safe and free.

    When we stay we usually have kids with us, so we get the room with the loft. Kids go upstairs to their bed, we stay downstairs in ours. Extremely convenient for all of us.
