Intercontinental - A little Peace and Quiet

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 26, 2010

The Intercontinental is conveniently located in the Downtown District at the intersection of Poydras (one of the main "drags" in New Orleans) and St. Charles Avenue. It is a short 5 minute walk from the lobby to Canal street. Very safe. Very quiet (as far as New Orleans goes).

The room was average in size and well appointed although amenities like in-room internet are extra. Wifi is free in public areas such as the lobby.

We aren't big on facilities, so I really can't comment. We tend to start sightseeing early in the morn and go to bed early. Working out on vacation just isn't my idea of fun.

Valet parking is available for $30 - $45 /night (roughly). I street parked for free : )

Unique Quality: I liked the Intercontinental's location. We almost stayed in the French Quarter - luckily we didn't. The French Quarter is where all the action is - its were the tourists are. Along with all that goes a lot of noise. Great while you're there, not so great when you ready to call it a day. The Intercontinental is only 3 blocks east of Canal St - the beginning of the French Quarter - but the noise level drops to almost nothing - or about as close to nothing as New Orleans gets. The hotel is also directly across the street from the St Charles Ave trolley - a New Orleans "Must Do."

Directions: Downtown District
Intersection of Poydras and St Charles Ave

Great hotel, for the business traveler but it works for anyone wanting to sleep outside the Quarter. About 3 blocks west of Canal St, on St Charles St and the streetcar route. A safe walk to and from French Quarter, and without all the chaos & noise of the French Quarter. The room had 2 beds, cable tv, big bathroom, and all the amenities you would need in a bathroom-shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion, etc…Also has a restaurant, bar and Sunday buffet—none of which I tried.

Prices usually run $179+, but I got it thru priceline for $55/night. Taxes and other costs brought it up another $10/night. I was here in June, so you won’t get that price during Mardi Gras of course.

Unique Quality: pool on the roof.

Directions: 3 blocks on the other side of Canal St. Two blocks from the French Quarter, four blocks from Harrah’s New Orleans, six blocks from the riverfront and – come Mardi Gras time – a front row spot on the St. Charles Avenue parade route
