Foursquare Tips

  • "The bad news: The WiFi here isn't free. The good news: It's also really slow." - Conan O'Brien
  • Welcome to 1998 where the Internet costs $17/day
  • Bourbon St. is only a few blocks away. You can walk to it in about 10 minutes or take a cab for about six bucks. Then get crazy and party like you're 21 again.
  • In house restaurant, Drago's, is not good at all. Unhelpful staff, uninspiring food, overpriced. Best avoided.
  • WIFI is not free! =(
  • Great Hotel. Staff is friendly and elevators are fast. Across from Harrah's and about 15min to the Qtr. Valet is $45 and Self is $35.
  • The beds are heaven!
  • Why do they expect us to pay for internet?
  • Chase ATM, second floor.
  • Staff down in the restaurant have all had sad faces on. Not very warm and friendly.
  • Ride the glass-walled elevator to the top for a great view. Worth the 30-second detour.
  • Newt addresses the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans on 6/16 where Newt will be checking in.
  • Lots of great food at Drago's Seafood Rest and plenty of parking
  • Perfectly located. French Quarter is easily walkable. A streetcar stop right outside the hotel. Our city view room facing the west had beautiful sunsets.
  • If you're here for a special event in one of the ballrooms, get the bread pudding! It's magnifique!!!
  • AT&T customers this is a Wi-Fi hot spot for us...Whoop Whoop!!
  • You can't go wrong with this Hilton; clean & modern, as you'd expect. Good location, ~5-7 min walk to Bourbon St. Note that while next to the convention center, is still a 10 min walk to the entrance.
  • If you need to heat up leftovers, visit River Blends Cafe on the second floor for the microwave available 24/7.
  • Great breakfast and good coffee.
  • The Cafe Dumonde gift shop across from the cafe has the best prices on their coffee & beniegt mix.
