We stayed for 3 days while visiting new Orleans. The room was large, high ceilinged with a full kitchen and comfortable bed. No complimentary breakfast but free parking was a plus. A short drive brings you to the ferry which crosses the river and drops you off within walking distance of the French Quarter. I would book the hotel again.

The Inn was originally a Navy Lodge back in the day. Close to the Naval Station. It has been remodled and a very pleasant stay. However getting to it was not easy. We went thru some bad neighbor hoods to get there. Acess to the French Quarter is either by Ferry $2.00 one way (which is a 30mintue walk or... More

My husband, friends, and I stayed at Federal City Inn and Suites during a short trip to NOLA.

This was our first visit to New Orleans. We planned to spend a lot of time visiting different parts of the city, but I didn't want to spend a fortune in hotel (valet) or other public parking.

The hotel is on the wrong side of the river. The former military camp lacks atmosphere, there is no food available either at the hotel or in surrounding area. The rooms remind of retirement centre all very sterile. WiFi although free is not fast. It's about 2 miles to the Mississippi River ferry which is $2 per person, per trip.... More

The beds were crispy, seemed to be clean. The entire place had a clean smell, the bathroom however was yucky to say the least. Bugs in the all the corners, and a substance of unknown origin. It was quiet and cool which was nice after a long hot day exploring the French quarter.

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.
