Who are they trying to kid? This is an insult to me. I have spoken to someone there in the office that told me the reason is this: So that the hotel does not lose revenue from 3-4 people staying in a room, when they only pay for 1-2. Is is the water consumption that allows for an extra $30 a night per additional person? I think not. In the hotel's mind, they are losing the ability to sell another room by having 3-4 in a room. So don't believe its for "your protection." Please! Its not...
oh, and don't let the intimidating security guard in a suit and tie guarding the front door scare you, JUST DO NOT STAY HERE. The rooms are old, musty, smelly and if it weren't for their location and half decent restaurant this property would not be a Ramada Gold Key property.

Loved our Stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff was always very pleasant and we would definately stay here again. We are returning to New Orleans for Thanksgiving and will be staying at the Royal Sonesta as there is nothing available at the Ramada. We are hoping we are just as pleased.

Who ever heard of a hotel enforcing a "no unregistered guest in room" policy? That was one thing - how you were informed of this policy and the rude, insulant, and judmental way it was enforced was another!
Furthemore, the no guest policy was strictly enforced unless the staff liked the way you way you or "your guest" looked - at which case it was not enforced or only one party of a couple was asked to present a cardkey. I witnessed this harasment based non-enforcement at four seperate and distinct times.
The way this hotel treated guests and the city's police state attitude about this weekend tells me they don't apprecated individual business - and maybe this weekend's 90 million dollar event needs to take a break until the city, hotels, and bars change their attitute and treat patrons with at least a basic level of respect.
The hotel informed guests of these rules by an three page list left on beds - their was no notice of these rules given when making reservation or checking in. At that date, the hotel was inforcing a 100% cancellation charge and any guest violating the policy "will be asked to leave the premises immediatedly and CANNOT expect or demand ANY REFUND of the room charge."
These terms and conditions were enforced without due prior notice. If a hotel wants to enforce an unusual policy wouldn't it be resonsible to expect notice of such upon making reservation through the hotel, upon confirmation with the hotel on serveral occasions, or upon checkin?
Should't you have the right to make an informed decission on how to be treated and the level of service and respect to be expected for your dollars?
For furhter reference to quote the hotel rules: "All registered hotel guests are given coded keys at check-in. PLEASE CARRY YOUR OWN INDIVIDUAL KEY AND ANOTHER FORM OF ID AT ALL TIMES. The doormen and security officers will ask for your hotel key(s). Individuals not carrying a hotel key will be stopped at the front door of the hotel.
ONLY REGISTERED GUESTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE HOTEL. Your room key and/or second form of picture ID such as a drivers license is also required. HOTEL GUESTS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BRING NON-REGISTERED GUESTS INTO THE HOTEL. ONLY REGISTERED HOTEL GUESTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE HOTEL."
Plus the airconditioning did not work after being repaired twice (which took all day) and when finally asking the management to be moved to a different room, the staff was dowright discourteous and evasive and responded only after I had the service person contact the front desk twice!
Enough said, you are forewarned!

Top Local Tips for New Orleans
Did a lot in three days Keep walking - everything well within range - Cafe du monde, Jackson Square, Harrah's, great bars/restaurants everywhere - read where you want to go first as the slection is so great when you get there, it may be overwhelming. Keep a sense of humour and enjoy.
Cheaper good cajun/creaole food in the Quarter can be tough to find... walk down Bourbon (take a right out front door of hotel) past the gay section and you'll come to Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop about 5-6 blocks down, take a right towards the river and a couple blocks down there's a corner store that has great gumbo, boudin and other less pricey options. Do the walk during the day at least the first time, Bourbon gets a little empty at night that far down so you'll want to know you're in the right place.
French Market The French Market is a must shopping experience when you go to the French Quarter. It's been there since the 1800's and is as much a tradition in NO as Beignets & Coffee. You can find cool, one of a kind items, made by local artisans along with t-shirts, silver, etc. If your looking for T-shirts & things of that nature, be sure to stop and check the prices of all the shops on the way down to the Market to get an idea as to what the T-shirt prices are. You may or may not find the t-shirt your looking for at a cheaper price. It's the place to go for feather masks, beads etc. You won't find them cheaper anywhere else in the Quarter.
