“Nice hotel close to cruise port and French Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We stayed 1 night prior to leaving on a cruise. The hotel room was rather large and had a full kitchen. The room and furnishings were clean and modern. I used points to book this room which was a good deal. The hotel offers free internet and breakfast. There is a parking lot directly across the street from the hotel but there is a charge. We took a taxi to the cruise port in the morning - we offered the driver $10 and he accepted althought the standard rate is a little more for 2 people. I think it was $7 per person. We walked to the French Quarter from the hotel. The casino is only a block away. We took the shuttle at the airport for $20 a person to the hotel. A taxi ride is approximately $38 from the airport to the hotel.

Hotel offers excellent service. Staff at check-in polite and friendly, rooms are spacious and clean. We were quite surprise that there was no noise from adjoining rooms. Our suite had a kitchenette with fridge, microwave and dishwasher and a small dining area. Found internet connection slow to logon, but overall good quality. TV selection excellent. Complimentary breakfast good, however staff appeared to be less than enthusiastic to serve or clean up. Evening cocktail hour offered beer and wine and appetizers, however once again staff appeared to be less than enthusiastic to serve or even open up the white or red wine. This is based on our three day stay with the hotel. The lady who looked after the concierge service was a true delight - who went above and beyond her duties. In the morning, she went around to the guests in the breakfast area and lounge area to see if she could help guests in planning their stay in New Orleans (She definitely should be award the employee of the week, month and year award - a true ambassador for the hotel.) Hotel is located about a block and a half from Canal Street, with easy access to French Quarter. Mothers restaurant across the street is always good for lunch or dinner.
Drawback would be no complimentary shuttle to airport or cruise ships. A great hotel to stay at, would stay here again.

I'm a first time visitor to NOLA and wondered about the hotels there. The Staybridge was selected by the trip leader of our group and it turned out to be a very good decision. I'll tell you, I could not find one thing to complain about at the Staybridge.

Everything from the moment we arrived there made me feel welcome. The staff at the front desk throught our four night stay was great. The staff members in the dining room were very helpful and kept the food coming. They made sure the tables and the entire dining area was kept clean for us guest.

The one thing I regret was forgetting to leave a tip in the room for the young lady who kept our room nice and clean. She also deserves kudos for her job.

As you see, I really enjoyed my stay there and definately would stay there again. The Staybridge New Orleans gets a "100+" from me! Great location within walking distance to everything.

Staybridge Hotel, I'll see you again on my next visit to the "Big Easy"!

Prepay and save! This is a great hotel! If you know for sure your travel dates you can prepay for your stay and save a bunch of money.

We only stayed for two nights, but it is definitely set up for longer stays. Our room had a kitchen, spacious living area and two double beds.

1. The beds, bedding, room temperature, water pressure, etc. were all excellent.

2. Parking was competitively priced (as compared to lot prices) and is covered/gated.

3. Complimentary breakfast was good, but best if you get there closer to open.

Oh, and the location is perfect, walking distance to both the Convention Center and the French Quarter!

I will stay here again when visiting New Orleans!

Room Tip: The elevators (2) were very responsive, so high/low floor decision was not an issue. Closer to the e...

This compact little home away from home, with its small kitchen and welcoming common room downstairs, is just right if you are spending three or four days in The Big Easy. Just off Canal Street, it is far enough from the craziness of the French Quarter to serve as a refuge while being central enough for easy access to all of this great city -- Magazine Street, the up-and-coming Warehouse District, River Walk, Marigny and Frenchmen, and Uptown. And great places you might not otherwise visit, like the Wine Institute of New Orleans (WINO) with its dozens of wines for the tasting, are just around the corner. While you give up the charm and personal touches of the B&Bs where we normally stay (i.e. Royal Street Courtyard), Staybridge happily accepts dogs (with a small deposit) and does its best to remain friendly and welcoming, providing appies and wine some evenings and always available coffee in the common room. Not everything is perfect -- the morning breakfasts are pretty motel chain predictable, and (pet peeve notice) it irks me that they use environmentally unfriendly Styrofoam plates and plastic cutlery and glasses. Come on, folks; how much does a dishwasher cost. Nice place I would definitely stay at again.

The staff were great at the hotel as was the room. We were there for a wedding and the church was 2 blocks away and the reception was 3 more from there so it was very close. It's an easy walk to the french quarter and the hotel is right in the warehouse district a few blocks from the WW2 museum. The only complaint was that we were on the top floor and we never had really hot water to shower with. I'm guessing it was due to the number of guests was low and the demand for hot water was down and by the time it got to us it had cooled down quite a bit.

This was a great hotel for location but as far as anything else it was lacking. Upon check-in, the customer service was lacking. If you asked ANY of the front desk staff a question, they seemed put out. I was bothered by this since they were one of the host hotels.
The rooms are VERY small and dingy. They need an update. The beds are horrible. I would have much rather slept on the couch, oh wait, I did!
If this hotel was updated and had more customer service, I would consider staying here; otherwise, I would spend another $20 a night and go down the road.
