Tip: If you do have a rental car while staying at the Hilton Riverside. Park in the Harrah's casino parking garage a block away. You can get a validation from the casino to save money. Otherwise, pay $20.00 a day in the Hilton Riverside's garage.
If you are part of the Harrah's Total Rewards, call Harrah's to make hotel reservations to receive very good rates.

First, make no mistake about it-this property is huge, encompassing not only its own conference space, but two towers and sprawling along the Mississippi above the Riverwalk. At a good pace, it would take us several minutes to walk from our room in the riverside rooms, through the building, and down the other hall to the conference space. When booking a room here, be sure to ask what type of room you're getting and where in the building it is, if walking is a problem for you. Most of the standard rooms are in the riverside building, executive or deluxe rooms are in the main tower located at the entrance to the hotel, and Executive Floor Concierge Class rooms are in another tower at the far end of the property. The rooms are clean, attractive, and fairly spacious. Any requests to room or maid service were prompt, but I unfortunately cannot say the same for laundry service-I had to call 4 times to get my laundry picked up, and it was not delivered back to the room automatically, as I had to call and request delivery.
For the health conscious, the Health Club by Hilton is one of the nicest hotel health clubs I've seen. Not only do they offer playing courts for volleyball, racquet ball, squash, tennis and basketball, but they have Spin and Pilates classes, a "Full Swing" golf studio, Nautilus Nitro Plus, and a full Precor cardio theater, in addition to other amenities. There are two pools on the property, one adjacent to the main tower, the other along the riverside building.
Need to shop? Not only is the Hilton directly connected to the Riverwalk, they're also home to a variety of shops. The Hilton also has several good quality restaurants, most notably Kabby's On The River, whose Sunday jazz brunch has been voted best in the city, and Kabby's Sports Edition, which has been voted Best Sports Bar/lounge. Their restaurants are good quality, although the service can be spotty.
As a Hilton, it provided quality and a reliable product. If you want a familiar, reliable hotel, you cannot go wrong here. I would stay here again, but if I did, I would probably request a room in the executive tower on a higher floor!

You can't beat this hotel for convenience, with all of the major attractions in easy walking distance.
The staff and service were fantastic. Staying in a tower rooom, we had access to our own private concierge and each of the ones we dealt with were more than helpful. A real big thank you to Ann, who arranged a really late checkout for us.
The view of downtown from our room on the 22nd floor was awesome. My wife didn't want to leave the room she was so taken by the view.
If you are planning a trip to New Orleans, this is the hotel to choose. Be sure and pay the extra money for a tower room. It will be well worth the extra money because of the cash you'll save on breakfast every morning; tower residents have access to a private area on the 26th floor that features a breathtaking view of the Mississippi River and downtown waterfront along with free Continental breakfasts and afternoon snacks. Actually, the snacks were enough, one afternoon, to fill me up after having had a big lunch earlier in the day.
Another tip to those having access to the 26th floor: You can also get free soft drinks out of the big refrigerator located by the breakfast and snack table; we always carried a few extra to the room--hey, it saved buying them out of the mini-bar--and no one said anything.
The hotel is also connected to the Riverwalk--a huge mall with many stores and restaurants--and Harrah's Casino is just a few steps from the front door of the hotel.
We were able to get a room rate of $98 a night for a room that usually rents for $259 a night by searching the Hilton website.
