“On canal street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is not far from Bourbon Street but we would not walk it late at night as there are a lot of guys standing around asking for money. The breakfast was as expected for a free one with the norm eggs etc. We noticed that only on the weekend they had eggs and sausage other days only waffles and bagels.
The rooms are very dated and need new furnishings.
There are hotels close to downtown at the same price.
The staff at breakfast very rude, could not or would not understand English
Rooms facing canel street very noisy even though we were on the 10th floor

We stayed here for an extended weekend. When booking, I was worried about the distance to the French Quarter but it was 3 short blocks away. We pretty much walked from the hotel everywhere - the French Quarter, the waterfront, the casino, the WWII museum. We used the bus to get to the garden district. We had a queen suite - bedroom with queen bed and tv and separate room with couch, desk and tv. There was also a kitchen area with fridge and microwave. There was no view to speak of but the room was quiet and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Good breakfast but hot items (eggs, sausage) go fast and we did have trouble getting a table one morning it was so busy. Staff were friendly and quick. I would recommend this hotel to friends.

This makes the 3rd time for myself and friends staying at the Clarion Inn and Suites the employees are always nice, rooms are always clean, and its only about 3 or 4 blocks from Bourbon St., but the street car stops in front of the hotel only for a $ 1.25., and we were given towels and other services when needed all in under 5 minutes of calling the front desk... Cliff always makes guests feel welcome he gets an AA+++ and Shelton was nice and helpful he gets an AA+++ to.. The rooms are big with lots of space my friends and I a total of four always book one room with double beds or a queen and softbed room.. We will return again..

We stayed for two nights and it was amazing. We stayed in the King Suite and it was just perfect. The service was great. We were greeted with smiles at the front desk. The hotel staff was very polite and very informative. The bed was cozy and comfortable. The room was clean and had a very great view of Canal St toward the FQ. This hotel was perfectly located away from the Bourbon St. It is an easy walk to get into the fray and an easy walk to get away from the noise and everything great about Bourbon St. I did not get to the pool or fitness center, but the rest of the hotel was in great order. Not also do I recommend this hotel, but I will be going back to here for future trips. My experience here was more than enjoyable. It was great!!!

Room Tip: I recommend the King suite for those of you that like to sleep. Some doors do slam shut and you will...

stayed 1 night...this was about the only hotel NOT booked for the weeke end. It was very nice,clean, rooms were clean and very comfy bed. The staff was awesome, everyone from thre two girls at the front when we checked in, to the valet, to the kitchen staff. We stayed the night of sept 21....bed was small, which we knew it would be (we had decided to take the cheapest room due to just being in their to sleep)...bath was nice and clean with plenty of towels, soap, shampoo etc. Bathroom was bigger than expected, but it only had a shower, which we also knew. Room had a safe, iron and ironing board, micro, mini fridge and a large nice flat screen tv. We had a street view out front and heard some sirens during the night, but ut was fine. All room doors slam when you close them....would like to see staff tell all visitors this...hopefully the ones who care would see that they didn't slam their doors when they go back to hotel. The room adjoining ours must have been a group or a couple because they slammed doors all night and talked loud (about donughts) and played the tv real loud. I stayed up a lot during the night, but it was fine too...i was there to go, not sleep! We got up and went to The Cafe Du Monde for cafe au lait and beignets.....then went back to the hotel and ate a real breakfast. Will do this next time for sure instead of going out. The grits and eggs are wonderful...would have liked some cheese for it,,,,sausage was ok, but was cold. Will definitely stay here again SOON!

We stayed here for one night on a quick visit to New Orleans. The location is perfect! Only 3 blocks from Bourbon Street. You couldn't ask for a better spot out of the hustle and bustle. It is surrounded by other hotels, stores, and entertainment. The room was a good size with two double beds and a desk. Very comfy beds with nice down pillows. There is a mini bar with microwave, fridge and separate sink. Two full length mirrors. The bathroom was separate from the vanity sink. It was clean and stocked with everything you need. We had a great experience staying here. We will definitely return.

I really like this hotel. I have stayed here two times. Four nights every time. It is not a luxary hotel. But the staff is really friendly, the rooms are big and nice. And I like that it is so easy to walk to french quarters or to the Mississippi River. New Orleans is a really nice town to spend time in!
