Nice place, best thing was the friendly service. Rooms were nice. Everything was clean and had a great view from the 6th floor. Thanks to Kim and Carla for the friendly service and Sade on the front desk. For the location and the quality, the rate was exceptional!

We stayed at this hotel on August 15, 2014. The hotel is very nice and the staff was very friendly. The room we had was smaller than I would have liked but it was very clean. Great little café in the hotel with friendly staff. The location is ideal if you want to be in walking distance of the Superdome... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The price was right and the location and customer service was even better. My room was clean and nice. It was bit smaller than most rooms I've stayed but it met all of my needs during my short stay. This hotel is within walking distance of Everything! I will definitely stay here again!... More

We stayed here for one night prior to leaving on a cruise. However if I were to come back to New Orleans to stay a few days I'd stay here again. The hotel is newly remodeled and very nice. The rooms are small but but nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. This hotel is a good location being close to both... More

Don't go by some of the reviews. Nothing wrong with this hotel. Rooms are very spacious, and clean. Very polite front desk. Close to the quarter but far enough from the party. Beds are comfortable and ac works great. Only complaint is the water pressure for the shower. A little to low but it will do. Give it a try.... More

I stayed last Saturday night and we had a great time, we had two rooms that were next door like we requested. The staff was great about telling us where to go eat or which tourist stuff to see. But the best part were two employees , Whitney was always smiling when she checked us out and the manager Kenneth... More

Great location easy walking distance to the Quarter and dining places, great and helpful staff, even though I checked in very late. Only issues were the constant elevator issues the two nights I was there and that breakfast was very slow in the morning. Would stay there again.

I stayed here a couple weeks ago and I found my accommodations to be very decent. This isn't five star, but my room was clean, and the staff was amazing. I was concerned after reading some of the reviews online, but I was pleasantly surprised. My favorite part about this experience was the staff. Everyone I spoke with was fantastic,... More

We had bought a Groupon for 3 days at the Blake Hotel. We loved it right away. Newer hotel, well decorated with quaint clean rooms. Whittney was more than happy to recommend many local upscale bars and resturants for us to dine at. We had a medical emergency which I called down to her. She immediatly called a hospital emergency... More
