Homewood Suites New Orleans

Reviewed 6 March 2012

6 of us stayed here for a NOLA bachelor party. Rooms were nice. Location was nice. The breakfast was good. For the cost, I would have thought the rooms would have been a little nicer (they were very plain). This is probably a great business hotel.

I stayed here for two nights for business beginning Ash Wednesday. It could be the staff was exhausted after a busy Mardi Gras season, but they seemed lackluster and unenthusiastic. Other than the check-in person Wednesday afternoon, no one was downright rude.

The room was very clean and in fairly good condition except the plumbing fixtures could use some updating. Toilet seat was loose (I tightened it - but I shouldn't have had to!) and the water faucets were leaking. Sink didn't drain well.

I was on 9th floor and heard no street noise. Kitchenette well furnished.
Breakfast was outstanding! Excellent spread, plentiful and at correct temperature. Light supper also great and good to have menu listed in room so no surprises. Again - employees were not very outgoing and seemed unhappy. (Maybe they need a raise or some time off?)

Internet free and speed ok. Coffee pot worked but only one coffee package. All other appliances functional. Toiletries great - all Nutrogena stuff, as is usual with Homewood.

It was odd that there were no employees (bellman, etc) to assit with luggage or cabs. Door very hard to open and NOT ADA compliant. Taxis difficult to find - finally went across street to other hotel and tipped their bellman to get cab. Again - could have been the post Mardi Gras slump hitting the whole city.

I'd stay at and recommend Homewood Suites again. Location good for work and fair for meals. Rouse grocery store 2 blocks away and well stocked with ready-to-eat and other foodstuff at decent prices.

Room Tip: Higher floor - less noise

Thank you for staying with us this past Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras was a very busy time for us, but I am sorry that you did not receive the enthusiastic welcome that our hotel is usually known for. We also appreciate that you would stay with us again!!! New customers are important to us, but repeat clientele is definitely the back bone of any business.

Great central location within 5 block walk of the French quarters, World War II Museum, restaurants, shops, Supermarket, etc. Full breakfast every morning and evening snack with beer and wine. Great staff and accommodations. The suite was spacious with sofa bed and two TV's. Would definitely stay here again!

Hi Conscom Surrey, British Columbia,
We are delighted that you had a great time at our hotel, and ejoyed our convenient location. You are also right in regards to the new Rouses grocery store, it has been a huge asset to both us and our guests since it opened a few months ago. Once again, thank you for staying with us!

We were in town for the BCS National Championship Game so the room was EXTREMELY overpriced (as was to be expected) & required a 4-night stay in order to obtain a reservation. This is a nice hotel that's in a good location relative to the Superdome. (It's just a few blocks down Poydras Street, so we were able to walk to the Dome & back...no worries about where to park or the additional cost of Dome parking).
Parking at the hotel is not included in the room cost, so that's an additional charge if you are using a car. The hotel's parking lot is toward the back & side of the hotel & is well-lit with security doing periodic checks. It is possible for the attendant to have you double or triple park, depending upon how full the hotel is, which then requires you to leave a key in order for your vehicle to be moved, if necessary.
The hotel staff were very nice, both at check-in & check-out, as well as any other times we had interaction with them during our stay.
The suite was nice, though it needed some minor cleaning throughout...which is the case at a lot of hotels, so I'm always sure to bring my own Lysol & antibacterial wipes.
Having a kitchen area with apartment-sized refrigerator, microwave, 2 stovetop burners, dishwasher, utensils & dishes was a plus since we were there for 5 days. Bring your own (or purchase upon arrival) dishwashing liquid, as well as extra paper towels & dishwasher detergent if you will be staying several days.
The bedroom area is separated with a door from the living/kitchen area, which is great if one person is wanting to sleep & someone else wants to watch tv, eat, read, etc. There are 2 televisions - one in the bedroom & one in the living area.
We were there during a very busy time; thus, there could be quite a bit of street noise at times. We took the advice of some other reviewers & requested a higher floor, which seemed to help. (I always bring a small fan, too when traveling to help drown out any possible outside noises...be it in the hall or out on the street).
Bed was comfortable.
Closet was spacious. (It's located in the vanity area).
Vanity area is spacious, too, but only one sink. The sink/vanity area is separated by a door from the shower/toliet room. But, the sink/vanity area opens into the bedroom. (No door to close it off, which could be a problem if one person has to be up early & others don't...the light or running water may be a problem).
Mother's Restaurant is several blocks down on Poydras & has great "classic Cajun-style dishes". Yum!
We had a car with us, but found it easiest to walk everywhere we went. The Riverwalk, French Quarter & Jackson Square are not terribly far from the hotel, but if you find walking to be difficult in your normal day to day activities, you probably need to consider having a car or taking a taxi to the areas mentioned above.
Overall we enjoyed our time at this hotel & would stay here again.

Ended up staying in this hotel because most others were booked during Mardi Gras. Why there were vacancies is beyond me--the hotel was very reasonable (think we paid under $200/night), they provide both breakfast and dinner, the rooms are HUGE, and the staff was as warm and friendly as almost any other non-Ritz Carlton hotel in which I've ever stayed.
Mardi Gras location is perfect--you are 2 blocks from the parade route, and a few more from the quarter. Getting in and out of the hotel during Mardi Gras can be a bit of a challenge due to traffic and parade routes, so get a schedule, and plan accordingly. Everyone complains about parking, but it's comparable with other hotels, and other than the fact that it's outdoors, it's a very minor hassle. Overall, two enthusiastic thumbs up. We would definitely stay there again.
