The desk clerk ( forgot to write his name) was extremely funny and down to earth. Very professional. Helpful with suggestions for eating out and sight seeing. Would love to visit again in near future.

This hotel was a very nice find and although it is not in the French quarter it is such a short walk away. In fact, it is a short walk from most everything. It is clean and very charming. The Ruby Slipper is a café next door that has the most amazing breakfast but go early because the crowd lines... More

I got a room with no window, but that's not that bad. The room and the bathroom are quite spacious. The bed is big, soft and comfortable, I fell asleep almost immediately after my head touched pillows :) The staffs are very nice. The hotel is next to Ruby's slipper, you can have breakfast there. And it's also close to... More

Our granddaughter and I stayed in this wonderful hotel. I knew nothing about this hotel by we loved the location, cost and website. The room was huge, 4 poster comfortable beds and helpful staff. We will stay here again. The Resturant was The Ruby Slipper that connects to the hotel. Excellent brunch menu and food.

The location was very convenient and the most an Uber cost was 10 dollars if we wanted to get around but the average was 5. We checked in early and the room was ready and exactly what I ordered. When we checked out early, a signature was needed and I was on my way. We could walk to the ww2... More

We enjoyed a few nights at the Pelham and thoroughly enjoyed it! The location is excellent, it's just one block away from Canal street so we didn't need our car at all during our stay. The receptionist was very helpful when we arrived, giving us local information about where to go for lunch and telling us about a tour we... More

I was visiting New Orleans during the July 4th/Essence festival weekend so hotel prices were jacked up! I was going to stay across the street at the Best Western, but found a lower price with the Pelham at the last minute. Initially, I was little concerned about the size of my room and the fact that it had no windows.... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this cute boutique hotel close to most of the attractions in NOLA. It is perfectly located within walking distance to French Quarter and Bourbon Street but at the same time away from the crowd and loud noise as well. There are unlimited restaurant options and cafes too. The public transport is one block away.... More

We decided on The Pelham after reading several reviews, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Even though the hotel is small, it has a lot of character. Our room had two queen beds, very comfortable and good pillows! I will say that our phone chargers didn't stay in the outlets too well.. not sure exactly... 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.
