We stayed here over New Years Eve weekend to leave out on a cruise. The hotel offers a free shuttle to and from the airport, and also offers a park and cruise rate where f you stay with them, you can leave your car for the week while you are on a cruise. That rate also includes a shuttle to and from the cruise ship terminal.
The hotel IS right on the highway, and in our room facing the highway, we did hear some road noise, though it was not enough to keep us from sleeping. Be aware that because the hotel is in Metaire, you may have some problems finding a cab willing to take you back to the hotel from downtown. Several divers did not want to leave the area near downtown for their fares. It was a minor inconvenience, but one you should be aware of.
One downside, and I think it was just a timing issue with the holiday, the cruise leaving, and a football game on the same day, it did not seem as if they had enough staff at the breakfast service to keep enough hot food out for all of the guests.
Staff was polite and knowledgeable about the local area. The price was right, and the room was clean. If I was coming into New Orleans again for a night or two, I'd stay here again without a thought.
