Stay here for business when in New Orleans - good location, and very comfortable. Fitness center is nice, along with complimentary waters in the room. They have good security - with a watchman at night. Wish they had a free breakfast!

I stayed here for four nights for a conference. The conference was actually across the street at the Marriott yet I loath large conference hotels. The JW was quieter but also was within walking distance to many fine attractions and restaurants. The concierge lounge was above average. Ask for a corner room as it gives you a bit more space....

My husband joined me for a business trip we were able to combine with a little vacation time. The hotel is in a great location, right on Canal Street just across from the French Quarter so blocks from wonderful places like Cafe du Monde, Mr. B's Bistro, and of course, Bourbon Street. Wonderful location, lovely staff, the room itself was... More

It was a nice hotel, the room did smell a but like stale smoke. We paid for a corner room, which I would NOT do again, because the view was super ugly. The price seemed pretty excessive for what it was. The pool WAS nice & heated, we enjoyed that. It was close to everything.

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.
