Location of the hotel was excellent an within several ways of transportation. The Trolley stop is across street and you can ride it all day for $3.00 per person. Hotel was beautiful and clean..Fulton Street right outside the hotel I believe most establishments are owned by Harrahs, restaurants and bars with a great outside place to sit for dinner or have coffee/drinks at night. Casino is located on Fulton Street along with the garage elevators. The only thing I wish the hotel had would be a pool! Casino has many offerings for food and drinks.We had comp rooms, so not sure how much the hotel is. I didn't like how the Diamond club works now, however it really didn't affect us as we wanted to experience the culture and food in NOLA. Restaurants were within walking area, or take the Trolley. Overall enjoyed staying at Harrahs New Orleans and would definetly recommend.
