We have stayed in the Maritime building before and it is wonderful. The staff is very accommodating and welcoming.
However, I feel very mislead and fooled by Stay Alfred. They showed photos of a great apartment, but when we arrived it was not as pictured. The photos show big bay windows w lots of light- we faced a building. It always felt like it was nighttime, even in the afternoon as no light came through. The photos show large bedrooms- in this unit you could barely move around the bed. We needed to use a crib for our 2 year old, and it had to literally squeeze into our room. The set up was strange- the master had the queen bed and bathroom and the guest room had the king. Very inconvenient. The photos show a large kitchen- we could not fit two ppl in there so we could barely use it. We had scheduled a locally famous chef to cook dinner in house for our group and once I arrived I realized we could not accommodate this. We had to cancel the chef.
Besides not being the unit pictured- there were only 4 towels. With a washer/dryer that takes 5 hours, that doesn't work. There was also not enough plates/cups/glasses. We had to run the dishwasher every night. The shower was also awful- no hot water and no pressure. The trash goes out in the middle of the night and is loud AF for at least 30 minutes.
I have nothing good to say about the unit where we stayed. I feel like there was a bait and switch. I wish I would have read the other reviews, they all sound very similar.
That's a bummer be I have stayed in this building before and it was a wonderful experience. Maybe Stay Alfred is the problem.
One of the reasons we selected this property was the rooftop pool option. Upon arrival we went up to the 11th floor to check it out.....only to find a very dirty pool with "things" swimming in it....did not look like it had been cared for in a few days. Very disappointing. I spoke to the front desk person, as well as, emailed and spoke to S.A. about this concern..but the pool was in the same condition the whole week. We had our infant Grandson with us and wanted to use this with him.
When we got to the room we had 3 lightbulbs burnt out. The staff was able to change one, but the other two were "on order". These were replaced the day before we left. One was over the island in the kitchen and the other over the sink in the bathroom. Not very convenient the whole week.
We requested to be on a "higher floor" and Perry told us we should be able to get on the 7th floor. We ended up on the 3rd floor. The garbage is taken care of everyday at about 3:30am and is VERY LOUD for about 20 - 25 minutes.
The washer and dryer provided in the room was not working properly the entire week. The dryer would go for more than 2 hours and the cloths would not be dry. We contacted S.A. and they said someone would be in to look at.....no one came....
The water temperature in the shower is very inconsistent.....hot one second....cold the other...
On the positive side....the place is in a great location if you are wanting to be close to the French Quarter! Easy to get around and can be anywhere in the quarter quickly. The front desk guys are great! Very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. We loved that the property had a play pen provided.....the beds were very comfortable and slept well. We had a rental car and had parking included....parking was easy in and out for the entire week.
The property was great for socializing, playing cards, and cooking. We were able to cook a couple meals during the week as well. But N.O. food is amazing!!
Smaller than on pictures, was a bit disapointing but location is good concierge very friendly and helped us a lot!
Beds were comfortable, property was as advertised, building employees and stay Alfred employees were cheerful and helpful, location was fabulous, and rooftop ammenieites were nice. We couldn't connect to wifi after day 1 though, and that was a bummer. Overall, a great stay though, and I would definitely recommend it to others.
It worked out perfectly for our group of five. The room was very clean and modern looking. It would have been a 5/5 however the hot tub was not heating properly and the jets didn't turn on when we used it. For the price, this was excellent!
The two bedroom apartment is perfect for a vacation in New Orleans. Just off the St. Charles street car line and a block and a half from Canal St., it provides easy access to the French Quarter and the best restaurants in the central business district. The unit is quiet, spacious, modern, and comfortably furnished. The kitchen has updated appliances, but could be better stocked with supplies for cooking and meal preparation. The combination washer/dryer works well.
Access to the unit was easy and a twenty-four hour staffed lobby is another plus.
I would certainly try to book this unit if I were returning to New Orleans for a long weekend or an extended stay.
Live like a local while you stay at our luxurious Maritime property! A few steps from the lobby will put you in the middle of downtown New Orleans’ most legendary locales, including its best shops, restaurants, museums, and art galleries. The Maritime property is an excellent choice for the perfect New Orleans vacation!
Our fabulous Maritime property is ideally located a block from the famous French Quarter, on the intersection of Common and Carondelet. Experience the excitement of New Orleans and return to the quiet and comfort of our elegant accommodations.
