“affordable and within walking distance to everything”
Reviewed June 18, 2011

I have to reiterate what many of the reviews are saying. It is far enough from all the downtown madness BUT within walking distance to everything - which is a very GOOD thing. The room was clean and bed was comfy. I'm not going on vacation to stay in my room. So it was worth the money to be close to all the attractions but not so close that you cannot rest. The downside is the parking fee of $30 (it's a one time fee no matter how long you stay and freedom to come in and out as you please) and the small rooftop pool.

We traveled to New Orleans in 2010 and stayed at this wonderful hotel. La Quinta Inns are always pet friendly which is a plus because we always bring our four legged children along on most of our trips. The Staff gave excellent customer service. The room are a nice size and very clean. The park to walk the dogs is only a couple blocks away. We are planning another trip to New Orleans Fall 2011 and will stay again.

I always enjoy staying at La Quinta Inns. This one is located only about two blocks from all the action on Bourbon Street. Excellent location, clean, great room. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone going to New Orleans. Only drawback was the $30 to park our car in their garage.

Located in the Central Business District right between the French Quarter and the Garden District, the downtown La Quinta is only three blocks from Canal Street. The rooms were clean and the only complaint we had was that on the first morning our room was not cleaned when we returned about 2 in the afternoon. We called downstairs and the room was immediately cleaned. As older travelers we are not out all day and like to return earlier for a rest period before more sight seeing and dinner. The hotel staff was very helpful and polite.

Room Tip: We booked on Hotels.com and got the best rate.

Stayed here with my family for three nights. Nothing was terrible, but lots small things added up to a disappointing experience.

First the positive... The room was priced right, even the suite which I'm glad we got. Lots of room and the main bedroom closes off, leaving the kids to a pull out sleeper and their own TV separate from the adults. Also the location was great - right between Poydras and Canal. And it looks like some effort was made to update the room with some contemporary design.

On the flip side... 1) the room smelled stale and damp. The cleaning lady was next door and sprayed the carpet upon our request, but the smell never quite went away. 2) The toilet made a horrendous sound each time it was flushed, and needed multiple flushes to be effective. 3) Two lamps did not have light bulbs. 4) The bed was hard, and the sheets were old and worn. 5) The hotel allows pets, and there was a barking dog next door 6) Only partially cleaned room by housekeeping one day. 7) We had hoped the pool would be a real amenity, but it was a cruel joke. Maybe 20X10 feet total size with 4 ft maximum depth. My son looked at the water and said - "Wow - that's murky." We did not use the pool. 8) Poor front desk service. I called three times and got no answer, so I had to go down myself. When I told the desk clerk that I had been calling multiple times, he just stared at me and offered no response or apology. 9) No bar, no restaurant, no room service. We knew this ahead of time, but the impact really added up over the four days.

Again, no single one of these things was terrible, but add them up consistently over four days and you get a very disappointing stay. I'll pay a few bucks extra next time and stay somewhere with better attention to detail.

We stay here because its convenient to downtown within walking distance. We can walk to French Quarter, the Mississippi Levee, Harrahs and lots of eating places between Decatur and Royal St. Many art shops and musuems along the way. The service is good, its clean, the beds comfortable. The view is great toward the river. And because we stay here a lot, we get rewards!!!

Room Tip: the upper floors can be a little noisy
