From the minute we pulled up we received excellent service!!! Our room was beautiful! Everything is clean which is the most important thing we look for in a hotel. Now the best part: Fulton Street Bistro!!!! Wow...they make the absolute best gumbo I've ever had! The French Dip sandwich is incredible! The hamburger is out of this world! The shrimp...

Our room was on Fulton street and it was very quiet. The Hotel is across the street from the River Walk Mall, the trolley station, the bus stops out front. Fulton St is lively at night and is lined with several bars all with good deals on food and drinks even crafted beers at happy hour. The street ends at...

Hotel employees are very courtious and friendly. Beds were comfortable, room was quiet. A/C was quiet with just the right amount of hum to drown out the little bit of background noise. Great place to enjoy riverwalk and warehouse district.

We heard a dog bark all night long with the paper thin walls... $$$ was right if you can "put up" with the animals and thin walls... I think this Hotel hosts the Saints fans when they have home games at the Superdome❤️❤️❤️...

I will not go into detail, but before you book this hotel I suggest you check the yelp reviews. I wish I had! However, I will say that the service on this hotel is nonexistent. Where in room dining experience as well as the restaurant at the hotel was deplorable.

They thought it was funny to curse with us standing there. It was very unprofessional. I don't know if they assumed because we weren't dressed up that we were those type of people that use profanity but we are not. My husband is a youth pastor and was very offended at the words used. It was a slip up. It...

We stayed at the Omni for two nights, it was fairly comfortable and the room looked nice but it wasn't really clean, the toilet had black mold all around the inside rim and the carpet was a little crunchy. When the housekeeper cleaned our room she put my shoes underneath the desk and behind the rubbish bin and out of...

Staff very knowledgeable about city. They gave excellent directions to places in the downtown area. Saved a lot of time and energy. They knew the amount of time it would take to reach different businesses around the city and in adjoining areas.

Great place to stay in New Orleans! Within walking distance of the French Quarter, great shopping and dining. It's always great to stay at an Omni, as they know how to take care of you! Awesome bar and restaurant right in the hotel.

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.
