“Great Hotel”
Reviewed October 26, 2007

Stayed at the hotel during a conference. The Drury was not one of the conference hotels, but it was $100 per night cheaper. I got a suite for $90.00. The hotel was 1/2 block from the conference shuttle stop. Very clean, spacious and nice hotel. The breakfast is convenient (if you want Denny's go there. This isn't Denny's) and a great extra. Staff was pleasant. A short walk to the FQ. Absoultely would stay here again.

I was looking for a place that wasn't too expensive as we would only be sleeping there...this was it. Nice accomodations, good price and a surprisingly good complimentary continental breakfast. This saved us time and money because going out for our big day at the NO JazzFest. I would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I went for a 3-day weekend on Thursday evening 7/26/2007 to see our daughter during her summer internship in NOLA with Shell Oil. We booked through Travelocity unsing direct NWA flights from DTW to MSY. The upcharge from just the flight cost was amazingly small for both of us. The hotel was easy to find and had on-site parking. Upon arriving I asked if we could have our daughter stay with us instead of travelling back and forth to her apartment in Kenner. I said I would pay extra if necessary. The very nice young desk lady changed our room from a king to two doubles which was fine for us at no charge. Included in the accomodations was a small hot breakfast buffet and free "well" cocktails each evening (3 per adult). The bar used a bulk liquor dispenser nozzle. There was also a Soda Fountain machine available in the lobby 24/7. We had cocktails once but ate breakfast every morning of our stay. The food was good and hot, perhaps the scrambled eggs a little salty, but I have had much worse. Twin make your own waffles etc.

The public areas were very clean and neat. A lot of impressive marble and over in the corner was a gratis computer and printer for quick email or flight updates and boarding passes.

The room was clean and neat. There was enough room for the three of us with the two doubles. All the service staff we met were freindly although some had limited english (Latina).

The location was near enough to the FQ for us to walk it 4-5 blocks directly to west end of Bourbon St.). The Casino which we didn't go to was about twice that straight down the main street.

The big bonus was when we checked out they didn't charge is for parking as we expected so all in all we got a great bargain and were very pleased.

Great hotel. We traveled with our two kids, age 7 and 10. Outdoor pool on rooftop was nice. Best part is the parking. We have stayed at many French Quarter hotels and you have to wait forever for the valet to get your car. You parked your own car at Drury. Excellent! I also liked the fact that you had to use your room key to activate the elevators as well as the outdoor /stairwell entrances. Rooms (we had the suite) are very spacious and the breakfast and evening cocktails/snacks and cokes and popcorn(free) are great. Staff was very accomodating. We will stay there on our next trip to New Orleans.

  • Liked — parking and evening social buffet and free breakfast
  • Disliked — uncomfortable sofa bed-we put the mattress on the floor for the kids

This hotel is underestimated. It was a pleasant surprise. Location was central to Bourbon St., Superdome, Riverwalk. They were pet friendly and did not have any 'strict' rules for the pets except it should be under 25lbs (but i even saw a large dog on the premises too). No extra fee for pet. The free extras are: internet access in room (no charge), also internet in lobby, free HOT breakfast (sausage, eggs, orange juice, muffins, waffles, fruit....) Free soft drinks and coffee all day. Evening Happy Hour which include snacks and drinks. The lobby is CLEAN. I even saw the morning kitchen crew wiping down all the underside of the tables, window seals etc. I just can't say enough about this place except my stay was very pleasant and I will be back. Staff was also wonderful. And all this 'hospitality' was during the Essence Festival which is when you expect service to drop...but not at this hotel. They are the best!

This is a lovely hotel in a perfect location. We spent one night here in late May and are planning to go back in April of 08. Our room was a corner one with great views. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lobby of this hotel is beyond elegant. It's an easy walk to everything fun from there. As always, Drury surpasses all expectations!!!

  • Liked — The view from the pool on the roof!!!

First of all, if you're considering staying at this hotel I recomend trying to book it through the Drury website with the e-saver rate. This was my first time to new Orleans and it was a blast! Driving from the I-10 was easy to find the hotel as its towards the superdome. I was a bit weary of staying so close to the french quarter but the hotel is VERY secure (gated parking lot, electronic key access to hotel and elevator, etc). I felt vey safe at this hotel. The front desk staff were extremely friendly especially jamie calling everyone sweetie and hunni. We left our passports at the front desk security box free of charge (we were the only ones with a key to it). The free happy hour was great they had everything from wine to cocktails. I do not recomend the beer as it was very flat. We were also upgraded to a suite once they found out we were newly weds. Had an amazing view and a very clean hotel room. Me and my husband are clean freaks and let me just say this is one of the cleanest hotels we have ever been to. Bed was comfy. Breakfast was good. Had a good variety. No complaints from this group. If we are to stay in New orleans again we will definitley be staying at the Drury Inn.
