On-site casino is nonsmoking
Limited on-site amenities (no spa or pool)

Harrah's real bread and butter is the casino floor, not the hotel rooms. Still, travelers find that this Mississippi Riverfront hotel does an excellent job of making you feel at home while you take your chances at the slots and tables. The rooms are large, the staff is quick to respond to the needs of guests, and because you're in such a prime spot, you can easily walk to the French Quarter's best-loved sites or to the Central Business District. This hotel can be bustling, so you might want to stay someplace else if you value your sleep.
