First time at this Omni location and I must say we had a great time! Walking distance to most food and attractions. If you are leaving for a cruise I suggest you stay here! Friendly staff and most helpful for any of your needs. On checkout there was fresh eggnog and gingerbread cookies with a live jazz band.

My husband and I booked with the Riverfront Omni because of the reputation of the French Quarter location. We both expected the same level of service. We were sorely disappointed. The riverfront hotel property itself is lovely. The location is great. However, the staff and the manner in which they treat their customers leaves a lot to be desired. The...

The high ceilings in the room (premier king) made the room feel extra large, not that the space overall wasn't large to begin with. The bed was extremely comfortable and so too were the pillows. The bathroom amenities were good. Closet space was adequate. I only had breakfast at the onsite restaurant, which was okay. I would recommend this hotel...

My stay at this hotel was pleasant. The room, the staff, the atmosphere was great. My only issue was the price for parking. I believe hotel parking should be subsidized or free. Other than the parking issues, everything else was great.

I was recommended this hotel by the convention host hotel that was sold out. This was a great hotel, excellent service, awesome beds and overall a wonderfully great stay. And...close to everything. Next time I come to New Orleans, I will stay at the Omni Riverfront again.

The Omni Riverfront is an excellent choice if you are traveling to New Orleans for business or pleasure. It is conveniently located a block from the convention center, a block from the riverfront, and a few minute walk to the French Quarter. The rooms are comfortable and clean.

I don't typically stay in hotels that are $200+ a night, but in this case I had no choice. I was attending an education conference and all the hotels in the area were $200+. This would have been a great stay for a lot less than $200. The room was clean and the hotel was very nice. The staff was...

Bed is great. Room is nice. The hotel had a location across from the Convention Center and River Walk. Go out the back door for Fulton Alley which is full of cool restaurants and bars and Harrah's Casino. NOTE: Ask for a room near the elevator or you will be in for a long walk.

First experience staying at an Omni Hotel, New Orleans Riverfront. Service was excellent, Room was clean and comfortable. Great Location with Fulton Street at the back door. Found a new favorite place to stay. Avery at the front desk was over the top friendly and of curse we love Ren, the charming concierge.

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.
