“Wear shoes.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

My main complaint with this place is that the carpets in the rooms are filthy. Walk around the room barefoot, and then step into the shower and you will see dirty foot prints.

There is no parking for large vehicles as in buses. And this being a hotel booked by college athletic conferences, this is not good.

Breakfast is a bit pricey at $14.08 for the buffet and coffee. Have I told you what you can get for less than that at a Cracker Barrel? And the table legs were not level causing it to rock back and forth and constantly splash coffee from the cup and make a mess.

Next trip to this area, I think I'll go down the block to other hotels to stay.

We booked here bc everything else in town was booked. It is easy to find and you can get downtown quickly. Staff was nice but they failed to clean our room 2 days in a row. First day we just rolled w it but the second time we called the front desk. They remedied right away but we had to hang downstairs while they cleaned. The manager bought us 2 drinks and really tried to smooth it over. We were fine. Just seems weird. Room is small compared to newer built hotels but clean. Only issue is lack of lighting. The place is dark! Kids eat free!

First 2 rooms they sent us to were occupied. Try walking in on someone at 230am. Not cool. Place smells like smoke and mildew. If it wasn't 230 in the morning, we'd go somewhere else. Can't wait to check out in a few hours and find something else. Stay away!!

I like the fact it was a surprisingly good hotel with clean rooms as well as a very helpful staff. It was close to everything as well. The only negative for the hotel was parking which was very difficult depending on the time of day.

Our family of five stayed one night in a double suite (two queen beds and a pullout couch in a separate room) pre-cruise. It is often difficult to find a hotel with one room that accommodates five people. The room was clean, large, small kitchenette... more than adequate! The hotel is an older building, but has been nicely upgraded.

We took the shuttle at the NOLA port the next day for $10 per person, all arranged by the hotel. Since we were a group of five, the pre-cruse stay package offered by the hotel was not economical for us, but you can still take the shuttle without booking the package. The shuttle was well worth it. It is only about a 15 minute ride and the streets by the port are very convoluted!

Our boat was delayed, so we had extra time in the morning. Maya at the front desk arranged for the hotel shuttle to take us to the shopping mall. She was so helpful!

Breakfast was not included with our room price at this hotel.

I'm writing this review with mixed feelings. Possibly mold in the hotel--maybe (probably mildew), but was I imagining it from reading other's reviews previously? The bed was comfy. The gym was okay until they came and told me to stop jumping around. If that is a good location, then i guess it depends on what you are needing to be close to!

My mom had surgery at Tulane and this was our "home away from home". Our second time to stay here related to medical appointments, testing. Staff is INCREDIBLE, facilities are older but maintained. We will NEVER stay anywhere else when in NOLA when it comes to Medical visits. We stay in a suite for an amazing price. It helps get the entire family comfortable while we are there! Thank you so much for always being so caring, Holiday Inn in Metairie!!
