Hilton New Orleans Riverside in New Orleans is a high-rise hotel, which boasts contemporary styling with a little Cajun flair. As you navigate around the British Plaza traffic circle and stop near the lobby, you'll be greeted by native palm trees and other tropical plants. Surrounded by loungers and chaises, two outdoor swimming pools are open on a seasonal basis. With golden and neon blue colors schemes in the lobby, the interior design theme combines elements of the jazz culture that permeates throughout New Orleans.

Location
The Hilton New Orleans Riverside is within walking distance of the French Quarter, the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas and the Convention Center. The hotel also marks the edge of the New Orleans Arts District, a cultured part of town where art galleries, museums and shops sit side by side; travelers can also visit the WWII Museum, the Louisiana Children's Museum and the Contemporary Arts Center here. Immerse yourself in the creative ambience with guided art walks, which take place on the first Saturday of every month.
Highlights

With a prime location in downtown New Orleans, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside is a short walk away from the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and Lafayette Square. You also have convenient access to the beautiful promenades along the Mississippi River. The Podyras Station along the riverfront streetcar line is literally located only steps away from the hotel's lobby. With more than 90,000 square feet, the on-site Health Club offers more than enough space for you to stretch out and exercise.

After sweating it out in the hotel's fitness center, satisfy your hunger with some fried catfish at Drago’s Seafood Restaurant. Light pastries and other sweet treats are available at the Le Croissant and River Blends Cafe. If you're in the mood for drinking some fine spirits late in the evening, order cool cocktails at the Spirits Bar.

Policies
Upper-level floors and spacious outdoor decks with ample seating give guests clear views of the rolling Mississippi River.

A line of taxis can usually be found on Poydras Street, in front of the hotel.

For the Wedding

I needed a hotel to attend my niece's wedding in New Orleans. The wedding took place on Royal Street. So, it was walking distance to get to the wedding.

Good for central location at convention but be prepared to pay more than list price

The hotel amenities are adequate and location is very good for access to Harrah's, French Quarter, and short walk to Convention Center, but they tend to nickel and dime you on internet, parking, gym, etc. The room cost is deceptive because of the aggressive a la carte pricing.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Get reservations at any restaurant well in advance of your trip because any event or meeting or any size will make walk-ins at local eateries very difficult, especially if there are more than 1 or 2 people in your party

Great location clean

We went for the Final Four. Perfect location at the end of Poydras. Far enough from the French quarter that it was quiet, but still can walk there in 20 mins. Across the street from Harra's, gamblers beware! Clean rooms and good service, though not much room beyond the 2 queen beds - a little challenging for 4 guys to share. Hard to comment on value because room prices are jacked up for the Final Four weekend.

Family Fun

Everything was very nice at the hotel. We enjoyed our stay. The only complaint I have is that the parking was not included with our room. That seemed a little greedy to me.
