Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn New Orleans Chateau Lemoyne Hotel

Great Place

from A TripAdvisor Member
I had read some of the negative reviews on this hotel, but I was attending a conference there, and decided to judge for myself. Boy am I glad I did. This was a great little hotel. The location is perfect, the staff was attentative, and my sleeping room was a nice size with one of the most comfortable beds I've encountered in a hotel. The conference room we were in was large and very nicely prepared by the staff. I have nothing negative to say! I travel a lot, and always check tripadvisor for the city/hotel I'll be staying in. I do not understand why some reviewers insist on comparing 3 star hotels to 5 star hotels. This was just a great hotel.

Not up to its Potential

from John_of_GA
We stayed at the Chateau LeMoyne the weekend after Mardi Gras. The hotel has an EXCELLENT location on quiet Dauphine Street one block from bustling Bourbon. There is no Holiday Inn sign so if you're driving fast at night you'll miss it. A garage 1/2 block toward Canal was cheaper than the hotel parking lot. The front desk is nice and there is a beautiful courtyard with a swimming pool (closed for the season). Rooms are large for the French Quarter. The beds have new linens and down comforters. Our room had a French window opening onto Iberville Street which was nice. On the downside, the bathroom looked as if it had not been refurbished since the 70's. The shower/tub did not drain and maintenance had to work on it for 15 minutes with a "snake" to fix it. One elevator was out of order the whole time we were there. Housekeeping was minimal; I don't think the maid did anything to the bathroom except change the towels. There were water marks on the ceiling. Management is obviously living on the LeMoyne's stellar location because it really needs some TLC to turn it into a first class hotel.

Chateau Lemoyne - mediocre!

from DTimberLD
My husband and I stayed at this Holiday Inn, February 2005, for two nights using our Priority Club points. We figured, hey, it's free. How bad could it be? Well, we found it bad. After the first night, my husband referred to it as "Priority Club Punishment" as opposed to "Priority Club Rewards."

The location is good and the lobby is small but acceptable. Our room, however, was tiny, with one tiny window directly above a balcony being used by a bunch of college students. They had promised us an "upgrade" since we were using our points, but it seemed as though we must have gotten one of the least desirable rooms. When we requested a move (in the afternoon), we were told they were completely sold out and we couldn't move. Worse yet, the beds were so uncomfortable - sagging mattresses, sheets felt like sandpaper.

To top it off, the tissue box was never replenished, some of the lightbulbs were burned out, and the towels were scratchy and stained. They claim to have a hospitality guarantee whereby guests do not pay for the part of their stay they were not happy with - well, we were pretty unhappy and none of it was resolved. Luckily, the third night (when we were paying with money, not with points) we moved over to the Ritz Carlton. Whew - just be sure you never stay at a Holiday Inn AFTER the Ritz. You'd be too depressed. Now that one was FAB! (And, only $40 more per night than the Chateau Lemoyne!)

t stay here again for a penny

Stayed here Presidents Day weekend 2005. The hotel was dirty, the towels had other people's hair on them, and the lobby bathroom was cleaner than our room bathroom. We never got new towels...called 3 times and finally had to steal them off of the housekeeper's cart every morning. In fact, the housekeeper used our toilet and forgot to flush. The staff was rude from the front desk to the housekeepers. The one positive aspect was our room was ready at noon to check-in. Would never stay here again.

CH. Lemoyne was great for us

from A TripAdvisor Member
Face it, New Orleans hotels are very expensive (except during the VERY hot months). I wouldn't normally pay $190 for a Holiday Inn, but on a weekend in NOLA there's very little even at that price. So, over-priced by other locations, but it was clean, the room was a very good size, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom functional. Not luxury, but walking distance to the action without being in the midst of the noise. Friendly, brought extra towels, good housekeeping etc. Worth staying at.

Good Chateau

Pretty good hotel for the price. Great location (one block from Bourbon St.), good sized room, and clean. Staff was helpful but a little distracted.
Would stay again, but would like to try other hotels first.

Great Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn twice. I would recommend it highly. This is not your average Holiday Inn. It is well located in the French Quarter.

Loved this hotel

We had a wonderful time in New Orleans. The hotel room was beautiful and the location is in walking distance to everything. We did have a slight problem with parking. The hotel's garage was full at check in time but they referred us to a public parking garage at the corner which was an easy walk and we saved $2. a day by parking there as opposed to the hotel garage. The staff at the hotel was friendly and accomodating to us with all our needs. The room was clean and quiet. The pool area is very nice. The breakfast buffet was immediately replenished with fresh hot food when necessary. One other problem we did have was the hotel would not honor our hotel room coupon because we had pre-booked our room and the coupon did not state that pre-booked rooms were not honored with the coupon. So we did lose on that deal. Overall it was a great place to stay and we would stay there again.

Enjoyed the New Orleans experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I travelled to New Orleans as part of our honeymoon itinerary in April 2004 and stayed at the Chateau Lemoyne. When we arrived we were both exhausted after our herculion journey from Las Vegas. I think the hotel lobby staff may have sensed this because we had no problem in getting into our room even though it was relatively early. We found the rooms to be small and for a honeymoon couple to share a small double bed is not the most comfortable. What is it with hotels supplying two double beds in a room!!
Anyway, our experience was enriched by the service of the lady behind the tour counter who helped us with booking tours and providing breakfast and dinner recommendations. The food at the restaurant we went to for breakfast was superb, if only I could remember the name of the place.
Overall we had a great time in New Orleans and would recommend the Chateau Lemoyne to others.

Nice small hotel

from ljr88888
Stayed here for a conference the last week of June 2004. Nice hotel, very attractive courtyard with pool. The pool was warm. Buffet breakfast was good - certainly plenty to eat. I had free coupons but I believe it is normally $10.95. Restaurant is only open for breakfast, but there are many eating places in the area. Front desk was slow and bill was confusing. They have a travel desk with information on local tours, maps, etc. Only drawback was I couldn't open the window in the room and I prefer fresh air to air conditioning. I suppose most visitors to New Orleans prefer the A/C. My friend had a room with a balcony overlooking Rue Dauphine, which was nice. Conference meeting rooms were too cold (like most hotels!). Great location - only a block from Bourbon Street.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

Shop around for hotel savings New Orleans' French Quarter wasn't severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina but coverage of the 2005 storm's damage in the region and public perception have made it slow to recover as a tourist destination. The French Quarter is everything that it always was in the past so don't hesitate to visit, but take advantage of discounting as hotels compete for the more limited number of visitors presently available to fill their rooms.

New Orleans is THE place to visit again! New Orleans is back in business. All attractions are up and running again, and tourists are coming back to the city. Although large parts of the suburbs are still in dispair, the city needs you! It still is a wonderful place to visit, great atmosphere, lots of things to do, so please come to New Orleans and help the city rebuild.

Great meals! You are going to eat well in New Orleans! We celebrated my birthday at the romantic Commander's Palace. Divine! We took clients to Jacamos (not sure of the spelling) which was my favorite! It was wonderful beginning to end. Breakfast at Petunias was an experience I will never forget! Loved the crabmeat eggs benedict. Enjoy!
