Great hotel for the price, location was walking distance to everything but not in the middle of everything so it was a wonderful get away from the party scene but still close enough to be a pet of it! I used a groupon to book and got everything. We asked for, I will definitely be back:)

We were there for the Guns 'n Roses show. The hotel was very convenient for where we needed to be. Almost everything was very smooth, from check in, to check out. Didn't spend any time in the room to speak of, but, the experience was great.

Accommodation is above average but staff are not honest. Was advised telephonically that parking fee was to be waived if vehicle picked up before 8am but this fee was charged despite us checking out earlier.

Enjoyed our stay at the Blake hotel. Location was conveniently close to important points of interest and staff was very helpful. However, I found the parking fee of $38 ridiculous. Parking for guests should be free!

I'm going to try to be objective as I can following our bad experience. But first I have to make others aware of the fact that parking is off site at a rate of $40 a night. That is what we expected from a hotel in this area. However, we didn't expect the 1 1/2 hour wait for car next... More

The staff was very pleasant and so helpful but our room was very lackluster. The door which at some point was painted, now has the paint peeling. Also our closet door doesn't open all the way due to the fact that the cabinet holding the fridge and microwave is sitting too close to it. There's no pool, no continental breakfast... 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.
