Rated 1 out of 5 by REDLOB Front desk rude and always overwhelm
I was trying to check in and was giving the eyes Rollin at me twice by front desk agent. After 20 minutes of waiting I went to my room and of course key does not work.so (tranice) I think that was here name was still on the phone and I asked for another key and finally after 30 minutes of going up n down she just changed my room. I missed my lunch engagement I was try to surprise my mom whom I have not seen in a while.it was an awful stay.

The front desk staff at this hotel location is remarkable. I recently flew to New Orleans to experience Mardi Gra for the first time. I was welcomed by a warm hearted miss named Oletha who made my stay at the Sheraton pleasurable. I arrived a little earlier than the normal check in time and she was able to coordinate with her cleaning staff to make my room available, which I was truly appreciative for after a long flight in. In addition, I was also welcomed by a young gentleman named Terrence who made it his mission to make my stay in New Orleans at the Sheraton Metairie wonderful. He was able to articulate all the hotel amenities as well as provide me a listing of all the local attractions, parades and restaurants. Being new to the city, these two individuals went above and beyond their normal duties to make me feel welcomed and at home in New Orleans. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends, family and also my colleagues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NOLA1900 Good staff except for
Upon returning from a funeral late Saturday night I found out that there was no parking in the garage. I then asked the gentleman where I should park he said, "I don;t are. I guess on the street. You can move it later tonight." As it was 10:30pm I was not plaining on returning to the car the next day. I was told there was a special event that took all of the parking. I also was club level but not on the club level. My card did not work to open the evaluator to the club level. However when I approached the staff they immediately corrected the problem.Other than the parking the staff was outstanding, especially housekeeping!

The room and facility were very nice. The service and food at the restaurant in the evening were horrible.
The waitress took our order. After quite some time she came back to tell us there was only one tuna filet so I ordered a steak instead. While at the open kitchen (where everyone can see and hear everything) she argued with the kitchen staff about the food. Again, after a long wait she came back to the table to tell my guest that she could not provide the Tuna ordered as it had been damaged in cooking. By this time we had been there hungry and waiting for 2 hrs so he decided not to order and i ate and we left.

Stayed in this hotel with family over Thanksgiving. This hotel is pretty new and well maintained. Parking is free. Room is clean and comfy. Overall, the facilities met our expectation for Sheraton brand. The service, however , was absolutely below average. Front desk was not professional and not helpful. Had to ask him 3 times in order to get the passcode for the free wireless in the lobby. Didn't understand why he was so reluctant to provide that info.
The entrance to the hotel could be a bit difficult to find, even though the hotel is actually located very close to one of the major streets of the city.

SPG Status: Lifetime Gold
Date of Stay: April 2014
Length of Stay: 1 night
Arrival Day: Wednesday
Upgraded room- I was upgraded to a Club Level King at time of check-in. Our Club Level room was located on the 6th floor and was very spacious. The Club Lounge is located on the 7th floor. The Club Lounge provided evening hors d’oeuvres, dessert and morning breakfast (did not check out the breakfast offerings). There were about six different offerings in the evening with one hot offering. Beer was available for purchase at $4 while wine was $6. Included in the Club Level Room offerings are two complimentary bottles of water and free wifi.
Parking- Complimentary self-parking is available in the attached parking garage.
Cleanliness of room- The room and bath were spotless.
Water temperature & pressure- Self-explanatory.
Wifi- The wifi was a decent speed. Ping 31ms; Download 2.85Mbps; Upload 2.66Mbps.
Availability of electrical outlets- Three electrical outlets were available at the desk and two additional outlets are built into the side of the nightstand.
Lack of in-room safe- No in-room safe so no place to secure valuables, laptop, etc while not in room.
Overall, this was an excellent stay and I will definitely return to Sheraton Metairie - New Orleans Hotel if I should need a room in the Metairie area or if my travels have me flying out of MSY in the early morning hours.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BdayGirl13 Bad customer service
1. Poor customer service from the beginning to the end of my stay.
2. The 2 ladies at the registration desk did not want to acknowledge the rate that I received in an email for my birthday month and wouldn't honor it until I threatened to leave for another hotel.
3. The sleeping room was average and had huge nasty stains on the carpet.
4. The toilet in the gym flooded and water was standing on the 5th floor hallway.
5. I asked that my sheets be changed and the maintenance man brought the sheets to
my door and handed them to me and walked away so I had to change my own bed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by UnhappyCamper27 Not a great stay--3 hours of loud barking dogs
I was disappointed in this Sheraton Property. The guest down the hall had a couple of loud barking dogs in their room and after several phone calls to the front desk to speak with the rude nonchalant manager nothing could be done about the noise because the guest was not in the room and could not be contacted . Supposedly I could not move to another floor because the hotel was full. This barking went on for more than 3 hours. I left the hotel and came back and the dogs were still barking. I most likely should have called the police or the animal abuse hotline because the hotel staff was ill equipped to manage this situation. When I asked about the noise ordinance for the Parish , the manager had no clue what a noise ordinance was.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RollTide Affordable But Disappointing
We were pleased with the price but disappointed with the facility. Location is a good alternative to expensive downtown area, and parking is free. However, our room was old and outdated. The A/C panel fell to the floor as soon as we moved the floor lamp (which was apparently holding it up). One bed was missing a blanket, and there were no extra linens in the room. Only 2 sets of towels were in a room with 2 double beds. Multiple light bulbs were not working. Staff was responsive, but making numerous calls for assistance was very frustrating. Upon check out, 2 unauthorized charges were on room bill, and front desk attendent was rude in dealing with it.
First time I've ever said this about a Sheraton, but definitely not up to the standard we are used to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MM14 One Employee Made The Difference
The Duty Manager that was also responsible for Housekeeping etc made this stay go from not very good to acceptable. His efforts to address several service/system shortcomings were very much appreciated. We all make mistakes and it is how they are corrected that counts.
The facilities are good and the location is not too far from the French Quarter. Restaurants near the hotel are as good or better than on Bourbon and much easier to get seated. If you have a car or a group that can use a driver then this hotel is a good value.

Pro's: The room has been updated. Restaurant dinner was good.
Con's: The room smells bad. The concierge lounge is small and ill-equipped. Breakfast in the restaurant is too expensive, and awful. Front desk had no lint roller. Hotel invoice had a second page of complex legal terms. I was there for a convention - everyone needed transportation downtown, and the front desk seemed surprised every morning that people needed transportation - no pre-arranged cabs, and the hotel vans sat idle.

We stayed here in November 2011 before our cruise. It was a great value for the money. We had free parking for the 7 days we were gone. We had transportation to and from the cruise port and also dinner the night before our cruise. The staff was very friendly yet a little overwhelmed because there were 3 weddings taking place there as well. They gave us a free "cruise basket" before we left too. We liked the hotel so well that we are also booking again this year before our cruise.

This was a return stay for 3 nights for business in the city of New Orleans. It was convenient and far less expensive than the city. The hotel does not appear to have suites, none was offered and the SPG floor plan did not show any. The Club was very basic, breakfast especially, stretched to the limits often out of coffee. Easy parking & safe for your car. No obvious highlights, but no real negatives, either. Easy to airport as well.

Staff refused help with luggage and desk had reservations totally confused. Desk called second night and insisted that we had booked two rooms, again totally confused. Employee nearly ran us down in the parking garage after we checked out; he laughed about it and did not apologize although he scared my wife half to death. Very poorly managed hotel. Unsatisfactory attitude with the staff. Only the employees in the bar and grill were competent and polite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Traveler651 Awful service
Staff was clearly overwhelmed during our group visit. Rooms had insufficient towels upon arrival, housekeeping did not replace used items (Coffey, shampoos, etc), removed towels from rooms without replacing. Our group breakfast buffet that we were charged $15 pp for consisted of grits, bacon strips, and scrambled eggs, without coffee, tea, or bakewares, not even toast. We ordered breakfast bags to go on day of departure: the hotel forgot!

From the bartender, the waitress in the dining room, the shuttle driver that took us to the airport, all were courteous, polite and helpful. I would like to give kudos to Kristin, the young lady that checked us in on both of our visits. Both times, she was smiling, pleasant, had a wonderful attitude and went the extra mile to ensure that my family had a wonderful stay. Thank you so much!

This was my first stay in the metarie/new orleans area and the hotel was so nice. I had two rooms on the club level. I was there with my 3 sisters and we all loved the room the staff and the lady in charge of food at night was so welcoming and friendly and the food was soooo delicious. The rooms were very nice comfortable beds and the decor was very nice. Very happy with the entire stay! Cant wait to come back!

Disappointed with the cleanliness of the room -- during my stay, only the bed was made. The bathroom nor the room was cleaned. While the staff was initially friendly upon check-in, the remainder of the stay found the staff to be very inattentive and, at times, rude and short. Other than the convenient location to the airport, I would not recommend staying at this hotel. Very disappointing for a Starwood property.

My stay at the Sheraton Metairie was exactly what I needed, when I needed it, where I needed it. It was neither to far from Downtown New Orleans, nor to close to the noisy airport. Shopping and dinning were a stones throw away and the staff was professional in every regard. Their hospitality was the essence of what they call, "Lagniappe or, a Lil' something extra"!

This property is located in the Galleria district of the state and has wonderful access to all that you might need. Local dining, shopping and attractions. The staff is wonderful and so helpful. What did not work for me is to have to obtain an password everyday to access the internet from my room. There has to be a better way than that! Overall...Great Stay.

I got charged $14 for powdered eggs & greasy bacon buffet, which was complimentary with room last time I stayed in same hotel. The TV signal stayed scrambled most of the time and they have guards in place which make it impossible to tighten the coax cable to TV- or out of the wall. Bar service was questionable- food came out wrong & beer was the temp of bath water- and there was only 3 customers in the place at the time! Very disappointed.

We stayed here for 4 days in March and the hotel was beautiful. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The location was easy to find and near by to all the sights and tourists attractions. They are pet friendly and some of the staff went above and beyond to make our stay great. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Barb Housekeeping needs improvement.
As a business traveler that travels to this area every week I thought I would give the Sheraton a visit.
Things that were less than desirable.
1. No hairdryer. I had to go get one, the front desk was very nice.
2. When I went to shower, a dirty washcloth that was hanging on the curtain rod fell into the shower - yuck.
3. Leak under the sink, puddled water.
4. 1 soap - usually 2 in other hotels - couldn't tell if this is a standard for your hotel or all Sheraton's.
5. I left for business at 10:30 am after a conference call. I assume this is too late to have my room made up but on my last day, housekeeping made sure to check at 9:30 am to find out if I was ready to vacate room. Curious.
6. My room was across the entrance where housekeeping enters to gather their things but I assume that it was a one trick pony for getting room clean. The romm smelled like cheat carpet deoderizer when I checked in.
This is the 1st time I have had to write a review on ANY venue.

I booked a king room on points, and I got a double room and was charged. I had to call corporate customer service to get this matter resolved as the staff at this hotel had no clue. Essentially I was told that even though I booked a king bed, as an elite member, all I was guaranteed was a room and not the room type.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AW2016 This hotel has good service and the cost is reasonable.
Excellent customer service from the time you get there untill you leave. The breafast buffet has a little to be desired. The scrambled eggs are hard and the other items appear to be of low quality. My stay included the breakfast so I took advantage of the free meal. I didn;t stay there for the restaurant so it wasn't a factor in my decision for staying there. I've stayed at this hotel many times because of the friendly staff, clean rooms and reasonable rates.
