Subject: Re: New Orleans Hotels
Becky, We have stayed at the Riverside Hilton on a number of occasions. Though it's just another anonymous hotel, it is situated far enough away from the French Quarter to be quieter. The Riverside Walk shops, the Aquarium and the riverside park are at the door. We usually walk to the French Quarter through the park, which is much nicer than walking up Poydras. It's also a short walk to Charles Street where you can hop on the streetcar and visit the Garden District or go to the Zoo.

We have stayed in the French Quarter as well, but prefer the Riverside. See my message #32496 about our visit to New Orleans last year. Lucy, Toronto
