The Hilton Riverside is a really nice hotel in an excellent location, right along the waterfront - the street car is steps away, and the casino literally across the street. I'm a Hilton Diamond member, so we were upgraded to an amazing room with a breathtaking water view and we also had access to the executive lounge which also has spectacular views of the city and the river. Our room had 2 queen beds which were very comfortable. The room also had a very large flat screen tv and a mini fridge. However we didn't spend that much time in our room, but it was always nice coming back to it after being out and about.
The hotel itself is very large hotel and as such has very nice public spaces and restaurants. We were fine with the executive lounge and being in New Orleans had our meals around town, but the breakfast in the Executive lounge was nice, as were the mid day snacks and the evening treats.
We did a lot of walking in New Orleans, we also took the street cars, and also had a rental car. The hotel offers self parking and valet, but we were lucky to find street parking very close to the hotel - several times - so if you want to avoid the expense of hotel parking, it's possible.
The waterfront park right outside the hotel is wonderful. The aquarium is right there, and you can walk to the edge of the French Quarter via the waterfront, and take the street car back.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
