The hotel I usually reserve for my trips to New Orleans, the Marriott Lakeway, was booked solid so I was forced to pick elsewhere. There weren't many choices due to all the oil spill clean-up teams in town. I ended up choosing this Holiday Inn Express because it was only 2 miles away from the location of the wedding I was in town for and it's right off of I-10, plus the tripadvisor reviews were mostly good. I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn in over 10 years and my last experience wasn't very pleasant, so I was very reluctant to book a room. Upon check-in I was pleasantly surprised; the lobby was clean and nicely decorated, check-in was quick and the staffers were helpful and polite. My room was clean and had a mini refrigerator and microwave. The bathtub drain was slow, but that was a minor annoyance. A full breakfast was included; the dinning area was kept clean and the food was hot and fresh. There is nothing fancy about this hotel, but it is relatively new (post Katrina) and clean. I would recommended it and I'd stay again.
