Historical Traveller Reviews of Hampton Inn French Quarter Area Downtown Hotel
Excellent Hotel!from DCP_MA
We stayed at the HI from Apr 21-26, 2004. The room and bath were immaculate and spacious. The staff is friendly and helpful. The security is quite good. One needs to use a key card to get in after 11 pm, and also to use the elevators. Although I never felt threatened in the neighborhood, this was a bonus because New Orleans is a city in which one must be aware of one's surroundings.
I wish it were a bit closer to the river, but even so, it's only a hop to the French Quarter; and it's right on the streetcar line.
I would definitely stay there again.
Hampton Inn needs a good housecleaningfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The place to stay in NOLAfrom Birmingham_ALLaura
Charles Avenue was a quiet and relaxing change from the noise and crowds of the French Quarter. It was certainly a nice place to unwind after a day of sightseeing. Plus, it is right on a streetcar stop and just a $10 cab ride from the Quarter when you want to get out in the evening. For people who are driving, there is ample free parking. The continental breakfast was far above average with many different selections, including hot items. The only reason I did not give this hotel an "excellent" rating is that the housekeeping service was exceptionally slow. Both days, when we returned late in the afternoon, our room hadn't been cleaned. After alerting the front desk, the room was serviced promptly. However, this is, by far, my new favorite place to stay in New Orleans and I will certainly visit it again.
What a great experience!from A TripAdvisor Member
Loved the Hampton Inn on Carondeletfrom mamaspice
at the Hampton Inn on Carondelet and it was fantastic! The breakfast
was great and the breakfast room was open all day and in the evenings
so we could go in and get coffee, ice, pop or just lounge, watch TV or
look-out the windows at the scenery! The rooms were clean and the view
we had from our room was beautiful, especially at night with all the
lights and the gas lights on the hotel across the street!
Everyone of the staff was great and did their best to accommodate the
multitude of questions everyone seemed to have! If they didn't have the
answer they found someone who did!
Carondelet turns into Bourbon Street once you pass Canal and we walked
from the hotel to Bourbon Street and never once felt uncomfortable.
There are always people milling around. The cable car stops at Canal
and Carondelet plus there are the shops and restaurants on Canal and
the people pouring off of Bourbon! The hotel is in a great location!
Business in the day time and other hotels so there is always activity!
While we were there a smoker set-off a smoke alarm in a hallway and we happened to be in the lobby when the alarm went off and the entire staff acted so quickly and efficiently that we were impressed! They evacuated with no sense of panic (for all you single gals, the firemen could have all been on a hunk calendar).
Just one drawback. The valent parking was slow and inefficient! We
ended-up cabbing whenever possible!
The Moores from Nebraska highly recommend it!
Convenient Location A Big Plus!from A TripAdvisor Member
If you're looking for a hotel that's close to the main attractions, the Hampton Inn on Carondelet is a great choice. It isn't exactly cheap, but it is less expensive than other major hotels in the area. It's very close to some great restaurants nearby, and practically sits on the trolley stop so it's really easy to get to the Garden District. Because we were so close to everything, we never had to rent a car while in New Orleans, so the room rate was worth it.
The rooms are clean and comfy and the elevators can only be operated with a room key, so that's an added bonus. We didn't have any bad/weird feelings about walking near the hotel at night, but the added security measure was a nice touch. If we go back to New Orleans, we'll probably stay at the Hampton Inn again.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans
Earnest- Cemetary Tours Definately do a cemetary tour and ask for Earnest! I have never had a more interesting tour in my life! He was so knowledgeable on everything, from cemetary customs, to nightlife. He could answer every question about anything you want to know... Please do yourself a favor and take his tour!
Utilize the RTA system You can get a one day pass for $5.00 and 3-day pass for $12.00. There are more values, but I don't know them. The drivers are great and will give you tips on getting around.
On its way back up Keep in mind that many stores do not have enough staff to stay open for as many hours as they normally would. For example, Walgreens on Canal Street closed around 10 or 11 instead of being 24 hours. Also keep your wits about you as you are in the city. I felt safe, as there was a constant police presence, but nontheless be aware of your surroundings.
