Las Vegas has got an unnecessary bad reputation as being the Sin City. Compared to New Orleans, Vegas is saintly.
It is hard to describe the chaos that is New Orleans. Imagine ten thousand people (maybe more), get them all drunk and then throw them on one street, a street littered with live music venues, restaurants and too many sleazy …
Last night we realized that this Hilton Hotel is truly in a very old building and none of the walls are soundproofed. Around midnight, there is a loud banging on the door (NOT our door). A voice shouts - "This is the police". That certainly got my attention. But I think it was a case of friends trying to pull a fast one on other friends. There was …
Hubby left yesterday to go back to work in *****ia. I had one more night in the same hotel and then I move to a different hotel for a few days in New Orleans with my daughter. My husband is a furnace body. I know this but it is always very noticeable when he leaves. The whole time he has been here, we have to crank up the air conditioning at night …
My hubby's last day on this rotation. He left tonight to go back to work in *****ia. I'll see him in a month in Atlanta where we will move on then to Key Largo and hopefully do some diving if there are no oil problems. His flight didn't leave until around 5 so we had this morning to do a last bit of touring. We have spent many days in New Orleans …
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.
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)
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!!!
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
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.
