While certainly not the largest airport hotel, this Hilton located directly across the street from MSY is very, very nice. It has a great restaurant and sports bar, a nice gift shop, pool/excersise facilities, good amount of meeting rooms, gorgeous lobby area and courtyard and, of course, the great Hilton service. Rooms are real nice too. I'd reccomend it for anybody visiting MSY who wants to stay near the airport. Hilton just opened up a Garden Court Inn near the airport, but I have not seen it yet.
