Rated 3 out of 5 by mbluecpa It's OK for a cheap airport stay
The hotel provided what I would consider adequate lodging a reasonable price. For my needs - a room to stay following a late night airport arrival - it generally filled the bill. The room was typical Four Points, a fairly compact but clean and comfortable king; the double/double rooms across the hall appeared more spacious.
Upon check-in, I asked for a late check-out and the front desk was only able to offer 1pm; I pushed for 2pm and the agent agreed to it. I and another guest both had problems with our room keys, explained by the front desk as faulty latches. I was given another room.
A logistic note that some may find important: the hotel is not truly an airport property as it's actually over three miles from MSY. The hotel's airport shuttle runs until 12:30am, so if arriving on one of the last 10-12 flights of the evening, you'll be directed to a cab which runs $20. Free parking for those with cars.

The staff is outstanding; however, the property needs a major face lift. I'm surprised it carries the SPG brand. Did I mention how great the staff was?

Rated 2 out of 5 Unbelievable!
Wow, where to start? For the most part the staff was very friendly and accommodating, they were doing the best they could with what they had to work with. This hotel is under construction from a small storm three months ago. They are obviously in no hurry to fix it! They don't tell you when you are making your reservation about the construction, they wait till after you have checked in and paid to tell you these things.The food in the restaurant was kind of pricey for what it was, but pretty good. The waiter was very friendly and personable. There is a make shift bar in the lobby which is no atmosphere to drink, but the young lady working it was doing the best she could with what she had. She made us the best hurricane drink! The staff was also very helpful with telling us places to visit in the city. The staff there is wonderful! I don't know if it's management,or a financial issue but it shouldn't take three months to fix a hotel. It's a disaster. The so called fitness center was outside. Plastic all over the floors,dust in the air,and the smell of paint! Like I said before,they give you no warning in advance,they wait till you have checked in! This hotel is a disaster. The only thing that made our stay bearable was the staff. I know I'm writing a long review, it's just that I'm shocked at the condition of this hotel! I know they have to be losing a lot of business because of this. So be warned! We may return if and when the hotel is fixed. Oh I almost forgot,this is the first hotel I have been to with no snack vending machines or commissary!

CHECKED IN WITH 4 BAGS AND A BABY AND GOT NO HELP FROM THE HOTEL TO MY ROOM. AFTER A CERTAIN TIME AT NIGHT THE STAFF ARE JUST LAZY. THEY DONT ANSWER THE PHONE AND WHEN THEY DID I ASKED FOR SOME BOTTLE WATER AND WAS TOLD THE HOTEL DID NOT HAVE ANY. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT. AFTER TELLING THEM I COULD NOT GO TO A VENDING MACHINE CAUSE THE BABY WAS SLEEPING THEY FINALLY BROUGHT THE WATER TO MY ROOM AND THEN CHARGED ME FOR IT.

Poor customer service!!! My organization was over charged, tremendously. Somehow, their paperwork wasn't adding up on the financial side so they decided to charge my organization's account in access of almost $5000. Called manager (Ste) no return, called controller (Quanta) no answer or return call, left message with Regional manager (Brent) twice, again no return call. Ive faxed the proper documents several times and nothing has been credited. Stay elsewhere, please.

I'll keep it simple. Staff just doesn't care about you or your stay. I wasn't greeted when I walked in and the gentleman (brandon) in the front desk seemed bothered I was checking in. I asked if I could take the shuttle to airport the next morning. He told me they no shuttle. They a gave me a coupon for a free beer. That night i tried to redeem it and they told me that the kegs weren't connect it and they couldn't give me anything. I don't understand why they gave me the ticket. They were also doing some repairs from the hurricane so every hour staff would knock on the door and bring in additional furniture and shove in my room I had two couches and two tv's. That night I walked by the night supervisor and comment on the beer, shuttle, service and room but he wasn't interested in hearing me and just said that it was out of his control. He cared less really! The next morning their was a new staff at the front so I asked again about the shuttle since the website states free aiport shuttle and she said yes we have a shuttle that can take you. I don't understand why the other staff would lie to me about the shuttle. Well that was the first time I redeemed my SPG points and this the worse experience I've had at a hotel and I travle a lot for work. Very dissappointed and Sheraton really needs todo something about the staff. Bad stay! Avoid this hotel if you can!
