“GREAT Place to Stay in New Orleans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was here on business, and stayed here based on location, price, and having stayed here a few years ago. The hotel location is great - right in the middle of all St. Charles St. has to offer (many great restaurants - there's a Tex-Mex right next door, Superior Seafood *excellent* and Fat Harry's about 8 blocks away, and New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Company about 2 blocks away), close to the park/zoo, Tulane/Loyola, and right on the streetcar line which terminates right at the French Quarter. This is a great place to stay as there are many really good restaurants all within walking distance, and again - right on the streetcar line (there was some construction, so you had to take a bus to go through downtown and to the French Quarter, but stop is a block away).

There is free gated parking, the hotel - like all Hamptons - has the nice breakfast, which was amply stocked, always kept clean, and the hostesses were nice as could be. They also have a evening snack reception (cheese + crackers) which was a nice touch. The hotel is nice and clean, the rates are competitive for New Orleans, the staff are all very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are typical Hampton, but that's not a negative.

I have stayed here before, and would definitely stay here again while in the area due to the great location, the cool vibe of the place (especially the lobby and ground floor area), the decent rates, and accommodating staff. Definitely take the streetcar up and down St. Charles and over to the French Quarter (if that's where you want to go) - much cheaper than taking a cab (about $12 from the edge of the French Quarter - Mr. B's Bistro is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to - to the hotel, vs. $1.75 bus/trolley fare).

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel (overlooking St. Charles) are likely more quiet than those toward th...

This is an older hotel, which shows its age, particularly in the rooms. The location is very good and within walking distance of several good restaurants. About a mile from Audubon Park and the St. Charles Ave Street Car runs in front of the hotel. The location makes up for the hotel itself. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

This hotel is located in the garden district which is a beautiful area outside the hustle and bustle of downtown. The trolley runs down the street where the hotel is located but it was under construction during our visit so a car was a must. Parking is free which offset the cost of the rental. Internet is also free and strong signal in the room. The rooms were a little dated but comfortable, adequate in size and clean. Our room was located in the back of the hotel and was very quiet. The continental breakfast was good and there were plenty of tables. There were tables outside next to the pool but it was surprisingly noisy so we moved inside. Pool was small and we never saw anyone using it. The late afternoon snack of grapes, crackers and cheese was a nice touch. Staff were helpful in giving information about the area and its a perfect location to explore the garden district. Its less than a mile from the Layafette Cemetery which is a nice walk to see the homes and have lunch at the Commander's Palace. Its a perfect location to relax upon arrival and explore the more quiet areas of New Orleans but close enough to get downtown.

We stay here when visiting our son at Tulane. We have always found this hotel very clean and a staff that is always eager to assist. The free breakfast in the comfortable lobby is a nice bouns. My restaurant review rates it very good, please note that this is the only meal that they serve. In addition to being located near Tulane, Loyola and Audubon Park, it is very close to a number of excellent area restaurants and shops on Magazine Street. Also, if you enjoy walking in neighborhoods of historic homes, you'll love the location.

Room Tip: The streetcar out on St. Charles runs 24/7. Rooms in the front of the hotel may hear a few dings of...

I have stayed here twice and have enjoyed both visits. This is convenient to the St. Charles streetcar line (currently a shuttle service) to head straight downtown. The staff is great and the outdoor space is relaxing in such a busy area. Parking is free. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

The garden district is a great part of NOLA, with old mansions, trees, cemeteries, and hip areas. The hotel is nice enough, but a little noisy with the streetcar in the front and the nearby hospital with ambulances arriving. Interior is standard hampton, with decent bed, sheets, TV, etc. Cleaned well, newer carpet and furniture. The folks are nice. If you are looking for something away from downtown or crazy Bourbon St, this is just fine, especially if the price is right.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor away from the front.
