Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mc321 Unclean and unpleasant
This was my first stay at this particular HI Express. I don't plan on staying here again until I have it on authority that that things have improved in big ways. I have been staying at Holiday Inn Express for several years now and every week to two weeks within the past year. I was very disappointed in the lack of customer service and most of all the lack of cleanliness in my room. The staff was not overly friendly as I have expected them to be from past experience. Additionally a King non-smoking was what was reserved and I ended up with two double beds. These are things I can overlook and understand. What I have I hard time overlooking is uncleanliness in my room. The bathroom was disgusting; I have pictures to prove it and will send them upon request.
Another unfortunate detail is that this hotel is so conveniently located near the airport and staying there would be great for me if it weren't for all the negative attributes. HI Express is great for business travelers and I hope for your sake and mine that this does not become the norm.

walking in the hotel i was immediately uncomfortable because of the of the temperature in the hotel it was FREEZING it had to be 62 or lower very unnecessary to be that cold in there.The night clerks at the desk were not very friendly. The room was nice but I could hear the people in the next rooms conversation very clearly. My overall stay was good but I would have appreciated friendlier night clerks at the desk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Janiebug Great location near airport & great value!
Great location near airport. It is not noisy at all. The hotel is very clean & comfortable! The decor is new & crisp! The free wifi is great. Loved the free breakfast too. The Delicious cinnamon rolls are to die for! Will stay here again just to get the cinnamon rolls! There is also Voo Doo BBQ right next door which is also delicious! Highly recommend this hotel if you are wanting to stay near the airport. Also there is a great flea market just down the street!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chokolyt Good but...
I enjoyed my stay there and was able to see all my family that came in for my aunt's memorial. The downfall of my stay was while leaving the memorial, I get a call saying I was due to check out when I had made reservations for 2 nights. Right after hanging up with the receptionist, she charges my card AGAIN WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Therefore taking over $200 from my account and I'm still fighting with them to get my money. The hotel keeps withdrawing the charges and then before the bank open so I can put a stop to it they turn around and debit from my account again. I have spoke with the manager on several occasions and nothing had been done about my account not the young lady who charged my card without permission. I would recommend anyone to pay cash if you don't want your account tampered with.

Stay at HIE all the time and this is newly remodeled and one of the nicer HIE's. location is great, right down the street from airport. I called for a wake up call and didn't receive one, luckily I woke up on my own for an early flight....very annoying. Might stay here again.

I had to stay at your hotel for 2 nights while I was having plumbing issues resolved at my home. I called and then checked in with Alicia at the front desk, and she was very understanding and professional. I really enjoyed my room and the pool while I was there. I will recommend and will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RPwork Different than my last visit
My last visit a few weeks ago was very good with a nice room. When I checked in this time at 5:30 pm, they did not have an upgraded room for me even though I am a Platimum member so my room was average. The bathroom needed work on the stool and the stool was running all the time.
When I checked in, the front desk clerk almost forgot to tell me where the room was and when I asked, she told me she had checked in 45 guests and she was flustered.
This is a nice hotel and is very handy to my office but they need to upgrade the front desk staff to be a little more helpful and get them on top of their game.

The hotel stay was great but only one problem the hotel shuttle does not start to 5:00AM and I had a early morning flight so I had to get a taxi.
The hotel ordered me a taxi to take me to the airport at 4:00AM. The ride was about 2 miles and it cost me $50.00. If I would have known I would have made other plans or find a taxi which would have charge me a fair rate

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by crosshairs411 Close to everything
The evening staff is not the best. Got a room that someone else was already in, went down to get another room and the desk person just said "Ugh, all these numbers". Yeah, it a hotel, they all have numbers. Breakfast, they must of had an overstock on sausage links and western style omelets, because they served them 5 of the 7 days we were there. Rooms were nice, sometimes the maids would forget to take the trash out with them and a bag would be left on the floor. Airport is close, but I never heard the planes take off or land (I was pleasantly surprised). Other than those few things a nice hotel with an awesome BBQ joint to it. I would stay here again just because it is close to where I work when I'm in town.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JJJ3 not for me
older Ramada Inn, Maybe in process of remodeling, all tile floors, Hot water sparse, bathroom bit unkempt at corners. Fire alarm went off and kept going off for some time early in morning,
Requested wake up call did not happen.
Access to location was bit strange and hard to find late at night.
would recommend staying somewhere else

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RebeU Hotel Great but front desk service HORRIBLE
I had issues checking in AND checking out. I didn't get any of the "treats" for being a Platinum member. The two different ladies I had interaction with at the front desk weren't the nicest or quickest about fixing the situation. However the room was really nice. The restaurant attached to the hotel, VooDu BBQ, was really good. The airport pick up service was quick. This was my first time staying here but my experience with the front desk has me questioning if I should stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disenchantedly cannot say this time was okay at all . . .
This time at location was not pleasant at all, Wi-Fi was out - the AC unit in room was broken. The rooms were over booked and a large party were rowdy late at night - very difficult to sleep. Apparent the hotel overbooked lodging for a large family reunion and these folks were noisy and roamed the halls late night and early morning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Golfer7218 Good location
We have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express locations across the nation and have always been acknowledged as a platinum member. When we checked in the night manager didn't say anything and actually ignored us. She was on her cell phone when we checked in and other times as well when we would stop by in the evening asking for assistance. Everyone else was great and very helpful. We thought the bed was a little hard but that is just personal choice. Overall we had a good experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiandSisi Nice Hotel
My daughter and I came to N.O. for the Essence Music Festival and stayed from 07/04/13 to 07/08/13. Overall the stay was excellent. The staff was very curteous and the check-in/check-out process went smooth. The cleaning staff was very respectful and the cleanliness of the room was excellent.
The only thing was that I stayed in room 101 which is right by the side door and when we came back one night there were ants in the room and a BIG waterbug! I called the front desk and they came right away to get it. My daughter and I laughed after she left because we were hysterical about a bug, but it was sooo HUGE lol. We were in the south and by the door so I dont blame the hotel or the staff for that.
Also the room bathroom light flickered. I called and he came and changed it right away and it still flickered.
Overall the stay was great and I would definately stay there again. We had so much fun who cared about a flickering light and a BIG buggie LOL!

I stay at many Holiday Inn's in this region of the country. This is my least favorite. Frequent key card issues. Exit doors often broken or out of order causing you to walk around the building to use another entrance. No recognition for priority club (water, snacks, etc# No weekly specials #happy hour, etc.)

Enjoyable visit, breakfast eggs were not that good but the variety of food, cereals, pancakes, fruits, bagels, etc. made it better. Better choice of breakfast eggs would do a lot!!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Trapper22 Rude staff
Checking in was horrible, waited at the airport for 30 mins after calling repeatedly for the van. The receptionist didn't seem to care that I was a Platinum member, was completely unprofessional in her demeanor.
Breakfast area was dirty and food was cold.
I will not stay there again or recommend it at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BatonRouge225 Nice, newly renovated hotel
The hotel renovations are fresh and the hotel was clean. The price was a little more than I normally pay as a Priority Member but that is okay.
Pros: Renovations, cleanliness, convenient location
Cons: The air unit in the room did not cool as well as it should have. The new beds are very firm.
The highlight of the hotel? VooDoo BBQ next door
Excellent food and service. Helps to have an establishment like this next to the hotel.

I checked into this hotel on 4/16 and my room only had sheers at the window. Had to call front desk to get someone to install drapries since I was on the first flr. The next morning I had washed my hair and no hair dryer in room. Called fron desk and they indicated would "try" to find me one. When they brought to my room they never expressed an apology. My company had a health fair scheduled for the morning of 4/18 in a conference room on the 2nd floor and that morning no one at the front desk knew anything about or if we needed additional tables or chairs. I had to move chairs myself to second floor. Customer service was horrible. As much money as my company has spent at this hotel we should have received better service and should have had staff with a better attitude.
