Homewood Suites New Orleans

Reviewed April 30, 2008

Clean, quiet. Rather average service and amenities. Somewhat out of the way, but good access to taxi's and the St. Charles trolley. A good value.

We have stayed just outside the French Quarter 4 other times but this was our first stay with Homewood Suites. It was fantastic. I couldn't give any higher praise. The staff were all friendly, helpful and happy to be doing their jobs. The room was very large compared to other NO hotel rooms. We had fridge, micro and stove although we only used the fridge. Parking was cheaper than any other hotel I contacted and the room was clean, the bed was wonderful and the breakfast was fabulous. Waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, cereal, yogurt. You name it, they had it. And in the evening during the week they have wine, beer and a light dinner/snack for you. The distance from the French Quarter was about 4 blocks. We will definitely look for Homewood Suites when we travel this summer out West.

We stayed at the Homewood Suites based on TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. Check-in was smooth and fast, and our room was big, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Having a fridge was really convenient, as was the free internet.

The breakfast was better than the average hotel continental breakfast, too-- excellent variety that included both healthy and not-so-healthy choices.

The hotel is easy walking distance from the streetcar lines and the French Quarter. The only possible negative (and it's a minor one) is that there aren't a lot of restaurants within a block or two, unless you want to go to a restaurant in another one of the hotels along Poydras, but that's not a big deal-- you probably want to go into the French Quarter to eat, anyway!

We'd definitely stay here again. Excellent value.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Homewood Suites in New Orleans. The location is good, five or so long blocks to the Casino and Aquarium, and 3 or 4 shorter blocks to the French Quarter. Also, a good location to walk to the Superdome or Arena. Our 1-bedroom suite consisted of a bedroom with 2 roomy queen beds, a bathroom (with sink outside the toilet/shower room), and a combination den/kitchen.

The morning breakfast was fine--eggs and either sausage, bacon, or some odd pork product (Canadian bacon, maybe?), plus fruit, waffles, cereal, coffee cake. A good start to the day.

The evening meals were nothing to write home about, but were certainly edible, and saved us a lot of money. We ate lunches out with our kids, and ate breakfast and dinner (M-Th) at the hotel.

The reason I didn't give the hotel 5 stars is that there was an odd knocking noise coming from within the walls of our bathroom. The maintenance man heard it, but could do nothing to remedy the situation. It was a loud noise that occurred most often in the middle of the night.

Also, be aware the this hotel does not provide hair conditioner. We asked for some, and were promised some, but were later told that there is none available.

Anyhow, it was a good stay, and a great value for the money.

Booked for 3 nights. Clean and roomy. A true suite in a town of "suites" that do not have doors between the sleeping/living quarters.
Breakfast OK. Didn't try the managers dinner because it is New Orleans and we ate out, but it too looked OK. Good value.

We chose this hotel because we were traveling with our two teenage sons, and were looking for extra room and some privacy. The hotel had very good reviews on this site, and overall, our experience was positive too. But there were some snafus.
What went wrong:
1) We had booked a 2-bedroom suite, clearly specifying the choice of one bedroom with a king bed, the other with 2 doubles. It was on our confirmation printout, but when we reached the suite, both bedrooms had king beds. We had heard a clerk at reception tell someone on the phone that they were totally booked. Also, we had asked for a room not too near the elevator, and our suite was tucked nicely into a corner of the building, so our sons said it was not a big deal, and we didn't complain.
2) However, we did need to complain that the carpet on one side of one of the bedrooms was totally saturated with liquid. A call to the desk quickly brought a maintenance man, who diagnosed a problem with the air conditioner, made a repair, and returned with a Shop-Vac to suck up as much liquid as possible. However, it remained damp for our 5-day stay, and another wet patch was present by the intake vent in the living area. Hmm.
3) PARKING. The self-park lot specified (for which we were charged $17/day) was an open air lot down the block. We didn't mind the short walk, but turns out the lot is vastly oversold, so by 8:30 in the AM our car was so totally parked in that it took the attendant 20 minutes each time to get it out. The front desk told us they knew parking was a problem, but there was nothing they could do.
The positives:
1) Staff is friendly. The free buffet breakfast didn't have as many options as Embassy Suites usually does, but there was fresh fruit, a few hot dishes, and some good breads and pastries each day. The evening reception was simple, but a nice touch.
2) Location is very convenient for walking to much of the downtown, including the French Quarter, riverfront, etc.
3) Nicely equipped small kitchen, and our sons particuarly appreciated the microwave popcorn.
