Harrah's NO is CHINTZY!

Everywhere about this hotel speaks MONEY($$$$) COMING IN TO Harrah's but nothing going out for CUSTOMER COMFORT! Where is the fresh fruit or lollipos(candy) in th lobby? Why are sheets not changed daily or at least every other day? The shower was draining ever so slowly until I was standing in 6 inch water before I was finished showering! I called room service and attendant came and FIXED the problem. Next day same problem so I just decided to spend the rest of my showers standing in 6 inch water not draining properly. This operation makes TOO MUCH CASINO $$$$ to run an operation this CHINTZY A FASHION!!! Bobby Jones

New Orleans get away

the staff was amazing. The hotel is conveniently located about 2 blocks away from the beginning of the French Quarter. When we got to our room and unpacked, I realized there was a condom wrapper next to the bed on the floor.....ewww.....don't get me wrong, I know what happens in hotel rooms. It just made me uneasy because it was very clear to see on the floor. I brought it up to the front desk when we went downstairs, and they apologised but made no offer to switch rooms or rectify the situation in any way. the bathroom floor had been swept but not washed in a while. and there are no amenities to speak of in the hotel other than a chain steakhouse. No spas, salons, pool or hot tub :( beautiful hotel, great people working there.

Excellent hotel - average casino

As Hotel's go it was pretty good and roomy. My only complaints were that the casino staff was unattentive and I never received a drink I ordered and the dealers had no way of requesting drink service.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

If I could place no stars I would; however, I gave them the lowest rating. First, the staff members at the hotel stole $2,500 from the safe in my suite. Even though a maintenance guy entered my room for no reason, they would not reimburse me. Then, some one placed my account on collections, and no one knows why. I affected my credit and I had to pay a collection agency. Then, I called them to find out and they played dumb. So in essence, they stole from me twice. I am a Seven Star Members and I will NEVER stay at this dump again. DO NOT STAY IN THIS PLACE!!!

Vacation

Overall, the room was very good. Twice we had to request face cloths . I requested wi-fi the first day but the staff did not explain about the code written on the card that holds the key so therefore I was not able to get access until I finally asked about it on the third day. It would have helped if if the check in people would have explained this. I did receive access on the third day when I inquired about it.

Our stay in New Oreleans

The hotel let us check in early (before designated check in time) at no extra cost. Very nice rooms and comfy beds. Our room didn't have a very good view but we weren't facing the river. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice getaway

The hotel was clean. The staff warm and friendly. We were out late one night and tried to get into the hotel at an entrance with a long line. The worker was checking people's ID's. so we tried to ever they another door and tried to show our room key as proof we were guest and not party goers. The sec guard a gentleman in a yellow jkt. Denied us entry and was very nasty. My companion and I are both over 40. Had a room key and just wanted to get to out room. After a full day of sight seeing. We had to exit walk all the way to another entrance with no line. My only complaint. But I felt that was serious enough to complain.

Wonderful!

The convenience of Harrah's is great. Located a short walk to Bourbon Street, it was a great convenience, and afforded us an opportunity to walk some of the rich, wonderful food we ate. Also it gave us a chance to wander around and meet the locals. The hotel staff were helpful and couldn't do enough for you. I would definitely return to Harrah's. Pillows are comfy too.
