At first sight, when we entered the room, we found it huge and quite comfortable. It was room 713, a corner room. There is a safe, a small fridge and a microwave. Then we realised that if we left the curtains open, everyone using the parking opposite the building could see into the room so we closed all the curtains and left for a walk. When we came back and went to bed, we heard a noise and in fact there are 2 huge things for the airco probably just opposite the window (see my photos). These stop only during the day and start again at night so we had this noise all night long, with some vibrations too, a real nightmare. On the second day, they started around 21H30. Then there is this small fire alarm in the room which also makes some noise from time to time. Not the best nights I have ever had so if you go to this hotel, ask to be away from this side of the building. The hotel offers free wifi but the connection is not stable so you have to reconnect several times and it’s really slow. (connection lost +/- every 10 to 15 minutes) Housekeeping is cleaning the room so quickly that our bins where not emptied and there were still some crisps on the carpet near the beds.
Otherwise the hotel is close to the French Quarter, there is a CVS on the corner where you can get something to eat and to drink. We took a cab from the airport to the hotel: 33 dollars for 2 persons and it took only 15 minutes so it’s worth the price.
Breakfast is really not good but I suppose that it’s because I’m European … I prefer to have fresh croissants than having these pancakes that we usually eat for desserts in the afternoon instead of having them at breakfast.
That’s not the first Hampton Inn that I try, again I’m disappointed and really prefer the ‘classic’ Hilton hotels.
