Stayed here July 2012 with a friend. Requested a high floor room away from the elevator. Got 2nd floor(building has 9 floors) literally right next to where they are building that parking garage.
Checkin-in: Was quick and painless. Pointed out my room request and was told there was nothing else available. To be honest, they were very nice and the customer service was good
Room: 213. Double bed room with fridge/microwave. Room was clean. Bathroom was small but accomodating. But as we found out at 830am Saturday morning when the jackhammers or whatever they were started off we were WAY too close to the construction. Every morning except for Sunday we heard all kind of noise from the construction. I dont believe they should be booking folks in these rooms and if they do how about some warning about this??? Just a hey you are going to be near the construction would be nice. Most places 830am is not that late but in New Orleans, guests are sleeping at this time. It got so we would go take naps by the pool or have to wait til late evening to catch up on some sleep.
Breakfast/happy hour: I've stayed at other Drurys where these services were pretty decent. We showed up for happy at 550pm(starts at 530) to lukewarm hotdogs and cold mac and cheese and hey we're out of this(tequila, wine for happy hour). Breakfast was lukewarm to cold biscuits, icky powdered eggs, and inedible sausage. I'm not expecting the Ritz but food shouldn't be cold. I've experienced much better at other Drury hotels. Please take notes from the Drury Plaza San Antonio(see review) We totally skipped it after the second day and went to Daisy Dukes(budget restaurant) for breakfast. Only thing that was good was the veggies on the evening snacks. Shame
Pool: Was decent when folks didn't allow their kids to do cannonballs and such in the pool and 3 yr olds weren't in the jacuzzi.
Location: I thought was good. I've stayed directly in the quarter and I prefer modern hotels/amenities so I was not happy at my last location(see review). It was barely a 4 block walk and there you are on Bourbon St.
Recommend/return: Maybe but only if the construction is done or I can at least get a room away from it and I would not waste time with the happy hour/breakfast. I made a video of the noise in our room at 8am but TA has changed so you can now only add photos so couldn't include here.
