... cuisine for cheap. Evan had jambalaya and I had a beef po'boy. They were both so good! And huge too. At the cathedral there was a jazz band playing. We sat on a bench for awhile listening and enjoying the moment. Across from the St. Louis Cathedral is Cafe Du Monde. This is what I was most excited about in New Orleans. I got a coffee and beignets. SOOO GOOD!! I'd eat them everyday if I lived ...
... fun and is noisy. There is heaps of shops that sell voodoo dolls and mardi gras stuff. They also sell hot sauce.
Like Vegas, you are allowed to drink while you are walking along the street, so I got a frozen margarita and just wandered.

Its an early start tomorrow so early to bed.
... alligators and racoons alike come over and say hello and wait for marshmallows. This is how they draw the gators to the boat, through marshmallows and if bigger ones, chicken meat. We were blessed in that we saw many gators and the special ones he had told stories about. We got to hold the baby gator and have photo opportunities. They are so soft. I want one.

By the way that Captain America guy in the last blog was actually the owner of BB Kings bar in Memphis. We ran into him in the diner we had breakfast in both mornings. Interesting guy. He said Sydney was BB's favourite city to tour! The costume was a Halloween thing but it was 10 in the morning at the time. They really ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Drury Inn & Suites - New Orleans
Great value for the area!
We have stayed at this property twice (most recently, 1/04). If you have a car and don't want to wait for valet, this is the place to be.
They have a secured self-park lot ON THE PREMISES, which is rare anywhere near the French Quarter, Convention Center or casino. It is also near the steetcar line, another convenience. They have an above average breakfast in the lobby, and the corner rooms are spacious, another rarity in New Orleans. We will definitely stay here again.
The Drury Inn & Suites was a wonderful hotel to stay at during my recent visit to New Orleans. I was attending a conference off-site and the employees behind the desk were always helpful in getting me a taxi.
The breakfast buffet in the morning was also excellent! A great way to start off your day. Overall, the Drury Inn & Suites made me feel comfortable and relaxed my entire stay! It was also a nice short, safe walk from Harrah's near the Riverfront.
Drury Inn, New Orleans
My stay at the Drury was great. The staff was always helpful. I intend to continue going to the Drury in the future.
Very Good Location, Great Breakfast, and Great Happy Hour.
I was extremely pleased with the Drury Inn. We walked to Bourbon Street, Riverwalk, the Aquarium and the Theater. It was also 1 block from the St Charles Cable line and 3 blocks from the Canal Cabel Line.
The breakfast was wonderful. It included make your own Belgium Waffles, and a hot and cold buffet. The room was large and well cared for. Every night there were COMPLEMENTARY sodas in the refrigerator and a bag of popcorn in the microwave. This is a very good and fair priced hotel.
Drury Inns & Suites--Good Hotel
We spent New Year's Eve in New Orleans at the Drury Inn & Suites Hotel located on Poydras St. Pleasant hotel for the price we paid (got a special deal online a couple of months ago). Enjoyed the hot breakfast, but especially appreciated being able to self-park at the hotel and use our car whenever we wanted to explore outside the French Quarter, CBD, or Riverwalk. At $12/day, it's a great value versus $20/day + tip for valet parking at other hotels. Room was very comfortable, although a little smaller than we expected; friendly desk staff and cleaning staff that kept the hotel in excellent shape. We will definitely stay here again.
Shame on me. I meant to do this right when I got back after Thanksgiving, but the holidays took over. I never do these kind of things but the service, cleanliness, spaciousness and price of this wonderful hotel truly needs someone singing its praises. When you go to New Orleans, and you must go, it is simply another world, do plan on staying at the Drury Inn. I can't think of a negative, except perhaps a lack of a nice bar for drinks at night, but then there is english pub that serves great beef just down the road a couple of blocks on Poydras. And you're right on the trolley line to boot, just close enough to Bourbon Street to enjoy but able to say goodnight and have one.
Best Value in New Orleans!
We stayed at the Drury for the first time during Halloween weekend '03.
The suites are clean, comfortable, and HUGE, definitely worth the extra $20 or so. Nice marble bathrooms. The rooftop pool and spa was open 24/7 (at least while we were there). Complimentary snacks/drinks were offered Sunday evening even though it wasn't mentioned anywhere. The free hot breakfast is GREAT, belgian waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, etc. Plus, parking was on-site, gated, and also FREE (very rare in New Orleans). Staff was very polite. Lobby is very classy. The only thing that keeps it from being 5 stars is the furniture; although it is comfortable, it looks slightly worn and the style is out-of-date.
All in all, a very nice hotel with lots of free bonuses for a very reasonable price. Without a doubt, the best value in New Orleans, and we have stayed at dozens of hotels in the area. We will definitely stay here again whenever possible.
Great Value - Will Return !
Hotel located 5 minutes from Bourbon St. We stayed on the 8th Floor in a very nice room, king bed, big ceilings and a whirlpool tub. Microwave and Fridge in room was nice to keep water and other beverages cool.
Good little buffet in the morning and free high speed internet for those who have laptops.
We got a great Internet Rate and the service was good.
Will stay here again!

Pleasantly Surprised !!
I stayed in one of their spacious and lovely 2 room suites. The ceilings were very high making it appear even larger. They have a microwave and refrigerator in each room and even leave popcorn and soft drinks for you included in price. They provide a nice modest breakfast as well and self-parking was on premisis was only about $10/day. I would definently stay here again.
Very nice hotel
Stayed at the Drury in January 02. It's a pleasant walk (several blocks) from the quarter. It is an exceptional hotel for the dollar. Beautiful lobby, large very nicely appointed rooms. Staff was pleasant and helpful. No beverage outlet-but lets face it-your in New Orleans-it's not hard to find a bar if you want a cocktail! I would highly recommend the Drury-have also stayed in the Quarter at the Royal Sonesta($$$), Place d'Armes and Dauphine Orleans all are very nice I also recommend them highly. Royal St. Charles downtown is okay-rooms are smallish but certainly acceptable. Chateau Dupre was marginal-really needs renovating-pass on it unless you have to be as close as possible to the casino.
