Iberville - Home Away From Home
Got a great deal for the Iberville Suites on Expedia.com, but we really had no idea how great a deal it was until we got there. We stayed for five days over Christmas week, and the Iberville was the highlight of our trip. New Orleans is always wonderful, but the Iberville puts the icing on the cake. Whatever the day brought, we could not wait to return to our "home" at the Iberville. Suites are classy, warm, clean, and comfortable with great amenities. Breakfast is included and NOT a continental roll with coffee. This is a full buffet with GREAT food. But best of all is the staff of the Iberville. There people are warm, gracious, classy and TRUELY care about your stay. They are very proud of their hotel, as they should be. We've stayed several places in New Orleans - - but our search is over. The Iberville is here to stay - - -
Front Desk, Okay Everything Else..Great!
We found a great rate through the Iberville Suites website however, I would recommend calling them directly because later on when we had problems the manager told us she couldn't take anything off of our rate because we booked it through the internet. The hotel is beautiful. We were very impressed with the room also. The front desk service was lacking since it did take us about 3 hours AFTER check in to finally get into our room. And this was after we told the front desk clerk that we needed to speak to the manager. The manager was great and gave us a $65 credit to use towards room service breakfast the next morning. When we did order breakfast it was wonderful!! All in all, if we find another rate like this I'm sure we'll take advantage of it!
the service! the decor! the location!
My companion and i were incredibly pleased with the Iberville Suites during our stay in New Orleans. Every staff member we encountered, from the doorman to the front desk clerk to the housekeeper, was friendly and helpful.
Our suite was perfectly lovely and offered plenty of space for the two of us to relax in the living area after long days spent walking the French Quarter. The sumptuous dark wood furniture was obviously well cared-for and the rest of the decor was a tasteful indication (rather than a loud statement) that yes, we were in New Orleans.
As others have mentioned the Iberville does provide Bath and Body Works toiletries. i did not bring any of my own items and i was pleased to find that i did not need to. Shampoo, conditioner, and two types of soap are all generously provided and replenished as they are used.
The breakfast provided by the Iberville is also generous and pleasing.
Croissants and various pastries, eggs, bacon, potatoes, fruit, cereals, bead and bagels for toasting, yogurt, and of course the Belgian waffle makers. Juice, milk, coffee, and the makings for tea and hot chocolate were also provided.
Breakfast seating in the vast lobby can be a challenge at peak times, but i enjoyed the luxury of lounging at a couch or chair and ottoman.
There are a variety of spots to enjoy breakfast or even simply while away some time at any hour of the day in the various conversational and traditional table seating areas.
All in all, i would highly recommend the Iberville to anyone simply on its own merits. If one is expecting to make use of the Spa and Lounge services offered by the joint Ritz-Carlton so much the better, but i surely felt surrounded by luxury at the Iberville Suites as it was.
Close to everything
Great hotel, well located in FQ, within walking distance to everything.
Had some problems with room, not cleaned and toilet seat not attached, management took care of it immediately, staff was very friendly, morning breakfast was perfect.
Another good hotel in the Quarter
This is another very good hotel in the Quarter. It is in a fairly quiet part of the Quarter but only a block from Bourbon St. and a block off Canal St. All of the Quarter, the shopping sections of Canal and Riverwalk, and the streetcar are an easy walk. The staff was fine and unobtrusive. The suites are very nicely furnished but small and a trifle dark. No views to speak of from the rooms. The included, buffet breakfast was very pleasant, with excellent, abundant food (hot and cold) and a pleasant dining area. This is a very good property, one of many in the Central Business District and the Quarter. With a charge of over $200/night it was not a "good deal" and could be bested by many other properties.
Stayed at hotel the first week of December. Staff is very helpful and so friendly. The room was very nice and comfortable. When you left a daily tip for maid service they would leave you a nice note thanking you. Hotel was close to everything. Would stay here again.
We got a quote on a rate and decided to give it a try. We were surprise how nice the room was. We had a two room suite that everything you could want. The hotel is about two blocks from Bourbin Street. From the hotel we were able to walk to Jackson Square, the French Market, and the Riverwalk. The French Market and the Riverwalk was somewhat a long walk but very enjoyable. Plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars along the way to visit and rest. I would highly recommend this hotel, especially if you can get a good rate. Our rate was cheaper than the any on Bourbin St. It was also cheaper than the Hilton or Sheraton on Canal and every bit as nice.
recommend to stay in french quarter
we stayed here from 12/27/03 to 1/5/04, it was our first visit to new orleans and it is an amazing time to go(new years and the sugar bowl).
we took the airport shuttle to the hotel it was about $50 for 2 of us round trip. the hotel was in an excellent location, it was 2 blocks away from bourbon but far enough away that you didnt hear anything. we walked everywhere french market, cafe du monde, jackson square, riverwalk, cemeteries, canal street, streetcars (which took us to the garden district for 1.25 a person)hell we even walked to the superdome for the sugar bowl. the location probably cant be beat. as for the hotel the breakfast was good but it was kind of packed and pretty hard to find a place to sit and eat so a few days i just grabbed a coffee and muffin and brought it back to our room. the room is pretty spacious, it was a 2 room suite so it had a fridge, pull out couch, 2 televisions and a sink in the kitchen area. the bedroom was kind of small and there was not enough room to place your clothes but i was actually expecting a smaller space before we got there. one other note, you have to take a elevator to the 2nd floor where the lobby is and then you have to take another elevator to the room(which is kind of a pain after having too many drinks on bourbon street). i would recommend this place in a heartbeat for anyone looking to stay in the quarter but you want some peace and quiet too
No complaints, loved it, will return this fourth of July!!!
This hotel was an all around great place to stay. I must admit, at first I was a little worried staying here because I had not heard of the chain before. Being this close to the French Quarter there shaky margin can be pretty high. However, upon arriaval my fears were quickly dispelled. Our check in was prompt, and the staff was friendly. This hotel is managed and staffed by the Ritz Carlton. The same building houses the Iberville, Ritz Carlton, and the Masion Orleans. The breakfast buffet was cause enough to stay again. When arriving at the airport, Look for a limousine driver named nelson. The bell captain provided us his service to and from our hotel.
Iberville Suites and parking questions.
Hello, my family will be visiting NO in early July and we're considering the Iberville Suites. Anyone have any info on the place? Looks like a good location and great rates, but I'm not too fond of the $28/day parking fee! We're driving over in a conversion van and it would be nice to not have to pay an outrageous fee for valet parking. Would we be better off parking at a garage or the airport and taking a cab to the hotel? Also, any other suggestions for a suite stay at $90/night? PS: Have heard St Charles Tavern has a great breakfast. Any opinions on this place?
Re: Iberville Suites and parking questions.
Not sure about your hotel, but if it is in the city of NO, walking is the way to go. My husband and I were there a couple of years ago, and took a cab to and from the hotel to airport - we used our feet to get around. NO is an easy city to do this in.....we stayed at the Hilton on the river. Unless you have off the beaten path activities, do a cab and use your feet.
Re: Iberville Suites and parking questions.
we stayed at the iberville in Feb of this year.. We were sooo pleased.. However - you DONT need a car...It is with walking distance of Bourbon street - like 2 minutes ! You will find the rooms great - clean and large..The breakfast that is included with your stay is incredible.. you can have your choice of fresh fruit , bagel,yogurt ,etc.. and Hasbrowns , eggs , bacon.. and make your own waffles ! The staff here was very accomodating and polite.. We are going back in Feb of 05 and will definately stay here..! feel free to email me if you have any other questions.
