“The best because...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

First and foremost, they let us park our car for our cruise - the entire duration for FREE. We saved $90. In a city where secure parking seems practically unheard of, that is a fantastic deal.

The location is wonderful. It is right on the St. Charles street car line which takes you directly to the edge of the French Quarter. So basically, you pay half the price to stay outside of the Quarter, but get the added advantage of experiencing one of the iconic New Orleans attractions.

There is a great restaurant right down the street which was recommended to us by the awesome staff called Superior Seafood which had various happy hours including $6 dozen raw oysters and half price drinks. So awesome. It is within walking distance to the hotel, but they do offer free valet parking if you choose to drive.

The hotel staff is so friendly and helpful. We are really so grateful for that.

Their breakfasts are wonderful as well as their crackers, cheese and grape evening snack.

Just a great hotel overall. We will definitely stay again.

We found the hotel very clean and in a very nice area. The staff were always very helpful. Cheese and crackers with grapes was very nice when you first come in from a days sightseeing.
Breakfast was plentiful, and it was nice to sit outside in a morning.
The pool was too small and did not look very clean.
If you wanted to eat out at night the streetcars work all night and is only 3 dollers for all day.

Room Tip: Away from the icemasker

I am a Hilton Diamond VIP and travel every other week for work. I often stay at Hampton Inns and find them to usually be updated, clean, and modern. This particular Hampton in New Orleans has a very pleasing exterior and lobby, but very tired rooms. As other reviewers have stated, the furniture is light oak and "cheap looking," bathrooms have not been updated (still have the ceiling light fixture and plain white counter tops, as well as white/gold plain bathroom tile). The only upgrade in the bathroom was a curved shower rod! The good thing about my room on the 6th floor was how quiet it was. I slept very well; didn't hear a sound from neighboring rooms. My company paid $159 a night for this room, and it was only worth about $99 because of the outdated condition of the rooms; if they remodeled and made this a more pleasant place to stay it would be a great hotel because of location and quiet atmosphere.

Room Tip: Top floor; very quiet.

I stayed at Hampton Inn Garden District for over three weeks while teaching a short course at Tulane University. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The daily tea, cheese & crackers, and grapes were delightful. Hot coffee and water for tea was available round the clock. The staff at the front desk was professional. The St Charles streetcar stops less than a block from the front door, and riding the streetcar to the university every day was pleasant, even in the month of June. The only negative is the lack of an on-site laundry. My choice was to schlep my dirty clothes 8 blocks to a place on Magazine Street or to lug my hamper onto the streetcar and go to a place on St Charles Avenue closer to CBD.

Room Tip: The rooms looking over St Charles Avenue cost more.

I stayed here for two nights in July 2012, travelling alone on business and trying to fit in some fun on the side. I had been in the fall for a conference at the convention center and stayed right by the French Quarter, and while it was convenient for that scene, this was better on just about every level. Nice outdoor patio and pool, great in the July heat; steps from the streetcar that will get you to the French Quarter or Tulane/Audubon; easy walking distance to shopping on Magazine Street, historic cemetery, and the amazing homes of the Garden District. A longer but not bad walk to Audubon, though streetcar would be easier. While I enjoyed getting my Hurricane and Hand Grenade with friends, if you want a more family-friendly or just laid back stay, this is pretty hard to beat. Rooms, decor, food, etc were all solidly Hampton Inn quality, no real issues and no major frills. Plenty of parking. My only minor gripe was that I asked at the front desk for the passes they said they offered for a local gym (which I think is just next door at a hospital), and it turned out it's closed on weekends. Fine - go for a run and hit the pool - but it does seem like they could have even a room's worth of equipment themselves, or a 7-day-a-week gym partnership.

You certainly can find more sumptuous accommodations in the Big Easy but the price is right here. You save at least $30 on parking. It is free and easy in and out, no waiting. The breakfast is also free (saves you another 20-50$) and offers a variety of selections from yogurt to waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit and the coffee is very good for free hotel coffee. They will even give you a to go breakfast. If you like to run or walk you cannot beat St Charles Avenue for safety and interesting views. The rooms are not fancy but certainly adequate.

I attended our district meeting at a local hospital that was walking distance from this hotel. Our rooms were ready when we arrived which was a blessing seeing that we arrived at 11:00am. The room was clean and had everything that i needed. They had a nice breakfast and the staff was very helpful with dirrections and suggestions. The street car run in front of the hotel and a great restuarant is next door. Free wireless in the room. Free parking.I would stay here again
