Loews New Orleans has great value for their prices. The rooms are large and spacious and the staff is ultra friendly.. My wife stayed the night before our wedding in December of 2006 and we stayed the night of the wedding. The rooms are large enough for several people to get dressed in at once. The bathrooms are also very big. The Loews is right across the street from Harrah's New Orleans Casino and just blocks from the French Quarter and Burbon Street. Be prepared to pay for parking- it is around $30 a night. (Most hotels in this area require you to pay for valet parking). Other than that, excellent stay.
