Price From $159
'Hood The Central Business District, on the southwestern edge of the French Quarter. Bourbon Street is a five-minute walk away, as is the New Orleans Arena, a concert venue.
The Gist The lobby of Le Pavillon, built in 1907, houses artifacts from the Louis XV era, including a pair of bronze cherubs on marble pedestals sculpted by Parisian artist DePatour. Antique furnishings in the 226 guest rooms add to the old-world New Orleans charm. Online reviewers praise the hotel's longtime staff - saying Southern gentility is still alive and well - and the quiet nights that come with staying a few blocks from the French Quarter's pounding heart. A heated rooftop pool is an additional perk.
Free Wi-Fi? Yes.
Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.
Details Doubles from $159, suites from $229. Some packages include breakfast and complimentary parking.
Thanks for Sharing Reader Tisha Goble said Le Pavillon is her favorite property in the Crescent City: "We go to New Orleans every December. This hotel is superb (and even said to be haunted), and we love it. It's beautifully decorated for the holidays and offers peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with milk and hot chocolate each evening in the lobby. That was fun!"
