We liked the location of the Blake as you can walk to most places, get the tram right outside the door(Very noisy runs all night) and the tour bus stops across the street. Lots of food and drink places on most streets nearby. The main complaint was the front desk, tried several times to use the hotel phone to make...

The staff was excellent, our a/c was not working properly and in less than an hour staff had it going. Great restaurant attached to hotel and property was central located. The parking was a little high, but most other properties were the same

Was able to walk everywhere I needed to go in no more than 15 minutes. Front desk staff very friendly. Hot cookies if you come in at night. Rooms have a musty smell but are clean. Fresh fruit in gym daily.

The hotel is nice and clean, It is walking distance from many attractions, 5 minute walk to the casino, 10 minute walk to bourban street, and about 20 minute walk to the french market. close enough to the attractions yet far enough that you don't have to deal with the crowds when you want to rest

Great location and close to many things. Clean too. However, if you are a light sleeper, this may not be the place for you since the St. Charles Trolley passes by right in front and you can hear it for a couple of blocks.

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.
