It's wet!

A travel blog entry by jott086


We were up early for cooking school this morning. I was feeling the ravages of the two hurricanes I drank last night! We didn't actually cook at the class we just listened to the history of Louisiana settlement and why it is necessary to eat lots of butter and cream! Apparently one CAN substitute lighter cream and use less butter but as the cook says, "Why"? The shrimp and artichoke soup was fabulous bot the crawfish etoufee was very ...

So many stages, so little time

... shrimp for Beautiful, Polly ordered the oyster Po-Boy and Tyler had the Cajun Trio. All were happy but Polly who felt underwhelmed by his creamed spinach over fried oysters. But he shrugged it off and we were back on Bourbon St. headed to Lafitte's, the oldest bar in America.

Reaching Lafitte's, Caroline's feet were getting tired so we split the pack and Wife and I made our way back to the hotel by way of a wedding parade clearing our path.


On the road to N'awlins

... and we guessed they might be true judging by the packed tables and the queue that snaked its way around the building! We got into the queue, enjoying listening to the jazz that people on the street were playing, and actually had lucked out into joining the takeaway line, so it didn’t take too long before we were being served. The counter was manic, and there was a line of people in the background frantically forming the little dough square and chucking them ...

MARDI GRAS!! Check that one off the list!!

... There was plenty of bead throwing and sights to see. The guys lifting their t-shirts and doing dances in the street was so funny! It seems that costume wearing, any costume, is the normal. We actually saw a man in a superman costume MINUS the tights..his cape was flapping around and I saw his rear while Joyce got the full frontal view and with big eyes said "I saw weiner"!! Hilarious!! This is people watching, party happening, and crowd crazy, to the ...

How Did This Happen?

... that I was not physically uncomfortable even though water was dripping into my eyes and my squishy shoes were getting muddier with each step. Other than the lightning, the real risk factor here was that my phone, which occupied my back pocket, was
soon going to be drenched. Fortunately for me, my route this morning was the KC Trolley Trail and just ahead was a “Doggy DooDoo” station with plenty of plastic bags available. I misappropriated one, stuffed my phone inside, ...

    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.

    Absolutely perfect!


    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.

    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.
