Recently renovated hotel has a great location along St. Charles streetcar line
Recent guests thought the breakfast and parking fees were high
You'll need to book this hotel at least a month in advance if you want to visit New Orleans for Mardi Gras. And book it you should, since the extra popular parade passes right by the InterContinental's front doors on St. Charles Avenue. However, you'll probably see more business travelers lodging here throughout the rest of the year, because this hotel prefers to wow you with basic luxuries rather than hip, over-the-top styling. The property underwent a full renovation in 2014 and guest rooms are now outfitted with work desks and flat-screen TVs. Recent guests were fans of the updated accommodations, outdoor pool and the friendly customer service, though others thought the breakfast and parking fees were a tad pricey.

Critic Reviews



Though it looks like a modern office building from the outside, this large hotel close to everything has simple, elegant decor throughout, and professional, accommodating staff. A recently renovated lobby provides comfortable lounging, dining and drinking, and spacious rooms have sweeping views of the city.



This luxury hotel is on the St. Charles streetcar line and its downtown location is far enough from the congested French Quarter yet close enough to enjoy its charms.
