“Spend a Night not a Fortune”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The Country Inn and Suites is located a block and 1/2 down Magazine Street west of Canal which places it just 2 blocks from the French Quarter and 2 blocks from Harrah's. Great location at a good rate. The rooms are simple but clean. Ceilings are very high which makes the rooms seem larger. Our suite was equipped with 2 TVs, a refrigerator, and microwave. This property is cool because it is a restored warehouse. A continental breakfast is included. Nothing special about the food. A courtyard is located in the center of the property with a small pool.

THE WALLS ARE MADE OF PAPER! Not only that, but I could see many cracks of light coming through from my neighbors room (where the ceiling met the wall); sound proofing is non existent here. I did not sleep at all during my stay here. I called the front desk over 6 times during my nights, to ask that they please get my neighbors to be quiet. They asked if I would allow security to come in to see "just how noisy it was". I had to get out of bed and dressed three times for these intrusions, as well as having to go down to the front desk to report the issue in person (as they stopped trying to deal with it). They tried to argue it wasn't that bad, they were not the ones listening to my neighbors TV ALL night. In the end they gave me earplugs. I think it is a bad sign if they have these on hand... This was what I got for paying almost $300 a night after taxes and GST.
The lobby is nice and the breakfast was good, but not good enough to make up for my horrible sleep. Only stay here if you intend on not sleeping.

This is one great hotel! Besides the ultra clean environment, the location is perfect. You are within walking distance to everything New Orleans! You're also on Magazine St where the #11 bus will run you through the Garden District and the shopping! Around the corner is the St. Charles streetcar as well.
The staff here was all smiles and very attentive.
Our suite was beautiful, clean and very roomy. Slept like a baby.
We will definately return and highly recommend anyone to Stay Here!

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a suite. It's just a few dollars more and worth it!

Awesome review! Its always great to hear that guests are having fantastic stays! Between the location and a staff that does genuinely care about going the extra mile we hope that the efforts really shine through with memories that will last a lifetime. It sounds like this trip hit that mark.

Thanks for taking the time to share the endorsement, and we hope that you get to visit again soon!

Our room was nicely furnished and the hotel is very well located, within easy walking distance of French quarter attractions and close to trolly transportation. Cabs are plentiful in the area. Our rate (paid in advance) was among the best we found in the tourist area. The service in the hotel is exceptional. When we turned our TV on the first night, it was not working. A call to the front desk caused a repair person to be dispatched within 5 minutes. 15 mintues later he had swapped the tv for a new one and had it working. 5 minutes later we got a call from the front desk making sure we were happy. 5 minutes after that we got a call from the repair man asking if all was working ok. This is great service paired with an excellent follow up system.

The room comes with everything you will need to include some toiletries, mini fridge etc. Any questions we had concerning restaurants, music Diana our concierge was just awesome....whatever question we had she took care of us....made our stay complete...would stay there again....only complaint would be the mattress ...woke up with a sore back every morning...

Recently visited New Orlean for both business and vacation. The location of the hotel to my convention was great. This hotel is right in the French Quarter with close proximity to restaurants, shopping and sites. I frequent Country Inn & Suites when traveling with my family and have always found them to be quite good for our needs. This one topped them all. By far my favorite. The staff, as a whole, was extremely warm and welcoming and very courtious from the day we arrived through the day we left. BIG THUMBS UP!!

We were happy with everything about this hotel - location, extremely helpful and friendly staff, nice room with VERY comfortable beds, in-room coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, ironing board, etc. A hot buffet breakfast is served daily which even included fresh fruit. Fresh coffee and cookies are provided 24 hours. Charming lobby that includes a bar and a 24-hour mini-store. There is also outdoor seating in a courtyard around the pool and a fitness center. It was everything we needed and more. I definitely recommend it.
