The property itself was very nice Our only complaint was the restaurant. Service was extremely slow and staff not very friendly.

The front desk staff were really nice and helpful. The ladies at the restaurant Ms.D, Brittany, and Rhonda were so accommodating and took care of us. The room was nice nd clean. We would definitely come back.

Stay one night. Staff were nice, but room was not ready when we arrived. We had to leave our luggage in storage because we didn’t have a car and had to come back later that night to officially checkin. It was a decent stay but not worth $307 for 1 night.

First, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We liked the easy going atmosphere here, no pretentiousness. The rooms are around a circular tower so you can get to your room quickly from the elevator if you forgot anything. The bed was really comfortable, and there is a refrigerator for your drinks. The room had a regular-sized hairdryer not a compact so you can dry your hair quickly. The pool and fitness center conveniently located near the lobby - no searching for the entrances. There is also a guest computer station with a printer near the entrance so you can print out your tour vouchers, boarding passes etc. The restaurant, right off the lobby, offers a nice buffet each morning for $10.95 that includes coffee or juice. The only downside was that the room toilet and bath have a door so that the vanity is separate. This door opens in so that it can be tricky to get into the bathroom and then shut the door. It’s just tight. I do not know if all the rooms are situated like this. We had a room with a king bed and a pull out sofa. Location-wise, this hotel is easy to get to over the beautiful Mississippi River bridge, the expressway exit takes you right to it! It’s a short driving distance from a few Walmart stores and various fast food. Usually about a 10-20 minute drive into the sites. You can get an UBER to Bourbon St. for about $10. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

Staff was very friendly and helpful!! Our stay was very enjoyable!!

Only hotel which do not provide complimentary water everyday. The toilet paper holder & towel rack would fall always. The toilet bowl would suddenly fill water in the middle of the night, dont know why this happens. Won’t be staying in this hotel again.

Clean and convenient. The restaurant was great for breakfast. Nice buffet.

Great price and nice hotel. Nice location and very clean room but the noise from outside was so loud since its next to highway. Im a light sleeper so i didn't get much sleep. Everything else was nice.

Very nice hotel. staff is really good. awesome location

Was a bit disappointed in overall condition of rooms.

Very convenient location to superdome. The Mall and restaurants are right across the street. Room very clean

Bartender and food was great at hotel bar! Classy lady that knew her drinks and was not afraid to make excellent recommendations.

The hotel was nice, clean and staff was good. The bed was comfortable. The only problem I had was that the restaurant on the first floor is horrible. They have bad service and drinks are bad. I wouldn’t recommend.

Restaurant had a lot to be desired The mattress definitely need to replacing

Reservations were easy, staff very friendly and accommodating. From the moment you walk in the front door you can smell the clean. The rooms were just as clean. The rooms were spacious with the exception of the bathroom. The vanity area was big but when you shut the door to the toilet it is tight and there is no ventilation but the shower is spacious. I did have a conversation with a couple in the evlavator that complained of the traffic noise, my room was on the back side so I didn't experience that but thought it is a need to know for future guests. Take the Ferry ($2) across the river. It will be a lot of walking but you will safe time and money in finding parking and it just takes a few minutes.

My husband wanted to stay downtown . I'm from the New Orleans west bank and convinced him to try the Holiday Inn I always drove by when growing up. He was won over and we'll stay @ Holiday Inn Westbank again.

We stayed on 2nd floor facing the highway. But room was very clean. Hotell staff was very pleasant. B the pool want very big. But no one really use it much. Overall no complaints.

Arrived to check in @~4-5pm Thursday, June 22nd The lady at the front desk (sorry I forgot her name) was very nice & friendly. She welcomed us to the hotel & to New Orleans! Gave us a run down on what's in & around the hotel, gave us brochures re hot spots & various tours in town! The hotel is in Gretna but only takes 6-10 mins (depending on traffic) to get to the Convention Center in New Orleans! Will recommend this hotel to family & friends!!!
