“Cheap but nosy”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

You know going in that LaQuinta is a budget hotel, and my room was clean, the location convenient and seemingly safe, and the hotel staff very pleasant. The room was kind of depressing, though: bad lighting, soft mattress, lousy water pressure, shampoo the only amenity, and a heating/cooling system that ran in noisy cycles of off or full-blast. But it was the noise outside my room that got to me, and after two sleepless nights I moved to a different hotel. In my room on the second floor, I got all the street noise--including construction and dumpster-removal, plus the sounds of a 24-hour city. The hotel itself was also noisy, because I was next to the service elevator and on a floor that was mostly devoted to housekeeping and the physical plant, with doors opening and closing all night. That also meant the floor itself was a mess. I didn't go to NO to stay in my room, but this hotel needs some work.

Room Tip: The higher floors may be less noisy. Avoid the second floor.

This was my first time staying in a LaQuinta and it is now on top of my list for pleasure/vacation hotel to use. I received a very warm welcome and wonderful room selection. The breakfast was wonderful and I will be returning to LaQuinta and particularly this New Orleans French Quarter location again.

OMG... I've been coming to New Orleans for the past 5 years and stayed at other hotels paying way more money. King rooms have a sofa. The hotel lobby was extremely clean and staff was friendly. I stayed in room 810 and the rooms are extremely large to be in New Orleans. OMG, the bathroom is nice and large. The beds are comfortable, don't forget the microwave and fridge. Couldn't believe this was a La Quinta Inn... Didn't eat breakfast but I did see the set up... Nothing fancy simple hotel breakfast, toast, muffins, bagels, boil eggs, cereal, jucie.. you get the picture..

Location is awesome, 2 blocks to Canal, 3 blocks to Harrah's. I will be back....

Room Tip: get a king size room if possible..

Very well located at the periphery of the french quarter, walking distance of many very good restaurants and the river side. The property is very clean and the staff very nice, given us brochures of restaurants and things to do on our arrival. The room was clean, usual size (for 2 double beds), but the mattresses were very confortable. My bf has back problem so it is always on issue when we travel but he tolerated well these mattresses so this says a lot. The breakfast consisted of toasts, bagels, waffels, some fruits, and some muffins, which is enough but if u stay there for a long stay you will get bored by it. New Orleans is a fantastic city for history, architecture and food and staying at the La Quinta Inn allowed us to be confortable away from home to enjoy all there was to see.

Just off the central downtown Canal Street, this hotel offers a great location and a highly professional service. Staff were always very helpful and friendly. "Mist" shower in bathroom somewhat troublesome (it covers the bathroom floor in water). Otherwise, room was relatively spacious.
Finally, this is nothing to do with the hotel, but... book a shuttle to/from the airport *more than 24 hours in advance* in order to avoid high-ish taxi fares.

Best hotel I have stayed at in a long time. It was clean, roomy, close by to attractions and safe. The staff was very kind and helpful. The beds were even better then my personal one T home... which is hard to beat! The room was spacious and updated. I will be back to this location as well as other La Quinta Inns in the future. Thank you for a great home away from home stay.
