Have not been in New Orleans in about 10 years maybe so we decided to come and see how the city is faring after Katrina 5 years ago. We decided to take a tour and chose the one called "The Rebirth" which basically drives you around to see what is new, what is still in need of being torn down, and what has been rebuilt. There is also a lot of …
It's always interesting to run across "characters", people who have a story or ARE a story. We briefly touch their lives, hear a bit of something interesting or see a bit of something unusual and then move on. New Orleans always has characters in abundance. Some of them are performing on the street corners, some of them are working in the shops, …
Did a tour today out to some plantations. Our bus driver was giving us comentary on the 1 hour ride out of New Orleans to the plantations. She started talking about the petrochemical industry and if she had not mentioned petrochemical, I would not have understood what she was talking about. She was mentioning Shell and Conoco as big companies in …
A tour day to go see a couple of the plantations in the area. We chose to go see Laura Plantation and Oak Valley Plantation. They are close to each other but about an hour out of New Orleans. The ride out of town is punctuated with commentary from out bus driver and most of it is understandable even with her pronunciation of "earl" for oil. We are …
We have done haunted tours and ghost tours in many different cities in the U.S. and in Europe. Whenever we see that there is a haunted tour of some sort, we try to take it because the tours are always insightful into a city's past and usually quite interesting. There are several tours offered here but we chose the haunted history tour. It was to …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn New Orleans French Quarter/Cbd
You Will Love Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn
This hotel went above and beyond our expectations! Great location just a couple of blocks from Bourbon St., Canal and Royal. Great roof top views of the city also a great place to spend a down day by the pool. The staff was friendly. The rooms were very large and very clean. We were able to book on the Hilton web site for an amazing $59 a night. We plan on staying at this hotel on our next visit to New Orleans!
This hotel was AWESOME! The location was great. It was only a few blocks from Bourbon St and within walking distance from the express bus stop to/from the airport.
The rooms were big and clean. The hotel had a business center (awesome perk - I printed our boarding passes out there), as well as a fitness center and pool. The pool was tiny, but we weren't there to go swimming anyway.
We arrived much earlier than our check-in time and they were able to accomodate us right away.
I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It was a really good bang for the buck. I would stay here again without any hesitation.
Great Place - Highly Recommended !!
We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for a week and couldn't have been more happier with our stay - if anything it exceeded our expectations. The rooms were clean and the service was excellent.
Within minutes you can walk to Canal Street, Bourbon Street, the banks of the Mississippi River - it is the perfect location and on a very quiet street.
It would have been nice if the pool (located on the top of the hotel on the 18th floor) had been a hot-tub. After a long day of walking/touring it would have been nice to relax. The pool is nice but the deepest part of it is 4ft.
By booking on the Hilton website directly we were able to get a rate of $79 per night.
Hilton Garden Inn Trip Report 3/12-3/14
We stayed at the HGI French Qtr. on Gravier Street. We had an excellent stay and one of our best stays at the Hilton family hotels. The hotel was very clean and modern I sent an email a week before the date stating that it will be our 1 year anniversary, got a reply back saying that there is a convention during that time and will try to upgrade us. When we arrived the manager gave us our HH gold perks (breakfast for 2, pantry coupon, bottled water), 2 glasses and bottle of wine. We were put in a large corner room with 2 TV's, separate seating area with tons of large windows. Paid the rate of 119.00 per night
The hotel is in an excellent area, just a 5 min walk to Canal Street and Bourbon Street.
The streetcar stop is around the corner. There is a Japanese restaurant, little corner store, and bagel café right across the street.
Great Hotel/Great Location
This was an above average hotel in a great location. It is located about a block and a half away from Bourbon Street. The room was clean and hospitable. The large rooms also had a microwave and fridge in every room. It also has great views from their rooftop pool. It also a great place to sit back and drink a couple of cold beverages. As far as parking goes. If you want to save a few bucks, park at the casino, and play for 30 minutes with your players card, and get to park for free. I played everyday for a couple of hours, but all I had to do was get my parking ticket stamped, and as long as I didn't leave the garage I parked for free the entire weekend. (It saved me about $60)
A perfect place to stay
I had originally made reservations this year at a different hotel in New Orleans this year for Mardi Gras but upon checking in we had some problems with the place and the rooms there so we decided to look elsewhere. We ended up getting a room here for the week and could not have been happier. Our room was clean and well furnished including a microwave, mini fridge, and truly high-speed acces to the net. The pool area on the top floor is the best spot we found for photography in New Orleans. You can see Canal St., all of Bourbon St., and the river from the 18th floor roof pool. The pool was also open during our entire stay and very very warm even in the cold of night. It took us less than five minutes to walk to bourbon st. and even less time to get to the parades although we chose to watch alot of them from the top of the hotel because the view was better than trying to fight through tens of thousands of people for a spot on Canal St. Although we did that too. The rate was excellent and the service was great. My only complaint with the entire experience was that the housekeeping people woke me up knocking around 11 am every morning (which is early after a late Mardi Gras night) even though my do not disturb sign was out. But this was tolerable because everything else in and about the hotel far exceeded my expectations. I will definately be back there for mardi gras' to come and anytime I find myself in New Orleans. 100% Top Notch!!!
My new place to stay in N.O.
I just returned from a trip in New Orleans - duing the week prior to Mardi Gras. I was in town mostly for the parades and a little work. The Hilton Garden Inn gives great access to the French Quarter and St. Charles, and the parades go by about 2 blocks away from the hotel. As for work - the access to the highway is only a few blocks away as well, so this is the perfect location for both work and partying
The room was fantastic - large, clean and comforable. The room i stayed in did not have a view, but the plan wasn't to stay in the room anyway. The room also had a separate seating area. The hotel was extremely quiet, even during the craziest time in N.O.
I have recommended this hotel to others that I work with, and this is their new favorite as well!
I have stayed at Hilton Garden Inns around the country, and this is the BEST one i have found.
Great Location for Mardi Gras
This hotel has a great location! You are within two blocks of the French Quarter at Bourbon Street, but out of the quarter so you can easily access your hotel. Surprisingly, if you have a hotel on Canal St., like the Ritz Carlton, when the parades are running you are going to have to haul your luggage through the crowds into the hotel.
This hotel is brand new. The rooms are a typical Hilton Garden Inn--nice, but not luxurious. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was okay--but would only recommend it if you want the convenience of eating in the hotel. Restaurant not open at night. Bagel shop directly across the street.
We would definitely stay there again.
Good location, good value
I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. It's a newly renovated hotel, so the rooms are nice. The staff was very nice, from the bell man to the waiter to the front desk to the valet. Every one had a great attitude and good service.
You can walk to the French Quarter in about 5 minutes and it seemed to be a pretty safe walk. The casino/aquarium area is also walkable distance.
Convenient to convention center
Just returned from this hotel. We were there for a convention and it's perfectly located - about a block away from the big convention center. Rooms are average, but clean. Restaurant is decent. Made-to-order omelets and waffles are worthwhile and the pizza at dinner was fine. (Can't eat jambalaya every day!) It's smallish so there's no concierge - restaurant reservations, tours, etc. you're on your own. They do have a rack of brochures in the lobby. Rooms are internet-ready.
