We checked in and everything went great. Front desk staff we friendly. The Guys at the Bell Stand were over the top friendly and helpful.
I thought the valet parking price was a little steep but it was competitive with the other hotels in the area so I cannot complain.
I read a review saying there was some issue with the elevators. I did not find that to be the case. As a matter of fact, the elevator system worked better than most I have encountered. You actually pick your floor on a panel outside the elevator. The system then tells you which car to board before you walk into the elevator so the system picks the elevator that will get your floor the quickest.
Stayed on the 36th floor. Room was clean and comfortable.
Have lunch at the Palace Café across the street.
There is a true honest to God Starbucks in the lobby which was a big deal for me and my wife.
The breakfast egg-white omelet served in the Sheraton Restaurant was super and well worth the money.
The newer Drago’s is inside the Hilton and within easy walking distance as is Harrah’s Casino. Eat there for the Broiled Oysters.
The hotel was in easy walking distance to the riverboat tour and the City Tour offered by Grayline. Both are worth the money.
If you are a baby boomer like me and my wife, do Bourbon Street during the day. Bourbon Street at night is for the young and rowdy.
This hotel is very close to the French Quarter. I would suggest walking down and taking a cab back.
Note to the Bell Staff: I was the guy who was looking for the overnight package on 8.6.2013 and was wearing the Saints head visor. You guys are a true asset to the hotel.
The only thing I can offer a suggestion to the hotel on is that the music from the speakers in the lobby by the guest computer stations was TOO LOUD!!!
I would stay there again.
