Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, New Orleans French Quarter
Ranked #40 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Visited my son in New Orleans. Needed a hotel since he has a very small apartment. This was a fun place to stay. It's a converted warehouse so architecturally it was really interesting. It had what I always look for - cleanliness and comfortable beds. Rooms are good size. You are 5-10 minutes walk to the French Quarter, the Aquarium, Woldenberg Park on the river and the World War II Museum. It's also only 2 blocks from the St. Charles streetcar. Staff was friendly and helpful. Used valet parking one night and it was efficient. Breakfast was decent. They have a nice little bar which we enjoyed one evening prior to going out to dinner. One block away is a restaurant called Ruby Slipper Cafe which is a good breakfast/lunch place if you miss the hotel breakfast.

Very nice hotel - 5 minute walk to French Quarter. Pretty good breakfast - unlike lots of places with free breakfast - they never ran out.

Staff was friendly and helpful overall.

Room Tip: Rooms that open on the lobby are likely to be less quiet than others. Lobby goes up 5 floors!

The hotel is very charming and beautiful to begin with. They were very nice at check-in. Our room was great (high ceiling) and very clean! We loved the romantic atmosphere there was. The swimming pool is really an oase in the middle of a big city like New Orleans. The greatest thing about the hotel is that they both have a small bar and that you can get a snack or something small to eat in the hotel itself. We have had a lot of hotels in the USA, but this was definitely one of the best. Breakfast is good with cereal but not as big as you would expect from description. Also the breakfast area is quite small. We loved how we could walk to the action of Canal street and Bourbon street without having to deal with al the noise it brings. We were there on memorial day - weekend 2012, and didn't have any problems sleeping. So, if you are looking for a charming clean quiet hotel where you can escape the busy 'big easy', you should take this hotel. Only minus: the valet parking, it is very expensive...

I stayed June 2-6, 2012 at this hotel. The prices are great and the hotel is relatively quiet compared to many in the area. The location is great and is surrounded by some awesome restaurants. Breakfast in the morning including hot items was great for those on a budget. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The pool was tiny, but most people don't go to New Orleans to swim!!!! The hotel is a conglomeration of remodeled historic buildings which adds to the charm of staying in the city. I'll definitely stay at this hotel again!

There are so many choices as where to stay in New Orleans we struggled with picking a hotel from all the posted reviews. We wanted a hotel that was in a safe part of the city but still near all the major tourist hang outs. No regrets with selecting the County Inn and Suites on 315 Magazine Street. Hotel has a lot of charm. Easy walking distance to just about everything the city has to offer. Hotel is situated near the Trolleys, Casino, Waterfront and Canal Street. The place is clean, beds comfortable, staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable and it’s priced right. What more can you ask for. Booked all our sightseeing trips right from the hotel concierge. Buses and shuttles pick you up right in front of the hotel. Great steak restaurant across the street “The Chop House” perfectly prepared meal and fantastic service. Speaking of food…The “Gumbo Pot” (713 St Louis Street) and “Coops Place” (1109 Decatur Street) both in the French Quarter served up some delicious authentic New Orleans cuisine. Loved NOLA, can’t wait to go back.

Room Tip: Try and make sure to ask for a room with a window.

Just finished staying three nights and thought it was a nice place to stay for the price. Breakfast was good, staff very nice and helpful. The female concierge gave us several tips on restaurants which we really appreciated. Only sour note was tip from Frank, the other concierge, on taking Adventures in New Orleans tour. He suggested that tour over the one we had picked out and talked about great tour guide and air conditioned buses. We also had to pay a deposit to him in cash before the tour which seemed a little odd. The tour turned out to be a disaster. The bus never cooled off and tour lasted over an hour longer than was advertised. Tour guide was so poor and spent hour after hour- 4 of them- making jokes. Worst tour I have ever taken and feel like concierge was only interested in getting his share of our ticket price.

we stayed 30MAY12 for 2 nights and from the moment we entered the front door we felt at home. It's our type of "look" decor wise. We only experience good things at this hotel, even the tiny pool was ok for us because we didn't have kids. Every employee from the guys outfront,the housekeepers, to the front desk seemed glad to see us. Location is great, a 3 block walk to the French Quarter.

Room Tip: if you need total darkness to sleep, try the one bedroom suite, the bedroom has no window
