“Excellent Stay and Staff”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I stayed here when I was in New Orleans last weekend. I really hadn't heard anything about this hotel chain, as they are not in the area where I live. I actually decided to stay here after looking at various travel sites and reviews, including the ones on here.

This is probably one of the best hotel experiences I have had with any hotel chain, except for the Disney resorts in Florida. The beds were extremely comfortable and was able to sleep pretty easily too.

The food provided was also pretty good. They have both a free breakfast and dinner. You don't get the free dinner at any hotel very often, but this chain has it. You can even have up to 3 free alcoholic drinks in the evening if you're of legal age.

As others have said, the hotel is not that far from much of the action in the city. I ended up doing a city tour while I was there, since the weather wasn't as good for getting outside. It was hot and had off and on rain while there.

If you are in the New Orleans area, definitely look to stay here. The price is comparable to other hotels, and you get so much more here.

I've brought large groups to work with organizations in New Orleans in restoration efforts since Katrina. For seven years, Drury Inn - New Orleans has been nothing but the very best. First class and then some...from check in, to helpful front desk, to evening snacks and drinks to a superb complimentary hot breakfast, to the building itself which has a nice sense of class.

Stayed here for the Superbowl weekend, the staff was extremely friendly and customer focused. The place is typical New Orleans but new, clean and up to date. The morning buffet was great, small fitness room but got it done. Also to be noted was the great location, a couple blocks off the quarter and a few blocks from the river but quiet when you get back to your room and easily accessible to everything.

This Drury Inn is much different than most... located in an old, refurbished building on the edge of the French Quarters it is beautiful from the lobby to the rooms. They are adding on a new addition and parking garage and I look forward to going back not only to the hotel but back to the French Qtr.

Drury inns are a good choice as you get free meals they are basic but good also you get free drinks both alcoholic and soft drinks so makes it very good value. The hotel is very close to all the attractions

We stayed here a couple of weeks after Mardi Gras. Found that the location was ideal - close to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street but far away enough so it was quiet. We walked everywhere and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Full breakfast, light dinner and snacks were great. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff were awesome. The pool was a nice temperature. Exercise room needed some attention. Otherwise it was great.

Fantastic hotel, we were off cruise early and they checked us in by 10.30 a.m. without a blink of an eye. Rooms are very clean and spacious. After the ship the bathroom was enormous. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooftop pool and whirlpool is a great bonus. Renaldo behind the desk is absolutely great. Would defintely revisit. Oh and the 5.30 drinks and food are just what u need after a day walking about.
