We took a detour from North Louisiana on our anniversary weekend-forgetting that it was also St. Patrick's Day! We ended up in New Orleans and enjoyed touring many familiar and favorite neighborhoods. We made our way slowing down Magazine Street close to where we onced lived and realized that a St. Patrick's Day parade was wrapping up!

Desperate to find accommodations my husband walked into the Drury Inn on Poydras St. and booked the last room of the hotel.

The lobby was lively with happy hour and we enjoyed a quick glass of wine before going to our room on the first floor! We were amazed at the quality and comfort considering the low price we were offered! ( Ask for those military and senior discounts.) The staff was courteous and friendly, the room quiet and comfortable!

The inn is close to the quarter and cost a mere $6 for a friendly cab ride! We were dropped off right at the start of the parade on Bourbon St and enjoyed a after-parade drink in another hotel on Canal. We were fortunate to meet the Grand Marshall's family and enjoy their story of life in and around New Orleans!

Parking is extra but well worth the price and peace of mind knowing your car is being cared for in an off-site location.

Room Tip: Great location to The French Quarter! Leave your car parked and take a quick $6 cab ride!

I went to NOLA with 4 friends for my 30th birthday weekend. We had a 2 room king suite. The hotel is in a safe area and a short walk to Bourbon st and the French Quarter. The 3-free drinks and snacks at happy hour were a great little perk, although I was only there twice at that time. The staff was great- the room was always cleaned and towels re-stocked. The cot I requested for my room was very comfortable. Dogs are allowed in this hotel so I had requested an extra cleaning before-hand, since one of my friends is allergic. They did an excellent job and she had no problems. Highly recommend!!

Pleasant staff, very comfortable room, free drinks, free food and a 5 minute walk to the French Quarter at a great price compared to "In the French Quarter."

Only one whiney complaint - $25 ++ per night for the car.

This hotel is a great value, excellent location, and great staff. It offers hot breakfast items and a 5:30 kickback buffet; baked potato, chicken strips, hot dogs, mac and cheese, plus three drinks apiece. Soft drinks, coffee, and popcorn were available throughout the day until 10:00 pm. For $25 a day they offer off-site secured parking which is well worth it. If you cross the street from this hotel, you can catch the St. Charles streetcar. We purchased a day pass for $3, and you can get on and off any of the buses/streetcars in the city. We were there three days and had no need to use our vehicle. A must see is the World War II museum. There is a combination ticket for the Insectarium, Aquarium, Zoo and Imax, but they were closed on Monday so we did not get to do that. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view and were given a corner room on the 7th floor

My husband and I and a group of friends stayed here during our friend's wedding. This place exceeded our expectations in every way. It is clean and organized and the staff is very friendly. It is located close to everywhere you want to go in New Orleans. What really makes this place, though, are the perks: the free WiFi worked without any problems, the nightly happy hour was perfect for our group to get together before going out, and the free breakfast in the morning was a great way to start the day. If you go during the warmer months, make sure to check out the rooftop pool. It is clean and the view is great!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a non-smoking floor. 9th floor has great views and high ceilings
