Was in New Orleans for business and was very pleased with this hotel, amenities, resturaunt, bar and staff!! I will definitely stay there in the future and recommend Old No. 77 to family and friends. Check out the food and bar service. Top drawer.

Came to NOLA to celebrate my birthday with friends and my sisters. Fell in love with this hotel. Such a great vibe, creative, artistic, clean and comfortable. Not like all the other franchise hotels. Near everything we needed. I've been recommending to friends since returning from my trip.

I stayed here for a wedding. Staff, room, service and location were ideal. Rooms, aside from comfort and amenities, had unique decor and touches to them- such as an "honor bar" that you could cash in $5/day if you opted to be "green" and bypass fresh towels and housekeeping.

This is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The service inside and out (valet) was top-notch! Location is close enough to the "hustle and bustle" of the city, but far enough away to feel relaxed. We will stay here again on our next visit.

We loved this hotel and we will definitely be staying again. We only had one issue and it was the service at the bar down stairs. All of the other staff was friendly. The rooms were great. The beds were very comfortable and we had a great view. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New Orleans.

I was looking for a hotel in either the warehouse or lower garden district. For the price, I could not beat this hotel. Not having been there before, I was extremely impressed by the decor, artwork, and overall atmosphere. Check-in was easy, rooms were fantastic, and the food was impressive (I had the avacado toast for breakfast - it was... More

As a former NOLA resident, this hotel is what NOLA is all about. History, nostalgia, reinvention & evolution, diversity, craft cocktails, cool, friendly & inviting, and gorgeous food. When I showed up with my 3 small children, I could tell immediately we are not their target demographic but we had a blast. Walkable to the Quarter but in the much... More

We have travel to New Orleans quite a bit and this is the best place we've stayed. It's got a great bar with knowledgeable and friendly bartenders. The rooms are unique and the beds are very comfortable. It is close to everything. We will definitely return!

We loved the hotel, staff, and location. Food was great in the cafe, however there were many other great restaurants in walking distance. Parking was expensive but unfortunately that's just the nature of the beast in downtown hotels.

We stayed somewhere less-than-perfect the night before and called the Old No. 77 hotel at 9am asking if we could check-in ASAP and they quickly found us a perfect room and an excellent price. I couldn't be more of a hotel cleanliness snob and this place was perfect. Charm of old New Orleans with modern updates. Location was excellent and... 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.
