About a two hour drive to New Orleans. Very cool bridges, swamps and lakes along the way. Drove past Lake Pontchartrain. Arrived in NO and drove past the Superdome enroute to Harrah's. Harrah's is right downtown in the middle of everything. We got a comped room on the 17th floor, facing the Mississippi River. It was awesome. Put our suitcases away …

Woke up this morning and holy ****, it was not raining! Cloudy and cold, but no rain. Good thing we didn't go up to Birmingham and Memphis because they got hammered with freezing rain and snow. Drove through downtown Mobile, on our way to the USS Alabama, a WWII destroyer that you can explore. Took pictures of some fantastic houses. They were …

I'm a big fan of bookends. In college, I found a lot of joy in going to the Sig Nu beach formal with the same guy as a senior whom I went with as a freshman. I like the irony and the significance of connecting the end with the beginning.
As I sit in my deliciously comfortable bed, my last night in the magical city that is New Orleans, I again find myself in this riptide of emotions caused by ...

Sorry, wrong bar

... these turtles were already cooked so I wasn’t really
hurting the species! I know, I know it’s the whole concept and eating turtle
propagates the whole industry and I promise to never do it again.

Finally the two old ladies headed back to the
hotel so Karen and Emile could partake in the party atmosphere freely. So here
we are in our jammies relaxing and getting ready for another eventful ...

... the day on the bayou, and river street. There are a hundreds of things to do and see and eat here. We will only scratch the surface of the mystery of this place. I know I will never get enough. Over the next few days, we spent most of our time outside. Looking, and breathing it all in. During the day we were on the river, at night walked the French Quarter. My ears melted as we walked by bar after bar, with ...

    I love this hotel

    from

    New Hotel in New Orleans. Excellent service, beautiful hotel,

    large guest rooms. Guest room has sofa and chair and built in entertainment center. Bathrooms are marble, with a hugh soaking tub and glass enclosed shower. Many pictures of New Orleans in room and all thur hotel. Restaurant downstairs that you can purchase food with casino comps. Also a jazz band plays at night . One of the friendliest and beautiful hotels I have ever been in. There is a exercise area but no pool. Courtyard outside of hotel connecting to casino with statues of jazz musicians. Courtyard is almost a block long with tables and chairs.

    Tight Slots! Go to Vegas!

    from

    This is really the only casino in the area so I assume since they have no one to compete with, they are the TIGHTEST casino we have ever been to. They should at least throw you a bone to at least tease you to stick around and gamble more but NOTHING! The slot machines were awful-you would think that the machines next to the main entrance would be looser but that is not the case. They put most of the penny slots in the front b/c they pay the least amount of money and make the most amount of noise! Very deceptive.

    Go To Las Vegas

    from

    This casino was ok before the hurricane but now that it has reopened it has to be one of the worst casinos in the US. They must be trying to make up the lost revenue from being closed because the slots NEVER paid off. NOT EVEN A CHERRY!!!! We played several hundred dollars in various slot machines and got no play at all.

    Drive to the Gulf Coast

    from

    This casino offers little except the opportunity to leave more than you should in New Orleans! The players tend to be pure amateurs (blackjack: split 10s against a ten; don't split 5's against a 6) so most tables are not worth playing. There are two areas: one is intended for the amateurs and has limits of $25 and under, at the second almost all tables are over $25. So, it is impossible to play blackjack with experienced players for less than $25.

    Don't Miss Earl Turner at Harrahs Casino

    from

    I caught the Earl Turner show on Mardi Gras (2/8/05). This guy is an awsome entertainer. To say that he knows how to work up the audience is an understatement. He literaly makes the whole room want to get up and dance in the isles. Fantastic show. I plan to go again soon. From the show of hands, it appeared that about one fourth, or more, of the audience were repeat customers.

    Don't invite players if you're not going to provide customer service!!!!

    from

    Received offers from Harrahs-NOLA on several occasions. We finally decided to do a trip to New Orleans. We ended up with an awful hotel experience (booked through Harrahs) at the Doubletree Inn. I tried reaching the VIP host I had talked to after making the reservation. He was not to be found at all the 1st full day we were there. (actually his co-workers couldn't find him either). We had numerous problems at the Doubletree Inn and I wanted to see if Harrahs could intervene. (see Doubletree Inn reviews for my review of how terrible that hotel is).

    Watch Out!

    from

    Harrah's Casino was the typical casino you would find in either AC or Las Vegas. During the day time, they had $10.00 black jack tables and crap tables. And during the night, they raise the table limits. I am not sure if you can grandfather in. But when playing blackjack, there are lots of people who either play weird (Double down on a 12) or who have no idea what is going on. Because of this, this will mess up your entire table hand. But other than that, it was okay.

    Go to Biloxi

    from

    These slots are not loose at all. I like them where you win enough to keep you interested or for the fun of it. Losing money is ok if you can sit there awhile. Played a lot of these, and they take your money fast. Went to Biloxi and had much more fun. Don't waste your time here.
