Excellent hotel

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. I was impressed overall with the appearance of the hotel, the rooms, the professionalism and customer service of the staff. They were friendly and helpful in all capacities. Valet parking was excellent.

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant is very, very good =D. Stay away from Antoines, close to Bourbon Street. Comes recommended but service, quality of food and price is one of the worst places I've ever experienced.

Great Location, Great Service

The hotel was in a great location close to the trolley and French Quarter. It was clean and new inside. The downside was the confusion at the valet stand and Bell desk. To their defense there were a few huge weddings going on at the time. I would definately stay here again.

Pretty good

Everything was great (as expected from a Hilton hotel), until we got back from Jazzfest and found no shampoo in the bathroom. From such events you come back dirty so finding no proper toiletries was disappointing. But the lady at the front desk was fabulous!

Expected just a lot more

Very noisy, trains run next to hotel all night blow whistle at 1:00 am in morning and other late times. Walls are thin can here returning guest making all kind of noise returning from night on the town in late hours. Front desk has a too bad attitude. Parking very expensive.

Sleepless in New Orleans

There are train tracks that circle the hotel. The noise level is amazingly loud ( the tracks are within 10 feet of the hotel ). I especially appreciated the little tune the engineer played on his horn at the wee hours of the morning. NEVER AGAIN, I wonder how Paris would feel after a nights stay in this venue.
