“Slept Well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Despite having a room across from the elevators, I slept well. My husband and I spent 1 night at this hotel. The room was very clean and the view of the Mississippi River was fantastic. This hotel was too large for me. There were people everywhere. If you are looking for a hotel that gives you an escape from being overcrowded at the French Quarter, this is not the hotel for you.

I have been to New Orleans at least 5 times and I've stayed in a different place everytime. This is by far my favorite place to stay. Upon arrival they were very kind and accomodating. They gave us a room with a dual view of the river and the city. They were so sweet to my 9 year old daughter and even sent her a package of sweets, coloring postcards, and a water bottle free of charge. The location is perfect for the aquarium. No other place in New Orleans compares to the Hilton.

This is a huge property with several towers of rooms. The large size lends itself well to its location right next to the Convention Center.

Stayed 5 nights in July in a double queen room overlooking the Mississippi River towards the bridge and cruise ship terminal. It was fun to watch the cruise ships come in and out and lots of barge and steamboat traffic too! Room was clean, well equipped with a small fridge, excellent toiletries, coffee and tea. The beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows! Elevators at this hotel are excellent, they offer 5 for lower floors & 5 for upper floors out of the main entry building so very speedy service.

Location is just outside the French Quarter within very easy walking distance. Cable car stop right outside the hotel. Taxi cabs always available day & night. Connected to the Outlet Mall that offers decent shopping and a nice food court also. Easy walking to the Aquarium and you could almost literally walk right over to your ship if you are heading on a cruise! Excellent location.

This hotel also boasts a huge indoor court facility for squash & tennis. There is an extra charge to use the courts unless you hold a certain membership level with Hilton Honors. I visited one of the pools and it was nice, but very small and no shade.

Many dining choices inside the hotel also; Starbucks Coffee Shop, Dragos Oysters & Restaurant, Sports Bar and also a small market that is very overpriced.

I would not hesitate to stay again the property was well located and served our needs very well.

Room Tip: River view rooms are nice.

We stayed here 2 nights. We had a beautiful room overlooking the Mississippi River. It is close to the Riverwalk and great shopping. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. It was a great location to see all the fun parts of New Orleans.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with view of the MIssissippi.

Very nice hotel in a good location within walking distance to many attractions. It was great that the outlet mall was so close with several restaurants right there as well. Hotel staff was friendly and checking in and out was a quick process.

We recently stayed for a convention and loved being within walking distance of the French Quarter and Bourbon St! The Hotel is right next to the river and has a great riverwalk. The bus stop for the Hop on-Hop off bus tour was right across the street! We also were pleasantly surprised that there was a large outlet mall attached to the Hotel. The food in the Hotel restaurant, Drago's, is wonderful and couldn't believe the price of a whole lobster dinner was under $30.00! There is also a casino across the street. This is the best centralized hotel in New Orleans! We had a great time and would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river. The lights at night reflecting on the water make it very peaceful.

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!!

Room Tip: High floors
