“Best Hotel in New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2008

We play tourist in our home town all the time ,we love New Orleans and we love Homewood suites.We stayed one night for the Van Halen concert.We haved stayed in just about every hotel in New Orleans and I must say we love this Homewood hotel the best.This hotel even beats the hotel which is ranked one of the top in the U.S.A.,without naming names.The main reason is amenities.The rooms have a bedroom,living room,equipped kitchen.Our room also had a balcony.The hotel also has an indoor pool with a hot tub,and a workout room and I must mention the free hot breakfast with eggs, grits ,bacon ,etc .Now which hotel can beat all of this? It is very close to the Superdome and the Arena and within walking distance or a cheap cab ride to the French Quarter.

Came down to New Orleans for a weekend bachelor party with a bunch of other guys. Have never stayed in a Homewood Suites before, but have stayed in a Residence Inn, so had some idea of what the experience would be like. This is a Residence Inn copycat and actually pretty similar to an Embassy Suites, except that the lobby is smaller and has no atrium, however the in-room kitchen is larger.

All in all, it was a great stay. The suites were a great size, perfect for sleeping four people and the bathrooms were large as well. Hotel's location on Poydras is useful to getting to the casino as well as the Quarter and the free morning breakfast, while still heavy on empty carbs, did have some fruit and other choices. Also, the hotel's in-door pool and hot tub were a nice touch. Service was wonderful, very friendly staff who also kept the place in spotless condition. The housekeepers did a good job too.

A few items however.... On the weekends, its ridiculous to close breakfast at 10am. Let people sleep in and keep the breakfast open for at least another hour, what the big deal? Also, the decor of the rooms, while new, is nauseating. The couch is purplish brown, the wallpaper in the bathroom is like puke green and grey, reminiscient of a hospital waiting room or nursing home. Just awful. Also, someone pulled the fire alarm at 5am on Sunday morning and we all had to evacuate the hotel, which as unpleasant at this sounds, actually wasnt as bad as Id thought it would be. You're basically sleep-walking anyway and after about 10 mins your back in bed and back to sleep in 30 seconds. I think we got one of the rooms comped that night for the inconvience, actually.

Would I come back? Probably not, want something a little sexier or at least something with a more local touch, but the hotel served its purpose for our weekend flawlessly and will continue its real mission of providing rewards points to plenty of satisfied in-and-out biz travelers.

The hotel is in a great location, a few blocks from the French Quarter and a few blocks away from Harra's. There was a minor problem one night and the management took remedied the situation without even a slight hassle. I would reccomend this hotel to everyone.

This is the best hotel in NO if you want a nice, family-friendly hotel within walking distance of all of the city's major attractions. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the breakfast is delicious as some of the restaraunts' in the area. Very nice staff and top-notch service. The indoor pool and hot tub was probably the best part.

One of the nicer and better run Homewood Suites, it is a very good location for those doing either the Super Bowl or the Convention centre but somewhat of a walk to the Quarters. Big rooms with separate kitchen/sitting room with pullout bed. Free internet that works well and a better-than-average free breakfast. Management is personal and attentive. Pool is large enough for some lap work and the fitness room is adequate. Recommended for long-stay professional working CBD or for a family looking for a strong bargain while on vacation.

We stayed at the Homewood Suites before a cruise a couple of weeks ago. There were six of us in a two bedroom suite. We found the hotel to be in a great location - walking distance or a short cab to the French Quarter but NOT in the crazy French Quarter! Neighborhood does get a little iffy if you walk a few blocks the other way though. In general the accommodations were wonderful. The hotel was clean, the suite was nice and the breakfast was good. Would definitely stay there again.
