Clarion Inn Gretna (Louisiana) Reviews
I can't review much but this is my opinion Feb 13, 2010
I was hoping to make a more complete review about this hotel, but unfortunately I did not have the chance since I didn’t make it to sleep there. We had made the reservation through “bookit.com” and I was pretty confident it had made it through since they charged my bank account. However, I was very surprised and almost shocked when we arrived in the hotel and there was no confirmation under my name. Now, this was NOT the hotel’s fault, it was completely bookit.com’s fault, so I am not blaming them for that.
I also understand that it was Mardi Gras season and they didn’t have any room available, so there was nothing they could do. Their service was efficient, but not the most courteous (again, maybe because of the hectic of the event). One thing I can say about them is that they claim to be NEAR the French Quarter. They are not. They are in Gretna, across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter. If they consider this to be near the Quarter, then any hotel in New Orleans is, as simple as that. Their price is also quite expensive. You can get (during off-festival seasons) much better hotels in better zones of the city. We also had some problems finding their address with my GPS. At our first try it took us to a shanty town that looked kind of scary. We had to ask people to find where it was. As I said, the location is NOT good.
It’s a shame that I won’t be able to review the rest of the amenities of this hotel, but I don’t think I’ll give it a second chance.
