We stayed for 2 nights in November prior to a cruise. The room was clean, nice little kitchen area if you need that. The staff were friendly and helpful. Best of all, we were allowed to leave our car while we were on the cruise, saved us some money! It's not the fanciest, maybe a bit dated, but room was...

I have mixed emotions in writing this review. I have stayed at this property numerous times and have always been pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and the grounds. It is convenient to attractions if you have a car. It is near the levy which is great for taking a stroll or bike riding. The area is quiet and...

An interesting motel... It appears to have been part of the military accommodation for an old Navy base before being re-purposed. We chose this motel because prices downtown were much more expensive and parking was problematic. We were able to walk around the levee to the ferry terminal in about 30 minutes (with good views of the Mississippi), then took...

Stayed one night for a family pre-Christmas gathering last December, in Saturday, out Sunday. Sorry I didn't write a review then. I am looking at staying again this year, so that tells you something. Unsurprisingly, it feels like a visiting officers' quarters for fairly senior military families, nice, well-furnished, well-run, but not overly luxurious. Fortunately, we were able to get...

Although it's just across the river, here is kind of in the middle of nowhere. However, you don't need to worry about safety if you have a car. And it's 10 mins drive to downtown attractions. Room is large and clean, with kitchen. Painting is navy blue and I really like the style of the room. Better go to a...

This hotel is really remote, but very convenient to Canal Street and the French Quarter by ferry (only $2 one-way). There is free parking and wifi, and it's easy to park (free) at the dock in Algiers Point. There are no restaurants or other entertainment near the venue, but it's a short drive to the dock area where there are...

It's a real clean hotel with great staff but it's in a weird neighbourhood. It's in the middle of nowhere. If your hungry make sure you have change for the vending machine because there is nowhere to eat in the neighbourhood. The price makes up for it. The ferry to the French quarter is only 5 mins away by car....

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
