Editorial review:

A sprawling convention hotel where you can lounge at the riverfront swimming pool while you watch the barges float by, enjoy the tremendous views most of the rooms afford of the Mississippi, get pampered by attentive staff, or take advantage of the onsite dinning and the amazing health club.

                              Walls were thin. Could hear the fraternity party next door.

                              I liked the location of the hotel.

                              The full sized beds seemed smaller than a normal full size bed.

                              The Hotel is very well located

                              The attendant at check-in was pretty rude

                              Great location, walking distance from the French Quarter. Cafe in the lobby serving Starbucks coffee.

                              Could be more staff at the reception (the hotel is huge, therefore you have to stand wait in a queue most of the time).

                              Bed was a little uncomfortable for both my wife & myself.

                              It is very close to downtown New Orleans. It was in walking distance of every place I wanted to visit.

                              Location to other major attractions in the city is a big plus, but convenience to anything needed is right at your fingertips. The hotel has a super nice bar, wonderful restaurant, and all around great ambiance. The Riverwalk is steps away, so shopping is very easy. Our room was beautiful, very plush, and very clean. The staff at the Hilton was very efficient from the moment we checked in. Staying here was a pleasure!
