Shortly after we arrived we were off for a stroll through
the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. Our first stop was in a sleazy little

there for about ten minutes Karen pointed out that we had found ourselves in a
gay bar. We had a little, ...

... of clubs, it was a day to dance. I danced with a white woman about my age, danced even longer with a black woman about half my age, and danced again with some men somewhere in between. And with each swish of my hips, each rhythmic throw of my shoulders, my beads danced with me. And as visions of Ruth's dancing partnership visited and fled, I swayed my way, alone in a crowd, through the cold comforting rains of Mardi Gras.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Garden District - St. Charles Avenue New Orleans
Very Nice Hotel
My husband and I just returned from a weekend in New Orleans. This is our fourth trip to N.O., but first time staying in the Garden District and at Hampton Inn. I did a lot of research before choosing this hotel. Since we were also traveling with another couple, I wanted to find a nice hotel, away from the French Quarter/downtown area, due to the crowds from a festival in town this weekend.
Thanks to the tripadvisor reviews, this was perfect. Right in the Garden District on the St. Charles streetcar line, clean and quiet. It's a basic hotel, no bellman, no concierge, etc. However, clean and complimentary parking. We drove out to River Road to see the plantations. Then, parked the car and rode the streetcar to the French Quarter. (Parking downtown in costly and driving is almost a nuisance). The streetcar ride was about 2.5 miles, and a nice ride. If you want to be closer to the action of the FQ, and within walking distance to your hotel, you may want to pick another hotel. However, if you want easy access to the FQ, but a quick get away from the noise and crowds, stay in the lovely Garden District... at the Hampton Inn. The rates are reasonable, it's clean and quiet!
Nice hotel. Rooms small. Breakfast is good. Very convenient because the trolley runs in front of hotel which takes you into the French Quarter.
First Class Hotel for a cheap price, worth EVERY penny!
This Hampton Inn location is AWESOME! The staff is very, very, very helpful in the front desk and they try to give you the world of advice to enjoy your stay in New Orleans. The breakfast isn't no .50 cent breakfast it is more like a $6 dollar breakfast because they go all out and everyday they have Sausage, Eggs, Crossiants, Muffins, Bananas, Orange Juice... basically anything that a normal person would eat for breakfast and the breakfast is First Class. The maids are very friendly and they keep your room nice and clean and the bathrooms are clean as well. Also when you want to leave the hotel you notice by the front doors and across the street, they have streetcars that run every 15 minutes to Borubon Street and other areas of the city and I highly recommend that you use the streetcar as opposed to driving because in downtown New Orleans, like any other big city... it's tough to find parking and if you do find parking it tends to be in a parking lot where you have to pay the attendant to park so take the streetcar. St Charles Ave you will notice when you get to Hampton Inn is an UPSCALE neighbrood. The streetcar is $1.50/one way or $15.00/person for a three (3) day pass. You wouldn't think that New Orleans would specialize in "Mexican Food" but I live near Houston and down in Houston it's "Tex-Mex Country" in terms of Mexican restaurants and right next to the Hampton Inn on the left is the BEST Mexican food that I have EVER EATEN... HANDS DOWN, and also it is cheap and only about 10 steps from the hotel itself, that's how close it is. Another good thing about this Hotel is that the PARKING is FREE and "If it's free, it's for me". That also saves you money as oppose to staying at another hotel closer into downtown New Orleans and paying for Valet parking. All in All, I enjoyed my stay at Hampton Inn St Charles Ave, and you will too!
Stay Here--great advice from natives!!
While staying at a Hampton Inn in Foley, AL, I ran into some people from New Orleans. Since I planned to go to New Orleans the next day, they highly recommended this hotel. The desk clerk at the Foley Hampton made my reservation. It is reasonably priced, very clean, and in a great location. This is such a reliable chain. That said, each hotel has it's own character. The courtyard with the swimming pool is very New Orleans and, of course, the streetcars running out front just add to the whole experience. It's walking distance to Lafayette Cemetary, and all the mansions of the Garden District. Plus, the Superior Grill is right next door with Happy Hour Margaritas every Tues., Wed., and Thursday. Just got back to MN (May 29,2004) Loved my stay in New Orleans!
We chose this hotel based on the positive comments at Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The hotel was clean and attractive with friendly and helpful staff. Parking was convenient and free. The continental breakfast was above average. The pool is only a small lap pool but the surrounding courtyard is a pleasant place to relax and eat breakfast. And, the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever had at a chain hotel.
The St. Charles streetcar stops in front of the hotel and, with the opening of the new Canal streetcar line, will get you almost anywhere you would want to go. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
A Hidden Gem in the Garden District
The Hampton Inn Garden District (St. Charles Street) surpassed our expectations on every front. We were expecting a basic chain hotel, but what we experienced a hidden gem wrapped in a relatively new property.
The location, public rooms, accommodations, service and continental breakfast were outstanding. Having free parking and easy access to the St. Charles street car right outside the front door were added benefits. We will definitely be recommending this property to our friends.
Hampton Inn is Always Great!
Stayed at the Hampton Inn on St. Charles for a few nights in February of 2002. The hotel is located right on the St. Charles streetcar line, a few miles out of the French Quarter toward Loyola and Tulane. Out the back door of the hotel is Prytania. The location is perfect. A streetcar ride through the beautiful garden district is all it takes to get to the Quarter. Not going to say much about the hotel - it was nice, clean, friendly, etc. - like all Hampton Inns. Two notable things - as people used to New York City cab rides and their posted rates, we were horrifed to pay $20 + $$$ for our luggage for a 2 mile or so cab ride to the port - as people used to New York City hotel rates for checking your luggage, we were pleasantly surprised that our luggage was checked for no charge!
Positive experience at the Hampton-always!
On the airport van ride thru New Orleans at 11:30 pm on the way to our hotel, my hubby and I heaved a sigh of relief as we listened to Harleys roaring and setting off car alarms(there was a motorcycle rally in town for the weekend). We were so glad that our hotel was away from the City a bit in the Garden District. The Hampton Inn on St Charles was so elegant and accomodating! The streetcar ran right in front of the hotel and it was easy to get a day pass to ride any public transport in the city. Ride the Nanchez Riverboat for a relaxing afternoon and make sure to visit the rotating lounge on top of the World Trade Center!! It was a nice refresher before hitting the Quarter for dinner and partying!
Nice place to stay in the Garden Dist.
Stayed at the Hampton-StCharles Feb7-9, 2003. This was a before cruise hotel for us. We spent Friday and Saturday here before a Sunday departure on the Carnival Conquest. The hotel is clean the staff personable. We enjoyed the complimentry continental breakfast in the mornings. It is very convient with the street car just outside the door. We did not rent a car and found we really didn't need one. The Garden dist is BEAUTIFUL. We would stay here again.
Great Chain Hotel!!
The Hampton Inn Garden District was more than I expected. It blends in well with the surroundings. The rooms are above average! They have a relaxing juice and cheese reception in the afternoon. The staff was excellent. Do NOT stay in the French Quarter, stay HERE. Parking is on site and FREE. The streetcar stops in front of the hotel and can wisk you to the French Quarter. Restaurants such as Commanders Palace, Emeril's Delmonico, Copelands's, etc. are all nearby.
