This hotel provides an excellent value for the money. The rooms are really nice (even nicer than on the website), the location in the Garden District is good, the streetcar stop for the St. Charles line is just one block away. This makes The Prytania Oaks in my view a much better choice than one of the boring regular hotel chains.
Hotel room had huge sq. footage - had a couch and table in addition to queen beds. It was also very quiet, had a good night sleep compared to other parts of downtown New Orleans. With the crazy prices for hotels in New Orleans you can say it was an fairly decent deal, but in other cities I'd say it's a bit overpriced for what you get. The hotel staff was friendly and quickly efficient, service itself was fine, but they were very unprofessional looking - shirts were stained, untucked - and they were talking with each other about non-hotel business in front of customers. Even for a no-thrills hotel, I was surprised by the overall lack of presentation.
Helpful staff at check in and after; nice accommodations and room features for us given we had an infant with us--refrigerator with freezer compartment, microwave, brought us a pack and play for our infant; and location is nice as the street car is on the street.
The breakfasts were very good (help yourself ... but lots of choice) and the outdoor area within the bed and breakfast ground was great. The bed was very comfortable and the room very nice and clean. The area around the hotel was run down ... close to the Interstate highway. We had an inside room and did not hear the traffic noise, but had to walk under the highways to get to the French Quarter. The room was not well noise insulated and everyone that walked by the room sounded as if they were in the room ... bad when people walked by early in the morning with noisy shoes (heels on the wooden floor) and talked. When people were quiet walking by the room, it was really nice and quiet and a lovely place to stay.
Me an my wife went there for our honeymoon and we loved it. Great staff great location, breakfast was great as well. The room was just what we needed, it overlooked the pool which was amazing as well. N/A
The inn is decorated lovingly and in keeping with the style of the building.The inn has secure off road parking and the pool area is truely exceptional.The area is covered with tropical plants and a great deal of thought and effort has gone into its construction.The pool area is clothing optional which we enjoyed and so it seemed did all the other guests.A great location and central to everything no car needed.
Location and staff were excellent.
Unique lodging in eclectic part of city near main attractions
Everything! Staff was great, pool was amazing. Cute and comfy!
wonderful room and staff let me print out about 25 pages for free.
I loved the room. 2 queen sized beds suited my comfort level. The bathroom was small, but it is a hotel-- at one time it probably had round seat toilets. They should consider finding low water flush round seaters. It could use some upgrading but I didn't find any of the problems I read of in other reviews. Would not walk at night alone here-- but that goes for all of New Orleans for the most part, I did used to live in nola. Oh, this room did not have a flat screen lcd tv. Booking says all rooms have one-- but 234 does not. The lady behind the counter was a pleasure talking to her. Black lady, but can't remember her name. I didn't find much I did not like. Only upgrade the counter tops and lavatory. The lavatory spout is not supposed to swivel.
I have never stayed in a hotel with a loft style second bed.
Room was fine, especially for the price. Location was great, just a block or so from St. Charles Streetcar line. Several restaurants nearby. Lots of interesting Garden District within easy walking distance. AC unit leaked and kept the carpet musty. Not unbearable, but needs attention. We told the desk clerk, but nothing was done. Not a big deal.
The staff there was friendly and very helpful, seemed eager to assist with all my request and questions. My room was actually available a little earlier than what was expected. Hotel is located in a good location with a street car stop practically in front of the hotel (once you walk up to the corner). They even offer streetcar tickets at the front desk. Also, you can't beat the free parking! Even seen a security guard patrolling parking lot at night. Would highly recommend staying there. I know I will next time I visit!
The staff was wonderful! When my partner had trouble with the stairs, they moved us to the first floor to accomodate his illness. Every time the owner saw me hauling something into the building, he offered to carry it for me himself. Breakfast was disappointing - standard continental fare. There are great shops nearby that sell homemade bagels and dougnuts, but they opt for Sam's Club instead. I'd rather see them offer something unique and local than what I can buy for myself at home.

Location for Mardi Gras. Nice hostess. Basement room one star. No nightstands, pillows approximately same age as building. No place to sit and talk in room. Parking on street. no phone, Cont. breakfast not adequate. Doubt AC will suffice in summer. Send inspector before rating.
Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Bed was beyond comfortable and the tub alone was worth the stay.

The mansion was beautiful and is well kept. It is an amazing historical landmark. The area is safe and beautiful as well. The staff was very nice. The room we stayed in was very small. It was difficult to move from one side to the other. The bathroom did not have a shower but a claw foot small tub..tall people do not fit. The breakfast was terrible..fruit loops, spoiled milk and 3 day old danishes.
El precio era bueno. wifi bueno. Agua caliente. El personal es agradable. A poca distancia a pie de muchos restaurantes La conexión wifi era 4 dólares El aparcamiento 5 dólares El colchón era horrible en el edificio #1, la habitación #9. Para que lo sepan
Buen hostal, buenas instalaciones. Ubicación en un distrito con jardines.
Very comfortable "hostel" Breakfast available Room sizes varied to accommodate your group Was able to check in the next morning after arriving at midnight. Fantastic location, great spaces to relax Bring your own bar soap/toiletries
The people and location were amazing. This place was home and for a brief stay I felt like I had family there.
