“Nice hotel close to French Quarters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We spent the weekend here. Rooms were bright and clean with nice view of the Mississippi River. Just two blocks away from Canal Street, and another two to the infamous Bourbon Street. Close enough but not too close to the action if you ask me. I was content at the hotel bar with the live piano music at night. Front desk recommended some nice restaurants to try. Conveniently located across the street from Harrah's where you can find gambling and a nice nightclub.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your feedback.

We are minutes away from the French Quarter as well as many great attractions New Orleans has to offer. We take great pride in our location and service levels. There is no better place to experience all New Orleans has to offer while being far enough to relax when you need to.

Sincerely,

Loews New Orleans Management

This ia a great Hotel for people who love to travel with their pets and want to stay in an upscale location. The staff was super friendly and treated our dog just like another guest in the hotel. They furnish your room with food and water bowls and pet tag in case your pet should stray away. Great location about a block west of the french quarter and a half block from the river. Very upscale in every aspect and we will definately return to Loews.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river on an upper floor.

We've never stayed in a Loews hotel previously and were a little nervous of what we'd find in downtown New Orleans. We found this hotel exceptionally well run with all the staff from reception through the guys on the door absolutely brilliant in being helpful beyond the call of duty.
Rooms were spotless and very well equipped and the hotel is exactly in the right place to avoid the excesses of the French Quarter whilst being within easy walking distance of all the main attractions. We were able to walk to restaurants and bars at night without feeling to insecure in a strange city.
Overall we found New Orleans a fascinating place and would love to go back.

Green Features: As a specialist in this area I felt the hotel was taking a number of the right steps - air-conditioning and lighting in hotels tend to be problematic demonstrated that some thinking and action had taken place to mitigate harmful impacts.

My husband and I spent a week in New Orleans while attending a convention. The Loews Hotel is very classy with top notch customer service. Our room was very nice, decent view, good size. The location is awesome, we were able to walk in different directions to find restaurants, shops, etc.
Highlights: The customer service- from the bar to the concierge, attentive and polite staff.
The Pool- make time to spend a little time in the pool area. Indoors, beautiful, peaceful. Music from the spa is piped into the area. Nice hot tub, sauna, padded chairs. I didn't use the fitness room but it was large. They had a pitcher of lemon water in the fitness room that was so refreshing.
The Robe- I lived in the robe while in the room, very comfy.
The only issue I can think of was that I had a little trouble communicating with the maid service, and their towels always felt slightly damp.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

The customer service from the bellman, to the concierge, to the maid service, to the front desk was fantastic. Clean, large rooms, great location, we loved it all. We walked to Cafe Du Monde, french market and Bourbon street. All of these are very close to the hotel. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Grand King was very large.

My husband and I stayed at the Loews New Orleans Hotel while attending a convention there. First of all our room was beautiful...big and with an wonderful view of the Mississippi River. We were on the 20th floor. At first I wished our hotel was closer to the French Quarter but this ended up being great. If you wanted to go to Harrah's it was across the street and one night we attended a dinner cruise on the Creole Queen. We walked the 3-4 blocks led by a wonderful little marching band. If you wanted to go to the French Quarter the taxi rates were very reasonable $5-7 but you could also walk if you wanted to.

The buffets that the hotel provided during the meetings were awesome. All the employees were so friendly and helpful and while they were all great my favorite was Brodie at the front desk. He helped me so much several times before and during out stay. A++ all the way!
