Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn New Orleans West Bank Tower

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great staff, maintenance needed."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The front desk lady was very nice and professional. She greeted us each time she saw us and tried to accommodate us as needed. One of the lights in the room did not work and the tub was clogged. The 2nd night we showered, the water came out of the faucet and shower so we asked to switch rooms. The new room had the same problem. Also, the curtains were see though so there was no sleeping in since the sun light shone through. Will not be staying here again.

"Horrible"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We had issue after issue. From tub backing up, air conditioning not working(switched rooms at 1:30am), house keeping didn't come two days in a row, carpet in first room was extremely sticky/dirty, the second room smelled like urine, no blow dryer or microwave in our room as stated online, coffee pot was broken in the second room, the mattress flipped up when we sat on the sorbet of the bed almost throwing the other person laying in the bed into the night stand(dangerous), comforter and duvet were dirty when we first got to the first room, lock on the bathroom door in the first room would stick (it took a while to get it to unlock some times), maintenance guy that came with the plunger was rude, some of the people were great but a few people at the front desk were rude. When checking out, the only thing they offered me was feeding us at the restaurant. We had a flight to catch, so we couldn't stay to eat. So, they didn't compensate for the horrible stay in any way. They should have compensated us two days stay at least. We stayed there for five horrible nights. I have never had this kind of service in a hotel. The only people that were consistently nice, were the security guards and the ladies from housekeeping that we did see.
