Fantastic stay.
Every single person at this hotel was friendly and awesome. The gentleman at the door were extremely helpful with our valet, luggage, and giving us directions if needed. Vera at the counter actually found us a room ready at 11:30 so we could put our stuff upstairs and get to the Saints game. Bartender made some awesome drinks in the lobby bar. We went to a wedding and came back and hung out at the rooftop bar. Room was great and quiet.

My husband and I love the Pontchartrain Hotel unfortunately our room had a water leak in the closet and our clothes got wet. And the room did not have enough soap for the shower and the sink which we got from the front desk. This is not indicative of the hotel or it's service and everyone has an off day.

6/10 Good

amazing staff but poor amenities…
Nice location. Check in staff was great and service oriented as was valet. Just a few things….only 3 towels (regular size not bath sheets) in room for two people. Soap was teenie and difficult to hold. No trash can in bathroom. No room service. Ordered from jack rose and brought up to room and $150 meal felt like we were eating a happy meal. No plates, no real cutlery - just a box.
