“Wow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I have stayed in a ton of hotels in New Orleans, and Harrah's was one of the best I have stayed in. Great service, big rooms, great toiletries and towels, luxurious bathrooms and amenities, safe, fridge, flat screen TV (no lag on the remote) and the fastest elevators I have ever seen!! Great proximity to restaurants, shopping and the quarter. Only problem I had was the softness of the bed and pillows, water pressure and the cost of parking and the rules behind gambling and parking. Other then that, I would totally stay here again in a moments notice!

Well, my check in at Harrah's was just sad, the check in clerks were not very friendly! We were there for a major event, 4 nights...$600+ a night and we check into our first room...there were stains visible on the chairs and bed! The furniture was old and chipped. We asked for another room. The second didn't have stains, and the room was no better than the first one. Very disappointed! We looked at the upgraded suite and there was only one bed in the suites and we requested two! Couldn't book another hotel last minute! With the rates Harrah's charge during certain events they should at least give us a little more to enjoy room wise!

We took a quick trip to New Orleans Thanksgiving night on a comp offer from Harrahs. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The location is convenient to Harrahs as well as numerous restaurants and attractions. I gave the hotel 4 stars instead of 5 only because the rates when paying for a room are usually very high and if you are paying to stay in New Orleans there are better values. However if you get a good rate at this hotel it is a great place to stay!

My hubby and I loved our stay at Harrah's. We never seemed to run into others in the hall; it seemed very private compared to other places in Vegas. Our room was huge, the bed so comfy, and the bathroom was even larger. We had a huge bathtub, a large glassed in shower, and the toilet was in its own room. The huge tiled floor was so clean and nice. I was extremely impressed. We will be back. We loved especially that we could park the car, gamble some, and walk all over the French Quarter. We did a Stray Boots tour which showed us all of the sites on our own pace. What a great get away from our kids!

From check-in to check-out the service is excellent, the rooms well appointed, the location perfect for exploring the french quarter and down town; underground walk to the casino; lots of great restaurants within and nearby; just lovely.

We were 6 women traveling together for Halloween and couldn't have picked a better hotel. Great location, good food within walking distance and the casino was nice. This hotel is just several blocks to the quarter. The customer service was outstanding, the desk workers couldn't have been nicer, they even took the time to split the 3 rooms 6 ways for payment. We did have some issues with the housekeeping staff, missing towels, coffee and rooms not cleaned and a missing scarf. The parking is a bit expensive but if you gamble for a half hour per 24 hours it's free. Too bad about the housekeeping problems.

This is definitely my new "happy place". Located just a few blocks from the French Quarter and the Superdome, Harrah's New Orleans Casino Hotel rises 26 stories, tastefully overlooking the great Mississippi River. With 450 gorgeous rooms and suites, there is a space just calling your name. I know it was calling mine.

This is a hotel that you can really "settle into". Whether you are visiting for a long weekend or for an extended vacation, this reall feels like "home"... only a lot more luxurious! The pillowtop mattresses are probably among the most comfortable in the industry, and the bathrooms, complete with oversized tubs, contain every amenity imaginable.

And you might as well make a date with Lady Luck and venture into the casino. I mean, this place is great. This is definitely one of my favorite casinos, Vegas included. The ambiance is nothing short of inspiring, and every gaming option imaginable is there waiting… hopefully to give you money.

For those of you lucky enough to have earned a Diamond or Seven Star status with the lucrative Total Rewards player's program, you will also have special access to the Palms Room, a beautiful lounge boasting tasty bites and a full service bar. It is perfect for a quick treat before playing, or even for a meal... and it is all complimentary for Harrah's most rewarded players.

And Harrah’s is not all about gambling. The dining options are a reason to visit alone. I love Fuddruckers! This is by far the best burger in the world and, teamed with a heaping order of their famous fries, will satisfy even the biggest appetite.
