Location is king at the InterContinental New Orleans. Travelers and business types prefer this hotel for its Central Business District address that's still a short walk to the French Quarter. It earns top ratings from all guests, having recently been named to the list of Best Hotels in New Orleans by readers of Conde Nast Traveler.

Rooms are spacious and feature 42-inch flat-panel TVs, Keurig coffee makers, rainfall showerheads and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout; guests can also arrange for turndown service in the evenings. The hotel also has an outdoor rooftop pool on the 15th floor (one of the best in the city according to Oyster.com) as well as a fitness center; guests can also arrange for private car service or even babysitting. 

The hotel's main restaurant, Trenasse, features Gulf Coast cuisine with plenty of fresh seafood and steaks; the Times-Picayune says the restaurant "dishes up comfort with confidence." The St. Charles streetcar runs right in front of the hotel. The French Quarter's jazz clubs, restaurants and bars are a couple of blocks west; you can walk over to Bourbon Street in less than 10 minutes.

Great location, rarely had to wait more than a minute or two on the elevator.

I was in a rush to check out and get to the train station, and I left my white sweater on the white bedspread. I checked out at 5:55 am, and during the cab ride I realized what I had done. I called at 6:15, spoke with security and told them I'd called back the next day to make arrangements to have my sweater sent to me. When I called back they told me that the sweater wasn't in the room. I realize this was my fault, but I am very disappointed that the sweater "disappeared" from my room. Wouldn't stay here again, simply from a matter of trust.

This hotel provided poor experience on top of poor experience. Upon check-in they had the wrong arrival/departure dates (despite the email confirmation I received with the correct dates). Instead of being apologetic about the system glitch, the man at check in was very rude and continued to blame TravelZoo for the mistake then told me to call and figure out the issue while waving me to the side. Eventually (1 hour later) I was able to get TravelZoo and Intercontinental to agree on dates and allow check-in. After getting to the room, there were several things missing (only 1 drinking glass despite placeholder for 2 glasses, Keurig but no coffee pods, no room service menu). After calling guest services to get these items, it took over an hour to receive. Later we needed limes for cocktails, that also took more than an hour so we decided to go down to the bar to get them ourselves. The next day our room wasn't cleaned when we returned to the hotel at 4pm, when notifying the front desk they said they weren't properly staffed at that time and we would need to wait until the next day for cleaning. While getting ready to go out we decided to order room service (and glasses because they were never replaced), it took 45 minutes to get a cheese board and chips/salsa and our glasses never arrived. Overall, not much went right in regards to the hotel or it's staff. Luckily it was walking distance to most attractions and we didn't let it ruin the rest of our trip.
