This is place is undoubtedly overpriced, but what do you expect when you are booking a hotel in downtown New Orleans that's popular with business travelers with big fat expense accounts? The building is pretty neat and historic inside and out, and the lobby is lovely. There are a couple of very nice bars on property that offer decent daily... More

A Timeless and most enjoyable property. Staff so helpful and friendly and the ambience of the place made it feel a little surreal at times. There was even a little old shoeshine guy in the atrium. Also a wonderful old clock that seemed to be made before clock-makers were discovered. Being Australian our accents gave us away and the American... More

The Roosevelt is beautiful and opulent, transporting me to another place and time. It is conveniently located to the French Quarter without the distractions of the quarter. Staff were very attentive and anticipated our needs. Cleaning staff were excellent as well. Enjoyed our stay thoroughly!

For the price of the rooms there is not a coffee maker in the room, there is no coffee in the lobby like at much cheaper Hilton chains like embassy suites. There is a coffee shop and the line is about 35 deep currently. I ask at the front desk about coffee and they tell me they can send some... More

My wife and I stayed here on a short business trip to New Orleans and really enjoyed the Roosevelt. This was our second trip to NOLA. The first time we stayed in a hotel on the French Quarter side of Canal and it was pretty loud. The Roosevelt is located on the other side of Canal which meant that at... More

I was my boyfriend's +1 for a large national corporate gathering/retreat. I would say that the hotel did a great job managing the attendees. Our room was ready and available upon check-in at 10am on a Thursday morning, which was fantastic after a red-eye and connecting flight. My San Francisco wardrobe (long sleeves and slacks) did not travel well to... 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.
