There's an episode of The Simpsons where Bart stumbles upon a real estate auction and ends up buying a building for $1. This is that building!!
Yes, there is so much to do in New Orleans that you won't be in your room a lot, however, if you are like me, when you ARE in your room you want to be comfortable. Well you will not be comfortable here. I didn't even go into the room all the way when I turned around and told my husband that I could not stay there. We were refunded our money and immediately left the premises. Yuk!
There's absolutely nothing grand about this hotel other than it's amazing that the hotel has not been demolished by an investor who's willing to take a chance on the value of the land.
If anyone has ever seen the beginning of Terminator where the cyborgs have demolished Earth - this is what the New Orleans Grand Palace looks like.
It's filthy and smells musty. The staff were ok but a few times I wondered if they needed some caffeine to wake up. The Indian man at the desk was wearing a suite that hadn't seen a drycleaner in at least 12 months and was constantly on his cell phone.
Elevators don't work so you get a discount price to walk up the stairs to your room. Let me tell you...that was great - walking in the stairwell of the Bates Motel. There are no phones in the rooms. Some of the locks on the room doors were broken - room doors wide open. People (vagrants) roaming the halls.
I thought I heard someone say the top 3-4 floors were completely vacant.
This has to be the only true 1 star hotel in New Orleans. You could get just a good night's rest sleeping in your car or on the trolley looping around the city.
The owners of this hotel, the Indian man and family, are scammers. This place is a dump. For the average college kids who come down to party at Mardi Gras, it'll do. Other than that, if you value your life, don't stay here.
Unless you want to pretend you are in the Shining, do not stay here. It may seem cheap but the 10 dollar difference between this hotel and its neighbours nearer the river is not worth it. honestly, no water no electricity, not cleaned for months, no sheets their was mouldy food in the fridge and the place had an infestation. I hope they can improve it as it could be a nice place to stay with a fair location, but at the moment most websites list it as closed due to katrina, I just wish i'd realised that before booking it and having to leave, loosing my booking deposit.
It could be fun if you are a huge group of 18-30s wanting to get seriously messed up and not caring where you pass out, maybe even cool what with the unlit hallways etc, could be the set of a new teen horror, even this suggests that you may not make it out alive.
pay the little bit more and stay somewhere safe, thats my advice.
Not a bad place...Best price in town...When you are in New orleans...You do not sleep and stay in the rooms people...Take a shower and get dressed, all I did. No time to sleep in New Orleans. Place was all right, some bad stains and etc. However I am alive, people were friendly over there, and I will return there no matter what.
Why is there not a law stating that the name of your establishment has to be an accurate description of the building?
Calling this place a hotel is an absolute joke. I wouldn't even call this place a crack house. All the people who hace posted reviews that say its worth yout $5 bucks must be "hotel" workers using the "high-speed" internet in the lobby. And even they won't give it above 2 stars...
Here are reasons to stay away
- Water didnt work....at all. We didnt even get dirty water or black "goo" like the other lucky guests
-Air conditioning didnt work...at all.
-No towels...not like we needed them.
-TV didt work.
-Windows wouldnt close, so it sounded like we were sleeping under the highway.(remember this for later)
-Lights in hallway flickered. I seriously didnt think i would survive through the night, so I didnt even sleep.
-Most of the floors are completely blocked off.
-Staff was useless and rude
-I could list more things but I am getting tired of typing. Dont' stay here, there is not one good thing, if you just need a place to crash and dont have a lot of money, just sleep on the street, its the same thing and a lot cheaper...
This is BY FAR the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in. The cords for the TV were cut and the phone and lights did not work. The sink did not turn on and the tub did not drain. There were no sheets on the bed, just a dust cover in its place. You could feel the springs in the mattress. We were offered a new room which was worse. It had all of the same problems and the water was coming out brown. We tried getting the manager on the phone but he kept hanging up on us. This was in May '05.
The hotel was dark and had an odor. The 7th floor seemed to be the only operational floor in the hotel. The television had cable but the picture was fuzzy. The staff was not friendly at all. If you are looking for someplace just to lay your head its ok.
awful cleaning and breakfast. the gym :-(
the people at the counter :-)
entrencedoor to the hotel was broken, anyone could enter anytime.
luggage room didnt exist.
very good hotel-prices.
near the inner city.
if you have a small wallet you stay at the grand palace.
This hotel looks as though it was ONCE a very nice place to stay. With ONCE being the key word, NOW it is a DUMP!! The first room we were in had black "stuff" spewing up from the bathroom floor drain, paint chips all over floor, windows very dirty, looked like a dried blood stain on sheet, furniture not dusted, and hard driedup wad of gum was stuck to the wall. (Until I told them black stuff was spewing out of the drain, they were not going to change our room.) Room 2 was a little cleaner. However, service was the pits. Called for an iron, light bulb, and face cloths & towels (only one towel was in room); however, we never receivedd any of these items. A man was stuck in one of the elevators for at least 10 minutes. Lots of exercising equipment displayed in exercise room, but all pieces were damaged/not working.
FYI!!!!- Everything bad that's said about this hotel is true!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
I personally disliked everything about this hotel. It took an hour or more to check in. Do not pay any attention to the pictures you see online, I believe the pictures were taken elsewhere. Anyway, on our way to the elevators, we saw a dead roach in the lobby, right infront of the front desk. Then we got on the elevator which was a nightmare, the carpet and the elevator itself was very filthy, I couldn't believe I actually rode on it. We then get to our room which was on the 7th floor. It was a mess!!!! The beds were made, I'll give them that, but we saw bugs in the neatly made bed. If we saw bugs in the bed, only God knows what was underneath it. The bathroom is not even worh talking about. Needless to say, I stayed for a couple of hours, enough time to find another hotel and nicely walked out. Keep in mind that they already took out a "reservation" fee from my card, and of course would not give me my money back. They had the worst customer service EVER! We asked for clean towels (towels were not in our rooms) and the so called "manager" told us to come downstairs and get it, we did, lets just say that the towels looked like rags, I don't think they've ever heard of BLEACH before.
All in all, I've been having nightmares ever since I left the New Orleans Grand Palace Hotel. I get sick just thinking about it, Thank God we were able to find another hotel, although it was 10mins away from the French Quarter, and cheaper, I would rather stay far away and clean, than to stay at that NASTY hotel. New Orleans itself was a blast, but never do I ever want to see that hotel again. It needs to be shut down, I know it's under construction and all, but I really don't think it should be opened up until everything is done, hopefully by a completely new, smarter and cleaner staff.
