I travel and stay in hotels about 48 of the weeks of the year. Every time I'm in a city for business i try to consider Hilton properties event though i typically stay at Marriott because Hilton has invested in a number of historic hotels.

As a Waldorf hotel, which is the top tier in hilton hotel line, this hotel didn't disappoint us. Beautiful lobby area in Xmas season, classic room decoration, and the most important part-their fabulous restaurants. Before jumping into the room, I have to emphasize how delicious the food this hotel restaurant offers. Beignets, the must-try french dessert in NOLA. Believe me,... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. The holiday season here is my favorite, as the Christmas decorations are outstanding! There are quality bars, restaurants, and shops on property. The rooms have excellent furnishings and you are two blocks away from Bourbon St. Most of all, the service is better than than hotel itself. If you... More

Just love this hotel when in New Orleans! The lobby is simple gorgeous (check it out at Christmas time) and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. Of course you have the world famous Sazerac bar for an adult beverage...or 2. Not the lowest priced hotel but if you are looking for... More

It was a trip for R&R. It was very busy over the Thanksgiving holiday in which the service level of the front desk-Ramon (not welcoming at all especially for an Hilton Honors member) and valet could not handle the volume. The room was nice but it seemed the housekeeping needed to do some dusting around the baseboards and clean the... More

This hotel is a fabulously charming property. The grounds were very clean and meticulously maintained. Our room, a king suite, was very well furnished. The staff was very gracious and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Our family visited New Orleans for Thanksgiving and was thrilled to see the hotel already beautifully decorated for Christmas! Although the lobby was robust with activity, the hallways were quiet because only hotel guests are able to access the elevators.

We enjoyed this hotel, and its location. Staff was helpful, facilities better than expected. I'd recommend it without reservation. I enjoyed morning fruit and coffee in the small cafe off the lobby. Not much for a big breakfast, we didn't eat in the hotel.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
