“Best hotel and location in downtown New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2009

The Hilton Riverside Hotel is the best hotel and location in downtown New Orleans. The staff is professional and very accomodating. One of the most popular New Orleans restaurants is located on the 1st floor of the hotel "Drago's". I recommend the Chargrilled Oysters On-A-Half-Shell!! My spacious room overlooked the historic Mississippi River and Riverwalk. The hotel is located across from Harrah's Casino, The Convention Center, the Canal St. Shopping Plaza, and the Famous New Orleans Aquarium. I highly recommend the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel. - Thomas - Gallo Winery

The staff was very professional and courteous. I was very happy with the set up of the room. In fact, if available, ask for the Port or Compass room. There is a wonderful view of the river!

Love the location and service this Hotel provides. Easy access to anywhere in the city and the staff is so Friendly and Knowledgeable. The food at the Hotel compares to anywhere in the city... Drago's Rest. located in the lower level is one of the best Hotel Rest I have ever had the pleasure of dinning with.
