“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The staff is great! The rooms are nice, clean and quiet. Management and desk staff will bend over backwards to try to accommodate guests. Housekeeping is also very helpful and efficient. The A/C works great! The restaurant food is not great but ok for a hamburger and a beer. The restaurant service is great!
The hotel location is good and there are many restaurants nearby.
The three elevators are small and the wait can be long when crowded.
This is a cruise hotel and can be completely booked before and after cruise dates. We stayed on an oversold date. The staff handled it well, they were attentive, quick, knowledgable and helpful!
I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of hotel are quieter.

Stayed here 1 night pre-cruise. Wanted some place close to the airport due to late arriving flight with a free shuttle. Went to baggage claim, got bags and called hotel. Then across to the Transportation Center. Transportation Center is in the parking garage and that is were all hotels pick up. Shuttle arrived about 20 mins later. Ride to hotel took about same amount of time. Check in was prompt and courteous. I am a Platinum member and they offer a number of different freebie choices. I took a free breakfast buffet. Breakfast next morning was good with lots of choices. Room was on the 8th floor and very quiet. Lots of traffic could be seen outside but none heard in room. Hotel had a cab driver that took us to the port for $10 per person. Would definitely stay here again. All employess very extremely friendly.

Enjoyed our stay. The staff are so cordial especially Daryelle and Kenyetta in the restaurant and Kimberly at the bar. Great experience. Room was clean and nice although bathroom could use an upgrade. Even regrouting the shower and refinishing the tub would be recommended. Still a great value. Thanks for the experience.

Good room. We were on the top floor and had a sitting room. Nice to have the extra space. The hotel isn't anything special but it is clean and the staff were great. We had a good dinner in the dining room and breakfast was fine the next morning. The hotel has a package which includes a few free drinks, free breakfast, free parking for 7-10 days and a good shuttle service to the cruise port. The shuttle also picked us up at the end of the cruise and brought us back to the hotel. The only reason I didn't rate the hotel as top notch was that there really wasn't anything close by. but....the convenience of the cruise package was perfect for us!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the larger rooms.

We are in town for the Super Bowl with a two double beds room which is quite small. The desk is against the wall with little room to manuver the chair due to the bed being just a couple of feet away. The bathroom is small. Overall the room is jampacked. It is clean and the cleaning staff do a good job. The beds are comfortable which makes for a good night sleep. Since we spend little time in the room that makes it much more pleasant.
There is a small refrigerator that works well keeping food cold. Some hotel minifriges don't.
The tv channel selection has way too many channels so finding something to watch is not a problem.
There is a very nice restaurant bar with a friendly staff and tv's to watch ESPN et al. The food is good and it seems like everywhere in New Orleans comes in an abundance.

Room Tip: I would go for one of the suites if you want more room.

Dear bluewaterdown,
Thank you so much for letting us know about your recent stay at our hotel during the Superbowl Weekend. I hope that you were a Ravens fan, if not I'm sorry your team did not win. It appears that there was an opportunity for larger accomodations, and I wanted to apologize to you that are rooms are not the size you were expecting, but I was happy that other aspects of your stay were satisfactory. Again, thank you for writing your review, and I hope that you had safe travels home.

Great room with benefits! Package included one-night stay, free breakfast, free shuttle to and from cruise port, and free parking. With Priority club membership, also received 10% discount in restaurant. Salads are huge and quite good. Our only problem was not getting hot coffee--it tended to be lukewarm.

Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Location is close to Acme Oyster House, KMart, and Rouse's grocery store (all on Veteran's Highway).

Would definitely use this hotel again for this kind of package deal.

Probably one of the better hotels in the area, but that's not saying much. Rooms are a bit dark and dingy but clean enough. Bathroom is clean but my window leaks during rain. Half the machines in the fitness room broken and not fixed despite complaints from several guests. No free breakfast, you have to pay for it and the selection of food is quite greasy and unhealthy. The adjoining bar is quite OK and the food is good if you like burgers and ribs etc. Staff are friendly in a standard, customer-service sort of way but do not seem to take up any issues seriously. I would stay here again because there is not much else around, but if a Springhill Suites opened up in Metarie I would be out of here like a shot.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the elevators due to noise. Rooms on the north side of the hotel are cold durin...
