The Residence Inn in downtown New Orleans is a great location to home base during your NOLA visit. My husband and I stayed for a few nights in the spring of 2014 and found you can walk to all the popular neighborhoods and main sites from here. Near the Warehouse/Arts District we also discovered there are many restaurants within walking distance of this hotel. After booking a last minute trip to New Orleans, I was able to use my Marriott points - so honestly this is how I picked our hotel for this trip. 🙂 Even though a Residence Inn isn't a trendy boutique hotel or large resort - they are always a nice, dependable stay.
This Residence Inn had a very friendly staff who gave us great local restaurant recommendations! All the things you expect from a Residence Inn were provided; daily breakfast included, afternoon snacks and drinks on certain days, free wi-fi, and a 24 hour fitness center. This Residence Inn also had a lovely little courtyard and patio area with small pool.
During our stay, we lived in a room with a separate bedroom/bathroom and small kitchenette. Even though we didn't cook, it's a nice feature for extended stays. You can always count on spacious rooms at a Residence Inn (great if you're traveling with kids!). If you're a Marriott rewards member or are looking for a convenient location and good value hotel, the Residence Inn New Orleans Downtown is a terrific choice!
Until the next adventure - bon voyage!
