This is a nice hotel...but very pricey for its location and proximity to NOLA Attractions. See full review

Business Trip

Had a great stay for a recent business trip. Everything was closer than we thought and the hotel was comfortable. The conference rooms were freezing, but otherwise a good experience.

Great Business Trip!

Arrived very late but was greeted warmly and was too happy to valet and get help with luggage! Even security was friendly! Clean room, comfy beds, great view, delicious buffet and wonderful people made this an awesome business trip! WiFi should be complimentary though.

Great location

Great location but if you're parking, the parking rate is really high. You can park at the parking lot next door for less.

Elevator noise ruined our stay

I need a roll-in shower and apparently the Hilton thinks that guests with that requirement are also deaf. The elevators were on the other side of the wall where the head of the bed was. All day and all night, we heard the noise from the elevators, making it impossible to rest. It ruined our stay! Otherwise the room was comfortable.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

For a fabulous dining experience, you can't beat The Bombay Club at the Prince Conti Hotel on Conti Street. This is the best kept secret in New Orleans! Great drinks from the bar, fantastic food and superb service. We enjoyed it greatly!

Good for a business trip.

Was in town for a conference. It was clean, in a decent location, and most necessities could be acquired on-site.

Not a great stay

Honestly, I was at this location for proximity to the convention center which is adequate, but there are several other close hotels. The walls are paper thin, and I was awoken every night by neighbors coming in even later than I and details of their condition. The door was about 2 inches off the ground, so the room was never dark at night and I had to get extra towels to cover the gap. Once the hotel emptied after the weekend, they started working right on the windows with really loud equipment, but I was one of the only occupied rooms and only had one night to go, so moving was a hassle before an early flight. Not much to say other than a really ordinary room and experience otherwise.

I' d do it again.

Great attentive and helpful staff. Close to all forms of ground transport; walking distance to great venues. Take advantage of streetcars and day-passes for them.

Look for non descript locations for great food. Breakfast is hard to find, so take energy packs with you.
