Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, New Orleans French Quarter
Ranked #44 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This is our favorite hotel in New Orleans! A mid range priced little place just two blocks from Canal Avenue, guests can walk to the French Quarter, casino, Lafayette Park, and plenty of restaurants. (Lafayette Park, by the way, is not a recommended destination; it's small and not much to see, but it is how I find a favorite restaurant, Herbsaint.) The renowned Mother's restaurant is around the corner, and there is a nice steakhouse across the street. Staff at the hotel are accommodating, and clearly well trained. With many tourists from all over the world, the staff always seem to have time for another question. The building is a beautifully restored old warehouse, and the rooms are all nicely decorated and comfortable, with free wifi. There is valet parking, and given the city location, it is rather costly, but worth it to have your vehicle stored safely. There is a tiny workout room, a small courtyard outdoor with a little pool. There's also a lovely little reading room, with a borrowing library. What a treat!

Room Tip: There are rooms right next to the elevator, that I would avoid due to foot traffic. On first and sec...

I will admit I was a little nervous about choosing a chain hotel. However I was very pleasantly surprised. The location was nice (2 1/2 blocks from the French Quarter). Hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly. Free breakfast was a nice bonus. Rooms are small, but adequate and clean.

Glad to hear you had a great stay! We like to think we are the best of both worlds - all the amenities and extras you would expect, while maintaining a great French Quarter boutique atmosphere. Thanks for giving us a shot! Hopefully you get to come back and stay again soon.

I've been to New Orleans a few times and stayed here on my last visit. The staff were WONDERFUL, going above and beyond what you'd expect. The concierge gave my friend and I the JazzFest booklet when she overheard we were on our way to the festivities and also told us of a great little cafe around the corner with great food. I'm staying here again just for that. Good breakfast selection in the mornings and a outdoor pool nearby. Our rooms were always cleaned to a T and the AC worked well too. I've already booked for next years JazzFest with them! Highly recommended.

This hotel was perfect for our family trip to New Orleans. It was located near the French Quarter and business district, giving us the best of everything. The staff was incredibly friendly and the hotel itself was in good condition. The rooms were a bit underwhelming, but they were clean and cozy. The free breakfast was great, too! Overall, I would recommend this hotel for the value and location. If you're looking for fancy, though, this isn't your spot.

Room Tip: Watch out for construction on some of the side streets. Our in-laws apparently woke to jackhammerin...

Our group of twelve stayed at the Country Inn & Suites before we departed on a cruise and once again when we returned. The location of this hotel couldn't be better. We were within walking distance of Bourbon Street, Jackson Square & the French Market. If you needed something the hotel didn't have, CVS and Walgreens were close by. The entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They helped to coordinate our early arrivals, arranged our transportation to the Port of New Orleans, and directed us to some great dining establishments. The "Happy Hour" in the small, quaint bar was a plus. The free breakfast had a large number of offerings and was very good for a buffet style setup. We had a mixture of rooms, both suites and regular. Each one was clean, well appointed, and very comfortable after a long day of traveling. A great hotel to stay at while in New Orleans.

Arrived at this hotel on the 1st stop on our trip. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We asked for rooms next door if possible when booking. At check in the receptionist advised this was not possible but we would be on the same floor and as a consolation she upgraded one of the rooms to a suite! Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast which is provided has hot and cold foods - enough choice for everyone and delicious. The concierge was very helpful, he arranged a great tour of the city for us and had good advice on the best plantations in the area. The hotel itself is in a great location, bourbon street etc. are all within a short walking distance.

Cannot fault this hotel at all! All of us thoroughly enjoyed the stay and hope to return!!

We had an excellent stay at the Country Inn & Suites. This hotel is close to everything. We walked everywhere (except the zoo, but the bus stop for the bus that takes you right to the zoo was just outside the doors). The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and had fridges and microwaves. Free wifi and free breakfast which was repetitive but still great. Also, they had free 24 hour coffee and a filtered water dispenser. The pool was small but that didn't bother us too much. It was good enough to cool off and splash around a bit with our 16 month old daughter and only seemed busy certain times of the day. The hotel was also visually interesting and had a lot of character. Excellent value for the price. The little lobby bar was great and the to go bags (free apples, oranges, cereal bars, etc) in the morning were a nice touch as well. We would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: We stayed in 328, it had a great little nook where we put the crib so that we and the tv weren't...
