We stayed at this Hampton Inn in preparation for our week long cruise out of Nola to the Western Caribbean. And while there are other Hampton Inns in town, this turned out to be the ideal location, a great jumping off point for exploring the French Quarter, the funky downtown sector and yet not being in a noisy locale.
The Downtown/French Quarter location is just 1 1/2 blocks from the action on Bourbon Street, easy walking distance to dozens of wonderful eateries, and conveniently located on the St. Charles Streetcar line. This HI is also located adjacent to a popular Mall and during weekdays you will have the added bonus of a food court and extra food delivery service.
Besides the very good hot breakfast Hampton Inns provide and the extra comfy bedding and fresh, hot cookies upon check in, you are just half a block from a larger convenience store and the added treat of Brothers Chicken, some of the tastiest fried poultry with the addition of some authentic New Orleans sides...don't miss the tasty spiced meat pies for example...so good we went there twice, and my Other Half is still talking about it!
Another tip, for just a couple dollars ride the St. Charles Streetcar all the way to the end of the line, past Tulane University and back...you will have a very inexpensive, up close and personal interaction with Nola locals as well as be treated to views of some of the most expensive and historical real estate in town!
Back at the Hampton Inn, the staff was friendly and helpful at all times, and at checkout, secured us a taxi, (fixed rate), for our short trip down to the Cruise Terminal, now fully rested after the 2 nights at one of our favorite hotel chains...highly recommend!
