“Ochsner Clinic Hotel”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Recently renovated rooms are surprisingly nice. We stayed on the ground floor rooms 151 and 153. High ceilings added to the overall positive experience. New furnishings and remodeled bathroom small but adequate. Bed average, Two chairs plus desk with chair and free WiFi. The hotel is attached to the clinic and hospital so very convenient. Very good price ($139 for king). Very good front desk service. No bar. No place close to walk to.

Room Tip: Rooms with view of atrium are very quiet.

Travelling solo for an extended business stay into the weekend, I sought a bargain rate for one night’s nice lodging, since the downtown hotels were hiking up their rates to extortion level. Brent House gave me a large room when I checked in, which contained a kitchenette for $114 plus tax.

Positives: quiet, clean, helpful staff, nice room for the money. Easy access to the hospital public areas including two atria, coffee bar, cafeteria (limited hours), and a large outdoor pool w/ whirlpool. Guest room had a Jacuzzi bathtub, three chairs, good bed, and lots of daylight.

Negatives: can be a long haul to the parking, an institutional feel, no bar or restaurant right on the premises, poor television quality, lighting issues (garish overhead, and none at the desk). No views of any interest (Roads, interior 1970’s atrium). A view of the pool on the east side might be best option. It was very hard to find the entrance due to construction and disconnected roads across the face of the giant complex. While next to the river, you can’t see it due to the levee bank.

I’d rate it somewhere between 2 and 3 stars. If you needed to spend a lot of time seeing someone at the hospital, it’d be terrifically convenient. If you are bushed after a long week and see it as a place to regroup, it worked for me. But for seeing the City, I cannot recommend it unless you are really on a tight budget. There are many hotels closer in which are far more convenient and offer more.

Lastly, it felt a little strange to walk the halls of the public spaces and be IN a HOSPITAL. Not that it’s bad,--- it’s just different. Also, as an architect, I was not bowled over by all the really dated interior design, much from the 70-80’s.

One final compliment: after two hours of trying to cool off my room I went down to the front desk about 8pm and asked if they could do something. They immediately dispatched their maintenance man who came to the room and “jiggled” the thermostat, or actually toggled some quirk in the system to restore the cooling . It immediately brought relief. Very responsive!

Room Tip: View of the pool, and close to the elevator.

Our family enjoyed the relaxing enviornment and the super nice staff members. At a time we really needed to relax. Free covered parking was great. Only took us 10 minutes to get to the Super Dome and about 15 minutes to the airport. To our surprise the Mississippi River is right behind the hotel. Wow, what a site! The Gym came in handy as well. Thanks again!

This facility is shabby and lacking in hotel services. Yes, it is attached to a hospital and surely serves a good purpose for families of patients, etc. but if it wants to be termed a hotel it should behave as one. Soaps, towels, etc. were lacking and there is no coffee maker in the room. The downstairs restaurant is typical dull hospital food and expensive for what it is. The location is not very convenient if visitors want to see the typical New Orleans sights and attractions, you will need a car. One benefit is the availability of parking which is an expensive add-on in many NOLA hotels.
