The Hotel St. Ann/ Marie Antoinette Hotel dates back at least as far as 1911. The hotel is one of the more historic locations in the French Quarter. It is located near Bourbon Street and other major attractions of New Orleans. Like many of the hotels in the French Quart St. Ann/ Marie provides an enclosed courtyard, with French doors leading out to the area. The style of the hotel is French provincial with brick walls. The doorways are arched as are some of the windows. Wrought iron has been used on the exterior in several places especially for the balconies.
The courtyard is filled with flowering plants and trees. There is also alfresco dining, statues, and fountains to liven up the area. The interior of the hotel rooms are more modern with wall paper borders, soft yellows and tans, and bright comforters. The rooms are filled with wood furniture for comfort, as well as red carpet. Many of the rooms have balconies as well as couches. At St. Ann/ Marie there are suites, double beds, and king sized beds. Overall there are 60 guest rooms. Each is an individual design, so the coloring of the bed spreads and carpet will differ. The bathrooms feature marble and tile. There are ironing boards, cable television, bathroom amenities, and internet services in the rooms.
Other services at the hotel include an outdoor swimming pool, room service, concierge service, and business meeting rooms. There are ten rooms for business meetings totaling 7,000 square feet.
