No, we finished renovations before the new year festivities. Do keep in mind that Bourbon street has construction so if you are driving be mindful of that while driving to the property as this can cause minor traffic issues.

Let me comment to these questions since I mentioned their construction in my review. We made our reservations months before the hotel had planned their construction so there was no mention of it at that time. When we checked in early in December though they were slowly working their way through the hotel... one section at a time ... which was the most kind and considerate, I should say to the guests.
Our initial room however was one floor above their current work area and we asked to be moved.
We were immediately accommodated to not just a higher floor but one in another section that had already been renovated and away from any inconvenience and day-time noise.
The staff at this hotel in every way is exceptional. I dealt with them in this issue, in the breakfast area with my special diet, and when our flight was cancelled from weather issues..and we had to stay another night.
From the front desk, to the engineers, kitchen, housekeeping and all.. they were pleasant, kind, generous and accommodating in every way.
Let me also say, this was my first time at Hotel Le Marais. This was how they treated a Guest they never served before.
The hotel was indeed still under reservation during my visit but it wasn't a problem as I was out during the day. It was extremely quiet in mornings and evenings.
The hotel is not under renovation
