Federal City Inn & Suites

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Arrived after dark, having to give cab driver directions (?), who said he didn't go over to that side of the river very often. He commented on the questionable safety of the area, which we found totally unfounded. The room was spacious, had a kitchenette, and very comfortable beds (best nights of sleep I have had in a long time). There is nothing nearby as far as restaurants, but there was a convenience store at a 10 min walk at most, which had "Brothers Chicken". After being up for 17 hours and traveling, it was the best option we had. Seriously, it was some of the best chicken we had while in NOLA. The Ferry was about 1.5 miles away, which we walked the next morning, walking along the levee. Excellent walk, excellent view. Noted a Subway restaurant not far away from the hotel while enroute. Made it to the ferry, but unfortunately it was Sunday, and the ferry did not start operating till 10:30 AM, and it was only 8:45. Wish we would have known, but shame on me for not checking this out in advance. Wishing to maximize our sightseeing time, we opted to Uber to the French Market ($11.00). High fives for Uber!!! For those who have never used Uber, I strongly recommend it. Also, they knew where they were going and how to get there (unique concept). I should also mention that there were many conventions taking place in NOLA while we were there, and all of the hotels we checked were running $$$$ per night, making Federal an extremely reasonable option,

Thank you to all o the staff that was so kind and accommodating during our stay! Great group of employees!!

Very plain, although clean and nice hotel located off the beaten path. Hotel was accommodating for the needs of having a place to sleep and rest between visiting New Orleans. Just a short drive to the ferry landing to take the ferry across the river to the French Quarter. plenty of security in the area. Lots of military at this hotel due to the naval training center just blocks away. Very peaceful location. I would definitely return and recommend this to people on a budget or with a family or children.

The hotel was cool. It was quiet and literally away from everything. The run was a little gross but I think it's because it needs to be replaced. Other than that the hotel was good for the price we paid. I would stay again if needed.

This is a nice, good but older and basic motel. Very quiet and clean rooms. Is very old a hasn't been updated in a while. They make up for that by great customer service and keeping everything clean. The evening desk attendant Dionca is friendly, beautiful and very helpful. I would stay here again.

Everything is good excluding far to center of city.

Good location to leave your auto for a cruise! Great staff!

Staff very polite and helpful. Clean rooms. Kitchenettes fully stock with needed ammenties. I will stay here every time I visit the Big Easy!!

We brought our bicycles and found this hotel perfectly located. Ferry dropped us off near downtown and we bicycled the garden district, bourbon street, and town. Best nights sleep in weeks.. Would definitely return.

Even though it's not located in the French Quarters it's still not far and very easy to get there. You can take the ferry but we drove and didn't have any issues with parking.

This was our second stay at FCI. We came back because our first experience was a 5 star! Cleanliness is extremely important to us and we like that our room, sheets and bathroom are clean! The front desk person, Linda was exceptional. She helped me find out mass times and locations to churches in the area. She was also very nice and professional. The location is out of the way, which is good and it is nice and quiet. We felt safe with the police department close by too. the only small inconvenience was that our electrical outlet in the bathroom was not working. so we couldn't use it to blow dry hair or shave. Also there was a toothpaste cap stuck in our bathroom sink. No big deal. We will be back and have already recommended FCI to others!

Take the ferry across to the French quarter from here Enjoy great local cuisine in nearby Algiers. Dry dock cafe for red beans & rice , Tout de Suite cafe for breakfast Large rooms with frig , microwave and cooking facility

This was a great hotel regardless of the low cost. We needed a place to stay before our cruise and this couldn't have been better. It was a short easy drive to the ferry that takes you over to the french quarter and the ferry was only $2 per person. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.

Stayed before a cruise,my second time,great staff,friendly,helpful,will be back next time im in New Orleans

Everything was great! I had a very bad day but when I arrived at the hotel the desk clerk was able to solve all my problems quickly.

The hotel was clean and staff was so helpful!! Will stay there again next time I find myself in NOLA

This hotel is great. Very helpful, unusal floor plans, clean, large, wonderful room, comfortable beds, great kitchen with everything needed. Large vanity area.. Best of all the ferry into New Orleans is a few blocks away--no parking issues and only $2, $1 for seniors. We loved the trip across the river and landed right at the edge of the French Quarter. Hotel is next to a Navy base area so great security too! Wi-Fi is best we have seen. Rooms seem very new.

Nice spacious room with fridge and microwave. Clean and well kept. Location is 5 minutes from the ferry and 15 minutes from the CBD and French Quarter. Also around the corner from a police department and a military training facility, so we felt very safe coming and going. For the price and free parking, we were very happy with our stay.

Was very clean. Location was great. Was quiet and the staff was great. Loved the room.

After the hustle/bustle of Bourbon Street, a nice relaxing visit. Enjoyed the restaurants/cafes in Algiers - much more laid back than across the river ! Great deal / value for the price. Includes refrig, microwave - roomy. would definitely stay again ! Friendly, helpful staff.
