Looking at options in New Orleans over Labor Day weekend, I booked this hotel because of its good value, about $100 per night. I was very pleasantly surprised. First, let me get the minor negatives out of the way. Free parking is tricky; I wound up on the street 1.5 blocks away. You might just want to pay. And check-in service was slow, though check-out was fine. Also, this hotel is near Mother's eatery, the casino, and Superdome, so if you're trying to stumble back after a night at the French quarter, it's a long stumble.
That said, there are a lot of excellent things about this hotel. Room quality is high, including the beds and heating units. Even though I was on the street side, the room was quiet. Internet is free. The suite concept includes fridge, burners, and microwave. There's provided popcorn. There's morning breakfast, which has better than average variety for a free offering.
I have no hesitation recommending this place as a basis for all of New Orleans, not just the party places. It also was a good first experience with the brand.

This is a modern hotel which, as the name suggests, is entirely suite only. We had a studio suite which still had the kitchen and internet connections, all for $109 plus local taxes a night (extended stay rates). It is based in the Central Business District, so is a little way off the main tourist areas (like the French Quarter) which explains why the price is good value in comparison to some hotels in the area.

Facilities as the Staybridge are impressive for the price - there is a small free-to-use fitness room which is open 24 hours (access is through your room keycard), 3 free-to-use laundries (obviously detergent is extra!) which are again open 24 hours and require room key-card access and a small outdoor pool (which would been nice if the nearby buildings didn't block out the sun! In November it's cool but it'll be a blessing I'd imagine in the heat of summer, and when the sun is higher in the sky). Breakfast is complimentary every day and between Tuesday to Thursday there is a complimentary "Sundowner" evening meal with free beer and wine, as well as soft drinks.

There is no full time bar at the Staybridge which is a surprise as it's partly aimed at business travellers, and there is no suitable alternative bar nearby to cater for their needs (as Bourbon Street bars can be quite boisterous and many other local bars have either sports TV or music blaring out) which can be distracting for getting a business deal done. However, for tourists, this isn't much of a problem as their are a wide choice of bars to chose from. Very handy for everyone though is the free internet connections, from the downstairs business suite (which has printers - again free to use) to Wi-fi throughout the hotel and even wired ethernet connections in all rooms (our room had a cable already, though it may be of benefit to bring your own). What isn't very clear in the in-room Wi-Fi instructions is the correct network to use. It's the EthostreamX networks (where X is a number).

In summary, a highly recommended hotel suitable for all.

First of all, we miss the first night due to our flight connections from Chicago, and at the end we did not have to pay it, even if it was not the hotel's fault.
Nice two- bed "room" (it looked like an apartment, maybe because we europeans are not used to this big-thing in the USA), anaywa, confortable, silent and nice service.
Breakfast for free in the morning was a big extra and made things easier. Besides, and just in case you want to have dinner or so, there is kitchen available in the "apartment".
Prices were good, I mean about 400 euros 6 nights for the both of us was excellent and at that level of hotel, very difficult to find in Europe, I guess.
besides, nice location and (in general) staff.

Worth the visit!

My husband and I travelled to New Orleans for our one year wedding anniversary and I searched for hotels for a few weeks. We finally settled on this one because it was in a great location and the price was excellent! I was initially very leary because the price was so good that I thought it had to be just a decent place to sleep. We were very pleased that it exceeded our expectations! The hotel staff was friendly and the hotel was clean! The breakfast was perfect and the outdoor pool was very nice! We enjoyed our stay so much and we will definetly stay there again when we travel to New Orleans again!

We stayed at the hotel from July 15 through the 19th. We arrived and parked across the street at a pay lot since parking at the hotels garage was full. Not a problem, parking is a premium down there. We found the staff to be very pleasant and quick to respond to any problems. We had a ring from the sprinkler on the ceiling near the TV/armoir fall on the floor at some point in the night. I took the thing to the lobby and the manager called maintenance. They had it fixed promptly. The breakfast was nice and they have mini happy hours during Tuesday through Thursday. Our room had a nice size fridge and a view of Poydras Street and Mother's Restaurant. That way I can keep an eye on the line at the restaurant and see when it was short enough to go across the street to Mothers.

They do have a small pool, we didn't use it, but the little kids seemed to enjoy it very much! Since my husband had to work while we were there, I had the day to sightsee and was very glad we were near the French Quarter. I was able to walk to all the sights that I was interested in. I was alone during the day and never felt unsafe during my time there. In the evening my husband and I would go out to dinner and came back to the hotel around 10pm. Again we never felt like we were in a bad or unsafe area.

On the 18th, I used the laundry area, since we were on the 18th floor, we used the laundry area on the 16th floor--they also have washer/dryers on 2 other floors. The use of the washer and dryers is free, they do sell detergent and softeners in the lobby at their mini-market. We normally travel with the Purex sheets that have detergent, softener and dryer sheet in one, made it very convenient to do the laundry. My only complaint would be that the laundry room on the 16th floor doesn't circulate air very well, so if both dryers are running, it's a sauna in there.

The bed in the room was very comfortable, the couch was large enough for us to sit and plan our evenings, and the free WiFi was nice. The only odd thing was where the TV was located, yeah you could pull it out and angle it towards the bed or the couch, but really, we didn't mind. The noise level outside wasn't bad till a group of young adults (there was a HUGE church convention with young adults from various states in town) seemed to mob the area and the cops had to use their sirens to keep them moving and not block the intersection. Honestly, it wasn't bad, but know when there are large conventions in town, you might hear more street noise than normal.

I booked this hotel in New Orleans because I was traveling with 2 teenage boys and I needed a suite. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. The suite was very clean and the accommodations were perfect. Each bedroom had 2 double beds so the teens each had his own bed. The front desk staff was extremely nice and willing to assist us in any way that we asked. This hotel is an extended stay hotel so it does not routinely offer housekeeping on the weekends, but when you ask for service the rooms will be serviced. We asked for ours to be cleaned and it was.

Saw this place about a year and a half ago when my company booked me into the Loews across the street. This time around I was able to make my own booking and selected the Staybridge. Smart idea. Paid half the price; got more than twice as much.

This is a clean, very comfortable hotel. For a $128 AAA weekday rate I got a large studio suite with fast free wi-fi, a very comfy bed with good pillows, a TV with plenty of channels, a couch, a desk and a full kitchen. Water pressure in the shower could have been a bit stronger, but no biggie. One thing--and this is common in any major city--is that garbage collection is around 3 a.m. You'll know when they're on the block.

Went to one of the evening "Sundowner Receptions" they offer and there was good food plus free beer and wine. Breakfast was good--usual stuff. There are free washers & dryers on 3 floors, and the lobby store sells detergent at $1.25/box. Lobby business center had three PCs (one broken, though) and a printer, all free. Didn't go in the pool but it looked pretty small, so don't be disappointed.

Location is about a 5 minute walk from Canal St., so it's easy to get to tourist stuff. There are plenty of unsavory types on the streets of New Orleans, but I saw no sign of them loitering inside or outside of this hotel, as mentioned in another review. Front desk folks didn't seem like the type who would entertain that sort of thing.

I detest New Orleans and go only when business demands. The Staybridge Suites went a long way toward making me comfortable in a city I find anything but. If you're going there, stay here.
