My friend and I stayed here in April 2017 while visiting New Orleans. If you are using this hotel as a place to store your stuff and sleep while visiting the city, this is an excellent bargain choice. If you are planning on spending a lot of time in the hotel or using the hotel to relax, I might suggest...

I chose the Blake because of its location (right in the middle of the Central Business District, which is near the French Quarter) and the price. I went off-season and the price was quite reasonable. The service was very helpful and they even saved me a little money by suggestions I self-park instead of valet park, since I needed my...

I found the information that I received over the phone call booking to be inaccurate, which created accommodation problems for our family of 6. The information I received was inaccurate regarding parking, bed capacity and breakfast. The check-in staff was rude and unhelpful! The check-out staff was much more customer service oriented, however. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and the...

The quality and space in the rooms were excellent, the air conditioning was good quality and easy to use. The fittings in the bathroom were a bit poor.

A little bit old-fashioned; clean and we had a good stay. Stuff was friendly and helpful. Close to Downtown - only afew minutes to walk. No parking available, must use a separate parking house. Would book it again.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood 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.
