We stayed 3 nights as a vacation trip. Room was in excellent condition with comfortable bed (although only 4 small size pillows on a king bed), microwave, refrig, and coffee maker. Housekeeping was efficient (we were out of the room during the day) and all lights, tvs, etc. were in working condition. Staff very helpful and friendly, always greeted us coming and going, helped with directions and obtaining taxi to airport. Easy walking distance to edge of French Quarter, maybe 10-15 minutes when we walked slowly to Jackson Square, Canal St and St Charles street cars about 2-3 blocks away depending on which one line you want. If you want to ride St. Charles I'd pick up before it loops onto Canal Street as many people board at Canal. From Qual Inn you can pick up St. Charles line one stop before Canal St. and likely find a seat. Free breakfast is ok and saves the time and trouble of going out. If you want a leisurely high quality breakfast, you can find something nearby. It was not crowded during our stay. The neighborhood of the hotel is relatively quiet and we felt safe -- usually we were back in the room by 11 pm so not out late. On hot days you can use the Roosevelt Hotel as a block long AC break while walking to French Quarter. We had a great price at the Quality Inn and as other reviews have stated the service is topnotch. It is not a 5-star facility but I'd rather stay at the Quality Inn again for the location, affordability, and service.
