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.

Was high than others to stay in a little tiny room that if you turned to quick getting out of the shower you would walk into the wall. Was like a closet with running water. If you asked for something like Kleenex and we told them we were both sick it took an act of congress.

This was a comfortable hotel with a nice complimentary breakfast. It was a 5 minute cab ride to the Convention Center, but the price justified it. The room was nicely furnished and quiet, which allowed for productive work between sessions.

I booked on a solo trip to N. O. Although the room was small it was nice and big enough for two people. They have a breakfast included and I was taken by the pancake machine. Cookie bake at 5 pm. The staff at the hotel was very friendly. I will definitely visit again.

The hotel itself is conveniently located and clean and comfortable. The only issue I have is the tremendous amount of single use cutlery and crockery used. Literally EVERYTHING, plates, bowls, knives, forks, cups is all plastic or polystyrene. In today’s world where there
