The Blake Hotel turned out to be very comfortable and convenient and reasonably priced. It's an older hotel that has undergone some renovations. You can can see some...

I would stay here again if I am traveling on budget. The rooms could be larger. There should have been one more chair for a room like this, which fits 2 people. It was extremely inconvenient to drink coffee in a table with just one chair.

The hotel was nice. It was roughly 5-10 minutes away from Bourbon Street but good nonetheless less. The problem I had the most was every time I left the room I had to rekey my card, which was really annoying.

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.
