Great value, clean, and quiet place to rest your head at night! The room was very large and recently updated with a modern feel to it. We had 2 queen beds and a kitchenette that had a mini fridge, microwave, stove, and coffee pot. The sink and vanity in the bathroom is a separate area, and the toilet and shower... More

I had stayed previously both when this was still an active Navy Lodge and just after the conversion to a commercial property, both time, it was horrific. Poorly cared for and service that was less then stellar. None of this is true now, the housekeeping staff is top notch, and the remodel of the rooms is successful and makes the... More

Federal inn was a great place to stay while visiting New Orleans. Out of the city so it was safe and quiet, large rooms with kitchen. Close to ferry to city. 9 min ride $5 to park $10 on weekends, drops you off at the aquarium and trolley stops. Watch for sailing times.

We really loved staying here .. Clean and quiet .. But easy access via the Algiers Ferry to the hub of tourism across the Mississippi. There is a wonderful bike trail along the Mississippi nearby, and biking in NOLA is a great way to see the city. Bike lanes are marked and cars were alert to the many bicyclers. We... More

Stayed here for the NOLA Jazz Fest. We booked here since all the other hotels and B&B were either booked or overpriced. Very reasonable, clean and location was quiet and safe.

Staying in Algiers

Neighborhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
