My wife and I chose this location because it was close to the convention center. We booked using Hilton Honor points for a 2-night stay. The event we were coming for got moved to the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner; but we decided to stay at this HGI anyway since we had a day and a half of tourist time before the event.
One thing I like about HGI's is their consistency from state to state and city to city. This was up to par with other HGI's. The lobby area and room were both clean. The staff was friendly. We didn't get down until near the end of breakfast the first morning and they had run out of some of the items they normally have, and the 2nd morning the toaster was out of service. Minor nuisances that didn't really affect my overall satisfaction.
On the plus side they had a "smokers paradise" behind the hotel where I could smoke a cigar after a long day down in the French Quarter; but I must say the chairs were not that comfortable for sitting an hour or more.
While this HGI is convenient to the convention center and the Warehouse District (and Harrah's Casino as well I'd say), it is a bit of a hike from the French Quarter, Bourbon Street and the French Market. My wife and I like to walk, so it was no big deal to us; but when we left the room for the day, we didn't come back until we were done for the night. If you aren't up for walking over a mile each way, then I would recommend something located in the French Quarter itself. If you don't mind walking and you want to be able to get away from the noise and activity, then this location certainly is a good option.
