My boyfriend and I wanted to take a quick trip for Memorial Day weekend so decided on NOLA. I booked The Hampton Inn because it was only $109 a night and we were watching our budget. We planned on drinking, eating and shopping alot so decided to cut back on the hotel. When I booked the room online, only smoking was avaliable so I said "whatever" and went ahead and reserved the room.
We got checked in quickly and the staff was friendly. We got to the room and it did not smell like smoke at all. I was so happy because we do not smoke. We were so suprised at how big the room was. I was thinking it would be a shoe box. It was almost like a suite. We stayed in room 709 I beleive. The bed was really comfy and there was a mini fridge which was nice for our beer & such. The bathrooms were pretty clean but old tile lined the floor and a tad bit of mildew in the shower but not nasty. Several times our room keys quit working & the staff was always nice in getting us new ones. It was never loud in the hotel either.
It is only 2 blocks to Canal and Bourbon Street. There is a corner store (24 hours I think)across the street from the hotel so we got drinks and snacks everyday. Keep in mind the hotel does not have room service or a restaurant....but theres always something open because New Orleans never sleeps. The hotel had these awesome Otis Spunkmeyer (spelling?) cookies at the front desk in little bags that were so fresh and good.
We will stay here again if go back to NOLA anytime soon. The location is what we absolutly loved.
