Fun break from the parades

It was enjoyable to play a few slots and take a break from the parades and sight seeing. It is not Las Vegas, but still an enjoyable diversion.

You don't have to gamble to enjoy this establishment. Just to walk around a view all the decor is worth a stop.

Stopped by so my wife could loose some money before we could see some of the sites of NO. Compared to Atlantic City it did not impress me although it is very clean and nice. The workers were very friendly and attentive. Would go back again so my my wife could have a good time loosing more money.

Another great attraction in NOLA - the casino!! It is clean and NON-smoker friendly casino - NOT smoker-friendly...so if you smoke - you have to go outside - which is the reason we left. Other than that....gambling was fun!

I don't know how Las Vegas is NOW but I was PLEASANTLY surprised to find the main Casino smoke free!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!! They did have an area for "smoking freely" - the reverse of MGM Las Vegas when we went - smoke free was confined to a smaller room area. The staff were VERY pleasant and MANY options from video, slots,... More

We enjoyed our visit there, but the table games and even the slots were a little higher than expected..we spent our money we allocated, plus a little more...I never got to the tables, maybe next time. The casino is clean and well maintained, considering the foot traffic it does get.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
