Historical Traveller Reviews of Hampton Inn French Quarter Area Downtown Hotel

Excellent Hotel!

from DCP_MA
I booked the Hampton Inn based upon extensive web research. I noticed that there were hotels that had high 'stars' ratings, but not such good reviews. The HI may not have such a high star rating, but it surely has good reviews, it's reasonably priced, and in an excellent location.

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 housecleaning

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Hampton Inn on Carondelet in New Orleans. The first night our sheets smelled sour like body odor or vomit. There also was crud in the bathroom sink. We thought this would be improved when the sheets were changed the next day. The bed was made but not changed. We inquired at the front desk and the room was cleaned that day.We noticed when the room next door was cleaned, there were crumbs and lint outside their door. This reminded for the four days we were there. We never saw the hall vacuumed.One evening my husband happened to look down and sticking out from under his night stand was a receipt from Walgreens dated in March. We were in the room in the later part of April.The last day we were there, we were in and out of the room. The bed wasn't made until we again went to the front desk. Then the room wasn't vacuumed or restocked.This is a renovated building that could have dignity if it was cleaned. The lack of professionalism on the part of housekeeping staff ruined our trip.If this is true of Hampton Inns, they do not deserve any stars or high rating.

The place to stay in NOLA

from Birmingham_ALLaura
We always stay at Hampton Inns and this one did not disappoint. It is an absolutely lovely hotel. The lobby and pool areas were beautiful and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean. The room was spacious and nicely appointed. The location was fabulous, too! Beautiful treelined St.
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
We got back last night from New Orleans, where we spent four nights at the Hampton Inn. It was just superb! We had put alot of weight on the other great reviews of the Hampton on this website to decide where to stay on this trip, and they were very accurate. The front desk staff were extremely helpful, especially when the airline misplaced our bags on the trip down, and really everyone we met who worked at the hotel were friendly and helpful without exception. Our room was enormous and just beautiful- it was a corner room with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. It is the most spacious hotel room I've ever stayed in, and I have travelled alot. Our experience at the hotel was wonderful, especially in light of the fact that it was Mardi Gras, with all the ensuing bedlam involved.

Loved the Hampton Inn on Carondelet

from mamaspice
On a recent trip to New Orleans over the holidays we stayed five days
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
We stayed at the Hampton Inn for four days, and were quite pleased with our choice. Not only is it in a great location - less than two blocks from the French Quarter - the hotel offers a great breakfast when compared to other Hampton Inns that we have stayed in. Of course, breakfast should not be the main focus of anyone's trip, but since New Orleans is made for walking, we wanted to make sure that we fueled up before heading out each day. Each morning, they had the usual cereals, bagels, fruit and yogurt... but they also had either eggs or french toast sticks and sausage, along with biscuits and better-than-usual muffins.

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.

Excellent Service Spot.

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you need a comfortable place to crash after a hectic day of sightseeing, this is the place.Hospitality is the word here-starting with Amie the person responsible for checking us in.Amazing how close we were to the major sights. We walked to all of them.

A Wonderful Hotel!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This really made my visit to New Orleans a Great One. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The hotel was beautiful. And a buffet breakfast was a great change of pace from the coffee and danish that most places serve.

Great Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family stayed for 2 nights after a Carnival Cruise. Checked in on Thanksgiving day. All employees were professional and very helpful from the desk clerk to the several maintenance and doormen we had contact with. We checked in at 10am, I expected as usual hotels that they would store our suitcases for us but that we wouldn't be able to check in until the 3pm standard check in time. We were escorted immediately to our room. After being in our room for an hour, loud rap music started in the room next door. The desk clerk sent up someone to ask them to turn it down which they did for a few minutes and then it was turned up again. The desk clerk called back to see if it was ok, she immediately suggested we move to another room and sent up the bellman with new keys and a cart to move our many suitcases. I have to say again the employees (all) were terrific. The rooms are huge, with high ceilings and raised beds, big tv's, nice big windows. The daily continental breakfast isn't your run of the mill muffins, coffee and juice....it was much more. Even eggs and sausage, fruit, cereal, bagels and huge muffins, etc... Great way to start the long days of walking around town. The security at the hotel is outstanding, your room key is needed in the elevator, the gym (which was also above average), the breakfast floor and even in the front door after 10pm. We felt safe. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to New Orleans, the location, security, employees, etc... made it a great stay.

Very very pleased

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a week in April 2003. A great location (walking distance to the Quarter and Casino) street car service at the front door and very friendly and efficient staff. Loved the morning breakfast and the nightly manager's get together.
Practically two free meals a day. Everything was right about this hotel including the price. Highly recomended.

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.
