Residence Inn New Orleans Covington/North Shore

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This property reflects all that can be good in a Marriott brand - the room was well appointed, large, and well-designed, the kitchenette has updated appliances, the pool and hot tub area are clean and well maintained, the room is immaculate, the staff is gracious, and the location is far enough off of the main road (about .25 miles) that there is virtually no noise.

Hotel is in excellent condition and very well maintained. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed the amenities throughout including lobby / lounge area inside, outside patio seating, pool areas and basketball court. Free breakfast was nice and included hot items not just pastries and such. The room was spacious and clean. Loved the amenities of having a full kitchen and living area in addition to the large bathroom.

I'm staying at the Marriott Residence Inn - North Shore at 101 Park Place Blvd. I'm here on business and the location is perfect for my needs. The building and property look very nice and well maintained. My only complaint is that there is no port cochere (covered structure over the driveway). When I arrived it was pouring rain and without any cover, I was drenched by the time I got inside. There was a young man out front with a large umbrella, but in efforts to keep himself dry as well as cover me- I ended up soaked. Besides, the puddles were deep so I stepped in water -soaking my shoes and hems of my pantlegs. Check in was quick and the front desk staff were very friendly. My room was on the 4th (top) floor and it was surprisingly big. Upon opening the door, the room looked more like an apartment. There was a distinct living room, kitchen, dining area, work station, bedroom, and bathroom. The furnishings were nice and modern. The kitchen has a full-sized stainless steel refrigerator and microwave. There is a 2-burner stove and dishwasher in the unit as well. Pots, pans, and dishes are in the cabinets for guests to use. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the sheets felt nice. The bathroom was large and two people could get ready at the sink if necessary. The only downside was the tired desk chair at the work station. There were many tears in the leather/vinyl seat cushion. The chair has seen better days. Overall the unit was very clean and I appreciated having a small kitchen for snacks and to reheat my leftovers. The hotel offers grocery shopping service, but I didn't use that feature. Unfortunately there is no shuttle service from the hotel to surrounding shopping centers or entertainment. I took an Uber to nearby restaurants for $6 each way. There is a seafood restaurant within walking distance. I ventured out to Don's Seafood Hut which was just down the block; maybe a 5 minute walk. There are also other fast food and sit-down restaurants within 7-10 minutes walking of the hotel. Each morning there is a hot breakfast buffet downstairs. The turkey sausage is always horribly dry, but the rest of the selections are very good. The coffee is surprisingly good! I had two cups each morning and it really was strong and delicious. I also appreciated the hot oatmeal and fresh fruit offerings. Overall I love this place. I got a lot of work done at the workstation and the free WI-FI worked very well. The price was very good. I would definitely come back.

We selected this property because of its location, its reviews and its pet friendliness. We were very happy with all aspects of our stay, but, had I been paying the bill (it was my son-in-law who ate the pet charge) I would NEVER have agreed to pay them a $100, non-refundable fee to have an extremely well behaved golden retriever share a room! I would give 5 stars to the hotel EXCEPT for this ridiculous policy..

We stayed one night on a recent road trip. Pleasant front desk staff. Hotel is located back from a busy highway- no road noise to disturb one's sleep. Browsed the small room with eats and snacks. Pleasantly surprised to see a frozen gluten free dinner, available to make in the room! Hotel was clean. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

Facility had a nice two room suite and was very comfortable. Sitting room was nice. Bed was comfortable. Master switch in foyer controlled many lights. Quiet establishment and the complimentary breakfast buffet was good. One complaint is that parking was limited. More likely to find parking in the rear of the building. The facility had a nice fire pit outside.

Excellent motel. Convenient to I - 12. Clean spacious room. Be wary of pricing as it changes whenever. Had a room booked at $93 + for one night. Asked to book on the return trip at the same price and was refused. So I booked elsewhere.

My students were on a Mardi Gras Tour and Residence Inn is my preferred hotel anywhere. It was clean, we'll maintained and beautifully kept. I like the location, tucked away behind some trees near a nice community. It was quiet and cozy yet held a level of marriott luxury. It was a great property. My students and I enjoyed it.

We when traveling through south east Louisiana we try to stay at the Marriott Residence in Covington. It is a good location for us to stop and a comfortable place to stay with good places to eat nearby. The rooms are nice and the breakfast is good.

Staff was kind and courteous - A special thank you to Ruston and Deborah for making is feel welcome !!!! The happy hour was enjoyable, the location was convenient, rooms were clean. It wasn't fancy but had everything we needed - thanks !
