“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

All the features of room good. Included wifi that worked tell, good breakfast, and evening food with some drink coupons. The location is one block from street car line and about 4 blocks from large supermarket. Several evenings the "5:30 Kickback® - Hot Food & Cold Beverages" was enough for dinner. Just a nice old hotel. Sometimes breakfast and "kickback" crowded with tour groups there.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights. It was in an excellent location. We were a little disappointed when we asked about tours to be given just one brochure by Ronaldo and was expected to make up our minds about when we would take the tours while we were booking in. We didn't but within 5 minutes of arriving in our room he rang asking us what we were going to do. We hadn't even looked at the brochure, so he rang again the next morning. I felt as though I was being pressurised. We then found that there were many more leaflets behind the front door. In fact we found what we considered to be better tours. Why these were not on display near reception I cannot imagine. It would have been nice to have had a safe in the room. The three free drinks and snacks in the evening were also nice. Breakfast was great.

The rooms were spacious and clean.

On the last evening we found a lovely restaurant on Canal Street, called The River Place.

Incredibly helpful and courteous front desk staff-we were having trouble getting a cab during a heavy rainstorm and the woman at the desk loaned us her own umbrella.
The usual Drury food and drink-great hot breakfast, meal sized appetizers and three free drinks with a great bartender.
Four blocks from canal street, directly up the street from Bourbon St in the central business district. I wouldn't walk from the French quarter to the hotel at 2 am, but we were perfectly comfortable walking back at 10:30 pm.
Really nice rooms, marble tiles in the bathroom-way nicer than you would expect for the price.

Stayed weekend at this hotel prior to cruise. french quarter festival that weekend provided plenty of entertainment options. hotel is perfectly located for enjoying french quarter. just head out front door turn left and walk 4 blocks you will be on bourbon street. Only negative would be the parking situation but that is being fixed. Will definately stay next year as we plan on attending fqf next year.

Room Tip: 2 room suites are very spacious

Before our last transatlantic cruise we flew to New Orleans for a few days of pre-cruise recreation and relaxation. We stayed at a rather distinctive, conveniently located, moderately priced hotel on Poydras St. It gave us a number of note worthy, gratuitous services such as a full breakfast, free wi-fi, a number of free long distance phone calls, and an excellent happy-hour that included mouth-watering appetizers.

Tastefully appointed and well chosen period furniture, highly polished marble floors, and exquisite chandeliers transport one readily to a time when European elegance was a treasured commodity. For most, this is a welcome luxurious bonus.

The hotel is located within easy walking distance of downtown New Orleans, the French Quarter, and the memorable market along Chartres St. A friendly, solicitous staff makes you feel welcome and makes your stay at the Drury a worthwhile and most pleasant experience. Need I say more, we shall be repeat customers.

We were here 3 nights while attending NCAA Women's Final Four. It was a great location for walking to the arena. It was also fairly easy walk to French Quarter, about 15 minutes, felt safe but we did not walk it at night. The St Charles street car stop is just across the street. We were on the 6th floor and could hear some noise from the street car but it was not too bad. We could also hear some noise from the parking garage construction but again, not too bad. The room was spacious with vaulted ceilings. Sink was separate from toilet and bathtub which was great for sharing a room. A/C worked fine.WIFI also worked well. Bed was comfortable and good linens on the bed. The only negative to the room was the quality of the towells in the bathroom; they really need replacing. The breakfast options were ok, nothing special. The evening kickback reception was a good option for having a quick drink or snack before the game. Would be nice to have more than one choice for beer- Budlight only. It was fairly crowded during breakfast and evening reception and was sometimes difficult to find seating. Hotel seemed safe as you needed keycard entry after 10:00 and for accessing elevators. There could sometimes be a wait at the reception desk but staff were all very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor with large windows

Three of us recently stayed here during the Women's Final Four. The hotel decor was lovely and the staff was more than accommodating. We had a two room suite. The rooms were quite large and the ceilings were very high so it was extremely quiet. We also appreciated that the sink & vanity area were outside the bathroom since there were three of us.The free breakfast was mediocre in my opinion and the 5:30 kickback was great for families, but with so many fantastic New Orleans restaurants I wasn't about to fill up on chips, hot dogs, mac and cheese, etc. The location is within walking distance of the New Orleans Arena and the French Quarter, but because of a knee injury that wasn't possible for me. The hotel is very secure. A hotel key is needed to access the elevator. There is a great grocery store within a couple of blocks for anything you may need.
