Trey at the Blake Hotel made my stay easy among the craziness here in New Orleans. His organization and knowledge was key.i was able to walk everywhere from the hotel and he was right that parking is limited anywhere during Marti Gras week.I will stay here again. Loved it !

All the front desk staff I encountered at the Blake Hotel were very helpful and courteous. Especially helpful was a young man named Ray, who assisted with my checkout, my car valet service, and securely storing my bags between the checkout time and the time I was actually able to leave. He did this with a positive attitude and a... More

We were impressed at first with the convenience and value of this hotel, but once the weekend Mardi Gras parades were in full swing, they required us to wear wristbands to get into the hotel, and informed us that we would be charged $30 if we lost our wristbands. Yes, you read that right. They'd charge us $30 to access... More

from the moment we walked in, Keduin made us feel welcome, Jamie helped us in numerous ways and both of them remembered both my wife's and my name within a day...during the first week of Mardi Gras when they had a multitude of things to deal with no less. Don't expect a huge, luxurious room, but it meets the need... More

I like staying here for the convenience to the Civic Theater, Smoothie King Center and Business District in general.. Easy and friendly check in with Trey at the front desk. Hotel guests get security credentials(wrist bands) for your stay during Mardi Gras. Parades were rolling so the hotel wants to assure that guests are secure and enjoy full use of... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Blake. It is an older hotel but a clean room with tall ceilings. It is right on st charles so a few short blocks to bourbon.

Asked if we could have friends or visitors (That were staying at other hotels) to come up to the room and were told NO or only if they paid $30 for a wrist bracelet.

Nothing overly exciting. Good, easy stay. Clean rooms, everything you need. No complaints, nothing over the top. The cafe in the hotel we ate at every morning for breakfast, second to best biscuits and gravy I've ever had. If traveling during Mardi Gras season, the parades go right in front of the hotel so it's noisy but the parades were... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
