    Mediocre at best

    by

    I spent 5 nights at the Doubletree while at the conference recently, and was underwhelmed at the location. For what I was paying per night, there was a distinct lack of ammenities. The wireless internet only works in the lobby; there were no fans in the shower to help dissipate steam; minifridges cost extra per night; room service only came about once every other day, forcing us to call the front desk if we needed new towels or whatnot.

    The location is really great however, right across Canal street from the French Quarter. It is clean, the beds were comfortable. But overall it was not worth the price.

    Good Central Location

    by

    We post this tip after Hurrican Katrina
    devistated the greater New Orleans area.
    We post the following pictures to show
    the good times, and we know that all the
    good times that New Orleans is known for,
    will someday return, and New Orleans will
    be more fun to visit than ever.

    Our Last Visit: December 2004

    Unique Quality: Great hotel, great staff, great rooms ....

    Near Harrah's

    by

    I didn't stay at this hotel. I did take two pictuers of it - once from the streetcar, and once from a tour bus. The AAA calls is a three diamond recommended Large Hotel.

    There is a fee for parking (Valet Parking: $28.00 Limited Availability) and for hi-speed internet. They give a range of between $89 and $345/night for a single or a double all year round.

    Unique Quality: It looks like from my pictures that it is right near Harrahs and therefore also near the ferry to Algiers, the Aquarium and the Canal Street Streetcar, and would be right across the neutral ground from the French Quarter.

    Directions: Corner of Canal and Tchouphlas From West: Exit Poydras/Claiborne South and right turn on Canal-13 blocks.

    Awesome location - Perfect Hotel

    by

    We sort of picked this hotel without knowing too much about it, but it turns out it was in a perfect location. We could not have made a better choice. Only blocks from the French Quarter and fabulous Burbon street and a very short walk to to the Aquarium and River Walk, we never had a problem getting anywhere!
    Then of course there were the signature chocolate chip cookies that the Doubletree always gives their guests...YUM!!

    The only issue that we had was transfer from the airport - the driver took a horrible way to get to the hotel since he had to drop other people off before us and then had to drop us off across the street which wasnt a huge deal except that we are terrible overpackers! But when we were going to the airport, the driver picked us up right on the side of the hotel. Be sure you arent waiting by the main entrance b/c you cant even see him from there. We almost missed it!

    Overall - I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

  • Double Duty from the Doubletree

    by

    Right on the edge of the Quarter, this was a perfect location for walking the "loop" down Canal, up Bourbon and then back to the room. Close enough, and yet far enough away. Hotel was decent, staff is extra helpful, and you can't beat the free cookie at check in.

    Unique Quality: Harrah's casino just steps away is a bonus too. Comps are possible!

    Directions: French Quarter

    Double Tree Hotel

    The Doubletree Hotel was close to our hotel and in a good downtown location! They are right next to Harrahs Casino and within walking distance to the French quarter, Aquarium/Imax Theatre and the Convention Centre.

Stay away from this Hotel

We stayed at the Doubletree hotel in New Orleans June 24 - June 27. I made the reservations in May. When we checked in, we were told we were the first to check in for the day, around 9:30 AM. We went to the room, opened the door and was immediately overcome by steam and heavy (perfume?) oder. Then we saw the bed was unmade with wet towels on it. The bathroom was steamy and there were towels and shampoo bottles spilled on the counter. We told the front desk that the room had not been cleaned. They replyed it would done immediately. Then, we waited 20 minutes for our bags to be brought up. We also told the bellhop and a housekeeper about the room. We were on our way to a conference that was starting within minutes so we left. We returned to the room at 8:00 in evening. Opened the door and nothing had been done. I called the desk and was put on hold, then disconnected. Had to call 3 times. We were asked what we wanted to have done, told them the room being cleaned or another room would be OK. Since, there were no other rooms available, they would have it cleaned as soon as possible. I don't think anyone there cared or understood that we were given a dirty room. We went to dinner and came back 90 minutes later. When we returned the bed was made and fresh towels were left. I had to dispose of the previous occupants garbage, empty bottles and soap. The management did call and said he was sorry for inconveinence and he would leave us an envelope for free breakfast at the desk. That night we could hear knocks and bangs from the different rooms. In the morning we could smell the bathroom being used by the other hotel guests through the vents, in all my years of travels that was a first! The next morning as we were going through the hotel, we noticed there was lots of deferred maintenence, carpets, baseboards, painting, on and on. We went to the desk to get our envelope and they didn't have a clue what we were talking about. We finally were given two cards for a free breakfast, which we used the next day. It was for their buffet, horrible food. Very nice waitresses, though. This place was horrible, noise, smells, etc. Thank goodness we were only there for three days of our seven day visit. We also stayed at the Bourbonorleans for 2 days (5 stars to them) and the Dauphin Orleans for 2 days (5 stars, also). Do not be afraid to stay in the Quarter, the hotels are lovely and the people are great. It is not that much farther to the convention center. We had never been to New Orleans before and we were unsure how far it was to the convention center. So that was why we decided to get closer. Really, really wish we had stayed in the Quarter the whole time.

Nice Hotel in a convenient location!

by TripAdvisor Member SheWhoWanders

The rooms are well kept, clean and well lit. The housekeeping and front desk staff were polite and friendly. The location is excellent walking distance to the trolley, french quarter, mall, casino, etc - centrally located. The staff were extremely friendly. I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I had a very negative experience a few years ago, but decided to try the hotel again - it has greatly improved. The only negative that I perceive is that it does not have local color - it is just a typical chain hotel.

Great Location in "The Big Easy"

by A TripAdvisor Member

October 1-3, 2004,
We stayed at the Double Tree Inn downtown across the street from Harrah's Casino. Had a great time, decent room that was recently remodeled (ask for floors 10 through 12 facing the river). Cookies were great every night and the staff was very polite and helpful (thanks for suggesting the Swamp tours John). This hotel is not the Ritz-Carlton, but then you're paying a lot less money- I'll keep the savings anytime. You can't beat this location either, if you're not too "fussy", then this is the hotel for you. I know I'll be back again!

Great for the Price

by TripAdvisor Member marthakjax

Just visited this weekend Oct 14-17. Was very dubious after reading the reviews but was very pleasantly surprised. The clerk was able to get us into king, non smoking as requested. Very clean. However, bathroom very small but so what. VEry convenient to Harrah's and French quarter.
Great for the Price, considering New Orleans. Will visit again.
