My wife and I stayed here for five nights. On check in, I was a little surprised by the small rooms. But this hotel excelled at the most important things for me. Those being a very clean room, non-smoking, quite, a comfortable bed and house keeping not knocking on the door at 8am. The staff at this hotel are also...

Had coffee maker, Fridge and microwave, which is always nice. There's a small pool, laundry facilities And small gym. Parking is at a premium, but Is comparable to the...

The hotel is located around .3 miles from the French Quarter. The room was clean and the staff friendly. The breakfast items were replenished quickly. We did have some issues with our room. First if all, are room was located next to the elevator and across from the ice machine. We used my wife's IHG points for the stay and...

We stayed 2 nights in this recently renovated hotel. The location was ideal and there was easy access to the many sights. We walked and bused to most places. I read about the barn doors on the bathroom so i wasn't surprised by it, but i can understand how some people wouldn't like it. My only suggestion is that the...

Reviewed 24 July 2015

Rooms were clean, AC was powerful, blackout curtains were effective, and staff was friendly. The location is excellent because you are far enough removed from bourbon to actually get some sleep, but close enough that walking is easy (and safe). National WW2 Museum and Superdome are both very short walks. The pool is tiny, and located essentially next to a...

We had a great weekend at this property. Rooms are small but very clean and trendy. Breakfast was great-cool pancake machine. Quick and safe walk to bourbon street. We found $10 flat rate parking just 3 blocks away at Heal garage at 300 Lasalle street.

We stayed at this property at the end of a long road trip. It is a beautiful, modern hotel. It was about a 20 minute walk to the restaurant I wanted to visit in the French Quarter, so the location was great for us. We loved the decor and the room was very clean. We will definitely visit this hotel...

The room was small but clean. The parking lot is small and difficult to park a larger vehicle. Breakfast is your typical hotel breakfast. It is very convenient to arena and dome- about a 15-20 minute walk. I did not use the pool but it is super small.

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.
