This hotel was definitely mediocre. The staff was friendly, and acknowledged problems, but failed to have the issue fixed. We stayed on the 11th floor. The room was very noisy and had no water pressure for the shower. The room to be exact was 1113. We told the front desk there was no water pressure and she acted like she... More

This is a very nice hotel in a convenient location. Soft towels, firm bed, in-room safes--what more could you ask for? The cafe had excellent crab cakes and was quiet and clean. Lobby has computers and is tastefully decorated. Our only complaint was that the door lock malfunctioned during our entire stay.

There is no on-site parking. There is a parking garage a block away you can use and of course pay for. They DO have valet for double the price (plus tip). The room was nice. Comfortable beds. Staff was very friendly. The attached restaurant was great quality and very tasty!

This was my first stay at Blake. I got a great rate on Priceline for my 2 night stay. Super polite and helpful Keduin assigned me a comfortable room facing St Charles.

Very clean hotel. Excellent customer service, went above and beyond when asked. House keeping was on the ball, kept room clean and very polite. Restaurant was excellent. Only a steps away from trolley and cab service and just blocks from all the excitement.

Short walking distance to Bourbon Street. Definitely recommend this hotel. Price was great. The only downfall I wish the onsite parking was cheaper. I did park on another parking garage outside of the hotel which was half the price and it was only a few minutes walk back to the hotel.

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.
