I stayed at the Hampton Inn, New Orleans on Carondelet St. during a quick work trip. It was the most affordable hotel in the area.
The building the hotel is in is a historic building and even though I arrived on Sunday, there was construction in the lobby. This was not an issue, just surprising.
Check-in was quick and easy. All of the desk clerks I met during the stay were friendly and knowledgable, offering restaurant directions and directions that were spot on. The hotel is secure: you need to use your key to activate the elevator. I like this in a hotel.
The room was fantastic. Very high ceilings, a lot of free floor space, large clean bathroom with plenty of shelf space, very comfortable bed, big desk, microwave, refridgerator, and even a safe. I was lucky and received a corner room and was able to get a lot of sunlight into the room.
The internet was easy to connect to and very fast. The fitness center was great, especially for a Hampton. It has dumbells to fifty pounds, a lot of machines, etc.
I do not care for Hampton breakfasts but this one was above average. Fresh fruit and fruit salad, and a few other healthy items were available.
This hotel was a good $50 less expensive than the others I was considering in the area, and therefore was a great value.
