Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, New Orleans French Quarter
Ranked #45 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2009

We stayed here and had a nice time. The staff were friendly and offered everything we needed. Breakfast area is a bit crowded and the pool is very small. We were in two different rooms because we requested a move and both vents were in major need of a cleaning, but otherwise the hotel was fine.

We booked for 2 nights but I could have stayed longer. The staff was really helpful upon check-in and even had our room ready before noon! The room was on the smallish side but extremely clean and well maintained. We took the first set of elevators to our room which was a mistake because you had to walk down then back up stairs in the hallway to get through.
The consierge pointed us to the streetcar line to the Garden District which was around the corner. After checking out the park by the Zoo, Magazine St., Lafayette Cemetary and Commander's Palace for drinks, it was back to the hotel for a break.
The pool- if you want to call it that, was refreshing for a little cool-down, but if you want to seriously swim or sun; forget that thought. The only chairs and benches were strictly for sitting.
The French Quarter was 2 or so blocks away. After dinner and navigating through huge crowds it was a pleasure walking back to the hotel where it was nice and quiet. There were just enough people around to keep you from feeling as though you're walking in an unsafe area.
The breakfast which was included was far from the typical continental. There were sausages, eggs, make your own waffles. Cookies were provided at all times.
Check out was a breeze, but - "ouch!"- the bill for parking was $51.00 for 2 days!

We Stayed At The COUNTRY INN AND SUITES For One Night On Our Way To Florida. It Was In A Great Location, A Short Walk To BOURBON ST and JACKSON SQUARE. The Staff Was Wonderful. The Bartender Was Great, Bringing Us Drinks While We Were In The Pool. It Was Quaintly Decorated, WithThat "NEW ORLEANS" Feel. The Room Was Clean And The Bed Was Comfortable. It Was A Good Deal For The Price.

I stayed at the Country Inn and Suites for a conference. While not flashy, this hotel was comfortable and a great place to stay. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The little gift shop sold beverages and snacks at very reasonable prices. There is a free public access computer for easy internet access in the lobby. Continental breakfast was a nice perk in the morning. One morning I opted for beignets at Cafe DuMonde instead, and this was just a short walk into the French Quarter. There is a little bar in the lobby, but we did not use it. There is some variability in rooms. I was disappointed that my room did not have exposed brick or a refrigerator, but the room was still adequate and surprisingly quiet! The location is great. It is a $28 cab ride to and from the airport. It is a short walking distance to the convention center, the French Quarter, the St. Charles Ave Street Car and lots of really good restaurants. Check out the Cuban restaurant next door. It was really quiet the night that we went there, but the food (and the mojito) were really good. I also agree with the other reviewer that you should check out the New Orleans School of Cooking, which is nearby. My only issue with this hotel was some minor housekeeping issues, but I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to others.

We booked this hotel because of the great reviews and great rate we found ($60 on hotels.com).

We were not disappointed. The free breakfast was okay...sausage, belgian waffles, pastries, etc. In room fridge was unexpected. Did I mention the FREE Wifi?!

The only drawback is parking...$24. We were lucky to find a free spot on the street but those are rare.

Nothing fancy, but very clean and comfortable and very near to Bourbon St., Canal St. streetcar, Harrah's and Riverwalk. I barely had to take any cabs. Very walkable part of town. Continental breakfast was very basic, but served my purposes nicely. I was thrilled at how well the air conditioning worked; and it was quiet. I especially enjoyed the walking tours with Historic Walking Tours. Well informed guides. Swamp tour (Louisianna Tour Co.) was highlight of my trip...how often do you get to hold a baby alligator in the swamp? Restaurant food was disappointing. Best meal I had was at the New Orleans School of Cooking. Very fun class. I loved New Orleans & hope to go back again some day. Oak Alley Plantation was another highlight. The trees were amazing!

We just returned from a Memorial Day weekend stay at the hotel. This was exactly what we were looking for in a hotel, one with a lot of character as one of the other reviews states. It's a beautiful hotel and is close to many of the tourist attractions. We walked to everything we interested in seeing. The only drawback was the noise in the mornings as we were located close to the elevators and just up from the breakfast area on the second floor. Other than that, we loved our stay here and would definitely return!

The staff were very helpful each time we asked for anything!
