Harrah's New Orleans is a
casinolocated in New Orleans, Louisiananear the foot of Canal Street a block away from the Mississippi River. It is a 115,000 ft² casino with approximately 2,100 slot machines, over 90 table games and a pokerroom. There are several places to eat ranging from buffet style to fine dining. Since its opening in 1999 Harrah's has been renting nearby hotel rooms to accommodate its guests; currently, the newly-renovated 202-room Wyndham Riverfront Hotel is providing such accommodations. In order to avoid leasing rooms, the casino opened its own 27-story hotel tower with 450 rooms across the street from the casino on September 21, 2006 just days ahead of the New Orleans Saintsreturn to the Louisiana Superdome. It is the only land based private casino in the state by Louisiana law (there are other casinos in the state with their gambling facilities on floating boats).
The casino shut down in the wake of
Hurricane Katrinain 2005 but reopened in the midst of Mardi Grason February 17, 2006.
The location of the casino was most recently previously the site of the
Rivergate Convention Center. A short tunnel built as part of the cancelled Vieux Carré Riverfront Expresswayis used for valet parkingand for an entrance passing underneath Poydras Street.
