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.

I opted for a corner room with windows. It was just as shown in pics, high ceilings, spacious, good WiFi, walking distance to conference and everything else. Zero street noise in my case, which was great. Helpful staff and all the amenities I needed.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November, the room was clean and decorated in a classic New Orleans style. We had a room with no windows so it was rather dark but it was what we booked at the end of the day so can't complain. Staff friendly and helpful. Perfect for a short stay

This a great hotel if you want to be close to Canal and away from traffic. Its close to the Casino and River Walk. The downside is it has no fitness room and no pool but they consider them selfs a resort. Not sure what type of resort this is but least the rooms are clean.

Be very careful when you book here. It would never have occurred to me to check that a hotel room had windows. I don't consider windows an "amenity"! I reserved through Booking.com (The room was NOT cheap) and only found the small print indicating that my room might not have

This elegant art filled hotel did not disappoint! The room was amazing and even though we were street level with a window, it was quiet as a mouse. The king sized bed was extra comfortable and the staff was super kind. It’s a block from Canal and right next door to the Ruby
