Hotel Peter & Paul is an absolute GEM!!! The moment I saw the venue I knew that is would be the perfect place to get married, and I was not wrong! The atmosphere feels so romantic and it really made our wedding such a special experience for all of our guests. The space is so gorgeous that we really did not need to worry about decorating since Peter & Paul is charming and stylish on its own. The on location hotel was a major plus for our out of town guests. It looks just like the photos on their website, but even better to experience in person.
Nathalie is the absolute best and was very patient and helpful navigating the planning process with us. Our venue selection was hands down my favorite part of our wedding celebration. 10/10 would do it again.Sent on 12/22/2020

Exceptional in every way
Hotel Peter & Paul is one of the most special places that I have ever been to, and I could not recommend it more highly for a wedding, a special event, or hotel stay.Sent on 01/04/2021
The space itself is thoughtfully designed and historic. The buildings are original, each piece of furniture carefully chosen, each space is well-curated. The hotel is both beautiful and comfortable, it strikes an amazing balance of being both peaceful and luxurious. We didn't feel the need to add any additional florals or decor for our event, the space itself was enough.
My husband and I first booked this hotel for our wedding reception sight unseen (we were wedding planning from NYC), and then we worked with the HPP team to re-book our wedding due to the pandemic. The HPP team is so easy to work with, flexible, creative, supportive, and personable. We planned a wedding together during the most uncertain of times and the team came to us with solutions on how to make things work given the complex and changing restrictions at the time. They were good to us while maintaining their own professional and safety standards. They were extremely detailed and attentive to ours/our guests' needs. It was not an easy time to be planning a wedding, but it was a joy to work with them throughout.
Needless to say we were able to have the perfect wedding, during a pandemic, and felt we didn't have to sacrifice a thing because HPP was there for us. Thank you so much HPP for existing!

Wonderful Wedding Venue
As a local NOLA wedding planner, I had the honor of planning a wedding at Hotel Peter & Paul for a couple in October of 2019. The venue was new as an event space and already the staff was very organized and professional- ultimately, they impressively had their stuff together! They were extremely responsive and easy to work with. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. Highly recommend and hope to be back with many more couples in the future!
