“DRAGOS OYSTER IN THE HILTON THE BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Stayed at the Hilton Riverside for a nieces weekend. Very close to all the action. Had a key issue but was compensated nicely for inconvenience. Disappointed in Dragos oysters which we have had many times - way too many shells this time. Hotel is actually connected to riverwalk shopping. Great fun was had. Will be back in December!!

For the price of over $200 per night, the rooms were very small and bed was not comfortable at all. There was also a charged to use the fitness center. I think that this hotel over charged the week of July 4th because the city hosted the Essence Festival

Angela C,

Thank you for choosing us as your EMF 2014 destination. We enjoyed having you here and hope to see you back again for EMF 2015. You can be assured that none of our rates changed for July 4th weekend. Our fees for the ancillary services you mentioned are comparable to other hotels locally and nationally for those services. Hopefully during your next stay you will enjoy our Health Club by Hilton, it is comparable to your local health Club facility and I am certain you will enjoy the many fitness venues the Club has to offer our guests. Enjoy the second half of the summer season. We will see you soon.

Having stayed there for a week, everyone was so nice and accommodating above any service I have ever experienced! Definitely recommend! The food was delicious and the wait staff was amazing! When I had questions about my stay, the front desk was more than helpful and I didn't feel rushed in the slightest. They really take care in their customers and I cannot wait to stay here again next time I am in New Orleans!!

Stayed at this hotel with my family and I couldn't wait to write a review about our experience. It's situated in the heart of The French Quarter, but honestly, there's so much to do at the hotel, it's quite amazing and overwhelming. You really don't even have to go outside to enjoy awesome restaurants and outlet shopping right there. It's walking distance to everything including the Aquarium of the Americas and The World War 2 Museum, a must see!!
Bourbon street is a couple blocks away as is Jackson Square and all the attractions you can possibly take in.
The Staff at the Hilton went out of there way to make us feel like V.I.P's especially James, the concierge on the executive level. I travelled there from Virginia and felt at home. I will definitely stay at the Hilton Riverside the next time I visit New Orleans.

I stayed here during the Essence Fest weekend. Lovely hotel near everything. Trolley was right next to hotel, took trolley to French market and back. I was able to jump on the bus to go to Bourbon Street and the stadium to attend the concerts. I was able to walk to conversation center and some of the stars were staying in the hotel with us. I had a nice time here. Rooms were nice and roomy.
