I wasn't sure what to think when I read that I'd booked the Country Inn site unseen from Hotwire. However, it was absolutely beautiful and not like any plain-jane 2-star chain hotel. A nicely converted former warehouse, the ambiance was just as nice as some other higher star hotels I've stayed at in New Orleans. The room was clean and nice (if on the smaller side). The courtyard was lovely with tropical plants and exposed brick. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The free breakfast was very good for a quick stop.
The only drawbacks--as others have said, the small pool is more of a large hot tub. There are weird mini-stairs in each hallway that have to be navigated while you are on your floor. There isn't a restaurant in the hotel, so order out (and pick it up at the front desk area) or wander outside the hotel for dinner. Despite that, it's quite lovely and I'd stay here again in a minute.
