Historical Traveler Reviews Staybridge Suites New Orleans
Simply Wonderful in The Crescent City
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.
Loved Staybridge Suites!
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.
Great location, but...
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.
Our room had apparently been flooded at some point previously (yes, hotel just opened in Feb.), possibly by the sprinkler system, as the carpet was buckled.
We were told that parking was "on site", which is not the case, so time was consumed waiting for valet when the car was needed.
They offer "light cleaning" M-F. which consists of making bed, replenishing towels, and emptying of trash. By the third day we were there, no service, light or otherwise had been provided. We had to call the front desk three times over a six hour period to have someone come get the trash! Their excuse was "we have a full house".
The hotel hs two elevators to accomodate 18 floors of rooms. It got to be a joke among the guests, who began to get on even when it was going the opposite direction, just to ensure getting on!
The "full breakfast" for the four mornings we sampled it, provided no orange juice (they were "out"), no waffles (as advertised), in fact consisted mainly of rubber eggs and sausage. There is no way to heat any of the bakery items, etc. I realize folks don't go to New Orleans for the hotel breakfast, but it should be provided as advertised.
Over all, the hotel itself is nice with large rooms, which is rare in N.O. Hopefully, the staff will eventually get the hang of running it.
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.

Just winding up our 4 day visit in New Orleans. If you are looking for a great place to stay, especially with children, this is it. We booked the 2 bedroom 2 bath with kitchen, living, and dining area on the Staybridge website, saving alot using the internet saver option. This is a brand new hotel, very nicely decorated, very roomy, 3 tvs in the 2 bedroom suite, free internet, free breakfast, and Tues-Thur, free dinner if everyone is too tired to go out. Pool area is nice, right off the dining, common great room. Staff here has been very pleasant and helpful. Valet parking $24/day which is average and somewhat below average in some areas. The location is great. Two blocks up is the St.
Charles Street car which travels to Audubon Park. Two blocks over east is Canal Street and the French Quarter. Two blocks west is Julia Street and Warehouse district, hotels, museums, art galleries and restaurants.
Two blocks down is the River and River Walk Shopping Mall. We felt very safe here, one evening my girls and I walked over to shop at River Walk, lots of people out walking to dinner, shopping, or Harrahs Casino. This is the only hotel in this location that offers apartment like rooms, and at a great price if you book the internet saver rate.
Also, there is a very nice exercise room and a very nice laundry room, free. We plan to stay here again.

Hmm, yes. Quite lively indeed. Kind of like old Montreal, but on acid.
Presently, we felt the desire for an oyster dinner and obviously decided that the restaurant with the lineup must be the best bet, just as the rain started. We were entertained by some superheroes(?) along with three sailors ashore from the USS Cole (not a very likely story except that it was in fact parked just down the street).
... affected by the flooding from Katrina. More about that later. On the swamp tour we did not get to see any gators because they be hibernating and didn't want to come out for the bit of sun we had. We did see a raccoon, several different swamp birds, turtles and lots of wild pigs. All the animals are so used to the tour boats who bring marshmallows (of all things) to feed them. One of the pigs jumps onto the side of the boat and begs for marshmallows. I have a video of ...
... year, and proceeded to set up camp and hike for six hours into the canyon, getting very crisply tanned. The views were rewarding and breathtaking. It's difficult to be wowed by something you have seen dragged through magazines and adverts, but no photoshopped picture could take away it's grandeur. One of the mornings Tom spotted a lady with a camera pointing at our tent, he gingerly asked her what she was looking for, and she immediately pointed to the deer right ...
New Orleans or NOLA or the Big Easy is an interesting place, very different to what I expected visually, where as Charleston was exactly like I thought! Yet another city with very distinct good and bad areas although when walking around its difficult to tell exactly where those lines are. The French Quarter is a mix of French and Spanish influenced architecture with narrow streets and plenty of people and cars on ...
... No cars, no size. That was it. Bad Luck #2. Us and at least 15 other people stranded at the airport were not impressed. But what can you do? They told us to catch a cab to our hotel and they would reimburse us. We did. It was quite a ways to our hotel. We finally got there and got booked in.
