Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, New Orleans French Quarter
Ranked #44 of 167 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 12, 2014

The reviews don't lie. The front desk service here is top notch, rooms are clean, breakfast is edible, pool is charming, just a few minutes walk from Bourbon Street and ridiculously close to Harrah's for all you gamblers. We paid about $100 a night which, for a hotel room and breakfast in the Quarter, is a steal.

The only this that made it not a 5 was the noise. I was unfortunately afflicted with pneumonia while visiting NOLA so I needed a bit more sleep than perhaps your average traveler. That said, we tried to be as quiet a possible understanding that the walls are paper thin. Our neighbours, on both sides, for the full 5 days were absolutely atrocious. Parents yelling at kids, TVs deafeningly loud, non-stop noise. And there's nothing you can do about it except bang on the walls and hope that there are reasonable humans on the other side. In our case, there were not.

Have fun and don't forget to get some Krystals at 2:00am!

Room Tip: Try not to end up near the elevators

Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to share your review. We are glad that the hotel treated you so well, and disappointed to hear that your neighbors were noisy. While it can sometimes be a tricky one to handle, definitely let us know if you ever have noisy neighbors - we can gladly speak to them for you, or perhaps offer a room change, as a couple examples of ways we might be able to help! Hopefully your travels bring you back to New Orleans again soon!

My fiancé and I recently stayed here for a long weekend in January. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. It is really is in the perfect location in the French Quarter. Everything was within walking distance and was super convenient to where we were. We arrived early at the hotel and the staff allowed us to check in early. The staff was perhaps the friendliest people I have ever met. They really made you feel like you were family. Next time I come back to New Orleans I would certainly stay here in a heart beat!

I found the hotel thru travel search and took a chance. It was a great choice. Located between the Conv. Center and French Qtr.
I walked to most all chosen destinations easily. From the bellman to the cleaning staff, all always greeted nicely with a smile. Great value for the dollar
I will book again in October

Best service, cleanliness, hospitality We have experienced at any star hotel in forever. Need to add heat to shower water they were there in a jiffy, left a super sweet chocolate apology and totally fixed the problem. ALL the staff were so friendly and pleasant. Great location, great price, perfect accomodations

Room Tip: Nice complimentary breakfast with fresh fruit and a variety of offerings.

We chose this hotel for a long weekend in New Orleans and we were happy with our choice.

Pros:
Location- We were able to walk or take the streetcar everywhere we wanted to go, including the French Quarter, warehouse District, Frenchmen Street and the Garden District. It was a lot of walking, but we enjoyed seeing everything along the way.
Service- Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful throughout our entire stay.
Amenities- Extra amenities like the free breakfast and coffee, workout room, free cookies, in room fridge and microwave etc. were a nice touch.

Cons:
Slowest elevator ever!
Small oddly sized room. Our king bed barely fit, so we were a bit cramped.

Positive: Friendly, thoughtful, professional and helpful staff. Everyone from the front desk to the concierge to the bellman was great at their jobs. I can't emphasize how much a smile, efficiency, or extra little help can contribute to having a nice vacation. The hotel itself has a nice design and architecture with stylish wood and brick that give the place a welcoming charm. Great location close to but not in the French Quarter.
Neutral: Rooms facing the main avenue will suffer from street noise especially on weekends.
Negative: None.
Elite Benefits: Received an awesome New Orleans-themed amenity package as a Gold member. Took the beads home!

I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Perhaps avoid rooms with windows facing the street if you are a light sleeper.
