I was in New Orleans for a conference and needed a reasonably priced, conveniently situated hotel, and Drury Inn fit the bill on both counts. But I have to say that, if I were spending more time or on vacation, I might choose an upgrade instead. On the positive side, the bed was comfortable, and the fridge and microwave came in handy.
The included breakfast was decent, though not a lot of variety. I did not take advantage of the dinnertime food, but again, it looked decent, if monotonous. The hotel is located just a few blocks from Canal Street and the French Quarter, is steps from the streetcars, and not all that far from the Convention Center and the many nearby attractions (casino, aquarium, outlet shopping, etc.). Now for a few negatives. Several reviewers have mentioned that this hotel is VERY brown--and yes, there is a LOT of brown, everywhere. Carpets everywhere, both in the hallways and in my room, could have used a good vacuuming. The pool is much smaller than it appears in the website photo, and packed with people on a hot weekend evening--in other words, too small for a hotel of this size. A barking dog in a nearby room woke me at 1 a.m. one morning.More
