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.

... said to him "oh you can tell your new German friends that you came to New Orleans" - his reply was "they'll be like 'what's new Orleans' they'll have no idea what it is' Americans can be stupid. Anyway we tried gumbo, sangria, muffuletta, po' boy brisket sandwich, praline (with pecans not almonds - incredible), sorbet, taffy and spices. We also got to walk around and learn some history, see some famous places and meet some lovely people. One shop we ...
... some locals. They essentially told us that Bourbon st is great fun, but you're better off to spend one night there and get it out of your system. The consensus from the locals was that bourbon st has changed quite a lot and is too commercialised now with tourist attractions. It used to be great blues/jazz and local art and a lot quiter. Then someone came along and introduced numerous strip clubs and daiquiri bars at every corner.
So that's what we did, we spent ...
... in these crypts, as they would embalm a deceased, let him/her cook in the crypt for 12 months and 1 day, baking them through the Louisiana summer, and then pull them out, crush the remains with a 'mallet' he said, and then, using a pole, push the remains to the back of the crypt where there was a shaft they would fall down into. And the crypt is ready for the next family member. He also said that was where the terms 'wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot pole', and 'getting shafted' ...

Many restaurants take bookings a year in advance and are already full before our plans are set. Lynn is not one to be put off though. She worked the phones and had us on wait lists so that we have reservations at some of the best restaurants for each night we’re in town. So our days are taken up with exploring the French Quarter and Garden District, checking ...
