“Perfect Location and Old World Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

The Country Inn and Suites hotel is located on the very edge of the French Quarter that allows for easy walking access to all sights but without the congestion of the French Quarter itself. We had our car valet parked and didn't see it for three days since it was not needed. All our time was spend walking the French Quarter and the river front. The hotel is in an old building which, I was told, was originally an cotton mill and warehouse. The brick walls and old beams are exposed giving it a wonderful, old world charm of days gone by. The full, hot breakfast was excellent and included all the breakfast meats, cereals, eggs and many other breakfast items. Also, the price was very reasonable for the location. I would highly recommend the Country Inn and Suites as an excellent hotel to stay when in New Orleans.

Thanks for taking the time to share the kind words! The location really is the best of both worlds - just about everything is walkable from the hotel, but just far enough that there arent brass bands outside your window at night either! Cant beat it! Glad to hear that everything met your expectations (and then some!).

Hopefully we get to host your next trip to New Orleans as well!

I loved the unique feel of this Country Inn and Suites in downtown New Orleans. The beds were super comfortable and the rustic feel of the exposed brick in the room was a real treat. The location was ideal for a walking tour of the French Quarter and also put us walking distance from the WWII museum. All of the staff were friendly and extremely helpful.
Take note that there is a daily valet parking fee as there is absolutely no long term parking to be had around the hotel.

This place is nicely located, within a short walk to bourbon st. The staff was very friendly, as if they had a personal stake in your vacation. Breakfast was good, many choices, and good quality coffee. The bar was friendly, and the bartender was a real nawlins character. Overall, high recommend for a middling priced place, nice sized suites, quiet and professionally operated.

My wife and I stayed four nights at the the Country Inn & Suites. The hotel was met all our needs. We were centrally located between the French Quarter, WWII Museum and the Charles Street Trolley, all be within easy walking district. The price was great and included an adequate breakfast. Cookies and coffee were available 24/7. The rooms were clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. What more is necessary?

The Country Inn and Suites is in a great location for access to the French Quarter. Stayed there for 5 nights on business trip, and room was great and included a free hot breakfast. Staff was helpful for making suggestions on where to eat. Limited food items at the bar.

We really enjoyed our vacation in New Orleans and our stay at the Country Inn & Suites. The hotel is located near the French Quarter but is very quiet. The staff was very friendly and provided excellent service. The room was very nice with a great bed, pillows and shower. Breakfast was plentiful and constantly replenished. The 24 hour coffee was a great service. Will definitely stay there again in the future.

Interesting renovated old building, which made the room décor a little industrial with exposed brick and beams in the room that, along with the general condition of the paint and wall paper, could have used some touch ups, but still made it interesting and different. The valet parking fee seems a little high, but the hotel is located within walking distance of the French quarter and parking down there is expensive and a nuisance so you are glad for the hotel’s valet parking. Plus the valet boys (except for one) are sweet and helpful, even giving great restaurant advice and tips. Also, the lady concierge with the long red hair and John the bartender are GREAT! All of the staff, front desk, maids, and breakfast room staff were all friendly and nice. Overall this was a very good hotel for our New Orleans getaway. Only one bad spot in the trip was that the one day it poured rain and the one valet (mentioned above) refused to call or hail a cab for us. One bad apple in the lot of them will not make me stay away when I return to the area. Overall, it was a very comfortable and pleasant stay!
