I've stayed at this location several times and I've never been disappointed. I will stay here again the next time I am attending an event in this area.

The people who served our breakfast and were cleaning the halls and rooms were the most bright, cheery and positive in attitude. It was a pleasure to interact with each of them. The higher level public contact personnel there could learn from these hard workers.

I stayed at the Metairie facility in January. Upon arriving in the room it was obvious that the air conditioner was not working properly.
I notified the front desk and I asked to be moved. The representative said that they would send up someone to look at the problem, which they did. This not my preference but I had no choice.
The technician came up and worked on the unit for about 30 minutes. After he was done he said that it would take some time for the room to cool off. After about 2 hours the room was actually getting warmer.
I called the front desk again to report the ongoing issue and they then offered to move us. My wife and I had already completely unpacked and were ready for bed, which I told to the representative so I was not about to move.
We decided to tough it out for the night. For our inconvenience the representative said they would give me extra points on my rewards account. I thought that I would receive a decent amount of points.
Once I arrived back home I checked my account and saw that I was given 1,000 points. This was basically an insult.
I then called the hotel directly and spoke to the front desk and explained that I was not pleased with their resolution to the problem.
Then they offered to refund my stay for the night. I appreciate getting credit for the stay but the fact of the matter is it should have never gotten to this.
I was not looking for a free night, especially one where we were miserable in the room without any air conditioning.
If they would have moved me as I first requested this issue would have never arose.
It's like they are using their customers to weed out hotel deficiencies, which you should not do.
Someone should have verified that the air conditioning in the room was in working order prior to letting someone stay in it.
I was a loyal Holiday Inn customer up to this point and based on the response from the staff during this issue it'll be difficult for me to stay there again.
Yes, they made it right financially but I believe that if I would have accepted their 1,000 points as compensation and said no more then they would have not offered to credit my stay......which is what I suppose many guests
do. They only offered the credit as a last resort.
