The location of this hotel cannot be beat! It is only a short walk to the French Quarter, the Warehouse District as well as being very close to the Cruise Port. Harrah's Casino is right across the street. Check in was quick and efficient and the room was great. The housekeeping staff did a great job with the room being... More

Before turning negative let me say that this hotel is a conveniently located, nicely appointed facility. I travelled to New Orleans with a group of 36 and in all likelihood all of my group had more positive experiences than I did. Guess it was fate that positioned the most avid Trip Advisor reviewer of our group with the most negative... More

For a hotel chain like the Hilton, this one was by far the least pleasant in many way. Overpriced on special week end ($200 jumped $300), we had many many many troubles with our room key. We could not get into our room without the crew trying to figure out what was wrong. Apparently it was the battery. After that,... More

This place has all the advantages in the world and they just can't get it right. So so room, over priced drinks and rooms, restaurant was ok.... Very average. Hilton Gold doesn't help either. Sad really.

This was one of the best Hilton's we have ever stayed in. The hotel location is so close to everything, convention center, Bourbon street, great restaurants, so that alone is a huge plus. Now add in super service from every person I had the opportunity to deal with, starting at check in with Chelsey who took super care of us.... More

I was in New Orleans for a conference. My organization booked me at the Hilton Riverside. I am very familiar with the city but had never stayed at any hotel that close to the river due to finances. This time, the company paid. I was solo but had a room with two queen beds. The room was clean in appearance,... More

Very expensive in all ways. Wine by the glass averaging $14 in the bar and executive level. Extra delivery charges to in room dining unexpected. Booking a ballroom for a reception for a function extremely expensive by comparison to other hotels but quality is there and staff very good.

Stayed here for a conference and I do think the staff was professional and the room was nice. Unfortunately, my room was located in the building right beside the train tracks and there was just no avoiding hearing it everytime it went by.
