Good for College Kids
For whatever reason, we ended up getting a suite with a living room and a bedroom for what we assumed to be the price of a regular room.
Everything in the room worked: our safe, the 2 TVs, the refrigerator, everything in the bathroom. That's not to say there weren't problems.
Our shower fluctuated rapidly from hot to cold. Behind some of the cabinets were exposed pipes, but everything looked nice as it was set up. The maid service forgot to give us towels and cups but they brought them up promptly when we called. The neighborhood is very nice during the day but rather deserted at night. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to Bourbon St., but that was close enough. Not great, but not terrible.
Unbearable HOT water!!!
The positive side of the hotel is the room (401) was large enough for 4 people. The bellhop was very courteous and helpful. The price, after all taxes was $149. The negative side is I could not bare the extremely hot water!!! The water in the shower, sink and even toilet was steaming at all times and could not be fixed apparently!!! The A/C had problems throughout our stay although the repairman attempted to fix it. The wall safe did not work and no one ever showed up to fix it. After frequent calls to the front desk, we gave up.
We booked online with Expedia and everything was ready for us upon arrival. With some of the negative reviews on the place, we were a little apprehensive, but the place was great. The room was clean and nicely appointed. While the place is nothing elaborate, it did measure up nicely to other hotel stays that I've had. Oh, and thanks for the hospitality, Leonard.
We Enjoyed and would do it again
After spending 7 days at the Ramada Inn & Suites,New orleans ,Downtown Super Dome I must take time and write My review of this property. Eight of us stayed at this property for 7 days and We had a wonderful stay....It was AFFORDABLE,CLEAN, NICE LARGE ROOMS and MOST OF ALL THE PERSONAL WAS WONDERFUL .We want to thank Bob and Leo at the lounge and Larry and Leonard who took care of our luggage and helped us in every way possible.We found the food and service in the cafe very good and the front desk took care of us quickly in getting us to our rooms...This property is so located that we could walk to BOURBON STREET ,The FRENCH QUARTERS and the RIVER WALK. Upon reading some of the bad reviews we were a little uncomfortable going in to this hotel..But I will stay there again when we go back to this GREAT and FRIENDLY CITY. All of us from North Dakota thank all of You for a great job well done....over all we were all HAPPY...By the way FREE SAFES in every room were provided for Your important Items....Like in any large city...do not leave valuables in your rooms
My wife and I along with another couple stayed at the Ramada Inn and Suites Downtown New Orleans - Superdome a few weeks ago for the Sugar Bowl. This was hands down the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. First, we had no cold water the entire time we stayed there whice meant VERY hot showers and hot water for bathroom needs. Second, the AC would not put out any cold air. We had it set on as cold as it would go for about 12 hours and the temperature in the room never changed. Lastly and worst while we were attending the Sugar Bowl our room was broken into and we had a cell phone and wallet taken. Now the weird thing is was there was no forceable entry into the room and we had both electronic 'keys'. This meant that someone with another 'key' came into our room.
They ran a report to see who had accessed our room and at 7 PM that evening someone with a 'master key' entered the room. The only people with master keys are hotel employees. The hotel workers and management denied everything and offered basically no help whatsoever. With that said, if you are ever looking to stay in downtown New Orleans...DO NOT stay at this hotel.
We stayed in October 2003. The hotel is in poor shape. We found Hair in the ice bucket and bugs in the bed. Also their were stains on the sheets and mattress. The service was horrible. I would never recommend to some to stay in this hotel
Nice Hotel, Bad smell
We stayed here for 3 days in early September and were pleased by the friendly service and the large room that we received. They were above average in size and quality. There was ample space to store luggage but the bathroom needs renovating.
They hada free shuttle to and from the French Quarter proving very handy and really nice friendly drivers. The buffet breakfast is better than average but this is not included in the price.
On a down side the hallway and lobby smelt like mouldy wet carpet and like something had died in the wall. I could handle the smell for 2 days but it was becoming unbearable. The price we paid was excellent for what we received.
Ramada is ok
The hotel is old and needs remodeled, the service was slow, and the parking was across the street in a parking garage ($12/day). We did receive a good price which helped to make up for the problems.
Not happy at all!
The parking was by far the worst!!! You had to park your car in a PUBLIC garage, which was located down the street and around the corner!! During special events, you are charged everytime you leave out and come back in...It was rediculous...The rooms were a nice size but not 100% clean....The bathroom was just terrible and EXTRA small....No continental breakfast or anything complimentary at this hotel! the breakfast buffett sucks big time....I would never stay at this hotel again!
Great for Price
I stayed at the Ramada Inn Superdome for three nights in August of 2002. For $59 per night, we had VERY spacious rooms, with two queen beds..a great deal!
My family and I were returning from a cruise, and were spending four additional days in New Orleans. The hotel is older, but the rooms were very large. In fact, we slept four adults to a room (we had two rooms). We did rent one cot for $10 per night (but actually only had to pay for one night...they said don't worry about the rest!
So, if you're just looking for lodging, with no fancy perks...this ist he place!

After the long day yesterday we had a nice slow morning. I got up first and started making bacon and pancakes which roused the rest of the house and Hayley came and took over the pancakes so I could produce copious amounts of coffee. Very yummy and satisfying feast!
We decided to head in the opposite direction today and went to City Park as it was once again a nice sunny day. Once again the guys charged ahead so they missed out on a stop at CC's, a New ...
... we settled for a nap first before heading out to the city. When planning this holiday, I had no desire whatsoever to see New Orleans, mainly due to the city's reputation for crime. I certainly didn't see any example of it anywhere we went.
The city was surprisingly cold tonight. Since this holiday involved seeing the Deep South and the Caribbean, I only packed two pairs of jeans and one jumper, which I'm now wondering was the right thing to do. The French Quarter was ...
... It doesn't matter Jock I offer as we get into the lift. We arrive on the 3rd floor and find our room. We know that Bourbon Street awaits, and so we decide to get immediately showered and changed as quickly as possible, which in our case is pretty slow Jock has an order to getting ready, (everything) so he has to iron his shirt before he gets in the shower, but then doesn't want you to have a shower until he has ironed his shirt. It's non-productive and non-sensical ...
... of course), the humidity and heat got the best of us and we decided to head back to the hotel for a much needed rest. We did head back out at 4pm though, mainly to take some photos of New Orleans in all its glory.
We headed down and took photos at the Mississippi River, St Louis Cathedral, and the streets that were full of people selling their art and playing their musical ...
... and red beans and rice. I had the crawfish and prawn mardi gras pasta with an Alfredo sauce. It was not bad but, like to rest of Bourbon Steet, over-hyped and touristy, and not one we would go back to. We like to find the real heart of a place, and try to avoid too many tourist eateries where we can. Sadly, this evening fell firmly into the tourist category and we mist seek out the true experiences tomorrow.
