"Holiday Inn Expressive!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
As of April 1st, 2015, New Orleans will welcome back the Holiday Inn Express to the downtown. Just in time and in the perfect location for business travelers and social groups, the Holiday Inn Express is the FIRST of their new "Red" brand designation. Gearing design, amenities and function toward today's modern traveler (while still offering the amenities leisure travelers have come to expect) this property will delight guests. Once you breeze through the new 'pod' style check in area (don't worry, there are live agents available to assist) and get to your room you'll be pleased with the PLENTIFUL outlets (and USB ports) throughout the room. Comfy beds, contemporary colors and windows give the rooms a spacious feel. Since this was a historic building, they couldn't change the superstructure, but that just gives each room it's own flavor. Barn doors on the bathrooms and outside vanities make it convenient if more than one person is getting ready for a night on the town (Bourbon Street is a 10 minute walk away, ya know!). Parking is limited, but several area lots provide low cost options for all. Fitness center, pool and flexible meeting space round out the list of amenities.

Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express New Orleans Downtown

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Experience!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Overall, I was a little disappointed in my experience with the Holiday Inn Express New Orleans Downtown. I'd first of all like to state that the front desk staff and the customer service (for the most part) were outstanding and the property was clean and very well maintained. My issues lay more with the policies/practices of the hotel. I was very disappointed to arrive to find that the hotel was short two rooms. This, after I had last minute cancellations of two rooms (which the hotel was not aware of, meaning the hotel was really four rooms short for my reservation). This was particularly disconcerting because I had FULLY PREPAID for the group's entire stay and had informed the hotel from the onset (with a reminder earlier in the week) that my group would have a late arrival (we were traveling by bus from 14 hours away). I don't understand a hotel practice that allows the double selling of a room. I was traveling with a group of students who are minors. Had four of them not cancelled and we needed all the rooms we'd paid for, we would have ended up with a situation of either having to send some of them to another hotel, or reduce the chaperone coverage we'd planned for by sending some of the chaperones to a separate hotel for the night (which was in fact, the option we were forced to take). When making my arrangements, I provided all the information needed including total number of rooms and a rooming list (specifying which rooms were for students, therefore requiring two beds and which for chaperones or drivers, which could use one or two beds). Yet, not only were there not enough rooms, but some of the student rooms had to have rollaway beds brought in because they were placed in rooms with only one bed. While the hotel overall was clean, the housekeeping services were subpar. The first day of my stay my room was cleaned, but the trash was not emptied. The second day, I left my room before 9 a.m. and returned just after four p.m. to find the room had not been cleaned at all. I contacted the front desk and was told housekeeping was still working. Wanting to take a shower and get some rest, I asked that in lieu of a full cleaning, they could just send me some fresh towels and trash bags. Forty five minutes later, I went to the front door myself to retrieve the towels that never arrived. The claim of housekeeping was that I had a, "Do Not Disturb" sign on my door. That was simply untrue. As I was chaperoning a group of high school students, not being disturbed is not an option. There are tales of similar lackadaisical housekeeping actions from others in my group. Lastly, one of the main reasons for choosing Holiday Inn Express was that it includes breakfast. Day two of our stay found the breakfast bar to be severely limited and indeed, completely depleted by 8:30 a.m. Leaving many of our students without any breakfast. This was not due to an overwhelming number of guests that morning but, according to staff, to a shipment that did not come in. As I stated in the first paragraph, the staff of the hotel were great in trying to resolve most of the problems that occurred. My issue is that these are problems that could have been avoided if the hotel would only improve its practices and procedures: 1) Do not sell rooms that have already been prepaid. 2) If a rooming list is requested and provided, for groups do a better job of accommodating those lists. 3) Clean the rooms of current guests first. 4) Do a better job of maintaining kitchen inventory.
