“Very nice hotel with friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Harrah's hotel is very nicely appointed with nice rooms including really nice bath facilities - very roomy with both tub and shower. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Easy access to casino and convenient parking (free if you play machines 30 minutes / day with a TR card). Will definitely stay there again.

My stay at this hotel was comped and I didn't expect much but got a surprise. The rooms and bathrooms (with separate tub and shower) are very nice. It is clean and well decorated. Best of all, everyone (EVERYONE) who works there is extremely friendly and helpful. It is located near (in?) the French Quarter near many of the usual tourist sights, the mall on the river, and trolley stops. Definitely would stay here again.

Nice view. Soft bed. Jayme at front desk was great, as well as Marvin the court jester in the hotel lobby. Next to river walk where you get on the Natchez river boat for nice riverboat ride. Definitely get the lunch too.

We took a long weekend trip with 3 other couples and stayed at Harrahs. The hotel and staff were great. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. The proximity to attractions and transit was great. The casino was a lot of fun and the staff there was really good too. Overall a good choice for NOLA travel. We will be back!

We stayed at Harrah's in NOLA for 4 days- perfect amount of time. We chose Harrah's b/c we frequently stay at the one in AC and used our reward points.We also researched hotels in the area and this one was perfect. It wasn't in the french quarter, but only a 15 min walk.

The rooms were very clean, staff very friendly, housekeeping great. I recommend this hotel if you don't want to be around the loud bars and smell of boubon street, but still within walking distance to great food, tours, and shopping. If you want coffee in the AM go to PJ's coffee house next to the doubletree hotel. The hotel also has a nice buffet breakfast.

The Riverwalk mall, Aquarium, and Warehouse District including "mother's" restaurant are steps away from Harrah's. Do eat at The Crazy Lobster, Cafe du monde - for cafe au lait and beignets (small cafe located in riverwalk mall which doesn't have a long line), and Gordon Biersch (great beer). The St. Charles and riverwalk streetcars are also located within a few blocks away. Def go on the St. Charles line to see the mansions (incredible!).

Some things to do include: Emeril's NOLA, walk up to the french market, venture to the french quarter, get a drink at The Carousal Bar in Hotel Monteleone, eat a beignet at both Cafe Beignet and Cafe du Monde.
There really is a lot to do and I cannot even summarize it in this review. Visit NOLA!!! They need tourists :)

We stayed at Harrahs on March 26th and had a great time. The hotel staff was very friendly, offered to assist us with any questions we had and made us feel very welcome. Our room was spacious especially the bathrooms and also very quiet. The location is excellent for walking along the river, catching a streetcar( when they showed up) or walking to the shops along Decatur street. Harrahs you have a return visitor
