“Nice Easter Weekend stay at the Drury”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

My family and I spent a three day Easter weekend at the Drury in New Orleans. The location is very good. It is about a 10 minute walk to the Canal Street edge of the French Quarter. It is also very close to the St Charles Avenue Street Car Line ($1.25 each way if you would like to go into the Garden District or even farther up river.) It is about a 15 minute walk to the Superdome and to the next door New Orleans Arena (The Hive). Go Hornets! The free breakfast at the Drury is a real bonus. The breakfast food choices (eggs, waffles, sausage, french toast and biscuits and gravy were more than adequate. In the evening they offer "heavy snacks" along with three free drinks. Free self serve pepsi products are available 24/7 and popcorn is available for an evening light snack. The hotel service was fine. Our very basic guest room was not huge but we didn't seem to mind. They have 2 computers with printers available in the lobby for guest use for things like checking in for flights and printing of boarding passes. I also used the guest computer for a little surfing. They have a small, but nice, roof top pool and hot tub. Towels are available in the pool area. There are a few restaurants nearby, including the Bon Ton Cafe (only open M-F) at the corner of Magazine and Poydras. But there are hundreds of other excellent restaurants scattered throughout New Orleans, including some within reasonably easy walking distance in the French Quarter or Central Business District. The cab to and from the airport was $56 each way plus tip, for our family of four. It seemed to be about a 15 minute ride to the airport from the Drury. For Roman Catholics, you have a couple of nearby choices for Mass while at the Drury. We walked over for Easter Sunday Mass at Saint Patrick's (724 Camp St.). We were in and out in 45 minutes.My children really appreciated the brevity of the Mass.To summarize, we liked the Drury a lot. We would probably go back to the Drury in a future visit to New Orleans. Excellent value for the price. Very good location.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite, if available.

We were impressed with the entire stay at this hotel. Exceeded our expectations for decor, service, and quality for the price we were paying in downtown New Orleans. Nice sized rooms in this converted office building. They really put out a nice breakfast and the 5:30 - 7pm happy hour with adult drinks was unbelievable. It's only a couple blocks from Canal Street and the French Quarter. We walked to and from multiple times, and they were the most quiet, uneventful walks we've ever had. We didn't worry about being alone late at night. The walk to the French Quarter is quick, and the cross street leads right into Bourbon Street! We walked everywhere - to the Riverwalk, to the French Market, and it all seemed like short distances and well lighted.

Stayed here with 3 18year olds for the Final Four. Absolutely perfect location. At the corner of Burbon (well, it turns into Burbon at Canal) and Poydras which is 4 blocks or so from the Super Dome.
Had a corner two room suite. Good Breakfast, better snack bar in the evening. Don't really need dinner if you are on a budget. Staff is wonderful. Location even better. Wish the windows would open but the building is old and lovely. They are about to embark on an addition and remodel. Probably would still request the original part of the hotel when we come again. Will stay here whenever we are New Orleans. If only OSU had won. . . . . .

Room Tip: We asked for and had a corner room. Would think the street facing rooms would be best.

We stayed here for a pre-cruise hotel and loved the location. To tell you the truth I do not ever think that I would want to stay direcetly in the French Quarter unless the hotel is located far enough away for all of the partying on Bourban Street. The hotel was clean and beds comfortable and a very good value. The only thing we did not like was when we walked inot our room there was a strange oder, like someone had smoked in there and they were trying to clean it up. Besides that a very nice place to stay in New Orleans and if I evre visited again would more than likely stay there again

Hotel a few blocks away from the French Quarter. It is also convenient to transit. The room we received was a good size and comfortable. The hotel offers a good continental breakfast in the morning, popcorn and fountain drinks in the afternoon, and kickbacks starting at 5.30pm. There was some good munchies especially for teenagers. There offer free wi fi, which was added bonus. We would stay here again,
