Dec. 18, 2014 : My Australian husband and I stayed at the Provincial for 8 nights, leaving three days ago. It was our first time to New Orleans and after a shifty Air BnB experience in New York, a real hotel with a front desk and real people was a joy! This hotel is fantastic. From the front desk staff who greet you warmly, to the cozy, spacious and super quiet room with a welcoming ambience, the free breakfast and cocktail bar that serves lethal cocktails with a lively banter (some of the guests we met there were incredibly entertaining, as are the two bar staff), they make you feel like family. Nothing is a problem, from helping to book tickets to tours, or flagging down a horse and buggy to get you around the French Quarter. Speaking of which ... Location, location. We walked and walked and walked, but nothing beat the terrific location of the Provincial. Around the corner from Frenchman St, with its glorious music and food, and Jackson Square in the other direction. It's perfect. Forget its official 3 star rating. That's there because they don't have room service. You don't need it here. If you want that, book into one of those classy high-end 5 star places where you get a lot of attitood with your huge bill. When you're finished for the day, grab one of those famous New Orleans cocktails at the Provincial and head out to the lovely courtyard with your drink. You won't be there long before a staff member asks you if you'd like another one, ma'am? Say yes, y'all. Say yes. We won't stay anywhere else but the Provincial when we return to the Big Easy. It opens its arms to travellers in the warmest way. What else do you need?
Dec. 16, 2014 : The hotel was excellent with great service. The courtyard is so 'French Quarter' providing an experience you cannot get from a chain. I read in the courtyard and socialized with our neighbors. The location works well with easy access to whatever you want to do. Our room was immaculate and provided an authentic experience. The staff was able to please my wife and I. We are not easy to make happy and the hotel staff accomplished this with ease! We will definitely return.
Dec. 16, 2014 : This was close enough to everything we wanted to see and do yet far enough away to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet from the hubbub and crowds of New Orleans. We also chose this hotel to avoid having to park on the street. Upon arrival, everyone was very friendly and courteous. The rooms were cute, quaint and very clean. The beds were absolutely the most comfortable hotel bed we have ever slept in. The only complaint we could say we had was more with the other guests not being hospitable by allowing their doors to slam very early in the morning. (You couldn't hear through the walls which was nice, just the slamming of the doors). Continental breakfast was okay, your typical pastry, bagel and cereal spread. To us we thrive on great service and comfortableness and therefore we would definitely stay there again!
Dec. 15, 2014 : We stayed one night at the hotel and were very pleased. The staff were friendly and helpful. I've read a lot of reviews about parking costs and I think they're rates were comparable or a little less than other hotels I looked at. We were allowed to check in early which was great after a long drive!
Dec. 8, 2014 : The Provincial Hotel is our favorite for over twenty years. The welcome is always warm, very convenient to visit all the tourist places. Parking is protected and you can see his car, not like in the larger hotels. Breakfast is included, but what I like is to go to the Golden Crescent which is ten steps.
Dec. 8, 2014 : yes ive been to French quarter a couple of times now and............hands down your hurricane is the best ive had so far in new orleans
Dec. 8, 2014 : Another calorie filled trip to the Workboat Show. As usual the service was great and the hotel was beautiful. The best location in the French Quarter. It has been a while since we went home to New Orleans. Due to business we haven't had the chance to stay at the Provincial for a couple of years. It was good to be home. The changes in New Orleans are remarkable. It just keeps getting better.
Dec. 8, 2014 : The staff was super friendly! We got there very late because our flight was delayed and the Concierge and Valet were still up and ready to help in every way! The staff was great! The room was a nice taste of history! Great location! Would definitely go back and stay!
Dec. 5, 2014 : I will definitely come back and stay here for the next stay at New Orleans! The hotel room was really clean and workers were very nice and friendly. And the best thing about this hotel is the location where you are able to visit a number of places around french quarter just by walking with some alchols!
Dec. 5, 2014 : My sister was afraid to climb the stairs so we were upgraded to a suite by the beautiful courtyard at no charge! The manager also picked up some pastries for her... The porter and manager were so gracious. The desk clerk was efficient and pleasant. We were delighted with the location and history of the hotel. I would highly recommend and will come back! Thank You Provential staff for making our stay so comfortable... Margaret Roberts
Dec. 3, 2014 : Fabulous location! And wonderful staff!
Nov. 25, 2014 : The Hotel Prvincial is a great representative of New Orleans. It is not a hotel chain where every property is stylized; but it is locally owned and operated. In the south, that means personal care those registered there. Our room was quite large, finished for you to remember the original deocor. But at the same time, good air conditioning, WiFi, and other amenities expected by today's traveler. Its location is close to the French Quarter, but not so close as to be disturbed by late night reveliers. Only two block away you will find the street car that runs along the river all the way to downtown, or as far as the New Orleans Convention Center.
Nov. 24, 2014 : So beautiful and so "New Orleans"- the courtyard is picturesque, the rooms clean and roomy (and the bed, comfy!). The concierge staff were incredibly helpful. Did I mention-- love the location! In the quarter but not too busy and nutty. Plus it just a few dorrs down form one of my favorite restaurants. I can NOT say enough good things about my stay. I WILL go back (and can NOT wait!)
Nov. 19, 2014 : So much character in this hotel, one of our favorite places to stay! We had a beautiful suite which was perfect for traveling with our young son. Staff all very friendly and welcoming! Located within walking distance of the riverfront streetcar which was a lot of fun to ride with our son.
Nov. 11, 2014 : We chose The Provincial because of its location and other reviews, and wasn't disappointed on our choice! All of the French Quarter is in easy walking distance! The rooms are very nice and the Staff was always very accommodating! We had a balcony overlooking the street and loved it!
