A long drive from Houston took us out of Texas and into Louisiana and New Orleans. Louisiana is a very flat state with much of the land lying below sea level - the highest point in the whole state is only 500ft above sea level, this makes it very prone to flooding. There are limited opportunities for hill walking holidays! We had found real …
... for some as the Gay Mardi Gras rolled into town today. The streets were full of people in town for the Gay Mardi Gras, not that there is anything wrong with that. We did meet a couple when we were having half time drinks who we passed in the street after dinner and the little one was so plastered he did not even know who we were. Aunty Carol's comment was I think his girlfriend is drunk!
The next day was just as quiet, everyone else apart from me went on a ...
... that they hadn't boarded yet, and 10:00 was a pipe dream. Boarded about 10:00; took off about 10:45. Two very nice gentlemen next to me on the plane had similar stories to tell--one from Birmingham and one from someplace like Memphis. I think everyone on the plane had the same story--3 hours on some tarmac somewhere, waiting to get to Atlanta, and all pleased that the Richmond flight was equally delayed.
... when the sun was rising. Epic. The weekend was filled with lying in parks listening to the talented street jazz bands perform, sampling the fares of tents at the oyster festival and enjoying the company of some great girls from the hostel. On the weekend I also visited the Lower Ninth Ward. This suburb was one of the worst hit during hurricane Katrina in 2005. It was incredible to see the houses that have been abandoned since then. Left to the elements, ...

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.
We stayed at the Drury for the first time during Halloween weekend '03.
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.
