The hotel and the location were great. We had so much to chose from. The only thing I would have liked is not being able to get a luggage cart, it's there policy to have a Bell person do it. But that is great service, so a good thing unless your in a rush.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. It is great to hear that you had a nice stay, per policy like you did state is that a bellperson will help you with luggage if needed. We look forward to welcome you back on your next visit to Nola. More

The Omni Riverfront is a wonderful place to stay in New Orleans. The hotel is convenient to the Riverwalk for shopping, near a streetcar stop and the staff really care about you. Ask Ren for help booking a plantation or swamp tour. He is awesome!

I stopped here on my way to FL. Everyone was kind polite and efficient! Very appreciated since it was 1 AM, wonderful bed and pillows, clean room, and perfect air-conditioner! worth $100 for the AC alone, my allergies didn't react with this AC. VERY APPRECIATED.

Great place to stay! Close to the casino, shopping and if you don't mind walking, the Quarter is just a few minutes walk. This will definitely be our new go to place when we come down to NOLA...which is a few times a year!!!

We stayed at the Omni Riverfront Hotel the night before our cruise. We arrived very early for check in and the desk clerk said she was sorry but did not have our room ready. She asked for mu cell number and 20 minutes late texted that she had our room ready. We were amazed! The location is great. It is... More

The Omni Hotel riverfront is in a great location for company meetings without the distractions of the French quarter. Located directly across the street from the outlet mall and the Hilton riverfront, this hotel is almost adjacent to the cruise line terminals. The service staff was friendly and competent. The rooms were clean and spacious. The only downside was the... More

Great location if taking a cruise. You can walk out the front door, cross the street and be at the cruise ship terminal in 5 to 10 minutes. Absolutely no need to take a cab. The Riverwalk Collection also runs from the cruise terminal east to the Hilton Hotel. This is a great place one can spend time walking through... More

The hotel is comfortable and on a smaller scale.

All OK, a convenient hotel for Convention stays. The room was long and narrow, the furniture placement was awkward for watching the television. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant were average

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.
