Very convenient location to French Quarter. We parked in the garage next door ($30/day) and walked everywhere. Hotel room was nice, personnel was helpful. Breakfast was okay. No regular coffee first day, decaf just wouldn't do the job :(. No waffle batter or syrup next day, but was replenished soon. No complaints otherwise.
I booked this hotel through Priceline and got a really good deal. I selected French Quarter and Downtown areas on a name your own price.
Canal St is just a couple of blocks away and that is the gateway to most things to see and do in New Orleans.
I strongly suggest the local tours. They will help you determine where to go and what to see if you are not familiar with the City.
The room at La Quinta was clean, the bed was comfy, we were very comfortable. The pool is small.More
