I want to thank Caitlyn at the front desk for making my wife feel extra special on Her birthday. We stayed on an extremely busy weekend, yet the front desk handled the chaos professionally and quickly. The bell man Marco was more than helpful and friendly. Once again Caitlyn ( spelling??) made our trip when she surprised us with a... More

The hotel was clean, comfortable and convenient. We walked every where we went. The staff was very friendly. The only issue I had was parking, and it was not the hotel's fault. We arrived and parked in the parking garage next door. There was a "public" parking sign out front. When we checked in, our clerk mentioned the valet parking... More

Our overall experience was excellent. The room although small was very clean. We both use CPAP machines and found there was not enough outlets. The personnel was both friendly and helpful. The location was convenient with trolleys not too far away. Parking is limited and we parked at the hotel for a charge of $38/night.

The absolute worst place I ever stayed. No parking, photos do not corresponding to reality, rooms are tremendous old. Staff is not polite. We left one day earlier because the hotel is too bad and we did not enjoy the City. Would not recomend it even for my worst enemy!

This is a great location for a hotel. Not far from Canal St, plenty of restaurants, casino, malls, etc. The restaurant in the hotel was pretty good as well. The hotel itself had an old vibe to it. I thought the rooms were a little small for my liking. The night front desk Supervisor, Bree, was great. I looked forward... More

Stayed here while attending a conference at the Hyatt up the street. The rooms were large and clean, if a little dated. At around a third of the price of the Hyatt I definitely think I made the right choice and would gladly stay again.

Stayed for 3 days. Comfortable, easy to find off the interstate. The staff were helpful and friendly. Only about 5 blocks from the French Quarter, the casino, Café Du Monde and more. Nice view overlooking Lafeyette Square. There is a trolley stop right across the street so if you want to hop on ($1.25 one trip, $3.00 all day) you... More

Our stay at the Blake Hotel in New Orleans was anything but satisfactory. The room we were given was no bigger than a janitor's closet hidden away in a back corner. It was also behind an ice machine that rattled all night long. Needless to say celebrating our 51st anniversary was very disappointing. At check-in, which at 4:30 p.m., I... 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.
