Hampton Inn & Suites New Orleans Downtown (French Quarter Area)
Ranked #28 of 166 Hotels in New Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 21, 2005

We had 8 people travel to New Orleans for a reunion in November, 2004 and this was a great choice! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful-they gave us adjoining rooms as well as travel directions to the plantations we wanted to see. The continental breakfast is more than rolls and coffee: hot entrees every day, with fruit and cereals galore. The rooms were large and very clean. The location is 2 blocks from Bourbon Street and the Quarter, and within walking distance to the casinos and riverboats. It also is right on the St. Charles streetcar line. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would return there ourselves!

We recently stayed at Hampton Inn from Jan 31, 2005 to February 5, 2005. The lobby is very classy, and the receptionists are courteous and professional. The elevator could only be operated with your room key, which makes you feel safe and secure.

The room we reserved was a King Study; however, we were upgraded to a King Study with Whirlpool Tub. When we checked the room, we found out that we got a corner room on the 9th floor. The room was incredible. There are four huge windows that give you a great view of the city. The windows are double insulated; therefore, you will not hear any noise from the outside. The room includes a study table, a sofa, and a chaise lounge. The bed is nice and comfortable. The bathroom is huge with a Whirlpool Tub that could fit two people. They also offer free internet service in your room

The breakfast buffet at the Carondolet Room is great plus. The breakfast table has an abundant array of food. They have muffins, breads, fruits, cereals, eggs, sausages, bagels, and king cake in honor of Mardi Gras. They also have coffee, orange juice, hot tea, and hot chocolate.

The gym is also clean with machines that actually work. They all seem to be new.

The hotel location is a great plus. There is a food court connected with the hotel that serves lunch Mondays to Fridays. The streetcar also stops in front of the hotel. The hotel is only 2 blocks from Bourbon Street. There are a lot of restaurants that are within walking distant. There is also a bank connected with the hotel and a drugstore/supermarket (Walgreen) is just a few blocks away from the hotel.

If you are staying during Mardi Gras and you need to leave the hotel during the parade, fear not because you will be able to leave the hotel.

Overall, this is a great hotel and much kudos to the people who works here.

This was my first trip to New Orleans and was not sure where to stay, but after reading the high reviews on the Hampton Inn - French Quarter I decided to give it a try. I arrived at 11 a.m on Monday the 24, after returning to port from a cruise. I was aware of the 3 p.m. checkout time but decided to get a try anyway. The front desk was extremely helpful and allowed us to check-in early. The front desk suggested that we attend the Managers reception. The reception consisted of beer, wine and a great bowl of red beans and rice. The room was nice and roomy, very clean, and the service we received from the front desk was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I've been to New Orleans twice in the last two years and stayed at this hotel both trips. After a disasterous first night stay at the NO East Hampton Inn in Feb. of '03 I moved to the downtown location for the remainder of my stay. No knock on the first hotel, but it is way out on the outskirts of town, near the Six Flags park. I was in town for the first parade weekend of carnival, before the big rush, and I wanted to be near the French Quarter. Hampton East is a long and expensive cab ride from the Quarter, and on busy nights during peak season cabbies were reluctant to go all the way out there for one fare.

The downtown Hampton is just two short blocks walking distance from Canal and Bourbon Street. A great place to stay if you plan to hang out in the Quarter or watch the parades as they come up and down Canal. The rooms are clean and quiet and the service was adequate. I also liked the complimentary breakfast, which is a step above typical Continental breakfasts that I've had at other Hampton Inns.

For the price it couldn't be beat. If there was only one criticism I would say that being ACROSS Canal from Bourbon Street (Carondelet actually turns into Bourbon Street when it crosses Canal) it can be a challenge getting across Canal when parades are in progress. Not a major issue but I though I would mention it.

We stayed here twice during January 05....Great service. Nice rooms..The king delux suite was really nice (had a living room plus a desk area)..A great breakfast (free) plus a boxed lunch every day and a paper delivered to your door for free. Add to this baked cookies at the desk every evening and you have it all. The rooms were spacious with old world charm (huge windows- tall ceilings and beautifully decorated) with high speed internet in your rm for free....The location was great. We were one block from Bourbon street and all the activities and only a few blocks to the riverwalk....It was on the trolly line if you needed to go any further but for us it was central to everything and we could walk to most rest's and attractions...Will stay again if in town...

Great location and reasonable price. The only problem was that the air conditioner in the rooms was not able to keep the room cool. I stayed two nights and after the first night I asked for a different room. The staff was helpful and politely granted my request. The second night was better, but during the day the room was kind of muggy. Full disclosure, I was visiting during the first week of August. Maybe the air conditioner will be able to manage the heat in less brutal weather. I plan to stay at the same hotel this coming March.

The previous excellent reviews are still accurate. We spent 3 nights here the first week of December, and the hotel is just as good as our first stay here about 4 years ago. The entire staff was great from the moment we arrived, and throughout our entire stay. Our room was a large corner room overlooking the street, yet very quiet. The Manager's afternoon cocktail hour was one of the best we've ever had, with beer, wine, soft drinks and included a hot soup with all kinds of crackers, which was great enough to be our dinner the day we arrived. The breakfast buffet also was great, with a wide variety of items, and two hot dishes every day. which varied depending on the day. The days we were there included eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and french toast.

The only caution about the hotel is that some of the rooms are not as large and bright as the one we had. The first room we were offered was very small and overlooked rusty cooling towers of the building next door, with almost no sunlight. When we pointed out to the front desk that we were there for three days and needed something more cheerful, our room was changed without any problem.

We definitely would stay here again.
