Disgusting Buffet

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 30, 2012

If you ever wanted to know what it was like to be fed like a pig in a trough, then pay $30 and eat at Harrah's Casino buffet. The restaurant area was not clean or kept up -I was turned off feeling food crunching under my feet- and neither was the buffet itself. Old food crusting over on plates, food slopped in bins, it was hideous. The waitress kept coming by the table to tell us that she hadn't been to the bathroom yet, but left without clearing up anything off the table. A real mess. Eat in the French Quarter or even in the mall across the street. At Harrah's, you are paying to make yourself nauseous.

Beware Harrah's casino parking garage

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2009

Harrah's Casino offered us a free room at one of their sister hotels for a night, the Hilton Riverside. We stayed at the sister hotel On 12/21/09, but parked in the Harrah's Casino Parking Garage. During the night our vehicle was stolen out of their parking garage even though I still had my parking ticket and video cameras were present around the garage. Harrah's response: "we are not liable for spontaneous criminal activity at our garage. If you would have parked via valet parking we would have been liable”. However Harrah's does not offer valet parking.

Beware of the parking garage. It is unsafe. After this happened we are hearing of other instances of vehicle theft in the garage. The garage is unsafe. I would still like to know how they made it passed the exit gate and out the garage without a parking ticket.

We always have great service at Harrah's hotel even though we are usually staying compliments of the casino. The rooms are very nice with a large bathroom and comfortable beds. There is no pool, but it isn't one of the activities we would normally do in NO...so we are good with it.

Unique Quality: Great location next to the French Quarter.

Directions: Across from Harrah's Casino

Beautiful hotel with beautiful rooms, and in an excellent location. I've stayed here several times, but have never paid - I was comped by the casino. Rooms cost $70-120 based on website. Nice bar downstairs with live Jazz nightly. Walking distance to Harrah's Casino and the French Quarter. As a woman who has stayed here by myself, the security measures are appreciated (your room key is needed to operate elevators). Rooms feel very luxurious, and the upper rooms have stunning views of the city and/or Mississippi River.

Unique Quality: Live Jazz nightly in lounge downstairs. Stunning views of the city from the upper level rooms. Excellent location - walking distance from French Quarter, and faces the Uptown Mardi Gras parade route.

Directions: Canal Street - across from Harrah's Casino and the French Quarter

Great Hotel/one serious issue

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 10, 2008

Stayed there four or five times in last 16 months, all but one time room was "comp" because of our casino play. It is an awesome hotel for New Orleans and we loved it until:
Earlier this year we staggered back to the hotel from Pat O's and when we went to get on the elevator a clerk stopped us and said the elevators were down and would be about ten minutes to fix. Well 45 minutes later a crowd of tired tourists had gathered (it was about 1 in the morning) and we started asking "can we just take the stairs". We were told, "absolutley not!", then a few minutes after that a clerk took a test ride and declared the elevator safe. So, having waited the longest, about 1-1/2 hours at this point, we pushed our way onto the elevator. half way to our room the elevator stopped dead and all the lights went out. We were stuck for about ten minutes and the power came back on. Instead of continuing to our floor we were taken back to the lobby. Now the crowd was getting angry and a night manager came out and said "all your rooms will be comped", well, this was the one time we had actually paid for the room and we asked the guy if we could get that from him in writing and he laughed and said "NO". Needless to say the next day we checked out and we warn everyone we can to watch out for getting stuck in elevator and getting lied to by the managers! We were charged for the room and the desk clerks in the morning just said "sorry for any inconvenience". They thought at first we were kidding about the incident and tried to say they didn't know anything about it! It had affected about 2 dozen guests!

Unique Quality: Very nice accomodations, great views

Directions: on South Peters across from casino next to Gordon Biersch restaurant.

Best Hotel Experience EVER!!!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 13, 2007

From the moment I stepped out of the airport shuttle, I knew this was a special place. The hotel was recently remodeled after Katrina and is absolutely lovely inside. I had the regular "luxury" type room on the 6th floor. Harrah's comped me 2 nights free but the regular price is $129-$249 a night, as I recall.

A bellman met me right when I hit the ground and asked if i wanted help. We immediately struck up a conversation about auto racing like we had known each other for life. Check-in was quick and friendly. Everyone on the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly throughout my stay. Another bellman, who brought my suitcase up to the room, spent 10 minutes or so going over the features of the room and there are many...

~King size extra thick comfy bed with lots of pillows-even two body pillows
~Large flat screen TV with Hi Def, free cable and pay movies
~a HUGE bath tub, big enough for 2 adults to soak in-stacked
~separate glass shower with massaging shower head
~euro style WC for the toilet
~coffee maker!!!!
~lots of high quality soaps, shampoo and conditioner
~two phones, room service ready!
~fresh air machine
~marble table, comfy sofa and chair
~internet access

Room service was high but luckily my rewards points covered it. A club sandwich was $16. 3 beers, 2 bags of chips, a pretzel, a can of mixed nuts and a pint of Ben & Jerry's ran $30. Total $60 with tax and gratuity...Ouch!!

Bottom line: Finest room I've ever stayed in. I can't wait to go back!!

Unique Quality: A True 4 star hotel. You simply must stay here once if you get the opportunity. A beautiful and comfortable hotel with a staff that is always present to help you in any way possible!

Directions: S Peters and Poydras, across from Harrah's Casino.
