“A very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This was not the first Drury Inn that we have stayed in. But our previous stays at other locations is what prompted us to check the Drury Inn in New Orleans for our pre-cruise stay

As usual, everything was very clean an nicely decorated. Love the high ceilings. We stayed one night only and spend most of the evening on Bourbon street which is only a short walk away. therefore, we didnt take advantage of the 5 pm kickback. We did have breakfast though and it was good. Staff was very helpful as we find them to always be at Drury Inns.

Check in and check out were both a breeze and they called a cab for us immediately. If I had one negative, it would be that our room did not have a safe in it. But that would only be a minor complaint at most. I would most certainly stay there again. In fact, Drury Inn's have become the first place we check into when traveling.

Spent a couple of days here the weekend before Halloween. I had a difficult time finding a decent hotel because of the voodoo fest. I went thru the voodoo website and found this hotel for !150.00 per night for Friday and Saturday. The hotel stay included a nice breakfast and the %:30 kickback. Overall it was a pleasant stay. The manager Slade was awesome and went the extra mile to make sure evertything was ok.

Room Tip: The roof has a pool and jacuzzi.

We stayed for 3 days last week. Hotel is clean and staff are friendly. The free morning breakfast was decent with plenty of options. The evening "happy hour" is not quite as good as I expected though. Hot dog buns were stale and the liquor/wine brands were all generic. We wished it started earlier, like 4:30 (instead of 5:30) and had less quanities, and more quality. Ditch the hot dogs, soup, chips, meatballs, pasta(?) and substitute some more upscale cheeses, crackers, fresh fruits for instance.

Note that the FQ is somewhat of a walk from this place. Not terrible, depending on your age and fitness level, but many days after walking around the quarter all day, the last thing we wanted to do was hike all the way back to the CBD. Not far enough to warrant catching a cab, but sometimes it felt like a little too far to walk. Don't get me wrong, I liked this hotel, just not sure it was the best choice for us this trip.

We visited New Orleans in October and opted to stay in the Central Business District, rather than in the heart of the French Quarter. This was an excellent decision. We were within walking distance of the action, and the walk itself felt very safe (unlike many areas in New Orleans). The hotel was nice, the staff was friendly and they offered some nice perks. There was free hot breakfast every morning, hot dinner every night, and fresh popcorn every evening. They also allowed three free cocktails per guest each night. While these were a nice addition, there is so much to do in New Orleans that we didn't find it necessary to take advantage of any of these offerings besides breakfast. Overall, the hotel was fine. The bed was comfortable and everything seemed clean. My only issue is that there are more luxurious hotels in the area for the same price. I would be inclined to search around a bit to see if any of the higher-end hotels have availability and a good rate, and if not, this is the place to be.

Room Tip: Make sure the ice machine and beverage machine on your floor are working - they were not working on...

I stayed at the Drury for one night on business. The lobby was well kept, and my room was very clean and average in size and amenities for a basic King room. Location was good - very close to the federal courthouse, close to restaurants, a few blocks from the casino. The freebies (free drinks, free hot appetizers, free hot breakfast, free wi-fi) are really nice. This isn't where I would stay if I was going to New Orleans on vacation, but it suited my needs very well as a business traveler.

For a dedcent price and good location, the Drury Inn is tough to beat. About 1/2 mile from the French Quarter, a block from the St. Charles Trolley and easy access to the Warehouse District, it can't really be beat. The rooms are comfortable and clean and there is little noise since you are more in the Central Business District than the big party areas. Breakfast comes with the room, and while little more than average fare, it is free and gets you out of the hotel and into the city that much faster. All in all, not a bad place to stay when in N.O.

We were scheduled for a conference being held at the Hilton but it was full so we were moved to Staybridge Suites who were then full because of the Hurricane and were then moved to Drury Inn. I was very nervous about everything being correct on check in with the many changes that were made, each by the previous hotel. The check in was easy and fast, they had all of our information and honored the rate quoted at the previous hotel. It was about a ten minute walk each way to the conference at the Hilton but we definitely enjoyed our stay at the Drury Inn. It wa clean, comfortable, had a nice breakfast and was very close to the French Quarter and Bourbon street. It was also nice that it's such a small hotel, walk in, on the elevator, and to the room; there wasn't a ten minute walk through a maze just trying to find your room like so many big hotels. All in all very pleased and would certainly stay again.
