I spent 2 nights here in May and it was perfect for my needs, the small bar was handy when coming back early evening after a hard days walking and being a tourist... the rooms are comfy, be careful if you have mobility problems as some of the rooms have quite a few stairs to contend with, the break fast is rather hectic but good... wanted to stay longer but they didn't have room.

Room Tip: Watch out for rooms on the half levels (R) as have a few stairs to deal with if you havemibility pro...

Thanks for taking the time to share! We are thrilled to hear you had a great stay, and are sorry it couldnt last longer. I apologize if the rear elevator location wasnt communicated to you on arrival. I just want to make sure anyone reading knows that we do have elevator access across the hotel to avoid stairs - but if there are specific mobility concerns definitely let us know and we can go the extra mile to accommodate.

Hopefully your travels return you to New Orleans for a more extended trip soon!

We stayed for 2 nights in May. The hotel was perfectly located to visit The French Quarter and Garden District, being just a few blocks walk from the St Charles streetcar. A longer walk obviously over to Frenchmen St for some great music, but still easily walkable for anyone used to walking! The hotel room was spotless, large (we had a room with two double beds) and had all the facilities that we needed. The shower was great and the beds very comfortable, the curtains were also very good at blocking out daylight - handy if you need to sleep late after a big night out! Temperature control in the room was excellent. There was some noise one morning with rubbish collection in the alley beneath our room, but hey, it has to happen sometime - otherwise it was very quiet. Breakfast was buffet style, plentiful and tasty. Free filter coffee is always on hand in the lobby too and was excellent. There was an ATM at the hotel which was useful, and a concierge to provide helpful tips, information and maps. The neighbourhood felt safe and staff were friendly and happy to help. They arranged our taxi to the airport which all ran very smoothly.

My husband and I stayed here at the end of March/early April this year and had a wonderful time. We loved the hotel which had a lot of character. Superb location, very close to the French Quarter and splendid facilities. Best experience though was to be found around the bar where we met so many lovely people, all willing to chat. The barman John is fondly remembered, so helpful and entertaining and the inventor of "swamp water", the eye watering cocktail that we had most nights of our stay as also did quite a few of our fellow guests, intrigued by its colour. The only slight downside was the breakfast. We were very happy to learn that the price of the room included breakfast but I have to say there is quite a bit of room for improvement there. However, overall, we were absolutely delighted with the place.

Room Tip: Our room looked out on to the street but there was no problem with that. Coming from a quiet area n...

This was a nice location, just slightly outside of the French Quarter. It was nice walking distance to many places. The valet was quite slow however. It was close to $30, and worth the price since parking was tough, but it took a long time to get the car returned. The rooms were nice, nothing extra special, but nice.

Situated on the edge of the French quarter this hotel was a lovely old building with high roofs and large corridors.
It was a lovely place and reasonably priced, including breakfast which was quite good.

The staff were friendly and helpful and it was situated close by places such as bourbon st but far enough away for peace and quiet if needed

Best experience ever - from the moment we pulled up to valet parking, unloaded our bags, and grabbed a complimentary cookie at the front desk, it was obvious we were special. We had a light and bright one bedroom suite with separate bedroom, huge bathroom, & microwave, refrigerator - huge space for 3 adults and 2 children. Hadn't been in the room 2 minutes when the front desk called to be sure we had everything we needed. EVERY staff member was polite, smiling, and accommodating - valet parking had prompt service. Breakfast was excellent and appreciated to start the day. Front desk very helpful - accommodated our late check out request. We watched the filming of a movie in the street right below our window one evening. Quick walk to Canal Street & straight thru to Decatur to head to all the touristy attractions along the river and French quarter. Close to Ruby Slipper & Mother's restaurants. Excellent pricing - extra $$$$ left for tours. Skip the dark stuffy hotels - this is our NOLA home - thank you, Country Inn & Suites!

Room Tip: Our suite was on 4th FL corner room - very bright with windows on two sides - no one above us - end...

I wasn't sure what to think when I read that I'd booked the Country Inn site unseen from Hotwire. However, it was absolutely beautiful and not like any plain-jane 2-star chain hotel. A nicely converted former warehouse, the ambiance was just as nice as some other higher star hotels I've stayed at in New Orleans. The room was clean and nice (if on the smaller side). The courtyard was lovely with tropical plants and exposed brick. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The free breakfast was very good for a quick stop.

The only drawbacks--as others have said, the small pool is more of a large hot tub. There are weird mini-stairs in each hallway that have to be navigated while you are on your floor. There isn't a restaurant in the hotel, so order out (and pick it up at the front desk area) or wander outside the hotel for dinner. Despite that, it's quite lovely and I'd stay here again in a minute.

Glad to hear you had a great stay! The property is far from cookie-cutter, and has a lot of French Quarter charm. As you note, the buildings all date back to the 1860's and have a ton of character which we think really adds to the experience. There are a few quirks, like the staircases, but we have tried to accommodate those with a separate elevator allowing guests to fully skip them if desired.

Thanks for taking the time to share the feedback! Hopefully you get to return to New Orleans again soon!
