“Very nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Harrah's in New Orleans is unquestionably one of the nicer hotels in the area. The staff is very friendly and helpful, grounds are immaculate, and it is in a convenient location to other attractions. The rooms were spacious and very clean. They are soundproofed nicely and the housekeeping staff was undetected. The casino is larger than you probably think and there is a cool bar called Masquerade that is a must-see. The buffet was nothing too special and the selection was limited. The seafood place (Acme) in the casino is quite delicious. If you are in the mood for true authentic food, take the 2 block walk to Mother's which usually has a line out the door.

Overall, a great stay and value and I wouldn't hesistate to come back.

We had stayed at Harrah's for 3 days before our cruise. I had a coupon for 2 nights plus free food and slot play. They had comped me for the last night to my surprise. The room that we had was a 2 queen bed set up. They had placed us on a higher floor with a view of the river . I could see the cruise ship come in early on the day we departed.

The room was very big compared to other rooms we stayed at in NOLA. The house keeping staff had the room spotless. The bell captan had recommended a seafood restaurant around the corner called Dragos...Probably one of my favorite seafood places in NOLA. Great place to have Charbroiled Oysters...Need to go with the Dozen...plus Maine Lobster was out of the would!

Transportation was just a short block to catch the rail car $3.00 for a 24 hour pass.. Bourbon street was a 4 minute ride on the rail car or 10 minute walk.

A BIG THANK-YOU TO ALL THE STAFF AT HARRAH'S

If you're a Harrahs player, you'll get a better deal on the rooms and you can use reward points to pay for rooms and meals. Upper rooms on river side have great panoramic views. Staff is outstanding - we so enjoyed talking with Leslie Baptiste,greeter extraordinaire and the doormen always went out of their way. Rooms are modern and large,nicely appointed and quiet. Great location close to Qtr and Convention center.

Room Tip: the higher the better if you like a good view.

I will start off by saying Harrah's provided the two nights I stayed for free, but my review is based as if I had paid for the room. The hotel is immaculately clean. The rooms are extremely nice in size and very modern. The bathroom is the best feature. Huge garden tub with separate shower. Plenty of light and space. My only complaint about my room was that there was no desk. For the size of the room, a desk would have been nice since I had to work on my laptop and table was too small and chairs were not proper size to reach laptop keyboard comfortable. My other complaint was the internet service. I had to pay for the internet service, but It kept shutting down and I needed to enter the password frequently. The bed was ultra comfortable. And location is nice.

I found the hotel to be clean, plush and the staff very helpful! The casino and restaurants were perfect....not crowded and extremely friendly! Great place to visit just be careful leaving the place at night.....as in most of the NOLA, some of the surrounding areas appears to be dangerous!

We had reserved a king bed non-smoking room got exactly that. The room had a wonderful view of the river. The price was reasonable since were gamblers, The staff was well triained and friendly.The housekeeping staff excellent. The welcomer Leslie made you feel at home and attentive to all around.Walking distance to most things and very comfortable area. My only complaint would be the pepsi machine three bucks alittle pricey, Stayed at many harrahs this is surely the best staff.The doormen were extremely informative with restaurants and directions even though we had no car. Would stay there again without hesitation.

Room Tip: high view river side

Room was large-didn't feel caged in. The bathroom was very large with separate tub/ shower and the toilet is off in its own area.
Hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming.
The casino was a short walk under tunnel from hotel or you could cross the street.
Close to/ walking distance to the French Quarter.

Room Tip: Suggest that room is away from elevator
