Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, New Orleans French Quarter

Third trip to NOLA-third hotel. Previously stayed at Bourbon Orleans and Hotel Le Cirque. This was at least 5-times nicer and 1/3 the price. Since we were there for Thanksgiving we had forgotten about the bayou Classic, one of the loudest drunken brawls in all of civilization. A lot of fun if you are involved but the opposite if you are not. That made us appreciate the location which was a convenient walk to the French Quarter, Restaurant August and Emerils but away from the worst of the brawl. Staff was great as was breakfast. Our Suite overlooking Magazine was fairly large. Rooms were pretty new and well maintained. I don't think I will even look anywhere else next time.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a mix of business and pleasure, and really enjoyed it. The hotel is clean, has excellent free wireless access, and great customer service. In addition, it has one of the best free breakfasts that I've experienced; it always included the usual items but also a hot item (sausage, eggs, etc) as well as yogurt and fruit and a Belgium waffle bar. I initially was concerned with this location since it is on a side street, but I felt very safe and convenient to my destinations (Riverwalk, casino, French Quarter). It was quiet, too. The bed was very comfortable, and the bath products were of good quality. The free cookies at the reservation desk in the afternoons were a nice find also. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever in the area.

I've stayed at the Country Inn & Suites a number of times now when visiting New Orleans for work, and have been continually impressed with what you get for the money. Good location, agreeable staff, interesting rooms, with some history to the building. It's not likely to compete with the upscale hotels in terms of service, amenities, or overall quality, but it's far above what I would expect for a Country Inn or other hotel in this class. Since my last stay I've recommended it to a number of colleagues, all of whom have been happy.

It's in a great spot,:across from Cuvee Restaurant, within walking distance of Bourbon Street but far enough away to be able to effectively escape the debauchery & noise. Rooms can sometimes be small, but I appreciate the unique character they've been able to bring to each one.

Pool is very small; small enough to feel crowded if another family is in with you.

I stayed here for several days in November while at a conference. The hotel is as everyone says - quite nice, clean, good value, great location. It's not high end, but it's more than acceptable and has everything you need. It's new and the decor is in fine shape. Internet is free - a big plus. The breakfast is just okay, but that's to be expected. There are a few coffee shops in the area I'd recommend instead including Community Coffee House. Overall, it's a good deal.

We booked airline and hotel package for 3 nights through TripAdvisor and were very happy with the experience. The hotel is a couple blocks off Canal Street and from the edge of the French Quarter. It's convenient for walking to the French Quarter, Harrah's, the Convention Center, RiverWalk, the trolley lines, etc. I had hoped my walking would walk off the food, but NO SUCH LUCK! But, if you don't want to walk or can't I'd say it may not be the best location. Our room was "standard" and on the bottom floor with a non view of the parking lot and cars. It wasn't too big, but it had a really great bed, a desk, chair, suitcase stand and adequate bathroom. We had to keep the drapes closed for privacy, but since we weren't in our room often, it didn't matter. It was quiet. Our TV was not flat screen. They had wireless internet, but slow. The pool at the hotel is very small- heated I think, but more the size of a large soaking spa with no jets. It is in a small, lovely, charming courtyard with little chairs and tables. The free breakfast is good. There is a lounge area with a bar and tables, as well as a sitting room with fireplace. Very pleasant. Criticism: We arrived at 4:30pm- well after check in, and our room was not ready. They were very nice and asked us to wait 15-30 minutes, but not even a free drink at the bar!! I imagine there are better rooms than ours, but we did feel that we had a deal and again, didn't really care it was so small. New Orleans is a great place to visit, even if you don't want to imbibe. Little jazz shows, food, charming neighborhoods and moving stories about Katrina made it a memorable trip.

You really can't beat the location of this hotel. It's close enough to walk to the French Quarter, Harrah's, and the Superdome., yet far enough away from the noise. We were really quite pleased with this place and all of the staff were extremely friendly. We did return to our room one day at 3:30 p.m. to discover it had not been made up yet. I made a call to Robert at the front desk and he immediately alerted housekeeping......the room was ready in less than 30 minutes! Oh...I almost forgot to mention......the beds are incredibly comfortable!
