Courtyard New Orleans Downtown Near the French Quarter
Ranked #78 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2014

I stayed here for a conference being held at the convention center. It is about 1 mile away and a easy walk. Most conventions provide shuttle service anyway. The hotel is in an ideal location to visit downtown NOLA (New Orleans Louisiana). It is half a block off Canal Street which is one of the main drags and the boundary of the French Quarter. One block up and you are at the infamous Bourbon Street.

Every staff person here greeted me each time I passed them. When I needed help, there were usually at least 2 people offering the help. My room was neat and very clean. The maid even folded a flower out of the TP, instead of just the standard point. Nice touch.

The rooms are a bit on the small size, not surprising for a big city. The one thing I didn't like was that the only window in most rooms is back into the hallway because of the layout and location of the building. I know it provides a bit more light, but I kept the curtains drawn all four days I was there.

If you are going to NOLA to work, eat, shop or just party, this is a good choice. The friendly staff put them over the top. I didn't mind the small room because I was only in it to sleep, and plan my conference schedule for the next day. I didn't need a car, or any other form of transportation to get many fine meals and entertainment. I walked everywhere from here and loved it

Nice and clean rooms. Location is perfect if staying here during Mardi Gras for the parade passes right in front of the hotel. Walking distance to Bourbon St., Cafe Dumonde, French Market and Jackson Square. Shops and restaurants around the hotel.

Great location right near Canal and Bourbon street, you don't need a car - can walk everywhere. Desk staff not super friendly, but the rest of house were nice enough. Room were 'okay'. They all face towards an indoor 'courtyard' which means no outside windows or views. However in NOLA this can be a good thing because it can get noisy at night... stayed at the Royal Sonesta once and didn't sleep a wink due to all the partying below. So if you want quiet when it's time to be quiet - this hotel works. Very clean, serviceable and centrally located. Would consider staying again.

Friendliest staff I have encountered in any hotel in the US. Location is good - a block from the action of the French Quarter - but far enough away to escape the noise. A few iconic (but basic) restaurants are adjacent. Avoid the queues on Bourbon Street!

Room Tip: This is one of three Courtyards and many Marriott's in New Orleans. Don't go to the wrong on...

This is a long due review of a business trip I did last may to the Big Easy, the hotel location is very good, very close to the French Quarters, rooms are well appointed and spotless clean, and the staff is outstanding I should say. They where very helpful with tips, and orientation about do's and don'ts on the city, and local restaurants, and they really care about your needs.

The hotel has great Starbuck's coffee on their cafeteria, so in one sentence: They pretty much have everything set for a nice stay, the only thing was the gym, I went for a morning run on the treadmill because it was raining badly outside, and one of the machines was out of order, the other one was not working properly, and the walls of the place had humidity stain spots, so I did some spinning on the stationary bike, on the end of my workout....no water..the machine was broken.

Hopefully by now the gym has been revamped, so if it has... the hotel has got its act together and ready for a great stay, for business or leisure.

We loved this hotel because it was a great place to chill and get away from the hustle of New Orleans. No airport shuttle ($33 flat rate to the airport), no free breakfast (nice place inside the hotel and a PJ's coffee across the street), but helpful, friendly staff. Across from the St. Charles street car, and less than 5 minutes to walk to Bourbon Street. Rooms were clean, wifi was free and reliable, and the bathrooms seemed to be recently remodeled. Enjoy NO!

Great location just off Canal Street and right in front of the St. Charles Ave. streetcar stop. Staff is extremely friendly, bed was comfortable, room was big, and hotel was clean. Couldn't have asked for more.
