Great location, can't go wrong

Posted Feb 22, 2017
Pros: Location and Room Cleanliness
Cons: No Bellmen willing to help unload luggage or with check-in process (despite 4-5 standing around at any given time). Parking = Expensive
Location: Anything and Everything you want to do in NOLA
My wife, son and I stayed at the Hilton NOLA Riverside and had a good experience overall. Much of the hotel is updated / renovated and all of the facilities were clean / accommodating. The location is ideal for taking in all that NOLA has to offer. Aquarium, French Quarter, Casino, Bourbon Street, Mall, Riverwalk etc. A 10-min walk will pretty much get you anywhere you need to go. Parking is a bit expensive, and the hustle and bustle of the hotel / area made check-in a bit annoying but overall, this was a great stay.

The Hilton is a very nice spot. Very clean also in walking distance to food, shopping, strip, etc. I would definitely stay again. Other hotels in the area was a lot more pricey so I was thinking maybe the Hilton wasn't as nice but to my surprise it turned out to be very nice

Nice hotel, was walking distance to cruise ship

Posted Jan 9, 2017
Pros: We picked it for its location... close to the cruise ship terminal. The price was good too!!
Cons: Not anything for me that needed improvement. It fit all my needs
Location: Located in the warehouse district of New Orleans... so much to see. We hopped the trolley for $3 a day and went all over, Jackson Square... Bourbon St
The bed was very comfortable. They let us check in early and we were able to see the sights in New Orleans.

This hotel was great. The location was great as it was only a few minute walk to the French Quarter. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. They truly wanted us to have a great stay there. Our room was beautiful and very clean. We also had a beautiful view of the Mississippi which was great. There's a lot to do in the area of the hotel as well. Will definitely be returning.
