The staff at the Blake Hotel New Orleans is the best. Everyone is extremely courteous and helpful. The room was clean and tidy. The common areas were also kept tidy. The workout center was very handy as well as the business center.

The hospitality was great. The personnel were helpful and courteous. If there was something missing in our rooms it was delivered before we returned. The convenience of a restaurant with good food was a plus.

With only a couple of blips(too much hot water and too few washcloths), we had no real complaints with the Blake. I deal location for walking trips to the FQ. Perfect room size with very ample closet. The desk staff and housekeeping was very aggressive, friendly and knowlegeable. Hope to return soon.

My wife, son and I stayed three nights. The location is close enough to the French quarter to walk in but far enough to be quiet at night. The rooms were clean. The staff was great.

good hotel close to lots of locations. we came in on the train, used uber to get to the hotel; afterwards we walked to all of the location we'd planned to visit. This was a good place to stay for the location and the service.

Summer pricing for this hotel is beyond a bargain. Monday was $79, Tues was $59. Outstanding hotel for the money. Excellent location, amenities and cleanliness. Use the airport shuttle for a round trip $44 fare for a quick trip and downtown meetings, since taxis/Uber is almost that much, and renting a car means $38 a day parking at the hotel... More

We stayed three nights in New Orleans at this facility. Overall, it was an enjoyable stay, the accommodations were fine with few exceptions. First, there was no cold water at the bathroom sink only hot and warm. Second, the valve in the shower was difficult to master (it was unlike any we had encountered and there were no instructions).

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.
