The hotel is not kid friendly by any means.
A majority of the hotel's food, like the buffet, Besh Steakhouse, Fuddruckers burgers, Starbucks, etc...are all within the casino building, making it ALL OFF-LIMITS to minors..and not just minors, anyone under 21....even if 20 yrs old, can't eat. Hotel has no pool. There's a tunnel from hotel to casino building so you can safely cross the street, except for anyone under 21. The website does NOT make any of this clear. For example, any mention of age in regards to the buffet is in the "Group Information" section....well, a small family isn't a "group" and not going to read it...it's hidden.
Hotel room was fine, nothing special. There must have been some roadwork on the city view side, because all night there was a loud banging like a steel drum...I think it was cars driving over a steel manhole or something.
Casino itself was good. Play was fine.
Bourbon Street is nasty. Smells like poo and more.
Superdome looks like brand new, like just built.

Room Tip: No kids in primary restaurants. Consider it an adult only hotel. Parking/Valet is $35 a night.

Very nice hotel adjacent to the casino and within easy walking distance of the French Quarter. This hotel boasts an very elegant lobby and a really great Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. They did not have a cafe for breakfast. The rooms were up to date and clean. Room safes and a small but empty refrigerator. Also a small single portion coffee maker. An improvement would be a couple of bottled water in the rooms. Beds were comfortable but the pillows were cheap with hard spots at the corners (weird). During our 2 day stay we were allowed only 3 bath towels. No washcloths or hand towels. We asked the maid for washcloths but she replied that the hotel didn't have enough for all the rooms. We never had this happen before. Would definitely stay here again because of the location and the friendly staff. Hopefully, when you stay they'll have more towels!

Room Tip: The rooms that have a good view of the Mississippi River are interesting.

Spent 5 days here in April. No complaints. Great location becuase you can walk to the French Quarter, the Warehouse district and the River Walk. Decent standard rooms, room service was also pretty good - triple decker grilled cheese and fries. Bell service was fast. Couldnt get the River view (sold out for Final 4) but we had a nice view of the city. Casino is next to the hotel, but not connected. There is a walkway and then a quick step outside to get from one to the other. Large, upscale casino, thats nice to hit late night on the way back to the hotel from partying. We will stay here every time we come to town - it was a good fit for us. All staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful, including the doormen. Dissapointed that there is no spa. You can use the partner hotel next door, but its just a dry sauna.

Stayed at Harrahs on April 6 and 7. When we arrived the room was not ready so they registered me and called when the room became available (about an hour later). We were put in room 1908 and the room was not clean (bed covers all on the floor, pillow cases dirty, potato chips all over the floor). I called the front desk to complain and they told me to hold on. As I was holding on the phone, the housekeeper knocked on the door and came to clean the room so we left. When we returned later to the room to put our luggage in, our key would not work and I heard people talking in the room. We knocked on the door only to find another couple in the room. They were as surprised as we were. How embarrasing was this. Me and my 76 y/o mother that has had knee replacement had to drag all of our luggage back downstairs to find out what was going on. We were told that they changed our room and didn't let us know. Terrible!!!!! Not sure if I will stay there again. Room still had old time TV's, and furniture.

Just returned from a 4 night stay and can not say enough about the hotel and even won some money in the casino, great combination. We were given a suite and was it sweet! The room was so big and complete with everything! We stayed in a corner suite. Room 1112. The employees there have always been the best and friendliest , eager to help you with anything. Of all the Harrahs I have stayed at this is the best ----all around! Love it there!!!!!!
