With two separate buildings the hotel offers 20 executive king rooms, which are spacious for the business traveler. Highspeed Internet access is available along with wireless in the main building. Pale blue walls and dark carpets provide a calming color scheme that works with the floral bedspreads.
I also took a peek into a handicap-friendly room in the standard building. Here the room itself was smaller but the doorway leading to the bathroom was wide so as to easily accommodate a wheelchair. There were also metal safety railings in the tub.
Extra nice features:This Ramada has a super friendly staff who seem enthuisiastic about working there. With free parking and a frequent shuttle into New Orleans, this would be a great place to save a few bucks if you have to park a car. There's also a complimentary breakfast each morning. A business center provides all the basics. An outdoor pool and a workout facility with cardio equipment help to make a stay more comfortable. Kids were playing chess downstairs in a sitting room. The entire property is clean and well maintained.
Traveler's Tip: A nice, large mall is within walking distance of the Ramada. I took an afternoon to get a facial at Aveda and a haircut. In the mall you'll find stores like Coach, Old Navy, and Gap. If you want a beignet, there's even a Cafe Du Monde.
