wish I had known...from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was nice enough, seems like some remodeling was being done and some rooms were better than others. We were unable to get any sleep b'c the walls were very thin and we were put on a floor with agroup of delinquient kids that were being brought to NO on a conference of some kind. They were constantly slamming doors, running up and down the hallways and yelling. I called the front desk and asked for security but no one was ever sent. I finally stepped outside and them to be quiet, very politely and these kids only got worse and even tried to act like they were breaking into our doors, including the door attaching the next room. Still, nothing was done.
Finally on the last night, there were some more concerned workers and we were able to be moved to a different room with quieter, more responsible adults, but still even then you could hear much b'c of the thin walls and the poorly constructed doors.
When we left this morning, I finally saw security and they were discussing a serious accident that had happened on another floor. Anyway, if you have to, you could make it staying at this hotel, but our other friends at the hotel had similar problems. Other friends that stayed at other hotels near the convention center had much much better experiences particularly in the Hampton. Hope this helps!

Way past its primefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The lobby and hallways are old. The rugs are very, very old and smelly.
The rooms are your basic Motel 6 decor. The toilet is the kind you would find in a public restroom. Functional yes, but not very classy.
There is no mini-bar. There is no free wifi. They charge $9.95 for wired internet access when so many better hotels these days provide wifi for free. They have very limited cable tv access. The International House had MTV, Discovery, HGTV, etc., and the Doubletree only seemed to have the network channels, CNN, MSNBC and a few more.
No complaints about the staff or service.
If the Doubletree were very cheap (it should be), I would have no complaints. But I paid more to stay there than at the International House which was much better. It's just a sad, old hotel.
Loved the Doubletreefrom lhford56

Mardi Gras 2004from A TripAdvisor Member
Good idea if you have $$$ to waste, but bad if you're stumbling back drunk from Bourbon street, playing blackjack and splitting pair 10s.
Too convenient when it's right across the street. The hotel is also close to the Riverwalk and all you need as a tourist. Security in the hotel was very good for Mardi Gras because everyone coming in had to have wristbands. Bad idea also because you couldn't make any new "friends" on Bourbon and bring them back. Oh well, I got a girl anyway.
The staff was very accomodating and supplied us with fresh towels without being called. Overall, great hotel, nice staff and AWESOME time at Mardi Gras! (p.s...I might be a little biased because as long as I wasn't passed out sleeping on the street, ANY place with a roof and shower would've been nice during Mardi Gras)
OK for the moneyfrom wsteinhauer
It is very convenient to the Casino and French Quarter is 4 or 5 blocks away. If you are a casino person, consider parking in Harrahs parking deck. It is free if you play. The hotel charges $25 a night.
WORST place ever stayed in.from A TripAdvisor Member
Not family friendly. Just plain not friendly.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans
Take advantage of Public Transportation! Parking is a problem. We took advantage of the Streetcar and taxis and left the car back in Dallas. Of course, if you're going to the French Quarter, you want to spend most time walking anyway. We would have been miserable trying to find parking spots, or paying for parking at the hotel. It was well worth the $30 cab fare from the airport.
Lots to see and do. Take the shuttle between airport and downtown for under $15 or share a cab. Don't need a rental car. Parking is irritating. Walk to everything. Do the city tour and the Katrina tour. Harrah's is a great casino especially the poker room.
Free Parking Parking is expensive in downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter. Harrah's will validate your parking for 24 hours if you play for 30 minutes. I played twice and got two days' parking paid for - plus I made a profit at the tables!
