I was part of a school trip to NOLA, one of eight that I've been on over the years. Our group was 50 female and male high school students plus three female and three male chaperones. Every year we ask for and hope that our host hotel will either put all of us on one floor or, even better, put the female students and chaperones on one floor and the male students and chaperones on another floor. We generally end up on two different floors but the common sense of separating the genders never quite materializes into action. This hotel gets it! They put females on one floor and males on another and quite literally blew our socks off with this attention to detail! Not only did they have this pre-arranged, but they had four copies of room by room lists ready to give to the chaperones along with the keys ... another detail we generally have to request on check in. Fantastic!
The breakfast was well organized, substantial and there was definitely something for everyone. Our group particularly enjoyed the coffee machine which has several choices of coffee plus hot chocolate. The breakfast bar was kept stocked when our group descended on it - no small task. The manager kindly opened the breakfast bar a bit early one morning when we had to be out of the hotel and on the bus earlier than usual.
Staff and management at this hotel were abundantly friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. We sure wish every hotel our group uses could learn the lessons that this hotel already knows and does so well. Thank you Country Inn & Suites Kenner!
