The hotel was adequate rooms were spacious and clean for our group of 6 girlfriends 35+ in age - we had a two bedroom suite, the kitchen was convenient for beverages and warming up leftover (doggiebags) etc. - there was a small balcony off the king bedroom but no view - the side of a buiding and the parking lot was the view...location was close to the Superdome which was our purpose...I frequent Homewood Suites typically with my children - I found this Homewood Suite to be the worst of all I've stayed - decor, service and all. We found it insulting that this establishment required all guest to wear florescent green wrist bands for our entire stay - and if not worn during the breakfast hours, you were denied service - even if you had your room key. WOW. The front desk staff lacked any knowledge of the area, dinning, entertainment etc. The Essence Music Festival is a major event in the town of New Orleans, you'd think this hotel would have been prepared - particularly since they were sold out that weekend (July 3rd - 6th)...This hotel made my group feel less than welcomed and rather restrictive. AND to our shock...while walking down the streets of N.O. someone recognized our florescent bands and identified what hotel we were staying at - WHAT A SAFTY HAZARD for a group of women traveling the streets of N.O. This hotel must find another way to identify it's patrons without the use of such tactics. Shame on Homewood Suites N.O. - and yes, it is time for an upgrade. This hotel just does not make you feel special. Next year for the E.M.F. we will choose differently...
