“Pretty Nice”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

We decided at the last moment to spend MLK wekend as a girls getaway in New Orleans, so I was a little concerned about what kind of affordable hotel we would be able to get. This hotel was in a decent location and at a fairly good rate. It was clean, convenient, although not friendly, it was at least not filled with rude people. Nice continental breakfast.

This was our second time staying at this LaQuinta; both times, we visited for New Years. The location is perfect, just 2 blocks from Canal Street and close to Bourbon Street. The only 1 thing we had an issue with was the air conditioner; it stated it was 68 degrees in the room, but we both felt it was more warm than that. We didn't spend too much time in the hotel room, and had already unpacked, so we didn't worry about it and just dealt with it.

But there were many bright sides to this hotel that will bring us back for a 3rd time this year. The location is perfect; and even better, they have a 'carport valet' that you can pull your car into. When we've stayed at other, cheaper hotels in New Orleans, but it gets very frustrating when you have to park your car in the middle of the street and stand by it so you don't get towed, while waiting for the valet to come move your car. At La Quinta, you have a driveway you can actually pull into for the valet. It is about $26/night, with in and out privileges, but well worth it. If you call 5 minutes ahead, they will have your car waiting for you downstairs.

In addition, the breakfast is pretty good, and the hotel is very clean. We have never brought a pet here, but we saw plenty of pets; and for a hotel that allows pets, La Quinta was very clean and pristine. I never would have guessed they allowed pets!

The beds and pillows are very comfortable, and we love the flat screens on the walls. We had a great view from the 14th floor, facing Harrah's and the bridge. We also needed directions several times, and the front desk associates were very helpful and took the time to ensure we understood the directions so wouldn't get lost.

I can't say enough good things about this La Quinta location. It's a great value, great location, and an overall fantastic experience!

Stayed here during the french quarter festival in April 2011, while the hotel is the nicest La Quinta i have stayed in the service was remarkably bad. Our hotel room was robbed while we sleeping. When I reported it the GM (probably not the GM but a suit) had no idea how to help me or what to do. Then tried yo b.s. me. What he did do was blame myself and my girlfriend for the robbery. My shorts (with all my money, phone, wallet, etc) were stolen and he actually said, " It wouldn't be the first time someone lost there shorts in New Orleans. We had two bags and a pair of shorts stolen, we had no money and were in New Orleans. This manager and his staff made the worst impression and I will never stay at any La Quinta again. Despite the fact that the night before in Kenner, LA we had the best stay and had decided to choose La Quinta whenever we could. That feeling lasted 24 hours. Luckily, we had a jar of quarters and since the staff was zero help and accusatory and the police never came, we made it all the way to Sanibel, Fl on a jar of quarters. They had an opportunity to make us life long La Quinta stayers or not. We're not.

Room Tip: *Watch yourself in New Orleans, its all predators. Go to vegas instead,

first they triple the price of the rooms on some nights, then they don't vacuum, then there is no parking but valet at $30+ per day (not noted on website), then the bedbugs which they deny until after finally five days the general manager responds to calls, he did comp two of the cheap days at least. Stay away!

Room Tip: stay they if noise in the halls doesn't bother you

We stayed at this hotel in November due to a conference at the Sheraton which was just a block away. The prices were incredibly cheap and we did appreciate the fact that there was no charge for bringing our dog. In fact, we saw quite a few dogs while we were there. However, like other reviewers have noted, there isn't any grass really nearby. It is a good 2 block walk if you have a dog like mine that needs grass to do her business.

Anyhow...we stayed on the top floor in the 2 room suite. The room was incredibly spacious and we largely avoided the noise from the street by being up so high. The room through was far less clean than I like. There were gobs of dust piled on the air unit and there were stains on the couch and the such. However, if you are looking for a cheap getaway, this is your place. It's the ability to stay near Bourbon without the smell or hassle. Also...there's a GREAT wine/tapas bar just a few doors down.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor...much quieter.

Located within very close walking distance of Bourbon Street and all the fun. Rooms are very large, modern, and CLEAN. Very nice hotel, above your typical La Quinta.

Room Tip: We traveled with children and had a king room with sofa sleeper. Perfect!

The best thing about the laquinta inn and suites in the French quarter is definitely the location. It is close enough to bourbon street to walk easily there but far enough away to be able to sleep out of the noise.
When we first checked in we were given a room on the second floor. When we looked out the window there was no view whatsoever and in fact it looked out onto a service courtyard with high walls. There were two problems with this, first of all no natural light and second of all there appeared to be seats out there for smokers that looked right into our room. I went downstairs and asked to have the room changed and was told there was none available at present but there would be in the morning. After spending the night in the room we were really wanting to change as we realized it was a disabled room and therefore the shower was open and let water all over the bathroom despite the curtain and everything in the room including the hanging bar in the closet was lower and therefore we could not effectively hang full length garments.

In the morning my husband asked about the room change and was told it was not possible as they were short staffed and couldn't clean the extra room! We weren't happy with this response so asked a third time later in the day and we were assisted by a very helpful woman who asked 'did you request a disabled room?' She immediately a moved us to another room on the 8th floor. This room had a better outlook from the window and the bathroom had a shower in a bath which prevented the water going over the floor.

The rest of our stay was great. The breakfast was adequate for our needs and the wifi was fast.

Although the service wasn't excellent I would definitely recommend the hotel for its modernity, prices and location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor and be aware that some floors are pet friendly so you may be greete...
