Historical Traveler Reviews French Quarter Suites Hotel New Orleans
Highly Recommend!! Loved The Suites!!
I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to stay at the French Quarter Suite's Hotel! We were there for 4 nights and seen many things just from our balcony. The second night we were there we seen a movie being made, called Canal St. Brathel which will be on CBS Nov. 7th! The staff here was very friendly, clean pool, free laundry and parking was very secure! The rooms were large. The kitchen had a full refrigerator, kitchen table, microwave and a full functioning stove! Only 3 blocks from Bourbon St. We will stay here again when we come back to New Orleans!
This place is fantastic. The Staff are really nice and go out of there way to help you. The rooms are very well equipped and a pleasure to stay in.
We were travelling in a party of ten with an original booking for a 3-floor apartment, but they moved us into several other apartments so we were more comfortable. I cannot rate this hotel any higher. Really made our holiday.
Would advise anyone to stay. Its cheap, clean, very comfortable and the rooms/suites are well equipped.
The location is perfect. 1 minute walk to all the French quarter action.
My husband and I happened upon the French Quarter Hotel during a 2002 trip to New Orleans. We stayed with some friends in one of their three bedroom suites in the annex. It was wonderful. The rooms were all large, comfortable and well decorated. It seemed as if we were living in a house in the French Quarter!
We stayed there again in march 2004 in a one bedroom loft in the annex. Again we were VERY pleased! For only $100 per night we had a queen bed in the loft, downstairs a full bed, living room area, full kitchen and bathroom! It was great!
We will stay there every time we visit New Orleans.
Wonderful staff, comfortable hotel
After arriving from NY with my mum, husband and daughter we found our reservations at another hotel had been cancelled! Luckily the French Quarter Suites was next door. We tried them and after our bad experience with the other hotel's staff, we felt like we had arrived at a family member's. They were helpful, friendly and showed us a wonderful two-level suite in their annex that was incredibly good value. We ended up staying 2 more nights than we'd planned in NO. The courtyard is relaxing and peaceful. Rampart is a busy street but you wouldn't know it in the annex of this hotel. Velda (the manager) is fantastic and more than obliging. She's honest and up-front (telling us that she gets a fee for booking us on tours rather than us doing it ourselves, for example.) The staff were like friends, quick to serve and helpful. About my only complaint was that there was no crockery or cutlery in the kitchenette, but the room (a former apartment) was so lovely, comfortable and cool that we didn't mind. It seems a more family-oriented place and is a short walk to the French Quarter. I highly recommend this hotel.
Great Suites-Pet Friendly
Stayed at the French Quarter Suites with our German Shepperd. Suite was spacious and clean. Dog Park about 3 blocks away but also there is a wide grassy knoll between the two lanes of traffic in front of the hotel on Rampart perfect for dog walks. Staff is very helpful and pet-friendly (treats given on arrival and basically whenever the staff saw her). Parking is gated and monitored and very secure. A few blocks to Bourbon street and neighborhood toward Bourbon street is mostly rehabed residential area. Never had any problem with crime or felt unsafe on walks to and from Bourbon Street. Highly recommend-perfect location for pets also.
The Best Hotel Room In Louisiana
A friend and I stayed at the hotel and were charmed out of our minds.
The guest house was beautifully decorated; our room was perfect. We were greeted by the staff with a friendliness you can't find at a corporate-owned chain. I never wanted to leave and we could just stumble out our front door into the French Quarter or admire it from our window.
We loved it!!
Febuary 5, 2004Stayed at the French Quarter Annex with four of my girlfriends for a four day weekend. We had a suite (No. 20). Very large, nice room. Had our own entrance right off Rampart Street. We felt very secure. Water pressure in the shower could have been better, but for the price we paid for the suite we were not complaining. Would go back again.
Excellent choice in New Orleans!!
My husband and I stayed at the French Quarter Suites for a week and had an absolutely fabulous stay!!! The rooms were stylish and very unique.
The property of the hotel was very clean and secure and has a beautiful courtyard area with a pool. All of the staff were extremely helpful and courteous. For any questions or inquiries, ask for Velda. She was a fountain of knowledge about the french quarter and gives excellent recomendations on anything you might need. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone.
A great hotel and not in a dangerous neighborhood!
When I came across the review of the neighborhood being bad I was very surprised, and my first thought was that previous reviewer must have been thinking of another hotel. My wife and I have been visiting New Orleans for many years now, and for our last three visits we ve stayed at French Quarter Suites for the beautiful rooms, great service, and the very knowledgeable staff. We tend to park our car and leave it at the hotel and walk everywhere around the French Quarter after checking in, and never have either of us felt we were in a dangerous area. After walking back and forth from the hotel dozens of times now I am quite certain there are no projects nearby, much less any of them less than a block away. We ve enjoyed our stays at this hotel tremendously, and will likely continue to do so for many years to come.
OK hotel in Dangerous Neighborhood
Hotel experience as a whole was average considering this is an inexpensive hotel in the Vieux Carre area (French Quarter for you tourists). OK is about the best I can say for the room, service, cleanliness, etc. Now for the big problem with this location: Crime.
New Orleans for many years has had the dubious distinction of being the 'per capita murder capital of the US' and not a few of these deaths are from unsuspecting tourist who wander a block or two from where they should and wind up being shot by a 16-year-old junkie. Although 'officially' in the French Quarter, this property borders an area of town known for street crime, crackheads and tourist murders. Beware, "the Projects" are less than a block away. There is a police station in the area and you will see the NOPD watching their back in this neighborhood. If you are not uncomfortable with dangerous urban areas, or if you are a tough guy no one will mess with, this place can be a good deal. If you are an easy target for street crime, stay on the river side of the Quarter.

... serendipity" event... about halfway along Royal Street we came across a jazz quintet set up unofficially in the middle of the road called "Doreen's Jazz New Orleans". We could have missed it as there were other mediocre unofficial groups, but this turned out to be the best jazz we have ever heard. It was led by Doreen Ketchens, a 30 something black woman on clarinet and vocals, with her husband Lawrence on sousaphone, a drummer and guitar picker, and a fantastic young man ...
... anymore than 2 pancakes gets too sickly! After eating our pancakes we walked back to the hotel as we had had enough of sightseeing and I was starting to get really tired so I had a 2 hour nap which was nice :) Neither of us were hungry when I woke up so we decided not to bother going out for dinner tonight we'd just stay inside in the warm and relax. The group were meeting up at 8:30pm to go to a Jazz bar tonight however after ...
