Stylish hotel with professional staff
Several recent guests encountered issues with making reservations

The standard rooms at Le Pavillon are like elegant works of art with handmade draperies, hand-carved armoires and plush linens. The deluxe rooms even have black marble bathrooms. But some guests say that it’s the lobby that is the real showpiece of this Central Business District property. There, you'll find plenty of fine art, lots of antique furniture and a beautiful Czechoslovakian crystal chandelier. Consider spending a few moments there in the evenings, when the staff hands out complimentary peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to its patrons on silver platters. Recent guests say they liked the French style of the hotel and the professional service, while others mentioned that they experienced reservation problems.

You'll step back in time to old New Orleans as you enter the luxurious lobby, which has lavish French provincial décor. In contrast, the varying-size guest rooms have a monotone, contemporary design.

AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



One's chin may rise a centimeter or two when entering Le Pavillon's soaring lobby, with crystal chandeliers overhead, plush Oriental rugs underfoot, enormous marble pillars, and ornate carved ceilings.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



This upscale, mid-sized hotel in the Central Business District (CBD) drips with opulence, from the chandeliers to the marble floors in the entranceway to the large oil paintings.
