Staybridge Suites New Orleans
Travel Blogs from New Orleans
We left Raleigh NC at 9:20 am for New Orleans LA. We arrived approximately 12:30 pm and checked into the StayBridge Suites about 1:30 pm. We then headed out for lunch at a new restaurant in the French Quarter called Evangeline that had been recommended by the hotel concierge. After lunch we continued onto Jackson Square to watch the street …

6/25/2010 – Destination New Orleans, LA
Headed to New Orleans today. We met my
wife's brother and his 2 sons in New Orleans. My brother-in-law had
already reserved two rooms at the Staybridge Suites in the French
Quarters area of New Orleans. After checking in we ventured …
... br> 22/8/13 Had a good nights sleep and really enjoyed breakfast in the garden section of the hotel. Fred & I had a leisurely morning then set off down town to explore a bit more and have a bit of lunch. The French markets were serving nice food so Fred & I took a punt and ordered a gator sausage po boy. What's a po boy you ask? Well it's a soft french stick. The stall where we ordered our po boy looked to ...
... I really wanted to see. When we paid the admission, I asked where this exhibit was located and the attendant gave us directions. Well, none was found. We did see some other interesting artwork - a few by Picasso, Renoir, Monet, and others... But no O. Winston Link. We asked on the way out and they speculated that they were in the museum's collection, just not being exhibited now. What the lady apparently pointed me to earlier were the "photographs" currently ...
Laissez les Bon temps roulee! New Orleans was tons of fun, my favourite place so far! When we arrived we instantly went exploring as our hotel was just off French quarter. The hotel by the way was soooo beautiful, we had a fountain outside our room and it opened into the courtyard in the centre of the hotel that had the pool! We explored a bit of bourbon street by day which was already starting to get heated up ready for the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Staybridge Suites New Orleans
We love this hotel! Seven of us from all over the country met for an extended weekend in New Orleans. We shared a spacious 950 sq foot two- bedroom suite with Ginger. Julie & Sue booked two studios with Dana & Carisse. Everyone had all the comforts of home: coffeepot, refrigerator, range, dishes, cups, and yes-even a dishwasher! The location is in the trendy "Warehouse District," just 8 blocks to Bourbon Street, 1 block to Harrah's, 3 blocks to Riverwalk, 4 blocks to Canal Place, 2 blocks to the St Charles Streetcar. There is simply no better hotel for the value and location in the Crescent City. Yes, this hotel is in a neighborhood that is very "safe" to walk back to at any hour, which is always a concern in New Orleans. The overrated "W" hotel is across the street, as is the Loews' Hotel. Great Po'boys at Mother's on Poydras street, right outside the door. Oh- great complimentary hot breakfast and Managers' Reception, and even a cozy outdoor pool with chaise lounges. Attractive common areas: lobby, great room, and even a library with couches. There's also a 24 hour business center, with 3 computers and printer. You'd be hard pressed to find a better value, or a nicer place to unwind after either a day of sightseeing, shopping the French Quarter, or a night of merryment on Bourbon Street. Take the #11 bus on Magazine for a half hour ride to the Audobon Zoo-it's one block over. Walk to the D-Day Museum. Walk to the Aquarium or the Algiers ferry. The Morial Convention Center is just a few blocks away also. Oh, and we love Carisse and wish she spent more time visiting with us and less time in the mirror.
My mother, aunt and I stayed 3 nights on Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful stay. Loved the breakfast and location. Rooms are large and well-appointed. We had 2 beds plus the sofa-bed and paid $72 per night. Very happy with this place and will be staying again next time I return to NOLA.
More than impressed
So close to the Quarter, Harrahs, Riverwalk and the streetcar line that we didn't have to walk far to anything. Staff was wonderful and performed some extra requests without hesitation. The place is new and the rooms are huge. The free extras are very nice - hot breakfast changes daily - beer, wine and softdrinks in the evening and what they call the evening light meal can be more than that, full salad and cooked entrees with additional items and also changes daily. Very clean, safe and the location was great. I would highly recommend it and would stay there again.
They treated me like family!!!!
I just got back from a 5 day stay in New Orleans and I had an amazing time!!! I think part of this was due to excellent staff at the Staybridge!! From the time that we checked in everyone was so friendly and they catered to every one of our requests. We were treated like royalty! I hated to leave. I work in a service capacity and I hope that I treat my clients half as well as the Staybridge staff treated me. Cory, Toya and Keshawn were adorable and I look forward to seeing them then next time I return. They represented the hotel very well.
We have just returned from a 9 day stay in New Orleans and we loved the Staybridge Suites. The rooms were beautiful, very large, and very quiet. The front desk staff vas very helpful in providing information and was always very gracious. The business center is not quite up and running (no computers yet) but the staff was willing to gather any information that we needed. Our internet rate was amazing ($75). The meals provided T/W/Th were more than enough to make a dinner (sodas, beer, wine also provided), so we chose to have our large meals at lunch and end the day with the hotel offering. The hotel seems close to everything...2 or 3 blocks in each direction to most attractions or the street car lines. We had 1 rm with a sofa, 1 without, although we didn't need it in either room. You may want to specify when you reserve.
We booked the Staybridge which was located close to the casino and near the river front. Excellent location! The hotel recently opened and we were very impressed with everything. We had a king-size studio. Had a full kitchen with all new appliances, cookware, dishes, utensils, coffeemaker and coffee. While we didn't eat in our room, what a great deal for families with children. There were free laundry facilities in the hotel, which also is great if you're traveling with children. Courtyard pool had grills if you wanted to make hot dogs, etc. Every morning there was a breakfast served, with eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, croissants, rolls, etc. This was all included in the price of your room. Excellent! We usually stay at 4-5star hotels and were very happy that we booked at the Staybridge. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others!
Nice hotel with a little false advertising
The hotel was nice for the price, but I was a little peeved that their falsely advertised "sofa-sleeper" was non-existant. When I asked the staff about the "misunderstanding", they were completely apathetic and unwilling to provide the advertised accomodations. Overall, the hotel is nice, location is convenient, staff is unhelpful, and parking is expensive.
The location makes this hotel compelling, but it appears to be run by rank amateurs. We stayed there weekend of 4/16 during French Quarter Festival and were pleased to be close enough to activities to comfortably walk.
Great new hotel
Stayed at the new Staybridge and couldn't have been more pleased. They are only about 2 months old and still had a few computer problems to work out, but other than that we loved it. Rooms are roomy and clean.
The kitchette is well equipped and the location is great. The free breakfast was a full breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon, etc. And the location was very convenient, if you don't mind a little walking. Also, if you want to save a little money, I suggest you park at the lot across the street for $20/night instead of valet for $27 plus tips.
