Did I mention how old and outdated this property is? I have stayed in several different hotels in New Orleans and realize that most properties are quite old in this city, but this Hampton Inn was the worst.
Let me start with the positives. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The location is great and is less than 2 blocks from Canal and Burbon Street. The bed was comfortable, internet was complimentary, and the channel selection on tv was better than most hotels. There was also a refrigerator and microwave in my room which was nice.
Now the problems.....The owners should really invest some money in this property and renovate the rooms. I'm almost suprised that Hilton allows them to carry the Hampton name. The rooms are big with very tall ceilings, but this also makes the room feel empty and cold. The whole property has a certain smell to it, almost as if you were visiting a nursing home. I think my room has the original carpeting and couch from the 1870s and I almost felt like wearing sandals in my shower because the tub basin just looked gross. I've never seen such dirty windows in my lifetime and my room also had peeling paint and cracked calking. I was here for an entire week which also included Jazz Fest weekend. The weekend rate shot up to $249 per night which is absolutely ridiculous! If a hotel is going to charge $249 per night I am going to expect some phenominal service and facilities. I only hope the owners take a portion of that inflated rate and make some much needed renovations. As a Hilton Diamond member I was quite dissapointed and will not return next time I am in town.
