Reviewed October 5, 2012

This was a very nice and accomodating hotel. It was 2 blocks up from Canal St and 4 blocks over from Bourbon St. It was nice and quite with a free breakfast. I thought it would be just bagels & cereal but they had eggs, bacon, waffles, fruit and a lot more. Saved us at least $10/day each by eating there. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wonderful beds w/plenty of pillows. The only thing lacking is at the bar area. There are maybe four seats, a small bar and a TV, right outside of the elevators. Never did have a drink there. Definately recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: Try the Ruby Slipper down the block for lunch.

Great for business & for family (we combined both on this trip). Excellent location close to French Quarter, but quiet and safe. Charming environment, comfortable rooms, gracious staff, complimentary coffee and cookies all day, excellent hot breakfast... as close a feeling to home as you'll find in NOLA.

Room Tip: The suites are well worth the small addition to upgrade!

We had a reunion of WWII veterans and everyone loved the hotel and especially the staff. We were directed to a wonderful caterer and had our banquet at the hotel. Staff gets cabs with very little wait if you can't walk to restaurants. It's so close to many venues that many of us walked everywhere. Staff is the best we have ever seen - great hotel. Clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: If you have a wheelchair or walker, ask for a room on the same level as the elevator as some rooms a...

It is a good hotel, located very conveniently between French Quoters and the business district. It is built in the building that used to be a factory, with many corridors and steps. Breakfast is included and also you could take a snack with you, if you wish. Tea, coffee and juices are available 24 hr at no charge. Staff is very responsive and accommodative.

From the time we arrived to the time we departed, we were very well treated by all staff and employees. We were there shortly after the August/early September 2012 Hurricane. What the staff and their families experienced during the hurricane did not dampen (no pun intended) their friendliness and service. The unique architecture of the Hotel added more sense of New Orleans History. Our Room was large, very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was good with a wide range of food to choose from. The location of the Hotel is excellent. Easy walking distance to the WWII Museum, French Quarter, Canal Street trolly, and the city bus service runs past the Hotel. The Hotel is in easy walking distance to "Mother's" Restaurant--another New Orleans landmark, Red Beans and Rice and po boys--outstanding!

Room Tip: Pick one---cannot go wrong

Thank you for your wonderful review! Stormy weather has no effect on our friendly staff, and we're so excited you were impressed by our service. Nice to see you had a chance to eat at "Mother's". Next time try the ferdi sandwich, it's delicious! Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon at Country Inn & Suites New Orleans French Quarter.

My husband and I visited New Orleans for our 5 year anniversary. We wanted a place close to the French Quarter, but not on Bourbon Street. This was the perfect location. Everything was near it or within walking distance. The public transit was wonderful as well. (The St. Charles streetcar was down for maintenance while we visited. So we took the bus to the Garden District and Zoo.) When we arrived to the Country Inns & Suites, we found out that we were bumped to a King Suite! This was a fabulous anniversary surprise for us! Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was very busy every morning, but there was always delicious food to get us through the morning for walking fuel. Thank you for everything! I will recommend this place to all my friends and anyone that wants to stay in NOLA!

Room Tip: Rooms in the upper levels of the hotel are quieter in the morning.

Stayed at this hotel the week-end of the Saints / Kansas City game. Treated my friend and her husband for his birthday. We had two suites. View overlooked Magazine Street - was great. Loved the historic look, great location - walking distance to everything - close to french quarter without all the noise. The hotel is beautiful, rooms are very nice, bed was great (what little time I spent in it) but what makes this hotel outstanding is the wonderful staff. From check-in to check-out we were treated like royalty! The concierge staff was great - gave us some great ideas but so was the front desk and the valet. Housekeeping staff are wonderful - very courteous- didn't wake us up early and kept us in towels! Enjoyed happy hour and the complimentary breakfast buffet. I would definitely stay here again (in fact I am planning a return trip in about a month) and would highly recommend it to my friends. Loved this hotel!

Room Tip: Suites are very nice - try to book facing Magazine street - you can see everything!
