Hilton St Charles -

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen many people mention this hotel.  Is it a safe and decent location?  Walkable to night life (Music, bars) and other things a first timer should see if they had only 1 night in NOLA?   I was looking at a haunted pub crawl, but the location seems to be about a mile away.    We are 3 ladies and want to be safe when walking around at night.  Any advice and tips are appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Its in a decent location-- not quite the Quarter but not far from it. Safety in New Orleans is something you need to be vigilant about. The city generally is fine but does have pockets of very unsafe places. Is this one of them? No. But be aware of your surroundings especially at night as the stretch leading back from the French Quarter to your hotel will be a bit less crowded than where you were coming from.

Very walkable-- head down towards Canal St and then you enter the French Quarter. Hotel Monteleone is close by with its amazing Carousel Bar which should be a must visit for any first timer.

Everything is supposedly haunted-- save your money on the tour and just go bar hopping. With a little research you can hit some amazing places that are all very close to where you are staying. Carousel Bar is one. Sazarac Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel (another Hilton family hotel worth looking at staying) is also great. If you want to see something that really feels haunted check out Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop at night.
