“Park and Cruise Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

We found the hotel to be a very good value. The public areas were in good repair, and appeared to be well-maintained. We found our room to also be in good repair, and well-appointed. The free Wi-Fi worked well. The pool was open, but we choose not to use it. The breakfast was plentiful, with a wide selection of items. The free shuttle to the cruise-port was very convienient. Only thing that would be more convienient, would be if they would offer a return shuttle from the cruise-port.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to see that your experience with us was stellar. I am pleased that you had utilized our shuttle service to the cruise port. Per New Orleans Habor Patrol, our shuttle service can only drop off at the port. It is our hope that one day we will be able to pick up as well. Should you have an occasion to return, please do not hesitate to contact us directly. Thank you for visiting with us!

Unfortunately, I was not a huge fan of this hotel. If you need to save money and be on a budget, it's fine. It would be best in summer because it has a nice courtyard and outdoor pool area. Which is the view of most rooms. We had a king, in a dark corner with an alley view of rusty old semi-trucks delivering plants.
They did a nice hot breakfast. But the rooms are not as nice as he suite pictured on their site. The hotel is located under a raised busy road. Which is hard to navigate. But still close to the French quarter by car. If you want a fabulous trip to remember stay at a fancier hotel with more than 3 floor which has an actual view!

Thank you for your review. We apologize that your experience was hampered based on the view from your guest room. Our hotel has 3 floors which some of our room boast views based on room location. Our hotel is located on a business road right off the interstate which allows guest to get to and from the hotel quickly. Should you have an occasion to return, please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a wonderful New Year!

I travel for business every week and for the last 6 months have stayed in NOLA almost every week. Unless I know of an excellent locally recomended hotel, I only stay at the major chains of Hilton, Holiday Inn and Mariott and have status with each. The Ramada Metairie was locally recomended and is by far the best overall value of any hotel in Metairie or South Louisiana. The rooms are updated and appointed nicely and there always seems to be continuous improvement projects at the entire facility. The staff is always welcoming and always accomodating for my many needs. The location is perfectly between the airport and downtown, I always feel safe, it is very quiet and there is easy access to a whole foods and many restaurants. I fly private and commercial. They always come get me when I call and drop me off at the main terminal or FBO when I leave. I will be staying here week in and week out for many months to come. From an honorary local, this is the place to stay in S. Louisiana. Thank you to the Ramada Metairie Team for making my stays more enjoyable.
