We checked in to Executive Level at this hotel. We had a very brief wait for our room and waited in the Executive Lounge on the top floor (29th floor). Execeptional customer service and awesome views from the high level floors. We preferred the city view to the river view and it was so awesome at night. It is in... More

My husband and I stayed here New Year's Eve and New Year's Day while attending the Sugar Bowl and related festivities. We arrived two hours before check in, but did not have to wait for our room. The check in was very quick, which is amazing considering how busy the hotel was. Our room was very nice and extremely clean.... More

Spent a few days here with family over Christmas. Had the hotel to ourselves. Everything was great. Only downside was the Exceutive Loung was closed for the holidays, which was made up for with generous breakfast vouchers. Hotel traffic picjked up considerably fater Christmas for the Saints game and upcoming Sugar Bowl. In all, a great experience.

Second time we've stayed at this hotel and again it was more than we expected. The staff is extrememly helpful and personable beginning with the valet and continuing to the frontdesk. We had cocktails at Dragos - a martini, a cosmo and charbroiled oysters, delicious! - and the bartender made us feel like we were at our neighborhood bar. We... More

This hotel is located at a great location. It is on the edge of the French Quarter, adjacent to the convention center, and close to the Central Business District and has all the emntities you would expect from a Hilton Hotel.

My family have been traveling to New Orleans for three generations, and we always stay at the Riverside Hilton. We've only stayed at another hotel twice. This hotel is a fantastic idea for several reasons: (1) the views of the river are wonderful, (2) it's quiet, (3) it's a 10 minute walk to the French Quarter, (4) it is attached... More

With the rush of a "live" production, one tends to give up "comforts" and often courtesy. The Staff and Management of The Hilton New Orleans Riverside, from Lisa Rosevally in the executive office down to Linda and Vanessa in Roomservice, were exceptional in every way imaginable. Every need from extra towels to extra ketchup were readily provided along with friendly... More

We have been staying at this hotel for the past 3 years. It has such a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Everyone bends over backwards to accompany you. Easy to check in and out. Because of the location we're in walking distance of everything you can think of; shopping, gambling, French Quarters, Cathedral, Horse and carriage ride, WWII museum, not to... More
