A Great Option for the French Quarter
Posted Nov 1, 2016
Hotels in the French Quarter are pricey, they feature small rooms and you don't typically get the same level of service you'd find outside the Quarter... but their location makes up for a lot of it because it cuts down on all that walking!
Hotel Mazarin is a nice step up from most of the FQ hotels, though. It's not the overly-sterile "corporate contemporary" look you find in so many places nowadays. Instead, it has local art, unique design and a really cool layout - LOVE that courtyard!
The staff were a bit disappointing this time (compared to my last visit). They were friendly enough, but they didn't go out of their way to make their guests feel special either. I was particularly disappointed since I booked through Expedia that nobody even mentioned my +Gold status or the extras that are supposed to come with it. Hotel Mazarin is supposed to be a +VIP hotel for Expedia, but all of that was ignored. I also had a problem with my TV that was never fixed... all little things, but - for the money you're spending - worth mentioning.
The rooms were lovely, their hot breakfast was delicious and their location is prime. I even loved the showers!
All in all, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great "local-feel" hotel in the French Quarter.
