Hotel staff were very friendly!! The room was nice. The bathroom needed some work. The shower had no pressure at all. The hotel was in a great spot if you don't want to be right in the French quarters.

Decent hotel with a great reputation. I've stayed here twice. It's about a 15 minute drive from the French Quarter. The rooms are clean and the neighborhood is quiet. There are sexy soldiers walking around outside because you are right next to the base.

This location is only minutes from Downtown New Orleans. The area was quiet at night. Very quaint. Clean rooms. The lobby is very nice, there is a small business area for guest use. The facility is across the street from the YMCA if you want to go over to swim or exercise indoors.

For an affordable, safe, convenient location, we enjoyed our stay at the Federal City Inn. Though in Algiers, you are on a naval base, very safe, and literally ten minutes from the French Quarter and other side of the river. The rooms have the additional features of a refrigerator, microwave oven and electric stove, making it ideal for week long...

We spent two nights here over the weekend. Check in staff were friendly and we had a good size room with a kitchenette. Nice and clean, issue with toilet flush sorted straight away. The great thing with this hotel is that if you time it right you can be in canal street within 20 minutes of leaving your room. Ok,...

This room was clean and spacious, and the best benefit--it was pet friendly. Great value and way to Uber into downtown. Check-in and check-out was quick. Lots of parking. Great stop on our travels back to Florida.

Staying in Algiers

Neighbourhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
