Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, New Orleans French Quarter
Ranked #43 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2014

My husband and I just returned from 3 nights at this location, and had a fantastic trip. The hotel is a chain, but doesn't feel like one at all. The historic structure of the building is gorgeous, with exposed beams everywhere, and a very comfortable, airy lobby area. There are complimentary cookies and (very good, full-bodied) coffee available all day, which is great when you need to grab something on your way out the door or need a bedtime snack when coming home late. Their free breakfast is also yummy, with different hot items everyday. The room itself was clean, the bedding comfortable, and the air conditioning powerful.

The hotel is really in walking distance to pretty much everything, but far enough away from all the craziness to get some rest when necessary.

What really makes this place stand out is the staff. Every single person we had an interaction with, from the front desk personnel to the concierges to the bartender to the cleaning crew, was incredibly genuine and helpful. They were polite, yes, but also just so very warm and obviously had a great love and pride for their home city. The concierges booked a bunch of different tours at our request, all of which were really enjoyable. We both fell in love with the city and had an amazing time eating, listening to jazz, and wandering the French Quarter. We plan to return soon, and plan to stay at this hotel again.

We stayed only one night in New Orleans but the Country Inn was right in the middle of everything. The hotel is in walking distance to Harrah's, the French Quarter, Bourbon Street and the street cars. The hotel itself was very clean, the staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast had lots of variety. I would definitely recommend and we will be staying here again.

Just returning home after a 3 day stay. Had a King suite with a window. Loved the hotel- very quant with NOLa flair. Loved my suite! Bed was very comfortable and suite was very spacious. I had my 15 yr old daughter with me and we both had out private spaces. She loved the sofa bed- was very comfortable. Service was exceptional- especially by Blake Lugo. Its also in great location. This will be my "go to place" my next trip.

Thanks for sharing the feedback! I am glad your daughter enjoyed the sofa sleeper. We actually upgraded all of the mattresses and have a great memory foam system in place. I know that the phrase "sofa sleeper" scares a lot of travelers, but I am confident that they are a comfortable offering here!

My wife and I spent two nights at the Country Inn & Suites. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was great. It is located just a few blocks away from Canal Street, and is in a nice quiet location. The hotel is well priced. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for three nights before we sailed on a cruise with our family. We had four rooms and they were all really nice. I was worried about having no windows that open but it wasn't a problem at all. Very clean and had a great breakfast. They were more than accommodating. They even let us store our luggage after we got back from the cruise for the whole day before our flight departed. Everyone was very helpful and the concierge, Eddie Conrad, was extremely helpful and nice. He booked three excursions for us, the Swamp tour, the Riverboat and a city tour, and they were all excellent. We also went to the WWII museum which was very interesting especially if you like history. The hotel was easy walking distance to many things and was glad it was right on the outskirts of the French Quarter as it was very quite in the evenings. Loved the bar and the relaxed lobby atmosphere. Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms either had a courtyard view (window inside the building) or an outside view (close to anot...

We were very pleased with the hotel staff's friendliness and willing to make our stay a pleasant one. The rooms were decent sized and very clean. The valet parking was a must, given the area, and reasonable. The hotel was well within walking distance to several restaurants and for shopping. We will definitely stay here again when we return to New Orleans.
