Game play has always been consistently good. I would recommend Harrah's New Orleans anytime. Location and amenities are hard to beat. I wish they had more newer slots but the ones they have play well.

All the games you want, good food and cold drinks. It's non smoking now so I don't smell like a ashtray when leaving. Played Mississppi stud and won a little but hade a good time doing it. Nice poker room and go ahead and get a lucky dog while your waiting for a table to open.

Very nice Casino, not to big or to small. On the main drag (Canal Street) so very accesable from the hotels.

I didn't win but I won't hold that against them :) We went late at night and only seen 1 waitress. Her attitude could've been better. Drinks are free if you are gambling and you can order from the machine. But be warned its only well drinks... if you want name brand you have to pay. As much as we... More

Played here on Christmas Day, wasn't sure if it were because the staff we encountered was working on the holidays or not, but they were so unwelcoming and borderline rude. My wife and I was playing Pai Gow Poker. Love playing it, but the dealers/casino had all these rules, rules that just seemed to be counterintuitive compared to any other... More

I don't think of mainly gambling when in New Orleans but if you have the time, it's a nice casino. I didn't find the restuarent to be great but for a little gaming fun, it's worth the walk and look.

We did not use the parking garage, so we were just playing for a short time for the fun of it. On our last trip we came out ahead, but this time we made a small contribution to the cause, but still had fun and a few free drinks. Walked over to the Harrah's Hotel, and saw the most gorgeous... More

We had an excellent visit at the Harrah's casino except for the fact that I left some money behind. It is a very impressive casino with affordable tables ($10 min. Blackjack). I am not a huge gambler, but they put you at ease and of course cater to your needs in order for you to continue reaching in your pocket.... More

This casino is large enough to "feel" like a Las Vegas casino. The dining options are plentiful. The ventilation was top notch. Sadly we lost money, but they have a ton of different--and fun--games.

The experience of going to this casino was different from other ones I have been to. To me it was so colorful I felt like I was at the Mardi Gras. Although I didn't break the bank, I still enjoyed myself. Plus the casino was within walking distance of the shopping mall. Both locations were stops located on the Hop-on... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
