“Great Location!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Hotel is in a great location in New Orleans, near the Riverwalk and Harrahs Casino. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are nice, we had a great view of the Mississippi River from ours. Very nice bar and restaurant, great breakfast. Restaurant has "free drinks" at different times, bes sure to check when. Easy walking distance to the French Quarter, great restaurants, Riverwalk, French Market, and the Superdome.

I have found the Loews chain to be a nice upscale chain with great service. The NOLA Loews is no exception. Renovated upscale rooms, nice gym, great people, I would definitely stay here again. Did not try the restaurants, but there are so many great restaurants within walking distance

great location, right next to Harrahs Casino which was a plus because this hotel charges $43 per night to park. we parked in the Casino parking area and avoided this charge. booked on ancillary site for 2 double beds, was told 2hrs prior to arrival the double beds were a go. received king bed on arrival due to lack of availability :( room and bathroom were small, typical shower/tub combo.. not 4star quality. the room was clean and the beds were comfortable, so with a rollaway provided the room situation didn't ruin the trip. would stay again, but not for full price per hotel site.

My husband and I stayed here for his birthday! The hotel is right across the street from the casino and riverwalk! The guest services and bellsman will make you ferl like your in Beverly Hills! We were able to get couple massages, which of course we paid for. The staff in this area were good but didn't meet the hotel standard. The location is good, we walked to the best eating and shopping areas and was close and far enough from Bourbon Street, which is the area where all the clubs are! Our room was very very clean, with updated fufurniture. We enjoyed everything about our stay!

We just got back from a two night stay at Loews New Orleans hotel. We were traveling with a small dog. We arrived for check in at 4:30pm. Valet was efficient and right on Poydras St. The garage is actually the first few stories in the same building as the hotel. The hotel is in a good location right by Harrahs. There are a few nice restaurants a few hundred feet away (Manning's, Grand Isle etc..) so you will not go hungry. The walk to the French Quarter is not bad. I recommend a pedi cab so you can see the sights along the way.

Back to check in. I initially requested a river view Grand Double Queen room. Unfortunately, all pet rooms are on the 11th floor and there are no river view rooms there. Check in was quick and we went up to our room. We walked in and immediately noticed it smelled musty. After drawing back the curtains we noticed alot of dust in the room. The final straw came when there was some stains on the sheets. It appeared that the room was cleaned a while back and just sat there. I do not know how a stain that big went unoticed. We called the front desk and they quickly gave us a replacement room 1121. This room was not dusty but there was a stain on a pillowcase. My guess is the pet rooms get more beatings than the other rooms. The carpet was frayed in a few spots, probably from dogs scratching.

The Grand Queen room is big with nice 10' ceilings. The view is ok. The bathroom is nice with a separate tub and big shower. The charge for a pet is only $25 for the whole visit, alot cheaper than most hotels.

We also noticed that the carpet in the hallways was not that clean. Again, my guess is that the "dog" floor gets less attention than the rest of the hotel. The elevators are relatively old and creaked alot when moving.

The service of the hotel, from front desk, valets, doormen and room service was outstanding. The only negatives was the housekeeping I mentioned above.

We did not eat at the hotel restaurant but we ordered room service a few times. Breakfast and dinner were about average from a hotel in this class. We have stayed at the Hotel Monteleone, the Astor Crowne Plaza, Royal Sonesta, Sheraton, Hilton Riverside, Provincial and I would rate Loews ahead of all but the Monteleone, Royal Sonesta and Hilton Riverside (Riverside wins out because of river view).

However, if you are travelling with a pet, this hotel is pretty darn good. Overall we had a nice stay and other than the issues with the original dusty room and stains on beds, it was a very good stay. The only dog friendly hotel that we have stayed that was more "pet friendly" was Hotel Zaza in Houston. Loews does a good job maintaining a dog friendly atmosphere.

If I had to travel again with our dog, I think I would stay here again.

This is the third time I have been at this hotel. All have been fro company national meetings. All three times, immaculately clean, great service and a great location outside the war zone of the French Quarter but a very short walk to get there. Any time I am in NO I am staying here. Not a big casino person but Harrah's is across hte street if you are into gambling and malls are down the block. Stay here, no where else.

This hotel is near everything--French Quarter, Warehouse, casino, Garden District. The room I was in was huge--bigger than my first apartment! It overlooked the river and was very comfortable. The rug was in need of cleaning and repair but not a concern. The concierge was extremely helpful and really understood what I was wanting to do, he gave me great information. The conference staff was awesome as were the bellmen. The front desk staff were good and just okay. Too bad they were not consistent.

I would be happy to stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up and over looking the river.
