“Consistent Quality”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

I try to stay with the Hilton chain of hotels because they offer a consistent level of quality. The Hilton Riverside in New Orleans is no exception. The rooms are large and clean. The bedding is soft and luxurious. The rooms are well maintained; they do not show any wear and tear. The hotel staff are efficient and attentive. The location is convenient to the Convention Center and just a short walk to the French Quarter.

Arrived 12/09/11, check in was quick and easy and my Wife was pleased w/our room and king sized bed, a real sleeper. Then off to GW Finn's for a great seafood dinner w/our niece from Tulanne. Ahhh the french quarter, walking distance from our hotel to so many interesting sights. Took the riverboat tour and learned so much about NOL. Then did the walking ghost tour w/Jenn. More interesting history of this city and its ghosts. We left at 8pm and had a number of bar breaks along the way. The casino is just across the street from our Hilton so blackjack was a must. Mother's hit the spot for breakfast all day long and the baked ham was the best. At the Hilton the charcol oysters ranked number 1. The 6 indoor tennis courts and first class work out facility kept the weight off (small fee). Jumped on the trolley for a ride out to tulanne and the garden district and dinner at Jackamores (sp) for some allagator cheesecake and more good food. Watch out on bourbon street late at night as it gets a little crazy. Will be back soon.

Room Tip: try to get a view of the river

I would not stay farther than this from Jackson Square unless you plan on driving/cabbing/steeetcarimg everywhere. But we walked from here and enjoyed it. It was nice to have a nice, clean place for good price (papa Noel rates). The parking is about $ 35-40/day.

Stayed here one night prior to a cruise as it was just a short walk to the cruise terminal. Arrived around 7 pm and had booked an Executive Room King room. The cab dropped us off and we had a lot of luggage but no bellman interested in helping. Finally got one's attention and he took the bags. For an executive room you have a separate check in on the 29th floor - we were directed back down to the 2nd flood check in, who sent us back up to the 29th floor. The room was fine, overpriced, but nice. We had a good view of the Mississippi and the Voyager of the Seas ship.

As a gold level honors member for Hilton properties we are suppose to get a room upgrade if available - there were suites available but we were told we were not eligible for a room upgrade - this is a first as I travel a lot and almost exclusively use Hilton properties.

As it was late we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant - Drago's - there was a little wait, not bad and the grilled oysters are wonderful. The meal was excellent but the service was spotty.

Breakfast the next morning we decided to go with the buffet - for $20 dollars I would have expected a lot more. The gravy was watery and the food was average at best.

I'll not stay here again but will try the Embassy Suites which is the same distance to the cruise terminal for our next trip.

Overall not bad, but for the price I expect a lot more.

Room Tip: Avoid an Executive level room - not worth the added cost. Get a river view room.

I loved my stay here. The room was nice with a great view and the location was perfect. We walked to Harrahs to gamble., the river walk to shop and it was just a short stroll to the French Quarter. My favorite place to get Oysters "Dragos" on property. The hotel waa pretty busy but check in was swift and we were able to check in a little early.

Room Tip: ask for a river view room

Have stayed at the Riverside Hilton on many occasions. It is a very comfortable and convenient hotel for a trip to downtown New Orleans. The rooms are clean and the beds are easy to sleep in. The staff are excellent and the food is good. It's hard to go wrong here as the rates are usually very competitive with other hotels in the area. It's near the casino and a short walk to the French Quarter or aquarium. Very pleased with my recent stay.
