“Terrific hotel!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2010

What a find! Thanks to all the reviewers who helped me select this hotel. Some very talented architects have taken a series of warehouses and created a delightful and charming hotel. As a solo senior citizen traveler on a budget, the price can absolutely not be beat. And, of course, I love old, charming and places with character. This has it all. The service has been excellent.My corner room was clean and well furnished. Though downtown, I was not at all bothered by the traffic noise. The complimentary breakfast included just about anything one might want, even including a big pot of Quaker oats. I have traveled extensively world-wide since retiring. This hotel ranks among my top favorites for all my travels meeting my major criteria: budget, safety, comfort and character. I can recommend without reservation.

Just returned from the Country Inn & Suites New Orleans. We stayed three nights starting 12/11/10. It's a charming, historic New Orleans building - character has been fully maintained, but it's fully updated. Loved the "parlor" area w/ faux fireplace near the entrance.

The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our needs didn't extend beyond the basics of check-in/out and a few questions about directions, but I felt they could have handled anything.

Rooms are clean and updated. It's not a five star/luxury hotel, but it had everything we needed - modern bathroom, nice toiletries, comfy bed, tv, desk, reading area w/ chair/ottoman. We were on the first floor straight back from the entrance, so our view was nothing to write home about. I recommend asking for one of the upper floors. On Tuesday morning around 3 a.m. the garbage men were busy/loud clearing dumpsters. Lots of beeping from the trucks and yelling. I confirmed with a friend who's visits frequently that this is a regular occurrence.

Two of the best things about this hotel are the free breakfast & free internet. Great spread of some hot items (eggs, sausage, french toast), and the basics like cereal, yogurt, bagels, muffins, etc. It was a great way to start the day. All rooms have free internet. We had free wireless in our room too, but that may have been because we were on the first floor. They advertise that the lobby is a wifi area, and we may have had it too just because of proximity of our first floor room.

Location wise, this worked well for us. It's an easy walk to Canal Street and the French Quarter. Had it been warmer (was in the 40s and WINDY), I think we could have walked to most of our planned destinations. We skipped a lot given the bad weather. But it resulted in more time relaxing at the hotel, and that was okay too.

Our three night stay totaled about $305. This was the deal of the century! I highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for something a stone's throw from the action.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. The parlor area has been enjoyed by a lot of our guest who just want to sit back and relax.

Third trip to NOLA-third hotel. Previously stayed at Bourbon Orleans and Hotel Le Cirque. This was at least 5-times nicer and 1/3 the price. Since we were there for Thanksgiving we had forgotten about the bayou Classic, one of the loudest drunken brawls in all of civilization. A lot of fun if you are involved but the opposite if you are not. That made us appreciate the location which was a convenient walk to the French Quarter, Restaurant August and Emerils but away from the worst of the brawl. Staff was great as was breakfast. Our Suite overlooking Magazine was fairly large. Rooms were pretty new and well maintained. I don't think I will even look anywhere else next time.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a mix of business and pleasure, and really enjoyed it. The hotel is clean, has excellent free wireless access, and great customer service. In addition, it has one of the best free breakfasts that I've experienced; it always included the usual items but also a hot item (sausage, eggs, etc) as well as yogurt and fruit and a Belgium waffle bar. I initially was concerned with this location since it is on a side street, but I felt very safe and convenient to my destinations (Riverwalk, casino, French Quarter). It was quiet, too. The bed was very comfortable, and the bath products were of good quality. The free cookies at the reservation desk in the afternoons were a nice find also. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever in the area.

I've stayed at the Country Inn & Suites a number of times now when visiting New Orleans for work, and have been continually impressed with what you get for the money. Good location, agreeable staff, interesting rooms, with some history to the building. It's not likely to compete with the upscale hotels in terms of service, amenities, or overall quality, but it's far above what I would expect for a Country Inn or other hotel in this class. Since my last stay I've recommended it to a number of colleagues, all of whom have been happy.

It's in a great spot,:across from Cuvee Restaurant, within walking distance of Bourbon Street but far enough away to be able to effectively escape the debauchery & noise. Rooms can sometimes be small, but I appreciate the unique character they've been able to bring to each one.

Pool is very small; small enough to feel crowded if another family is in with you.

I stayed here for several days in November while at a conference. The hotel is as everyone says - quite nice, clean, good value, great location. It's not high end, but it's more than acceptable and has everything you need. It's new and the decor is in fine shape. Internet is free - a big plus. The breakfast is just okay, but that's to be expected. There are a few coffee shops in the area I'd recommend instead including Community Coffee House. Overall, it's a good deal.
