Fodor's Expert Review New Orleans Airport Hilton

901 Airline Dr., Kenner, Louisiana 70062, USA See on Map

Cameron Todd

Stationed across from Louis Armstrong Airport, this Hilton provides convenience and comfort for those flying in late or departing early, or anyone with reason to stay in this part of town and away from the action. Attentive service and other amenities make this property more of a full-service hotel than just an airport jumping off point.


Rooms cater to business stays, with work desks, large TVs, and free Wi-Fi.

YOU SHOULD KNOW There are a few smoking rooms available in this hotel, which sometimes adds to an unintended lingering smell in other rooms and throughout other parts of the hotel.


All hotel bathrooms have bathtub shower combinations. Good enough for us.

The hotel has the option to book handicap accessible rooms and bathrooms.


Lobby is roomy with plenty of seating, complimentary computer workstations, a snack shop, and several large conference and meeting rooms. Good and fine lobby.


The pool and courtyard area are quite large, and there is also a heated jacuzzi attached to the pool.


There is a spacious fitness room with Precor machines.


Cafe LaSalle serves a breakfast buffet and a la carte menu from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Second Line Sports Edition offers Cajun and Creole-inspired bar fare for lunch and dinner.


Second Line Sports Edition is a pleasant, casual sports pub in the lobby.


Getting Around

There is a free hotel shuttle to the airport.


There is an IHOP (3-minute walk) right down Airline Highway from the hotel, and Dooky Chase (4-minute drive), an old New Orleans' Creole comfort staple, has an outpost before security in the airport.


There are a few smoky old haunts in Kenner, like Southshore Tavern (5-minute drive) or KJ's Place (6-minute drive). The drive-through daiquiri is another fun drinking option in this part of town: try Chell's Daiquiri down Airline Highway (2-minute drive, or New Orleans Original Daiquiris (10-minute drive) on Veterans Blvd.


It's a solid stay when proximity to the airport is key, and there are pleasant extra perks, like the full gym and outdoor hot tub.
