great hotel. Central to everything. Love the rustic decor ..French quarter, Shopping, Frenchmen street all within walking distance. Staff were so helpful at checkin and the staff in the restaurant were perfect! Would definitely return! Only drawback was the housekeeping. One day no towels or TP, another no housekeeping at all. Making this a 3 star not 4

After the hustle and bustle of New York, a few days to unwind in beautiful New Orleans was what was needed. The Old No.77 Hotel is a place to stay and step back in time. Stepped in history and a throw back to vintage decor and rustic charm, this was the best hotel we stayed in on our 5 weeks... More

Great space. Great location. Helpful staff. Excellent value for money. The highlight is the fit out- very cool industrial design features. It was a little noisy on the street side but the bed was comfy & the room spacious.

Great location, fun, modern look & feel. But the cleanliness left something to be desired. Common areas, hallways, foyer were not very clean. One day no housekeeping came at all. Reception not very alert or helpful. Also,for the price, there were very few amenities: no coffee maker in the room, no coffee in the lobby for early risers, no bathtub,... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in room 373 - beware the loud grinding metalllic noises 24-hours a day, which kept us awake at night. We asked on 3 occasions regarding this noise and were eventually told by the hotel engineer that it was the elevator shaft and that the rooms below had the same issue. We were not offered... More

My husband and I went to visit a friend and go to her wedding and we enjoyed every minute of this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was beautiful and quirky and the rooms were clean and beautiful. The restaurants food was phenomenal and I would most definitely stay here agin.

Amazing stay! Nothing too much trouble - from arrival to departure we felt special and cared for - especially our dog! Highly recommend. High-end but worth it. Location great for walking everywhere. Extremely comfortable bed! Excellent service/staff made us feel like extended family. No hesitation returning.

System broke down and staff couldn't suggest anything or make us happy or offer us a drink for waiting 45 minutes for the key holder to come. Was not happy waiting as if we had to be somewhere that night.

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.
