First off the staff was amazing! Always helpful with whatever we needed! The rooms were clean and the beds/pillows were very comfortable! The only issue we did have was that our door kept giving us issues when trying to open it. It wouldn't unlock even though the light turned green. We had to try at least 10 times. We did... More

The valet service was appalling. I immediately learned on the first day that I need to call 15-20 minutes in advance. Well so I thought. It would still take another 15 minutes to get the car even after calling in advance. I was never greeted by the valet service. I have never experienced such service at a hotel that offers... More

I was there for a couple of nights and everything was great from check in to check out. Our bus was late but the sales manager stayed there late to welcome us with a smile. Kim, JT and the overnight auditor was always happy, helpful and smiling. Kim went out of her way to make sure i got the extra... More

My friends and I only stayed there one night but we enjoyed our time there. The staff was friendly. The main elevator was broken so we had to use the staff/service elevator. There isn't a lot of room to park and unload your car so we had to circle the block until we were able to "create our own spot".... More

We stayed at The Blake this past weekend and it was not the best stay. Our original room had a broken curtain, no number on the door, the air did not work, and the window paint was peeling. Once we figured out the air was not working we called the front desk and they did accommodate us with an upgraded... More

I must be honest and say that prior to booking my room at The Blake Hotel I was a tad bit apprehensive. Many of the reviews had me concerned. But I decided to take a chance and book a room... And btw I was only staying one night so how bad could it really be? But when my family and... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at The Blake Hotel, and it was Absolutely a Wonderful Experience. We received such excellent service from everyone. I knew our stay would be a Special One, by my first conversation with Andy, the Director of Sales. Both Andy and Alyson,the Sales Coordinator, truly went over and beyond to make our stay at... More

"Sarah the young lady at the Reception desk was a SAINT" This was my first trip to New Orleans and I took several hours searching for hotels over the internet, not really knowing which hotel to choose. I went with the Blake Hotel because it was my initial choice from a Groupon option but because it took me so long... More

Overall this was a bad experience. The lobby smells like sulfur or sewage. The staff was rude except the valet guys but it took 35 min to get our car and cost $30. The air conditioning is sooo loud you can barely hear the tv that only has a handful of working channels. I booked our room through a 3rd... More
