Building is old, needs painting, and replace rusty hinges, sprinkler, and carpet.

Fire alarm went off in the middle of the night -- no apologies or compensation.

Great location really good rooms great staff... good price

Good location. Thin walls. You can hear everything on the next door. Thus, it is impossible to sleep on a weekend

The staff was very friendly, the room was perfect it had everything in it that I needed plus a little extra, it was spacious and very clean would definitely book here again.

Very safe location, close to city. Very friendly staff

Very big room, with sofa, desk, iron, small kitchen with dining table, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Not far from the Downtown, if you have a car, drive into French Quarter only several minutes.

Great staff. Arrived several hours early and they were able to accommodate with an early check in...

Nice clean hotel. Just that the location is little out of the place

Good place to stay at if you don't plan to stay too much at the hotel. Great place to just rest at. A little outdated, but they keep it very clean. Has a little kitchenette, which is a big plus. Beds were adequate. Not many amenities to boast about. Warm showers and rooms are spacious.

Nice and quiet Staff is friendly,with washer and dryer,kitchen very convenient,I definitely would stay a gain

Federal City Inn & Suites is located in a quite area in Algiers across French Quarter on the other side of the Mississippi river. The Algiers Ferry Terminal is about 3 Miles away. You can take the ferry to the French Quarter for $2 exact cash, and it takes only 5 minutes avoiding traffic hassle and need for expensive parking place in French Quarter area. The hotel is in a quite area with no walking distance shops or restaurant. My room was spacious, and clean, but the fridge and AC were relatively noisy. They have free wifi, but it was unreliable, with intermittent poor slow connection possibly because my room was at the end of the hotel. Staff was friendly. Parking ample.

Although we did not have any large issue with our stay we had lots of smaller inconveniences that made our stay not enjoyable. Room service did not show up one day, even with the sign on our door. The fire alarm went off 2 times during our stay. The location and the reviews were deceiving as far as convenience, it was NOT easily accessible to the French quarter/downtown. We had loud middle of the night disruptions from guests/or staff every night. I would not recommend this hotel.

We have stayed at the Federal Inn and Suites several times while visiting family that live in Algiers Point. It is very convenient for this purpose. The building itself is dated but clean. They do not offer breakfast or very many other amenities. The suites are clean with a kitchenette and makes a good option for an extended stay. The kitchenette is good because there is not much in the way of shopping or dining in the immediate area. All that being said, the beds are comfortable and the shower is very good (although the hot water is dangerously hot on our last stay). The TV is average only. All in all, this is a quiet place to stay, away from the hubbub of NOLA - a good place to recharge before taking the ferry to the French Quarter for less quiet activities.

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!!
