We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was clean and gorgeous! The staff was all really friendly, especially Ms. Kenya who checked us in! The beds were comfy and we felt totally safe the whole time. The only slight downfall and the reason I did not give 5/5 is the location. It's a bit of a trek to get...

The service received from the first phone call before booking through the entire stay was perfect. The rooms were very charming (small and ideal for a couple - we had 3 children in tow). The location was ideal (we were going to the market during the day and the superdome at night). This hotel is 1 block from the streetcars,...

The room made me book...it was so nice! Biggest bed I have ever seen. The location of this hotel is perfect, walking distance to Bourbon St and French Market and Casino and the Square - and the tram cars. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

The bed was comfy, bathroom looked newly remodeled,clean, there was also central air with a system control switch in the room and not a noisy wall unit.Decent location to food and tourist areas. I even dropped my toothbrush on the floor and called the front desk to ask if they had one I could purchase and they had complementary ones...

The hotel is definitely old. Rooms are smal and they will appreciate some extra cleaning. AC is noisy and some sort of "ON-OFF" $ 40.00 for the valet parking service is way too much. Keenya has been of great help, she did her best.

My husband and Brother and I stayed here for 4 nights April 2015. The Location was great, walking distance to bourbon street and other attractions. The hotel is old but in good condition, price is reasonable and is right next to a great breakfast/brunch restaurant. Overall a good value.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently. The hotel's location was perfect & the room decent but we were so disappointed but the staff. Troy checked us in & other than (expensive) Valet Parking had no idea about other parking options or cost. He told us that there was a convention in town & unless...

The hotel staff was rude and we needed extra pillows and some blankets but they don't have any extras so I will never recommend this hotel to anyone at all I will stay with Hilton. The hotel is in a great location but one block down the street is a Westin and a Hilton so don't stay at this hotel

Had inner room (no window) on 3rd floor-comfortable and roomy. Good coffee available 24hours in lobby. Room serviced well- toilet paper/tissues/bathroom supplies always topped up. Good sized fridge in room. Daily newspaper to room. Only short walk from Canal Street/French Quarter/Riverside walk. Staff friendly and helpful. Would return if in New Orleans 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.
