I'll try to make this review to the point, but I could not have asked for a better stay. I arrived during a very busy weekend (4th of July) with almost all of the other hotels in the city sold out, and so many things made my stay extra enjoyable. Location: Perfect. About 10 minutes walking to Convention Center, Superdome... More

I should start by mentioning the people who really made our stay special. Ronika, Sarech and JT who worked reception. We got this hotel by chance bidding on hotwire, we initially bid for 3 nights and planned to stay elsewhere closer to the airport on our final night. We actually swallowed a 10% cancellation charge to the airport hotel to... More

This hotel is part of the Choice Hotels group. They offer a "Best Rate Guarantee", and it is worth shopping around a little, as I found a cheaper rate within 5 minutes and therefore received our second night free of charge. Location is great as it is right on the St Charles street car line, with access to most popular... More

My sister and I stayed for a short weekend trip and loved coming back to our room after being out and about in the heat all day! Sade was wonderful and friendly when we arrived back rather late one evening! We will definitely be recommending The Blake. Thank you for making us comfortable during our trip!

I booked this room over the phone with Jennifer and she was wonderful. We had a very late arrival and I was worried that the room would not be held or switched on us. But everything was just as Jennifer described and a very fast and friendly check in. The room was a great value, clean and comfortable.

My three teenage girls and I went to New Orleans for the first time, June 9 thru 1, 2014. We had and excellent time the moment we entered the hotel. Friendly and courteous staff made us feel welcome and comfortable. The staff was also very helpful with hotel special perks and near by attractions. The hotel rooms were clean, comfortable... More

I checked in on Mem Day 2014 about 6 pm. I expected to be greeted by a bellman, but there was no one on duty. Jontierre, at the front desk had to bring the luggage to the room and there was a lot of luggage. The room was very nice and clean, but the elevator was lackluster. It was close... More

Check in was disorganized and not adequately staffed. There is only one elevator for 12 floors so imagine how long you must wait. And while laying in our bed saw a huge cockroach run across the wall. Value surely doesn't mean cleanliness should be forgotten. Ick!

I am deeply sorry about your check in experience. We did recently have one of our staff members finish college and move on to peruse their carrier. We already have a new addition completing training and we apologize for the short staffing over the last weekend. As far as the roach, people may not believe me, but I can honestly... More

After my train arrived late in to New Orleans, and I was tired and a bit disoriented, it was a real joy to have Jon-Tierre at the front desk point me in the right direction towards a place to grab a quick bite to eat. She and the other staff also went out of their way to help make sure... More
