Doubletree by Hilton Hotel New Orleans
Travel Blogs from New Orleans
I woke up really early this morning and to spare Caroline my tossing and turning started working on this travelogue (or at lease yesterdays...). Eventually I grabbed a shower and then got a text that the guys had headed down to the pool. Already being clean I just brought the laptop down and continued my work while they took a dip. We decided to …
Shoulder soreness forced me from bed around 6:30am and I spent the next 3 hours organizing the last couple of days travels into something accurate and coherent. At about 9am I went up and awoke Wife and got us packed, on our way out the door to meet up with Jeff and Sue for brunch I knocked on Tyler and Polly's door, for the first time finding out …
Up again early I typed out at the pool until my battery died, took a swim and at 9:30 got everyone moving for breakfast at the hotel again. Being over tired of hard boiled eggs I broke down and had the omelet and it really hit the spot. Ayana was at the front desk and on our way out the door at 11 I was able to deliver her sugary coffee drinks. …

... thinking of food and a cafe to read and write. I pass by a gallery store and back track to check it out, what a find, rare lithograph prints by the likes of joan miro and dali, even a toulouse loutrec stood beside the washroom door. The girl working there was eager to make conversation, which at first i was not feeling because i wanted to look and focus on the prints. However halfway through the gallery, it was clear that she was bored and envious of the freedom of ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsDoubletree by Hilton Hotel New Orleans
Ayana is wonderful. She took such good care of us and the hotel was in the perfect location. I did get tired of eating hard-boiled eggs every day since they were the only protein option on the continental breakfast each morning but at least my wife could have cereal and fruit and she was satiated with that. She did want me to say that Don made her laugh by giving me grief.... Thanks for making her morning...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton Hotel New Orleans
Great location, stellar price
This is a decent hotel in a great location near everything you might want -- easy trolley access to anything out of walking distance. To find the best rates here, the trick is to go through the Harrah's web site. They are a partner hotel with the casino. Try the hot deals section of the New Orleans Harrah's and a calendar for the next several months will pop up with room prices. There are many $39 nights available from December through February. I don't know about you, but since that's cheaper than the average Holiday Inn Express, I will definitely be returning. Really. the point of going to New Orleans isn't to stay in your room, anyway!
What a DUMP!!!!
The room I was given had twop connecting rooms. The first night I was in house My neighbors snoring woke me up at 2:00 am the night manager offered NO assistans saying they were sold out. I was there for 8 nights. On thethird night of my stay a Saturday the ball room on the 18th floor was hosting a home comming dance for a local high school the music was so loud I heard it on the 13th floor there was no noise restriction this went on unti 12:oo mid night.
Good hotel in a great location
The best part of this hotel is the location. It is within walking distance of the convention center and across the street from the French Quarter. The staff was friendly and efficient during my stay. The two rooms that I saw were clean and well appointed. The room with two double beds was bigger than the room with a queen bed. The valet parking service handled my car efficiently, although the price was high ($25/night). The attentiveness of the restaurant staff was below average. I would not hesitate to stay again at this hotel. It delivered good hospitality in a great location.
Great STay- GReat Value!
My new Hubby and I just got back from eloping in New Orleans. We got a great rate at this hotel and were thinking we would get what we paid for. Oh, not so! The room was great, clean, it didn't smell, the pillows and bed linens were clean and comfortable. the parking was 25 bucks a night, but the valet service was perhaps the nicest part of the experience. The location was great, right next to the casino, and just a few blocks from the action. If you want a nice, quiet relaxing stay, this is a good place to try.
We did during our stay see a few ladies reaming the bellboy because there room stinks, but I think they'd complain about the clouds in heaven. We will be staying here again.
Doubletree Hotel - Nice place for families
The Doubletree Hotel on Canal Street is a great place for anyone to stay. If you have children, you will also feel comfortable bringing them with you. You are welcomed with a "Doubletree Cookie" when you check in, and the rooms are a nice size. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet that is far from being "continental". It is near all the major New Orleans attractions and restaurants. The parking fee for the valet service is worth it, and if you don't mind doing a little walking, you probably don't even have to use your car for the entire trip. I will definitely stay here again.
Flush, Flush, Flush
What an awful hotel!!
When the say check-in at 3:00 pm, they mean 3:00 pm not 2:59 pm.
One of the smallest rooms and bathrooms I've ever seen. Trust me, I've been to Tokyo and this hotel is competing to make the room small!
I heard toilets from three floors above me flushing all night long. The walls must be made out of paper.
The room did not get cleaned until 5:00 pm and I had to request the room to get cleaned at that time.
Don't stay there!
Don't stay at the Doubletree
We stayed 2 nights at the Doubletree July 6 & 7 and I must say it was not at all what we expected. The room was very small; the bathroom was so small you could barely close the door while you were in there without stubbing a toe. The bathroom counter was so low (extra-low!) we had to bend way over to use the sink. But the worst part was that Housekeeping did not even clean our room, even when we called the front desk. We had to call several times and then all we could get was a few clean towels. Also the breakfast buffet was WAY overpriced. We don't be staying there again.We still love New Orleans, though. We'll find a better place to stay next time.
Bad Bad Bad
I stayed at this hotel during the week of June 23rd, 2003 and was very disappointed! I can't believe Doubletree lets them fly their flag. The rooms were gross and the furniture old. The bathrooms reminded me of my collage dorm bathrooms. Oh did I mention the stank smell in the hallways? I would avoid this hotel for sure.
Well below Doubletree standard
Possibly the best location in all New Orleans, but well below standard of Doubletree brand, especially in tired decor and general low-end look and feel. Staff was outstanding, could not have been better. Restaurant a real disappointment. Housekeeping is sloppy, one day I came back to two pillows on bed with no pillowcases, when I called Housekeeping, I had two handed to me at the door and maid turned and walked away. This looks like an old Holiday or Ramada Inn with the Doubletree sign on it.
Good location but disappointing housekeepingservices
It is conveniently located on Canal Street and the environment is quiet and nice. You will be first impressed by the warm chocolate cookies.
The room is clean but quite small. The housekeeping service is disappointing. First, we found a pillow cover on the floor on the first day. Second, when we took the bath, we saw that shower curtain was off the hook. Besides, the housekeeper forgot to give us a plastic bag for the ice bucket, etc.
Nevertheless, if you don't expect that it is a hotel, then you should be satisfied.
