Great location great views Mar 30, 2013
This hotel is located four blocks from the start of the French quarter and near everything . Check in is at 3pm and we arrived at 1 pm and the room was ready. Check out is 12 pm which is great as many people get a late start for breakfast. The hotel took out the jacuzzi but kept the pool which was heated. Hotel has dining options but there is plenty in riverside market place, Harrah's casino which is across the street and many local fares within walking distance. The views of the river were amazing, the only complaint I had was train comes by at 735 am and horn blows three times so if you are a light sleeper you will hear this.

Big Chain Hotel - Great Location & Amenities but No Soul Apr 24, 2011
Stepped into the massive, air-conditioned lobby area and took the escalator up to the 2nd floor check-in area. My first impression was, "This place is really big!" Staff were welcoming and friendly throughout our 4 day stay.

There are 2 restaurants and a bar on the 1st and 2nd floors. There's also a pool, full fitness centre and indoor tennis courts. Sadly, it costs guests over $60 every time you want to play tennis! Yikes! (That's a little dirty, given that the room was just under $200/night.)

We took a king room on an upper, "executive" floor, which gave us access to a "free" continental breakfast on the 29th floor, which has great views of the Mississippi and a city view on the other side. We also had drinks up there one evening.

The room itself was OK, but nothing really "special". It was clean with a king bed, but not really worth the price, IMO. It was an OK size, but very generic. Prices for items in the mini-bar were ridiculously overpriced. The bathroom had a full tub and toilet, but in a pretty small space. Nice towels and robes, and shampoo/conditioner/soap/etc. Iron & ironing board in-room too. There was a funky smell, like diesel or stale rubber, in the front part of the room for the duration of our stay.

The hotel IS in a great location right at the corner of Poydras & Canal Streets. It's literally a 30 second walk to the Riverwalk, and 2 minute walk to the Audubon Aquarium. About 10-15 minute walk to the French Quarter or streetcar stops.

All told: This hotel is in a great location with great amenities, but it's a little pricey for a rather generic, faceless hotel that doesn't really offer a unique or memorable experience. I chose this hotel for the indoor tennis, but given how expensive it was, I was a little disappointed. If I return to NOLA, I would choose a smaller hotel with more character and ambience with better overall value. There are lots of options.

Great location in downtown New Orleans by French Quarter Apr 16, 2010
I have stayed at the Hilton Riverside New Orleans twice. The hotel is centrally located in the Downtown area of New Orleans right near the French Quarter.

The hotel is beautiful inside the lobby area. I was pleasantly greeted by staff and the check-in went seamlessly.

The suite I stayed in was beautiful and had a gorgeous view of the Mississippi River. The hotel is walking distance to all of what downtown New Orleans & The French Quarter have to offer. It is also really close to Harrah's Casino for gambling, and close the streetcar line.

I would recommend taking the streetcar to Uptown New Orleans since the Uptown area is a whole other aspect of New Orleans to experience while in town. They have a great zoo (Audubon Zoo) and many great restaurants located near Tulane College & Loyola New Orleans college.

I recommend the Hilton Riverside New Orleans to friends & family and I would definitely stay there again.

LOVED this hotel. Only stayed in it 2 nights but it was incredible. The lady who checked me in gave me a room with a full-river view on the top floor. There is a very new and modern health club attached to it (extra fee though)which is really nice. Lots of food choices and a great bar. The room is big and very comfortable. Its attached to the Riverwalk Mall so you don't even have to leave to do your shopping, if you don't want to.
