Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gbw331 Close to Downtown N.O.
This is an excellent alternative to staying in a pricy hotel near the convention center or the French Quarter. Just 10 minutes from either over the bridge. And speaking of the bridge, the rooms in this hotel that face the bridge have excellent views. Half the price and the room is the equal or better than any of the close-in hotels. Only downer is that the breakfast buffet isn't that good - you can probably do better going out somewhere. Staff were extremely efficient and helpful. Parking is ample (and free, though if you are going downtown you will have to pay when you get there.)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveller52525 Waiting for Receipt
The hotel was OK for this part of New Orleans. I wouldn't usually choose to stay in this area, but I was there on business. At checkout I requested a receipt (as I need one to claim back my business expenses), but was told that they cannot print one out, so this will be emailed to me. I never got the receipt, even after phoning to request it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NOLAEd Surprised by how nice it was.
My wife and I were very pleased with the hotel since it became a Holiday Inn. The lobby and room were very nice and comfortable. The elevator speed was so fast it was almost as though the car were waiting at our floor every time. The coffee was very good. The staff including security were friendly and helpful.
It was a short stay so I did not have the opportunity to take advantage of many of the amenities available.

Wanting to be close to New Orleans but still be able to relax we opted for the Holiday Inn Gretna. We were greeted by Theresa who was VERY WARM and made us comfortable before we even made it to our rooms. Although the rooms were a bit dated and not totally clean Theresa ad her staff made sure the issues were rectified promptly. The food at the bar were also TOP NOTCH the bartender Teresa took care of us throughout our entire stay! Her warmth and great memory makes her a GREAT asset to the brand!

The Holiday Inn on the west bank is always an enjoyable stay. The rooms are large and comfortable, and there is a nice sports bar and grill in the hotel. Great place to catch a sporting event.

Found nothing that stood out about this hotel that would warrant a recommendation or a return stay. Staff seemed complacent and the room was only moderately clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mido1507 Pleasant stay
Our reservation was not updated as we had spoken to a front desk person on the phone to add a night to our reservation. However, it was corrected at check in. Rooms were nice and comfortable, except for the restrooms. Very cramped and restroom door just cleared the toilet upon entering or exiting. Sheets were also not changed in 3 days. A little disappointed that my daughter left her necklace in the room, after check out, I called and spoke to Lashonda and explained that we left a necklace behind. She stated she could not help me and transferred me to a housekeeping voicemail. I left a message. After not receiving a call back, I called again, the voicemail was now full. I called back and spoke to Teresa, who informed me that housekeeping would not have listened to any voicemails until Monday. She took my phone number and stated she would contact housekeeping immediately. Again, hours passed, I never received a phone call so I called again. Teresa answered again and just said housekeeping didn't find anything. Very disappointed when we clearly left it in the room accidentally.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Barry83 Good value but kind of cramped for two people
This is a good hotel with nice people. I wish the room with the shower and toilet was larger, but you're stuck with that. Maid service is good, and the place is clean. Great internet and office services.
Major improvements could be made to the restaurant:
1. It's understaffed. The waits are too long.
2. Food is not great. Menu quite limited. Hard to compete in New Orleans that has lots of good restaurants.
3. A niche you might want to fill is to offer organic food with a good chef.

We used your hotel four to five times a year when my son's had a BMX race at Gretna. The boys use to beg to stay at your hotel, this last time not only did your Director of Human Resources "freak out" on a very UNPROFESSIONAL way but she also was extremely rude tome when checking out. She let me know that my bikes and all the other bmx families bikes where not allowed to be in the room and they had to stay in the cars. I asked her if she was going to be responsible for the bikes on the cars and she told me no and that the where just bikes. I explained to her that just the forks of one of my sons bikes was equal price to three walmart bikes. I explained I have a little of over 4000.00 wrapped up in my boy's bikes and she told me I was fibbing. She yelled in un professional ways to the point that the front desk young lady would not even look at me. there is about fifteen BMX families that use to stay with us when there is a big race in Gretna but because of the experience of her WE have all decided to stay at the Harvey Holiday inn. I have never been treated so poorly by a person in a Holiday Inn hotel before. Usually Holiday inn is the ONLY place I stay. I canceled my reservation at the time for the Sept. state race, we are now booked in Harvey.

I haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn in some time, but we saw it on the way to our original property. When there were problems with our original reservation, we were relieved that this hotel was able not only to take us, but to also exceed all expectations.
The rooms were spacious, clean, and appropriate for my mother who has mobility issues. The pool was restful and clean to my niece's delight. For me, the price was right, the check-in process was painless, breakfast was tasty, and I was able to access a computer to coordinate our visit to the near-by French Quarter. We were all thrilled! This property is now on our preferred list for our next trip to the Big Easy. With this hotel as an option, that visit may come sooner than first thought.

We found this property to be surprisingly a joy...The hotel is circular which makes it stand out and easy to find. You can see it from the Mississippi River bridge. The staff was awesome in every way. We had a double queen room which was very spacious...it was like having a suite without the suite...The only thing we thought needed improvement was the bathroom set up...there was no door to the vanity area but a door separated the toilet and bathtub/shower which made this area very tiny...you had to go in the room and turn to close the door...it would have been better if the door was a slider and for them to include some kind of privacy divider for the vanity area where you would have the option to leave that door open if you like by shutting the vanity area from the rest of the room. Though the property had a couple of mechanical issues, the staff's response to those issues was phenomenal. Both dryers malfunctioned on day two of our stay...the hotel volunteered to dry our clothes for FREE as a compensation. Both were back functional the very next day...however, the staff still offered to launder our clothes complimentary and hand deliver to the room upon completion!! That was BEYOND excellent customer service. Anything we needed, it was resolved expeditiously. I know where I will stay for future New Orleans trips!!

Hotel was kind of hard to get to (for an out-of-towner), but once we arrived, we were rewarded with comfortable and clean rooms. Disappointed that the pool's shallow end was 4 feet; don't consider this kid friendly. Staff was excellent. Wasn't used to having breakfast in a bar and grill, but buffet was good. I would recommend this hotel; the grandkids enjoyed it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Vista Comfortable bed, bathroom and maidservice below average
Main room was comfortable and clean as per usual. The bathroom was clean but the shower rod was loose
and hanging down. Lack of a vanity even a small one with the
water pipes exposed really was not very inviting.The night staff
associate was very nice and helpful. We had made a reservation
earlier but there was no record. There were no toiletries in the
room (shampoo, soap, lotion. This will in no way deter us from
staying at the tower in the future.

Great stay once again. It's so cool when they staff recognizes you and your family from previous visits. We got treated like we had been there all the while. We were super thrilled that when we booked online our "additional request" was not ignored and everything we asked for was in place when we arrived. Will always be our first choice when visiting the area.

The service at this Holiday Inn was great! We had never visited New Orleans before this trip and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome to the city and offered many suggestions for things to do and places to go see around town. My family had a great stay in New Orleans and we can’t wait for our second visit.

Great staff and comfortable rooms. Try to request a room facing away from the expressway that literally runs 50 yards away 24/7 so it can be quite noisy. Overall it's a great place to stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fredIII Ok Room
This was an ok place to stay.. room really isn't that big.. and it is right next to a highway.. overlooking it actually... So when loud cars go by at 2am, you know it..
We did have a big problem-We took a cab from there to downtown New Orleans, and could not get a way back... No cabs wanted to run to Gretna-This hotel is in Gretna, not New Orleans.. Took us and hour and a half in the rain, to get a cab to take us back...
the room really wasn't that clean when we got there, the bedspread was stained, there was change(coins) along the bed frame, and the remote was missing a battery, which we later found under the bed.. You would think housekeeping would know if the remote was missing a battery....
