The resort is rated Four Diamond by AAA, and enjoys top rankings on all user review sites - rarely being rated less than "Excellent" even when 100's or 1,000's of individual reviews are taken into account. The resort sits right at the edge of the French Quarter and the Arts District and is a stone's throw from the river and Convention Center.

Some of the best dining in New Orleans can be found at Harrah's. The hotel has 450 rooms and suites as well as 47,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space that can be used for anything from a wedding or family gathering to a corporate retreat or convention. Dining opportunities range from quick bites at the Cafés On Canal (Starbucks, Fuddruckers, McAlister’s) to upscale venues such as The Steakhouse and Ruth’s Chris Steak House with plenty of casual options in between.

Of course you will come for the gambling too, and the 115,000 square foot casino packs in between 1,400 and 1,500 slots, and approximately 130 gaming tables, including a WSOP poker room with 20 live-action tables. The casino and poker room are open 24/7 as are many eateries, bars, and lounges.
