The hotel is located within walking distance from the French Quarter. They have parking for $35 per night. They will take your keys and take your car to a secure location. Check in was quick. The hotel lobby is beautiful. The room (with window) was comfortable but a bit outdated. Like putting the mini fridge on top of a dresser and having a flat screen tv hanging on the wall (way up). The rooms can be fixed up and still maintain that boutique hotel charm.

This is a small hotel in a beautiful building, beautifully furnished. It's in a good location. The bed was comfortable. That's the end of the positives, unfortunately. The first, and huge turnoff, was Troy giving me a power sell on tours when I checked in, even going so far as to tell me that I only had until 8:30 p.m. to decide. It's true there's a Keurig in the lobby, but only with the chemical "creamer" and with fruit flies circling the area. The windowless room was like a coffin, nothi... Read more

We stayed in April and the people on the desk are great. Robert was wonderful, so friendly and helpful. A shout out to the person on nights too, very friendly. The rooms are very clean and bright. We had a fridge and a safe but you can get coffee downstairs in the lobby. The Ruby Slipper is close for breakfast or lunch and the hotel is in a good location. It's a short cab ride or walk to Bourbon Street or other tourist spots. it just has the old New Orleans charm that I love. Thanks!! I

My mother and I took a belated mother's day trip to New Orleans and after much research we decided to stay at the Pelham. I couldn't find a bad review and now I see why. The Pelham had all of the charming comforts of a boutique hotel, almost as if you were staying in someone's old, beautiful house. We did request an exterior room, as I wanted to have windows, so if that is important to you just make sure that is what you're booking. We had two insanely comfy, four-poster beds and we enjoyed comi... Read more

We stayed at the Pelham for two nights and it was wonderful. The room was so incredibly beautiful that it kind of look our breath away. The room was decorated with the most amazing and original dog paintings and the bed was gigantic! Troy checked us in who was just an absolute delight and so friendly and helpful. Just a ten minute walk to the French Quarter/Frenchmen Street and just off Canal Street. We walked everywhere. Great value for money.

The hotel is in a a great location; it is within walking distance of the french quarter and the river walk and you don't have to deal with the noise and traffic of the french quarter. The hotel has a very quaint appeal, but the rooms are small and the closet only opens three quarters because the bed is positioned right in front of the closet. The room was also freezing because there was no control of the temperature on the thermostat; it was either on or off. There is no full-length mirror in th... Read more

We just returned from New Orleans and I couldn't wait to tell about this classic hotel! The room was outstanding....very clean and had everything we needed. The location is very convenient...just a short walk to the trolley and close to Harrah's if you are interested. The staff was amazing. Troy was eager to recommend tours, dining suggestions and even provided discount coupons. Housekeeping staff was delightful. Having breakfast next door at The Ruby Slipper is a must!! We will return soon!

We decided on The Pelham after reading several reviews, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Even though the hotel is small, it has a lot of character. Our room had two queen beds, very comfortable and good pillows! I will say that our phone chargers didn't stay in the outlets too well.. not sure exactly why, but it didn't bother us!

I was pleasantly surprised to find this cute boutique hotel close to most of the attractions in NOLA. It is perfectly located within walking distance to French Quarter and Bourbon Street but at the same time away from the crowd and loud noise as well. There are unlimited restaurant options and cafes too. The public transport is one block away. The staff was good and so were the rooms as well. However would recommend to get a room with window.

I was visiting New Orleans during the July 4th/Essence festival weekend so hotel prices were jacked up! I was going to stay across the street at the Best Western, but found a lower price with the Pelham at the last minute. Initially, I was little concerned about the size of my room and the fact that it had no windows. However once I saw my room, it was cool. A room with a window wouldn't have had a good view anyway. Plus no window, meant better sleep. lol The rooms weren't the most modern, li... Read more

I got a room with no window, but that's not that bad. The room and the bathroom are quite spacious. The bed is big, soft and comfortable, I fell asleep almost immediately after my head touched pillows :) The staffs are very nice. The hotel is next to Ruby's slipper, you can have breakfast there. And it's also close to the French Quarter, just about 5-10 minutes walk. I would recommend this hotel.

It was on a quiet street just a block from Canal St. There was a store close. The Pelham was also close to many great restaurants. The Ruby Slipper shares a building with The Pelham. Mother's is just a few blocks away also. The price for this hotel was also reasonable!

I would definitely stay here only complaint was the air conditioner (reason for 4 stars and not 5). The room was set up where it blew on our faces and we all felt kind of crappy in the morning.

Hotels in NOLA can be a crapshoot. You want to be close to the action, but not be bothered by the noise (& debauchery) of it when you want to sleep.

The Pelham is an old building with 18 ft ceilings. Beds are very comfortable but also very high. Location is great. Can walk to Riverwalk and trolley stops.

As first timers in New Orleans we wanted a hotel that was central, comfortable and not too noisy. The Pelham ticked all of these boxes. The room was spacious, the bathroom a good size and the location great. The foyer was tiny but I didn't think that this detracted from the hotel at all. The entrance into the Ruby Slipper through the foyer was great as you didn't have to line up on the footpath outside. If I returned to New Orleans again I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
