Stayed here with friends for a night Friday after Hurricane Isaac -- loved it! We stayed in a double bedded room and were able to receive complimentary internet and parking due to connections, which were much appreciated during that tumultuous post-hurricane time! The room was very comfortable. My friend still talks about those pillows! Very much loved seeing the fleur-de-lis... More

The Hilton Riverside is located in a very beautiful area overlooking the Mississippi River. It is close to Harrad's casino and is within walking distance of Bourbon Street. The boardwalk is right beside the hotel and so is the acquarium. The room is a basic hotel room with nothing spectacular about it but is comfortable to sleep in which is... More

We were in town for a wedding. Check in was a breeze. We were able to walk to most locations, large variety of restaurants. Hotel was clean, and just as expected from website. The hotel is very large so there is a lot of walking to reach some of the rooms. Harrah's casino is right across the street and if... More

We stayed there twice --once before a paddlewheel steamer trip and a day after--and check-in was friendly and competent and the rooms were excellent. The complimentary breakfast was better than most mass-feeding venues. The concierge was helpful and informative. All in all, a very good two stays.

Great location over looking the Mississippi River and close to everything downtown. Been coming here for years. Hotel parking, like any place, is expensive but I just park on the street and walk two blocks to the hotel. Or, if you like casinos, Harrads is right across the street and their parking is free if you go play for 30... More

Hilton New Orleans Riverside is a great place to stay. Location is convenient. Staff is friendly. As a Hiltons Honors member, I always have a room on executive floor with access to the lounge on the top floor which is great. The rooms are small overall, but recent renovation was fantastic and rooms with view of the river are the... More

Just a great location for easily walking the city, without actually being in the loud zone. A bit expensive, but probably worth it overall. Parking to hand, but it is a hotel that has large walks between things. Business facilities are good, and the executive lounge is comfy, although drinks are not cheap, the views are amazing. Breakfast was very... More

It was a decent hotel and they thoughtfully upgraded my wife and I to a suite without any request from me. The concierge level "snack" room was on the 29th floor and a welcome scenic retreat for a glass of wine and a tasteful snack after a long walk around town. The location is so very convenient and the trolley... More

First off this Hilton is HUGE! I believe they said it was the largest in the state. With that being said it was a very nice hotel, typical Hilton in a major city.
