This is a perfect hotel. It was not that expensive, and it was modern & clean. It is perfectly located, because even though it is technically downtown, it is literally 4 blocks from the French Quarter- Cafe Du Monde, French Market & Jackson Square. The staff was impeccable, they went out of their way to accommodate us and directed us... More

I stayed here when it was the W. You can change the name but the bed sinks in and hurts my back. Small room and bathroom. Bring your own soap you only get one bar for sink and shower. Really no place to sit except the bed.

Across from gambling, the French Quarter, the edge of downtown, this hotel lets you be convenient to most of NOLA. The pace varies from lively to frenetic - this is not a quiet get away hotel, but this is not a quiet get away city. The room we had was comfortable, especially the mattress. It, like most newer hotels, was... More

Room wasn't cleaned up between our 2 nights even tough we called when we realized at 6pm that it hasn't been cleaned up.

I was really excited to come this hotel until I got disappointment after disappointment. Step by step : The room we got was a king size bed and appeared to be actually small. Nice decoration but still small. The window was so dirty that we could not actually see anything. When I say dirty, I mean it is obvious it... More

Location of this hotel was great. We had a view of the Mississippi River and looked down on the pool on the 4th floor roof. Rooms were pleasant with a nice selection of toiletries in the bathroom. It was just a short walk into the French Quarter and Harrahs casino next door. It would have been nice to have coffee... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. Rooms very modern and staff most helpful. There was a young man working in the bar and he was delightful. We didn't have food there. One little thing I needed a needle and cotton and they couldn't supply one. They are usually in the rooms in hotels of that standing.

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.
