After reading some of the reviews, I was pretty optimistic about spending a week at the Hotel de L'eau Vive. We were looking for the real New Orleans experience and were not disappointed. Yes, the hotel is old which is part of the charm of it. We were in unit 403 which we found to be very spacious with 2...

We stayed in Suite 104, a two bedroom, one bath suite. The living room and kitchen area was very large. The bathroom was a bit strange. It was a circular spa tub with a shower head in it. It had hot water and great pressure, though. The space is large enough that it could be renovated to have a smaller...

An old converted building that is looking really tired on the outside, and only slightly less so on the inside. The lift indicator lights were not working so there is no indication of whether it is working, or which floor you are at. Requires an act of faith! We had a two bedroom unit but it had only one bathroom....

What a great little place! We were so surprised at what a great place this is, right on Decatur Street, so it's close to the French Quarter and Harrahs. The room was like a one bedroom condo, with a sitting room and little kitchen. If you opened the blinds it looked right out onto the pool and little courtyard. It...

This is an old building which from the looks of things was converted to a condo in the 80's. We were in room 103 for 4 days this week. I expect other reviewers are right in saying that the rooms differ a lot. We had a spacious living/dining area, kitchen equipped with the basics, everything very clean. Staff was helpful....

We must take into account this building dates back to 1842... Originally part of a sugar plantation, hotel, garrison, bordello, dormant and in 1983 renovated to what it is today.. I watch Hotel Impossible hosted by Anthony Melchiorri and have learned what is or not tolerable in a hotel... We stayed in a two bedroom one bath room suite on...

Just got back from a one week stay. I was curious what I would find after reading the reviews, but it was fine. Every room is a different configuration of a very old, squeezed in building in N.O.

The Hotel is well situated, literally one minute from the French Quarter, and is a very friendly establishment. The apartment was a good size, with a full kitchen. It was clean, towels were changed daily and the bed linen once in the week. The front desk staff were very helpful and even printed urgent documents we needed to sign from...

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.
