Harrahs is a small casino compared to Vegas, but very well done. Very polite staff and a good facility. Timely with drinks and good, easy access to cashiers and change machines. Good diversity of tables and slots.More

The casino was very nice. The smoking section was located outside and was limited on slots. Overall it was a very good experience. We did not stay at the hotel as i was on company business and had rooms reserved elswhere by my company.

Below average. Not warm or welcoming. Limited selection of quality food. Dealers were great in most cases. Rest of team left lots to be desired. No reason to go. There was no energy in the casino. Save your time and money.More

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
