Just a few blocks from French Quarter

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 28, 2005

This hotel is a New Orleans landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's old, but the room was comfortable, and the best of all, you won't have to pay too much for it.

It's a few blocks from French Quarter, where everything is happening. You can walk or take a taxi, but I recommend the tram, which stops right in front of the hotel on Canal street.

A restaurant, a bar, and meeting rooms inside the hotel. Internet connection is available in every room for a fee. (The connection wasn't good at all. But, who want to work in a room, when you are in New Orleans?!)

Directions: A few blocks from French Quarter.

Take a taxi from the airport. ($18/person)

Best place to stay at the airport in Kenner!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 8, 2005

The newly-renovated Radisson at New Orleans International Airport in Kenner got a really bad reputation during its conversion from the old Airport Plaza hotel. But that was then and this is now. The construction work appears to be complete and our stay there was 100% satisfactory. This is the first time I've had anything good to say about a hotel near MSY, so please don't hesitate to give the place a chance. We only paid $41 plus tax and service charges by bidding on Priceline.com, and I can assure you it was worth it!

New Orleans good accomodations

This hotel is now called the Park Plaza. the rooms were clean and inexpensive. It is far enough from the night life that you can still get a good nights sleep, but close enough that you can be in the middle of the action in less than 5 minutes.

The service is great!!!! There is a street car stop right outside the hotel.

Now the PARK PLAZA

by written on December 13, 2004

We went to this hotel on our tour yesterday to pay as their main desk is in the hotel. The name of the hotel has changed to the Park Plaza. It is no longer the Radisson. You can see the new banner over the marque at the entrance.

It is a historic hotel and is right on the streetcar line, but it would be too far for me to walk down to the French Quarter and I wouldn't want to do it at night.

The only other item of note is that there are only 2 ladies room stalls on the ground floor near this payment desk, so I went up to the next floor where there were much more in the way of facilities.

Unique Quality: This isn't a AAA hotel, but they give it three diamonds and indicate that it is a Large-Scale hotel.

AAA says the rates for a double are $109 to $209 from October to the end of November which is the most expensive.

Directions: On Canal Street

This 759-room historic hotel is a New Orleans landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (also features a complimentary guest shuttle that departs hourly to the world-famous French Quarter).

Unique Quality: The employees really go out of their way to ensure your stay is a pleasant one...the only drawbacks being small rooms and valet parking (at $28.00/night).

Historic Charm

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 17, 2004

This 759-room historic hotel is a New Orleans landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Unique Quality: The service is first class and the employees very friendly. They work very hard to ensure your stay is a satisfying one and if you are there long enough, they'll greet you on a first name basis. The only negative things about this hotel are the small rooms and parking (it doesn't exist so you end up paying the valet to park your car at $28.00/night).

Radisson - not the best location for your stay

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 26, 2004

We stayed at the Radisson Hotel on Canal Street. While the rooms were modern and clean, the location may not have been the best. You can indeed walk to the French Quarter and Bourbon Street from the hotel, but it’s a long walk, and it’s not a walk you would really want to take at night. You will pass by a few shady blocks before getting to more busy areas of the French Quarter. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus that drops off passengers at different stops along a main route. The shuttle bus is available every hour, but if you can’t wait, you can take a cab for about $8.

Rooms and amenities are what you would expect from a Radisson, but the next time I visit, I will probably stay at the W or Sheraton, which are closer to the action.

Unique Quality: One great thing about this hotel is the rooftop pool and two hot tubs.
