“Great location, nice hotel, very reasonable rates”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

I should state up front that I like Hampton Inns as they meet my break point between price and amenities. This location did not disappoint. I went to New Orleans for a conference at a large hotel near the Superdome that was charging more than $220 a night. The Hampton Inn was considerably less and only 6 blocks away (and included breakfast and free internet that were "extras" at the more expensive place). While not in the Quarter, the hotel is only 2 blocks away and personally I prefer NOT to stay in the Quarter due to noise and crowd issues. The St. Charles Trolley passes right in front of hotel too. While not ultra modern or extravagant, the hotel was clean and staff helpful and friendly, and the location was great.

I believe that this hotel is a former bank building so it is a little unusual. The room was spacious and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in.

The best part, for me, was that it is only 2 blocks away from the French Quarter. This means you can be in the French Quarter within a few short minutes but be far enough away from all the noise when you wan to good night's sleep.

Our stay at this Hampton was everything we hoped it would be. The staff from the bellboy, doorman, desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. The location for us was perfect. Across the street from the trolley, two blocks from the French Quaters and lots of restaurants nearby. Nice large breakfast area, clean with a good variety of breakfast food. If we stay in New Orleans again this would be the place.

Room Tip: We stayed on floor eleven so we did not have any traffic noise, so I cannot comment on the other flo...

My friends and I stayed at your hotel from the 8th till the 13th. Great Location, but you cleaning staff needs some serious addressing. We had stuff taken from our rooms, (we had connecting rooms). we had stuff moved, I don't mean like a little I mean moved about the room. Our furniture had major stains, carpet was real dirty. Brought this to the front desk staffs attention. We were told they would let us know something about our missing stuff and never got a response back. I will say the guys out front and the majority of the front desk staff were wonderful. But we had issues that were ignored and well I'm already looking into staying somewhere else when I go back because I can't trust the housekeeping staff at all.

Plus: the rooms were quite large and pleasant. The parking is valet and we took the car out every day - and the valets got it there fast.

Minus: Breakfast was pretty lame. Although the coffee was excellent, the eggs were powdered, really inedible, actually inexplicable. There was pork sausage but no hash browns/grits/etc. The pastries were also pretty bad.

One morning I requested an extra chair for the room and the repair of the broken hairdryer and was told "right away." Upon our return 10 hours later neither had been addressed.

This was the ideal spot for our 4 days over New Years for our family of 4 (2 daughters in college).. It is close to the French Quarter (one block) and on the street car line. The hotel is unusual for a Hampton Inn because it has enormous room size and high ceilings and huge windows. All the rest is the reliable Hampton with healthy breakfasts. The staff were helpful and the celebrations on the river were just an 8 minute walk away. Also it is away from the New Orleans Convention center which is nice.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street bring in a great light in daytime and there was no noise despite the hilarity of...
