Review: Oct. 26, 2005 For the price, this place is a joke. First of all, the hotel provides each room with single ply toilet paper. What kind of hotel does this? As I entered the bathroom, it smelled like terrible body odor. The bathtub had rust stains in it and the tissues were soaking wet for some reason. The tv got only 6 stations and the valet parking could not accomidate my SUV in their lot. For dinner the pasta special was out by 7:30 and when I ordered my pumpkin pie for dessert...it was $6.00! If you have other options, use them because this place is not worth your money.
Review: Oct. 12nd, 2005 I'll start with the good - the staff. They were very apologetic about the condition of this hotel. There was nothing they could do about it, except apologize and take the brunt of complaints. Hopefully, they are all looking for new jobs!
There isn't enough room to write about how horrible the Ponchartrain Hotel is. It is a historical landmark and it is a shame that it is in such disrepair. Our room had mold in the bathroom, sheets of wallpaper falling off the walls, carpet & bedspread that hadn't been cleaned since they opened. The escalator was out of order and the elevators worked occasionally (we were on the 28th floor). We were told they will soon be under the Sheraton flag and will be doing renovations. But until that happens, if it happens, do not stay here.
