“I know why it's a top New Orleans Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Researched for a few days on the top hotels in New Orleans according to TripAdvisor. This was was rated #11 at the time, and was the highest rated in our budget. Somehow we got this room for $99 a night (from hotels.com). I've gotten much less for a lot more - so that price was a deal to me!
Here's what we liked:
-Yes, parking in New Orleans seems to be an issue, and unfortunately yes the hotel does charge for parking ($33 each day). HOWEVER, their staff was not rude whatsoever about us wanting to find another parking option. We lucked out by finding an open spot on the road the hotel was on the night we arrived, Parking in metered spaces is free from 6pm-8am in New Orleans. We arrived past 6pm so we didn't even have to pay until the next morning. If you are wanting to sight-see and not come back to the hotel every two hours, I HIGHLY recommend doing the paybyphone.com option. Set it up once with a credit or debit card, pay for your spot with the unique street number and by ID'ing your car's plates, and never touch the meter. We were in the middle of the French Quarter when our parking would expire (I was notified via text!) and I quickly repaid on my smart phone, got it done in 30 seconds, and we went back to shopping. There is a 2 hour limit so every two hours you'll have to pay again, but for us it was amazing to just pay the $3.35 for every 2 hours and forget about it. I know this isn't technically part of the hotel, but I would encourage you not to let the parking price deter you from this awesome place.
-You can easily walk to the streetcar stop at Julia St. and be in the French Quarter (buy the $3 day pass so you can ride as much as you want), yet our hotel was always quiet because it was away from the hustle and bustle
-Staff was extremely helpful. Bellmen remembered us and asked us about our day when we arrived back each night.
-Free breakfast was AWESOME. Have something different each day. Since we'd have to move our car and drive for a while to find any breakfast close, it was perfect knowing we could just go downstairs. Was never crowded, was constantly being restocked by very attentive staff.
-Was a little worried about how small the pool looked in photos, and while it isn't the biggest pool I've ever been in, it never ended up being a problem.
-Taking the advice from other reviewers, we asked for a room in the older part of the hotel so we could have the warehouse feel. Did not disappoint. Great view of the park, high ceiling, old windows, brick wall on one side. It was a unique room unlike most from a chain hotel.

If you want to stay in the middle of everything, this hotel isn't for you. However, if you are coming for a leisurely visit to New Orleans, don't want to spend an arm and a leg and yet still want to feel like you're staying in luxury accommodations, stay here!

Room Tip: Ask for older part or warehouse part of the hotel. Ask for a park view on a higher floor. Also do no...

Fabulous well-run property with huge loft-warehouse style rooms and beautiful huge lobby with outstanding free breakfast. Location is great for conventions and walkable to French Quarter in good weather. Close to Butcher, Cochon, and great warehouse restaurants. Parking fee like everywhere in Warehouse district is steep. Very friendly & helpful staff. Best Hampton I've ever been to, and many of them are quite good.

I took my first trip into New Orleans and had the pleasure of staying at the Hampton Inn Convention Center. There were several family reunions in so the staff was extremely busy but it did not take away from the experience. Chris (I think that was his name. Afternoon desk Supervisor?) Was very helpful in pointing us to the street car and giving us a little history lesson as well which is always welcome. Curtis, in valet, was prompt and always willing to help. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and I hope to be back soon!

Had booked a few Hampton Inns and found that we had to change our plans for this one, so I was horrified to discover that we had a 90 day cancellation period. At first Reservations were going to hold us to a one night cancellation fee and we asked to speak to the manager. He said he'd get back to us as he was swamped with work, so we thought that would be the last we would hear. Within an hour, Jack had left a message to say it was all cancelled with no charge!! Big shout out to Jack - that's the sort of customer service that keeps me coming back to Hampton Inn. Sorry I can't review the hotel.

The rooms are much too outdated. I had a friend come over briefly and even she was set back on the lack of everything. There really is a potential to this place but I do not believe anyone would invest in it. The ONLY pro to this hotel is that it is the closest one to the convention center. Otherwise, you should stay elsewhere because there are many more hotels in the area not too much further away. This is actually away from everything else in NOLA.

Room Tip: Choose a good room elsewhere.

First time in New Orleans and our stay at the Hampton Inn was convenient to the French Quarter and the Riverwalk. Great breakfast and staff were very friendly. Did not have time to get to the swimming pool but it looked very inviting. The weather was very hot and muggy but the air conditioning in the hotel was just right to cool down.
