We just stayed one night at Harrah's, booked through harrahs.com. Hotel was very impressive, not vanilla like Vegas' Harrah's property. It was like Rio or Paris LV properties, for comparison. They let us check in early, no problem. As other reviewers note, rooms are spacious with big foyer area, large bathroom with private toilet. Big jacuzzi tub and big shower. Nice Gilchrist & Soames toiletries like other high-end Harrah's properties. Hotel is very new so everything sleek, clean. Used fitness center, which had nice equipment and towels ready for you on the machines. Our room had a great view of the bend in the river looking toward the French Quarter. Great location, walked everywhere in French Quarter and close to CBD attractions also. Ate at the buffet's Sunday jazz champagne brunch, which I would definitely recommend.

This is a very nice hotel. The staff were very friendly and approachable. The room was lovely and spacious. The bed was so comfortable, pillows great, linens noticeably of quality, and the comforter just the right weight. The bathroom is huge, and I loved the strength of the shower!
The hotel is located one block from Canal Street. It was a great location, especially if you like to venture out of French Quarter. We walked to Cafe du Monde every morning by taking the riverwalk, probably about 1/2 mile. So we got our share of the French Quarter experience.
We also walked the other way to go to WWII museum, formerly DDay Museum. Another easy pleasant walk. We caught the St Charles trolley 3 blocks away and went and saw the Garden district.
I recommend this hotel. Great location and great rooms. .

This hotel is very nice. The room was nice, bathroom was huge. Bed reading lights were weird; didn't realize where they were until morning. Getting from the parking garage to the hotel part was a hike and kind of annoying, but it was a nice place.

A complimentary junket from the casino took me to this property. It is beautiful from the pillow top mattresses to the cozy robes. The marble bathroom is spectacular and the tub big enough for a family reunion.
It is one of the few hotels where there seems to be more than enough employees to answer every need. The casino is across the street from the hotel and there is a person there to hand the guest an umbrella if needed.
Room service was prompt and the food good in huge servings. I thought the prices a little high, but I used casino comp points so I really didn't care.

This was our first stay at the Harrah's hotel in New Orleans.

Our room had a great view of the bridge and city.

The service at this property is outstanding - the employees here are friendly and helpful.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful from the lobby to the bathrooms. Large deep soaking tub, separate shower - I loved that after a late night (early morning) return to the room.

The location is great as it is only a walk across the street to the casino, a block from the Mississippi and a few blocks to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter.

We loved our stay here and will stay here when we return.

We planned a quick trip to New Orleans for a long weekend, getting in on a Wednesday night, planning to stay until Sunday. After confirming our reservation with Travelocity, uniTED, and Harrahs before departing (I've read reviews, thought it wise), we arrived at 11:30 expecting to check in our room, only to be told that our room wasn't available and that they would 'walk us down the street' and pay for a room on them.

The hotel was adequate, but not what we wanted, we were embarrassed to be turned away after paying more than a fair price. Travelocity wasn't much help either, we got no credit for being put out like this, we had to wait until 3:00 the next day to check in, effectively gutting our planned day taking in the sights and scene that is New Orleans, and putting a real damper on our vacation. It was only 2 1/2 days more and we really had to hustle.

The customer service center for Travelocity is based in India, they were ineffective and the response we had from them was frustrating and close to useless. I will never use an on-line travel agent, instead I will eat the few dollars more, book directly on my own, use reputable hotel chains and hope for the best.

This was our second stay at the Harrah's hotel in New Orleans. The service at this property is second to none - the employees here must all REALLY enjoy thier jobs as they are the most friendly and helpful bunch of folks in New Orleans.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful from the lobby to the bathrooms. The location is great as it is only a walk across the street to the casino, a block from the Mississippi and a few blocks to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter.

Definitely try the bufffet at the casino - we are not buffet people, but this one is GREAT !!! Also Gordon Biersch restaurant next to the hotel is well worth a try.

Most of all - please come and visit New Orleans - the city looks great and we felt safe everywhere we went.
