Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although the Queen room is rather small, our stay was nice. Location is perfect for tourists, walking distance to several attractions. Street car access right outside of door was helpful also. I would stay here again.

I didn't want to be in the French Quarter but close to it, so this hotel was perfect. We caught the St. Charles Avenue streetcar (to the Garden District and Uptown) right outside the hotel. It was also very convenient to catch the Canal Street streetcar to City Park. The room we had was small but not tight for two...

Staff is slow and inattentive, but the location (just across Canal from Royal) is very good. Since you probably won't be spending much time in your room, this place will work for a late night on the town.

My husband and I arrived on a Sunday afternoon. When we checked in a wonderful, sweet, pleasant women named Donna waited on us. She couldn't have been nicer. Very friendly with great conversation. Found out why we were there and upgraded us without us saying a word or requesting it. How nice is that! The next day we had some...

It was noisy at night. Had a hard time sleeping. It was Easter weekend, so I am thinking that is why it was noisy. We did love the room with the balcony. And we enjoyed the location. We could walk everywhere.

This hotel is in a great location, around the corner from Bourbon Street, shopping, restaurants, the casino, River Walk and other attractions are also within walking distance. The hotel staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the best places to find things you are looking for. The rooms are really nice and clean; if the jr suite is available...book it!!!...

Great spot, great staff, great hotel.... but! Watch out for the extra fee for internet, gym, etc that they sneak on you at the end! Very close to the french quarter, street car stop right in front, free beer upon arrival!

Dear Rachaelo352 - Thank you for the many compliments regarding our location, hotel and team.

We were there for French Quarter Fest and had no complaints. We arrived @ 11:30 am and were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready. The only glitch was that our safe wasn't working, so we had to wait a bit for a repairman. In all fairness, they were not obligated to give us a room until 3 pm, so...

Its not often you can find a "value" hotel in the US and especially in New Orleans near all the nightlife, but we were lucky enough to book in early enough that we got a really good price and were absolutely stoked with this 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.
