Sarah was professional and nice. Her smile reminds me of all kindness of the people I met in Vietnam. The room was clean. Great location. 10 minute walk to French Quarter. The only cons is I had to come down and refresh the keys everyday. All in all, this is a good place to stay for a period of time!

I want to start off by saying that I did not stay the night in this Hotel, but rather was in it several afternoons for a conference. I cannot speak to the amenties or the rooms, but I can speak to the conference space and the customer service experience. The conference spaces were small and were difficult to find, as... More

Reception and room were quite good, but Internet service presented two different options, but both with very low performance, despite price difference. It is not acceptable. Such nice hotel also needs a better restaurant for lunch/dinner. On top of that, breakfast buffet is only available on weekends.

I recently traveled to New Orleans for my birthday and my stay was amazing. Mardi Gras Carnival was going on and many of the parades went right by the hotel. Talk about prime real estate! The hotel is only minutes from the French Quarter, entertainment food and shopping which makes the location even more awesome. The room was comfy and... More

Southern Hospitality at its finest at this joint. Every time we walked in and out of the place we were greeted by the Valets, bellboys, and desk staff. My only complaint is the HVAC system. My heater sounded like when you put shoes in a dryer. Other than that 5 star service. The breakfast was a bit pricey but worth... More

Stayed here a few nights ago, and I was wowed the minute I pulled up and was greeted by Nick and Harley in valet. The parking was a bit pricey, but I can't complain because these guys are very quick.

We were really impressed by the modern furnishings, comfortable bed, and the awesome view! We had only planned for a one night stay, but with the affordable rates, we couldn't resist one more night. Le Meridien...our new favorite!

The conference I had attended had blocked the rooms. The hotel was pleasant enough but the heating system was extremely loud and the shower flooded the bathroom when used regardless how it was closed. It reminded me of the new hotels in China, great to look at afar, but the execution and fit and finish mis the mark.

I did not choose this hotel, it was chosen by a business association conference I attended. I'd like to state at the outset of this review that the staff were all courteous. However, the amenities and room conditions were sub par, especially for a Starwoods hotel. We arrived late on a Monday evening. There was no bottled water in the... More

I had big expectations for my trip to New Orleans. My first encounter at the hotel was the worst I have ever experienced in my 20 years of travel.

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.
